All spelling of geographic and company names is as supplied by the Overseas Investment Office (OIO) unless otherwise it is clear from the context that the source is from elsewhere. Errors are those of the OIO. Information quoted, unless otherwise noted, comes from the Decision Sheets of the Office. Copies of the Decision Sheets can be seen on the Land Information New Zealand website.

N.B. From May 2021 onwards only one decision per month has been analysed. Instead a link to the OIO's website containing the decisions for each month has been provided. Murray Horton.
