Wool Stocktake : AWI Annual Report 2016-17
AWI shareholders at 30 June 2017 (Total: 23,463) AWI SHAREHOLDERS AWI has more than 23,000 shareholders who are Australian woolgrowers. The shareholders of AWI contribute to the wool levy. The shareholders are able to shape the decision-making process of the company via their access to information and right to vote at Annual General Meetings. AWI shareholders are entitled to one vote for every $100 of wool levy paid in the three financial years before any vote. A share in AWI is not tradeable and is of no capital value. Paying wool levies does not make the levy payer automatically a shareholder of AWI. Levy payers who are not already an AWI shareholder can contact the AWI share registry at Link Market Services on 1800 113 373 (free call) to enquire about becoming a shareholder. Wool is produced across a range of environments in Australia. AWI shareholders are therefore located across a broad area of the country, from the high rainfall areas, to the wheat/sheep zone, out to the drier pastoral zone.
