Share Trading

Share TradingDuring the de-regulation of milk supply and break up of the Milk Marketing Board in 1993, NMR plc was created with 27,000 shareholders who were all active dairy farmers. Since then NMR has made significant progress to gain liquidity in its shares and to develop a proper trading environment. In 2003 our offer to re-purchase up to 250 shares at 30p per share was taken up by over 600 shareholders.

With effect from 28 December 2006 our shares have been traded on ISDX. Designed specifically for small and mid-cap entrepreneurial companies, the ISDX Growth Market provides access to a wide range of dynamic companies from many different sectors.  Companies on ISDX Growth Market are not "listed" on the UKLA's Official List and are therefore considered by HMRC to be "unquoted" for most UK tax purposes.  ISDX Growth Market shares can be included in tax advantaged savings structures, namely ISAs and Self Invested Pension Plans.  Investors have access to the various tax benefits available to shareholders in private trading companies such as business property relief for inheritance tax. The ISDX market enjoys Growth Market Exemption of stamp duty and stamp duty reserve tax on transfers of securities. The exemption is pursuant to the Finance Bill 2014 and will apply to transactions on the ISDX Growth Market made on or after Monday 28 April 2014.

In 2010 NMR completed a successful share consolidation process by which share holdings below 320 were paid out at 28p which was the prevailing market price at the time. As a result NMR now has less than 7,000 shareholders and a liquid market in our shares.

Existing shareholders can benefit from the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) which allows you to use dividend payments to buy new NMR shares. This is a quick and convenient way to buy additional shares at a favourable commission rate and helps demand for the shares. Applying to join the DRIP is very easy and an application form can be found under the ‘Additional Information' tab on this web page or by visiting

If you want to buy shares in NMR all you will need to do to trade is to call your stockbroker.

Another option is to donate unwanted shares to ShareGift, the share donation charity (registered charity 1052686). ShareGift was set up in 1996 to provide a charitable solution for small holdings of shares that are uneconomic to sell. Shareholders in this position can transfer unwanted shares to ShareGift and obtain tax relief as a result. The charity then consolidates the shares into meaningful quantities, sells them when there are enough and uses the proceeds for charitable donations. Millions of pounds have already been distributed to over 1,000 different charities as a result.

If you wish to use this free service, please download a ShareGift Transfer Form from You simply need to complete the number of shares you are donating, add your name and address, sign the form where indicated and return it, with your share certificate(s), to: Equiniti, Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex, BN99 6DA

In the event that you cannot locate your share certificate, shareholdings of less than £100 in value can still be transferred to ShareGift without incurring a lost certificate or administration fee. For transfers of shares of over £100 in value that are not accompanied with a share certificate, an application for a formal indemnity will need to be made to Equiniti. Such transfers will also incur a £10 administration fee.
