The current number of Goodman stapled securities on issue remains unchanged at 1,605,107,475 securities.
Goodman Group (Goodman or Group) Restructure
On 30 March 2012, the Group obtained Goodman Stapled Securityholder approval to add Goodman Logistics (HK) Limited (HKCo) to the existing Goodman Group stapled structure.
As part of the Restructure implementation, an interest in HKCo shares has been distributed to Securityholders for each Stapled Security that they hold. Each interest in HKCo shares will be stapled to each existing Goodman Group Stapled Security.
Importantly you maintain the same economic interest in the operations of Goodman Group. You will hold that interest through a Stapled Security that now comprises an ordinary share in Goodman Limited, an ordinary unit in Goodman Industrial Trust and a CDI1 over an ordinary share in HKCo. Your Stapled Securities will trade on ASX under Goodman’s existing ASX code, GMG, from 28 August 2012.
Enclosed is a statement reflecting the distribution to you of the interest in the HKCo shares which you should retain for your records and taxation purposes.
Should you have any questions, please call 1300 723 040 (within Australia) or +61 3 9415 4043 (outside Australia).
