Keppel Infrastructure Trust completes acquisition of Ventura

Keppel Infrastructure Fund Management Pte. Ltd. (KIFM), as Trustee-Manager of Keppel Infrastructure Trust (KIT), is pleased announce that it has completed its acquisition of approximately 97.68%[1] interest in Ventura Motors Pty. Ltd. (Ventura).

Ventura provides essential transport services and has the largest market share of public bus services in Victoria, operating approximately 530 routes out of Melbourne’s ~1,200 total routes. Andrew Cornwall, the current Managing Director of Ventura remains as its Chief Executive Officer and retains the rest of the minority stake in the business.

This acquisition has been funded by a term loan facility. With the completion of the acquisition, KIT’s financial position remains strong, maintaining sufficient headroom over its financial covenant thresholds.

Mr Kevin Neo, CEO of KIFM, said, “The addition of Ventura to KIT’s portfolio will help to bolster recurring and predictable cash flows for the Trust. As the new owner, KIT will further the successes of the Ventura team as the business enters its next phase of growth.

“Tapping on Keppel and KIT’s wider experience in designing, executing and managing EV charging solutions, we will work closely with Andrew and the management team to accelerate Ventura’s electrification program to support the Victorian Government’s drive for zero-emission bus services.”

KIT’s assets under management will grow from S$8.1 billion as at 2 January 2024 to approximately S$8.8 billion[2] upon the completion of the acquisition.
