IG4 believes in the long term prospects of the Company and is interested in acquiring pursuant to the Offers and as a result of the arrangements contemplated by the Tender Offer Support Agreement a “participación significativa” (as defined in Reglamento de Oferta Pública de Adquisicion y de Compra de Valores por Exclusión approved by CONASEV Resolution No. 009-2006-EF to mean the direct or indirect ownership, or the ability to direct the voting, of 25% or more of the shares of a Peruvian company listed on the LSE) of no less than 219,144,510 Common Shares, representing approximately 25.13% of the outstanding Common Shares, including Common Shares represented by American Depositary Shares (each of which represents five (5) Common Shares) (each, an “ADS,” and collectively, the “ADSs”).

On June 16, 2021, Purchaser commenced the Offers to purchase 107,198,601 Common Shares, including Common Shares represented by ADSs. The purpose of the Offers is for Purchaser to acquire approximately 12.29% of the outstanding Common Shares, including Common Shares represented by ADSs, and, together with the voting rights in respect of Common Shares that Purchaser has acquired pursuant to the terms of the Amended GH Syndication Agreement, the Amended HG Syndication Agreement, the MA Syndication Agreement and the Trust Agreement, as amended by the Trust Amendment Agreement, for Purchaser to either own or have the ability to direct the voting of 219,144,510 Common Shares representing, in the aggregate, approximately 25.13% of the outstanding Common Shares, including Common Shares represented by ADSs, to enable IG4 to exert a level of influence over the Company that, together with the support of other shareholders of the Company, will allow IG4 to promote and execute measures that IG4 determines will enhance the value of the Company. Purchaser intends to seek at least two shareholders of the Company, each owning 4% or more of the outstanding Common Shares, including Common Shares represented by ADSs (the “Other Shareholders”), to declare publicly their support for Purchaser’s plans and proposals for the Company as described in this Item 4.

Plans for the Company

As soon as practicable following consummation of the Offers, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Purchaser intends to request the Company’s board of directors (the “Company Board”) to convene a special meeting of the shareholders of the Company to seek the replacement of three (3) out of the nine (9) directors of the Company Board, in each case with individuals associated with Purchaser. Purchaser also intends to identify and suggest to other shareholders of the Company suitable candidates for election to the Company Board as independent directors and expects to lead the selection of the new Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

Purchaser intends to conduct a detailed review of the Company and its assets, corporate structure, capitalization, operations, properties, policies, management and personnel and to consider and determine what, if any, changes would be desirable in light of the circumstances which exist.

In particular, Purchaser intends to focus on reestablishing the Company as a leading infrastructure platform in Latin America, with assets and concessions in Peru and in other countries in the region. In the short term, Purchaser intends to focus, with the support of the Other Shareholders, on the following initiatives:

Plans Related to Compliance Issues:

faithful compliance in due time and form with all legal and civil commitments to the Peruvian Public Prosecutor (Fiscalía) and the Peruvian Attorney General (Procuraduria), including the payment of any civil reparations and/or fines according to the schedule defined by the Peruvian Public Prosecutor (Fiscalía) and the Peruvian Attorney General (Procuraduria);
implementation of compliance best practices, such as the establishment of a strong compliance structure, policies, procedures and training in line with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the anti-corruption and money laundering rules and regulations of Peru and Brazil, supporting the redesign and implementation of new committee structures, and improving the directors and officers insurance policy (D&O liability insurance policy);
evaluation of the Company’s corporate culture and the impact of the investigations of the Company regarding corruption or other illegal acts, including the outcome from the Collaboration and Benefits Preparatory Agreement between the Company and the special team of prosecutors with exclusive jurisdiction over investigations of crimes of corruption of public officials and related offences and the Ad Hoc Attorney General’s Office with jurisdiction over investigations and proceedings related to crimes of corruption of public officials, money laundering and related offenses dated as of May 21, 2021 on the Company;
strengthening of the Company’s corporate governance structure;

Plans Related to a Potential Restructuring of the Company:

studying different organizational restructuring alternatives, including a corporate reorganization of the Company’s business units and a possible spin-off of two (2) or more entities to separate the infrastructure assets from the engineering and construction, real estate and oil and gas assets;
financial restructuring by repositioning the Company before the national and international markets, including a restructuring of project finance and long-term debt, the increase of capital of certain subsidiaries, the issuance of long-term bonds in national and international capital markets or conducting institutional roadshows for the infrastructure platform;

 

  Page 8 of 17 Pages  

 

 

conducting ongoing evaluations which include the search for a potential strategic partner for the engineering and construction unit, the corporate restructuring of the Company and its subsidiaries and the granting of a pre-negotiated USD $120,000,000 credit facility with four (4) banks;
operational restructuring, including the implementation of cost reducing programs at all levels and staff reduction at the corporate level;
evaluation of the Company’s asset portfolio with the objective of understanding its level of compatibility with Purchaser’s strategy;

Plans Related to the Management of the Company:

 

evaluation of the long-term incentives awards for the Company’s senior management, including a stock option plan;
evaluation of the current executives of the Company and analysis of the executive profiles that the Company will need in the next five (5) years;

Plans Related to the Company’s Business:

 

definition of a strategic business plan for the next five (5) years;
enhancement of the Company’s investor relations; and
optimization of the cost structure of the Company.

Purchaser recognizes that most of the Company’s profits come from its concessions which are part of the Company’s Infrastructure division. The stability and predictability of cash flows generated by concessions is an attractive factor for a private equity fund such as IG4 Capital. Purchaser intends to support growth of the Infrastructure division of the Company’s business through new concessions and public-private partnerships (“PPPs”), while also considering the possibility of inorganic growth through the acquisition of concessions and PPPs from third parties. To achieve this, Purchaser plans to support the Company’s participation in new tenders and acquisitions in Peru and other countries in the region, including Chile, Colombia and Brazil, with the goal of creating the largest regional platform for the development of infrastructure projects. Purchaser also intends to recommend consolidation of the terminal business held through UNNA Energía S.A. (formerly known as Graña y Montero Petrolera S.A.), which has very similar characteristics to the Company’s infrastructure assets, within the Infrastructure division.

In order to focus on growing the Company’s Infrastructure division, Purchaser has engaged in discussions with certain construction companies in the region to explore options for a strategic partnership in connection with the Engineering and Construction division of the Company.

As discussed in more detail in Item 6 below, on July 12, 2021, Purchaser entered into a commitment to subscribe for 22,120 convertible bonds, par value U.S. $1,000 per bond, offered by the Company (the “Convertible Bonds”) for an aggregate subscription price of U.S. $22,120,000.00. The Bonds are offered as part of a private placement, which the Company resolved to carry out by way of shareholder resolution passed on November 2, 2020. The earliest time that holders of the Bonds may exercise the conversion option is on the last business day of each month, as of the last business day of the sixth (6) month counted from the issue date. The initial conversion price (subject to adjustment to reflect changes in the number or nominal value of the Common Shares and other situations that dilute the initial conversion price) for the Convertible Bonds is the minimum between (i) U.S. $0.33 per Common Share and (ii) the 80% of the average price of transactions occurring during the thirty (30) days prior to the conversion date, weighted by the volume of each transaction.

Purchaser intends to review its investment in the Company and the Company’s performance and market conditions periodically and to consider possible strategies for enhancing value and to take such actions with respect to its investment as it deems appropriate in light of the circumstances existing from time to time. In the future, Purchaser may take actions including, among other things, communication with members of management, the Company Board or other shareholders of or lenders to the Company and/or other relevant parties from time to time with respect to operational, strategic, financial or governance matters, including, but not limited to, potential financings, refinancings, recapitalizations, reorganizations, mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, a sale of the Company or other corporate transactions, or otherwise working with management and the Company Board. Such actions could also include additional purchases of Common Shares, including Common Shares represented by ADSs, and purchases of securities convertible or exchangeable into Common Shares, whether pursuant to one or more open-market purchase programs, through private transactions or through tender offers or otherwise, subject to applicable U.S. and Peruvian law. Future purchases may be on the same terms or on terms that are more or less favorable to holders of Common Shares and/or ADSs than the terms of the Offers. Any possible future purchases will depend on many factors, including the results of the Offers, the market price of Common Shares, Purchaser’s business and financial position, and general economic and market conditions. In addition, Purchaser may also determine to dispose of its Common Shares (which may include, but is not limited to, transferring some or all of such securities to its affiliates or distributing some or all of such securities to their respective partners, members or beneficiaries, as applicable), in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time, subject to applicable laws, in each case, in open market or private transactions, block sales or otherwise. Any such decision would be based on Purchaser’s assessment of a number of different factors, including, without limitation, the business, prospects and affairs of the Company, the market for Common Shares, the condition of the securities markets, general economic and industry conditions, tax considerations and other opportunities available to IG4.

Other than as set forth in this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Persons have no present plans or proposals which relate to or would result in any of the matters set forth in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
