Unsolicited mail 

The Company is legally obliged to make its register of members available to the public. As a consequence of this some shareholders might receive unsolicited mail. Shareholders wishing to limit the amount of such mail should write to the Mailing Preference Service (”MPS”):

FREEPOST 29 LON20771
London
W1E 0ZT

Alternatively you can register online or request an application form by telephone or by email. MPS will then notify the bodies that support its service that you do not wish to receive unsolicited mail.

Unauthorised brokers (Boiler Room Scams)

Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports. These are typically from overseas based “brokers” who target UK shareholders offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments. These operations are commonly known as boiler rooms.

If you receive any unsolicited investment advice:

Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation.

Check that they are properly authorised by the Financial Services Register before getting involved by visiting www.fca.org.uk/.

Report the matter to the FCA either by calling their consumer helpline on 0800 111 6768 or visiting www.fca.org.uk/scams.

If the calls persist, hang up.

If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you will not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Ombudsman Service or Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Details of any sharedealing facilities that the Company endorses will only be included in company mailings.

Keep in mind that it is very unlikely that an authorised firm that you have no relationship with would contact you out of the blue offering to buy or sell shares or offer other investment opportunities.

More detailed information can be found on the FSA website: www.fca.org.uk and http://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/protect-yourself.

Identity Theft

Tips for protecting your ITV plc shares:

  • Ensure all your certificates are kept in a safe place or hold your shares electronically in CREST via a nominee.
  • Keep all correspondence from Capita in a safe place, or destroy correspondence by shredding.
  • If you change address inform Capita in writing or via the Shareholder Portal. If you receive a letter from Capita regarding a change of address but have not recently moved please contact them immediately.
  • Consider having your dividend paid directly into your bank. This will reduce the risk of the cheque being intercepted or lost in the post.
  • If you change your bank account, inform Capita of the details of your new account. You can do this via post or online using the Shareholder Portal. Respond to any letters the registrar sends you about this.
  • If you are buying or selling shares only deal with brokers registered in your country of residence or the UK
