Investors in KLP Investments (KLPI) have voted in favour of a proposed restructuring i.e. doing an in-specie distribution of the Kauana units owned by KLPI, and then liquidating KLPI. On a shareholding basis there was 79% support for the special resolution that gives effect to the restructuring. On a number of shareholder basis 80% of shareholders voted in support of the resolution.
From here, the next step involves the offeror working with the board of the farm syndicate to put together valuation information on which the shareholders will be asked to select a share price to be used in the pre-emptive rights that are obliged to be followed i.e. the price at which the shareholder would be prepared to sell their units to other investors in the Kauana farm syndicate.
Kauana is an established 253 ha (237 effective ha) dairy farm located 54km north of Invercargill and 18km north of Winton, at 396 Winton Channnel Road. The 820 cow wintering barn enables greater control of nutrients and reduces environmental impact whilst extending the lactation period by up to 30 days.
