Instructions for participation in the Treasury Bill Tender are outlined below:

Participation: Investors may participate in the tender process in two ways:

(1) Competitive Participation (Bids of nominal value $500,000 or greater) – prospective investors submit tenders providing a bid price for consideration. Tenders are to be submitted electronically, in PDF format, to [email protected], no later than 3:00 p.m. on the Tender Date.

Example of purchase of 91–day T-Bills by a competitive participant:
"[Investor Name] hereby tenders for 91-day Treasury Bills at nominal value $1,000,000 at the price of $99.3874."

(2) Non-competitive Participation (nominal value below $500,000) – following the initial tender and based on availability, investors may purchase at the market-derived average tender price. Prospective investors are to contact the Markets Unit at [email protected] expressing interest in purchasing available T-Bills via the secondary market. Non-competitive investors are permitted to purchase both 91-day and 182-day T-Bills.

Example of purchase of 91–day T-Bills by a non-competitive participant:
"[Investor name] would like to invest in 91-days Treasury Bills at the nominal value of $100,000 at the market price."

Allocation: Competitive Participation - Successful participants will receive a confirmation on the first business day following the tender.

Purchase Price: Investors participating non-competitively will purchase at the average tender price derived from the tender i.e. market price. For a non-competitive investor purchasing $100,000 of 91-day T-Bills at the prevailing average tender price of 99.3598 on April 22, 20XX, the cost was $99,359.80**.

**Issue Date: April 22, 20XX

Cost to investor $100,000 * (99.3598/100) = $99,359.80
