These direct deposits may be credited to your account at any financial institution.

If you receive dividends through more than one shareholder account, please complete a form for each one.

What are the differences between Meredith's common stock and class B common stock?

  • Meredith's common stock -- ticker symbol MDP -- is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, but its class B common stock is not registered with an exchange.
  • Both common and class B shares pay the same dividends.
  • Class B shareholders are entitled to ten votes per share; common shareholders receive one vote per share.
  • Common stock may be freely traded, while class B stock only retains its class B status if transferred to a "permitted transferee." A permitted transferee could be the spouse of the holder; a lineal descendant of the holder's grandparent or spouse of any such lineal descendant; trustee of a trust, charitable organization, corporation or partnership within the definition of a permitted transferee; or the beneficial owner of the certificate who has been the beneficial owner since December 16, 1986. The company's Restated Articles of Incorporation contain a complete definition. To be transferred otherwise, class B stock first must be converted, share for share, to common stock through the company's transfer agent, EQ Shareholder Services.

What should I do if I don't receive or happen to misplace a dividend check, direct dividend deposit confirmation, dividend reinvestment plan statement, or 1099 form?

Contact either EQ Shareholder Services by phone at 1-800-4689716 or to report non-receipt or loss.
