Kiwi Capital Securities Limited, a related company of Kiwibank Limited, today announced details of the offer of perpetual callable non-cumulative preference shares (Shares), to be known as Kiwi Income Securities. The offer opens on 8 April 2010 and is expected to remain open until 30 April.
The Shares will have a minimum dividend rate of 8.13% p.a. for the first five years. If a dividend is paid when scheduled, it will be comprised of a cash payment and, to the extent available, imputation credits attached to the cash payment. The cash payment will be a proportion of the dividend rate. The actual dividend rate for the first five years will be set on 3 May 2010, and will be set at a margin of 2.90% p.a. over the five year swap rate (adjusted as necessary to a quarterly rate) on that date or at the minimum dividend rate, whichever is the higher.
Richard Schofield, Kiwibank Limited's Treasurer, said that the offer attracted strong demand. “We are delighted with the support shown for the offer.
