Our return to the Australian domestic market in September 2015 was so successful that we capped our issue at AUD250m despite the order book growing to AUD450m. The transaction exceeded our expectations but we had achieved our objectives.
Primary success factors included:
- ANZ’s good pipeline visibility.
- Sound advice in a challenging market.
- Strong investor engagement prior to launch.
It must be acknowledged that the Asia/domestic investor roadshows in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Sydney and Melbourne were a great marketing tool. The majority of the total orders came from buy and hold investors who participated in the roadshow.
