The Directors of HiWave Technologies PLC have recently been made aware of several of our shareholders being approached by a “US Major Corporation”.
The shareholder is asked if he is willing to sell his shares at an inflated price, and told he needs to purchase an insurance bond prior to any transaction taking place.
The Directors believe this to be a share scam and would urge our shareholders to be cautious about parting with any money.
The attached link is to the FSA website where there is considerable information relating to share scams. There is also a facility where you can report the details of any communication you have had from these potential scammers.
HiWave has reported this to the FSA but are not able to stop these scammers from contacting our shareholders.

As HiWave’s Registrar, Capita manages your shareholding and can help you with many things, from changing an address to buying and selling shares.
Capita Registrars have provided the following guidance for HiWave shareholders in relation to services available from them:
Are you registered to use the share portal? If so, the fastest way for you to get information about your shareholding - including the number of shares you hold and details of your dividend payments - is to log on to the Capita shareholder portal at www.capitashareportal.com
You can also change your address and your bank details on the portal.
If you have not already registered to use the shareholder portal, you will need to do so before you can access all of your information and make changes. To register, go to www.capitashareportal.com and follow the online instructions.
We cannot accept instructions by email to change your address or your bank details. This is for security and anti-fraud reasons.
There are several ways that you can securely tell us about your changes.
If you have changed your name you need to send us a signed letter with the legal document which confirms this, such as a marriage certificate or decree absolute.
If you want to transfer your shares you will need to complete a stock transfer form, which we can arrange to send you if you call the shareholder helpline below. Alternatively, this form can be downloaded from www.capitaregistrars.com/shareholders/information
If you have lost your share certificate and need a replacement you will need to complete a letter of indemnity which will involve you completing a form which we can send to you. There will normally be a charge for this service, based on the value of the shares.
To arrange this you can call the shareholder helpline below or you can confirm this in writing by sending us a letter or a fax. If you call the shareholder helpline, in most cases you can pay the fee using a debit card. For security reasons, we cannot accept a request for a letter of indemnity by email.
