In August 2015 we made a return to our local market, issuing AUD200m of senior unsecured, fixed rate notes that would take the university’s total outstanding domestic volume to AUD400m.
ANZ secured such exceptional investor support for the transaction that not only was our order book comprised of high calibre international and local investors, it was oversubscribed. Our initial offering was upsized from AUD100m to AUD200m, despite recent volatility seen across global markets.
How? The bank worked with us on a series of calls to key Asian accounts and ran successful roadshows for us in Sydney and Melbourne. In the end 50% of the orders we received came from investors spoken to during this time, with over 25% of the final deal taken up by Asian accounts.
