Second Absolute Capital PINs product launched

Media Release: 20 October 2006

Second Absolute Capital PINs product launched in New Zealand

- PINs 2006-1 follows success of last year’s PINs 2005

- Offer open from 30 October to 17 November

Absolute Capital Group Limited (Absolute Capital), a leading specialist structured credit manager, has launched a second capital protected income product offer to New Zealand investors.

The key features of the product include:

- Principal capital protection*

- Designed to generate a 9.25% per annum yield plus potential bonus interest*

- Regular coupon generating quarterly income to investors*

- Rear-ended performance fee structure

- Income is supported by a range of internationally diversified credit and other investments

- NZDX listing has been requested to create the flexibility of secondary trading#

The rear-ended performance fee structure for the Absolute Capital PINs products is well regarded by New Zealand retail investors (it is usually only offered to institutions). It means that Absolute Capital Limited, as investment manager, will only earn a performance fee when performance exceeds, amongst other things, the payment to investors of the relevant return.

As it did with PINs 2005, the issuer will list the product on the NZDX, with a view to enabling investors the flexibility to trade out through a secondary market should they wish to access their investment earlier than the seven-year life span of the product.

The offer is scheduled to open on 30 October and close on Friday 17 November.

Commenting on the launch, Deon Joubert, Absolute Capital’s Managing Director, said, “With the demand we received for our first PINs product and the level of retail and institutional investment funds coming onto the market, we believe the timing is right for the launch of our second PINs offering to the NZ market.”
