Please note that the Redeemable Convertible Preference Shares are denominated in Australian dollars and pay returns in Australian dollars. The coupon base, 6 month BBSW, is the 6 month Australian bank bill rate.

The current coupon of 8.533% is comprised of a rate of 6.61% from 17 Oct 2011 to 24 Oct 2011 and 8.61% from 24 Oct 2011 to 16 Apr 2012.

The Redeemable Convertible Preference Shares are a perpetual instrument and as such have no fixed redemption date and the holder has no rights to require redemption.

The Redeemable Convertible Preference Shares pay semi-annual, floating rate, non-cumulative Distribution Payments.
