Brookfield Multiplex is a global contracting and development company that designs, builds and maintains property and infrastructure assets.
Multiplex announced in late November 2006 that it planned to create a European real-estate fund to increase profits. Multiplex posted a preliminary financial report on 22 February 2007 which announced the group's net profit of A$295.6 million.
In January 2007 Multiplex faced a takeover bid which caused its share price to jump 17%. The A$4.03 billion proposal was never formally made and the potential bidder remained anonymous.
On 11 June 2007, Brookfield Asset Management proposed an acquisition of Multiplex which valued the company at approximately A$7.3 billion. The offer to shareholders of $5.05 per security was supported by the Multiplex board of directors, including the Roberts family, who sold their 26% ownership of Multiplex to Brookfield. The offer also proved popular with investors, with Brookfield rapidly acquiring 90% ownership of the company by 31 October 2007.
Brookfield acquired the remaining 10% of Multiplex securities and delisted the company from the ASX in November 2007. Brookfield published a statement to the ASX outlining its intentions following the acquisition of Multiplex.
Multiplex's first project was the laying of a pipeline across the Mandurah estuary. Other construction projects include:
