This paper describes and analyses the resource constrained situation of a reformed public enterprise, the Fiji Hardwood Corporation Limited, given the mistrust between the various entities. The paper uses the Resource Dependence theory to explain and analyse the performance of this company unitl 2011. It concludes that the landowners on whose land the lucrative resource of mahogany is planted have been wary of benefits to them from the processing of this resource. This generated significant mistrust thereby affecting the company's performance. The paper highlights the significant role which resource providers play in performance of enterprises which rely on these resources.
