Recent legislative changes to the Corporations Act 2001 effective 1 April 2022 means there are new options available to you as a securityholder as to how you elect to receive your communications. We will no longer send you physical meeting documents unless you request a copy to be mailed.
We encourage you to provide your email address so we can communicate with you electronically when securityholder notices become available online for such items as meeting documents, dividend statements and annual reports. You can make a standing election to receive some or all of your securityholder communications in physical or electronic form.
To review or update your current communication preference simply logon to our share registry’s website investorcentre.linkmarketservices.com.au. You will need your portfolio log in details or your Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) or Holder Identification Number (HIN) and select the Communications tab at the top of the page.
If at any time you require an additional copy of a communication, or you need more information about the options available to you, please contact Link Market Services via LMSComms@linkmarketservices.com.au.
