HomeServe plc was previously called South Staffordshire Group plc. The original South Staffordshire shares were split on a 10 for 1 basis in July 1999.
On 6 April 2004 the Company demerged its water supply business and changed its name to HomeServe plc. Shareholders received 1 share in the newly listed water supply business, which was known as South Staffordshire plc and 5 shares in HomeServe plc for every 5 shares that they held. HomeServe plc shares were then immediately consolidated on a 4 for 5 basis so in effect, all shareholders received 1 share in South Staffordshire plc and 4 shares in HomeServe plc for every 5 shares held.
South Staffordshire plc was subsequently taken over and delisted.
On 30 July 2010, shareholders of HomeServe plc approved a split of the Company's shares which was effective on 2 August 2010. This means that each HomeServe share was split on a 5 for 1 basis and the share price was reduced accordingly; in effect it was divided by 5. If you held shares, the number you held increased by a multiple of 5 although (subject to market movement) this change has had no impact on the value of your holding.
The interim dividend is usually paid in January and the final dividend is usually paid in August. Further details on dividend history are available in the dividend section of the website.
Not at present. HomeServe does not currently offer a scrip dividend alternative, so all dividends must be taken in cash.
