*Only if the scheme of arrangement between Avast plc and NortonLifeLock Inc. is not sanctioned at the Court Hearing to take place on 23 February 2022.
** If the proposed merger between Avast plc and NortonLifeLock Inc. becomes effective prior to 1 March 2022 (in accordance with the expected merger timetable available here), then no interim dividend will be paid to Avast shareholders.
Avast declares dividends in US Dollars (“USD”) and shareholders can choose between payment in USD or Pounds Sterling (“GBP”). The default payment currency for dividends is USD unless the shareholder elects to receive payment in GBP. The foreign exchange rate at which dividends declared in USD are to be converted into GBP is announced in advance of the payment date of each dividend.
Shareholders who have previously directed Avast to pay a dividend into a particular bank account and currency will be paid future dividends in accordance with those same instructions unless the shareholder instructs Avast otherwise through the process set out below.
If shareholders wish to have their USD dividend paid directly into a USD denominated bank account, they must complete the relevant mandate form which can be found at www.shareview.co.uk/info/avast/usds.
If shareholders wish to have their dividend paid in GBP into a UK bank account, they must complete the currency election form which can be found at www.shareview.co.uk/info/avast/usds.
Mandate and currency election forms should be returned to the address listed by the Registrar on www.shareview.co.uk/info/avast/usds.
Shareholders holding their shares via CREST must follow the CREST elections process to make or revoke a dividend election.
Shareholders who do not take any action, and who have not made a previous election, will receive a US Dollar dividend cheque.
Dividend policy can be viewed here.
Further questions in relation to the currency election process should be directed to the Company’s Registrar, Equiniti, on 0371 384 2030 (+44 121 415 7047 if calling from outside the UK). Lines open 8:30am to 5:30pm (UK time), Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays in England and Wales).
