You are ‘broker sponsored’ after you have entered into an agreement with a stockbroker and have been allocated a Holder Identification Number (HIN) beginning with an “X”. If your shares are held under a broker sponsored agreement you need to notify the broker of any change of name or address, not the company or the registrar. Holding statements will be issued to you by the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
Shareholders who do not have a broker agreement are automatically sponsored by the company and hold their shares in a dematerialised form. This is known as having an ‘Issuer Sponsored’ holding. Issuer Sponsored holdings are given a unique Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) starting with an “I” that relates to your specific holding in Collins Foods. Holding statements will be issued to you by Computershare Investor Services on behalf of Collins Food Limited.
The Easy Update portal enables you to select your communication preferences, update your dividend payment instruction and provide your TFN. To access this service, you will need to have your SRN or HIN available.
Alternatively you can phone 1300 458 215 within Australia or +61 3 9415 4245 if outside Australia.
