Successful completion of bookbuild for MRP Capital Bond offe

NEWS RELEASE

17 June 2014

Successful completion of bookbuild for MRP Capital Bond offer

Mighty River Power today announced the successful completion of the bookbuild process for its Capital Bond offer and a minimum interest rate set at 6.80%.

Chief Financial Officer, William Meek, said the bookbuild was well supported and $280 million of unsecured subordinated Capital Bonds have been reserved for clients of participants in the bookbuild process who received firm allocations.

Recognising that some New Zealanders will not have a broking relationship, Mighty River Power has made the balance of the offer ($20 million) available to a public pool. Preference in the public pool will be given to existing shareholders if scaling is required.

The minimum interest rate in the first five years for the Capital Bonds has been set at 6.80% per annum and the initial margin is 2.25% per annum. The interest rate until the first reset date will be set on 9 July 2014 as the higher of the:
• minimum interest rate (6.80%); or
• five year swap rate plus the initial margin.

The offer opens tomorrow and closes on Tuesday 8 July 2014 at 5pm and is only available to New Zealand residents. Successful applicants will be paid ‘early bird’ interest at the interest rate from the date their application monies are banked to the issue date. This interest will be paid as soon as practicable following the issue date.

Applications for Capital Bonds must be made using the form included in the Simplified Disclosure Prospectus. Interested investors should contact one of the Joint Lead Managers to the offer (listed below) or an Authorised Financial Advisor to request a free copy of the Simplified Disclosure Prospectus, which can also be viewed on www.mrpcapitalbonds.co.nz
