For further assistance, please speak to an independent professional tax or financial adviser.

Electronic communications

Shareholders can elect to access certain shareholder documents, for example the integrated report and financial statements, electronically via Mondi’s website rather than receiving them by post. Electing to access documents in this way will mean you will receive an email alerting you each time Mondi circulates a new shareholder document or communication. This will contain a link that will direct you to the appropriate page on Mondi’s website where you can view the documents at your own convenience.

This has a number of benefits including faster notification of information, helping to reduce Mondi’s costs and being more environmentally friendly.

Shareholders on the main Mondi plc register can elect to receive documents electronically by logging on to the Capita Share Portal at www.capitashareportal.com. For further information please contact Capita Asset Services.

Mondi Limited shareholders and Mondi plc shareholders on the South African branch register can elect to receive documents electronically by contacting Link Market Services South Africa Proprietary Limited on +27 (0)11 713 0800 or by emailing corpactfax@linkmarketservices.co.za.

Account amalgamations

If you receive more than one copy of any documents sent out by Mondi or for any other reason you believe you may have more than one Mondi Limited or Mondi plc account, please contact the relevant registrar who will be able to confirm and, if necessary, arrange for the accounts to be amalgamated into one.

Fraudulent transactions

Shareholders should be aware that they may be targeted by certain organisations offering unsolicited investment advice or the opportunity to buy or sell worthless or non-existent shares. Should you receive any unsolicited calls or documents to this effect, you are advised not to give out any personal details or to hand over any money without ensuring that the organisation is authorised by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and doing further research.

If you are unsure or think you may have been targeted you should report the organisation to the FCA. For further information, please visit the FCA’s website at www.fca.org.uk, email consumer.queries@fca.org.uk or call the FCA consumer helpline on 0800 111 6768 if calling from the UK or +44 20 7066 1000 if calling from outside the UK.
