Dividend reinvestment plan ('DRIP')

This plan allows you to use your dividends to buy further shares in Bodycote plc. For any shareholders who wish to re-invest dividend payments in the Company, a facility is provided by Capita Asset Services in conjunction with Capita Registrars. Under this facility, cash dividends are used to purchase additional shares. Shares are bought on the dividend payment date at the current market price. Any cash left over which is insufficient to purchase a whole share will be carried forward and held without interest, in a Client Money bank account. Any shareholder requiring further information should contact Capita on 0871 664 0381 (calls cost 10p per minute plus any network extras from within the UK; lines are open from 9.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday), or from overseas on +44 (0)208 639 3402; fax: +44 (0)208 639 1023.
