It depends on the type of the dividend declared. If it’s a purely cash dividend, you do not have an option to take up shares instead. However, if a cash dividend with a scrip option is declared, you can opt to receive more shares in the company. If you are paid your dividend in cash, you can ask your broker to reinvest the proceeds into Meikles shares on your behalf.
Yes, this is possible. You need to contact our registrars in the jurisdiction where you bought the Meikles shares and they will assist you.

A dividend is a taxable sum of money declared by a company’s board of directors and given to its shareholders out of the company’s current or retained earnings. Dividends are usually given as cash (cash dividend), but they can also take the form of stock (scrip dividend) or other property. There is no guarantee that a company will make dividend payments in any given year or years.
You should contact our Registrars, who will check the payment details and, if appropriate, issue a replacement cheque. To avoid this problem in future you may wish to consider having your dividends paid electronically into your bank or building society account. To do so, you need to provide our registrars with your banking details and instruct them to this effect.
