oAmadeueso. I did the W8-BEN via an online link with TD which resulted in success. Interestingly I was with Halifax and last week they said I could not trade US gw shares so I moved to TD. I see the following on my account setting
"GW Pharmaceuticals Plc has announced its intention to cancel the admission of its Ordinary shares from trading on Alternative Investment Market (AIM) on 5th December 2016. GW Pharmaceuticals Plc will retain its U.S. listing on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) under ticker symbol GWPH. The announcement includes conversion of the Ordinary shares into ADRs. Please note we are verifying the full details and a corporate action including the options available to you will be dispatched shortly." Hopefully it wont involve too much hassle as I printed of the stuff from gw web site and its a bit unclear for my limited grey matter:)
I have a share dealing account with Halifax,and they told me yesterday that as they ie Halifax share dealing. deal on Nasdaq all I have to do ,when i get their notification(think I could do it now if I wanted) is to log into my account,and press the (right!) button to say that I accept a transfer of my shares to Nasdaq,and thats it,seems a bit too easy to me! Why dont you contact Halifax?
As for the IRS benny form thing,I have no clue,perhaps someone else will,
Hello to my old friends!! I have held some shares since 1998,and I intend to keep them,until The Grand Finale!! I do not have a broker nor Finanical Advisor.I do have a Halifax Share dealing account,I phoned them this morning and they told me that in about a weeks time,I will be getting a notification and that if I wish to transfer my shares all I have to do is go on line ,then deal now and then press the button asking me if I accept Nasdaq,and thats it.Halifax deal on Nasdaq also will transfer my shares in my ISA.It does sound too easy so best make your own inquiries.I also checked with my linked current account provider TSB and they are OK with this.
The British horticultural industry has been struggling for years. That's no secret. We have a polygopoly here in the UK with supermarkets and they tell suppliers what they will pay for goods - unless you're Unilever and have brands like Marmite. Companies have been pulling out of tomatoes for years - just check Government figures of annual crop production and see the decline. Its massive. So yes for British Sugar I imagine this was a unique opportunity to diversify . For the British consumer - they will see a rise in the price of tomatoes for sure. This is the biggest dedicated tomato grower pulling out of UK production just as imports for the first time in years become expensive for UK retailers!! So its bad news for the tomato buying consumer.
So its not a ballsy move for British Sugar. Its a massively ballsy move for GW though. GW must have committed to a long term contract (which is another reason why British Sugar would want to supply GW - no UK retailers gives out supply contracts - tomatoes are a commodity). Just to convert the glasshouses must be costing over £3-4 million.
This is actually a bit step for cannabis production worldwide. Its fascinating.
