D+H Announces Dividend Reinvestment Plan
/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, Jan. 14, 2015 /CNW/ - DH Corporation (TSX: DH) ("D+H" or the "Company") today announced that it has adopted a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the "Plan").
The Plan allows Canadian residents a convenient means to acquire additional common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") through the reinvestment of cash dividends paid on D+H shareholdings.
The primary advantages of enrolling in the Plan are:
- the convenience of automatic reinvestment of cash dividends in Common Shares
- the ability to purchase Common Shares without having to pay commissions, service charges or brokerage fees
Common Shares purchased under the Plan will, at the discretion of the Company, be issued from treasury, be purchased on the open market through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), or be acquired through a combination thereof. Common Shares issued from treasury are eligible for a discount of up to 5%.
At this time, the Company intends to have the Common Shares issued from treasury at a 4% discount to the weighted average trading price of the common shares on the TSX during the five trading days immediately preceding the dividend payment date. The 4% discount will remain in effect for all cash dividends that may be declared, if any, by DH Corporation's board of directors beginning in the first quarter of 2015 until otherwise announced.
Eligible holders of Common Shares who wish to participate in the Plan should contact the financial institution, broker or other intermediary through which their Common Shares are held to provide appropriate enrolment instructions and to ensure that any deadlines or other requirements that such financial institution, broker or intermediary may impose or is subject to are met.
A copy of the Plan and an accompanying series of Questions and Answers is available on the Company's website at www.dh.com in the "Investors" section under "Dividend Reinvestment Plan", and is also available from CST Trust Company, the Plan agent, at www.canstockta.com in the "Investor Services" section under "Dividend Reinvestment Plans" or by calling 1-800-387-0825.
