Operational Notice: Treasury Bond Issuance Calendar

19 November 2003

Op Notice No. 17/2003

Consistent with indications provided in the 2003-04 Commonwealth Government Budget, the AOFM is planning issuance of between $2 billion and $3 billion of Treasury Bonds in the 2003-04 financial year. Further issuance into the existing April 2015 Treasury Bond will be undertaken to ensure its volume is similar to other benchmark lines. It is also expected that a new long dated bond will be issued in the second half of 2003-04 with a term to maturity of around 13 years.
Treasury Bond issuance for the first half of the 2003-04 financial year has been completed. In this period three tenders for the issue of the April 2015 Treasury Bond totalling $900 million were conducted.

Four tenders of Treasury Bonds are planned for the second half of the 2003-04 financial year. At this stage issuance is planned for the following dates:

  • 20 January 2004;
  • 9 March 2004
  • 18 May 2004; and
  • 8 June 2004.

Tenders for Treasury Bonds will be confirmed at midday on the day prior to a scheduled tender.

It should be noted that the issuance calendar is indicative only and the Commonwealth reserves the right to amend the calendar at any time.
