In 2016 Old Mutual plc announced a new strategy – a redesign of the existing group that will separate its four underlying businesses in Africa, the UK and elsewhere into standalone businesses, in the stated belief that doing so will be in the best long-term interests of its shareholders and stakeholders.
The process is called a “managed separation”.
Shareholders need to approve certain aspects of the managed separation in order for it to proceed.
A “Shareholder Pack” containing a full explanation of the managed separation - as well as details of what will happen with current Old Mutual plc shares and instructions on how shareholders can vote - will be in the post soon.
You can vote by either returning your proxy or voting instruction forms.
Certain Old Mutual plc shareholders may also vote electronically.
