How it Works

SuperShare is a brand new opportunity for employees at Aristocrat to buy into the success we’re all striving to build together. No matter where you work, or how long you’ve worked here, as long as you’re part of the team (with just a few exceptions), you can join the plan.

SuperShare is an easy way to buy shares in Aristocrat directly from your post-tax salary. For every two shares you buy (up to the value of AU$5,000 or equivalent), we will give you one more for free in two years’ time. All you have to do to secure your free shares is to still be working at Aristocrat.

If you leave Aristocrat, you will keep all the shares you’ve bought, along with any free shares granted to you more than two years ago. Any free shares earmarked for you less than two years ago will be forfeited.

SuperShare has been created in direct response to employee feedback. It also reflects our values, particularly Collective Brilliance, as the scheme will help more of us to have a shared stake in Aristocrat’s success.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3

Watch your shareholding grow

Your money and your shares will be held in your own personal account with BoardRoom. BoardRoom is a specialist external partner who is managing SuperShare for Aristocrat.
Once a quarter, the money in your account will be used to buy as many Aristocrat shares as possible. These shares will be added to your BoardRoom account.
Any remaining cash will stay in your account and will be used to buy shares the following quarter – it will always be less than the price of one share.
For every two shares you buy up to the value of $5,000 AUD per year or equivalent, we promise to give you one share for free in two years’ time, if you are still working at Aristocrat.
You don’t need to hold onto the shares you purchased in order to receive the free shares after two years, as long as you remain at Aristocrat. The shares you purchase are immediately yours to do what you want with – subject of course to our Aristocrat share trading policy.
Login to your BoardRoom account any time to see how many shares you have, the shares you have been promised.
You can choose to leave SuperShare at any time.
You will automatically be re-enrolled each plan year unless you notify us otherwise.

Please note: if you’re in Macau your contributions won’t come out of your salary.

What it Costs

SuperShare is flexible and you can:

Vary the amount of your contributions twice a year
Stop participating at any time

There are some limits to how much you can put into SuperShare. When you’re choosing how much you want to contribute, keep in mind that you will be eligible to receive matching shares for the first $5,000 AUD you invest each year, as long as you are still employed two years after the purchase.

What You Get

For every two shares you buy, you can get one share for nothing – absolutely free! – after two years.

So, what does that look like?

Or you can see the current value of your award by viewing your SuperShare account on Shareworks.

As a shareholder, you’ll also be entitled to receive any dividends that may be declared. A dividend is a payment made to shareholders, which is usually a proportion of the company’s profits made in the previous period. Payments are made on a ‘cents per share’ basis. We don’t always pay dividends, so it’s not a guarantee. When we do, yours will be paid into your SuperShare account on Shareworks. Login to enter your bank details and transfer the dividends to your own account.

You can check what dividends we’ve paid in the past on our investor relations site.

If you join SuperShare you’ll be investing your own money in Aristocrat shares and there is a risk that, if our share price goes down, your shares will be worth less than you paid for them. The shares we give you for free can help to reduce that risk, but it’s important that you seek your own professional financial advice and understand the risks before making any financial or investment decisions.

When You Get It

As an Aristocrat employee, we want to deliver you great benefits, but also want to encourage you to stay with us. So, to get the most out of the SuperShare plan, you need to still be employed by Aristocrat in two years.

Once you’ve been in the plan for two years, your promised free shares will become yours to keep.

You can sell the shares you buy with your money whenever you want, provided you are in compliance with the company’s share trading policy. This is explained in the Legal Information section below.
