London Stock Exchange Listing
Mitchells & Butlers plc shares have been traded on the London Stock Exchange since 15 April 2003.
Important information for US residents
The US Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") has approved rules to allow non-US companies that have previously de-registered and suspended their SEC reporting obligations to terminate permanently any ongoing reporting obligations. Mitchells & Butlers filed a Form 15-F with the SEC to permanently terminate its SEC reporting obligations, which became effective on 4 September 2007.
Prior to this, the Company filed a Form 15 with the SEC on 24 August 2006 to terminate the SEC registration of its ordinary shares. On filing the Form 15, the Company's SEC reporting obligations were suspended. Under the SEC rules at that time, to avoid re-commencement of SEC reporting requirements, the number of the Company's US resident shareholders had to remain below 300. Mitchells & Butlers plc's Articles of Association give the Company's directors the ability to limit the number of US residents holding Mitchells & Butlers plc ordinary shares. Mitchells & Butlers will now not use these powers to limit the number of US resident shareholders.
The Company no longer files an annual report on SEC Form 20-F or periodic reports on SEC Form 6-K with the SEC. All results and other public announcements together with the annual report and accounts are available on this website. The Company intends to maintain a high level of communication and best practice disclosure for all shareholders, including US based investors.
