What is the Direct Registration System?

The Direct Registration System, or DRS, is a system that allows your shares in Mueller Water Products to be held in your name in a "book-entry" account and tracked electronically, without having a physical certificate issued. You retain full ownership of your shares, and you have all the traditional rights and privileges as holders of shares held in certificate form. You have been assigned an account number and Computershare Shareowner Services is the transfer agent responsible for maintaining your shares on Mueller Water Products' books.

Is the Direct Registration System safe?

DRS or book-entry is the securities industry's preferred method of security ownership and is used for all U.S. Treasury bills, bonds, notes, U.S. government agency securities, and mutual funds. DRS allows you to provide trading instructions in a quick and efficient manner, and lets you avoid the risk of holding a stock certificate that might be lost, stolen, or destroyed. The process to replace a lost paper stock certificate may require you to purchase a surety bond and complete an affidavit, which can be costly and time-consuming—all of which is avoided by using DRS.

Can I get a paper stock certificate representing my Mueller Water Products shares?

No. Mueller Water Products will not issue paper stock certificates. You will receive periodic DRS statements from Computershare Shareowner Services reflecting the number of shares that you own and any account activity.

What types of information can the transfer agent provide?
