-Based on its characteristics, the contract will be concluded in initial public offering.

Concurrent with contract conclusion, a draft contract will be signed and the seller will transfer the commodity deliverance to the commodity supplier and the supplier is committed to deliver it based on the draft.

A certificate of depositary receipt (CDR) is a security that entitles the ownership of a specified amount of a commodity and is guaranteed by a warrant issued by listed warehouses by IME. It is worth noting that in implementation of guaranteed price plan, after depositing the commodity by farmer or supplier in a warehouse listed by IME, a certificate of depositary receipt (CDR) will be issued by a warehouse keeper. Then the farmer or supplier holding the CDR can trade his/her commodity in the IME through authorized brokerages.
