Santos Warrants are not issued by Santos Ltd.
The disclosure document (also called an offering circular or a Product Disclosure Statement) contains the terms of issue of the warrant series and information relevant to the credit worthiness of the issuer.
You can obtain disclosure documents from the warrant issuer, your broker, or the ASX website.
Ownership of the shares is recorded electronically and evidenced by a statement, rather than a certificate. Share certificates are no longer recognised as evidence of ownership; instead, each shareholder receives a holding statement which details all movements on their shareholding, including purchases, sales, and corporate actions.
An Issuer Sponsored holding is maintained by Computershare, which maintains all details relating to the holding. All Santos shares quoted on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) are required to be uncertificated. Issuer sponsorship is the means by which shareholders must hold their shares in uncertificated form if they are not sponsored by a participant in CHESS, such as a sharebroker. Your Issuer Sponsored holdings can be identified by an ‘I’ at the start of your Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) which is printed on your holding statement. When your shares are Issuer Sponsored, you are free to trade them through any broker. You give your nominated broker permission to access your holding when you buy or sell shares.
If your shares are Broker Sponsored, you will have a Holder Identification Number (HIN) allocated to you that is prefixed with an ‘X’. All on-market transactions in Santos securities are advised electronically to the Santos Share Registry through CHESS (Clearing House Electronic Subregister System). When your shares are Broker Sponsored, you are only able to sell them through that broker. If you wish to use a different broker you will need to arrange to have the holding transferred.
