How can I get a copy of the Annual Report and Interim Report?

If you sign up to e-Communications we will send you a PDF version via email together with a link to our online versions. PDFs of all the Company’s Annual Reports can be accessed through the Results & Reports section of this website.

Whilst we are asking our shareholders to consider this option as a green alternative to the printed versions, if it is not appropriate for you please contact us and we can send a copy to you directly via post.

Why should I use e-Communications?

Legislation was passed in 2006 which allows us to distribute certain documents to our shareholders electronically. This is both a more efficient and quicker method of distribution and eliminates some of the cost of producing Company documents, such as the Annual report, as well as being kinder to the environment.

Inchcape is making great progress on understanding our impact on the environment such that we are best placed to contribute to a sustainable future. With the adoption of electronic communications or E-comms, we have gradually reduced the number of printed annual reports we produce from 12,000 in 2006 to 8,000 in 2010.

To receive email alerts in the future, which tell you when Company documents are available online, please register at https://www-uk.computershare.com/investor where you can also set up a bank mandate to receive dividends directly to your bank account and submit proxy votes for shareholder meetings.

Who will use my email address if I sign up to e-alerts or e-Communications?

Your email address will only be used by Inchcape plc and Computershare to provide you with shareholder communications.

Can I change my mind about the way I receive my shareholder communications?

Yes. You can change the way you receive communications at any time. Please contact the Registrars or follow the instructions at the bottom of every email notification that you receive from us.

How can I change my email address?

Please inform the Registrars of any change in your contact details at Computershare, Registrar’s Department, The Pavilions, Bridgwater Road, Bristol BS99 7NH.

What should I do if I receive unsolicited telephone calls and/or documents?

In recent years, many companies have become aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are typically from overseas based ‘brokers’ who target UK shareholders, offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments. These operations are commonly known as ‘boiler rooms’.

It is not just the novice investor that has been duped in this way; many of the victims had been successfully investing for several years. Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports. If you receive any unsolicited investment advice:

Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation

Check that they are properly authorised by the FCA before getting involved by visiting http://www.fca.org.uk/register/ and contacting the firm using the details on the register

Report the matter to the FCA either by calling 0800 111 6768 or visiting http://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/scams/investment-scams/share-fraud-and-boiler-room-scams

If the calls persist, hang up.

If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you will not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

Details of any share dealing facilities that the company endorses will be included in company mailings.

Please speak to our Registrars on 0370 707 1076 if you have any concerns.
