Indirect investors' information rights

Beneficial owners of shares held on their behalf by a different registered holder now have certain information rights regarding Greene King. They have the right to ask their registered holder to nominate them to receive all non-personalised information distributed to shareholders, in accordance with the provisions of section 146 of the Companies Act 2006.

Should you wish to be nominated to receive information from Greene King directly, please contact your registered holder, who will need to notify our registrars, Capita Asset Services, accordingly. Please note that, once nominated, beneficial owners of shares must continue to direct all communications regarding those shares to the registered holder of those shares rather than to the registrars or to Greene King directly.

Shareholder vouchers

Those holding shares in their own name will receive the vouchers directly. If you hold shares in a nominee account please contact your nominee provider to obtain a set of vouchers. Unfortunately, we are not able to deal with individual requests for vouchers from underlying beneficiaries. Please visit www.findaproperpub.co.uk for details of the participating outlets.

Unsolicited communication

Please note that we will never contact our shareholders by telephone. If you receive an unsolicited call from anyone purporting to be from or calling on behalf of Greene King, please do not disclose any of your personal details to the caller. You can find out more information about investment scams and how to protect yourself and report any suspicious telephone calls from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) by visiting their website (www.fca.org.uk) or contacting them on 0800 111 6768. The FCA advises that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
