Property Trust To Relinquish ASX Listing

Kiwi Income Property Trust To Relinquish ASX Listing

Auckland (September 05, 2003) – Kiwi Income Property Trust will relinquish the listing of its units and converting notes on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) from Friday, 12 September 2003. An application for voluntary delisting has been made to the ASX. In the interim, the trading of its units and converting notes on the ASX will be suspended at the end of today. Trading in its units and converting notes on the New Zealand Exchange (NZX) remains unaffected.

Kiwi Income Property Trust chief executive Angus McNaughton said that, given the lack of trading of Kiwi Income on the ASX, there is obviously a preference to trade the Trust’s units on the NZX.

“It doesn’t make sense for our unit holders to incur the dual costs of a listing in both markets when investors are content to simply trade on the NZX,” Mr McNaughton said.

Kiwi Income Property Trust continues to be one of the most actively traded issues on the NZX, and ranks 13th by market capitalisation on the NZSX 50.

“There is strong demand for KIPT on the NZX from investors all around the world,” Mr McNaughton said.
