We have recently become aware that our shareholders receive unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are usually from overseas based 'brokers' who target UK shareholders, offering to buy Bloomsbury Publishing Plc shares off them at an attractive price, or offering to sell them typically what turns out to be worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments. These operations are commonly known as 'boiler room' scams.
Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports.
If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you will not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
Details of any share dealing facilities that Bloomsbury endorses will be included in Bloomsbury’s mailings. More detailed information on this or similar activity can be found on the FCA website at www.fca.org.uk, https://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/protect-yourself-scams and www.fca.org.uk/scamsmart.
