INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

 

This Amendment No. 5 (“Amendment No. 5”) 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. 5 by reference to all of the applicable items in the Schedule TO. This Amendment No. 5 is being filed to amend and supplement Items 1 through 11 and Item 12 as reflected below. Except as otherwise set forth in this Amendment No. 5, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged.

 

Items 1 through 11.

 

The Offer to Purchase and Items 1 through 11 of the Schedule TO, to the extent such items incorporate by reference the information contained in the Offer to Purchase, are hereby amended and supplemented by:

 

Item 11 of the Schedule TO is amended to delete the last six paragraphs and to add the following paragraphs:

 

“The Offers expired at 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2021.

 

The ADS Receiving Agent for the U.S. Offer and the Series B Receiving Agent for the Offers have advised the Offerors that as of 8:00 a.m., New York City time on the Expiration Date, a total of 1,579,317 ADSs, representing 12,634,536 Series B Shares, and 90,217,248 Series B Shares, were validly tendered and not withdrawn.

 

Because the purchase of all Securities tendered in the Offers would cause the Offerors to purchase an aggregate amount of Series B Shares, including Series B Shares represented by ADSs, that would exceed the total number of Series B Shares, including Series B Shares represented by ADSs, that the Offerors have offered to purchase pursuant to the Offers, the Offerors have accepted and will purchase 923,703 ADSs, representing 7,389,624 Series B Shares, and 52,765,577 Series B Shares, based on a proration factor of approximately 58.49%. Any tendered Securities that have not been accepted for purchase will be returned or credited without expense to the holder’s account.

 

The offer prices payable by Aerodrome will be Ps.137 per Series B Share and Ps.1,096 per ADS, for a total of approximately Ps.8,241 million. The offer price for Series B Shares accepted in the Offers will be settled in Mexican pesos and will be paid through Indeval, the Mexican securities clearing system, and participants in Indeval. The offer price for ADSs accepted in the U.S. Offer will be paid in U.S. dollars and will be paid through the ADS Receiving Agent, in U.S. dollars, based on the U.S. dollar / Mexican peso spot market rate available to the ADS Receiving Agent on the Payment Date.

 

In accordance with the terms of the Offers, payment for Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Offers is expected to occur on July 9, 2021. Upon the settlement of the Offers, taking into account the Series B Shares currently owned by SETA, the Offerors will own, directly or indirectly, 30.1% of OMA’s outstanding capital stock.

 

All conditions described in the U.S. Offer to Purchase that were to be satisfied or waived on or prior to the Expiration Date, were satisfied or waived on or prior to the Expiration Date.

 

The full text of the press release issued by the Offerors announcing the completion of the U.S. Offer is attached hereto as Exhibit (a)(5)(iv) and is incorporated herein by reference.”

Exhibit (a)(5)(iv)

 

Aerodrome and Affiliates Announce Final Results of Their Previously Announced Tender Offers for Series B Shares of Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V.

 

Mexico City, July 6, 2021 – Aerodrome Infrastructure S.à r.l. (“Aerodrome”), along with its affiliates Servicios de Tecnología Aeroportuaria, S.A. de C.V. (“SETA”), 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”), Fintech Holdings Inc. (“FH”), and David Martínez (“Mr. Martínez” and, together with Aerodrome, SETA, Bagual, Grenadier, Pequod, Harpoon, Expanse and FH, the “Offerors”), announced today the final results of their previously announced cash tender offer in the U.S. (the “U.S. Offer”) for up to 60,155,201 (1) outstanding Series B ordinary shares, without par value (the “Series B Shares”) of Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, S.A.B. de C.V. (“OMA”), a publicly traded corporation organized under the laws of Mexico, held by U.S. persons, and (2) Series B Shares represented by outstanding American depositary shares (whether held or not by U.S. persons) (each representing eight Series B Shares) (the “ADSs” and, together with the Series B Shares, the “Securities”). The U.S. Offer was 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,” and together with the U.S. Offer, the “Offers”).

 

The Offers expired at 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on June 30, 2021 (the “Expiration Date”).

 

American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the ADS receiving agent for the U.S. Offer, and J.P. Morgan Casa de Bolsa, S.A. de C.V., J.P. Morgan Grupo Financiero, the Series B Shares receiving agent for the Offers, have advised the Offerors that as of 8:00 a.m., New York City time on the Expiration Date, a total of 1,579,317 ADSs, representing 12,634,536 Series B Shares, and 90,217,248 Series B Shares, were validly tendered and not withdrawn.

 

Because the purchase of all Securities tendered in the Offers would cause the Offerors to purchase an aggregate amount of Series B Shares, including Series B Shares represented by ADSs, that would exceed the total number of Series B Shares, including Series B Shares represented by ADSs, that the Offerors have offered to purchase pursuant to the Offers, the Offerors have accepted and will purchase 923,703 ADSs, representing 7,389,624 Series B Shares, and 52,765,577 Series B Shares, based on a proration factor of approximately 58.49%. Any tendered Securities that have not been accepted for purchase will be returned or credited without expense to the holder’s account.

 

The offer prices payable by Aerodrome will be Ps.137 per Series B Share and Ps.1,096 per ADS, for a total of approximately Ps.8,241 million. The offer price for Series B Shares accepted in the Offers will be settled in Mexican pesos and will be paid through S.D. Indeval Institución para el Depósito de Valores, S.A. de C.V. (“Indeval”), the Mexican securities clearing system, and participants in Indeval. The offer price for ADSs accepted in the U.S. Offer will be paid in U.S. dollars and will be paid to American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, as ADS receiving agent, in U.S. dollars, based on the U.S. dollar / Mexican peso spot market rate available to the ADS receiving agent on the Payment Date.

 

In accordance with the terms of the Offers, payment for Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase in the Offers is expected to occur on July 9, 2021 (the “Payment Date”). Upon the settlement of the Offers, taking into account the Series B Shares currently owned by SETA, the Offerors will own, directly or indirectly, 30.1% of OMA’s outstanding capital stock.

 

All conditions described in the U.S. Offer to Purchase that were to be satisfied or waived on or prior to the Expiration Date, were satisfied or waived on or prior to the Expiration Date.

 

The U.S. Offer was made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the U.S. offer to purchase, dated May 24, 2021 (as amended and restated, the “U.S. Offer to Purchase”), and the related ADS letter of transmittal, the Series B acceptance letter and related documents filed by the Offerors with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “U.S. Tender Offer Materials”).
