CPS are fully paid preference shares issued by ANZ, which will Mandatorily convert into Ordinary Shares (subject to certain conditions being satisfied) unless the Mandatory Conversion Conditions are not satisfied or ANZ elects for a third party to purchase the CPS. The Offer is being made as part of ANZ's ongoing capital management strategy, with the CPS proceeds being used for ANZ's general corporate purposes.
Dividends are preferred, non-cumulative, floating rate, expected to be fully franked and paid quarterly in arrears, subject to the Payment Tests.
If any Dividend is not franked or only partially franked, ANZ will increase the amount of the Dividend to fully compensate for the unfranked component, subject to the Payment Tests.
Dividends are non-cumulative. If a Dividend or part of a Dividend is not paid on a Dividend Payment Date, CPS Holders have no claim or entitlement in respect of non-payment, nor any right to receive that Dividend at any later time (however, the Distribution Restriction may apply in this scenario).
The Margin is fixed at 2.5% over the 90 day bank bill rate.
The Mandatory Conversion Conditions provide protection to CPS Holders from receiving less than $102.56 worth of Ordinary Shares per CPS on Conversion (unless the Mandatory Conversion Conditions are not satisfied or ANZ elects for a third party to purchase the CPS).
ANZ's CPS have been assigned provisional investment grade issue credit ratings of A+ by Standard and Poor's and Aa3 by Moody's.
ANZ has recently had its own credit ratings confirmed by Standard and Poor's (of AA) and Moody's (Aa1)
ANZ will apply for CPS to be quoted on the ASX.
ANZ CPS will have an Issue Price of $100 per CPS.

An investment in CPS has associated risks. Below is a summary of the key risks only. Investors should read the Investment Risks Section of the Prospectus (Section 4) completely before deciding whether to invest in ANZ's CPS.
Financial market conditions and liquidity The market price of CPS may change due to various factors that affect financial market conditions.
Dividends may not be paid There is a risk that Dividends will not be paid. The CPS Terms contain no events of default and, accordingly, a failure to pay a scheduled Dividend on CPS will not constitute an event of default.
Dividends may not be fully franked There is no guarantee that ANZ will have sufficient franking credits in the future to fully frank Dividends. If a Dividend is unfranked or partially franked, the Dividend will be increased to fully compensate for the unfranked component, subject to the Payment Tests. New Zealand tax resident CPS Holders will not receive the benefit of franking credits attached to Dividends.
Mandatory Conversion may not occur CPS are expected to Convert into Ordinary Shares on the Mandatory Conversion Date. However, there is a risk that Conversion will not occur because the Mandatory Conversion Conditions are not satisfied.
Ranking CPS are issued by ANZ on the CPS Terms and CPS Holders have no claim on ANZ in respect of CPS except as provided in those CPS Terms. CPS are not secured.
ANZ's financial performance and position The market price of CPS (and the Ordinary Shares into which they are expected to Convert) may be affected by ANZ's financial performance and position.
If ANZ is wound up, CPS Holders rank for payment behind all depositors, creditors and rank equal with ANZ StEPS, 2003 Trust Securities, 2004 Trust Securities, 2007 Stapled Securities and any other equal ranking instruments. On a winding-up there is a risk that CPS Holders will not receive a return of capital or payment of any Dividend which has been declared but not paid.
