Q: IBM investor services program : How does a stockholder reinvest dividends?
To participate in the IBM Dividend Reinvestment option, you must be a stockholder of record. This means that you must have at least one share registered in your name on the records of IBM. Stock held in "street" or "nominee name" with a broker, bank or other financial entity, is not eligible to participate in the IBM Dividend Reinvestment option. If you are not yet a registered owner and you wish to enroll in the IBM Dividend Reinvestment Plan, please contact your broker for your initial purchase, have them issue a stock certificate registered in your name and contact Computershare for an enrollment form (see contact information). An alternative would be to buy shares directly through the IBM Investor Services Program (see Investor Services Program, Direct Stock Purchase Plan).
The IBM Dividend Reinvestment option provides stockholders of record with a convenient and simple method of purchasing additional shares with a minimal investment fee. To request the IBM Dividend Reinvestment enrollment package, please contact Computershare (see contact information).
