Placement of Port of Tauranga Shares
Infratil Limited today placed 3,568,000 shares in Port of Tauranga at $5.95 per share to local institutions through ABN AMRO and to private clients of ABN AMRO Craigs.
Infratil acquired a substantial number of these shares in 1994 and the average cost price is approximately $1.70 per share.
The placement reduces Infratil's holding in Port of Tauranga from 24.7% to 19.99%.
Infratil has made the placement at this time because of the imminent introduction of the Takeovers Code. Post 1 July, Infratil sees greater strategic value in a shareholding of 19.99%, rather than 24.7%.
Infratil has no plans to sell its remaining shareholding.
