Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

Landco owns a 2685 hectare vineyard property in the Waihopai Valley and more than 31,000ha of farmland in Marlborough and Canterbury. Winegrowers of Ara is a Landco subsidiary company.

The National Business Review (NBR) reported receiver McGrath Nicol Kerryn Downey saying it would not affect the sale process, appearing to confirm a recent NBR article suggesting that the Todd family was purchasing Mr Olliver's share of the giant property development company.

My job is to evaluate the assets and realise the value of those assets

McGrath Nicol was appointed as receiver last week by Landsborough Finance, a private finance company based in Christchurch.

Mr Downey said Pheonix, which has a 50.5 percent stake in Landco, owed Landsborough $11 million.
