Current Nzx Waivers
NZX has granted a waiver dated 23 March 2006 from NZSX Listing Rule 8.1.7 (change of option exercise price or number of underlying securities) to enable the Company to issue options under the Company's Executive Share Option Plan dated 28 February 2006 (as amended on 12 May 2006) in accordance with the exercise price formula contained in the Rules of the Plan. That exercise price formula permits the exercise price to be recalculated on a daily basis which may not be permitted by Listing Rule 8.1.7. The waiver has been granted on the condition that options outstanding issued under the Plan do not exceed 1% of the total shares of the Company. This waiver was varied on 6 July 2006 to permit TrustPower to vary the exercise price of Options issued on 29 May 2006 by amending the formula to permit the dividend with a record date of 26 May 2006 to be included in the calculation of the exercise price, notwithstanding that the record date of such dividends was prior to the issue date of the Options. NZX has also granted a waiver in May 2011 from NZSX Listing Rule 9.3.1 to permit the Directors of the Company and their respective Associated Persons to vote on resolutions of shareholders approving the issue of series of convertible subordinated bonds in which the Directors and Associated Persons of Directors are eligible to participate.
Nzx Disciplinary Action
There has been no action taken by NZX in relation to the Company under Listing Rule 5.4.2.
