Dividends

Find key details about dividends paid to Shareholders by Spirent Communications.

Payment of dividends


Shareholders are able to choose how they receive their dividends:

  • paid directly into their bank account;

  • reinvested in Spirent Ordinary Shares;

  • paid by cheque; or

  • paid in foreign currencies.

The quickest and most efficient way to receive your dividends is to have them paid directly into your bank account. It saves waiting for funds to clear and reduces the paper and postage we use. To change how you receive your dividends, either log on to shareview.co.uk or contact Equiniti.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan


Would you prefer to receive your dividends as new shares rather than cash?

As an alternative to receiving your dividends in cash, Equiniti Financial Services Limited operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) on behalf of Spirent under which you can use the cash dividend on your Ordinary Shares to buy additional Spirent Ordinary Shares in the market at competitive dealing rates.


How the DRIP works

Equiniti will arrange for the purchase of Spirent Ordinary Shares using the whole of your cash dividend. The shares will be purchased on your behalf in the market as soon as possible on or after the dividend payment date, at the prevailing market price.

How to apply


An application form and a booklet containing information on the DRIP are available for you to download in PDF format. If you would like to apply, please print the application form and complete your details, then sign and return it to Equiniti, Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex BN99 6DA. Please read the Terms and Conditions before applying.


If you would prefer to be sent a hard copy of the Application Form and Terms and Conditions, please contact Equiniti on 0371 384 2268. Calls to this number are charged at 8 pence per minute from a BT landline; other telephony provider costs may vary.

Participants in the DRIP are advised that the Terms and Conditions of the DRIP were revised following the sale of Lloyds TSB Registrars (now Equiniti) and new European legislation (MiFID – Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) implemented in the UK on 1 November 2007. As a result, DRIP mandates in existence prior to that date have become void and a new application should be made.
