CSR fails to respond to simple shareholder requests - we have on several occasions asked Andree Taylor of Investor Relations, why CSR Limited has not accounted for unclaimed dividends and also for unclaimed amounts arising from a return of capital to shareholders on 21 July 2005 - Taylor has not responded to our questions - shareholders should be asking this company (investorrelations@csr.com.au) why it has failed to provide the appropriate authority with details of unclaimed monies18/04/2008
on 4 August 2005, the company made a return of capital to all shareholders registered on 21 July 2005 (the record date) - the capital return was $0.20 per share - this payment was a capital payment (it was not classed as a dividend for any purpose and had no dividend component) - but as a result of the return of capital, shareholders must adjust the cost base and reduced cost base of their CSR shares04/08/2005
we understand that on or about this date the company made a capital return of 20 cents per share14/07/2005
in April 2003 CSR shareholders received one Rinker share for every CSR share they held - CSR advised the Australian Tax Office that Rinker represented 75% of the market value of the group as a whole just after the demerger - according to the ATO, shareholders who received Rinker shares should use this percentage to apportion the sum of the cost bases of their post-CGT CSR shares between these shares and the Rinker shares they received in relation to those post-CGT CSR shares30/04/2003
we understand that on or about this date the company demerged Rinker Group Limited by way of a 1 for 1 distribution - the Demerged Entity represented 75% of the market value of the group as a whole immediately after the demerger15/04/2003
