This investment opportunity is not an offer of financial products to retail investors for the purposes of the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (“FMCA”). There is no product disclosure statement available. Accordingly, there are not the same disclosures or levels of protection available as under a retail, regulated offer. 

Any offer will only be made by way of an accepted Note Application Form (“Application”) provided that Cooks Global Foods Limited (“CGF”) is satisfied at its sole discretion that the proposed investor: 

- is a wholesale investor within the meaning of the FMCA; or

- otherwise comes within the requirements of Schedule One to the FMCA so that an offer of financial products to them shall not constitute a regulated offer under the FMCA. 

A term of the Application will be that wholesale investor safe harbour certificates (or other applicable certificates) will be required so that CGF can verify an investor’s status.
