The offer is to be in two parts. Under the first part, Infratil is offering up to $25 million of Infrastructure Bonds to all investors in New Zealand (with the option to accept up to $50 million oversubscriptions at Infratil's discretion) ("General Offer").

Infratil further advises holders of 2012 Bonds that any 2012 Bonds which are not exchanged under the Exchange Offer will be redeemed for cash on 15 November 2012 and not converted into shares in Infratil Limited.
There is to be a public pool with applications processed on a first come first served basis until Infratil chooses to close the issue or the issue is filled. Accordingly, investors are encouraged to submit applications as soon as possible.
