The state-owned bank's parent company New Zealand Post has released its annual accounts, which show $43.5 million paid up front for GMI.
They also show that another $14.5 million is due to be paid at some point in the future based on GMI reaching certain milestones including the level of funds under management.
The accounts show GMI contributed $3.6 million of revenue and $1.2 million of net profit after tax between March 31 when NZ Post took over and June 30; according to NZ Post it cost $600,000 to make the acquisition.
"Had this business combination been effected at July 1, 2011, the revenue of the group from continuing operations would have increased by approximately $14.4 million, and the profit for the year from continuing operations would have increased by approximately by $4.8 million," NZ Post says.
The purchase of GMI, which had more than $600 million in its KiwiSaver scheme and $1.5 billion FUM overall, has made Kiwibank the sixth-largest KiwiSaver provider.
