The shares can/must be repurchased by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council (100 per cent owner of Quayside) under the following scenarios:
Put option exercised by shareholders: shareholders may, by special resolution, require the Bay of Plenty Regional Council to purchase back the shares at $1, in any of the following events:
- Quayside Holdings fails to make a dividend payment within five business days of the dividend date;
- Quayside Holdings ceases to carry on business; or
- Quayside Holdings is subject to insolvency, liquidation, receivership or similar.
Call option exercised by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council, under the following two scenarios:
- The council can choose to buy back the shares at any time, so long as at least 100 million shares remain uncalled. The purchase price will be the greater of $1 or the average price that the shares have been trading at on the NZDX over the 10 preceding business days; or
- The council can choose to buy back all the shares if there is a ‘change in relevant regulation’ (for a definition of this refer to the investment statement), which has a material effect on the regulatory or tax treatment of the Perpetual Preference Shares or increases the cost to Quayside of maintaining the shares. The purchase price in this instance will be $1.
Yes – dividends are expected to be fully imputed, meaning the tax on the dividend is already paid for you. The cash amount you can expect to receive is the dividend, less 28 per cent tax (being the current company tax rate). A dividend certificate will be received which shows you the gross amount of the dividend and the tax that has been paid on your behalf. This information should be used when completing your annual tax return.
