Important – Before you enroll
As was communicated earlier this year, the Global Share Plan program will not be renewed once the 10-year program expires. This means that the Global Share Plan is coming to an end on 31 December 2020. It is important to note that if you enroll now, you can only participate in the Global Share Plan for 1 year and 1 quarter. This is also the reason why September will be the last opportunity to enroll into the plan. After September, the enrollment form will not be available anymore.
Any shares you buy will remain in-actionable for one year after purchase. This means that if you buy shares now, you cannot sell or transfer them until October 2020. Moreover, if you remain GSP participant until the end of December 2020, you will only be able to either sell or transfer the shares that have been deducted in December 2020 by the end of 2021. Until then, they will be visible on your own Global Shares account, which will be created for you after enrollment.
