Item 1.  Security and Issuer

 

This Amendment No. 11 (the “Eleventh Amendment”) amends the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on November 1, 2007 (the “Schedule 13D”), as subsequently amended, by David Martínez, Fintech Holdings Inc. (“FH”), Bagual S.à r.l. (“Bagual”), Grenadier S.à r.l. (“Grenadier”), Pequod S.à r.l. (“Pequod”), Harpoon S.à r.l. (“Harpoon”), Expanse S.à r.l. (“Expanse”), Servicios de Tecnologia Aeroportuaria, S.A. de C.V. (“SETA”) (each a “Reporting Person” and together the “Reporting Persons”), with respect to the Series B Shares of Common Stock (“Series B Shares”) of Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V. (the “Issuer”). Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Amendment have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D, as amended.

 

Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 is amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

On December 22, 2020, the Reporting Persons filed a pre-commencement communication under cover of Schedule TO, announcing a possible U.S. tender offer by the Reporting Persons for at least 19,505,578 Series B Shares of the Issuer (or 5% of the aggregate outstanding shares of the Issuer) and up to 97,527,889 Series B Shares (or 25% of the outstanding shares of the Issuer).

 

On May 24, 2021, the Reporting Persons and Aerodrome Infrastructure S.à r.l., a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bagual, Grenadier, Pequod, Harpoon and Expanse (“Aerodrome”, together with the Reporting Persons, the “Offerors”), filed a Schedule TO with the SEC, which included an Offer to Purchase, and commenced a tender offer pursuant to Rule 14d-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) to purchase up to 97,527,888 Series B Shares held by U.S. Persons and Series B Shares represented by outstanding American Depositary Shares (whether held or not by U.S. Persons and each representing eight Series B Shares) (the “U.S. Offer”), considering any Series B Shares purchased in the Mexican Offer (as defined below).  The price for the U.S. Offer is Ps.137 per Series B Share and Ps.1,096 per ADS.  The U.S. Offer is being made in conjunction with an offer by Aerodrome in Mexico directed to holders of Series B Shares, but not holders of ADSs (the “Mexican Offer”).

 

Except as disclosed in this Item 4, the Offerors have no plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the actions or transactions described in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of the instructions to this Schedule. The Offerors may in the future acquire Series B Shares or other securities of the Issuer from the Issuer, in the open market, in privately-negotiated purchases or otherwise and may also, depending on then-current circumstances, dispose of all or a portion of the Series B Shares or the Series BB shares owned by the Offerors in one or more transactions and may consider and explore one or more corporate transactions involving the Issuer. The Offerors reserve the right to formulate plans or proposals regarding the Issuer or any of its securities and to carry out any of the actions or transactions described in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of the instructions to this Schedule, to the extent deemed advisable by the Offerors.  The Offerors continuously analyze investment opportunities and adjust their allocations of capital, which results in many of the considered transactions not proceeding beyond the evaluation stage.

 

This Eleventh Amendment is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell any Series B Shares.  Any solicitation or offer will only be made through separate materials filed with the SEC.  The Offerors undertake no obligation to make additional disclosures in connection with the matters described herein except to the extent required by law.  The board of directors of the Issuer is required to file a solicitation/recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the U.S. Offer.  THE TENDER OFFER STATEMENT (INCLUDING THE OFFER TO PURCHASE, RELATED LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND OTHER OFFER DOCUMENTS) AND THE SOLICITATION/ RECOMMENDATION STATEMENT, AS WELL AS ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS TO THESE DOCUMENTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE U.S. OFFER, CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT SHOULD BE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ANY DECISION IS MADE WITH RESPECT TO SUCH OFFER.  The U.S. Offer materials (and all other offer documents filed with the SEC) are available at no charge on the SEC’s website: www.sec.gov.

Item 7 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following exhibits:
