Fonterra Elections Voting Period Passes Half-Way


Fonterra Elections Voting Period Passes Half-Way Point

Fonterra shareholders are urged to get their votes in for the Fonterra elections.

Voting for the Fonterra Shareholders’ Council and Directors’ Remuneration Committee elections closes at midday on Monday 10 October 2005.

Returning Officer Warwick Lampp said that although the voting period has passed the half-way mark, only 20 per cent of potential votes had been received.

“All shareholders should take this opportunity to exercise their right to vote and have a say,” says Mr Lampp.

“Shareholders should have received their voter packs by now. Any shareholder who hasn’t received a voting pack should contact me immediately for a replacement.”

On-line secure voting through Fencepost.com is available this year for both elections. Postal voting and fax voting can also be used.

There are elections for Shareholders’ Councillors in Ward 13 Hauraki and Ward 17 South Taranaki as well as four candidates for the two available positions on the Directors’ Remuneration Committee.

This year there is no election for the Fonterra Board of Directors as the three sitting directors, Greg Gent, Earl Rattray and Jim van der Poel, were elected unopposed.

Voting closes at 12 noon on Monday 10 October 2005 and results will be announced by the Chairman at Fonterra’s Annual Meeting in Whangarei on Tuesday 11 October 2005.

Any queries regarding the election should be directed to the Returning Officer on the Election Hotline 0508 666 446.
