Transfer of Shares

Unless the articles of association specify otherwise, a share owner may transfer some or all of his or her shares to another person in any manner which is permitted by the Statutes and is approved by the board. Transfers of uncertificated shares must be carried out using the relevant system. The instrument of transfer for certificated shares must be signed by or on behalf of the transferor and except in the case of a fully paid share, by or on behalf of the transferee and must be delivered to the registered office or any other place the directors decide.

The directors may refuse to register a transfer:

 

   

if it is of shares which are not fully paid;

 

   

if it is of shares on which WPP has a lien;

 

   

if it is not stamped and duly presented for registration, together with the share certificate and evidence of title as the board reasonably requires;

 

   

if it is with respect to more than one class of shares;

 

   

if it is in favor of more than four persons jointly; or

 

   

in certain circumstances, if the holder has failed to provide the required particulars to the investigating power referred to under “Disclosure of interests in shares” below.

WPP may not refuse to register transfers of WPP ordinary shares if this refusal would prevent dealings in the shares which have been admitted to official listing by the UK Listing Authority from taking place on an open and proper basis. If the board refuses to register a transfer of a share, it shall, as soon as practicable and in any event within two months after the date on which the instrument of transfer was lodged or the Operator-instruction was received, send to the transferee notice of the refusal. The board shall provide the transferee with such further information about the reasons for the refusal as the transferee may reasonably request. The registration of transfers may be suspended at any time and for any period as the directors may determine. The register of share owners may not be closed for more than 30 days in any year.
