Macquarie Bank Launches New Capital Notes 5

Macquarie Group Limited (MGL) has launched its Capital Notes 5 (MQGPE) to replace its $531 million Capital Notes 2 (MQGPB) ahead of that issue’s first optional exchange on 17 March 2021. The offer is for $500 million.

According to Bell Potter, new hybrid issues are increasingly aligned to maturing hybrids and it believes this could be the only new hybrid issue in the first half of 2021.

MQGPE should see strong demand as NAB’s old perpetual (NABHA) is due for repayment this month, putting $2 billion back in the hands of existing hybrid investors.

Existing investors in MQGPB have the opportunity to reinvest if they were holders as at 8 February record date.
