National Mail Lists on New Zealand Stock Exchange
National Mail New Zealand Limited today became the first company of the new millennium to list on the New Zealand Stock
National Mail Chairman, Richard Flower, said that it was appropriate that a company with such forward-looking ideas and
plans should lead the way into the 21st Century.
The listing follows the company's highly successful share offer, which closed on Friday (17 March) fully subscribed.
Mr Flower said that the popularity of the float demonstrated that, in the current business environment, the investment
community was looking for agile and flexible companies which bridged the old and new economies.
"Our operation is based around the convergence of technologies - combining cutting edge electronic systems with proven
traditional methodologies," Mr Flower said.
"We see enormous potential for growth in the business communications market and I am pleased to see our vision supported
by our new shareholders.
"Today is a very exciting day, not only for National Mail and everybody associated with it, but for all those looking
for business innovation and a good investment," Mr Flower said.
The company issued 11.2 million shares at $1.25 per share. From today, it will trade on the NZSE under the code "NML".
National Mail is a registered postal operator specialising in communications between businesses and their customers.
