NOTICE OF REPO OUTSTANDINGS AS AT 31 March 2017 View Here >>
In October 2016 LGFA established a bond lending facility under which it may agree to sell/lend LGFA Bonds held by LGFA as treasury stock to approved counterparties under repo transactions. The attachment to this notice summarises, in respect of each Series of LGFA Bonds for which repo transactions can be undertaken, the outstanding repo transactions and the amount of treasury stock held by LGFA on 31 March 2017.
LGFA has received a waiver from NZX in relation to Listing Rule 7.12.1. The waiver decision is available on LGFA’s website at http://www.lgfa.co.nz/for-investors/investor-information. The effect of the waiver is that LGFA is not required to provide a notice under Listing Rule 7.12.1 immediately after re-acquiring LGFA Bonds sold/lent pursuant to repo transactions. Instead, LGFA is required to provide monthly disclosure of amounts outstanding under repo transactions by way of this notice.
This notice is not required to include information on the price at which LGFA reacquired the relevant LGFA Bonds under the repo transactions ("reacquisition price"). This is because the reacquisition price is set at the outset of the relevant repo transaction and does not reflect the market price of the relevant LGFA Bonds. Instead, the reacquisition price is based on security arrangements put in place as part of the relevant repo transaction.
