Blackstone Real Estate and MRP Group Announce Commencement of an All-Cash Tender Offer for Terrafina

Business Wire 10-Jun-2024 9:45 AM

Only announced all-cash offer to date, providing substantial, immediate and certain value to Terrafina shareholders

Blackstone Real Estate and MRP Group, a developer, owner and operator of real estate in Mexico, today announced that a Mexican trust formed by their affiliates has commenced a tender offer for up to 100% of the outstanding real estate trust certificates of Terrafina (BMV:TERRA) at a purchase price of Ps.38.50 per certificate.

The all-cash tender offer represents a premium of 21% over the unaffected price per Terrafina certificate at the close of trading on December 4, 2023 and a 5% premium to Terrafina's closing share price on June 7, 2024.

As the only announced all-cash tender offer, this transaction would provide substantial and immediate value for Terrafina's shareholders and avoids the potential negative tax consequences associated with competing exchange offers. Additionally, this offer provides more certainty given the limited closing conditions. With a track-record of over 50 successful public company transactions, Blackstone Real Estate is well-positioned to execute this transaction.

The Mexican antitrust authority, the Comisión Federal de Competencia Económica (COFECE), has unconditionally approved the tender offer. The tender offer is not subject to any financing condition and is not contingent on additional board or shareholder approvals.

Terrafina certificates may be tendered at any time until 14:00 Mexico City time, on July 10, 2024, unless the expiration date is extended in accordance with the Offer to Purchase referred to below. The completion of the tender offer is conditioned upon, among other things, the acceptance by holders representing at least 50% plus one of the outstanding Terrafina certificates.

Complete terms and conditions of the tender offer are set forth in the Offer to Purchase filed with the Mexican securities commission, the Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV). Please see below for information on how to obtain the Offer to Purchase and the accompanying Letter of Acceptance, and for who to contact with any questions regarding the tender procedures.
