Dividends and our Scrip scheme
In its Preliminary Results Statement for 2017/18, published on 25 May 2018, SSE set out its strategy, its plans for remunerating shareholders’ investment through payment of dividends and for the operation of its Scrip dividend scheme.
At SSE’s Annual General Meeting on 22 July 2010, shareholders authorised the directors to offer a Scrip Dividend Scheme. The scheme was renewed in July 2015 and will remain the alternative to the cash dividend for the foreseeable future.
If you are a shareholder in the Scheme, you will remain a participant until you choose to withdraw. If you would like to withdraw from the Scheme, please write to Link Group , Shareholder Solutions, 10th Floor, Central Square , 29 Wellington Street, Leeds, LS1 4DL to request this. Link Group need to receive your withdrawal request no later than 20 business days before the relevant dividend payment date.
If you have any questions about the scheme, please contact Link Market Services 0345 143 4005* (UK) or +44 (0) 20 8639 3399* (overseas).
