The Offerings will be comprised of a combination of Partnership limited partnership units ("LP Units") and BIPC class A exchangeable subordinate voting shares ("Exchangeable Shares") in amounts determined by the Underwriters.

The number of Exchangeable Shares and LP Units to be issued in the Offerings will be determined on November 11, 2021, pre-market open.

The aggregate gross proceeds of the LP Unit Offering, the Exchangeable Share Offering, the Concurrent Unit Private Placement and the Concurrent Exchangeable Share Private Placement will be US$1 billion.

Brookfield Infrastructure intends to use the net proceeds of the LP Unit Offering and the Exchangeable Share Offering, together with the proceeds of the Concurrent Unit Private Placement and the Concurrent Exchangeable Share Private Placement, to fund an active and advanced pipeline of new investment opportunities, including near-term organic growth capital requirements, and for general working capital purposes.
