The Directors of Alumina have determined that you are not permitted to participate in the Plan. This is due to legal requirements that make it unlawful to offer shares to residents of some countries without first issuing a disclosure document or registration statement or satisfying other prerequisites.
U.S. persons or persons holding Alumina shares for the account or benefit of U.S. persons
The Directors of Alumina have determined that:
- if you are a 'U.S. person', you are not permitted to participate in the Plan; and
- if you hold Alumina shares for the account or benefit of a 'U.S. person', you are not permitted to participate in the Plan to the extent of that shareholding,
in each case as 'U.S' person is defined in clause 16(b) of the Terms and Conditions of the Plan.
This is due to U.S. regulatory requirements.
If you are not a 'U.S. person' and you hold Alumina shares for the account or benefit of at least one person who is not a 'U.S. person', you may participate in the Plan. However, you may only participate to the extent that you hold shares for the account or benefit of persons who are not 'U.S. persons'.

In March 2008, the directors of Alumina Limited (formerly WMC Limited) established a new Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“New DRP”) replacing the existing Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“Existing Plan”). The Existing Plan was suspended in 1998 and any residual cash balances were distributed to participating shareholders at that time. The Existing Plan was no longer consistent with current market practice and did not meet the present needs of the company and was terminated.
In accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the Alumina Limited Dividend Reinvestment Plan, the directors decided in February 2010 to suspend the DRP until further notice. In April 2015 the directors approved the recommencement of the DRP.
Please note: Notification will be placed on this website when there is any change to the DRP. As the DRP is currently suspended, the below information on the DRP Rules and DRP Summary is for information only.

2015 Interim Dividend - DRP
The Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“DRP”) for the 2015 interim dividend was to be 50% underwritten to ensure the Company maintained an appropriate capital structure. Participation in the DRP represented 49.8% of issued shares. The strong support for the DRP from existing shareholders meant that the underwriting arrangement was not required and was cancelled. There was no cost to the Company for entering into or cancelling the DRP underwrite.
