AMP Capital acquires NZ asset from Brookfield

AMP Capital has entered into an agreement to acquire 42 per cent of New Zealand-based electricity and gas company, Powerco NZ Holdings Limited, from Brookfield Infrastructure.


The purchase price of NZ$525 million represents an enterprise value of approximately NZ$1 billion, according to AMP Capital.

This investment was made on behalf of AMP Capital clients and managed funds, including the AMP Capital Infrastructure Equity Fund and the AMP Capital Core Infrastructure Fund.  

“We are an experienced asset manager of critical infrastructure assets and have a long-term strategy to manage and improve the assets under our management,” said AMP Capital global head of infrastructure Scott Davies.

“We see significant opportunity for further growth in the business, with Powerco supplying key population growth regions in New Zealand.

“The strength of the Powerco business and the New Zealand economy makes this an attractive investment for our managed funds and clients. This transaction offers them exposure to a geographically diversified quality asset in the core regulated utility sector.”

According to AMP Capital, Powerco supplies electricity and gas to more than 426,000 consumers in New Zealand’s North Island.
