  • Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP)

    On 20 August 2015 Brambles announced that it had reactivated its DRP (which had been suspended since August 2011).

    Under the DRP, the date for electing to participate in the DRP as it applies to a dividend payment is 5.00pm (Sydney time) on the first business day after the record date for a dividend. If a shareholder wishes to terminate or reduce their participation in the DRP in advance of a dividend payment, the deadline for returning a DRP Variation or Termination form to Brambles' Share Registry is also normally 5.00pm (Sydney time) on the first business day after the record date for that dividend, unless the Brambles Board determines that there will be a later withdrawal date.

    A summary booklet of the DRP, the DRP rules and a multi-purpose DRP application/variation/termination form can be downloaded below:
