Forthcoming Transactions

The Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM) plans to undertake the following transactions.

Treasury Bonds

In the week beginning 4 June 2018 a tender for the issue of a new 21 May 2030 bond line is planned to be held. Full details of the tender, and the coupon rate of the new bond will be announced on Friday, 1 June 2018.

No other Treasury Bond tenders will be held in the next fortnight.

Treasury Bond Buybacks

The next tender for the repurchase of Treasury Bonds is planned to be held on the same day as the tender for the new 21 May 2030 bond. The buyback tender will be for a lower volume than the issuance tender. Details will be announced on Friday, 1 June 2018.

The AOFM does not plan to conduct any further buyback tenders for the 3.25% 21 October 2018 or 5.25% 15 March 2019 Treasury Bond lines. The Reserve Bank of Australia may seek to purchase Treasury Bonds ahead of large maturities for liquidity management purposes. Interested parties can approach the Reserve Bank’s Domestic Markets Desk in open market operations or bilaterally with their offers, volume and rate. Details of these operations are online at http://www.rba.gov.au/mkt-operations/resources/tech-notes/open-market-operations.html#s3.
