• Section 2: Your New Alinta ordinary shares

    Column 5 - Number of New Alinta ordinary shares you received

    Under the merger, for every AGL share that was transferred to the New Alinta group, you received .5775 of a New Alinta ordinary share.

    For each parcel of your AGL shares, you work out the figure to enter at column 5 using this formula:

    The number of AGL shares (column 2)   .5775

    You may have to round up or round down the number of New Alinta shares in some of your parcels, so that the total number of shares you show in Column 5 equals the number shown in your Holding Statement

    Column 6 - Cost base of your New Alinta shares

    New Alinta shares received for pre-CGT AGL shares

    This column is not relevant for any New Alinta shares you received for your pre-CGT AGL shares.

    New Alinta shares received for your post-CGT AGL shares

    As a result of the merger, you need to apportion the cost base of your AGL shares between your New Alinta shares and your AGL Energy shares. To work out the amount for your New Alinta shares, use the following formula for each of your parcels:

    Cost base of your AGL shares (column 3)   27.97%*

    * How is this percentage determined?

    You need to apportion the cost base of your AGL shares between the shares you received under the merger in a manner that is reasonable. The percentage in the formula above is based on a market value of the New Alinta shares relative to the market value of the AGL Energy shares you received under the merger. This is considered to be a reasonable approach.

    Column 7 - Cost base of your New Alinta shares

    New Alinta shares received for pre-CGT AGL shares

    The first element of the cost base of each of your New Alinta shares you received for any pre-CGT AGL shares is $10.36. This has already been completed for you.

    New Alinta shares received for your post-CGT AGL shares

    To work out the first element of the cost base of each of your New Alinta shares, use the following formula:

    Cost base amount
         (column 6)

     

    Number of New Alinta shares
               (column 5)

    Column 8 - Acquisition Date

    For New Alinta shares received for your pre-CGT AGL shares this is 25 October 2006, which is the date the merger happened. This has already been completed for you.

    Note that for the purposes of the CGT discount, you are treated as having acquired New Alinta shares received for your post CGT AGL shares on the date you acquired your post-CGT AGL shares.
