Genesis Share Offer: Consultation with Māori

Page updated 21 Jan 2014

In November 2013 the Minister of Finance held three hui, in Tuai, Hamilton and Whanganui, to consult with iwi regarding the Government's intention to offer up to 49% of the shares in Genesis Energy to the public, subject to market conditions. The Treasury has released the presentations given by the Minister at the hui, as well as summaries of the discussions at each hui.

Previous Consultations

In February 2012 the Government consulted with Māori on legislative changes it considered necessary to proceed with its policy of mixed ownership for four State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs): Genesis Power, Meridian Energy, Mighty River Power and Solid Energy New Zealand

On 3 September 2012 the Prime Minister announced that the Government would undertake targeted consultation with Māori on the Waitangi Tribunal's "shares plus" proposal before proceeding with the Mighty River Power initial public offering (IPO).
