Macquarie Capital Loans Management Limited (ABN 18 077 595 012) (as responsible entity of the Macquarie CPS Trust (ARSN 129 962 358)) announces that it today issued a Resale Notice for the Macquarie Convertible Preference Securities (“CPS”).

A copy of the Resale Notice is attached (click here).

It is intended that the Resale of the CPS will be undertaken in accordance with the terms and conditions of the CPS (“CPS Terms”), whereby on 1 July 2013 all CPS will be sold to Macquarie Financial Holdings Limited (ABN 63 124 071 398) for $100 per CPS. A distribution on CPS of $5.5019 will also be paid (subject to the payment tests applicable to CPS) at this time.

Completion of the Resale will be subject to the conditions in the Resale Notice. If these are not met, CPS will not convert on 1 July 2013 and, in accordance with the CPS Terms, the next date on which Mandatory Conversion may occur is 30 September 2013.

Macquarie Group Limited (“MQG”) today announced its intention to offer Macquarie Group Capital Notes (“MCN”) through a Prospectus lodged with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission and ASX today. MQG expects that following the issue of MCN, the Resale will be completed. CPS Holders should note the “Reinvestment Offer” made under that Prospectus.

The offer of MCN is made in the Prospectus. A replacement prospectus containing the margin for the MCN and application forms, is expected to be made available on 22 May 2013. Anyone who wants to invest in MCN will need to complete an application form that will be in, or accompany, the replacement prospectus. Investors should read the replacement prospectus in its entirety before deciding whether to apply to invest in MCN. Terms used and not otherwise defined in this announcement have the meaning given to them in the CPS Terms.
