4 Key Concepts Below are the key concepts that make up the Share Purchase Plan: You are eligible to participate in the SPP if you were a permanent full-time or part-time employee of the Woolworths Group, are an Australian tax resident and are aged 18 years or over on 6 March The maximum number of Shares you may acquire in a financial year is equal to $1,000. This applies to all Eligible employees. The Plan is a tax effective way to purchase Woolworths shares as participants are able to meet the cost of acquiring Shares via salary sacrifice, using pre-tax income rather than after-tax income. No Australian brokerage costs will be payable by the Eligible employee in respect of the application for, and allocation of, Shares purchased through the SPP. Shares will be purchased and allocated by Woolworths Limited through its Employee Share Registry. Participation in the SPP is entirely at your discretion. The Invitation under the SPP is non-renounceable. This means you can not transfer your right to purchase Shares under the Invitation to anyone else. All Shares acquired under the SPP for a particular financial year will be transferred to you on the third anniversary of the final quarter purchase i.e. on or before 30 June and will rank equally with existing fully-paid ordinary Shares.(See page 10) Please ensure you read the Risks section starting on page 15 and the Taxation section starting on page 16. 4

5 How the Share Purchase Plan Works What is it? The SPP allows participating Woolworths Group employees to acquire Woolworths Limited Shares using pre-tax income rather than after-tax income. By income, we mean your salary, your wage or payments under the Short Term Incentive Plan (STIP) that you may receive as an employee of the Woolworths Group. Participation in the SPP is entirely voluntary it is your choice whether you participate. You can choose to acquire Shares by agreeing to forego a total of either $500 or $1,000 of your pre-tax income over the relevant financial year. Please read the Taxation section starting on page 16 carefully. Woolworths Limited will pay any brokerage costs associated with the acquisition of Shares through the SPP. All Dividends received on the Shares will be paid to you, and will be directly credited into the account to which you are paid by the Woolworths Group. Three Year Restriction Under the SPP, a three-year restriction period applies to the SPP shares acquired. Shares will be transferred to you on the third anniversary of the final quarter purchase i.e. on or before 30 June. Why is there a three-year restriction period? In order for the Shares issued under the SPP to qualify for tax exemption, there must be a restriction period in place. Tax legislation specifies that the minimum restriction period is three years from the Allocation date. Who is eligible? Invitations have been posted to permanent full-time and part-time employees of the Woolworths Group who were Australian tax residents and are 18 years or older on 6 March Salaried/EBA employees who participated in last year s SPP will automatically roll-over their participation to the current financial year. We will send you a reminder should you wish to withdraw or amend your election. STIP eligible employees will continue to complete an Application Form annually. There are no minimum service requirements the cut-off date was set to allow time to prepare and distribute Invitations for the opening of the Invitation period. There are some groups of employees who are not eligible for the SPP: - Casual employees; - Employees who are not Australian tax residents; and - Employees under the age of 18 years on 6 March

6 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued Can I buy more than $1000 of SPP Shares in this financial year? No, the tax concession is only available up to a maximum of $1000 of SPP Shares therefore the SPP is set up to a maximum of $1000 for any financial year. You may however purchase shares from your after-tax income through a Stockbroker provided the Company is not in a Blackout Period. (A Summary of Blackout Periods is available at Who We Are, Corporate Governance.) For Award/EBA employees or salaried employees Your gross wage or salary each Pay period will be reduced and Shares will be purchased on a quarterly basis in September, December, March and June during the financial year. Below is an example of how this may affect someone with an annual income of $45,000. With SPP Without SPP Gross $45,000 $45,000 Less: SPP deduction (Pre Tax) $1,000 NIL Gross after SPP deduction $44,000 $45,000 Less: Tax $6,507 $6,847 Less: Post Tax Share purchase * NIL $1,000 Net $37,493 $37,153 In this example, by participating in the SPP there is an annual tax saving of $340 compared to acquiring the same parcel of shares outside of the SPP, which means the net cost to acquire $1,000 of Shares was $660. Woolworths employees can check the amount deducted each Pay period on your payslip. SPP deductions are shown on the right hand side under the code IZ. * For the purpose of comparison, this example assumes that the employee not participating in the SPP purchases $1,000 worth of Shares using post-tax remuneration. How much will it cost per Pay period? Frequency of Pay period Contribution Amount Chosen $500 $1,000 Weekly $10.21 $20.41 Fortnightly $20.00 $40.00 Monthly $45.46 $90.91 NOTE: Weekly and Fortnightly deductions are calculated over a 49-week Pay period. Monthly deductions are calculated over an 11 month Pay period for some ALH employees. 6

7 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued What if I take leave without pay? If you commence any form of leave without pay (unless you are a STIP eligible employee), no further salary sacrifice deductions can occur and therefore you will be unable to acquire further Shares under the SPP while you are on leave without pay. You will retain any Shares that may have already been allocated to you, or if a salary sacrifice deduction has been made but Shares have not yet been allocated, this allocation will proceed as per the process outlined in the How the Share Purchase Plan Works section starting on page 5. Once you resume employment, your salary sacrifice deductions will recommence. For STIP Eligible employees Your gross STIP paid in September will be reduced and the allocation of Shares will occur in September. Below is an example of how this may affect STIP payments for an annual income of $65,000 with a $1,000 sacrifice and assuming STIP is achieved at 15%. With SPP Without SPP STIP at 15% $9,750 $9,750 Less: SPP deduction (Pre Tax) $1,000 NIL Gross after SPP deduction $8,750 $9,750 Less: Tax $2,975 $3,315 Less: Post Tax Share purchase * NIL $1,000 Net $5,775 $5,435 In this example, by participating in the SPP there is an annual tax saving of $340 compared to acquiring the same parcel of shares outside of the SPP, which means the net cost to acquire $1,000 of Shares was $660. * For the purpose of comparison, this example assumes that the employee not participating in the SPP purchases $1,000 worth of Shares using post-tax remuneration. 7

8 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued What if my STIP payment is not enough to cover my $500 or $1,000 SPP selection? Please contact the Employee Share Registry by at: or by phoning (02) to discuss further options for salary/wage deductions. When will Invitations and allocations be made? Invitations will be posted to your home address, as recorded in the payroll system, at the end of March If you choose to accept the Invitation, Shares will be allocated to you by the Company in the financial year as follows: For Award/EBA employees and salaried employees, Shares will be allocated on a quarterly basis in September, December, March and June in the relevant financial year. For STIP Eligible employees, Shares will be allocated in September of the relevant financial year. The allocation of Shares will be conducted by the Company through its Employee Share Registry and the Company will meet any brokerage costs associated with the purchase of Shares. The acquired Shares will be held through the Trustee, (explained further on page 10) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Woolworths Limited, on your behalf until the restrictions on the disposal of the Shares expire (unless the Woolworths Limited Board determines otherwise). Can I join the SPP at any time throughout the financial year? No. You can apply to join the Plan during the Invitation period only. Following the invitation closing date, no further applications will be accepted. Do I have to complete another Application form for this year s offer if I participated in last year s offer? Your participation will automatically roll-over each financial year unless you instruct us otherwise. Each year we will send you a reminder should you wish to withdraw or amend your election. However, if you are a STIP employee, your participation relates to a single financial year only, and a fresh Application form must be completed annually. 8

9 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued How can I keep track of how many Shares I have? If you participated in the SPP in past financial years, all new SPP Shares which are purchased in the current financial year will be held on the same Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) and you will receive confirmation of your acceptance. NOTE: for new participants, your acceptance confirmation will include your Securityholder Reference Number (SRN). Your Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) is important and should be kept safe and private. You will need to quote your SRN when dealing with the Employee Share Registry, to access your shareholding via the internet and for future share trading. Once your first allocation of Shares has been made for the current financial year, we will post your statement along with information to you explaining how to obtain access to your shareholding via the internet. All future statements will be made available online only. Do I receive Dividends during the three-year restriction period? Shares which are allocated to you are the same as Ordinary Shares but are held as restricted employee Shares until the three-year restriction period lapses. During the three-year restriction period, you will receive your Dividend information from the Employee Share Registry. During the restriction period Dividend Re-investment is not available. How will the Dividends be paid? Dividends will be paid automatically into the same bank account which you have nominated for your wages or salary to be paid into. Dividends are normally paid twice per year - in April and October. Am I entitled to vote at Woolworths Limited shareholder meetings? During the three-year restriction period, you will be able to direct the Trustee how to vote the SPP Shares held by the Trustee on your behalf. Once your Shares purchased under the SPP have passed their three-year restriction period, and have been transferred to you as fully-paid ordinary Shares, you are able to vote as a regular Woolworths Limited shareholder 9

10 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued Restrictions Under the SPP, a three-year restriction period applies to the SPP Shares you acquire. This means that while you remain employed by the Woolworths Group you cannot dispose of, deal in, or grant a security interest over, any interest in an SPP Share until the third anniversary following the date on which you acquire the final quarter purchase of shares - i.e. on or before 30 June. This three-year restriction only applies while you remain employed by the Woolworths Group. If you accept the Invitation to participate in the SPP, you agree to be bound by this restriction. Trust Arrangements The Trustee, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Woolworths Limited, will hold your SPP Shares on your behalf until the restrictions on the disposal of the Shares expire (unless the Woolworths Limited Board determines otherwise). Under the trust arrangements, you will possess substantially the same rights in respect of the Shares held by the Trustee on your behalf as if you held those Shares in your name. For example: You will receive any Dividends which are paid on the Shares held by the Trustee on your behalf, You will receive notice of meetings of Woolworths Limited shareholders and be able to direct the Trustee how to vote the Shares. The trust arrangements will also enable you to indirectly participate in any rights issues and bonus issues applicable to Shares held by the Trustee on your behalf. If a takeover offer is made for the Company, or a scheme of arrangement is announced, the Board may make determinations regarding your participation in the takeover offer or scheme of arrangement (including that you may instruct the Trustee to accept the takeover offer on your behalf). When the three year restriction period ends your Shares will be transferred to you by the Trustee on the third anniversary of the final quarter purchase - i.e. 30 June in that financial year. 10

11 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued What is the price of Shares allocated under the SPP? The Shares allocated under the SPP may be purchased on-market on the ASX by Woolworths Limited or issued directly by Woolworths Limited. If Shares are purchased on-market by Woolworths Limited, the Allocation price for Shares under the SPP will be the current market price of WOW Shares traded on the ASX at the time of purchase. If Shares are issued directly by Woolworths Limited, the Allocation price for Shares under the SPP will be the (five-day) Volume Weighted Average Price of Woolworths Limited s ordinary Shares as traded on the ASX up to (but excluding) the Allocation date. This is a trading benchmark commonly used in share plans. It is calculated by dividing the total value of Shares traded by the total number of Shares traded for every transaction during a five-day trading period to calculate an average price for Shares. How Many Shares Will I Acquire? The number of Woolworths Limited Shares to be allocated to the Trustee on your behalf will be the amount you have elected to sacrifice ($500 or $1,000) divided by the Allocation price, rounded down to the nearest whole Share. Any residual balance remaining will be carried forward and applied to the next purchase of Shares within the financial year. If there is a residual balance remaining after the final allocation of Shares for the financial year, this will be paid to you at that time. Two detailed examples of the number of Shares purchased under the SPP for a salary sacrifice of $1,000 are available on page 22 (for Award/EBA employees or salaried employees and for STIP eligible employees). Please note that these are examples only and the actual Share price at time of purchase will affect the outcome. 11

12 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued What if I change my mind? Once you accept the Invitation and your participation is accepted by the Company, you will be required to participate for the full tax year unless you cease employment with the Woolworths Group. What is Insider Trading and what are my Responsibilities? Being a Company shareholder brings a responsibility to comply with the laws governing employees who own Shares. These laws do not allow anyone with inside information to: Trade in (buy or sell) Woolworths Limited Shares or influence another person to trade in Woolworths Limited Shares; or Communicate the inside information to another person who is likely to trade in Woolworths Limited Shares. Inside information can be anything an employee sees or hears about the Company which is not known by the general public and relates to the Company s performance, business goals or decisions that may affect the Woolworths Limited Share price. It can include things like: - Company financial results which have not been publicly released; Any proposal to buy a new business or sell parts of the Woolworths Group s existing businesses; or Significant disputes, gains or loss of a major contract or major management changes. All employees are responsible for ensuring they comply with the Woolworths Limited Securities Dealing Policy. The Policy covers issues that you need to be aware of if you want to buy or sell Woolworths securities (including Shares, options and performance rights), including insider trading laws and blackout periods. The Policy is available on the Woolworths Limited website ( divisional intranet sites or from the Employee Share Registry which can be contacted by at: or by phone: on (02) , (02) or (02)

13 How the Share Purchase Plan Works, continued What happens if I leave the Woolworths Group before the full 12-month salary sacrifice period is up, or before the three-year restriction period is up? Shares previously acquired under the SPP will be transferred into your name. The Employee Share Registry will receive notification of your termination from the Pay Office and will write to you confirming the number of SPP Shares which have been transferred into your name as ordinary fully paid Shares. Following the end of the month in which your Shares were transferred, you will receive a Holding Statement from our external registrar, Computershare. This statement is your record of ownership of the Shares. How do I arrange for the Shares I acquire under the SPP to be sold? Once the three-year restriction period has passed and your Shares have been transferred to you as ordinary fully paid Shares, you can arrange to sell them on the ASX through a stockbroker. Remember that shares are a long-term investment and you may benefit from price accretion over the long term. 13

14 Factors Affecting the Share Price Many factors will affect the price of Shares. At any point in time these factors may include: Company Factors The profit outlook for Woolworths Limited. The profitability of Woolworths Limited. The Dividend policy of Woolworths Limited. The level of franking of Woolworths Limited Dividends. The credit ratings and strength of the balance sheet of Woolworths Limited. The success of marketing and other strategies adopted by Woolworths Group Companies, relative to its competitors strategies. External Factors Movements in the general level of share prices on local and international share markets. Developments in retail and other industries generally. The economic outlook in Australia and internationally. Changes in government fiscal, monetary and regulatory policies. Turnover and volatility of financial markets in Australia and overseas. Changes in interest rates, inflation rates, exchange rates and commodity prices. Acts of terrorism, the occurrence of hostilities or natural disasters. Things to consider Your financial needs and goals, both short and long term. Expectations about what investment returns are achievable and sustainable over time. 14

15 Risks Every investment involves an element of risk and employees should be aware that there are risks associated with share ownership. Shares should be considered a long-term investment. Things to be mindful of: Woolworths Limited is a limited liability company which means that people holding Shares are not required to contribute any more capital for their Shares once those Shares have been fully paid for, even in the event of losses by the Company. However, it is possible that if there are losses, or profits fall, holders of Shares may not receive Dividends or Dividends may be reduced and the value of their Shares may fall. The price of Shares as quoted on the ASX is volatile and moves up and down with market sentiment as well as factors which are specific to the Company. The price at which the Shares trade on the ASX may be higher or lower than historical prices. If investors decide to sell their Shares, the amount which may be received on the sale may be higher or lower than their present market price. The Company s latest annual report contains details of the Woolworths Group s performance and the factors which have impacted upon this performance during the period to which the report relates. These documents may be viewed on the Woolworths Limited website at Woolworths Limited is also required to notify the ASX of information about specified events and matters as they arise for the purposes of the ASX making that information available to the stock market conducted by the ASX. The most recent annual report and ASX announcements should be referred to for details of these matters. 15

16 Taxation 16 The SPP can provide a tax effective way to purchase shares in Woolworths. The following brief summary is a general guide to the Australian income tax consequences of participating in the SPP. It assumes that you are, and continue to be, a resident of Australia for income tax purposes. Acquisition of Shares Participation in the SPP will not be tax effective where your adjusted taxable income is more than $180,000. Your adjusted taxable income is the sum of the following: Your taxable income (this includes investment gains but not investment losses such as negatively geared property losses) Your reportable fringe benefits (as recorded on your Payment Summary Your reportable superannuation contributions (this includes salary sacrificed superannuation payments) For example, if Mary has taxable income of $70,000 (consisting of $80,000 salary and wages and $10,000 investment losses), reportable fringe benefits of $5,000 and reportable superannuation contributions of $8,000, her income for SPP purposes will be $93,000 calculated as follows: Salary or wages $80,000 Reportable fringe benefits $ 5,000 Reportable superannuation contributions $ 8,000 Total: $93,000 Please note that if your adjusted taxable income is above $180,000 you are not precluded from participating in the SPP. However, you will need to include the value of the shares that you acquire in your taxable income. As such the comments below regarding tax savings will not apply to you. By using your pre-tax income to acquire the Woolworths Limited Shares, the cost of acquiring those Shares will be less than if you had not participated in the SPP and instead purchased the Shares yourself using after-tax income. The table following shows the savings applicable for the financial year ending 30 June 2013 at varying earnings levels, if purchasing $1,000 worth of Shares through the SPP as compared with not using the SPP to purchase the same Shares.

17 Taxation, continued After-tax Cost Taxable Income Via SPP Non SPP Saving $18,200 - $37,000 $795 $1,000 $205 $37,001 - $80,000 $660 $1,000 $340 $80,001 - $180,000 $615 $1,000 $385 > $180,000 $1000 $1,000 Nil Notes: This table is current as at 31 January Tax scales and rates may be changed by the Federal Government at any time. This benefit will not be advantageous for employees who anticipate a total taxable gross income of less than $18,200 per annum or an adjusted taxable income of over $180,000 per annum. An example on page 6 shows the pre-tax deduction required to participate in the SPP for an annual income of $45,000. An example on page 7 shows the STIP deduction required to participate in the SPP for an annual income of $65,000 with STIP payments of 15%. Sale of Shares If you choose to sell the Shares after the three-year restriction period (or when you cease employment with the Woolworths Group) any gain made on the Shares will be subject to capital gains tax (CGT). The amount of the gain subject to CGT will be reduced by 50% where you have held the Shares for at least 12 months since the first allocation date. IMPORTANT It is important that you print and retain all SPP statements showing allocation prices and dates, as these will be required when completing your tax return. 17
