Possible new ASX-listed fund

13 September 2005

Macquarie Bank Limited (Macquarie) said today that it was investigating the possible establishment of a new ASX-listed fund which would include the assets of RG Capital Radio Limited and DMG Regional Radio Pty Limited that were acquired by the Macquarie Bank Group in September 2004 and would focus on making further investments in media assets both in Australia and overseas. Macquarie has appointed a number of advisers to assist in this process and expects to make an announcement on its intentions in the coming weeks.

In the event that it proceeds with a capital raising, Macquarie will inform the market and a disclosure document will be made available for the offer of securities. Anyone wishing to apply for any securities will need to complete the application form that accompanies the disclosure document.
