IPO Launching Soon: YTMQF4

Qantas [will issue] a 2.95% 2029 bond in the wholesale market on 07 Dec. Exposure to [$200m] of the bond will be available for retail investors via ASX-traded XTBs.

This XTB IPO provides retail investors with access to the potential returns from Qantas bonds at [a similar/the same] time as the initial wholesale bond investors. This provides a new investment opportunity for retail investors.

The Qantas XTB IPO will be exclusively available via [3] partner brokers (name 1, 2 and 3). Following its ASX-listing, the XTB will trade under the ticker code YTMQF4 (link to bond detail page?).

IPO investments start at [$5,000] in single XTB units.

Post-IPO, there is no minimum when buying or selling XTBs.

How the XTB works

Each Qantas XTB is effectively a $100 fraction of a [$500,000] Qantas 2029 bond, traded on ASX.

By issuing XTBs with a $100 face value on ASX, XTBs open up the potential returns of corporate bonds to all investors.

A Qantas XTB has the same coupon rate and maturity date as the underlying Qantas bond – it effectively mirrors the cash flow characteristics of the wholesale market bond.

Investing at IPO and holding to maturity provides a capital stable, regular source of income (subject to the terms of the bond and assuming the issuer does not default).

Features include:

  • A fixed coupon paid every six months on pre-determined dates
  • At maturity, the final coupon AND $100 face value of each XTB is returned
  • A predictable return of [2.75%] p.a. for the life of the investment
  • Transparent and known fees. The securities manager margin of 0.4% p.a. is included in the XTB purchase price.

Investor Cash Flows

The XTB provides exposure to the predictable income and capital stability of the Qantas 2029 bond alongside the transparency and liquidity of the ASX market.

Key Benefits

  • ASX-traded – simple & accessible
  • Predictable, reliable income – pre-determined coupon dates & amounts
  • Face value returned at maturity – $100 per XTB
