For the financial year ending 31 March 2017 and beyond, dividends will be declared in euros and paid in euros, pounds sterling and US dollars, aligning the Group’s shareholder returns with the primary currency in which we generate free cash flow. The foreign exchange rate at which future dividends declared in euros will be converted into pounds sterling and US dollars will be calculated based on the average exchange rate over the five business days during the week prior to the payment of the dividend.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)

Dividend Reinvestment Plan

The Company offers a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP), which allows holders of ordinary shares who choose to participate to use their cash dividends to acquire additional shares in the Company that are purchased on their behalf by the Plan Administrator through a low cost dealing arrangement. DRIP is available to all shareholders provided that they do not live in, or are subject to, the jurisdiction of any country where their participation in the plan would require Vodafone or the plan administrator to take action to comply with local government or regulatory procedures or any similar formalities.

In accordance with the terms and conditions of the DRIP, purchases of shares may be carried out by several market transactions and may take a number of days, the consideration price taken as an average over the day(s). Note, under our revised dividend policy whereby we declare dividends in Euros, any shareholder making a partial DRIP election will receive their cash element in GBP, even if the holder is EU based or otherwise makes an election for Euros. Additionally, partial DRIP elections can only be made by institutional shareholders.

The DRIP is operated on a mandated basis and your election to participate will apply to all future dividends until you cancel or otherwise terminate your mandate or sell/transfer your shares.

Please contact Computershare for further details.

Register for DRIP

Shareholders wishing to join the DRIP should ensure that their completed mandate form is received by the plan administrator no later than 15 working days before the dividend payment date for it to be applicable.

To register for the DRIP online, holders need to register for the investor service operated by Computershare at investorcentre.co.uk. You will need your 10 digit Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) which starts with the letter I, C or G to log in. This can be found on your share certificate(s) and dividend confirmation. When on the Holding Summary&; screen, select ;Vodafone&; and click on Amend; next to Dividend Plans.

Visit our Shareholder Forms page to access a DRIP Nomination Form and to view the DRIP terms and conditions.

Bank Mandate

Bank Mandate

Vodafone pays cash dividends by direct credit only so if we do not have any bank/building society details on record for you, your payments will remain unissued. Paying dividends into a bank or building society account is a quicker and more secure way for your dividends to be paid directly to you.

Registering your bank mandate is quick and easy to do!

In order to receive your dividends directly into your bank account, you will need to register your bank details on our Registrars' website, investorcentre.co.uk. You will need your 10 digit Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) which starts with the letter I, C or G to log in. This can be found on your share certificate(s) and dividend confirmation.

If you are unable to register details online, please visit our Shareholder Forms page to complete a Bank Mandate Form and return the completed form to Computershare as directed. Alternatively, you can contact Computershare who will be able to provide the appropriate form.

Notes:
(1) In 1999 there were two interim dividends, the first of 0.624p per ordinary share and the second of 0.648p per ordinary share. There was no final dividend. Please also note that these figures have been re-stated to reflect the bonus issue in September 1999 of four new shares for every one held – the actual payments in February 1999 and August 1999 were 3.12p and 3.24p respectively.

(2) In February 2012, a special dividend of 4.0p per ordinary share was paid in addition to the interim dividend of 3.05p. This special dividend was in respect of the Verizon Wireless distribution, as announced by the Company on 29 July 2011.
