Shareholders’ Services Web Communications
On 3 March 2009 we wrote to shareholders explaining that the Company had decided to implement the authority it had received from Shareholders to make its shareholder communications available electronically through the Company’s Web site.

Please note that following the re-branding of the merged company, the Company’s Web site url is: www.taylorwimpeyplc.com.

The benefits of web communication are that it:

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

The Company provides hard copy documentation to those shareholders who have requested this and is, of course, happy to provide hard copies to any 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.taylorwimpeyplc.com.

On-line facilities for shareholders
You can access our Annual and Half Year Reports and copies of recent shareholder communications on-line at www.taylorwimpeyplc.com.

To register for on-line access, go to www.taylorwimpeyplc.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 access, you can make on-line enquiries about your shareholding and advise the Company of changes in personal details.

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 0446 (calls cost 10p per minute plus network extras; lines open 8.00am to 4.30pm Mon-Fri). To deal, you will need to provide your surname, postcode, date of birth and investor code (which can be found on your share certificate).

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 many of the UK daily newspapers and is also available on our Web site www.taylorwimpeyplc.com. It appears on BBC Ceefax and other digital television interactive services. It may also be obtained by telephoning the FT Cityline service, telephone: +44 (0)9058 171690 and ask for ‘Taylor Wimpey’ on the voice activated response (calls cost 75p per minute from a BT landline, other networks may vary).

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 or telephone them on + 44 (0)20 7930 3737.
