CONVERSION OF INVESTMENT HOLDING OF SEPTEMBER 2004 TREASURY BOND
The Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM) has converted $760 million face value of the September 2004 Treasury bond held as an investment by the Australian Government into other Treasury bond stock.
Conversion of this stock has been undertaken so that the stock, which otherwise would have matured on 15 September 2004, will remain available for use with the securities lending facility which is being established by the AOFM (see Operational Notice 14/2004 of 27 August 2004).
Detailed procedures concerning the operation of the securities lending facility
will be released when the facility is in place.
