# Section 2: Your New Alinta ordinary shares

Last updated 5 October 2009

## 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.

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.
