Westpac Capital Notes 3 proves popular
Westpac announced the results of its institutional book-build for its latest hybrid (ASX Code: WBCPF) and it would seem the bank had little trouble in selling it. The offer size was increased from $750m to $1.25bn and the margin came in at the bottom of the 4.00% to 4.20% range. The fact that the 400bps margin for this type of hybrid is the highest-ever from one of the four major banks was a major selling point.


MyState issues first tier 2 hybrid
MyState Bank announced it had priced $25m of floating rate notes in what is to be its inaugural issue of tier 2 capital. The subordinated notes mature in 10 years, are callable after five, and pay interest at a generous 500bps over BBSW. The notes are callable on 14 Aug 2020 and then on every interest payment date up until the final maturity date in 2025. While the notes look standard enough they carry Basel II compliant “non-viability trigger” which converts the notes into MyState Bank shares should APRA deem MyState to be non-viable. MyState’s MD Melos Sulicich said the issue would strength the MyState’s capital position while diversifying its capital base and allowing the maintenance of loan growth momentum.


Woolworth’s WOWHC margin has widened in past months subsequent to earnings downgrades and a falling share price. The chart shows the WOWHC subordinated notes (Dec 2016) margin and the Woolworth’s March 2016 senior bond margin. Note both have widened in July this year. The Woolworth’s senior has stayed at recent highs whereas WOWHC has narrowed in recent days perhaps due to the coupon payment next week. The chart also show a ratio of WOWHCs margin over the senior debt. The ratio is at lows suggesting the sub notes look relatively expensive although this ratio would be expected to narrow a little as maturity approaches.
