Commonwealth Bank Group Statement regarding Ansett

18 September 2001

Following Ansett being placed in voluntary administration, Commonwealth Bank Group advises that its direct credit exposure is less than $39 million.

The Group has recourse to a major overseas bank in respect of a further, smaller exposure of $16 million.

Press reports of the Group having lead-managed a syndicated facility of $1.3 billion to Ansett are incorrect.
