History

The ADRs were originally listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on 6 December 1994.

On 20 June 2007, ANZ announced its intention to withdraw this listing and to fully deregister from the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) ongoing reporting obligations. The ADR’s were delisted from the NYSE as of 12 July 2007, and moved to a Level 1 Sponsored Program pursuant to which it is possible for the ADR’s to be traded in the over-the-counter securities market on the OTC Link LLC electronic platform operated by OTC Markets Group Inc in the United States.

The SEC deregistration became effective in October 2007. Further details are set out in the following ANZ press releases:
