The key points in its strategy released this morning are that

  • GPG to undertake an orderly value realisation of GPG's investment portfolio
    over time.
  • As part of the orderly value realisation, GPG's investment portfolio may be
    reduced to the point where an investment in GPG becomes a pure exposure to
  • Cash proceeds from the orderly realisation of investments to be used to pursue
    capital management initiatives.
  • GPG to undertake an initial capital return to shareholders of at least £75m
    (A$120m / NZ$158m) in the 2011 calendar year, subject to shareholder, tax
    and other approvals as necessary to effect the capital return. GPG will provide
    further details once the form, final amount and process of the capital return has
    been determined.
