CPH has received the attached announcement from MAp.
MAp Airports International Limited (a member of MAp) today advised Copenhagen Airports A/S (CPH) that it has signed a binding agreement with Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board (OTPP), which will result in the divestment of its non-controlling 30.8 % interest in CPH. The agreement involves the sale of MAp’s interests in Copenhagen Airports and Brussels Airport in exchange for OTPP’s interest in Sydney Airport and a net cash payment. It is part of MAp’s strategy to focus on its core asset, Sydney Airport. The asset swap is not expected to complete for a number of months pending satisfaction of the conditions precedent including EC Merger Control approval.
CPH’s chairman of the board, Henrik Gürtler, delivers the following statement: “CPH is developing as the most important gateway to Scandinavia and Northern Europe. We are looking forward to pursuing this in cooperation with the new shareholder”.
