Nominations For Fonterra Elections Open Today

Nominations are now open for Fonterra’s Board of Directors, Shareholders’ Council and Directors’ Remuneration Committee elections.

Nominations must be received by the Returning Officer, Warwick Lampp of, by 12 noon on Friday 19 August 2005.

Candidates for the elections have to be Fonterra shareholders, or a shareholder of a company or a member of a partnership or entity that is. Candidates must also be nominated and seconded by Fonterra shareholders. Nomination forms are available from the Returning Officer who can be contacted via the Election Hotline on 0508 666 446.

Nominations can be faxed to 0508 666 447 or mailed to the Returning Officer, P O Box 5252, Christchurch.

The Directors and Directors’ Remuneration Committee members will be elected in a nationwide vote. Councillors will be elected by shareholders in 10 wards.

Current Fonterra Directors Greg Gent, Earl Rattray, and Jim van der Poel have advised they will stand for re-election in the Fonterra Directors election.

Three shareholder-elected Directors, a third of Council and two members of the Directors’ Remuneration Committee retire annually by rotation. There is a by-election in one additional Shareholders’ Council ward because a casual vacancy has arisen.

The Shareholders’ Council elections are being held in the following 10 wards:
Ward 1 Northern Northland Ward 4 South Auckland
Ward 7 Otorohanga Ward 10 South Waikato
Ward 13 Hauraki Ward 16 Central Taranaki
Ward 17 South Taranaki Ward 19 Wairarapa
Ward 22 Canterbury North Ward 25 South Central/West Southland
The three elections will run concurrently. The voting period is from 5 September until Monday 10 October, and results will be finalised and announced at Fonterra’s Annual Meeting in Whangarei on Tuesday 11 October 2005.

The Single Transferable Vote (STV) voting system, by postal, fax and internet voting, will be used for all elections.
