Share Trading

The Acorn Agri and Food share trading platform is not regulated in the same manner as a licensed exchange in terms of the Financial Market Act, 19 of 2012. Despite not being a regulated exchange, Acorn Agri and Food ensures the integrity of the system, transactions and records through good corporate governance that includes the annual audit thereof by the internal auditors.

Any complaints regarding the share trading platform may be directed to the Group Company Secretary, Annmarie Steyn at email: annmarie@acorn.co.za or telephone: 028 214 3824 or Andre Uys, the Chief Executive Officer of Acorn Agri and Food at email: andre@acorn.co.za.

Acorn Agri and Food’s shares are traded over-the-counter as share transactions are negotiated directly and bilaterally between willing buyer and sellers of shares. Acorn Agri and Food will, through its Share Administration Desk, facilitate the identification of willing buyers and sellers and act as administrator to provide the parties with the required documentation to facilitate transactions and to update its securities register after the conclusion of transactions.

New shareholders and brokers are required to register with the Share Administration Desk before buying shares.   The following documentation must be completed and submitted:

    1. Registration form
    2. Share Administration agreement
    3. Fica documents
    4. Dividend withholding tax form (for companies and close corporations)
    5. The appointment of an authorised representative (for companies, close corporations and trusts)

Buyers and sellers of Acorn Agri and Food shares may contact the Share Administration Desk to publish the number of shares they intend buying or selling, and the required price on the  website.  Once a potential transaction has been identified, based on time and price priority, the Share Administration Desk will assist the buyer and seller to directly and bilaterally negotiate the transaction and will provide the parties with a pro forma sale agreement.

The Share Administration Desk will also provide the parties with a contract note reflecting the capital amount, relevant fees payable and the Security Transfer Tax, payable by the buyer. Unless the shares are ceded to Overberg Agri, the buyer pays the purchase price directly to the seller.

Buyers and sellers of shares may negotiate share sale transactions without involving the Share Administration Desk.

Provided both parties are properly registered, the Share Administration Desk will only transfer the relevant shares from seller to the buyer on its securities register upon receipt of the following:

    1. Share sale agreement, signed by both parties.
    2. Share transfer form, signed by the seller
    3. Confirmation that:
      1. The buyer and seller has paid the administration fee 0.5% of the value of the transaction or a minimum fee of R150.00 as indicated on the contract note;
      2. The buyer paid the Security Transfer Tax as indicated on the contract note;
      3. The buyer paid the purchase price to:
        1. Overberg Agri (if the shares are ceded to Overberg Agri) or
