OMA informs on Aerodrome’s
Mexico City, Mexico, June 16, 2021— Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V., (“OMA” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: OMAB; BMV: OMA), as a follow-up to the press release dated May 24, 2021, informs that, in relation to the simultaneous tender offer in Mexico and in the United States of America, which was previously announced and is being made by Aerodrome Infrastructure, S.à.r.l. (“Aerodrome”), a direct subsidiary of Fintech Holdings Inc. (“Fintech”), for up to 97,527,888 (Ninety-seven million, five hundred twenty-seven thousand, eight hundred eighty-eight) Series B ordinary shares, nominative and without par value, of OMA’s fully subscribed and paid-in capital stock, at a price per share of Ps.137.00 (the “Offer”), Aerodrome has informed OMA that it does not expect to be able to obtain sufficient resources from the financing in order to pay the consideration of the Offer. In that sense, Aerodrome anticipates that the condition to consummate a financing transaction will not be satisfied on or prior to June 22, 2021 at 7:00 a.m., Mexico City time, the original expiration date of the Offer (the “Original Expiration Date”).
As a result of the foregoing, Aerodrome has announced its intention to make certain modifications to the terms of the Offer, as described below:
|-||To reduce the number of Series B shares, nominative and without par value, of OMA’s fully subscribed and paid-in capital stock offered, from 97,527,888 to 60,155,201 shares (the “Shares”). In the event that Aerodrome acquires the aggregate number of Shares, Fintech’s indirect holding upon termination of the Offer would be of 30.1% of OMA’s fully subscribed and paid-in capital stock;|
|-||To withdraw any condition to obtain financing, which has to be satisfied on or prior to the Expiration Date of the Offer. Aerodrome anticipates financing the total consideration of the Offer with its own resources, as well as with resources from intercompany loans obtained from related parties of Aerodrome;|
|-||To withdraw any condition regarding a minimum amount of shares being tendered; and|
|-||As a result of the foregoing, Aerodrome:|
|o||Will extend the Original Expiration Date of the Offers to June 30, 2021, at 7:00 a.m., Mexico City time (the “New Expiration Date”), in order to extend the Offer by a period of 6 (six) additional business days from the Original Expiration Date and until the New Expiration Date, as well as to allow for the adequate communication of the afore- mentioned modifications to shareholders and investors; and|
|o||Will extend the period for shareholders to exercise their right to decline their acceptance until the New Expiration Date. Shares that have been previously offered and that will be offered|
before the New Expiration Date may be withdrawn at any time on or prior to the New Expiration Date.
As a result of said modifications, Aerodrome expects to be able to settle the Offer and consummate payment of the offered and accepted shares 6 (six) business days after the New Expiration Date. Such period does not represent a change with respect to the original terms of the Offer.
The other terms and conditions of the Offer, which have been previously announced by Aerodrome in the tender offer, remain unchanged.
Additionally, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company LLC, the transfer agent of the ADSs and J.P. Morgan Casa de Bolsa, S.A. de C.V., J.P. Morgan Grupo Financiero, the intermediary of the Offer in Mexico, have informed that as of June 16, 2021, at 4:00 p.m., Mexico City time, a total of 52,930 shares and 273,479 ADSs (which represent 2,187,832 shares) have been tendered through the Offers.
The aforementioned modifications have been informed by Aerodrome through an informative notice (Aviso con Fines Informativos) which can be reviewed on the webpage of the Mexican Stock Exchange (www.bmv.com.mx) and on the webpage of the Mexican National Banking and Securities Commission, through the STIV process of the Offer
