    Q. Why has CNPR decided to delist from the ASX?

     

    A. It has always been intended that CNPR would be delisted following implementation of the restructure of the Centro Property Group in December 2011, as disclosed to CNPR securityholders in the restructure documentation. Trading in CNPR securities has been suspended since the restructure and, given securityholders no longer have any economic interest, in the securities, there is no reason for CNPR to remain listed.

     

    Q. What does this mean for CNPR securityholders? Does this mean my securities have been cancelled?

     

    A. There is no change to registered holder name, address or securities held. Securityholders continue to hold the securities until the securities are redeemed or cancelled when CNPR is wound up.

     

    Q. Can I sell my securities?

     

     A. Off-market transfers can be actioned by completing and returning an off-market transfer form to Link Market Services for processing (NB: as client will not be ASX-listed, no $50+GST seller validation fee applies). The CNPR registry is maintained by Link Market Services-www.linkmarketservices.com.au

     

    Q. When will CNPR be finally wound up?

     

    A. While the wind up process has started, due to the complexities associated with the CNPR Group and the many and varied legacy issues, the winding up may take up to three years to complete.

     

    Q. How do I access historical information with respect to my securities?

     

    A. Holder details, transaction & distribution history and investor forms will remain available through Link’s online investor centre. You will need your SRN to log on.

     

    Information on CNPR and the restructure can be accessed via News and Publications on this website.

     

    Q. What are the tax implications of the delisting?

     

    A. The delisting will not of itself have any tax implications. Each of the stapled entities, CNPR Limited and CNPR Trust (collectively, CNPR) will be wound up at a future point in time. At that point, CNPR securities will be fully redeemed or cancelled for nil consideration. To the extent that you as a CNPR securityholder have a remaining cost base in your CNPR securities, you will make a capital loss at that point in time.

     

    You can also refer to the Tax Guides as provided on the CNPR website.

     

    Taxation treatment of investments can be complex. If you have any doubt about your tax position, we recommend that you seek professional taxation advice from your accountant or taxation adviser. Any comments we make should not be relied upon as taxation advice.

     

    Q. Will you keep us informed as to the status of the wind up process?

     

    A. We may provide circulars to securityholders periodically. You should also check the CNPR website from time to time for any notices providing updates on the status of the wind down process.
