* The Group restructuring in 2008 saw the separation of the Group’s non-luxury goods interests, primarily its shareholding in British American Tobacco plc, from its luxury goods interests. The de-twinning of the bearer shares and participation certificates was an integral part of the separation process, with the participation certificates becoming shares in Reinet Investments S.C.A., a separate public company listed on the Luxembourg stock exchange. Since October 2008, Richemont has been a focused luxury goods group.

The splits and restructuring noted above equally impacted the unlisted ‘B’ shares (formerly twinned units) in Compagnie Financière Richemont SA, Switzerland. There are 522 000 000 ‘B’ registered shares of CHF 0.10 each in issue.
