Q: Hi Peter and team, Just thought I would ask about the ethical aspects of this so called hostile take-over? In my mind BIPC only with the support of BAM.a and BUFFALO AQUISITION CORP. aka BIF IV (looks like a shell company to me that) are trying to BULLY in here on long suffering shareholders of IPL. Let me try to put this in perspective, IPL has spent nearly four years and nearly four billion dollars engineering, designing, procuring, and constructing and world scale propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and polypropylene (PP) facility, all to the boohoos of the so-called "investment community". The projected increase to IPL's EBITDA is estimated to increase by $400million to $500 million (a double), not including the recent increase in PP prices. Do you think IPL could get one good word out of anyone? Nope, they all stayed clear, even after IPL raised $700 million with the sale of 50% their Europe storage assets. Now IPL is self funding the project thru to it's completion (which significantly de-risks the project from a monetary point of view. Last CC management shared they are ramping up for testing and commissioning which looks like PDH should be up and chugging along by summer. I've been working in the energy industry for 42 years and can share, that a typical approach is to use IP, from patented chemical processes and copyrighted proprietary equipment that is proven. This isn't rocket science. What recourse do shareholders have considering BIPC aka BIF IV have acted unethically by acquiring an additional 10% of IPL without disclosing this to anyone? Who are the responsible authorities that should be looking into this? I would like to thank BIP for acknowledging the new facility has a great business plan as well as PPL ,as they have an almost exact replica (delayed by COVID19) planned in next year.

Q: What do you think of BIP's offer for IPL?

I note that the stock price of BIP is down about 20% since Dec 24. I also think that investors may be in part selling now to shy away from the fossil fuel industry. Yet the pipeline industry seems less impacted by the price of oil and the regulations barring new pipelines. Wouldn't this make the existing pipes more valuable.

So, does all this imply that this downdraft is a good buying opportunity for bip (which I already own a lot of)?
