Investor FAQs

Being a shareholder

Q. What should I do with my share certificate?

A. Keep it safe. A share certificate in your name is evidence of your ownership of shares. Unless your shares are held in electronic format, you will need your share certificate when you wish to sell or transfer your shares. If you lose your share certificate or it has been stolen, you should contact the company’s registrar immediately. You may need to pay an administrative fee or other charge to obtain a replacement certificate.
