Global Infrastructure Partners Key Developments
Macquarie Infrastructure Quits Melbourne Auction
Mar 18 16
Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets Pty Limited intend to opt out of the bidding for Port of Melbourne Corporation. Macquarie is believed to have abandoned its plans to compete for the $6 billion Port of Melbourne. The sale process is understood to be kicking off despite challenges at state government level securing legislative approval to sell the prized infrastructure asset. However, advisers say that they are yet to secure flyer documents for the Melbourne port. Sources told Dataroom that Macquarie was no longer competing. As a result three or four groups set to fight it out to buy the port. One consortium is Hastings Funds Management Limited, Wren House Infrastructure Management Limited and Alberta Investment Management Corporation, advised by Royal Bank of Canada and UBS. Other contenders include IFM Investors Pty Ltd advised by JPMorgan and QIC Limited, Global Infrastructure Partners and Borealis AG. There have also been some unconfirmed reports that Colonial could team up with Havenbedrijf Rotterdam N.V. for the contest.
Suitors Eyeing Glencore's NSW Rail Haulage Operations
Mar 17 16
Global Infrastructure Partners, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, CIC Capital Corporation, GIC Pte. Ltd., and British Columbia Investment Management Corporation are likely to bid for NSW rail haulage operations of Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN). Glencore expects to raise about $1 billion from the sale of its Hunter Valley coal haulage business, known as GRail, to raise cash to reduce debt. Aurizon Holdings Limited (ASX:AZJ) has already been contacted by Glencore's bankers in order to assess its interest in a potential sale of rail haulage operations. It is expected to analyze the business. "We always look at opportunities," Aurizon's spokesperson said.
Asciano Announces Discussions With Brookfield Consortium And Qube Consortium In Respect Of Potential Transaction
Feb 23 16
Asciano Limited (ASX:AIO) says it has held preliminary discussions with its rival suitors to jointly take over the company in an all-cash, AUD 9.05 billion deal. Asciano said under the revised plan, the Qube Holdings Limited (ASX:QUB) -led consortium, along with Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. (NYSE:BIP), will make an all cash offer for the company at AUD 9.28 a share. Asciano said its board considers the potential deal will likely be attractive to its shareholders, but said a number of steps would need to occur before any binding proposal could be reached. "The Asciano board consider that the AUD 9.28 per Asciano share cash consideration associated with the potential transaction is likely to be attractive to Asciano shareholders," the company said in a statement on February 23, 2016. "However, Asciano notes that the discussions are preliminary and a number of steps would need to occur prior to any binding proposal eventuating." Under the combined bid now being considered, Qube would acquire Asciano's Patrick container terminals in a 50-50 joint venture with Brookfield and its consortium partners for AUD 2.9 billion. Qube's consortium partners - Global Infrastructure Partners, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and China Investment Corporation - would team up with some of Brookfield's consortium to buy Asciano's Pacific National rail haulage business via a scheme of arrangement. Brookfield, which already owns a rail track business in Western Australia, would not have a stake in Pacific National. Brookfield and some of its consortium plan to buy Asciano's bulk and automotive ports services businesses, including a 50% interest in Australian Amalgamated Terminals (AAT.) Qube would have an option to later acquire the 50% interest in AAT if it receives ACCC clearance. Qube and Brookfield said they would undertake negotiations as expeditiously as possible to determine whether a formal proposal could be developed. "The discussions remain preliminary, indicative and non-binding and there is no agreement, arrangement or understanding between the parties at this stage," Qube said. Goldman Sachs acted as financial advisor for Asciano.
