Item 1. Security and Issuer.

The class of equity securities to which this Statement on Schedule 13D relates is the common stock (the “Common Stock”), of Continental Energy Corp. (the “Issuer”), a British Columbia, Canadian corporation having its principal executive offices at: 1413 S. Howard Avenue, Suite 220, Tampa, Florida, 33606.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background.

This statement on Schedule 13D is being filed by Macquarie Bank Limited (“MBL”), an Australian corporation. MBL is a global provider of banking, financial, advisory, investment and funds management services. MBL has its principal office at 1 Martin Place, Sydney, NSW 2000, Australia.

Macquarie B.H. Pty Limited is the sole voting member of MBL. Macquarie B.H. Pty Limited is directly and wholly-owned by MGL, which is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). MGL is a leading provider of banking, financial, advisory, investment and funds management services. MGL has its principal office at Level 7, 1 Martin Place, Sydney, NSW 2000, Australia. MGL’s ownership of MBL is through Macquarie B.H. Pty Ltd, its wholly owned subsidiary which has no other business activities other than the ownership of MBL. As a result, the information provided is only for MGL and MBL.

The directors and executive officers of MGL and MBL are set forth on Schedule I attached hereto. Schedule I sets forth the following information with respect to each such person:

(i) name;

(ii) business address;

(iii) present principal occupation or employment and the name, principal business and address of any corporation or other organization in which such employment is conducted; and

(iv) citizenship.

During the last five years, none of MGL, MBL or any person named in Schedule I, has been (i) convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

On August 24, 2007, Macquarie Bank Limited (“MBL”) entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Issuer to acquire 5,000,000 units on August 29 2007, each unit consisting of 1 fully-paid and non-assessable common share (or 5,000,000 “shares”), and two non-transferable share purchase warrants, each warrant entitling the holder to purchase 1 additional

common share (or 10,000,000 “warrant shares”). The purchase price for the units was US$0.65 per Common Share; the strike price for the warrants was US$0.90 per share. The warrants expire 3 years after the unit was issued, or August 29, 2010. MBL was also issued a further 250,000 shares as a placement fee for the issue of the units. The previously granted 10,000,000 warrants expired at the end of August 2010.

MBL received notice on January 25th 2011, that by action of the board of directors of the Issuer, the terms of 10,000,000 common share purchase warrants originally issued to Macquarie Bank Limited in August 2007 in consideration of a private placement were amended as follows: the expiry date of the 10,000,000 common share purchase warrants has been extended until 29 August 2012 and the exercise price has been reduced from US$ 0.90 per common share to US$ 0.20 per common share.

The 10,000,000 common share purchase warrants noted above expired on 29 August 2012.
