Vodafone Qatar shareholders now have more time to save money when choosing their exclusive Star Number following the news that the closing date for shareholders to redeem their Vodafone Star Number vouchers has been extended to 31 December 2010.

Since August Vodafone has mailed more than 82,000 vouchers to its shareholders as a way of thanking them for their support, entitling them to receive a discount when they choose a Vodafone Star Number. Vouchers range in value from QR500 up to QR50,000 depending on the number of shares held with Vodafone’s largest shareholders enjoying QR50,000 off their Star Number reservation fee.

All shareholders who were on the official Qatar Exchange share register on the date of the Vodafone Qatar IPO (May 2009), at the Vodafone Qatar financial year end (31 March 2010) or the date of the Vodafone General Assembly (28 June 2010) are eligible to receive a Star Number voucher.

While many vouchers have been redeemed and owners now benefit from their personal Star Number, in recognition of its duty to all shareholders Vodafone Qatar is encouraging all shareholders to redeem their Star Number voucher at a Vodafone retail store before the end of the year.

“We want to say shukran to Vodafone Qatar shareholders for their invaluable support,” says Acting CEO John Tombleson.  “We’ve accomplished many things in our first year, and none of them would have been possible without the commitment of our shareholders.  This is our way of saying Thank You.”

Any Vodafone Qatar shareholder who has either misplaced or did not receive a Star Number Voucher should present their Qatari ID or passport at a Vodafone retail store to claim and redeem their voucher before 31 December 2010.

“We are delighted to announce the extension of the Star Number vouchers to give all shareholders the chance to enjoy the benefits of Vodafone including our new Freedom Accounts which offer great value, more flexibility and control,” added John Tombleson.
