Goodman Group (Goodman or Group) confirms that all of the conditions for the Restructure of the Group, through the addition of the Hong Kong incorporated company Goodman Logistics (HK) Limited (HKCo) to the existing Goodman stapled structure, have now been satisfied or waived. The Restructure was approved by Securityholders at the Extraordinary General Meetings held on 30 March 2012.
Under the Restructure, Securityholders holding Securities on the Record Date will have an interest in HKCo shares distributed to them and stapled to their existing Stapled Securities on the Implementation Date in accordance with the timetable below. After the Restructure, Securityholders will have the same economic interest in the operations of Goodman (and same number of stapled securities), however they will hold that interest through a stapled security comprising an ordinary share in Goodman Limited, an ordinary unit in Goodman Industrial Trust and a CHESS Depository Interest (CDI) over an ordinary share in HKCo. The new stapled securities will trade on ASX under Goodman's existing ASX Code, GMG.
Further information regarding the Restructure, CDIs and the rights attaching to HKCo shares is contained in Goodman’s Notice of Meetings and Information Memorandum dated 22 February 2012 (a copy of which may be accessed at www.goodman.com/extraordinary_general_meetings).
