XTBs: Theta is the Responsible Entity for the managed investment scheme Australian Corporate Bond Trust (the “Trust”) quoted on the AQUA market of the ASX, and is the issuer of XTBs or units in that Trust. The Trust constitution provides that the liability of each unit holder is limited to its investment in the Trust.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, Australian Corporate Bond Company, Theta, GBX and their employees, officers and contractors are not liable for loss or damage arising in any way (including by way of negligence) from or in connection with the use of the Yield Calculator.

The Yield Calculator requires the user to input certain information, all of which can be changed by the user, as such the results may be different to current market prices or yields. The Yield Calculator is designed to help you easily calculate the yield to maturity of an XTB. Comparing the yield to maturity of different XTBs or interest-bearing investments may assist in considering the merits of potential investments.

Before using the Yield Calculator you should be familiar with key terms relating to XTBs and interest bearing investments:

In order to use the Yield Calculator, you will need to know the Maturity Date, the Coupon Rate and one of the Market Price or the Yield to Maturity. If you put the Maturity Date, the Coupon Rate and the Yield to Maturity into the Yield Calculator it will generate a Market Price that reflects those inputs. If you put the Maturity Date, the Coupon Rate and the Market Price into the Yield Calculator it will generate a Yield to Maturity that reflects those inputs.
