Dividend Reinvestment Plan Price Determined

The share price used to calculate entitlements under the Fletcher Building Limited Dividend Reinvestment Plan has been set at NZ$9.5339.

This is the individual daily volume weighted average sale prices of all price-setting trades of Fletcher Building shares sold on the NZSX on each of the five business days from and including the NZX ex-dividend date of 25 September 2013 in terms of the Dividend Reinvestment Plan Offer Document. 

Shareholders who have elected to participate in the Dividend Reinvestment Plan reinvest their dividends to receive additional shares, rather than cash.

The new shares will be allocated on the dividend date, 16 October 2013.  The number of Fletcher Building shares to which participants are entitled is the total of the net dividend remittance which would otherwise have been payable to participants, divided by 9.5339.

The dividend has imputation credits attached at a 28 percent tax rate.

For all NZ resident shareholders who do not hold an exemption certificate, resident withholding tax has been deducted at 5% from the gross dividend.

Non-New Zealand shareholders benefit from the New Zealand supplementary dividends attached to the imputation credits, as these have the effect of reducing or removing the cost of New Zealand non-resident withholding tax.

For Australian resident shareholders, no franking credits are available in respect of this dividend. The dividend remittance is subject to the 15 percent New Zealand non-resident withholding tax but this will be fully or partly offset by the payment of the supplementary dividend.  Australian residents are paid in Australian dollars which have been converted using an exchange rate of NZ$1.00 = A$0.87719.

An illustration of the calculation of the net dividend remittance is available on the Company's website (
