Direct credit payments

The Star Entertainment Group (formerly known as Echo Entertainment Group) has streamlined the way in which dividends are paid to shareholders. Payments to shareholders with a registered address in Australia will only be made by direct credit into a nominated account with an Australian financial institution.

The payment of dividends by direct credit is a fast, convenient and secure way of receiving your dividend entitlements, providing benefits such as:

  • payments being electronically credited to your nominated bank account on the dividend payment date, without any mailing or handling delays; and

  • no misplaced cheques.

You will continue to receive a dividend statement through the mail or electronically in accordance with your instructions to the share registry regarding shareholder communications.

You can add or update your bank account details using the on-line share registry facility.

Alternatively, you can complete a Request for Direct Credit of Payments form and return it to the share registry.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan

The Star Entertainment Group has adopted a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) which will allow The Star Entertainment Group shareholders to reinvest all or part of any dividends payable on their shares to acquire additional The Star Entertainment Group shares.

The DRP has been activated and commenced operation after 30 June 2013. 

Shareholders may elect to participate in the DRP by completing and returning a DRP Application or Variation Form to the share registry so that it is received by the next business day after the record date for the relevant dividend.  DRP elections can also be updated online via the share registry’s website www.linkmarketservices.com.au or by logging into The Star Entertainment Group's on-line share registry facility.

If you wish to participate in the DRP, please read the Dividend Reinvestment Plan Summary and the Dividend Reinvestment Plan Rules (by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page) before returning a Dividend Reinvestment Plan Application or Variation form to the share registry or updating your DRP elections online.

Note: Participation in the DRP will override the payment of a cash dividend.
