Shareholder information

Shareholder Communications

Recent legislative changes to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) mean there are new options for how Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (Fortescue) shareholders receive communications. Fortescue will no longer send physical meeting documents unless a shareholder requests a copy to be mailed.

Electronic communication has the added advantage of being timelier and more cost effective, which benefits all shareholders, and Fortescue encourages all shareholders to record an email address and select “All communications electronically” as the communication preference so we can communicate with you electronically when shareholder notices become available online, for items such as meeting documents, dividend statements and annual reports.

Shareholders can still elect to receive some or all of their communications in physical or electronic form. To review your communication preference, or sign up to receive your shareholder communications via email, please update your details via the Fortescue Investor Centre.

If you are a Shareholder and require an additional copy of a communication, need further information about the options available to you or have questions about your holding, contact Link Market Services as below:
