OPEN LETTER TO AMP PROPERTY PORTFOLIO
Properties today released to NZX an open letter to AMP
Property Portfolio Investments Limited ("AMP Property
Portfolio"), in response to an open letter received from AMP
Property Portfolio on 21 October 2005. A copy of the letter
will also be made available later today on Capital
Properties' website at www.cpnz.co.nz
Chairman of Capital Properties' Independent Directors' Committee Tony Frankham said that the open letter had been released to ensure that all parties had access to the material in the letter.
AMP Property Portfolio is offering $1.42 for each Capital Property share. The Independent Adviser appointed under the Takeovers Code, Deloitte, assessed that the $1.42 a share offer was not fair to shareholders and was below the fair value range of $1.48 to $1.73 a share with a mid-point of $1.60. The Capital Properties Independent Directors' Committee has recommended that shareholders not accept the current offer.
