Major bank to raise $750m with new hybrid

CBA has launched a new tier-one hybrid security, PERLS X, with a margin expected to be set between 3.4 per cent and 3.6 per cent above the 90-day bank bill swap rate.

The PERLS X Capital Notes will aim to raise a minimum of $750 million of tier-one capital for CBA, the same amount announced by Westpac on 6 February 2018 with the launch of its Capital Notes 5 offer (Westpac went on to raise $1.45 billion).

CBA’s new hybrid will be issued on 6 April 2018 with a margin expected to be set between 3.4 per cent and 3.6 per cent above the 90-day bank bill swap rate (BBSW).

As at 7 March, the 90-day BBSW mid-point rate was 1.845 per cent, making the PERLS X likely to begin trading with a distribution between 5.245 per cent and 5.445 per cent.

The PERLS X securities — which are structured as perpetual, subordinated, unsecured, convertible notes — have no fixed maturity date but are scheduled for mandatory conversion into CBA ordinary shares on 15 April 2027.

PERLS X is expected to be quoted on the ASX under the trading code CBAPG, with a face value of $100.

CBA will act as the arranger and joint lead manager to the offer, while ANZ Securities, Morgan Stanley Securities, Morgans Financial and Westpac Institutional Bank have also been appointed as joint lead managers.
