News Release

NZSE All Gross Index Performs Well
Compared With Other Major World Markets

The New Zealand Stock Exchange (“NZSE”) NZSE All Gross Index, which covers all domestic listed equity securities, rose by 16.71% in 2001 to finish the year at 1886.46. This result ranks the NZSE All Gross Index ninth in terms of performance, compared to the indices of 53 other stock exchanges monitored by the World Federation of Stock Exchanges. The NZSE All Gross Index out performed all major world indices (Nikkei 225: Japan; Dow Jones Industrials: US; NASDAQ: US; FTSE100: UK; All Ords: Australia).

The NZSE publishes a Fact Book that covers the activities of the stockmarket for the full calendar year and provides useful information on such subjects as the regulatory environment, listing rules, trading mechanism, indices, as well as comprehensive statistics including the market performance of NZ listed company securities.

The Fact Book for 2001 is now available and can be obtained at a cost of $30.00 (including GST) on request to the
