NOT FOR RELEASE OR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES
IAG is pleased to announce that the Share Purchase Plan (SPP) it announced on Friday
20 November 2020 opens today. Eligible Shareholders now have the opportunity to subscribe for up to $30,000 of new fully paid IAG ordinary shares (SPP Shares), free of any brokerage or transaction costs.
The SPP follows completion of the $650 million institutional placement announced by IAG at the same time as the SPP. IAG aims to raise approximately $100 million under the SPP. Depending on the level of demand, IAG may decide to scale back applications or raise an amount higher than $100 million. It is IAG’s intention that any scaleback will be applied having regard to existing holdings of Eligible Shareholders and the size of the parcel of SPP Shares applied for.
The SPP is expected to close at 5:00pm (Sydney time) on Friday, 18 December 2020.
Further details on the SPP, including how to apply, are set out in the SPP Booklet attached to this announcement, which will be sent to Eligible Shareholders.
