Shareholders' Services

Web communications

At the Company's 2007 Annual General Meeting, shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favour of authorising the Company to introduce web communication at a future date.

On 3 March 2009 we wrote to shareholders explaining that the Company had decided to implement this authority and would in future make its shareholder communications (including the 2008 Annual Report and Accounts) available electronically through the Company's Web site www.taylorwimpey.com.

The benefits of web communication are that it will:

  • enable the Company to reduce its printing and postage costs significantly
  • enable shareholders to access information faster, on the day documents are published on the Company's Web site; and
  • reduce the amount of resources consumed, such as paper, and lessen the impact of printing and mailing activities on the environment.

Shareholders were invited to confirm whether they still required hard copy documentation and the Company is, of course, happy to provide hard copies to such shareholders upon request.

Electronic communications

The Company also encourages shareholders to elect to receive notification of the availability of Company documentation by means of an e-mail. Shareholders can sign up for this facility by logging onto our Web site at www.taylorwimpey.com.

On-line facilities for shareholders

You can access our Annual and Interim Reports and copies of recent shareholder communications on-line at www.taylorwimpey.com.

To register for on-line access, go to www.taylorwimpey.com and navigate through to Investor Relations/Shareholder Information, and click on the service you require. To access some of these services you will first be required to apply on-line for a User ID.

Once you have registered for on-line access, you can make on-line enquiries about your shareholding and advise the Company of changes in personal details.

On-line proxies

Shareholders may also submit forms of proxy for shareholder meetings on-line at www.taylorwimpey.com.

Beneficial holders of shares with 'information rights'

Beneficial owners of shares who have been nominated by the registered holder to receive information rights under section 146 Companies Act 2006 should direct any communications and enquiries to the registered holder of the shares and not to the Company or its Registrar.

Duplicate share register accounts

If you are receiving more than one copy of our Annual Report, it may be that your shares are registered in two or more accounts on our register of members. You might wish to consider merging them into one single entry. Please contact Capita Registrars who will be pleased to carry out your instructions in this regard.

Low-cost share dealing services

We have arranged both telephone and on-line share dealing services for UK resident Taylor Wimpey shareholders to buy or sell up to £25,000 worth of Taylor Wimpey plc shares. The services are operated by Capita Registrars. To use the services either visit www.capitadeal.com or telephone +44 (0)871 664 0454 (Calls cost 10p per minute plus network extras). To deal, you will need to provide your surname, postcode, date of birth and investor code (which can be found on your share certificate).

J.P. Morgan Cazenove Limited also offer a postal share dealing service on behalf of the Company. For further details please contact them direct on +44 (0)207 155 5155.

Taylor Wimpey and 'CREST'

Taylor Wimpey shares can be held in 'CREST' accounts, which do not require share certificates. This may make it quicker and easier for some shareholders to settle stock market transactions. Shareholders who deal infrequently may, however, prefer to continue to hold their shares in certificated form and this facility will remain available for the time being, pending the likely general introduction of dematerialised shareholdings in due course.

Taylor Wimpey share price

Our share price is printed in most UK daily newspapers and is also available on our Web site www.taylorwimpey.com. It appears on Ceefax (BBC1 page 232) and C4 Teletext (page 520) and may be obtained by telephoning the Financial Times Cityline Service, telephone: +44 (0)9058 171690 and ask for 'Taylor Wimpey' on the voice activated response (calls cost 60p per minute).

Gifting shares to charity

If you have a small holding of Taylor Wimpey plc shares, you may wish to consider gifting them to charity. You can do so through 'ShareGift', which is administered by a registered charity, Orr Mackintosh Foundation Limited. Shares gifted are re-registered into the name of the charity, combined with other donated shares and then sold through stockbrokers who charge no commission. The proceeds are distributed to a wide range of recognised charities. For further details, please contact Capita Registrars or approach ShareGift directly on www.sharegift.org/sharegift or telephone them on + 44 (0)20 7930 3737.
