Share Listing

Following a review of the Company’s listing arrangements, which included consultations with a wide range of large shareholders, the Board determined, as announced on 26 February 2013, that it was appropriate for DCC to seek admission to the FTSE UK Index Series. This entailed cancelling the listing of the Company’s shares on the Irish Stock Exchange (“ISE”) while maintaining the Premium Listing of DCC’s shares on the Official List of the United Kingdom Listing Authority (“UKLA Official List”). Consequently, with effect from the close of business on 3 May 2013, DCC’s listing on the Official List of the ISE was cancelled and the trading of DCC’s shares on the Main Securities Market of the ISE ceased. Since 6 May 2013, DCC’s shares are traded solely on the London Stock Exchange in sterling.

CREST

DCC is a member of the CREST share settlement system. Shareholders have the choice of holding their shares in electronic form or in the form of paper share certificates. Shareholders should consult their stockbroker if they wish to hold shares in electronic form.

Dividends

DCC normally pays dividends twice yearly, in July and in December. The final dividend in respect of the year ended 31 March 2013, which will be paid in July, will be paid in euro, although shareholders have the option to elect to receive their dividends in sterling.

This is the last dividend which DCC will declare in euro. As a result of the change in DCC’s listing arrangements as detailed above and the change in reporting currency to sterling with effect from 1 April 2013, all subsequent dividends (paid after July)will be declared in sterling. However, DCC will offer shareholders the option of receiving their dividends in euro.

Shareholders may also elect to receive dividend payments by electronic funds transfer directly into their bank accounts, rather than by cheque. Shareholders should contact the Company’s Registrar for details of these options.

The Company is obliged to deduct Dividend Withholding Tax (“DWT”) at the standard rate of income tax in Ireland (currently 20%) from dividends paid to its shareholders, unless a particular shareholder is entitled to an exemption from DWT and has completed and returned to the Company’s Registrar a declaration form claiming entitlement to the particular exemption. Exemption from DWT may be available to shareholders resident in another EU Member State or in a country with which the Republic of Ireland has a double taxation agreement in place and to non-individual shareholders resident in Ireland (for example companies, pension funds and charities).

An explanatory leaflet entitled “Dividend Withholding Tax – General Information Leaflet” has been published by the Irish Revenue Commissioners and can be obtained by contacting the Company’s Registrar. This leaflet can also be downloaded from the Irish Revenue Commissioners’ website at www.revenue.ie. Declaration forms for claiming an exemption are available from the Company’s Registrar.

Website

Through DCC’s website, www.dcc.ie, stakeholders and other interested parties can access information on DCC in an easy-to-follow and user-friendly format. As well as information on the Group’s activities, users can keep up to date on DCC’s financial results and share price performance through downloadable reports and interactive share price tools. The site also provides access to archived financial data, annual reports, stock exchange announcements and investor presentations.

Electronic Communications

Following the introduction of the Transparency Regulations 2007, and in order to adopt a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective approach, the Company provides information concerning the Company (such as the Annual Report, Interim Report and Notice of Annual General Meeting) to shareholders electronically via DCC’s website, www.dcc.ie, and only sends a printed copy to those shareholders who specifically request a copy. Shareholders who receive information electronically will continue to receive certain communications by post (such as share certificates, dividend cheques, dividend payment vouchers and tax vouchers). Shareholders who wish to alter the method by which they receive communications should contact the Company’s Registrar.
