TORONTO, Aug. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rogers Communications Inc. (“Rogers”) today announced that it has amended its Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the “Plan”) to permit, at the Board of Directors’ discretion, a small discount when shares are issued from treasury under the Plan. Under the Plan, shareholders may elect to have dividends on their shares reinvested in additional Class B Non-Voting Shares (“Class B Shares”) of Rogers.
In connection with the previously declared dividend payable on October 3, 2023 to shareholders of record on September 8, 2023, Class B Shares will be issued by Rogers under the Plan from treasury at a 2% discount from the Average Market Price (as defined in the Plan). Previously, Class B Shares received by participants under the Plan were purchased in the Canadian open market with no discount from the Average Market Price.
Existing participants in the Plan will automatically have the discount applied to the reinvestment of their dividends on the October 3, 2023 dividend payment date. Registered shareholders resident in Canada or the United States wishing to join the Plan can obtain an enrolment form from Rogers’ agent, TSX Trust Company (Tel: 1-800-387-0825 (Canada and the United States); 416-682-3860 from outside North America; or e-mail at email@example.com). Eligible beneficial or non-registered shareholders must contact their financial institution or broker to find out details on how they can participate.
In order to participate in time for the October 3, 2023 dividend payment date, enrolment forms from registered shareholders must be received by TSX Trust Company before the close of business on August 31, 2023. Eligible beneficial or non-registered shareholders should contact their financial institution or broker well in advance of the above date for instructions on how to enroll in the Plan.
