Statement of reasons

This notice applies to acts or omissions occurring on or after 25 February 2004.

The Tindall Foundation (the Foundation) is a charitable trust registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957. The Foundation, as a body corporate, holds more than 20% of the voting rights in The Warehouse Group Limited (The Warehouse), a code company. The trustees of the Foundation control the voting rights in The Warehouse held by the Foundation.

The Takeovers Panel (the Panel) has granted exemptions from rule 6(1) of the Takeovers Code (the Code) to Jennifer Mary Casey, Peter Francis Menzies, Margaret Maria Tindall, and Stephen Robert Tindall in respect of any increase or deemed increase in the percentage of voting rights in The Warehouse held or controlled by them as a result of the following changes in the trustees of the Foundation:

  • (a) the appointment of Mr Menzies as a trustee on 25 February 2004:

  • (b) the retirement of John Richard Avery and Keith Raymond Smith as trustees on 22 August 2006:

  • (c) the appointment of Ms Casey as a trustee on 8 September 2006.

By operation of rule 6(2)(b) of the Code, when Mr Menzies and Ms Casey were appointed as trustees, they joined the existing trustees in the controlling of the voting rights in The Warehouse held by the Foundation, and were deemed to have become the controller of more than 20% of the voting rights in The Warehouse.

By operation of rule 6(2)(c) of the Code, on the retirement of Messrs Avery and Smith, the remaining trustees of the Foundation increased the extent to which they shared in the holding or controlling of voting rights in The Warehouse held by the Foundation, and were deemed to have become the controller of an increased percentage of the voting rights.

The Panel considers that the exemptions are appropriate and consistent with the objectives of the Code because—

  • although the change of trustees resulted in an indirect change in the control of voting rights in The Warehouse, there was no effective change in the control of voting rights in The Warehouse as a result of the change of trustees:

  • shareholders of The Warehouse were not disadvantaged in not having an opportunity to vote on the change of trustees at a meeting of shareholders, as the change had no real effect on those shareholders.

Notes
1 General
  • This is a reprint of the Takeovers Code (The Tindall Foundation) Exemption Notice 2006. The reprint incorporates all the amendments to the notice as at 6 November 2008, as specified in the list of amendments at the end of these notes.

    Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that have yet to come into force or that contain relevant transitional or savings provisions are also included, after the principal enactment, in chronological order.

2 Status of reprints
  • Under section 16D of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption applies even though editorial changes authorised by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have been made in the reprint.

    This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the principal enactment and its amendments are contained.

3 How reprints are prepared
  • A number of editorial conventions are followed in the preparation of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions, see http://www.pco.parliament.govt.nz/legislation/reprints.shtml or Part 8 of the Tables of Acts and Ordinances and Statutory Regulations, and Deemed Regulations in Force.

4 Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
  • Section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set out in sections 17D and 17E of that Act so that, to the extent permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.

    A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000. Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since 1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted by section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legislation reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of the reprint.

    In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the authority of section 17C of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

    • omission of unnecessary referential words (such as of this section and of this Act)

    • typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5 point)

    • layout of provisions, including:

      • indentation

      • position of section headings (eg, the number and heading now appear above the section)

    • format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appears in bold type, without quotation marks)

    • format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as the 1st day of January 1999 is now expressed as 1 January 1999)

    • position of the date of assent (it now appears on the front page of each Act)

    • punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions)

    • Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced with arabic numerals, and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • case and appearance of letters and words, including:

      • format of headings (eg, headings where each word formerly appeared with an initial capital letter followed by small capital letters are amended so that the heading appears in bold, with only the first word (and any proper nouns) appearing with an initial capital letter)

      • small capital letters in section and subsection references are now capital letters

    • schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces First Schedule), and all cross-references are changed accordingly

    • running heads (the information that appears at the top of each page)

    • format of two-column schedules of consequential amendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they are rearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chronological).
