Does Ardent Leisure have a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP)?
Yes. The DRP allows securityholders to have their dividends reinvested in additional securities in Ardent Leisure, rather than having their dividends paid to them.

The Company may at the Board’s discretion suspend or activate the DRP by general announcement to the ASX.
For further information on the DRP, a copy of the current DRP Booklet is available on the Corporate Governance page of this website. If you wish to participate, please contact the Registry on 1300 720 560.
