INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

 

This Amendment No. 3 (“Amendment No. 3”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO (together with any subsequent amendments, supplements, restatements and exhibits thereto, the “Schedule TO”) originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 24, 2021 by Aerodrome Infrastructure S.à r.l. (“Aerodrome”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg, an affiliate of Servicios de Tecnología Aeroportuaria, S.A. de C.V. (“SETA”), a Mexican corporation, and beneficially owned by Bagual S.à.r.l. (“Bagual”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg, Grenadier S.à.r.l. (“Grenadier”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg, Pequod S.à.r.l. (“Pequod”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg, Harpoon S.à.r.l. (“Harpoon”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg, Expanse S.à.r.l. (“Expanse”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of Luxembourg, Fintech Holdings Inc. (“FH”), a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware and David Martínez (“Mr. Martínez” and, together with Aerodrome, SETA, Bagual, Grenadier, Pequod, Harpoon, Expanse and FH, the “Offerors”). The Schedule TO relates to the offer by the Offerors to purchase up to 60,155,201 shares of outstanding Series B ordinary shares held by U.S. Persons (the “Series B Shares”) of Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V. 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, “ADSs” and, together with the Series B Shares, the “Securities”).

 

The information in the Schedule TO is incorporated in this Amendment No. 3 by reference to all of the applicable items in the Schedule TO. This Amendment No. 3 is being filed to amend and supplement Item 7 as reflected below. Except as otherwise set forth in this Amendment No. 3, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged.

 

Item 7. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

Item 7 of the Schedule TO is hereby amended and restated as follows:

 

(a) and (d) - The information set forth under “THE TENDER OFFER — Section 5. Source and Amount of Funds; Certain Requirements Regarding Offer Price” of the U.S. Offer to Purchase is incorporated herein by reference.

 

(b) - Not applicable.

 

The U.S. Offer to Purchase is amended as follows:

 

The response to the question “Do you have the financial resources to pay for the Securities?” in the SUMMARY TERM SHEET” section is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:

 

“The Offerors expect to fund the aggregate cash consideration to be paid in the Offers with cash on hand and the proceeds of a loan from an entity managed by the same investment advisor as the Offerors. For a summary of such loan, including the identity of the parties, the term, any collateral, the stated and effective interest rates, and other material terms and conditions of the loans, see THE TENDER OFFER — Section 5. Source and Amount of Funds; Certain Requirements Regarding Offer Price — Funds.

 

The section THE TENDER OFFER — Section 5. Source and Amount of Funds; Certain Requirements Regarding Offer Price — Funds is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:

 

The total amount of funds that we must provide to purchase up to 60,155,201 Series B Shares, which is the maximum number of Series B Shares (including Series B Shares represented by ADSs) subject to the Offers, before fees and expenses, is estimated to be Ps.8,241,262,537 based on an Offer Price of Ps.137 per Series B Share.

 

We plan to acquire the tendered Securities, and to cover any related fees and expenses in connection with the Offers using cash on hand and the proceeds of a loan from an entity managed by the same investment advisor as the Offerors.

 

Loan Facility

 

On or prior to the settlement date of the Offers, Aerodrome will enter into a loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Fintech Investments Ltd. (“FIL”), pursuant to which FIL will provide an unsecured term loan in an aggregate amount of up to the equivalent in U.S. dollars of Ps.7,005,074,000, or 85% of the total amount of funds required to settle the Offers (the “Loan Facility”). The Loan Facility will mature on December 31, 2031, and all outstanding amounts under the Loan Facility will become due and payable on the maturity date. The Loan Facility may be repaid, in whole or in part, at any time without premium or penalty, after giving FIL at least five business days’ notice. The Loan Facility will bear interest at a rate of 6.0% per annum. Interest on the Loan Facility will be payable semi-annually on June 30 and December 31 of each year.

 

 

 

 

The Loan Agreement will be governed by Luxembourg law and any dispute arising out of or in connection with the Loan Agreement will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the City of Luxembourg.

 

Aerodrome intends to repay the Loan Facility with the proceeds of dividends or other distributions paid on the Securities. Aerodrome may also explore opportunities from time to time to refinance the Loan Facility with the proceeds of a bank loan secured by Securities owned by it and its affiliates.

 

The information disclosed in this paragraph does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Loan Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit (b) to the Schedule TO filed with the SEC and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety. Holders of Securities are urged to read the Loan Agreement for a more complete description of the provisions contained therein.

 

Cash on Hand

 

The Offerors intend to fund up to Ps.1,236,188,537, or 15% of the total amount of funds required to settle the Offers, as well as any related fees and expenses in connection with the Offers, with available cash on hand. Such amount will be contributed by FH to Bagual, Grenadier, Pequod, Harpoon and Expanse, which will in turn contribute such amount to Aerodrome.
