GROUP CEO'S REVIEW
For now, we remain alert to opportunities but averse to risk. In the short to medium term, our priorities will be defined by the actions necessary to protect our balance sheet.
"Our retail, office and industrial property portfolios in SA are among the country’s largest."
- We have an interest in 58 properties in Australia through our 62.2% investment in Growthpoint Properties Australia (GOZ),
- 62 properties in Central and Eastern Europe through our 29.4% investment in Globalworth (GWI) and
- Seven community shopping centres in the UK, through our 52.1% investment in Capital & Regional (C&R).
Our three stated strategic thrusts, which are aligned with our vision "to be a leading international property company providing space to thrive", remained our focus in FY20 and we made good progress in the first three quarters of the financial year. The Covid-19 lockdown commencing at the beginning of our fourth quarter compelled us to focus on managing business operations during an uncertain time.
The Board and Executive Management strive to create maximum shared value through ensuring the relevance and sustainability of the business model, by monitoring and responding to the macro environment, the availability of capital inputs and stakeholder needs, all of which informs the strategy.
