IOOF Holdings Limited (ASX: IFL) is engaged in the financial services with its operations in portfolio management, advisory, distribution and superannuation administration, investment management and trustee services.
The company today, on 13th May 2019, updated on the acquisition progress of Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited’s (ANZ) One Path Pensions and Investments business (P&I Acquisition).
After the completion of the acquisition by IOOF of the ANZ Aligned Dealer Groups on 2nd October 2018, IOOF and ANZ have worked together towards the completion of the P&I Acquisition.
The successor funds transfer has been completed, which was an important criteria to distinguish the ANZ P&I business products from OnePath Life and was a condition to completion of the P&I acquisition.
The coupon rate has been reset to 2% from 14.4% per annum on the debt note subscribed by IOOF from ANZ, as per the contractual arrangements. IOOF can now redeem the note, and if they do so, then the proceeds will be applied to the balance held for transaction completion and the drawn debt.
The completion of the P&I acquisition is subject to the receipt of notices confirming no objection about the proceedings from OnePath Custodians and ANZ. IOOF continues to work with OPC and ANZ to provide the information and resources necessary to facilitate those notices being given.
From 5th July 2019, recent amendments to the Superannuation Industry Act 1993 will be implemented, which gives APRA an approval power with respect to the acquisition of controlling stakes in Registrable Superannuation Entity licensees (such as OPC). The receipt of such approval from APRA may also become a condition to completion of the P&I acquisition, depending on the timing of the receipt of any notices of no objection from OPC and ANZ.
The company in the recent past has reported that it has experienced net inflows of $337 million in funds under management, administration and advice (FUMA) for the third quarter of the 2019 financial year.
Portfolio and Estate Administration reported $183 million net inflow with the prior comparative period net inflow of $346 million. The Financial Advice segment had a $263 million net inflow as compared to $736 million net inflow in the prior corresponding period. And the Investment Management reported $129 million net cash outflow for the reported period.
