Deferral of conversions between CDIs and stapled shares in respect of upcoming interim dividend
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield ("URW") has previously announced that Wednesday March 25, 2020, will be the record date for the purpose of determining CHESS Depositary Interest ("CDI") holders' entitlement to the upcoming interim dividend to be paid to CDI holders on Thursday April 9, 2020, in respect of stapled shares underlying the CDIs.
URW has sought and been granted waivers from the ASX of ASX Settlement Operating Rules 13.9.4 and 13.9.9 to allow URW to defer, and not to process, conversions between its stapled share and CDI registers during the period commencing on and including the two business days before the dividend record date (i.e., commencing on Monday, March 23, 2020) and ending on and including the dividend record date (i.e., ending on Wednesday, March 25, 2020).
The waivers will prevent a person from inappropriately receiving dividends and also provide time for pre-deferral conversion requests to be successfully matched and completed prior to the dividend record date, in each case taking account of the cross-border conversion processes and/or timing considerations in Europe and Australia.
