Dialight plc has retained its registrars, Equiniti, to assist in the management of the estate of any deceased shareholder. This is a two stage process: (1) notification; and (2) registration. Please do not send any letters of probate to Dialight plc as we will only be able to return these to you without any further processing.
You can email, call or write to Equiniti to inform them that a shareholder has passed away.
You can notify Equiniti by clicking on this link.
On the form, please ensure that you include the shareholder's full name and registered address, and state that the shares were held in Dialight plc. It will also help if you are able to provide details of any previous addresses at which the shareholder has lived, to help identify all shareholdings.
Alternatively, you may call Equiniti's bereavement helpline on: 0371 384 2793 (callers from outside the UK should dial: +44 121 415 0875).
If calling by Textel/Minicom, please call: 0371 384 2255. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm, excluding UK Bank Holidays.
When you call, please quote the Shareholder Reference; this can be found on the share certificate/statement or on any previous correspondence sent. Please also be prepared to provide details of any previous addresses at which the shareholder has lived; to help identify all shareholdings.
You can send Equiniti written notification of the shareholder's death to:
Please ensure that you include the shareholder's full name and registered address along with a statement that the shares are held in Dialight plc. It will also help to provide details of any previous addresses at which the shareholder has lived, so as to help identify all shareholdings. Equiniti's standard response time is to deal with your request within 5 business days from receipt.
Formal registration of the shareholder's death is then required to enable the appointed legal representative(s) to sell or transfer the shares as appropriate. The death can be registered by either using the Small Estates service or by providing the Grant of Representation.
If the appointed legal representative has also passed away, please let Equiniti know and our registrars will provide you with details of the Registration Process.
