Electronic communication

As a shareholder of Pearson plc, you may choose to receive certain communications from the company in electronic format instead of by post. Electronic communications are not only a secure and efficient method for shareholder communications, they also allow us to operate in a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective way.

If you would like to receive future company communications electronically you can arrange this by logging on to the Shareview website selecting “Find out more and register” and filling in your details. You will then be registered automatically to receive an e-mail notification whenever the company mails information to shareholders.

If you are already registered with Shareview but have not yet registered for electronic communications, please log on to Shareview using your existing User ID and Password and ensure that your mailing preference is shown as "e-mail". If it is not, you can update your preference by clicking on "Change preferences” once you are logged in. Once you have registered, you will need to ensure that you inform Equiniti of any changes of e-mail address. Please note that e-mail addresses registered for electronic communications purposes are kept confidential and will not be made publicly available or used by the company for any purpose other than communicating with you as a shareholder. There is no charge for this service.

Although the company actively encourages its shareholders to make use of this facility, please note that you may request a hard copy document at any time either by clicking on the report or by telephoning Equiniti on 0871 384 2043.

How it works

Whenever the company has a shareholder mailing, you will receive an e-mail with a link to the website where electronic copies of the document can be viewed or downloaded. The documents themselves will not be sent with the e-mail. You will no longer receive a copy of that document by post.

You should be aware that the company's legal obligations to you in respect of the delivery of information will be satisfied when the Registrar on behalf of the company transmits an e-mail to you at the address you have provided, whether or not it is delivered. Nevertheless, where the Registrar is aware of any failure in delivery of an electronic message, a notification will be posted to your last known address informing you that the attempt to communicate with you electronically has failed and advising you of the website address where the document can be found.


You should note that e-mail communications are not necessarily secure and there is always a risk that e-mail messages may be lost, intercepted or tampered with. In agreeing that the company and its Registrar may communicate with you electronically, you agree that neither the company nor the Registrar will be under any liability for any losses that may arise as a result of any such loss, interception or tampering or other factors beyond their control. You should check documents and attachments for viruses and defects before opening and using them. The liability of the company and its Registrar in this respect is limited to re-delivering the affected documents.

If you have any questions about Shareview, please contact Equiniti on +44 (0)371 384 2233.

Share dealing service

A postal dealing service is available through Equiniti. Please telephone 0371 384 2248 for details or log on to the Share View website to download a form.

Pearson does not contact its shareholders directly to provide recommendation advice and neither does it appoint third parties to do so. As required by law, our shareholder register is available for public inspection but we cannot control the use of information obtained by persons inspecting the register. Please treat any approaches purporting to originate from Pearson with caution.
