National Australia Bank joins in with GG buyback spree
National Australia Bank became the latest bank to buy back government guaranteed bonds set to mature in 2012. It follows buyback offers from Investec Australia and Citigroup Australia. However, NAB’s offer is the biggest (and the tightest) so far.
NAB is offering to buy back A$1.62bn of FRN notes and A$1.33bn of fixed rate notes, the entire issue. It is offering a rate of BBSW flat for both tranches, compared to levels of 9bp-10bp over BBSW before the offer was announced.
NAB is sole lead on the buyback.
