Ferrovial submits a non-binding proposal to acquire Transfield Services for $1.95 per share

Ferrovial Services submits an indicative, non-binding proposal to acquire 100% of Transfield Services.

Cash price of $1.95 per share.

Compelling premium of 39% to one week VWAP.

Ferrovial Servicios, S.A. (“Ferrovial Services”) confirmed today that it has submitted an indicative, non-binding proposal to the Board of Transfield Services Limited (“Transfield Services”) to acquire 100% of Transfield Services´ issued share capital for a cash price of $1.95 per share.

Ferrovial Services believes the proposal represents a compelling proposition for Transfield Services´ shareholders. The proposal would also provide substantial benefits to employees and customers by joining a leading international services group.

The proposal price represents a substantial premium to recently traded prices[i], including:

  • 39% premium to the one week volume weighted average price (VWAP) of A$1.41
  • 34% premium to the 1 month VWAP of A$1.46
  • 45% premium to the 6 month VWAP of A$1.35

Ferrovial Services notes that the Transfield Services Board is not willing to support its current proposal and intends to provide only limited due diligence. Sufficient due diligence is required to enable Ferrovial Services to put forward a definitive transaction that can be considered by shareholders.

The proposal is subject to customary conditions, and will not require additional external funding. The proposal remains non-binding and indicative only and there is no guarantee that any transaction will proceed. Ferrovial Services reserves the right to withdraw the proposal at any time.

Ferrovial Services has engaged UBS as its financial adviser and Allens as its legal counsel.
