Strate is South Africa’s Central Securities Depository for equities, bonds and money markets. Strate provides electronic settlement of securities in South Africa. In order to hold shares electronically, shareholders must dematerialise their shares.
Dematerialisation refers to the process whereby paper share certificates are replaced with electronic records of ownership. Holding shares electronically can help to prevent share fraud, theft and loss of share certificates. Also, should you wish to sell your shares, you will be unable to do so unless you hold them in dematerialised form.
Shareholders wishing to dematerialise their shares must do so through a Central Securities Depository Participant (CSDP). CSDPs are the only market players who can liaise directly with Strate.
Our transfer secretary (registrar), Link Market Services, is also a CSDP operating under the name Link Investor Services.
Shareholders who are not resident in South Africa experiencing difficulties cashing rand dividend cheques may like to consider dematerialising their shares with Link Investor Services (or another CSDP) as they are able to pay dividends electronically into foreign bank accounts.
If you have any queries on dematerialisation, please contact CSDP Link Investor Services using the contact details for Link Market Services above.
Strate Charity Shares
For shareholders wishing to dispose of small holdings of shares, the sale of which would be uneconomic, there is the option to donate the shares to charity.
In South Africa, Strate Charity Shares allow shareholders to donate unwanted shares free of charge. These shares are then aggregated, sold and the proceeds distributed to various charities.
Shareholders wishing to donate shares held on the South African branch register should complete the donation form and return to Strate Charity Shares as directed.
For further information relating to the donation of Mondi plc shares held on the South African branch register, please contact Strate:

Mondi is unable to advise shareholders on taxation. Your tax obligations will vary depending on your jurisdiction and financial circumstances. With regard to your Mondi shareholding, we recommend all shareholders maintain records of dividend payments, share purchases and sales. A dividend confirmation will be sent with all dividend payments. For further assistance, please speak to an independent professional tax or financial adviser.
Shareholders can elect to access certain shareholder documents, for example the integrated report, electronically via Mondi’s website rather than receiving them by post. Electing to access documents in this way will mean you will receive an email alerting you each time Mondi circulates a new shareholder document or communication. This will contain a link that will direct you to the appropriate page on Mondi’s website where you can view the documents at your own convenience.
This has a number of benefits including faster notification of information, helping to reduce company costs and being more environmentally friendly.
Mondi plc shareholders on the South African branch register can elect to receive documents electronically by contacting Link Market Services on +27 (0)11 713 0800 or by emailing [email protected].
