We expect to declare distributions semi-annually (with our half-year results and the preliminary full-year results). We pay them twice yearly, usually in September/October and May/June. A distribution is paid for each share, so the amount you receive depends on the number of shares you own. 

To receive the distribution, your name must be on the share register on the relevant distribution record date. If you sell your shares before the ex-distribution date or purchase them after it, you will not be entitled to that distribution.

We declare our distribution in US dollars. Glencore shareholders on the Jersey register may elect to receive distribution payments in euros, Swiss francs, US dollars or pounds sterling. Sterling distributions can be paid by direct credit. 

Shareholders who formerly held shares through the Computershare Hong Kong nominee will receive distribution payments in US dollars unless they make an election to receive payments in Swiss francs, sterling or euros, or subscribe to the global payment service to elect to receive payments in the currency of their choosing (including Hong Kong dollars), by the prescribed date. Shareholders on the Johannesburg branch register will receive distributions in South African rand. Elections will remain in place until revoked by the shareholder.

If you have lost a historic distribution cheque contact our registrars as soon as possible. They will arrange for the cheque to be stopped and issue a replacement. See How do I contact your registrars? 

If you require a replacement distribution tax voucher, inform our registrars who will arrange for a duplicate to be sent to you. There is a fee for this service. See How do I contact your registrars? above.

Distribution payments are paid on the date listed in the Distribution Information page to all shareholders that appear on the register. This includes individual investors holding shares in their own name and nominee holders who hold on behalf of individual investors (for example a bank). These custodians are intermediaries in the process and this adds processing time at each level, effectively delaying payment to the underlying owner of the shares (you). 

Except for direct shareholders who appear on the register, neither Glencore nor Computershare have any visibility or information as to how your Glencore shares are held and why you might not have yet received your distribution payment. 

You should contact your broker or bank for further information and ask them to contact Computershare if required. 

We encourage you to sign up to get all documentation by email. As soon as we release any shareholder communication, we email registered shareholders. Register your details with Computershare to subscribe to electronic communications.

We report all our financial statements in US dollars (USD or $).

Our ordinary shares are listed on the London Stock Exchange’s main market (the London Stock Exchange or LSE), with a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

To encourage the use of electronic communications, in line with the practice of many leading companies, we do not print and distribute a half-year report. The half year results are available to download here

UK legislation enables all companies to communicate with their shareholders electronically, which is faster and more cost-effective.
