NAB Capital Notes are convertible notes directly issued by NAB on 23 March 2015 and listed on the ASX under the code NABPC. The issue price for NAB Capital Notes is $100 per NAB Capital Note. They're not guaranteed or secured and are not a deposit account or any other account with NAB.

NAB Capital Notes are expected to pay a discretionary, quarterly, floating rate, non-cumulative Distribution. The Distribution Rate is equal to the sum of the Bank Bill Rate and a Margin of 3.50%, a sum adjusted for NAB’s Tax Rate1 to reflect franking credits attached to each Distribution (subject to availability)2. Distributions are expected to be fully franked.

NAB Capital Notes will mandatorily convert into NAB Ordinary Shares on 23 March 2022, provided certain conditions are met. With the written prior approval of APRA, NAB may elect to convert, redeem or resell NAB Capital Notes on 23 March 2020, or earlier, on the occurrence of particular events, provided certain conditions are met.

Holders will have no right to require NAB to convert NAB Capital Notes into Ordinary Shares, or to redeem or resell NAB Capital Notes. Without a conversion, redemption or resale, holders would have to sell their NAB Capital Notes on the ASX at the prevailing market price.
