Annual General Meeting
At the Annual General Meeting of 3i Infrastructure plc at 12 noon today, Peter Sedgwick, Chairman of 3i Infrastructure plc, commented that:
"The focus of 3i Infrastructure since the IPO has been to invest the capital raised at floatation in assets that will help secure our target returns for the future. We have made good progress in this respect. The assets which seeded the initial portfolio at flotation are performing well and these have generated returns in line with our expectations."
"We have been very happy with the level of investments and quality of assets that the investment advisory team at 3i has been recommending to the Board."
The Annual General Meeting will be followed by an Extraordinary General Meeting on 10 September 2007, where a resolution will be put to shareholders relating to the proposed US$250 million investment in a fund being established by 3i Group to make infrastructure investments in India.
