Cobram Estate: revenue is expected to total $211 million for the year ended June 30 with $33.6 million in net profit, the prospectus said.


The company will need to undertake a major education campaign for new shareholders because of the unique characteristics of the olive growing industry, where trees have only one big crop every two years. The 2021 harvest, which ran from late April to June was one of the large crop years, which means next year will be a light crop.

The 2021 harvest amounted to 16.05 million litres, and was 7 per cent above initial projections.

and traded around and above $2.00 for most of Day 3 , before a sell off at closing time.


Funny about this; from a media piece earlier and leading up to the IPO

... after failing to score institutional support for a listing priced at $2 per share, Cobram Estate ... push[ed] ahead with a compliance listing,....
and here we have, presumably, institutions buying up at the price CBO and advisers thought was fair, but those selfservers were most likely hoping for a discounted IPO, say, around $1.80. One for the little guys!!
