 inpp reaches financial close on FIRST new zealand investmentS

 

9 June 2023

 

International Public Partnerships Limited, the listed infrastructure investment company ('INPP' or 'the Company'), has successfully reached financial close on its acquisition of five New Zealand availability revenue-based social infrastructure investments.

The signing of binding agreements was previously announced on 9 December 2022. Financial close was achieved following regulatory approval from New Zealand's Overseas Investment Office ('OIO').

The c.NZD 218 million (c.£108 million) portfolio provides the Company with 100% ownership of five New Zealand investments.  These investments further increase the Company's contribution to the provision of essential infrastructure whilst meeting the environmental and social commitments required of it pursuant to its categorisation as an Article 8 financial product under the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation ('SFDR').

Mike Gerrard, Chair of INPP, said: "These high-quality infrastructure assets represent INPP's expansion into the mature New Zealand market, diversifying our investment portfolio and complementing the Company's Australian activity. The five essential infrastructure investments are operational and generating stable, long-term, inflation-linked revenues from robust PPP contracts."

The investment has been funded using the recently extended revolving credit facility. Following the investment, the Company's £350 million revolving credit facility will be c.£125 million utilised (including c.£17 million already committed via letters of credit for near-term pipeline investments), leaving more than enough liquidity to meet its investment commitments which total c.£130m million across the offshore electricity transmission, transport, digital and social infrastructure sectors.

 

ENDS.
