    Q. What should I do if I have lost my Cerner stock certificates?
    A.

    If a certificate is lost, stolen, or destroyed notify our Transfer Agent, Computershare , immediately so that a "stop transfer" instruction can be placed on our records to prevent transfer of ownership to another person. Computershare will send you the forms to permit the issuance of a replacement certificate. In order to replace your certificates, you must obtain an indemnity bond at your expense to protect all parties against the possibility that the lost certificates might return to circulation. The cost is three percent of the market value.

    Q. How does someone buy or sell Cerner Corporation stock?
    A.

    Cerner stock can be bought or sold through a stock broker, bank, or generally through a financial institution that provides brokerage services.

    Q. How do I transfer my shares?
    A.

    Endorse the stock certificate on the reverse side or on a separate stock power exactly as your name is printed on the face of the certificate. All owners must sign. Have your signature(s) medallion guaranteed by an eligible guarantor institution.

    Provide issuance instructions, including the name(s), address and tax identification number of the new holder.

    If the name of more than one new holder will appear on the certificate, indicate the type of tenancy (joint tenancy, tenants in common, etc.) If the new registration is a trust registration, provide the date of the trust, the trustees of the trust, and the trust beneficiary. If the stock is for a minor, it should be made in a custodial registration. Please provide the name of the custodian, the name of the minor and the state under whose laws the gift of stock is being made. It is also recommended that you complete a W-8 or W-9 to certify the tax information on the new account.
