Both Landowners & investors alike own our "treasury Shares"

The Common Voting Shares (CVS) in the Co-Ops US capital program company are referred to as the "Treasury Shares". This because they are the "value repository" instrument that Co-Op landowners "Out East"  own alongside investors who share the 1,000,000 macadamia tree kaupapa (objective) of the Co-Op. These shares differ to the Grower-Member Shareholder (GMS) "Transacting Member" shares held by our producer landowners in the NZ incorporated Co-Op registered under the New Zealand Cooperative Companies Act 1996. They differ in that the "treasury shares" are both voting and profit sharing, reflecting the market value of the Co-Op as a macadamia 'n honey producer group. Shares that can be traded for capital profit realization  when trading starts in these shares under Rule 144 through a proprietary real time P2P members only trading platform. The Common Voting (Treasury) Share offering set out in the Rule 504 offer document below is only available to Rule 501 Qualifying Investors as permitted under the (US) Jobs Act 2012. Private placements are also possible with parties as permitted at law. The current US$1M offer is available only to US based Rule 501 qualifying investors, details of which are available only through the website of our US "Treasury-Holding" company based in Denver, Colorado.
