Tender of 15-Year Exchange Fund Notes to be held on Tuesday, 19 February 2008

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) announces that a tender of 15-year Exchange Fund Notes will be held on Tuesday 19 February 2008 for settlement on Wednesday 20 February 2008.

A total of HK$600 million 15-year Notes will be on offer, of which HK$5 million will be made available for offer to members of the public who wish to submit non-competitive tender bids through Hong Kong Securities Clearing Company Limited (HKSCC). If the amount of Notes reserved for non-competitive tender is under-subscribed, the non-subscribed amount will be added to the portion of Notes for competitive tender (initially set at HK$595 million). The Notes will mature on 20 February 2023 and will carry interest at the rate of 2.71% per annum payable semi-annually in arrears.

Members of the public who wish to submit non-competitive tender applications for Notes that are open to the HKSCC may do so through Stock Exchange Participants/Brokers, or for those who hold Investor Accounts of the Central Clearing and Settlement System (CCASS) at the HKSCC, directly through the HKSCC, for submission to the HKMA for processing. Competitive tender applications for the Notes must be submitted through any of the Eligible Market Makers on the current published list, which can be obtained from the HKMA at 55/F, Two International Finance Centre, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong (telephone 2878 1465), or from the HKMA's website at http://www.hkma.gov.hk. Each tender must be for an amount of HK$50,000 or integral multiples thereof for both competitive and non-competitive tender.

The tender results will be published on the HKMA's website, the Reuters screen (HKMAOOE) and Bloomberg. Applicants who submitted non-competitive tender bids through the HKSCC may also obtain the tender results from Stock Exchange Participants/Brokers, or for applicants who hold Investor Accounts at the HKSCC's CCASS from the CCASS terminal for CCASS Broker/Custodian/Participants and CCASS Phone System.
