NZ$750k (US$500k) will (1) commence manuka oil extraction on Kohumaru Manuka Station in NZ and (2) open the manuka oil products distribution hub in Colorado.
This sum has been committed by a US based Family Office to (1) increase oil production in NZ and (2) expand US distribution through a Denver fulfillment centre/pilot pop-up shop..
A retail investor based crowdfunding round of US$500k is proposed to support a P2P Share Price Discovery, share trading platform and launch product viral marketing activity.
A Private Placement Memorandum has been prepared, providing details of a private placement of 3.75M Convertible Capital Notes (CCN) by Mataatua Manuka Cooperative Ltd (MMCL) priced at NZ$0.20c per each CCN. Full subscription of the Post-Series A round will deliver a 25.4% stake in MMCL in the event of conversion of the CCN. The founders preference is to secure the Minimum Subscription portion of the round from a single investor who can (1) commit some of their time as a working director of the Co-Op who works "on the company" thus (2) freeing up the founders to focus on working "in the company" to ensure that all goes according to plan.
This was arranged by EzyXchange Ltd, a Colorado crowdfunding intermediary company registered with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) Division of Securities. The Round will be privately placed with a US Family Office as a follow-on to the Post-Seed round that (1) enables oil production to commence and (2) the shipment of the first shipment to the Denver distribution facility.
This round will be allocated as to 50% (US$500k) invested in NZ to expand the oil extraction capacity and 50% (US$500k) invested in the US to expand distribution capacity.
The Co-Op plans to file its "Statement of Foreign Entity Authority" to enable it to undertake a retail crowdfunding campaign in the USA to attract a number of smaller retail shareholders which provides a wider "spread" of shareholders.
These shareholders will be classified as "Investor Members" of the Co-Op whose share trading activity will help to create interest in the Co-Op and its ongoing market value.
This campaign is planned to place 1M Common Voting Shares (CVS) priced at US$0.50cps, delivering circa 1,000 retail shareholders on the assumption that 500 folks on Main Street purchase 1,000 shares at a cost of US$500.
A large number of smaller retail shareholders seeking to trade their shares in the Co-Op through a P2P exchange will help to create Share Price Discovery that will support share trading between members of the Co-Op and members of the P2P exchange.
We enjoy chatting to people who support what we are doing to help Maori landowners to achieve greater economic yield from their whenua through our "whanau-on-the-manuka-whenua" program by becoming members of the Co-Op.
