Published

Press release states, “CIC participation in Finance Facility CIC has committed to the Facility on the same terms as those announced to the market on 19 May 2009. To facilitate CIC’s participation, Macquarie Bank and its associates have sold down A$15m of their exposure which combined with CIC’s commitment of A$200m takes the final Facility size to A$485m. The Facility will not be increased in size beyond A$485m. Goodman and CIC have agreed to work in good faith towards a broader relationship between the two groups.

Greg Goodman, Group CEO of Goodman said: ‘We are very pleased with the support shown to the Group by CIC and are excited about the opportunity to partner with an institution of this calibre as we seek to grow our business globally. We view a relationship with CIC as highly strategic and believe that together we can capitalise on the significant opportunities created by current market conditions.’

The key terms of the A$485 million Facility are as follows:

9 month term expiring in February 2010, extendable for a further 15 months; and
Secured facility with covenants comparable to those in Goodman’s existing common
terms deed poll.

In conjunction with the Facility, additional Options will be granted over 255.3 million Goodman stapled securities with a two year term (Options). These additional Options are to be issued with a strike price of $0.40 and the lenders will share the two tranches of Options on a pro rata basis.

Approval from Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board will be sought in respect of CIC’s participation in the transaction. The issue of options (apart from the first 120 million Options which were issued within placement capacity) will also be subject to security holder approval. In the event that the Options are not approved by security holders, the lenders under the Facility will be entitled to a cash amount from Goodman equivalent to the value of the Options as if they had been granted and were exercised. Further details of this grant will be distributed as part of a notice of extraordinary general meeting.”
