Auckland, 19 August, 2004

Tenon Provides Update On Non-Freehold Forests Consent Process

Tenon Limited advised today that it had now received consents for the transfer of non-freehold forests to the Kiwi Consortium amounting to approximately NZ$188 million out of the total NZ$208 million in value to be transferred. The Company has, under the contract with the Kiwi Consortium, until the end of August to secure the remaining balance of the third party consents. The majority of the remaining landowners have indicated they will consent.

John Dell, Chief Executive Officer said, “We are very happy with progress in obtaining the third party consents. We entered into discussions with around 100 different owners, many of whom had no obligation to agree to the transfer to the Kiwi Consortium. While this was a time consuming and complex task, the process has run very smoothly. We are pleased that the vast majority of landowners have agreed to give the consents required in a timely manner.”
