Risk warning

Risk Warning

Sell shares by post

All you need to do is complete and sign the Dealing Instruction Form and return it to Link together with a valid share certificate(s). We recommend you use a secure method of postage, alternatively, you may choose to use the pre-paid envelope provided (valid only within the UK).

Dealing will normally take place once a week on a Thursday (the Dealing Day") when it is a Business Day or on the next business day if the Thursday is not a Business Day in the UK or if the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSE") is not open for business. Instructions received on any day which is not a Business Day will be deemed to have arrived on the next Business Day. All sale instructions will need to be received by 4pm on the day before (normally a Wednesday) the next Dealing Day so as to qualify for dealing to take place on that Dealing Day. Your instruction will be combined with those of other shareholders and you will not know the share price obtained until after your shares have been sold. Aggregated orders may result in a large number of shares being dealt in the market which may result in a higher or lower price being obtained or a delay in executing the order in full on the designated market.

Once your shares are sold, you will be sent a cheque for the sale proceeds (minus commission charges) and sale advice detailing the share price obtained and the exchange rate used. You will be charged a fixed fee of £17.50 plus 4.5 pence per share sold.

If you need assistance or would like to be sent a printed version of the documents, please phone the helpline on 0345 602 1587 (lines are open Monday - Friday 8:30am - 5.30pm).
