Shareholder Wool Shipper Loyalty Reward Program (SWSLRP)
The Board of Directors have approved a loyalty reward program proposed by management for CCWG shareholders that are also wool shippers. The purpose of this loyalty reward program is to recognize shareholder / wool shippers with a rebate on their wool clip.
Following each year-end and depending on the overall profit from all company business, the Board of Directors will allocate a percentage of the year’s profit to a reserve account for (SWSLRP). The rebate will then be paid to shareholder / wool shippers in the form of a CCWG profit sharing coupon which can be redeemed for purchasing products at any CCWG branch location. The profit sharing coupon will have an expiry date of 3 years from date of issue, will not have a cash surrender value and will not be transferable. This will be an added bonus for shareholder / wool shippers in addition to the standard shareholder benefits such as the dividend, discount plan etc. The calculation for the rebate will be based on the net weight of the current fiscal years wool clip at a pre-determined rate in cents per pound.
The coupon must be presented at time of redemption.
Wool Preparation Incentive Rebate (WPIR)
1) Currently a bonus 2-8¢ per pound is paid on the total net weight of the wool clip (all grades including offsorts)
2) Eligibility is based on bright high yielding wool clips that have been well prepared and skirted with offsorts separated from main fleeces by a newspaper divider or packaged in a separate bag.
3) Shipped in well packed sacks.
Explanation: The objective of the wool preparation incentive is to reward producers with a bonus for those that have taken the time and effort to present a clean, well prepared and packaged wool clip for grading and marketing. At the time of wool grading, our wool grader assesses if the producers clip qualifies for the bonus, depending on the quality and presentation of the wool clip. Offsorts are defined as the bellies, stained wool and tags.
