MTN Group Limited (MTN) has appointed Computershare Investor Services (Pty) Limited (Computershare) as the authorised service provider to manage the process of locating shareholders with unclaimed dividends.
A statement from MTN said “the objective is to update and verify shareholder information to facilitate the disbursement of any outstanding dividends.”
In collaboration with Computershare, MTN continues to exercise due diligence in tracing shareholders to ensure the timely payment of unclaimed dividends.
Computershare has been entrusted with the task of identifying the shareholders, obtaining the necessary documents to verify and update their information, and facilitating the payment of any outstanding dividends owed to them.
According to MTN, since the commencement of this initiative, a substantial number of shareholders have updated their records, leading to the successful distribution of over US$905,000 in dividends.
“In collaboration with Computershare, MTN remains dedicated to reaching its shareholders and ensuring they receive their dividends. If you are a shareholder who has not yet claimed your dividends or know someone who owns MTN shares and has not received their dividends, we urge you to act,” the statement said.
It added that shareholders who have not yet updated their details or claimed their dividends, should follow the process below to claim their dividends:
