Item 1. Security and Issuer

 

This Amendment No. 13 (the “Thirteenth 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.

(“SETA”), 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.

 

This Amendment is being filed to report the increase in percentage of shares owned by the Reporting Persons (as defined below) pursuant to a tender offer completed on July 9, 2021. As a result of the tender offer, the Reporting Persons’ percentage of beneficial ownership in the Issuer’s outstanding capital stock increased to 30.1%(25).

 

Item 2. Identity and Background

 

Item 2 is amended to add the following paragraphs:

 

David Martinez, 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”) and Aerodrome Infrastructure S.à r.l. (“Aerodrome”) (each a “Reporting Person” and together the “Reporting Persons”) are filing this Schedule 13D.

 

Aerodrome

 

The purpose of Aerodrome is to hold investments by FH. The registered office of Aerodrome is located at 8, rue de la Grève, L-1643 Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The telephone number at which Aerodrome’s principal executive offices can be reached is +352 28 26 39 10. Aerodrome, which was incorporated on January 14, 2021, is a private limited liability company (société à responsabilité limitée) organized under the laws of Luxembourg. Aerodrome is beneficially owned by Bagual, Grenadier, Pequod, Harpoon, Expanse, FH and Mr. Martínez.

 

Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction

 

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

 

Tender Offer

 

On May 24, 2021, the Reporting Persons filed a Schedule TO with the SEC (the “Schedule TO”), 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, “ADSs”) (the “U.S. Offer”), considering any Series B Shares purchased in the Mexican Offer (as defined below).  The price for the U.S. Offer was Ps.137 per Series B Share and Ps.1,096 per ADS.  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”).

 

On June 16, 2021, the Reporting Persons amended the Schedule TO previously filed with the SEC in connection with the U.S. Offer, to, among other things, reduce the aggregate amount of Series B Shares, including Series B Shares represented by ADSs, that the Reporting Persons offered to purchase in the Offers from 97,527,888 outstanding Series B Shares to 60,155,201 Series B Shares.

 

On July 6, 2021, the Reporting Persons amended the Schedule TO previously filed with the SEC in connection with the U.S. Offer announcing the final results of the Offers. Because the Offers were oversubscribed, the Reporting Persons accepted Securities on a prorated basis using a proration factor of approximately 58.49%. As a result, the Reporting Persons announced that they were

 


(25)  Percentage calculated based on 60,155,201 Series B Shares (including Series B Shares represented by ADSs) owned by Aerodrome, 7,516,377 Series B Shares owned by SETA and 49,766,000 Series BB shares owned by SETA, which it is entitled to convert into Series B Shares solely upon their disposition to a third party.

accepting for purchase 923,703 ADSs, representing 7,389,624 Series B Shares, and 52,765,577 Series B Shares, for a total of 60,155,201 Series B Shares.

 

On July 9, 2021, the Offers settled. The offer prices paid by the Reporting Persons were Ps.137 per Series B Share and US$55.09 per ADS (based on the spot market rate for Ps.19.8957 per US$1.00 available to the ADS receiving agent on the settlement date), for a total of approximately Ps.8,241 million.

 

Except as disclosed in this Item 4, the Reporting Persons 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 Reporting Persons 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 Reporting Persons in one or more transactions and may consider and explore one or more corporate transactions involving the Issuer. The Reporting Persons 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 Reporting Persons.  The Reporting Persons continuously analyze investment opportunities and adjust their allocations of capital, which results in many of the considered transactions not proceeding beyond the evaluation stage.

 

Loan Facility

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”).

Complete terms and conditions of the U.S. Offer are set forth in the U.S. Offer to Purchase and the other U.S. Tender Offer Materials.
