Shareholders Vote To Wind Up Property Leaders
August 23, 2001
STOCK EXCHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT
Shareholders Vote To Wind Up Property Leaders Companies
Statement made by Bill Wilson, Chairman,
Property Leaders New Zealand Ltd, Property Leaders Australia
Ltd and Property Leaders Australia and
New Zealand Ltd
At the annual meetings of the three Property Leaders companies today, shareholders voted to place the companies into voluntary liquidation and to delist them from the New Zealand Stock Exchange.
Shareholders appointed Laurence Chilcott and Peter Chatfield of Smith Chilcott as liquidators.
Shareholders accepted the recommendation of the companies’ directors that given the lack of investor support for the three property funds, and the likely loss of the binding ruling from Inland Revenue exempting them from paying tax on capital gains, the best way to preserve current shareholder wealth was to liquidate the companies.
