Infratil announces that the offer of the above Series of unsecured unsubordinated Infrastructure Bonds is now open.
Infratil is offering up to $75 million of Infrastructure Bonds in aggregate across both the General and Exchange Offers (as described below) and across both Series (with the option to accept up to $75 million of oversubscriptions in aggregate at Infratil's discretion).
The offer will be made as an offer of debt securities of the same class as existing quoted debt securities pursuant to the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013. The notice required by the Financial Markets Conduct Regulations 2014 has been provided to NZX.
The key terms of the offer are contained in the Terms Sheet, a copy of which is attached.
The offer comprises a General Offer to all investors in New Zealand and an Exchange Offer under which holders of the IFT160 bonds that mature on 15 June 2017 have the opportunity (subject to availability) to exchange some or all of their maturing bonds for Infrastructure Bonds of the new Series.
Details on how to apply for the Infrastructure Bonds are set out in the Terms Sheet. The offer is now open, with the Exchange Offer closing on 12 June 2017 and the General Offer closing on 23 June 2017. In both instances Infratil may elect to close the offer earlier.
Interested investors, including holders of existing Infratil bonds that mature 15 June 2017, should contact their broker or one of the managers of the offer (outlined below) for more details.
