Old Mutual PLC (OML) - Old Mutual takes steps to promote e-comms RNS Number : 1998S Old Mutual PLC 28 November 2012 Ref 109/12 28 November 2012 Old Mutual plc 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.
