FONTERRA REQUESTS TEMPORARY TRADING HALT
Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited (for itself and on behalf of Fonterra Shareholders’ Fund) has requested an immediate trading halt to be applied to their respective securities on:
1. the ASX;
2. NZX Main Board/Debt Market; and
3. the Fonterra Shareholders Market.
Fonterra is currently preparing its annual financial statements for the financial year ended 31 July 2018. As a result of the work being undertaken there may be a variation from the earnings guidance previously given to the market. Fonterra is working to determine whether this is the case and expects to be in a position to notify the market by the close of business on 10 August 2018.
Accordingly, a trading halt has been requested to allow Fonterra to determine this and to make any required announcement to the market.
