Aristocrat’s share registry manages all your shareholding details. Visit investorserve.com.au to access a wide variety of holding information, make changes to your holding record and download forms.

Alternatively, you can call Boardroom Limited on 1300 737 760 (in Australia), or +61 2 9290 9600 (international) or email email@example.com
Your SRN and/or HIN identifies you as the owner of your shares. Your HIN or SRN appears on your original holding statement as well as other shareholder communications.
Holder Identification Numbers (HINs) identify CHESS Sponsored holdings (also referred to as Broker Sponsored holdings). Securityholder Reference Numbers (SRNs) identify Issuer Sponsored holdings.
If you have entered a sponsoring agreement with a broker (or another CHESS sponsor) you are a CHESS Sponsored Holder. This is also referred to as a Broker Sponsored Holder.
If you are not a CHESS Sponsored Holder, you are an Issuer Sponsored Holder.

The Board determines Aristocrat’s interim dividend at the time of its interim results announcement and its final dividend at the time of its full-year results announcement. Refer to our events calendar for an indication of prospective dates.
Information on Aristocrat’s dividends, including when dividends are paid, are set out here.
'Cum-dividend' means that the shares carry the entitlement to the dividend. If shares are purchased while they are 'cum-dividend' the holder is entitled to the recently announced dividend.
'Record date' is the date used to determine the shareholders on the register who are entitled to receive the dividend and the number of shares on which it will be paid. The record date is the date where all changes to registration or banking details must be made for them to apply to the relevant payment.
'Ex-dividend' means that the buyer of shares is not entitled to receive a dividend. Therefore when Aristocrat’s share price is quoted 'ex-dividend', the dividend belongs to the seller, not the buyer. The market price will reflect whether the shares are 'ex' the dividend entitlement.
Aristocrat’s historical dividend payments can be accessed here. Aristocrat currently has a discretionary dividend policy, with the Board regularly reviewing the level of dividends paid to shareholders. This policy is taken as part of Aristocrat’s overall capital allocation priorities.
The level of franking available to Aristocrat’s historical dividend payments are detailed here. The Board continues to assess the level of dividends and franking available to pay to shareholders.
Aristocrat has a mandatory direct payment of dividends program for all shareholders. Payments by direct credit will ensure that you receive your dividends in a safe, efficient and secure way. A dividend statement in the form nominated by you (electronic or paper) will be sent to you for your tax records.
Shareholders are asked to complete and submit Direct Credit payment instructions with Aristocrat’s share registrar. For more information, contact Boardroom Limited on 1300 737 760 (in Australia), or +61 2 9290 9600 (international), go online to investorserve.com.au or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shareholders who have not submitted valid Direct Credit payment instructions will receive a notice from Boardroom Limited advising that: i) the relevant dividend amount is being held as direct credit instructions have not been received; ii) the relevant dividend will be credited to the nominated bank account as soon as possible on receipt of direct credit instructions; and iii) no interest is payable on the dividend being withheld.
These notices are sent to shareholders who have not completed and submitted a Direct Credit of Dividends instructions on the record date of the relevant dividend.
To provide your Direct Credit of Dividends instructions, or to enquire about the receipt of historical dividend payments, contact Boardroom Limited on 1300 737 760 (in Australia), or +61 2 9290 9600 (international), go online to investorserve.com.au or email email@example.com.
Aristocrat only has provision to make dividend payments in Australian Dollars (AUD). If you have nominated a non-AUD bank account to receive dividends, your dividend payment will be converted to the currency of your nominated dividend bank account at currency exchange rates applicable at the time of transfer.
Aristocrat's Directors consider whether the Company’s Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) should operate each time a dividend is declared. The DRP is currently not active.
The DRP Rules and the ‘Dividend Reinvestment Plan Application or Variation Form’ are available from Aristocrat’s share registrar, Boardroom Limited on 1300 737 760 (in Australia), or +61 2 9290 9600 (international), online at investorserve.com.au or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shareholders should note that: (i) Shareholders who elect to participate in the DRP and who do not revoke their elections will automatically participate on the next occasion the DRP is activated; (ii) the fact that the DRP operated in respect of any dividend does not necessarily mean that the DRP will operate in respect of any further dividends (a separate decision is made for each dividend); and (iii) when the DRP does operate, the DRP Rules provide that the number of shares that DRP participants will receive will not be determinable on the Record Date determined by the Board.
Aristocrat does not provide tax advice. Please seek assistance from your accountant, tax or financial adviser.
Shareholders should seek their own financial advice, however it’s recommended that shareholders maintain records of purchases and sales. At the time of payment of each dividend payment, Aristocrat will provide payment advice with details that might be helpful.
