The variation to the Offer by increasing the Offer Price was made in an announcement to the ASX on 11 December 2020 by Taylor Collison (as broker to the Offer) (Supplementary Broker Announcement).

The Bidder will fund the cash consideration payable under the Offer using cash at hand, and the Bidder is of the opinion that it has a reasonable basis for forming the view, and it holds the view, that it will be able to satisfy its payment obligations under the Offer.
