Common questions around your return of investment have included how to sell your shares, what the dividend policy is and are we going to list on a stock market.

Selling your shares

Clear Books plc is an unlisted public company so it is currently difficult to sell your shares as there is no liquid market i.e. we are not listed on a stock exchange. However, it is our intention to create the market.

The investor module we have built is a platform to apply for shares, take payment, log in and download your share certificate.

We are investigating and hope to be able to extend the investor module to allow sellers to list the number of shares they want to sell and at what price and facilitate buyers to purchase those shares. At the very least we intend to implement a forum to connect shareholders.

Dividends versus capital growth

An investment in Clear Books plc is a long term capital growth play. In the short to medium term we have no plans to pay dividends. We intend to reinvest profits back into the business for growth.

Stock exchange listingĀ 

We have no current plans to list on a stock exchange such as the AIM or FTSE.

Future share offer

If an opportunity materialised to increase shareholder value through acquisition or growth then we may consider a further share offer in the future.
