Stockland stapled securities are traded on the Australian Securities Exchange.

Stockland pays distributions on a half-yearly basis, following our half-year and full year results announcements at or around the end of February and August.
As Stockland's financial year end is 30 June, it issues the Annual Tax Statement in August each year. The Annual Tax Statement provides a summary of the distribution and dividends paid during the year and includes information required to complete your annual tax return. You can also access your Annual Tax Statement online through your Computershare securityholder account.
A guide to your Annual Tax Statement can be found on our website in Taxation.
You can find historical information regarding Stockland in the Shareholder Information section of this website. This includes historical distribution and dividend information, as well as information on past scrip for scrip takeovers, capital reallocations and security stapling.
Stockland offers a Distribution and Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“DRP”) for securityholders who wish to reinvest part or all of their Distribution and Dividend receipts.
The DRP was suspended for the half year distribution for the six months ended 31 December 2017. If you have not received your cash distribution because you had elected to participate in the DRP for this distribution period, please contact Computershare to provide your bank details so payment of your cash distribution can be made.
Further information can be found on the Securityholder Information webpage.
A Holder Identification Number, or HIN, is a number issued to you after you enter an agreement with a stockbroker to buy securities. You do not need to notify Stockland or our share registry of your HIN. You should keep your HIN secure and confidential, as it is quoted in all interactions between your broker and the share registry.
A Securityholder Reference Number, or SRN, is a number issued to you by share registry on behalf of Stockland if you do not have a broker agreement. You should keep your SRN secure and confidential. Your SRN should be quoted in all interactions you have with the share registry. If you misplace your SRN, contact Computershare as soon as possible.
