Masan Expected to Close the US$250-Million Investment from Bain Capital on April 22nd 2024

Masan Group Corporation (HOSE: MSN, “Masan” or the “Company”), today announced that the State Securities Commission has acknowledged its receipt of the completed dossier for the private placement of convertible dividend preference shares related to the US$250-million investments from Bain Capital (“Bain”), a world-leading private investment firm with approximately US$180 billion of assets under management. Such acknowledgment is the requisite regulatory approval for closing of the transaction which has been confirmed in writing by both the Company and Bain to occur on April 22nd, 2024. The transaction terms remain the same as per the initial agreement in October 2023.

The Transaction is an equity investment in the form of mandatory Convertible Dividend Preference Share (“CDPS”) to be issued at a price of VND85,000 per share which can be converted into common shares at a 1:1 conversion ratio. The CDPS pays no dividend for the first five years, followed by a 10% dividend of the par value of each outstanding CDPS per annum from the sixth year onwards. On the tenth anniversary of the issuance, the CDPS will be mandatorily converted into common shares at Masan Group.

There are no hedging structures or stock borrow of MSN shares as part of the equity investment that would result in MSN shares needing to be sold in the open market at the date of the issuance. Bain Capital’s interests are fully aligned with current MSN shareholders.

Jefferies Singapore Limited and UBS AG Singapore Branch acted as the financial advisors to Masan Group. The Transaction is subject to customary corporate and regulatory approvals.

The US$250 million investment from Bain Capital will bolster Masan's financial reserves, enhancing its liquidity profile to meet all financial obligations and providing greater flexibility for strategic initiatives. The investment aligns with Masan's strategy to strengthen its financial position, enabling the Company to better capitalize on growth opportunities in serving the needs of 100 million Vietnamese consumers, including daily grocery, financial, and other basic needs.

Bain’s investment reflects its strong commitment to Vietnam’s market in general and Masan’s consumer-focused strategy in particular. Notably, Masan’s consumer businesses demonstrated exceptional performance in 2023, growing its operating profit by 40% YoY. This growth was propelled by robust topline expansion and margin enhancement within the FMCG segment, alongside the resilient profitability of its modern retail business. Looking ahead to 2024, the Company anticipates a recovery in the Vietnamese consumer market, with its consumer businesses poised to sustain their profitable growth trajectory. Leveraging a more favorable business environment and heightened activity in the capital markets, Masan remains proactive in exploring alternative sources of capital with better terms.
