  2. Share Acquisition Scheme (SAS) introduced in July 1998:

  • 1st Offer 2/7/1998 – subscription for a minimum of 49 ordinary shares ($502.25) and a maximum of 292 ordinary shares ($2993.00)

Dividend Reinvestment Plan

In April 2014, the Orica Limited Board amended the rules of the Orica Limited Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP). The amendments align Orica's DRP rules with the changes to the ASX Listing Rules (in particular Appendix 6A) which came into effect on 14 April 2014. The ASX timetable change introduced a new requirement that the last election date for a shareholder to participate in the DRP must be no earlier than the business day following the record date for the relevant dividend.

The amended rules will take effect from the 2014 interim dividend payable on 1 July 2014. The last date to elect to participate in the DRP for this dividend is 3 June 2014, and for the final dividend payable on 19 December 2014, the last date to elect to participate in the DRP will be 4 December 2014.
