Bell Gully advises on $1.8bn sale of One NZ stake to Infratil

Bell Gully has represented Brookfield Asset Management in the unconditional sale of its 49.95% stake in One NZ to Infratil in a deal worth $1.8bn.

This transaction marks Brookfield's complete exit from One NZ following the previous sale of the company’s passive mobile tower assets for $1.7bn in November 2022. The sale of these assets had resulted in the largest tower business in New Zealand, providing coverage to 98% of the country’s population.

With the acquisition of Brookfield's 49.95% stake, Infratil's ownership in One NZ will increase from 49.95% to 99.9%.
