Shareholder disclosure requirements


Under Chapter 5 of the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules ("DTR5") our shareholders, and holders of certain financial instruments relating to shares, are obligated to disclose to an issuer when their holding reaches or falls below a given threshold as a result of an acquisition or disposal or as a result of events changing the breakdown of voting rights (e.g. a new issue of shares by a company).

A summary of the main notification requirements of Shareholders under DTR5 is set out below.


Shareholders must notify Severn Trent of the percentage of voting rights held as shareholder or direct/indirect holder of financial instruments if, as a result of an acquisition or disposal of ordinary shares or financial instruments (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, subscription shares), the percentage of those voting rights:


In determining if a notification is required, Shareholders may assess their holding by reference to their holding at a point up to midnight on the day for which the determination is made. Calculations of the proportion of shares must use the total number of voting rights according to our most recent disclosure (a 'Total Voting Rights' announcement). Figures may be rounded down to the next whole number.

The notification must contain the information set out in DTR5.8.1 and must be effected by a Shareholder as soon as possible but not later than two trading days, the first trading day being the day on which the relevant person:


Investors in companies traded on a regulated market should inform the FCA by completing an electronic TR-1 Form and submitting this
to the FCA.  Additional detail on how to do this can be found on the FCA website. Severn Trent should also be informed at the same time’

Completed TR1 Forms should be sent to Severn Trent at


If Shareholders are in any doubt of their obligations under DTR5 or the actions they should take, they should consult their stockbroker, solicitor or financial adviser. This note is for information only and does not constitute legal advice and Severn Trent will not be responsible or liable for a Shareholder failing to comply with its obligations.
