What’s the next step?
So what should shareholders do next?
1: Read the circular which you should have received in the post. This contains the forms that you needed to vote.
2: Decide how to vote. If you want to vote, you must either attend two meetings in London or return your forms to the company by January 26. You can also vote online.
What will happen?
If the deal goes through you’ll get your cash, your entitlements to Verizon shares and your new Vodafone shares by March.
If you do nothing you will automatically receive Vodafone’s income option. You will also become a member of the Vodafone Share Account, which is how Computershare will hold new ordinary shares for you.
Remember, Vodafone needs to know your address and bank details if it is to send you money owed.
