    Ordinary Shares - What rights do I have?

    Ordinary Shares - What rights do I have? 14th Feb 18 at 2:59 PM
    While working for a company a few years back there was an industry downturn and the company needed some fresh funding. They asked some of the staff to invest some of their money in the form of Ordinary Shares. This was back in 2015 (I then left in 2016 but they declined to buy back my shares) and since then I have not received any notifications, updates infact anything at all relating to these shares.

    As an Ordinary Shareholder in a company what am I entitled to and how do I find out whether any dividends have been paid to people that are still in the company?

    Thanks

    Which company?

    If it's a UK company then the annual reports filed with Companies House should reveal whether any dividends were paid.

    The incorporation document (and potentially others) should show what rights ordinary shareholders have.

    My share certificate was dated the 22nd of June 2015 and in the filing history it states that on the 3rd of November the board agreed to pay 3.00 pence per share which was approved on the 3rd of November 2015. At what point do I become legible for any dividends?
