The Treasury expects to issue between NZ$1.5 billion and NZ$2.5 billion of the 20 September 2035 inflation-indexed bond in the syndicated tap. Concurrent to the syndicated tap, the Treasury is open to repurchasing up to NZ$1.5 billion of the 20 September 2025 inflation-indexed bond.
Further details are as follows:
- The intention of the Treasury is for the repurchase to run concurrently, but independently, of the syndicated tap.
- Investors can participate in the tap, or repurchase, or both. Conditional orders will not be accepted between the tap and repurchase, although recycling capital into longer-dated inflation-indexed bonds aligns with the Treasury’s objectives.
- The Treasury expects the 20 September 2030 inflation-indexed bond to be the pricing reference for both the tap and repurchase.
A ‘Question and Answers’ document is available from the Joint-Lead Managers, or directly from the Treasury.
