The Company offers a discount voucher to any first named, registered shareholder holding 500 or more ordinary shares as at 1 April each year. The voucher is usually posted to shareholders in mid-April and entitles the recipient or their immediate family to a 25% discount against most purchases at any one time of full price merchandise in Next Retail stores. The voucher has no monetary purchase limit and expires on 31 October of the same year.
Shareholders holding shares in nominee or PEP/ISA accounts are also eligible, but must request the voucher through their nominee or PEP/ISA account manager. The account manager will be required to confirm the shareholder's name and address and the number of shares held as at 1 April. This information should be sent in writing or emailed to The Company Secretary's Department.
