II. CLAIMANT IDENTIFICATION
If you purchased or acquired Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. (“Santander”) common stock and held the certificate(s) in your name, you are the beneficial purchaser or acquirer as well as the record purchaser or acquirer. If, however, you purchased or acquired Santander common stock, and the certificate(s) were registered in the name of a third party, such as a nominee or brokerage firm, you are the beneficial purchaser or acquirer and the third party is the record purchaser or acquirer.
Use Part I entitled “Claimant Identification” to identify each purchaser or acquirer of record (“nominee”), if different from the beneficial purchaser or acquirer of the Santander common stock that forms the basis of this claim. THIS CLAIM FORM MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE ACTUAL BENEFICIAL PURCHASER(S) OR ACQUIRER(S) OR THE LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE OF SUCH PURCHASER(S) OR ACQUIRER(S) OF THE SANTANDER COMMON STOCK UPON WHICH THIS CLAIM IS BASED.
All joint purchasers or acquirers must sign this Claim Form. Executors, administrators, guardians, conservators, and trustees must complete and sign the Claim Form on behalf of persons represented by them and their authority must accompany this claim and their titles or capacities must be stated. The Social Security (or taxpayer identification) number and telephone number of the beneficial owner may be used in verifying the claim. Failure to provide the foregoing information could delay verification of your claim or result in rejection of your claim.
III. CLAIM FORM
Use Part II entitled “Schedule of Transactions in Santander Common Stock,” to supply all required details of your transaction(s) in Santander common stock.
On the schedules, you must provide: (a) the number of shares of Santander common stock you held at the close of trading on February 2, 2015 (i.e., your total holdings as of the start of the Settlement Class Period); (b) all of the requested information with respect to all of your purchases and all of your sales of Santander common stock that took place during the Settlement Class Period (February 3, 2015 through and including March 15, 2016); and (c) all of your sales of Santander common stock that took place during the period March 16, 2016, through and including June 13, 2016), whether such transactions resulted in a profit or a loss. Failure to report all such transactions may result in the rejection of your claim.
List each transaction separately and in chronological order, by trade date, beginning with the earliest. You must accurately provide the month, day, and year of each transaction you list. The date of covering a “short sale” is deemed to be the date of purchase of Santander common stock. The date of a “short sale” is deemed to be the date of sale of Santander common stock. Copies of broker confirmations or other documentation of your transactions in Santander common stock should be uploaded to your claim. Failure to provide this documentation could delay verification of your claim or result in rejection of your claim.
NOTICE REGARDING ELECTRONIC FILES: Certain claimants with large numbers of transactions may request, or may be requested, to submit information regarding their transactions in electronic files.
