Nature of business: BIPC will own and operate high-quality, long-life infrastructure assets that generate stable cash flows, require relatively minimal maintenance capital expenditures and, by virtue of barriers to entry and other characteristics, tend to appreciate in value over time. Its initial operations will consist principally of the ownership and operation of regulated gas transmission systems in Brazil and of regulated distribution operations in the United Kingdom.
Transfer agent and registrar: Computershare Trust Company of Canada at its principal office in Toronto.
Dividends: The board may declare dividends at its discretion and in accordance with applicable law. However, each Exchangeable Share has been structured with the intention of providing an economic return equivalent to one Unit and, following the Distribution, it is expected that dividends on the Exchangeable Shares will be declared and paid at the same time and the same amount as distributions are declared and paid on the Units to provide holders of the Exchangeable Shares with an economic return equivalent to holders of Units.
Sponsorship: Not applicable
