Goodman (NZ) Limited, the manager of Goodman Property Trust (GMT or Trust) is pleased to announce the Trust’s financial results for the year ended 31 March 2021.

+ Statutory profit of $648.9 million before tax (including significant investment property valuation gains of $560.0 million), up 128.2% on FY20.

+ Operating earnings of $114.9 million before tax, an increase of 4.7% from FY20.
+ Cash earnings of 6.40 cents per unit and cash distributions of 5.30 cents per unit, reflecting a payout ratio of 82.8%.
+ Substantial balance sheet capacity, with a loan to value ratio of 19.2% and $339 million of available liquidity at 31 March 2021.
+ $200 million of wholesale bond issuance adding further tenor and diversity to the Trust’s debt book.

While economic and pandemic risks remain, the quality, scale and location of the portfolio, together with low gearing and focused investment strategy gives the Board and Management confidence that the Trust remains well positioned into FY22.
