Georgeson has been engaged by the National Bank of Canada (NBC) to administer an Asset Reunification™ program to search and locate holders of lost assets and reunite NBC shareholders with their unclaimed cash and/or share entitlements.
What does this mean? Why did I receive this website information?
The program website has been provided by NBC to help ensure that lost shareholders of NBC, including lost former shareholders of companies acquired by NBC, such as Unity Bank of Canada, Mercantile Bank, and First Marathon, receive their rightful cash and NBC share entitlement.
There are two different types of shareholders to whom this program applies:
Lost shareholders of NBC
Anyone who owns common and/or preferred shares of NBC to whom the company has been unable to correspond with to deliver company meeting materials or dividend payments, resulting from an address change or some other change in circumstances is considered a lost shareholder.
Former Lost Predecessor Shareholders
Any shareholder of Unity Bank, Mercantile Bank, or First Marathon who has not received their NBC shares following the company’s acquisition by NBC is considered a former shareholder. These former shareholders are “lost” shareholders and have yet to exchange their predecessor company share certificates for their BCE share and/or cash entitlement.
NBC's investor relations site provides additional details regarding these transactions.
What does this mean?
If you were a shareholder of one of the above listed companies at the time that NBC acquired the company, you should have exchanged your acquired company shares for the NBC shares and/or cash payment to which you were entitled to as a result of the acquisition.
How do I claim my entitlement?
To claim your entitlement, you may choose one of the following options:
- Visit the program website provided on the Important Notice you received from Georgeson, and log on using the passcode provided.
