1. Who owns Z Energy?
Z Energy is 100% free floated on the NZX and ASX. What this means is that 100% of our issued share capital is held by institutional investors and shareholders and we have no large strategic shareholders holding a large stake in Z Energy.
2. Do Infratil and the NZ Super Fund still own the majority Z Energy?
No. Infratil and the NZ Super Fund funded the acquisition of the Shell assets in 2010 which went on to form the basis of Z Energy. Infratil and the NZ Super both sold their holdings in Z Energy through the IPO in 2013 and then in various investor placements after the IPO. Currently Infratil does not own any Z Energy shares and NZ Super Fund invests as a minority shareholder in Z like it does in any number of other publicly-listed NZ companies.

11. Does Z Energy offer a dividend reinvestment plan?

No. We believe in treating all shareholders equally and giving our shareholders the choice how they wish to spend their investment gains.

12. What is meant by an imputed dividend?

Imputation is a mechanism that a company can use to pass on credits for tax it has already paid on its profits rather than shareholders paying additional tax on the dividend. These imputation credits offset the amount of tax that the resident shareholders would otherwise be liable to pay on those dividends, so they aren’t taxed twice.

Please go to for more details on imputation credits.

13. How do I find out how much my Z Energy shares are worth?

On the Z Energy investor centre we have published several tools – like an historical price look-up tool – that might help you work out how much your shareholding is worth if you know how many shares you own and when you bought them. If you don’t know this or don’t have it to hand, give your broker a call.

20. How many petrol stations does Z operate?

Z Energy currently operates just under 200 service stations in NZ. This number goes up or down from time to time as we close a station to upgrade it or sell a station that no longer fits into our network plan. Under the Caltex brand we bulk supply fuel to approximately 139 service stations all owned and operated by small business owners from all over NZ. Again, this number goes up and down as these business owners decide their own investment priorities.
