Targeted Share Offer

​The registration process, and who is eligible for the proposed share offer, will be outlined once the due diligence Zespri has to first undertake is completed, and the details of the proposed share offer are available. For those with new plantings/new developments, so we can identify you and allocate the relevant entitlement, we are conducting a registration process.  The registration process will involve completing the Registration of New Plantings/Developments form (attached) and supplying a supporting GPS map that is no less than two years old.

As for the definition of a new planter and a new developer:

New Planter: a grower already known to Zespri and who has made new plantings since 1 January 2015 of 0.5 contiguous (adjoining) hectare or more, is not yet in full production in relation to those new plantings, and has provided a Registration of New Plantings/Developments to Zespri by the date specified below. The area subject to the new planting will be allocated an assumed production figure.

Assumed Production Green = 10,400 trays per hectare
Assumed Production Gold   = 14,000 trays per hectare

New Developer: a grower already known to Zespri who may have a new block or Kiwifruit Property Identification Number (KPIN) that they are preparing for development. This may include bare land, structures only or rootstock. The area subject to the new planting will be allocated an assumed production figure.

Assumed Production Green = 10,400 trays per hectare

New Entrants with greenfields are slightly different.  These are growers who are completely new to the industry (identified by a legal entity name) and have no other orchards in the legal entity name in which they own their greenfields, and where the greenfield site has not produced kiwifruit for supply to Zespri in the last 5 years. A “deemed production” rule is defined by the Constitution and determines the new entrants’ eligibility to purchase shares. If you consider you fall into the ‘new entrants with greenfields’, classification please contact the Grower Support Services team to register as a grower and to register for a KPIN if you have not already done so.  You will then become eligible for deemed production, and an entitlement to be allocated to you in the share offer.
