(C)
Total revenue for the year jumped to R62.0 million (R53.7 million). Net profit for the year grew to R43.2 million (R36.2 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share rose to 78.36 cents per share (65.59 cents per share).



Dividend

The cash flows of GAIA's underlying assets are typically of a predictable nature, resulting in an inflation-linked dividend growth investment case. GAIA (Tax reference number: 9473/844/17/4) paid its interim cash dividend of R13.7 million (24.84 cents per share) for the six months ended 31 August 2017, paid in November 2017.



Notice is hereby given that the board of directors ("the board") have declared a final gross cash dividend of 42.0 cents (33.6 cents net of dividend withholding tax) per ordinary share for the period ended 28 February 2018.



Company outlook

GAIA's primary focus, the secondary market in infrastructure equity, continues to present significant opportunities which are not dependent on whether new infrastructure projects are continually developed. The company's investment case was buoyed by Government's renewed commitment to facilitate private sector investment into the selected infrastructure sectors in which GAIA invests, being energy, water and sanitation, and transportation infrastructure.



GAIA focuses on core infrastructure assets for which the cash flows can be forecast with a low margin of error. These are assets that are mature beyond their demand ramp-up phase, functioning in established and transparent regulatory environments, serving demographically and economically sound service areas and have minimal obsolescence or technology risks.



GAIA has a diversified pipeline of approximately R1.7 billion of exclusive investment opportunities for which it requires equity funding to execute. The company continues to engage with the equity capital markets to raise funding to enable execution of these value-accretive investments in accordance with the company's Investment Policy for the benefit of its stakeholders. The investment pipeline yields are above target investment return of CPI +6% (gross of fees) on a blended basis.

(Official Notice)
The Johannesburg Stock Exchange ("JSE") advised that the above mentioned company has failed to submit their provisional reports within the three-month period stipulated in the JSE's Listings Requirements.



Accordingly, the company's listing on the JSE trading system have been annotated with an "RE" to indicate that they have failed to submit their provisional reports timeously and that the listing of the company's securities is under threat of suspension and possible removal.



If the abovementioned company still fails to submit their provisional reports on or before 29 June 2018, then their listings may be suspended.

01-Jun-2018
(Official Notice)
Gaia shareholders are advised that publication of the company?s provisional annual financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2018 will be delayed and should be published on SENS and in the press on or before 15 June 2018.



The reason for the delay is that, as announced on 19 September 2017, GAIA acquired its second asset, an effective see-through economic interest of 20% in the Noblesfontein Wind Farm, through a preference share structure (?the Noblesfontein Transaction?). With effect from 29 November 2017, the company appointed Deloitte and Touche as external auditors to the company. The accounting of the Noblesfontein Transaction; liaising with new external auditors to the company; and the departure of the previous Finance Director on 9 February 2018, has resulted in a delay of the finalisation of the external audit of the company?s annual financial statements.



The company is on track to distribute its annual financial statements before the end of June 2018.
09-Feb-2018
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that Ms Tamee Soudien-Witten has resigned as Finance Director and as an executive director of the Board of GAIA, with effect from 9 February 2018.

29-Nov-2017
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that Deloitte and Touche have been appointed as Gaia?s external auditors replacing KPMG Incorporated (?KPMG?), with Mr P Ndlovu as designated audit partner for the current financial year ending 28 February 2018. The change in audit firm, which is effective immediately was initiated by GAIA due to the recent reputational concerns raised regarding KPMG.
06-Nov-2017
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that in accordance with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Ltd., Gaia?s annual compliance report in terms of section 13G (2) of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Amendment Act, 46 of 2013, is available on the Company?s website at www.gaia-ic.com.
16-Oct-2017
(C)
Total revenue for the interim period increased to R23.3 million (2016: R21 million), increase in net assets attributable to ordinary shareholders rose to R13.7 million (2016: R12.7 million), while headline earnings per share grew to 24.84 cents per share (2016: 22.97 cents per share).



Dividend distribution

The Board declared an interim dividend of 24.84 cents (19.872 cents net of dividend withholding tax) per ordinary share for the period ended 31 August 2017.



Change in external auditor

Shareholders are advised that in terms of paragraph 3.78 of the JSE Listings Requirements, the Board has resolved to terminate the services of KPMG Incorporated ("KPMG") as external auditor to the Company with effect from 31 October 2017. New external auditors will be appointed and announced in due course.



Following the recent reputational concerns regarding KPMG and after discussions with the external audit team on GAIA, the Board deemed it best to part ways with KPMG.



Outlook

GAIA has a diversified pipeline of near-term investment opportunities for which it requires funding to execute. The Company will continue to engage with the capital markets to raise funding to enable execution of these value-accretive investments in accordance with the Company's investment mandate for the benefit of its shareholders. The strong investment pipeline yields above target investment return on a blended basis.
