12 Steps to Grower-Producer members trading their shares

In 1912, the legendary Sir Apirana Ngata formed the Waiapu Farmers Company, first east Coast based Co-Op to support Maori freehold landowners in the rohe.Had Sir Apirana had access to the technology of today supported by the Treaty of Waitangi claims process, his commercial kaupapa, (had it not been for the political machinations of the pre WWII era), would have become an intergenerational success story in the evolution of the Co-Op business model in Aotearoa/NZ

The Mataatua Whenua Co-Op holds the vision of Sir Apirana as its mantra in its kaupapa to deliver a $1B PA Grower-Producer owned commercial enterprise within a decade, controlled and owned by both general and Maori freehold landowners as the Transacting Member Shareholders.

P2P Trading Eco-System

All share trading in the "Treasury" shares (i.e. the Common Voting Shares) outstanding of Mataatua Manuka Cooperative Ltd (NZ) will be able to be traded under SEC Rule 144 on a recognized P2P exchange when such trading is cleared to commence. This is anticipated to start at the end of 180 day lock-up period.

Share Price Discovery

The P2P trading system monetizes, capitalizes and realizes commercialized intellectual property by democratizing access to internet delivered capital through a DIY fintech eco-system supported by a social-centric P2P share price discovery and exit platform for better investment outcomes.

The Trading Platform

No arrangements have been made at this time. The directors plan to complete such arrangements with a licensed US based P2P share trading platform prior to the end of the 180 day lock-up period following the closing of the Post-Seed round.

Common Voting Shares

Both the Common Voting Shares (CVS) and the Convertible Capital Notes (CCN) issued by the Co-Op will be tradable. Collectively these shares will represent the market value of the Co-Ops trading operations, including the value adding affiliates such as 177 East Ltd, Mataatua Macadamia Ltd, Manuka Oil Technology Ltd,  177 East Ltd and POI Honey Ltd.
