Auckland, 30 November 2012 – Fletcher Building has been advised that a company called Stock & Share Trading Company Pty Limited has made an unsolicited offer to some holders of the company’s shares.

The price being offered by Stock & Share Trading is $5.00 per share which is approximately 36% less than the price quoted on the NZSX this morning of around $7.80 per share.

In addition, while payment is promised within one month of Stock & Share Trading registering the shares, there is no obligation or requirement on Stock & Share Trading to register the shares within any period.
