14 February 2022

Irongate Group has entered into a non-disclosure agreement with the Charter Hall and PGGM providing it with a period of exclusivity of approximately 6 weeks in order to convert its indicative proposal to a binding proposal.

Irongate said today that they had reached the decision following further discussions with Charter Hall.

The current indicative proposal from the Charter Hall Partnership is to acquire all of the stapled securities in IAP for A$1.90 cash per IAP stapled security plus IAP securityholders will be entitled to retain the distribution for the period ending 31 March 2022 (up to 4.67 cents per IAP stapled security).

Subject to negotiating a scheme implementation agreement on terms acceptable to IAP, no superior proposal emerging and an independent expert concluding that the Indicative Proposal is fair and reasonable to, and therefore in the best interests of, securityholders, the IAP Board intends to unanimously recommend that securityholders vote in favour of the Indicative Proposal.
