Brookfield will facilitate the Schoeller Group increasing their ownership by 5% to 30% at closing and, subject to certain conditions, the Schoeller Group will have the opportunity to further increase their ownership.

Brookfield and Schoeller Group will jointly pursue a growth strategy both organically and through acquisitions, capitalising on the long standing international network of the Schoeller Group and supported by Brookfield's global presence, financial strength and expertise. A number of potential transactions are in discussion.
