Teachers' agrees to acquire majority stake in Australian telecom companies

TORONTO, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (Teachers') today announced an agreement to acquire 70% of three Australian telecommunications companies from Leighton Holdings Limited (Leighton).

The acquisition of Nextgen Networks, Metronode and Infoplex values 100% of these businesses at A$885 million, subject to certain adjustments. Leighton, based in Sydney, will retain a 30% interest in the companies. The transaction is subject to various approvals (including Australian Foreign Investment Review Board) and is expected to close in mid-2013.

Nextgen manages high-speed, carrier-grade fibre network services; Metronode provides data centre and related value-added services; and Infoplex provides cloud and ICT services. These businesses will be brought together under a new ownership structure following deal completion, and will remain headquartered in Australia with existing management remaining largely in place.

This transaction is led by Teachers' Long-Term Equities group, which focuses on direct investments with steady cash flow, growth potential over a long-term horizon and a low to moderate level of risk.

"We are excited about moving ahead with Leighton. The businesses are a good fit with our portfolio and investment mandate," said Lee Sienna, Vice-President, Long-Term Equities. "Together they provide solid revenue streams and growth upside. We look forward to working with the existing management team to build on its strong track record."
