Haier New Zealand Investment Holding Company Ltd's (Haier) compulsory acquisition of Fisher & Paykel Appliances is drawing to a close with tomorrow being the last day for shareholders to sign and return Transfer Forms.

Shareholders who have signed and returned their Transfer Forms by December 6, 2012 will receive payment of NZ$1.28 per Fisher & Paykel Appliances share within seven days of the receipt of their Transfer Form.

For shareholders who have not signed and returned the Transfer Form by December 6, 2012, payment for their shares will be made to Fisher & Paykel Appliances.
