Prior to the bondholders voting to sell the bond on October 2013, all 285 bondholders received the following interest payments:

Principal: $50,000 - 11.0%

Principal: $27,500 - 10.0%

Principal: $16,500 - 8.34%

Such payments matched all advertising material and contractual obligations.



In 2013 EcoPlanet Bamboo received a purchase offer for the Rio Kama plantation from the Eco Resources Fund. Bondholders were provided the terms of this offer and requested to vote. Sale of the plantation and the associated bamboo bond required a 75% majority.

  • Approval of sale: 282 votes - 98.9%

  • Disapproval of sale: 1 vote - 0.4%

  • No reply: 2 votes or 0.7%

In 2016 Chris Lang of REDD Monitor published a series of poorly researched and misinformed articles on EcoPlanet Bamboo UK, the Bamboo Bond and the Eco Resources Fund.
