Old Mutual takes steps to promote e-comms



Old Mutual plc announces that it will shortly be posting letters to
shareholderson its South African branch register and on the principal and
Namibian sections of its main share register in the UK to inform them of its
intention to implement the provisions in the Company's Articles of Association
relating to electronic communications, in line with the applicable provisions
of the UK Companies Act 2006.



In summary, these provisions remove the legal requirement for companies to
post paper copies of certain shareholder communications to all shareholders.
Instead companies can make such documents available by publishing them on
their website. Shareholders who wish to continue to receive documents by post
may still elect to do so.



We believe that, by implementing these provisions, we will achieve a reduction
in the environmental and financial cost of printing and posting routine
documents, but in a manner that will still allow shareholders to receive
information through the communication channel of their choice.
