It has come to our attention that recently a number of smaller shareholders have received unsolicited telephone calls concerning their investments in Dominos Pizza Group plc. Such calls have related to offers to potentially purchase shares for considerably more than the current market price, further details of which would be disclosed once the shareholder concerned signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Shareholders should be wary of any unsolicited advice. Following a recent increase in the prevalence of so-called "boiler room" scams, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Institute of Chartered Secretaries (ICSA) have produced a leaflet warning investors about unsolicited communications concerning investment matters, which is available in full by clicking on the link below. Please note the following recommendations in particular if you receive any unsolicited investment advice:
- Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation contacting you.
- Check that they are properly authorised by the FCA before getting involved by visiting. www.fca.org.uk/register. Report the matter to the FCA Consumer Helpline by calling 0800 111 6768 if there are no contact details on the FCA Register or you are told they are out of date.
- Search the FCA’s list of unauthorised firms and individuals to avoid doing business with.
- If the calls persist, hang up.
If you have any queries, please contact Adrian Bushnell, Company Secretary, on 01908 580 000
