APA GROUP OFFER HAS CLOSED AND COMPULSORY ACQUISITION HAS BEEN COMPLETED.

EPX Securityholders whose securities have been compulsorily acquired will need to complete a claim form in order to receive the consideration.  This form was posted to those securityholders on the 16 June 2016. You will receive the same cash consideration of A$1.88 per EPX security as those securityholders who validly accepted the Offer.

EPX Securities (ASX:EPX) have been suspended from quotation on the ASX as a result of the compulsory acquisition process. This means that EPX Securities are no longer able to be traded on the ASX.
