Growthpoint Properties Resubmits Non-Binding Proposal To Acquire GPT Metro Office Fund

Growthpoint Properties Australia Limited has resubmitted a proposal for GPT Metro Office Fund (ASX:GMF). Growthpoint Properties Australia notes GPT Metro's announcement regarding the revaluation of the GPT Metro property portfolio, following the receipt of an unsolicited, confidential, conditional and non-binding proposal to acquire all the units in GPT Metro. On March 3, 2016 Growthpoint Properties Australia submitted a proposal to the Independent Directors to acquire 100% of the outstanding units of GPT Metro via a trust scheme. The proposal comprised consideration of 0.3736 Growthpoint securities and $1.15 cash per GMF Unit which, based on Growthpoint’s one-month VWAP1 of $3.08 per security up to and including March 3, 2016, implied consideration of $2.30 per GPT Metro unit. In response, on March 16, 2016, GPT Metro informed Growthpoint of its intention to undertake a revaluation of its entire property portfolio, the results of which were to be disclosed to ASX. Based on this information, on March 18, 2016, Growthpoint formally withdrew the Proposal. Based on assessment and Growthpoint’s ongoing belief that the Proposal offers a compelling value proposition for both Growthpoint and GMF security holders, Growthpoint has tre-submitted the Proposal to the Independent Directors of GPT Metro. This proposal has been made in the absence of any formal approach to GPT as owner of the RE and as a GMF unitholder. We would anticipate engagement at an appropriate time in the future with the expectation that GPT would follow the recommendations of the independent board committee. This Proposal is intended as an expression of interest and is not intended to constitute, and does not constitute, a legally binding offer. It represents an indicative, conditional, incomplete and non-binding proposal. Any legally binding obligations would be subject to, among other things, the execution of definitive transaction documentation. Growthpoint has engaged Goldman Sachs Australia Pty. Ltd. and Herbert Smith Freehills as its financial and legal advisors respectively.

Asciano Announces Discussions With Brookfield Consortium And Qube Consortium In Respect Of Potential Transaction

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.
