Macquarie Completes Bookbuild For Capital Notes 6

Macquarie Group Limited (ASX:MQG) has lodged its replacement prospectus following the successful completion of its bookbuild for its Macquarie Capital Notes 6 offer which was announced at the end of June.

Macquarie has allocated $750 million in firm commitments to syndicate brokers and institutional investors. The margin for MCN6 was set at 3.70% per annum which was at the bottom end of the target range. Macquarie initially intended to raise $400 million.

MCN6 are fully paid, unsecured, subordinated, non-cumulative, mandatorily convertible, perpetual, automatically convertible notes issued by MGL at an issue price of $A100 per MCN6. Distributions are scheduled to be paid quarterly in arrears.

Unlike previous Macquarie retail hybrid offers there was not a MGL security holder offer for MCN6.

Macquarie Capital Notes 6 will trade on the ASX with code MQGPF and is expected to trade on 18 July 2022.
