Dividend information

Dividends on the ordinary shares are normally paid twice a year: an interim dividend in April and a final dividend in October. The approximate split between the two payments is 40:60.

You can choose whether to take your dividends in cash or to reinvest them in ordinary shares under the company's dividend reinvestment plan ("DRIP").

Dividend reinvestment

Citibank operates an International Direct Investment Plan for Diageo's ADR programme. The International Direct Plan is a direct share purchase and dividend reinvestment plan for ADR investors who reside in the US. The plan allows existing shareholders the convenience of reinvesting all or a portion of their cash dividends with reduced transaction costs.

The International Direct Investment Plan is sponsored and administered by Diageo's depositary bank, Citibank. Diageo has consented to the composition of the plan, but does not, and should not be deemed to sponsor or administer the International Direct Investment Plan.

You can link from here to Citibank's ADR website for further information relating to the International Direct Investment Plan (www.citi.com/dr then Investors/Investment Plan & Services/International Direct Investment Plan) or call Citibank Shareholder Services at 1-866-253-0933.
