EUROCLEAR NOTIFICATION OF EARLY REDEMPTION OF COMMONWEALTH GOVERNMENT
Euroclear broadcast a notice dated 20 August 2002 that the Commonwealth of Australia had elected to redeem all of the outstanding Commonwealth of Australia 9 per cent Treasury Fixed Coupon Bond due 15 September 2004.
The Commonwealth currently has no plans to undertake any early redemption of the 9 per cent Treasury Fixed Coupon Bond due 15 September 2004.
The notice broadcast by Euroclear was a mistake. The AOFM understands that Euroclear is investigating the basis of this misinformation.
