Please see the section “Financial Calendar” for the date of the next AGM.

 

Will I receive a copy of the Interim report?

In line with the practice of many leading companies and with our wish to encourage the use of electronic communications and reduce costs the Company does not print and distribute an Interim Report. The interim results are, however, available to download in the Financial Reports section.

 

Does ZOO provide information to shareholders in paper format or electronically?

Information is generally provided on our website and, unless you have expressly requested otherwise, no hard copies will be distributed. We will notify you when information is made available on the website and this notification will be sent to you by post unless you have consented to email or fax communication and have provided us with an electronic address for such purpose.

If you wish to receive a hard copy of information on a particular occasion or wish to revoke your agreement to the receipt of documents via a website then please write to ZOO at the UK address or e-mail us on ir@zoodigital.com.

 

Can I change my method of communication?

Yes – you can inform us at any time that you wish to change your method of communication by writing to us at the UK address or e-mailing ir@zoodigital.com.

 

Why have I not received notification that the Annual Report is available on the website or an invitation to the AGM?

This could be because your shares are held in the name of a nominee rather than in your own name. Contact your broker or whoever you instructed to purchase the shares on your behalf and ask them ensure that your shareholding is held in your own name. Also, contact our registrars to confirm that they have your correct current contact details.

Does ZOO pay a dividend?

Since its incorporation, ZOO has not declared or paid dividends on Ordinary Shares. ZOO anticipates, for the foreseeable future, that it will retain any future earnings in order to fund its business operations, including any expansion of its services and product development. ZOO does not, therefore, anticipate paying any cash or share dividends on its Ordinary Shares in the foreseeable future.

Buying and Selling Shares

How do I contact your Registrars?

For shareholder enquiries such as changing your name, address and shareholder certificates, please contact our Registrars by writing to:

Share Registrars Limited
The Courtyard
17 West Street
Farnham
Surrey
GU9 7DR
United Kingdom
Tel: +44 1252 821390
www.shareregistrars.uk.com

The following forms are available for download:

1) Change of address form
2) Letter of indemnity – use this form if you have lost your share certificate(s)
3) Stock transfer form – use this form if you wish to transfer your shares to someone else

 

What should I do if I lose my share certificate?

A missing share certificate can only be replaced by means of the completion of a letter of indemnity by the shareholder.

If you know the certificate number of, and the number of shares represented by, the missing share certificate you should print off and complete the letter of indemnity in BLOCK CAPITALS. You will need to insert the certificate number, the number of shares, your full name and your address. The completed and signed letter of indemnity should be sent to our Registrar together with a cheque for the appropriate fee in respect of administration costs. Your cheque should be made payable to Share Registrars Ltd.

If the details of your missing share certificate are not available then you will need to contact our Registrar who will inspect the share register. The Registrar will then send you a letter of indemnity for your signature. The completed and signed letter of indemnity should be returned to the Registrar together with a cheque for the appropriate fee in respect of administration costs. Your cheque should be made payable to Share Registrars Ltd.

If the value of the missing share certificate is greater than £200 then you will also need to arrange for your signature on the letter of indemnity to be guaranteed by a UK bank, insurance or guarantee company. They may make a charge for this service.

 

What should I do if I change my address?

You should print off and complete the change of address form and return it to our Registrar. On receipt of the completed form the Registrar will amend the share register. You do not need to send your share certificate(s).

 

What should I do if I change my name?

If your change of name is due to marriage then you should send to the Registrar the marriage certificate together with your share certificate(s). The Registrar will record the change of name and return the marriage certificate to you together with the endorsed share certificate(s).

If your change of name is due to divorce then you should send a copy of your decree absolute and a copy of your birth certificate together with your share certificate(s). The Registrar will record the change of name and return the copy of your decree absolute and the copy birth certificate to you together with the endorsed share certificate(s).

If your change of name is by means of a deed poll then you will need to send a certified copy of the deed poll for registration together with your share certificate(s). The Registrar will record the change of name and return the copy deed poll to you together with the endorsed share certificate(s).

 

How do I transfer my ZOO shares to someone else?

Shares may only be transferred by completion of a stock transfer form. To complete the form you will need to insert the following information:

  1. The amount of consideration paid for the shares
  2. The number of shares in words and figures that you are transferring
  3. Your signature and, if appropriate, the signatures of any joint holders
  4. The full names and address of the person to whom you are transferring the shares

Stamp duty is payable to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on transfers of shares at the rate of 0.5% of the amount of consideration paid for the shares rounded up to the next multiple of £5.00.

Legislation will be introduced in the Finance Bill 2008 to provide that instruments transferring stocks and shares that were previously chargeable with £5 stamp duty will in future be exempt and will not need to be presented to HMRC for stamping. The measure will have effect for instruments executed on or after 13 March 2008.

If stamp duty is payable you will need to send the completed stock transfer form to:

Birmingham Stamp Office
9th Floor
City Centre House
30 Union Street
Birmingham
B2 4AR
Tel: 0845 603 0135
Fax: 0121 643 8381

You should then send the completed and stamped (if applicable) stock transfer form together with the covering share certificate to the Registrar for registration. The Registrar will prepare a new share certificate in the name of the transferee and send you any balance certificate that may be required.

 

As an executor, what should I do if a shareholder has died?

Our Registrar will note the death of a shareholder on the share register on receipt of an original copy of the death certificate. However, in order to enable the Registrar to recognise you as executor to an estate you will need to send us a Court sealed office copy of the grant of probate together with all of the share certificates representing the shareholding of the deceased shareholder. The Registrar will register the probate and return the Court sealed office copy of the grant of probate to you together with the endorsed share certificate(s).

The same procedure is required if you have been appointed as an Administrator to an estate, but in this case you will need to send a Court sealed office copy of the grant of letters of administration.

If the shareholder died without leaving a Will, the value of the shareholding is less than £5,000 and the value of the estate is less than £20,000 then the small estates procedure may be appropriate.
