New Bank Austria "ErfolgsAnleihe" bonds with attractive initial interest rates and security for capital

Two new "ErfolgsAnleihe" bonds with terms of six years and four years, respectively, offer high initial interest rates and security for capital. For investors looking for investments with a reasonable term and attractive interest rates, Bank Austria has launched two new bonds offering security for capital at maturity: Fix-Floater-Anleihe 2010-2016 Series 9 has a term of six years and the bonds are denominated in units of EUR 1,000. The minimum investment is EUR 3,000. An initial interest rate of 3 per cent p.a. in the first half-year is assured with the first two coupons. Thereafter the interest rate will be adjusted on a quarterly basis to the 3-month EURIBOR interbank rate without deduction; the minimum interest rate is 2 per cent p.a. and the maximum interest rate is 6 per cent p.a.

Fix-Floater-Anleihe 2010-2014 Series 10 has a term of four years and the bonds are denominated in units of EUR 1,000. The minimum investment is EUR 3,000. An initial interest rate of 2.25 per cent p.a. in the first half-year is assured with the first two coupons. Thereafter the interest rate will be adjusted on a quarterly basis to the 3-month EURIBOR interbank rate without deduction; the minimum interest rate is 1.7 per cent p.a. and there is no upper limit on the interest rate. In this case, customers can fully benefit from a potential increase in interest rate levels.

Security for capital and interest
Interest on the two "ErfolgsAnleihe" bond issues is paid quarterly on specified dates. Investors can benefit from possible interest rate increases, and a minimum interest rate is assured for the remaining period to maturity. Capital is repaid at 100 per cent of the nominal value at the end of the term. Investors requiring their capital before maturity can sell their "ErfolgsAnleihe" bonds at the current market price. Bank Austria is liable with its entire assets for the payment of interest and capital.
