Redefine’s portfolio is anchored domestically in directly held retail, office and industrial properties, and is complemented by property investments in Poland, the United Kingdom (UK) and Australia.
Redefine’s purpose is to create and manage spaces in a way that changes lives, which requires more than a business as usual approach, it requires an integrated approach to sustain value creation for all stakeholders.
Redefine is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and has a market capitalisation of R13.2 billion (FY19: R45.5 billion) as at 30 April 2020. By volume, Redefine shares are among the most actively traded on the JSE, making it a highly liquid single-entry point for investors to gain exposure to domestic and multiple international real estate markets.
Redefine’s diversified local property assets were valued at R71.3 billion (FY19: R72.8 billion). The Group’s international real estate investments, valued at R17.9 billion (FY19: R22.6 billion) represented 20.1% (FY19: 23.7%) of total property assets, providing geographic diversification into the Polish, UK and Australian markets.
Distributable income per share for the six months ended 29 February 2020 amounted to 33.46 (HY19: 49.19) cents, a decrease of 32.0% on the previous comparable period. Total revenue showed a growth of 9.6% (HY19: 11.7%). Given current market conditions, unless investee companies publicly declared a distribution prior to the date of this announcement and there is certainty that it will be paid, no dividend has been accrued. This accounts for the bulk of the distributable income decrease.
Redefine’s property portfolio contributed 99.1% (HY19: 97.8%) of total revenue, with the remaining 0.9% (HY19: 2.2%) arising from investment income.
The operating cost margin increased to 36.0% (HY19: 34.7%) of contractual rental income. Net of electricity cost and utility recoveries, operating costs were 17.4% (HY19: 16.8%) of contractual rental income.
