The Bonds will have a maturity date of 5 August 2024.

WIAL has announced the indicative margin range for the Offer of 1.65% p.a. to 1.75% p.a. (subject to a minimum interest rate of 4.00% p.a.). Based on the swap rate on 25 July 2016, of 2.26%p.a. for the period until 5 August 2024, the indicative issue margin implies a nominal interest rate for the offer of 3.91% to 4.01%p.a. (subject to the minimum of 4.00%p.a.). This is an indication only. The actual nominal interest rate could be set higher, lower or within this indicative range (subject to the minimum of 4.00%p.a) and the actual nominal rate will not be known until after the book build which is to be held on Friday 29 July 2016.

The Offer is being made pursuant to the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 as an offer of debt securities of the same class as existing quoted debt securities.

WIAL’s issuer credit rating is BBB+ from Standard & Poor's (subject to change). There is no specific issue rating for the Bonds.
