News Release

For release: 22 January 2020

Issue of US$1,250,000,000 Fixed Rate

Subordinated Notes

Notice under section 708A(12H)(e) of the

Corporations Act 2001 (Cwlth)

Today Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ABN 11 005 357 522) ("Issuer") will issue US$1,250,000,000 fixed rate subordinated notes due July 2030 pursuant to its US$25,000,000,000 Medium-Term Notes Program (the "Subordinated Notes").

The Subordinated Notes convert into fully paid ordinary shares of the Issuer ("Ordinary Shares") where the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority determines this to be necessary on the grounds that the Issuer would otherwise become non-viable.

This notice is a cleansing notice prepared for the purposes of section 708A(12H)(e) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cwlth) ("Corporations Act") (as inserted by ASIC Corporations (Regulatory Capital Securities) Instrument 2016/71) to enable Ordinary Shares or Approved NOHC1 Ordinary Shares issued on conversion of the Subordinated Notes to be freely tradeable without further disclosure and includes:

  1. In Schedule 1, a description of the rights and liabilities attaching to the Subordinated Notes that has been extracted from the terms of the Subordinated Notes dated 22 January 2020;
  2. In Schedule 2, commercial particulars of the Subordinated Notes, extracted from the Pricing Supplement for the Subordinated Notes dated 14 January 2020; and
  3. In Schedule 3, a description of the rights and liabilities attaching to Ordinary Shares.

Words and expressions defined in Schedule 1 have the same meanings in the remainder of this cleansing notice unless the contrary intention appears.

The issue of Subordinated Notes by the Issuer will not have a material impact on the Issuer's financial position. If a Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs and the Issuer issues Ordinary Shares, the impact of Conversion on the Issuer would be to increase the Issuer's shareholders' equity. The number of Ordinary Shares issued on Conversion is limited to the Maximum Conversion Number. The Maximum Conversion Number is 57,903.8796 Ordinary Shares per Subordinated Note with a nominal value of US$200,000, based on the Issue Date VWAP2 of US$17.27.

  1. Non-operatingholding company. Refer to Schedule 1 for the meaning of "Approved NOHC Ordinary Shares" in the context of the Subordinated Notes.
  2. Average of the daily volume weighted average sale prices of ANZ ordinary shares. Refer to Schedule 1 for the meaning of "Issue Date VWAP" in the context of the Subordinated Notes.

As a disclosing entity, the Issuer is subject to regular reporting and disclosure obligations under the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules. Broadly, these obligations require the Issuer to prepare and lodge with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission ("ASIC") both yearly and half yearly financial statements and to report on its operations during the relevant accounting period, and to obtain an audit or review report from its auditor.

Copies of documents lodged with ASIC may be obtained from or inspected at an ASIC office.

The Issuer must ensure that the ASX is continuously notified of information about specific events and matters as they arise for the purposes of ASX making the information available to the Australian securities market. In this regard, the Issuer has an obligation under the ASX Listing Rules (subject to certain exceptions) to notify the ASX immediately of any information concerning it of which it becomes aware, which a reasonable person would expect to have a material effect on the price or value of its quoted securities.

The Issuer will provide a copy of any of the following documents free of charge to any person who requests a copy before the Subordinated Notes are issued:

  • any continuous disclosure notices given by the Issuer in the period after the lodgement of the annual financial report of the Issuer for the year ended 30 September 2019 and before the date of this notice;
  • the Issuer's consolidated financial report and dividend announcement for the full year ended 30 September 2019;
  • the Issuer's annual financial report for the year ended 30 September 2019; and

This Security is one of the series
    (this "series") designated on the face hereof, limited in aggregate Principal Amount to U.S.$25,000,000,000 (or the equivalent thereof in any other currency or currencies or currency units or composite currencies) outstanding at any one time (which amount may be increased at the option of the Issuer if in the future it determines that it may wish to sell additional Securities of this series).
    The Securities of this series are unsecured, direct, subordinated and general obligations of the Issuer and will rank in a Winding Up of the Issuer behind all claims of Other Creditors (as defined in Section 7), and, subject to Section 8A, pari passu with Equal Ranking Securities (as defined in Section 7) and ahead of Junior Ranking Securities (as defined in Section 7).

The Five-Year U.S. Treasury Rate determined in accordance with this Section 3(b) will be adjusted by the addition or subtraction of the Reset Spread, if any, specified on the face of this Security.

Payments of interest hereon with respect to any Interest Payment Date or at maturity will include interest accrued to but excluding such Interest Payment Date or such maturity date, as the case may be. Interest hereon shall be computed on the basis of a 360- day year of twelve 30-day months unless an Alternative Day Count Convention is specified on the face hereof.

If the maturity date or any earlier redemption date with respect to this Security falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment of principal, and interest otherwise due on such day will be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and no interest on such payment shall accrue for the period from and after such maturity date or redemption date, as the case may be.

Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof: "Business Day":

  1. for the purposes of Sections 8A.1 to 8A.4 and, if Option 1 (Section 8A.2) applies to this Security, Section 9A, means a day which is a business day within the meaning of the listing rules of the Australian Securities
    Exchange, or any successor ("ASX") as amended, varied or waived
    (whether in respect of the Issuer or generally) from time to time ("ASX Listing Rules"); and
  2. for all other purposes of this Security, means each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday that (i) is not a day on which banking institutions in The City of New York, the City of London or the City of Sydney, Australia generally are authorized or obligated by law, regulation or executive order to close, (ii) if the Specified Currency for any payment on this Security is other than U.S. dollars or euros, is not a day on which
    (Reverse of Security continued on next page)

banking institutions in the Principal Financial Center (as defined below) of the country issuing such Specified Currency generally are authorized or obligated by law, regulation or executive order to close, (iii) if the Specified Currency for any payment on this Security is euros, is a Euro Business Day (as defined below) and (iv) solely with respect to any payment or other action to be made or taken at any Place of Payment outside The City of New York, is a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday that is not a day on which banking institutions in such Place of Payment generally are authorized or obligated by law, regulation or executive order to close.

"Euro Business Day" means any day on which the Trans-European Automated Real-Time Gross Settlement Express Transfer (TARGET) System, or any successor system, is open for business.

"Five-YearU.S. Treasury Rate" means the interest rate (expressed as a percentage per annum) determined by the Calculation Agent to be the per annum rate equal to the yield to maturity for U.S. Treasury securities with a maturity of five years as published in the most recent H.15.

"H.15" means the daily statistical release designated as such, or any successor publication, published by the Board of Governors of the United States Federal

Reserve System available through their worldwide web site at http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h15/update, or any successor site or publication, that establishes yield on actively traded U.S. Treasury securities under the caption "Treasury constant maturities", and "most recent H.15" means the H.15 which includes a yield to maturity for U.S. Treasury securities with a maturity of five years published closest in time but prior to the Reset Determination Date.

References in this Security to "U.S. dollars" shall mean, as of any time, the coin or currency that is then legal tender for the payment of public and private debts in the United States of America.

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

References in this Security to the "euro" shall mean, as of any time, the coin or currency that is then legal tender for the payment of public and private debts in all EMU Countries. "EMU Countries" means, at any time, the countries then participating in the European Economic and Monetary Union (or any successor union) that, as of that time, have adopted a single currency pursuant to the Treaty on European Union of February 1992 (or any successor treaty), as it may be amended from time to time.

References in this Security to a particular currency other than U.S. dollars and euros shall mean, as of any time, the coin or currency that is then legal tender for the payment of public and private debts in the country issuing such currency on the Issue Date.

If the Specified Currency for any payment on this Security is other than U.S. dollars, the Issuer has initially appointed the institution named on the face of this Security as Exchange Rate Agent to act as such agent with respect to this Security, but the Issuer may, in its sole discretion, appoint any other institution (including any affiliate of the Issuer) to serve as such agent from time to time. The Issuer will give the Fiscal Agent prompt written notice of any change in any such appointment. Insofar as this Security provides for any such agent to obtain rates, quotes or other data from a bank, dealer or other institution for use in making any determination hereunder, such agent may do so from any institution or institutions of the kind contemplated hereby notwithstanding that any one or more of such institutions are any such agent, affiliates of any such agent or affiliates of the Issuer.

All determinations made by the Exchange Rate Agent may be made by such agent in its sole discretion and, absent manifest error, shall be conclusive for all purposes and binding on the holder of this Security and the Issuer. The Exchange Rate Agent shall not have any liability therefor.

4 The Issuer shall maintain in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, an office or agency where Securities of this series may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange. The Issuer has initially appointed the corporate trust office of the Fiscal Agent in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, as its agent (a "Transfer Agent") for such purpose and has agreed to cause to be kept at such office a register in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Issuer will provide for the registration of Securities and registration of transfers of Securities. The Issuer reserves the right to vary or terminate the appointment of the Fiscal Agent as security registrar or of any Transfer Agent or to appoint additional or other registrars or Transfer Agents or to approve any change in the office through which any security registrar or any Transfer Agent acts, provided that there will at all times be a security registrar in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The transfer of this Security is registrable on the aforementioned register upon surrender of this Security at the corporate trust office of the Fiscal Agent or any Transfer Agent duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Fiscal Agent duly executed by, the registered holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing. Upon such surrender of this Security for registration of transfer, the Issuer shall execute, and the Fiscal Agent shall authenticate and deliver, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Securities of like tenor and form, dated the date of authentication thereof, of an authorized denomination or authorized denominations and of a like aggregate Principal Amount.

At the option of the registered holder upon request confirmed in writing, Securities may be exchanged for Securities of an authorized denomination or authorized denominations and of a like tenor, form and aggregate Principal Amount upon surrender of the Securities to be exchanged at the office of any Transfer Agent or at the corporate trust office of the Fiscal Agent. Whenever any Securities are so surrendered for exchange, the Issuer shall execute, and the Fiscal Agent shall authenticate and deliver, the Securities which the registered holder making the exchange is entitled to receive. Any registration of transfer or exchange will be effected upon the Transfer Agent or the Fiscal Agent, as the case may be, being satisfied with the documents of title and identity of the person making the request and subject to such reasonable regulations as the Issuer may from time to time agree with the Transfer Agents and the Fiscal Agent.

In the event of a redemption of the Securities in part, the Issuer shall not be required (i) to register the transfer of or exchange any Security during a period beginning at the opening of business 15 calendar days before, and continuing until, the date notice is given identifying the Securities to be redeemed, or (ii) to register the transfer of or exchange any Security, or portion thereof, called for redemption.

All Securities issued upon any registration of transfer or exchange of Securities shall be the valid obligations of the Issuer, evidencing the same debt, and entitled to the same benefits, as the Securities surrendered upon such registration of transfer or exchange. No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange, but the Issuer may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith, other than an exchange in connection with a partial redemption of a Security not involving any registration of a transfer.

Prior to due presentment of this Security for registration of transfer, the Issuer, the Fiscal Agent and any agent of the Issuer or the Fiscal Agent may treat the person in whose name this Security is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Security be overdue, and neither the Issuer nor the Fiscal Agent or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

5 The Issuer shall pay to the Fiscal Agent at its principal corporate trust office in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, on or prior to each Interest Payment Date, any redemption date and the maturity date of this Security, in such amounts sufficient (with any amounts then held by the Fiscal Agent and available for the purpose) to pay the interest on, the redemption price of and accrued interest (if the redemption date is not an Interest Payment Date) on, and the principal of, the

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

Securities due and payable on such Interest Payment Date, redemption date or maturity date, as the case may be. The Fiscal Agent shall apply the amounts so paid to it to the payment of such interest, redemption price and principal in accordance with the terms of the Fiscal Agency Agreement and this Security.

Any monies paid by the Issuer to a Paying Agent for the payment of the principal of or interest on any Securities and remaining unclaimed at the end of two years after such principal or interest shall have become due and payable (whether at maturity, upon call for redemption or otherwise) shall then be repaid (without interest) to the Issuer, and upon such repayment all liability of the Fiscal Agent with respect thereto shall cease, without, however, limiting in any way any obligation the Issuer may have to pay the principal of and interest on this Security as the same shall become due.

6 (a) All payments of, or in respect of, principal of and interest on this Security will be made without withholding or deduction for, or on account of, any taxes, assessments or other governmental charges ("Relevant Tax") imposed or levied by or on behalf of Australia or any political subdivision or taxing authority in or of Australia and/or where the Issuer is acting through a branch, the jurisdiction in which the branch is located or any political subdivision or taxing authority in or of that jurisdiction (each a "Relevant Jurisdiction") unless the withholding or deduction is required by law. In that event, the Issuer will pay such additional amounts of, or in respect of, the principal of, and any interest on, this Security ("Additional Amounts") as will result (after deduction of such taxes, duties, assessments or governmental charges and any additional taxes, duties, assessments or governmental charges payable in respect of such Additional Amounts) in the payment to the holder of this Security of the amounts which would have been payable in respect of this Security had no such withholding or deduction been required, except that no Additional Amounts shall be payable:

to the extent that the Relevant Tax is imposed or levied by virtue of the holder, or the beneficial owner, of this Security having some connection (whether present, past or future) with a Relevant Jurisdiction, other than mere receipt of such payment or being a holder, or the beneficial owner, of this Security;

to the extent that the Relevant Tax is imposed or levied by virtue of the holder, or the beneficial owner, of this Security not complying with any statutory requirements or not having made a declaration of non-residence in, or lack of connection with, a Relevant Jurisdiction or any similar claim for exemption (including supplying an appropriate tax file number or Australian Business Number), if the Issuer, or any other agent of the Issuer, has provided a holder, or beneficial owner, of this Security with at least 60 days' prior written notice of an opportunity to comply with such statutory requirements or make a declaration or claim;

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

to the extent that the Relevant Tax is imposed or levied by virtue of a holder, or beneficial owner, of this Security having presented for payment more than 30 days after the date on which the payment in respect of this Security first became due and payable or the date on which payment thereof is duly provided for, whichever occurs later;

to the extent that the Relevant Tax is imposed or levied by virtue of a holder of this Security being an Offshore Associate of the Issuer (acting other than in the capacity of a clearing house, paying agent, custodian, funds manager or responsible entity of a registered scheme within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001 of Australia). "Offshore Associate" means an associate (as defined in section 128F of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 of Australia and successor legislation) of the Issuer that is either a non-resident of Australia which does not acquire this Security in carrying on a business at or through a permanent establishment in Australia or, alternatively, a resident of Australia that acquires this Security in carrying on business at or through a permanent establishment outside of Australia;

to the extent that the Relevant Tax is imposed or levied as a result of the holder being party to or participating in a scheme which had the dominant purpose of avoiding tax, being a scheme which the Issuer was neither a party to nor participated in;

to the extent that the Relevant Tax is imposed or levied by virtue of a holder, or the beneficial owner, of this Security having presented this Security for payment in a Relevant Jurisdiction, unless this Security could not have been presented for payment elsewhere; or

any combination of the above.

In addition, any amounts to be paid on this Security will be paid and any Ordinary Shares to be issued to a holder on Conversion of a Security will be issued to the holder, net of any deduction or withholding imposed or required pursuant to Sections 1471 through 1474 of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), any current or future regulations or official interpretations thereof, any agreement entered into pursuant to Section 1471(b) of the Code, or any fiscal or regulatory legislation, rules or practices adopted pursuant to any intergovernmental agreement entered into in connection with the implementation of such Sections of the Code (a "FATCA Withholding"), and no Additional Amounts will be required to be paid and no additional Ordinary Shares will be required to be issued on account of any such deduction or withholding.

  1. No Additional Amounts shall be paid with respect to any payment of, or in respect of, the principal of or interest on, this Security to any such holder who is a fiduciary or partnership or other than the sole beneficial owner of such payment to the

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

extent such payment would, under the laws of the Commonwealth of Australia or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein, be treated as being derived or received for tax purposes by a beneficiary or settlor with respect to such fiduciary or a member of such partnership or a beneficial owner who would not have been entitled to such Additional Amounts had it been the holder of this Security.

  1. Whenever in this Security there is mentioned, in any context, any payment of, or in respect of, the principal of or interest on, this Security, such mention shall be deemed to include mention of the payment of Additional Amounts provided for in Section 6(a) to the extent that, in such context, Additional Amounts are, were or would be payable in respect thereof pursuant to the provisions of such Section.
  2. At least 10 days prior to each date on which any payment under or with respect to this Security is due and payable, if the Issuer will be obligated to pay Additional Amounts with respect to such payment, the Issuer will deliver to the Fiscal
    Agent and the Paying Agent an Officer's Certificate (as hereinafter defined) stating the fact that such Additional Amounts will be payable and the amounts so payable and will set forth such other information necessary to enable the Fiscal Agent and such Paying Agent to pay such Additional Amounts to the holders on the payment date; provided, however, that if 10 days prior to each date on which any such payment is due and payable the amount of such payment has not yet been determined, the Issuer shall notify the Fiscal Agent of such amount promptly after such amount has been determined.

7 (a) Prior to the commencement of a Winding Up of the Issuer (as hereinafter defined) (i) the obligations of the Issuer to make any payment of the principal of and interest on or any other amounts (including Additional Amounts) payable in respect of this Security shall be conditional upon the Issuer being Solvent (as hereinafter defined) at the time the obligation to make such payment falls due and

  1. no payment of principal, interest, Additional Amounts or any other amount payable in respect of this Security shall be made in respect of this Security except to the extent that the Issuer may make any such payment and still be Solvent immediately thereafter.

For the purposes of this Section 7, the Issuer shall be considered to be "Solvent" if (A) the Issuer is able to pay all its debts as and when they become due and payable and (B) the Issuer's assets exceed its liabilities, in each case determined on an unconsolidated stand-alone basis. A certificate as to whether the Issuer is Solvent signed by two authorised officers of the Issuer, an auditor of the Issuer or, if the Issuer is being wound up, its liquidator, shall be conclusive evidence of the information contained therein in the absence of willful default, bad faith or manifest error. Neither the Fiscal Agent nor any Paying Agent is obliged to obtain any such certificate prior to any due date for payment of any amount in respect of this Security or at any other time. In the absence of such a certificate, the Fiscal Agent, each Paying Agent and the holder of this Security shall be entitled to assume (unless the contrary is proved) that the Issuer is Solvent and will be Solvent immediately after any payment referred to above is made.

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

  1. On the Winding-Up of the Issuer, the rights and claims of the holder of this Security against the Issuer to recover any sums payable in respect of this Security shall be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the obligations of the Issuer to Other Creditors (as hereinafter defined), to the extent that all obligations of the Issuer to Other Creditors shall be entitled to be paid in full prior to any payment of the principal of or interest on or any other amounts (including Additional Amounts) payable in respect of this Security and, subject to Section 8A, shall rank pari passu with Equal Ranking Securities and ahead of Junior Ranking Securities.
  2. If there is a Winding Up in respect of the Issuer and, notwithstanding paragraph (b) above, the Fiscal Agent, the Paying Agent or the holder of this Security receives any payment or distribution of the assets of the Issuer of any kind or character, whether in cash, property or securities, including any such payment or distribution which may be payable or deliverable by reason of the payment of any other indebtedness of the Issuer being subordinated to the payment of this Security, before all the claims of Other Creditors are paid in full or payment thereof is duly provided for, and if such fact shall, at or prior to the time of such payment or distribution, have been made known to the Fiscal Agent, the Paying Agent or, as the case may be, the holder of this Security, then and in such event such payment or distribution shall be paid over or delivered forthwith to the trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidating trustee, custodian, assignee, agent or other person making payment or distribution of assets of the Issuer for application to the payment of all claims of the Other Creditors remaining unpaid, to the extent necessary to pay all such claims in full, after giving effect to any concurrent payment or distribution to or for the account of the Other Creditors.
  3. Neither the Issuer nor a holder of this Security has any contractual right to set off any sum at any time due and payable to a holder or the Issuer (as applicable) under or in relation to this Security against amounts owing by the holder to the Issuer or by the Issuer to the holder (as applicable).
  4. On a Winding Up of the Issuer, the holder of this Security shall only be entitled to prove for any sums payable in respect of this Security as a debt which is subject to and contingent upon prior payment in full of the obligations of the Issuer to the Other Creditors, and the holder of this Security waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any right to prove in the Winding Up as a creditor of the Issuer ranking for payment in any other manner.
  5. The provisions of this Section shall not affect or prejudice the payment of any amounts by the Issuer in respect of costs, charges, expenses, liabilities, indemnities or remuneration of the Fiscal Agent or any Paying Agent pursuant to the Fiscal Agency Agreement or the rights and remedies of the Fiscal Agent or the Paying Agent in respect thereof.
  6. For the purposes of this Section 7, "Other Creditors" means all present and future creditors of the Issuer (including but not limited to depositors of the

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

Issuer) whose claims (i) would be entitled to be admitted in the Winding Up of the Issuer and (ii) are not in respect of Equal Ranking Securities or Junior Ranking Securities.

  1. For the purposes of this Section 7 and Section 9, "Winding Up" shall mean any procedure whereby the Issuer may be wound-up, dissolved, liquidated or cease to exist as a body corporate whether brought or instigated by a holder of this Security or any other person and whether or not involving insolvency or bankruptcy, but shall exclude any Winding Up under or in connection with a scheme of amalgamation or reconstruction not involving our bankruptcy or insolvency where the obligations of the Issuer are assumed by a successor to which all, or substantially all, of the property, assets and undertaking of the Issuer are transferred or where an arrangement with similar effect not involving a bankruptcy or insolvency is implemented.
  2. For the purposes of this Section 7, "Equal Ranking Securities" means any present or future instrument that ranks in a Winding Up of the Issuer as the most junior claim in the Winding Up of the Issuer ranking senior to Junior Ranking Securities, and includes (i) the Perpetual Capital Floating Rate Notes issued under the trust deed dated 30 October 1986 between the Issuer and Bankers Trustee Company Limited, as amended from time to time (except in so far as such amendment is inconsistent with such ranking) and (ii) any other instruments issued after 1 January 2013 as Relevant Tier 2 Securities (as defined in Section 8A.4).
  3. For the purposes of this Section 7, "Junior Ranking Securities" means any present or future instrument that (i) qualifies as Tier 1 Capital and (ii) by its terms is, or is expressed to be, subordinated in a Winding Up of the Issuer to the claims of holders of the Securities of this series and other Equal Ranking Securities.
  4. Any amount not paid due to Section 7(a) or Section 9(d), remains a debt owing to the holder of this Security by the Issuer until it is paid and will be payable on the first date on which payment can be made in compliance with the relevant Section.

8 (a) If specified on the face of this Security and subject to the prior written approval of Australian Prudential Regulation Authority ("APRA") having been obtained, the Securities of this series may be redeemed, as a whole but not in part, at the option of the Issuer, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the Principal Amount of the Securities to be redeemed together with interest accrued to the date fixed for redemption, if a Regulatory Event occurs, provided, however, that (1) the Issuer shall deliver to the holder of this Security an opinion of counsel confirming that the conditions that must be satisfied for such redemption have occurred and (2) the Issuer will not be permitted to redeem this Security unless the Security is replaced concurrently or beforehand with Regulatory Capital of the same or better quality and the replacement of the Security is done under conditions that are sustainable for the Issuer's income capacity or APRA is satisfied that the Issuer's capital position at Level 1, Level 2 and, if applicable, Level 3 (each as defined in Section 8A.4 below) is well above its minimum capital requirements after the

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

Issuer elects to redeem this Security. Immediately prior to the giving of any notice of redemption of Securities pursuant to this subsection (a), the Issuer will deliver to the Fiscal Agent an Officer's Certificate stating that the Issuer is entitled to effect such redemption and setting forth in reasonable detail a statement of facts showing that the conditions precedent to the right of the Issuer to so redeem the Securities have occurred.

For the purposes of this Security, "Regulatory Event" shall mean the receipt by the directors of the Issuer of (x) an opinion from a reputable legal counsel that as a result of any amendment to, clarification of or change (including any announcement of a change that has been or will be introduced) in, any law or regulation in any Relevant Jurisdiction, or any official administrative pronouncement or action or judicial decision interpreting or applying such laws or regulations, which amendment, clarification or change is effective, or pronouncement, action or decision is announced, after the Issue Date or (y) an official written statement from APRA that, in each case, the Issuer is not or will not be entitled to treat all Securities of a series as Tier 2 Capital (as defined in Section 8A.4), provided that, in each case, on the Issue Date, the Issuer did not expect that matters giving rise to the Regulatory Event would occur.

For the purposes of this Security, "Regulatory Capital" shall mean a Tier 1 Capital Security or a Tier 2 Capital Security.

  1. If specified on the face of this Security and subject to the prior written approval of APRA having been obtained, the Securities of this series may be redeemed, as a whole but not in part, at the option of the Issuer, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the Principal Amount of the Securities to be redeemed, together with interest accrued to the date fixed for redemption, if, as a result of any amendment to, or change in, the laws or regulations of a Relevant Jurisdiction, or any amendment to or change in an official interpretation or application of such laws or regulations, which amendment or change is effective after the Issue Date and which amendment or change the Issuer did not expect as of the Issue Date, the Issuer will become obligated to pay Additional Amounts (as provided in Section 6(a) hereof), and such obligation cannot be avoided within 60 days of such tax event by the Issuer by filing a form, making an election or taking some reasonable measure that in the Issuer's sole judgment will not be adverse to the Issuer and will involve no material cost to the Issuer, provided, however, that (1) the Issuer shall deliver to the holder of this Security an opinion of counsel confirming that the conditions that must be satisfied for such redemption have occurred; and (2) the Issuer will not be permitted to redeem this Security unless the Security is replaced concurrently or beforehand with Regulatory Capital (as defined above) of the same or better quality and the replacement of the Security is done under conditions that are sustainable for the Issuer's income capacity or APRA is satisfied that the Issuer's capital position at Level 1, Level 2 and, if applicable, Level 3 is well above its minimum capital requirements after the Issuer elects to redeem this Security. Immediately prior to the giving of any notice of redemption of Securities pursuant to this subsection (b), the Issuer will deliver to the Fiscal Agent an
    Officer's Certificate stating that the Issuer is entitled to effect such redemption and setting

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

forth in reasonable detail a statement of facts showing that the conditions precedent to the right of the Issuer to so redeem the Securities have occurred.

  1. If this section is specified as applicable on the face hereof, this Security is subject to redemption, on the Optional Redemption Date, as a whole but not in part, at the option of the Issuer (but subject to the prior written approval of APRA having been obtained and provided that the Issuer will not be permitted to redeem this Security unless the Security is replaced concurrently or beforehand with Regulatory Capital of the same or better quality and the replacement of the Security is done under conditions that are sustainable for the Issuer's income capacity or APRA is satisfied that the Issuer's capital position at Level 1, Level 2 and, if applicable, Level 3 is well above its minimum capital requirements after the Issuer elects to redeem this Security), at the Redemption Price specified on the face hereof (expressed as a percentage of the Principal Amount of this Security), together in the case of any such redemption with accrued interest (unless such date is an Interest Payment Date) to the Optional Redemption Date (but interest installments due on or prior to the Optional Redemption Date will be payable to the holder of record of this Security at the close of business on the relevant record dates).
  2. In the case of any partial redemption of Securities, the Issuer will give the holder written notice of the Principal Amount of the Securities to be redeemed not less than 30 days nor more than 60 days prior to the Redemption Date unless otherwise specified on the face hereof for the Outstanding Securities of a like tenor not previously called for redemption, by such method as the Fiscal Agent shall deem fair and appropriate and which may provide for the selection for redemption of portions equal to at least the minimum authorized denomination of such Securities.
  3. Notices to redeem Securities shall be given in writing mailed, first- class postage prepaid, to each holder of Securities at his address as it appears in the register hereinabove referred to. Such notice will be given once not more than 60 days nor less than 30 days prior to the date fixed for redemption. If by reason of the suspension of regular mail service, or by reason of any other cause, it shall be impracticable to give notice to the holders of Securities in the manner prescribed herein, then such notification in lieu thereof as shall be made by the Issuer or by the Fiscal Agent on behalf of and at the instruction of the Issuer shall constitute sufficient provision of such notice, if such notification shall, so far as may be practicable, approximate the terms and conditions of the mailed notice in lieu of which it is given. Neither the failure to give notice nor any defect in any notice given to any particular holder of a Security shall affect the sufficiency of any notice with respect to that holder or any other holders. Such notices will be deemed to have been given on the date of such mailing. Notices to redeem Securities shall specify the date fixed for redemption, the applicable redemption price, the place or places of payment, that payment will be made upon presentation and surrender of the Securities to be redeemed (or portion thereof in the case of a partial redemption), that interest accrued to the date fixed for redemption (unless such date is an Interest Payment Date) will be paid as specified in said notice, and that on and after said date interest thereon will cease to accrue. If the redemption is pursuant to Section 8(a) or Section 8(b) hereof, such notice

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

shall also state that the conditions precedent to such redemption have occurred and state that the Issuer has elected to exercise its option to redeem the Securities pursuant to Section 8(a) or Section 8(b), as the case may be.

  1. Any Security which is to be redeemed only in part shall be surrendered with, if the Issuer or the Fiscal Agent so requires, due endorsement by, or a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Fiscal Agent duly executed by, the holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, and the Issuer shall execute, and the Fiscal Agent shall authenticate and deliver to the registered holder of such Security without service charge, a new Security or Securities of like form and tenor, of any aggregate Principal Amount equal to and in exchange for the unredeemed portion of the principal of the Registered Security so surrendered.
  2. The Issuer and any of its Related Entities (as defined in Section 8A.4) may, to the extent permitted by applicable laws and regulations, at any time purchase this Security in the open market or otherwise, provided that the Issuer may not purchase, or procure that any of its Related Entities purchase, any Security without the prior written consent of APRA.

Holders of this Security should not expect that APRA's approval will be given for any redemption or purchase of this Security.

8A.1 A "Non-ViabilityTrigger Event" means the earlier of:

  1. the issuance to the Issuer of a written determination from APRA that conversion or write-off of Relevant Securities is necessary because, without it, APRA considers that the Issuer would become non-viable; or
  2. a determination by APRA, notified to the Issuer in writing, that without a public sector injection of capital, or equivalent support, the Issuer would become non- viable,

each such determination being a "Non-ViabilityDetermination".

8A.2 OPTION 1: CONVERSION WITH A FALL BACK TO WRITE-OFF

  1. If a Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs:

on the Trigger Event Date, subject only to subsection (e) of this Section 8A.2, such Principal Amount of the Securities will immediately Convert as is required by the Non-Viability Determination provided that:

  1. where the Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs under Section 8A.1(a) and such Non-Viability Determination does not require all Relevant Securities to be converted into Ordinary Shares or written- off, such Principal Amount of the Securities shall Convert as is

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

sufficient (determined by the Issuer in accordance with subsection (a)(ii) of this Section 8A.2) to satisfy APRA that the Issuer is viable without further conversion or write-off; and

  1. where the Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs under Section 8A.1(b), all the Principal Amount of the Securities will immediately Convert;

the Issuer will determine the Principal Amount of Securities which must be Converted in accordance with subsection (a)(i)(A) of this Section 8A.2, on the following basis:

  1. first, convert into Ordinary Shares or write-off all Relevant Tier 1 Securities; and
  2. secondly, if conversion into Ordinary Shares or write-off of all Relevant Tier 1 Securities is not sufficient to satisfy the requirements of subsection (a)(i)(A) of this Section 8A.2 (and provided that as a result of the conversion or write-off of Relevant Tier 1 Capital Securities APRA has not withdrawn the Non- Viability Determination), Convert a Principal Amount of Securities and convert into Ordinary Shares or write-off a number or principal amount of other Relevant Tier 2 Securities on an approximately pro-rata basis or in a manner that is otherwise, in the opinion of the Issuer, fair and reasonable (subject to such adjustment as the Issuer may determine to take into account the effect on marketable parcels and the need to round to whole numbers the number of Ordinary Shares and the authorized denominations of the Principal Amount of any Securities or the number or principal amount of other Relevant Tier 2 Securities remaining on issue, and the need to effect the conversion immediately) and, for the purposes of the foregoing, where the specified currency of the principal amount of Relevant Tier 2 Securities is not the same for all Relevant Tier 2 Securities, the Issuer may treat them as if converted into a single currency of the Issuer's choice at such rate of exchange as the Issuer in good faith considers reasonable,

provided that such determination does not impede or delay the immediate Conversion of the relevant Principal Amount of Securities;

on the Trigger Event Date, the Issuer shall determine the Securities or portions thereof as to which the Conversion is to take effect and in making that determination may make any decisions with respect to the identity of the holders of Securities at that time as may be necessary or desirable to ensure Conversion occurs in an orderly manner, including disregarding any

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

transfers of Securities that have not been settled or registered at that time, provided that such determination does not impede or delay the immediate Conversion of the relevant Principal Amount of Securities;

the Issuer must give notice of its determination pursuant to subsection (a)(iii) of this Section 8A.2 (a "Trigger Event Notice") as soon as practicable to the Fiscal Agent and holders of Securities, which must specify:

  1. the Trigger Event Date;
  2. the Principal Amount of the Securities Converted; and
  3. the relevant number or principal amount of other Relevant Securities converted or written-off;

none of the following events shall prevent, impede or delay the Conversion of Securities as required by subsection (a)(i) of this Section 8A.2:

  1. any failure or delay in the conversion or write-off of other Relevant Securities;
  2. any failure or delay in giving a Trigger Event Notice; and
  3. any failure or delay in quotation of Ordinary Shares to be issued on Conversion; and

on and from the Trigger Event Date, subject to Sections 8A.2(e) and 8A.2(f)(iii)(C), the Issuer shall treat the holder of any Security or portion thereof which is required to be Converted as the holder of the relevant number of Ordinary Shares and will take all such steps, including updating any register, required to record the Conversion and the issuance of such Ordinary Shares.

  1. Where a Principal Amount of Securities is required to be Converted under this Section 8A.2, a holder of Securities or portion thereof that are subject to Conversion wishing to receive Ordinary Shares must, no later than the Trigger Event Date (or, in the case where Section 8A.2(d)(vii) applies, within 30 days of the date on which Ordinary Shares are issued upon such Conversion), have provided to the Issuer:

its name and address (or the name and address of any person in whose name it directs the Ordinary Shares to be issued) for entry into any register of title and receipt of any certificate or holding statement in respect of any Ordinary Shares;

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

the security account details of such holder of Securities in CHESS (being the Clearing House Electronic Subregister System of Australia operated by the ASX or its affiliates or successors) or such other account to which the Ordinary Shares may be credited; and

such other information as is reasonably requested by the Issuer for the purposes of enabling it to issue the Conversion Number of Ordinary Shares to the holder of Securities,

and the Issuer has no duty to seek or obtain such information.

  1. Subject to Section 8A.2(d) and Section 8A.2(e), if, in respect of a Conversion of Securities, the Issuer fails to issue, on the Trigger Event Date, the Conversion Number of Ordinary Shares in respect of the relevant Principal Amount of such Securities to, or in accordance with the instructions of, the relevant holder of Securities on the Trigger Event Date or any other nominee where Section 8A.2(d) applies, the Principal Amount of such Securities which would otherwise be subject to Conversion shall remain on issue and outstanding until:

the Ordinary Shares are issued to, or in accordance with the instructions of, the holder of such Securities; or

such Securities are Written-Off in accordance with the terms hereof;

provided, however, that the sole right of the holder of Securities in respect of Securities or portion thereof that are subject to Conversion is its right to be issued Ordinary Shares upon Conversion (subject to its compliance with Section 8A.2(b) or to receive the proceeds from their sale pursuant to Section 8A.2(d), as applicable) and the remedy of such holder in respect of the Issuer's failure to issue the Ordinary Shares is limited (subject always to Section 8A.2(e)) to seeking an order for specific performance of the Issuer's obligation to issue the Ordinary Shares to the Holder or where Section 8A.2(d) applies to the nominee and to receive such proceeds of sale, in each case, in accordance with the terms of the Securities. This Section 8A.2(c) does not affect the obligation of the Issuer to issue the Ordinary Shares when required in accordance with the terms hereof.

  1. If, in respect of a Security and a holder of that Security, the Security or portion thereof is required to be Converted and:

the holder of the Security has notified the Issuer that it does not wish to receive Ordinary Shares as a result of the Conversion (whether entirely or to the extent specified in the notice), which notice may be given at any time prior to the Trigger Event Date;

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

the Securities are held by a registered holder of the Security whose address in the register is a place outside Australia or who the Issuer otherwise believes may not be a resident of Australia (a "Foreign Holder");

the holder of that Security is a Clearing System Holder;

for any reason (whether or not due to the fault of the holder of the Security) the Issuer has not received the information required by subsection (b) of this Section 8A.2 prior to the Trigger Event Date and the lack of such information would prevent the Issuer from issuing the Ordinary Shares to the holder of the Security on the Trigger Event Date; or

a FATCA Withholding is required to be made in respect of the Ordinary Shares issued on the Conversion,

then, on the Trigger Event Date:

where subsection (d)(i), (d)(ii) or (d)(v) of this Section 8A.2 applies, the Issuer shall issue the Ordinary Shares to the holder of the Security only to the extent (if at all) that:

  1. where subsection (d)(i) of this Section 8A.2 applies, the holder of the Security has notified the Issuer that it wishes to receive them;
  2. where subsection (d)(ii) of this Section 8A.2 applies, the Issuer is satisfied that the laws of both the Commonwealth of Australia and the Foreign Holder's country of residence permit the issue of
    Ordinary Shares to the Foreign Holder (but as to which the Issuer is not bound to enquire), either unconditionally or after compliance with conditions which the Issuer in its absolute discretion regards as acceptable and not unduly onerous; and
  3. where subsection (d)(v) of this Section 8A.2 applies, the issue is net of the FATCA Withholding;

and, to the extent the Issuer is not obliged to issue Ordinary Shares to the holder of the Security, the Issuer will issue the balance of the Ordinary Shares to the nominee in accordance with subsection (d)(vii);

otherwise, subject to applicable law, the Issuer will issue the balance of Ordinary Shares in respect of the holder of the Security to a competent nominee (which may not be the Issuer or any of its Related Entities) and will promptly notify such holder of the name of and contact information for the nominee and the number of Ordinary Shares issued to the nominee on its behalf and, subject to applicable law and:

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

  1. subject to subsection (d)(vii)(B) of this Section 8A.2, the nominee will as soon as reasonably possible and no later than 35 days after issue of the Ordinary Shares sell those Ordinary Shares and pay a cash amount equal to the net proceeds received, after deducting any applicable brokerage, stamp duty and other taxes and charges, to the holder of the Security;
  2. where subsection (d)(iii) or (d)(iv) of this Section 8A.2 applies, the nominee will hold such Ordinary Shares and will transfer Ordinary Shares to such holder (or, where paragraph (d)(iii) applies, the person for whom the Clearing System Holder holds the Security) promptly after such person provides the nominee with the information required to be provided by such holder under Section 8A.2(b) (as if a reference in Section 8A.2(b) to the Issuer is a reference to the nominee and a reference to the issue of Ordinary Shares is a reference to the transfer of Ordinary Shares) but only where such information is provided to the nominee within 30 days of the date on which Ordinary Shares are issued to the nominee upon Conversion of such Security and failing which the nominee will sell the Ordinary Shares and pay the proceeds to such person in accordance with subsection (d)(vii)(A) of this Section 8A.2; and
  3. where subsection (d)(v) of this Section 8A.2 applies, the nominee shall deal with Ordinary Shares the subject of a FATCA Withholding and any proceeds of their disposal in accordance with
    FATCA;

nothing in this subsection (d) shall affect the Conversion of the Securities of a holder who is not a person to which any of subsections (d)(i) to (d)(v) (inclusive) of this Section 8A.2 applies; and

for the purpose of this Section 8A.2(d), neither the Issuer nor the nominee owes any obligations or duties to the holders in relation to the price at which Ordinary Shares are sold or has any liability for any loss suffered by a holder as a result of the sale of Ordinary Shares.

  1. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 8A.2, where Securities are required to be Converted on the Trigger Event Date and Conversion of the relevant Principal Amount of the Securities that are subject to Conversion has not been effected within 5 Business Days after the relevant Trigger Event Date for any reason (including an Inability Event), (A) the Principal Amount of each Security which, but for this subsection (e), would be Converted, will not be Converted and instead will be Written-Off with effect on and from the Trigger Event Date and (B) the Issuer shall notify the Fiscal Agent and the holders of the Securities of the foregoing as promptly as practically possible.

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

  1. Each holder of Securities irrevocably:

consents to becoming a member of the Issuer upon the Conversion of the relevant Principal Amount of the Securities as required by this Section 8A.2 and agrees to be bound by the constitution of the Issuer, in each case in respect of the Ordinary Shares issued to such holder on Conversion;

acknowledges and agrees that it is obliged to accept Ordinary Shares upon a Conversion of the Securities it holds notwithstanding anything that might otherwise affect a Conversion of such Principal Amount of Securities including:

  1. any change in the financial position of the Issuer since the issue of such Securities;
  2. any disruption to the market or potential market for the Ordinary Shares or to capital markets generally; or
  3. any breach by the Issuer of any obligation in connection with such Securities;

acknowledges and agrees that where Section 8A.2(a) applies:

  1. there are no other conditions to a Non-Viability Trigger Event occurring as and when provided in Section 8A.1;
  2. Conversion must occur immediately on the occurrence of a Non- Viability Trigger Event and that may result in disruption or failures in trading or dealings in the Securities;
  3. it will not have any rights to vote in respect of any Conversion and the Security does not confer a right to vote at any meeting of members of the Issuer; and
  4. the Ordinary Shares issued on Conversion may not be quoted at the time of issue, or at all;

acknowledges and agrees that where Section 8A.2(e) applies, no conditions or events will affect the operation of that Section and such holder will not have any rights to vote in respect of any Write-Off under that Section and has no claim against the Issuer arising in connection with the application of that Section;

acknowledges and agrees that such holder has no right to request a Conversion of any Principal Amount of any Securities or to determine

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

whether (or in what circumstances) the Principal Amount of Securities it holds are Converted; and

acknowledges and agrees that none of the following shall prevent, impede or delay the Conversion or (where relevant) Write-Off of the Principal Amount of Securities:

    1. any failure to or delay in the conversion or write-off of other Relevant Securities;
    2. any failure or delay in giving a Trigger Event Notice or other notice required by this Section 8A.2;
    3. any failure or delay in quotation of the Ordinary Shares to be issued on Conversion;
    4. any failure or delay by a holder of a Security or any other party in complying with the provisions of Section 8A.2(h); and
    5. any requirement to select or adjust the number or Principal Amount of Securities to be Converted in accordance with Section 8A.2(a)(ii)(B) or 8A.2(a)(iii).
  1. For the purposes of this Section 8A.2 "Written-Off" shall mean that, in respect of a Security or portion thereof that is otherwise subject to Conversion and a Trigger Event Date:

the Security or portion thereof that is otherwise subject to Conversion will not be Converted on that date and will not be Converted or redeemed under the terms hereof on any subsequent date; and

with effect on and from the Trigger Event Date, the rights of the relevant holder of the Security or portion thereof (including any right to receive any payment thereunder including payments of principal and interest both in the future and accrued but unpaid as at the Trigger Event Date) in relation to such Security or portion thereof are immediately and irrevocably terminated and written-off; and

"Write-Off" has a corresponding meaning.

  1. Subject to Section 9A.1(c)(ii), any Security which is to be Converted or Written- Off only in part shall be surrendered with, if the Issuer or the Fiscal Agent so requires, due endorsement by, or a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Fiscal Agent duly executed by, the holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, and the Issuer shall execute, and the Fiscal Agent shall authenticate and deliver to the registered holder of such Security

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

without service charge, a new Security or Securities of this series of like form and tenor, of any aggregate Principal Amount equal to and in exchange for the non- Converted or non-Written-Off portion of the Principal Amount of the Security so surrendered.

  1. If a Non-Viability Determination takes effect, the Issuer must perform the obligations in respect of the determination immediately on the day it is received by the Issuer, whether or not such day is a Business Day.
  2. Where a Security is Converted or Written-Off only in part, then the amount of interest payable in respect of that Security on each Interest Payment Date falling after that Trigger Event Date will be reduced and calculated on the Principal Amount of that Security as reduced on the date of the Conversion or Write-Off.

8A.3 OPTION 2: WRITE-OFF

  1. If a Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs:

on the Trigger Event Date, such Principal Amount of the Securities will immediately be Written-Off as is required by the Non-Viability Determination provided that:

  1. where the Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs under Section 8A.1(a) and such Non-Viability Determination does not require all Relevant Securities to be converted into Ordinary Shares or written- off, such Principal Amount of the Securities shall be immediately Written-Off as is sufficient (determined by the Issuer in accordance with subsection (a)(ii) of this Section 8A.3) to satisfy APRA that the Issuer is viable without further conversion or write-off; and
  2. where the Non-Viability Trigger Event occurs under Section 8A.1(b), all the Principal Amount of the Securities will immediately be Written-Off;

the Issuer will determine the Principal Amount of Securities which must be Written-Off in accordance with subsection (a)(i)(A) of this Section 8A.3, on the following basis:

  1. first, convert into Ordinary Shares or write-off all Relevant Tier 1 Securities; and
  2. secondly, if conversion into Ordinary Shares or write-off of those Relevant Tier 1 Securities is not sufficient to satisfy the requirements of subsection (a)(i)(A) of this Section 8A.3 (and provided that as a result of the conversion or write-off of Relevant Tier 1 Capital Securities APRA has not withdrawn the Non-

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

Viability Determination), Write-Off a Principal Amount of Securities and convert into Ordinary Shares or write-off other Relevant Tier 2 Securities on an approximately pro-rata basis or in a manner that is otherwise, in the opinion of the Issuer, fair and reasonable and, for the purposes of the foregoing, where the specified currency of the principal amount of Relevant Tier 2 Securities is not the same for all Relevant Tier 2 Securities, the Issuer may treat them as if converted into a single currency of the Issuer's choice at such rate of exchange as the Issuer in good faith considers reasonable,

provided that such determination does not impede or delay the immediate Write- Off of the relevant Principal Amount of Securities;

  1. on the Trigger Event Date, the Issuer shall determine the Securities or portions thereof as to which the Write-Off is to take effect and in making that determination may make any decisions with respect to the identity of the holders of Securities at that time as may be necessary or desirable to ensure Write-Off occurs in an orderly manner, including disregarding any transfers of Securities that have not been settled or registered at that time, provided that such determination does not impede or delay the immediate Write-Off of the relevant Principal Amount of Securities;
  2. the Issuer must give notice of its determination pursuant to subsection (b) of this Section 8A.3 (a "Trigger Event Notice") as soon as practicable to the Fiscal Agent and the holders of Securities, which must specify:

the Principal Amount of the Securities Written-Off ; and

the relevant number or principal amount of other Relevant Securities converted or written-off;

  1. none of the following events shall prevent, impede or delay the Write-Off of Securities as required by subsection (a)(i) of this Section 8A.3:

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

    1. any failure or delay by a holder of a Security or any other party in complying with the provisions of Section 8A.3(g).
  1. Each holder of Securities irrevocably:
    1. acknowledges and agrees that no conditions or events will affect the operation of this Section and such holder of Securities will not have any rights to vote in respect of any 8A.3 Write-Off under this Section; and
    2. acknowledges and agrees that any failure or delay in Writing-Off a Security held by the holder pursuant to the provisions of Section 8A.3(g), shall not prevent, impede or delay the Write-Off of such Security.
  2. For the purposes of this Section 8A.3 "Written-Off" shall mean that, in respect of a Security or portion thereof and a Trigger Event Date:

the Security or portion thereof will not be redeemed under the terms hereof on any subsequent date; and

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

apply (with any necessary changes) to the determination of the number of such Approved NOHC Ordinary Shares; and

If there is delivered to the Issuer and the Fiscal Agent (i) evidence to their satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Security and (ii) such security or indemnity as may be required by them to save each of them and any agent of each of them harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Issuer or the Fiscal Agent that such Security has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, the Issuer shall execute, and upon its request the Fiscal Agent shall authenticate and deliver, in lieu of any such destroyed, lost or stolen Security a new Security of like form, tenor and Principal Amount and bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding.

Upon the issuance of any new Security under this Section 12, the Issuer may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other reasonable expenses (including the fees and the expenses of the Fiscal Agent) connected therewith.

Every new Security issued pursuant to this Section 12 in lieu of any mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Security, shall constitute an original additional contractual obligation of the Issuer, whether or not the mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Security shall be at any time enforceable by anyone.

Schedule A

SCHEDULE OF CONVERSION MECHANICS

1 CONVERSION

If the Issuer must Convert a Principal Amount of a Security in accordance with the terms hereof, then, subject to this Schedule A and Section 9A.1 and unless the Addendum specifies that the Alternative Conversion Number applies, the following provisions apply:

  1. the Issuer will allot and issue on the Trigger Event Date a number of Ordinary Shares in respect of the Principal Amount of that Security equal to the Conversion Number, where the Conversion Number (but subject to the Conversion Number being no more than the Maximum Conversion Number) is a number calculated according to the following formula:

Principal Amount

Conversion Number =

=

(99% × VWAP)

where:

"VWAP" (expressed in dollars and cents or equivalent in the case of a Specified Currency other than Australian dollars) means the VWAP during the VWAP Period and where the "Maximum Conversion Number" means a number calculated according to the following formula:

Maximum Conversion

=

Principal Amount

= Number

Issue Date VWAP × 0.2

  1. on the Trigger Event Date, the rights of each holder of a Security (including to payment of interest with respect to such Principal Amount, both in the future and as accrued but unpaid as at the Trigger Event Date) in relation to each Security or portion thereof that is being Converted will be immediately and irrevocably terminated for an amount equal to the Principal Amount of that Security that is being Converted and the Issuer will apply that Principal Amount by way of payment for subscription for the Ordinary Shares to be allotted and issued under Section 1(a) of this Schedule A. Each holder of the Security is taken to have irrevocably directed that any amount payable under Section 1 of this Schedule A is to be applied as provided for in Section 1 of this Schedule A and no holder of the Security has any right to payment in any other way;
  2. any calculation under Section 1(a) of this Schedule A shall be, unless the context requires otherwise, be rounded to four decimal places provided

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

that if the total number of additional Ordinary Shares to be allotted to a holder of the Security in respect of the aggregate Principal Amount of the Securities it holds which is being Converted includes a fraction of an Ordinary Share, that fraction of an Ordinary Share will be disregarded; and

  1. the rights attaching to Ordinary Shares issued as a result of Conversion do not take effect until 5.00pm (Melbourne, Australia time) on the Trigger Event Date (unless another time is required for Conversion on that date). At that time all other rights conferred or restrictions imposed on that Security under the terms hereof will no longer have effect to the extent of the Principal Amount of that Security being Converted (except for the right to receive the Ordinary Shares as set forth in this Section 1 of this Schedule A and Section 8A.2 and except for rights relating to interest which is payable but has not been paid on or before the Trigger Event Date which will continue).

2 ADJUSTMENTS TO VWAP

For the purposes of calculating VWAP in the terms hereof:

  1. where, on some or all of the Business Days in the relevant VWAP Period, Ordinary Shares have been quoted on the ASX as cum dividend or cum any other distribution or entitlement and the relevant Principal Amount of the Securities will Convert into Ordinary Shares after the date those Ordinary Shares no longer carry that dividend or any other distribution or entitlement, then the VWAP on the Business Days on which those Ordinary Shares have been quoted cum dividend or cum any other distribution or entitlement shall be reduced by an amount ("Cum Value") equal to:
    1. (in case of a dividend or other distribution), the amount of that dividend or other distribution including, if the dividend or other distribution is franked, the amount that would be included in the assessable income of a recipient of the dividend or other distribution who is both a resident of Australia and a natural person under the Tax Act;
    2. (in the case of any other entitlement that is not a dividend or other distribution under Section 2(a)(i) of this Schedule A which is traded on the ASX on any of those Business Days), the volume weighted average sale price of all such entitlements sold on the ASX during the VWAP Period on the Business Days on which those entitlements were traded; or

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

    1. (in the case of any other entitlement which is not traded on the ASX during the VWAP Period), the value of the entitlement as reasonably determined by the directors of the Issuer; and
  1. where, on some or all of the Business Days in the VWAP Period, Ordinary Shares have been quoted on the ASX as ex dividend or ex any other distribution or entitlement, and the relevant Principal Amount of the Securities will Convert into Ordinary Shares which would be entitled to receive the relevant dividend or other distribution or entitlement, the VWAP on the Business Days on which those Ordinary Shares have been quoted ex dividend or ex any other distribution or entitlement shall be increased by the Cum Value.

3 ADJUSTMENTS TO VWAP FOR DIVISIONS AND SIMILAR TRANSACTIONS

  1. Where during the relevant VWAP Period there is a change in the number of the Ordinary Shares on issue as a result of a division, consolidation or reclassification of the Issuer's share capital (not involving any cash payment or other distribution or compensation to or by holders of Ordinary
    Shares) (a "Reorganisation"), in calculating the VWAP for that VWAP Period the daily VWAP applicable on each day in the relevant VWAP Period which falls before the date on which trading in Ordinary Shares is conducted on a post Reorganisation basis shall be adjusted by multiplying such daily VWAP by the following formula:

A

B

where:

A means the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares immediately before the Reorganisation; and

B means the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares immediately after the Reorganisation.

  1. Any adjustment made by the Issuer in accordance with Section 3(a) of this Schedule A will, absent manifest error, be effective and binding on holders of the Securities under these terms and these terms will be construed accordingly. Any such adjustment must be promptly notified to all holders of the Securities.

4 ADJUSTMENTS TO ISSUE DATE VWAP

For the purposes of determining the Issue Date VWAP, corresponding adjustments to VWAP will be made in accordance with Section 2 and Section 3 of this Schedule A during the 20 Business Day period over which VWAP is calculated for the

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

purposes of determining the Issue Date VWAP. On and from the Issue Date adjustments to the Issue Date VWAP:

  1. may be made in accordance with Sections 5 to 7 of this Schedule A (inclusive); and
  2. if so made, will cause an adjustment to the Maximum Conversion Number.

5 ADJUSTMENTS TO ISSUE DATE VWAP FOR BONUS ISSUES

  1. Subject to Section 5(b) of this Schedule A below, if at any time after the Issue Date the Issuer makes a pro rata bonus issue of Ordinary Shares to holders of Ordinary Shares generally, the Issue Date VWAP will be adjusted immediately in accordance with the following formula:

V

=

VV RD

= Vo X

RD + RN

where:

V means the Issue Date VWAP applying immediately after the application of this formula;

Vo means the Issue Date VWAP applying immediately prior to the application of this formula;

RN means the number of Ordinary Shares issued pursuant to the bonus issue; and

RD means the number of Ordinary Shares on issue immediately prior to the allotment of new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the bonus issue.

  1. Section 5(a) of this Schedule A does not apply to Ordinary Shares issued as part of a bonus share plan, employee or executive share plan, executive option plan, share top up plan, share purchase plan or a dividend reinvestment plan.
  2. For the purpose of Section 5(a) of this Schedule A, an issue will be regarded as a pro rata issue notwithstanding that the Issuer does not make offers to some or all holders of Ordinary Shares with registered addresses outside Australia, provided that in so doing the Issuer is not in contravention of the ASX Listing Rules.
  3. No adjustments to the Issue Date VWAP will be made under this Section 5 of this Schedule A for any offer of Ordinary Shares not covered by Section 5(a) of this Schedule A, including a rights issue or other essentially pro rata issue.

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

  1. The fact that no adjustment is made for an issue of Ordinary Shares except as covered by Section 5(a) of this Schedule A shall not in any way restrict the Issuer from issuing Ordinary Shares at any time on such terms as it sees fit nor require any consent or concurrence of any holders of the Security.

6 ADJUSTMENT TO ISSUE DATE VWAP FOR DIVISIONS AND SIMILAR TRANSACTIONS

  1. If at any time after the Issue Date, a Reorganisation occurs, the Issuer shall adjust the Issue Date VWAP by multiplying the Issue Date VWAP applicable on the Business Day immediately before the date of any such Reorganisation by the following formula:

A

B

where:

A means the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares immediately before the Reorganisation; and

B means the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares immediately after the Reorganisation.

  1. Any adjustment made by the Issuer in accordance with Section 6(a) of this Schedule A will, absent manifest error, be effective and binding on holders of Securities under these terms and these terms will be construed accordingly.
  2. Each holder of a Security acknowledges that the Issuer may, consolidate, divide or reclassify securities so that there is a lesser or greater number of Ordinary Shares at any time in its absolute discretion without any such action requiring any consent or concurrence of any holders of Securities.

7 NO ADJUSTMENT TO ISSUE DATE VWAP IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES

Despite the provisions of Section 5 and Section 6 of this Schedule A, no adjustment shall be made to the Issue Date VWAP where such adjustment (rounded if applicable) would be less than one percent of the Issue Date VWAP then in effect.

  1. ANNOUNCEMENT OF ADJUSTMENT TO ISSUE DATE VWAP
    The Issuer will notify the holder of Securities (an "Adjustment Notice") of any adjustment to the Issue Date VWAP under this Schedule A within 10 Business Days of the Issuer determining the adjustment and the adjustment set out in the announcement will be final and binding.
  2. ORDINARY SHARES

(Reverse of Security continued on next page)

Each Ordinary Share issued or arising upon Conversion ranks pari passu with all other fully paid Ordinary Shares. The Holders of Securities agree not to trade Ordinary Shares issued on Conversion (except as permitted by the Corporations Act 2001 of Australia, other applicable laws and the ASX Listing Rules) until ANZ has taken such steps as are required by the Corporations Act 2001 of Australia, other applicable laws and the ASX Listing Rules for the Ordinary Shares to be freely tradeable without such further disclosure or other action and agree to allow ANZ to impose a holding lock or to refuse to register a transfer in respect of Ordinary Shares until such time.

  1. LISTING ORDINARY SHARES ISSUED ON CONVERSION
    The Issuer shall use all reasonable endeavours to list the Ordinary Shares issued upon Conversion of the Securities on the ASX.
  2. ALTERNATIVE CONVERSION NUMBER
    If the Issuer must Convert a Principal Amount of Securities in accordance with the terms hereof and the face of this Security specifies that the Alternative Conversion Number applies, then:
    1. Section 1 of this Schedule A applies on the basis that the Conversion Number for the purposes of Section 1(a) of this Schedule A is the number of Ordinary Shares specified on the face of this Security as the Alternative Conversion Number (subject to the Alternative Conversion Number being no more than the Maximum Conversion Number as determined in accordance with Section 1(a) of Schedule A); and
    2. Sections 2 to 8 (inclusive) of this Schedule A do not apply to the Alternative Conversion Number.
  3. DEFINITIONS

For the purposes of this Schedule A the following terms shall have the following meanings:

Schedule 3 - Description of rights and liabilities attaching to Ordinary Shares

The rights and liabilities attaching to Ordinary Shares are set out in the constitution of the Issuer ("Constitution") and are also regulated by the Corporations Act, ASX Listing Rules and the general law. A summary of the key rights attaching to the Ordinary Shares is as follows.

Voting rights

Subject to any rights or restrictions attached to any shares or class of shares, a registered holder of an Ordinary Share ("Shareholder") is entitled to attend and vote at a general meeting of the Issuer. Any resolution being considered at a general meeting is decided on a show of hands unless a poll is held. On a show of hands, each Shareholder present has one vote.

On a poll, each Shareholder has one vote for each Ordinary Share. Partly paid Ordinary Shares confer that fraction of a vote which is equal to the proportion which the amount paid bears to the total issue price of the Ordinary Share.

General meetings

Notice of a general meeting must be given to each Shareholder in accordance with the Corporations Act. Each Shareholder is entitled to receive notices, financial statements and other documents required to be provided to Shareholders under the Constitution, Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules.

Dividend entitlement

Subject to the Corporations Act, the Constitution and the terms of issue of Ordinary Shares, the board of directors of the Issuer ("Board") may resolve to pay dividends on Ordinary Shares which are considered by the Board to be appropriate, in proportion to the capital paid up on the Ordinary Shares held by each Shareholder (subject to the rights of holders of shares carrying preferred rights including Subordinated Notes).

Dividend reinvestment plan and bonus option plan

Shareholders who are eligible may participate in the Issuer's dividend reinvestment plan or bonus option plan, as in force from time to time, in accordance with (and subject to) the rules of those plans. Shareholders who are subject to the laws of a country or place other than Australia may not be eligible to participate, because of legal requirements that apply in that country or place or in Australia. Until the Board otherwise determines, participation in the Issuer's dividend reinvestment plan and bonus option plan is not available directly or indirectly to any entity or person (including any legal or beneficial owner of Ordinary Shares) who is (or who is acting on behalf of or for the account or benefit of an entity or person who is) in or resident in the United States (including its territories or possessions) or Canada.

Rights of shareholders on a winding-up of the Issuer

If the Issuer is wound up and its property is more than sufficient to pay all debts, share capital of the Issuer and expenses of the winding-up, the excess must be divided among Shareholders in proportion to the capital paid up on the Ordinary Shares at the commencement of the winding-up (subject to the rights of holders of shares carrying preferred rights on winding-up including Subordinated Notes). A partly paid Ordinary Share is counted as a fraction of a fully paid Ordinary Share equal to the proportion which the amount paid on it bears to the total issue price of the Ordinary Share.

However, with the sanction of a special resolution, the liquidator may divide among Shareholders the assets of the Issuer in kind and decide how the division is to be carried out or vest assets in trustees of any trusts for the benefit of Shareholders as the liquidator thinks appropriate.

Transfer of ordinary shares

Ordinary Shares may be transferred by any means permitted by the Corporations Act or by law. The Board may decline to register a transfer where permitted to do so under the ASX

Listing Rules or the settlement operating rules of the ASX ("ASX Settlement Operating Rules"), or where registration of the transfer is forbidden by the Corporations Act, ASX Listing Rules or ASX Settlement Operating Rules. In addition, subject to the Corporations Act, ASX Listing Rules and ASX Settlement Operating Rules, the Board may decline to register a transfer if registration would create a new holding of less than a marketable parcel under the ASX Listing Rules.

Issues of further shares

Subject to the Constitution, Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules, the Board may issue or grant options in respect of Ordinary Shares on such terms as the Board decides. The Board may also issue preference shares, including redeemable preference shares, or convertible notes with preferred, deferred or special rights or restrictions in relation to dividends, voting, return of capital and participation in surplus on a winding-up of the Issuer.

Variation of the Constitution

The Constitution can only be modified by a special resolution in accordance with the Corporations Act. Under the Corporations Act, for a resolution to be passed as a special resolution it must be passed by at least 75 per cent. of the votes cast by members entitled to vote on the resolution.

Variation of rights

The Issuer may only modify or vary the rights attaching to any class of shares with the prior approval, by a special resolution, of the holders of shares in that class at a meeting of those holders, or with the written consent of the holders of at least 75 per cent. of the issued shares of that class.

Subject to the terms of issue, the rights attached to a class of shares are not treated as varied by the issue of further shares which rank equally with that existing class for participation in profits and assets of the Issuer.
