Elders Finance Announces Capital Bond Issue

Elders Finance Announces Capital Bond Issue

Elders Finance Ltd is launching a Capital Bond issue that will raise up to $20 million to provide additional strategic choices for the business' capital structure and assist with satisfying its clients borrowing demands.

The bonds will offer interest rates ranging from 8.95%p.a.-9.35%p.a. for terms of three-five years. There are three maturities being offered:

Term Rate of Return

36 months 8.95%p.a.

48 months 9.35%p.a.

60 months 9.35%p.a.

The minimum investment is $1,000, with rate quoted per annum and subject to change.

Elders Finance chairman Mark Hotchin said the bonds are being offered in response to demand from existing investors.

"We are experiencing strong demand for securities that offer a competitive rate of return, and we are able to give investors the opportunity to contribute to the growth of Elders Finance," Mr Hotchin said.

Elders Finance, which is owned by Hanover Group Ltd, is facing increased demand for financial services from a wide range of New Zealand's growing industries. Elders Finance recently reported a record $19.6 million after tax operating profit for the 2003 financial year. Total assets increased nearly 18% to $578.5 million while total operating revenue was up more than 27% to $73.5 million.

"We continue to go from strength to strength and have a growing demand for the financial services provided by Elders Finance," Mr. Hotchin said.

The Capital Bonds offer a sound return, as well as an excellent opportunity for investors to take part in the success of Elders Finance.

In the past 18 years Elders has helped finance business throughout the country, ranging in industries from agriculture, forestry and fishing, accommodation, tourism, health, retail and consumer, commercial and residential property development and investment, and financial and insurance.
