What are ICG Units?

As and from 7 June 2014 an ICG unit consists of one Ordinary share and no Redeemable shares. The shares comprising a unit are not separable for sale / transfer purposes.

The number of Redeemable Shares comprised in an ICG Unit at any particular time will be displayed on the Irish Continental Group plc website. The redemption of redeemable shares is solely at the discretion of the directors.

The Board of Directors, at its discretion, may, from time to time, redeem some or all of the Redeemable Shares at a premium over their nominal value. If any such redemption takes place it is unlikely that a dividend would also be paid in the same period, and vice versa.

Shareholders are offered the option of having any redemptions paid in Euro or in Pounds Sterling and made by way of cheque payment or electronic transfer. Shareholders should contact the Company's Registrars for further information.

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 shareholder is entitled to an exemption from DWT and has returned a declaration form to the Company's Registrars claiming such entitlement.
