I hold share certificates for 50p ordinary shares (or Cumulative Convertible Redeemable Preference Shares of 1p each) in the name "BICC plc". Are these valid or do I need to take any action?
Balfour Beatty plc changed its name from "BICC plc" on 10 May 2000. Any such share certificates in the previous name of the Company remain valid and you need take no action.
Do you offer a low cost share dealing service?
Yes. Find out more about our share dealing services.
I have a small number of shares whose value would make it uneconomic to try to sell them. Is there anything that I can do?
If you only have a small number of shares whose value makes it uneconomic to sell them, you may wish to consider donating them to the share donation charity, ShareGift (registered charity no. 1052686), whose work Balfour Beatty supports.
Any shares that you donate to Share Gift will be aggregated, sold when possible, and the proceeds will be donated to a wide range of other UK charities. Since ShareGift was launched, over £17 million has been given to more than 2,000 charities.
The relevant share transfer form may be accessed at www.shareview.co.uk. For more information on ShareGift, visit www.ShareGift.org

How does your Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) work?
In common with a number of other major listed companies, we introduced a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) for the benefit of shareholders in May 1999.
