The total value of the portfolio at the date of the offer was approximately $180 million.
CNZ shares were listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange on 29 June 2000 after the Crown offered 100% of the shares of CNZ in an initial public offering to investors. The shares were offered to investors on an instalment receipt basis whereby NZ$0.50 was payable on application and NZ$0.50 was payable on 30 June 2000. This was designed to give investors an enhanced yield for the first 20 months.
In December 1999, CNZ made a successful takeover offer for Shortland Properties Limited, a listed property investor with a portfolio made up of predominantly CBD office buildings in Auckland and Wellington.
The enlarged company now has a portfolio made up of Auckland and Wellington office buildings and carparks, and a number of small industrial investments.
