Is there any limit on how many Heartland shares I can hold?

Under the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act, a person must obtain the prior written consent of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand before acquiring an interest of 10% or more in Heartland.

The Takeovers Code prohibits a person from becoming the holder of more than 20% of the shares of Heartland, other than in accordance with the provisions of that code (which prescribes procedures for partial or full offers).

Under the Financial Markets Conduct Act, there are disclosure obligations for any person whose relevant interest in Heartland shares reaches a 5% threshold (with ongoing disclosure obligations for any subsequent movements of 1% or more in that substantial holding).
