Sale of minimum shareholdings
As advised in the chairman’s letter in February and a further notice to qualifying shareholders in March, we implemented a sale facility for those shareholders with a less than minimum holding (i.e. less than 100 shares). This followed the recent conclusion of regulatory pricing processes and ongoing enquiries from small shareholders about their sale options.
Shareholders who did not return a Retention form, or increase their holding above the minimum holding level, before 5pm (New Zealand time) on 24 June 2016 had their shares sold through the sale facility on 28th and 29th June 2016. Chorus paid the related brokerage fees.
The average price received for all shares sold through the sale facility was NZ$4.0514 per share and proceeds were paid as per shareholder’s existing dividend payment instructions. The AUD exchange rate was NZ$1 = AU$0.9558

Shares for good
If you own a very small number of Chorus shares you may decide to donate them to Shares for Good.
Shares for good
Shares for Good has been established to provide a charitable home for unwanted shares and a place for those wanting to sell shares to benefit charities in New Zealand.
Many people have small shareholdings that are more bother than they are worth, keeping or selling.
Shares for Good is a pro-bono collaboration between JBWere, NZX, Computershare and Link Market Services. 100% of proceeds from the sale of your shares goes directly to the recipient charity.
