Shares in the ANZ bank are in a trading halt this morning.
2 May, 2012
The stock exhange operator said today that, at the request of the company, it has placed a trading halt on ANZ ordinary shares listed on the NZSX market.
The trading halt is in place pending the release to the market of ANZ's half year result.
Market analyst Robert Garden told TVNZ that a trading halt before a half-year result is not "ordinary practice" but the bank has done so previously.
The shares are not halted on the ASX, Garden said
