“I want to thank shareholders for their tremendous support for the offer – it is a great endorsement of the strength of both our franchise and strategy,” Westpac chief executive Brian Hartzer said.

According to a company statement, 22.7 million entitlements were sold in the retail shortfall bookbuild at a clearing price of $29.50 per new share (being the offer price of $25.50 per new share, plus $4.00 per entitlement).

The retail sale proceeds are expected to be paid on or about Tuesday, 24 November 2015.
