PLEASE NOTE:

* To Request a Share / Stock Certificate, simply CALL your broker and ASK FOR ONE.

* A "traditional" DRIP & SPP (as described in the Primer) is different than a Synthetic DRIP offered by a Broker. You DRIP a company's stock, not a broker. Read more at FAQ Question #10.

* Regarding DRIP discounts offered by companies noted in the DRIP LIST, contact your broker if they pass along the discount when Synthetically DRIPping a particular company. The above notes regarding honouring DRIP discount is incomplete.
