New Zealand Local Government Funding Agency Limited (LGFA) has a proposed tender scheduled to occur on 13 October 2021.
LGFA is considering replacing the tender with an offer of one or more bonds. In relation to this, LGFA is considering, subject to market conditions, making an offer of unsecured, unsubordinated fixed rate bonds maturing on 15 May 2028 (2028 Bonds) and/or an offer of unsecured, unsubordinated fixed rate bonds maturing on 15 May 2035 (2035 Bonds, together with the 2028 Bonds, the Bonds), to institutional and New Zealand retail investors.
If LGFA decides to proceed with any offer, LGFA would cancel the proposed tender that is scheduled to occur on 13 October 2021. In that case, it is expected that full details of any offer of the Bonds will be released next week, when such offer would be expected to open.

No money is currently being sought and applications for the Bonds cannot currently be made. If LGFA offers any Bonds, the offer(s) will be made in accordance with the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 as an offer of debt securities of the same class as existing quoted debt securities.
