Text too small?
As of last Friday, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) advised that acceptances have been lodged for 141,494,218 shares, representing 11.58% of the total shares in the company.

Of those acceptances, 114,485,463 shares have been lodged in the CPPIB acceptance facility. These shares can be withdrawn by shareholders prior to the close of the offer.

175,306,129 shareholder votes, representing 14.34% of the total shares in the company, have also been received. Of the votes received to date, 34.84% are against CPPIB acquiring a 40% stake and 65.16% are in favour of the offer.

Auckland Airport shareholders are required to make two decisions - whether to sell their shares into the offer, and whether to vote for or against CPPIB becoming a 40% shareholder. CPPIB needs 39.2% acceptances and a majority vote in order to complete the transaction.

The offer closes on 13 March 2008.
