IFM Investors confirms the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund (IFM GIF) and its associates have secured a combined relevant interest and economic interest of 14.96% percent in Atlas Arteria (ALX), making it a substantial shareholder in the company.
IFM GIF regularly invests in companies that align with its investment priorities and have the potential to deliver returns to its investors and beneficiaries, which include millions of superannuation and pension fund members in Australia and globally.
IFM GIF has made no formal control proposal to the ALX Board and intends to initially request from ALX access to certain limited company information, before deciding whether to submit a non- binding indicative proposal to ALX to acquire all the ALX securities
it does not already own.
There is no certainty of progressing to a binding proposal.
As a substantial shareholder, IFM GIF looks forward to engaging collaboratively with the Board and executives in the interests of all stakeholders.
