If your stock is held by a broker, please contact your broker directly.

What is the difference between a registered stockholder and beneficial stockholder?

If your DowDuPont shares are held in your name directly through DowDuPont’s transfer agent, Computershare, then you are a registered stockholder.

If your DowDuPont shares are held by a broker, dealer, bank, other nominee or custodian fund, then you are a beneficial stockholder. This is also commonly known as a “street” account or being a “street” holder.

Will DowDuPont have a dividend reinvestment or direct stock purchase plan?

Registered stockholders may reinvest cash dividends in additional DowDuPont shares through the Computershare CIP, a direct stock purchase and dividend reinvestment plan offered and administered by Computershare. Persons who are not registered holders may also purchase shares through the Computershare CIP. Details about the Computershare CIP, including any fees and how to enroll, are available via Computershare’s website.

What is a medallion signature guarantee?

A medallion guarantee is a type of signature guarantee used within the securities industry which verifies the authority and authenticity of a signature. A medallion signature guarantee is different from a notary. Signatures on written instructions, forms or stock certificates authorizing stock transactions must be reviewed by a firm that is a member of a qualified medallion guarantee program and have a medallion signature guarantee stamp affixed. Firms participating in the medallion stamp program include commercial banks, savings banks, savings and loan institutions, U.S. stockbrokers and security dealers, or credit unions. If you require a medallion signature guarantee, contact a bank, brokerage house or other financial institution with which you do business. Please note that if you are not the registered owner, you will be required to present documentation to the guarantor proving your authorization to execute the transfer.

What is Direct Registration or Book-Entry?

DowDuPont has decided that all shares of stock will be issued as book-entry shares and no certificates will be issued representing DowDuPont common stock. Book-entry registration is an easy and safe alternative to paper certificates. Also referred to as Direct Registration or DRS, book-entry allows DowDuPont’s transfer agent, Computershare, to maintain your shares on the books of the company electronically. Book-entry shares have the same rights and privileges as certificated shares, along with these benefits:

  • Convenient and secure
  • Reduces risk, time and cost associated with storing paper certificates and replacing lost or stolen certificates
  • Allows for electronic transactions between the transfer agent and your broker or dealer
  • Reduces administrative costs to DowDuPont and its stockholders

Book-entry has been encouraged by both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the New York Stock Exchange.

Do I have to return my Dow / DuPont stock certificates?

Yes. The shares of common stock represented by your Dow or DuPont stock certificate will no longer be traded on any stock exchange and now only represents the right to receive DowDuPont common stock (and, in the case of former DuPont stockholders, cash in lieu of any fractional DowDuPont shares) based on the applicable exchange ratio.

What will happen if I do not return my stock certificates?

Until you return your stock certificates for exchange, you will not receive your DowDuPont stock. Any future DowDuPont dividends will accrue on the shares represented by those certificates, but will not be paid to you until your Dow or DuPont shares are exchanged for DowDuPont shares. Accrued dividends and any cash in lieu of fractional shares will be paid without interest upon the exchange of shares.

What will happen to my shares that are held in dividend reinvestment plans?

All shares held in book-entry form or in a dividend reinvestment plan will be exchanged automatically and you will receive a statement indicating your DowDuPont share ownership.

What if some of my shares are held with a broker or custodian bank or agent?

If your shares are held in a brokerage account or with a custodian, no action is required from you. Your broker or bank will handle the exchange of your shares.

When should I expect the exchange of my shares to be completed?

Stockholders who held their Dow / DuPont shares electronically, should expect to receive a statement indicating their DowDuPont share ownership and a check for any cash in lieu of fractional DowDuPont shares (former DuPont holders only) approximately 10 business days following the closing of the DowDuPont merger.

Escheatment Q&A

What is "escheatment" and when does it take place?

Escheatment is the process by which abandoned or unclaimed property is transferred to a state, making the state the legal owner of the property. A stock account can be deemed abandoned by inactivity due to an incorrect mailing address, uncashed dividend checks, or no direct contact by the stockholder for a specified period of time. Each state has its own escheatment laws, with inactivity or dormancy periods ranging from three to five years. The laws apply to all inactive stock accounts – whether owned by U.S. or foreign stockholders, including those enrolled in dividend reinvestment plans or direct deposit of dividend payments or holding paper stock certificates. Before any property is transferred to a state, all companies are required to perform a due diligence search for owners of property at risk of escheatment.

How can I prevent my stock account from being escheated to the state?

You must keep your stock account active. Do this by: keeping your address current and correct, voting your proxy, cashing or depositing all dividend checks, and responding to any due diligence mailings from our transfer agent.

Will enrollment in the Computershare CIP keep my account stock account active?

Several states confirmed that dividend reinvestment may not constitute "direct" contact by a stockholder. So even if there is a good address on the account, if there has been no other account activity (for example, sale or purchase of shares, voting a proxy, or an address change or response to a due diligence mailing) during the dormancy period governed by the state, the stock account may be considered to be inactive or dormant by the state. As such, the property is then escheated to the state according to its specific laws.

How can I find out if I have any escheated property? How can I recover any escheated property?

Go to www.unclaimed.org to start your search. International stockholders should search in the State of Delaware. To make a claim, follow the instructions provided by each state.
