Please be aware that companies, typically from overseas, sometimes make unsolicited contact with shareholders offering to buy their shares or to sell shares on their behalf at prices which can be significantly higher than the market price of the share.
Some shareholders in Irish Stock Exchange and London Stock Exchange listed companies have recently experienced unsolicited and unauthorised approaches. Always remember:
To check if the company that contacts you is appropriately authorised to operate as an investment firm in Ireland, check with the Central Bank of Ireland on their website – www.centralbank.ie – or call +353 (0)1 224 4000. In the UK, check with the FSA on their website – www.fsa.gov.uk – or call +44 (0)845 606 1234.
