The SIP operates as follows:

Each month the Trustee uses participants' contributions (which may not exceed £125 per participant per month) to purchase shares in the market.  These shares are called "Partnership Shares".

At the same time the Company allots to participants via the Trustee or instructs the Trustee to purchase in the market one "Matching Share" for every three Partnership Shares purchased that month.

Dividends paid by the Company to the Trustee in respect of the Partnership and Matching Shares are used by the Trustee to purchase shares in the market.  These shares are called "Dividend Shares".

 

# The aggregate number of shares held by David Mellors includes 229 Shares acquired in an ISA on 9 September 2013 at £1.97 as a result of a standing instruction to reinvest dividends received on Shares held in the ISA.
