Our senior unsecured capital markets debut was a great success, attracting participation from a broad range of high quality accounts both here in Australia and overseas.
Despite recent volatility, support for our strong credit rating led to a drastically oversubscribed order book. We were able to upsize the deal from AUD100m to AUD200m and close the transaction intraday.
Our success was due to the roadshow we ran with ANZ through Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and Melbourne. We were able to secure a high degree of investor engagement in the issuance. This was reflected in the final investor book which drew one of the highest Asian allocations we have seen in recent times.
