According to Business Report, Growthpoint is implementing measures to reduce water consumption amongst its Cape Town properties following the enforcement of level 5 water restrictions. The restrictions require commercial properties to reduce municipal drinking water consumption by 20% from the previous year. The company has undertaken water usage audits for its properties and benchmarking the usage levels against the EWP tool developed by the Green Building Council of South Africa. Other initiatives implemented include smart water meters, suspension of irrigation and water features and water saving fittings. Growthpoint has managed to reduce its consumption by an average of 16% across its properties and is on course to meeting the 20% target. Growthpoint's Montclare and Paramount Place properties have managed to halve their consumption. The company is committed to saving water and is investigating the viability of establishing a desalination plant for the V-A Waterfront in which it has a 50% ownership.

Shareholders are referred to the SENS announcement, released on Wednesday 30 August 2017, relating to the summary of audited results for the year ended 30 June 2017 in which the final gross dividend of 100.80000 cents, with the election to reinvest the cash dividend in return for Growthpoint shares, was declared. Under the heading ?Tax implications for non-resident shareholders?: assuming dividend tax will be withheld at a rate of 20% (not 15%), the net amount due to non-resident shareholders is 80.64000 (not 80.61000) cents per share.
30-Aug-2017
(C)
Total revenue increased to R10.755 billion (2016: R10.219 billion), operating profit rose to R8.094 billion (2016: R7.785 billion), profit attributable to owners of the company jumped to R7.524 billion (2016: R5.159 billion), while headline earnings per share grew to 179.66 cents per share (2016: 140.57 cents per share).



Dividend

Notice was given of the declaration of the final dividend number 63 of 100.80000 cents per share for the period ended 30 June 2017. Shareholders will be entitled to elect to re-invest the net cash dividend, in return for Growthpoint shares (share alternative), failing which they will receive the net cash dividend in respect of all or part of their shareholdings.



Company prospects

The economic growth prospects for South Africa are insufficient to repair the lacklustre demand and weak property fundamentals, which are expected to continue. The quality and diversity of the underlying South African property portfolio and our strong corporate customer base, together with our investment in the prestigious V-A Waterfront, will continue to ensure sustainable, quality earnings domestically. In addition, Growthpoint's increased internationalisation has added further geographic exposure to our portfolio. The contribution to distributable income from Z is expected to increase in line with guidance provided by GOZ, albeit that the effective dividend withholding tax percentage, is anticipated to be higher. Globalworth is expected to perform well given the robust Romanian economy coupled with demand from global corporates for quality office space. Given the above, the Growthpoint Board is of the view that the dividend growth for FY18 will be similar to that achieved for FY17.

According to BusinessDay, Growthpoint has launched a healthcare property subsidiary to enhance the company's income stream. The company was launched with a R2.5 billion portfolio which has two hospitals in Cape Town and two in Durban. The Company aims to grow the Growthpoint Healthcare to be worth R10 billion in five years and potentially list separately. The company recognised an opportunity to acquire hospital properties and rent them out to smaller operators who have access to operating licences but not enough capital to achieve their desired scale. Growthpoint sees the potential for these acquisitions to attract long leases.

In terms of section 45(5) of the Companies Act, notice is hereby provided to shareholders that, by virtue of the authority granted by shareholders at the annual general meeting held on 15 November 2016, Growthpoint's Board passed a resolution on 28 February 2016 to grant financial assistance to a wholly-owned subsidiary, as contemplated in section 45 (2) of the Companies Act, by way of guarantees in respect of funding facilities provided or to be provided to the subsidiary by South African Financial Institutions.



At the time of passing the resolutions, the Board ensured that the company would satisfy the solvency and liquidity test contemplated in section 4 of the Companies Act at the time of providing this financial assistance, that the company has complied with its Memorandum of Incorporation and the Companies Act, and that the terms upon which the financial assistance was granted are fair and reasonable to the company.

Dividend

Notice was given of the declaration of the final dividend number 62 of 95.00000 cents per share for the period ended 31 December 2016. Shareholders will be entitled to elect to reinvest the net cash dividend, in return for Growthpoint shares (share alternative), failing which they will receive the net cash dividend in respect of all or part of their shareholdings. The entitlement of shareholders to elect to participate in the share re-investment alternative is subject to the Board, either itself or through a Board sub-committee appointed to set the pricing and terms of the share re-investment alternative, having the discretion to withdraw the entitlement to elect the share re-investment alternative should market conditions warrant such action. A withdrawal of the entitlement to elect the share re-investment alternative would be communicated to shareholders before the publication of the finalisation announcement on Monday, 13 March 2017.



Prospects

Property and economic fundamentals in RSA remain weak with further weakness anticipated. The contribution to distributable income from both the V-A Waterfront and Z is expected to be consistent but the unhedged portion of the GOZ income could be negatively impacted by further ZAR strength. The Globalworth transaction will be accretive to earnings for the second half of FY17. Given the negative outlook for RSA, coupled with the volatility of the ZAR, the Growthpoint Board is of the view that the dividend growth for FY17 will remain similar to that achieved for HY17.

(Official Notice)
Further to the announcement of the declaration of the final dividend and dividend re-investment alternative included in Growthpoint?s results (?Results Announcement?) in respect of the six months ended 30 June 2016 released on the Securities Exchange News Service (?SENS?) on Thursday, 1 September 2016 and in the press on Friday, 2 September 2016, the price applicable to Growthpoint shareholders electing the dividend re- investment alternative and recorded in the register on Friday, 23 September 2016 (i.e. the ?Record Date?), is R24.00 (?Re-investment Price?).



The Re-investment Price is based on a 3.15% discount to the 5-day volume weighted average price (ex the dividend for the six months ended 30 June 2016 of 94.30 cents), as at the close of business on Monday, 12 September 2016.

Shareholders will be entitled to elect to re-invest the net cash dividend, in return for Growthpoint shares (share alternative), failing which they will receive the net cash dividend in respect of all or part of their shareholdings.

A withdrawal of the entitlement to elect the share re-investment alternative will be communicated to shareholders before the publication of the finalisation announcement on Tuesday, 13 September 2016.



Prospects

The low growth and high interest rate environment in South Africa is expected to remain for FY17. While the portfolio dynamics are stable, there is limited opportunity for growth locally. The company expects the V-A Waterfront to continue to perform well, given the strong property fundamentals, weak Rand and the conversion of the significant development pipeline into income generating investments. The Z property fundamentals remain intact and GOZ performance for FY17 is expected to be in line with that of FY16. Growthpoint thus expects dividend growth for FY17 to be similar to that achieved for FY16.

Shareholders will be entitled to elect to reinvest the net cash dividend, in return for Growthpoint shares (Share Alternative), failing which they will receive the net cash dividend in respect of all or part of their shareholdings. The entitlement of shareholders to elect to participate in the share re-investment alternative is subject to the board, either itself or through a board sub-committee appointed to set the pricing and terms of the share re-investment alternative, having the discretion to withdraw the entitlement to elect the share re-investment alternative should market conditions warrant such action.

Prospects

Property and economic fundamentals in RSA remain weak with some relief coming from the V-A and Z on the back of more favourable trading conditions and currency movements respectively. After considering the information above the Growthpoint board is of the view that the dividend growth for FY16 will be similar to that achieved for HY16.



This forecast has not been subject to audit or review by the company's independent external auditors.

Business Report announced that Growthpoint introduced a new brandmark to its logo. The logo will consist of a "G" placed inside a window. Nadine Kuzmanich, head of marketing for Growthpoint, said: " We like the approach of using the 'G' to symbolise Growthpoint and highlight our business. We've placed this inside a window, which is a literal nod to the buildings that Growthpoint invests in, but also represents vision and transparency". Kuzmanich added that the diagonal line in the design symbolised forward and upward movement, improvement and signalling growth. The expected rollout of the new logo is expected to be within a year to all of the 477 properties in South Africa as well as the 51 properties in Australia. Growthpoint found that the use of the longer, old logo became difficult to use because of its length, reducing its legibility.

Prospects

Considering the challenging, low growth domestic macro-economic environment which is currently having a negative impact on consumers, the overall declining retail environment, as well as current factors driving the demand for rental space across the retail, office and industrial property sectors, the Board of Growthpoint is of the view that the previously communicated distribution growth rate for FY15 of between 7.0% and 7.5%, which is in line with the average growth rate achieved over the past five years, is attainable for the full year to June 2015.



This forecast has been based on the company's revised projections for FY15, taking into account that the majority of the company's income is contractual rental income, as well as the fact that the interest expense in respect of 78% of the South African debt has been fixed as at HY15.

Linked unitholders are referred to the announcements released on SENS on 26 August 2009 and 4 September 2009 relating to the declaration and finalisation of the final cash distribution of 58.3 cents per Growthpoint linked unit and distribution re-investment alternative ("linked unit alternative"). Linked unitholders holding 926 355 706 Growthpoint linked units or 65.7% of Growthpoint linked units qualifying to receive the distribution elected to receive the linked unit alternative, resulting in the issue of 41 865 537 new units, raising approximately R540 million in new equity for Growthpoint. Accordingly, a cash distribution of R280 494 172 was paid in respect of 481 122 079 Growthpoint linked units. Distribution cheques and linked unit certificates in respect of the new linked units were posted to certificated linked unitholders at their risk and the Central Securities Depository Participant or broker custody accounts of dematerialised linked unitholders were credited on 21 September 2009.



Growthpoint linked unitholders are further referred to the announcements released on the SENS on 18 May 2009, 25 June 2009, 30 July 2009 and 14 September 2009 relating to the proposed acquisition by Growthpoint of a controlling interest in Growthpoint Properties Australia ("Z"), previously known as Orchard Industrial Property Fund Ltd ("proposed acquisition"), as well as the Growthpoint vendor placing relating to the funding thereof. The various phases of the proposed acquisition, including the initial upfront subscription, management internalisation and the rights issue underwritten by Growthpoint have now been completed resulting in Growthpoint owning 76% of GOZ, following acceptances by 7.6% of the minorities in the GOZ rights issue. Growthpoint's initial minimum investment in GOZ was increased to R1.265 billion following the final outcome of the GOZ rights offer and as a result Growthpoint increased the size of the initial vendor placement from R989 million to R1.265 billion. The vendor placing will result in the issue of 96 637 572 new linked units at a weighted average issue price of R13.09. Growthpoint has therefore collectively raised R1.8 billion from the Linked Unit Alternative and vendor placing.

Revenue increased from R2.9 billion to R3.4 billion in 2009. Operating profit increased to R2.2 billion (2008:R2.6 million). Headline earnings on a per share basis grew to 45.26cps (159.31cps).



Distributions per unit

A distribution totalling 114.6cplu was declared



Prospects

Growthpoint has a large, diversified, quality property portfolio and solid tenant base combined with conservative gearing policies and prudent financial management that should enable the company to continue achieving its mission of providing sustainable, growing income streams and long-term capital appreciation. Since the latter half of 2008, the impact of the global economic recession and financial crisis began to be felt quite markedly in South Africa and Growthpoint was not immune to this. However, it was mostly the impact of new developments that came on stream in the last nine months in weak economic conditions that has caused Growthpoint's distributions to grow at a slower rate than what would otherwise have been the case.



Growthpoint's view is that economic activity will continue to be subdued for the next year until the effects of lower short-term interest rates and stable and slowly improving global economic conditions bring some relief. This, together with the impact of anticipated higher margins on the refinancing of debt and certain non-interest-bearing liabilities becoming repayable, could result in distributions for the year to 30 June 2010 not growing at the same rate as in 2009. However, provided that no major unforeseen events occur, we expect to continue showing positive growth in distributions in the next financial year.

The company has delivered growth in distributions for the period ended 31 December 2008 of 10.2% compared to the comparable prior year period. The growth in distributions is based on sustainable earnings derived from property net rental income. The increase in Growthpoint's linked unit price from R11,10 at June 2008 to R15,00 at 31 December 2008, together with the 56,3 cents distribution announced for the six months ended 31 December 2008, amounted to a 40.2% return for the six month period.



Dividends per share

An interim dividend of 56.29c (2007: 51.12c) was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

Since the last quarter of 2008, there has been a deterioration in trading conditions. It is taking longer than anticipated to let vacant space and more difficult to renew leases at higher rentals. Vacancies have increased from 2.9% of gross lettable area to 3.5%, largely as a result of new developments that were completed in the last six months. Growthpoint is, confident of achieving growth in distributions for the full year to 30 June 2009 of between 7% and 10%, assuming no further material change in market conditions or unforeseen major tenant failures.

Revenue increased to R2.9 billion (R2.4 billion) for the year to 30 June 2008. Operating profit rose to R2.2 billion (R1.7 billion) but a loss for the year of R98 million (profit of R1 million) was recorded. Headline earnings per linked unit grew to 159.31cplu (90.73cplu).



Distribution

A final distribution of 55.4cplu has been declared.



Prospects

On a "like-for-like" basis, property net income is expected to grow at similar levels to the 11% experienced in the year ended 30 June 2008. Although there was some reduction in vacancies in the office portfolio in the six months ended 31 December 2007, the impact of newly completed developments that have recently come on stream and others that will be completed in the next six months is likely to increase vacancies in the office sector in the short term as these properties may not all be fully let on completion. Besides the developments, Growthpoint is budgeting to spend R360 million on capital improvements to properties that will in the medium and longer term enable us to achieve higher net rentals.



A slow-down in consumer spending has been noted as higher interest rates and higher inflation levels are impacting on disposable income. The recent power outages have exacerbated the situation for smaller tenants in particular. Although bad debts and tenancy failures are expected to increase, this is not likely to be material to Growthpoint's results due to the large diversification among industrial tenants and the high exposure to national tenants and the dominance of Growthpoint's regional shopping centres. Distributions are not expected to grow at the same level that they did in 2008. However, provided that there is no significant deterioration in economic conditions, we are anticipating to achieve growth in distribution of approximately 10% in the next financial year.

The Growthpoint portfolio has continued its strong performance and has delivered growth in distributions for the period ended 31 December 2007 of 13.5% compared to the comparable prior year period. The growth in distributions is based on sustainable earnings derived from property net rental income and investment income. An interim dividend of 0.051c and debenture interest of 51.049c per linked unit, totalling 51.1c per linked unit had been declared for the six months ended 31 December 2007.



Prospects

The fundamentals in respect of demand for space and availability of space across all sectors remain strong, as witnessed by the declining vacancy levels. A slow-down in consumer spending has been noted as higher interest rates and higher inflation levels are impacting on disposable incomes. The recent power outages have exacerbated the situation for smaller tenants in particular. Although bad debts and tenancy failures are expected to increase, this is not likely to be material to Growthpoint's results for the year ended June 2008, due to the large tenant base diversification throughout its industrial, retail and office sectors The Growthpoint board anticipates that, subject to market conditions remaining stable, Growthpoint's distribution growth for the full year ending 30 June 2008, should be similar to the growth reported for the interim period ended 31 December 2007.

Growthpoint linked unitholders are referred to the announcement released on 10 April 2006, informing Growthpoint linked unitholders that the requisite majority of unitholders had passed the resolutions necessary to approve:

*the acquisition of a portfolio of properties from Tresso;

*the increase in the authorised share capital of Growthpoint; and

*the placement of the unissued authorised share capital under the control of the directors of Growthpoint.

Growthpoint indicated that it would purchase 24 properties ("property portfolio") for an aggregate purchase consideration of R1 633 632 000 to be settled partly in cash and partly through the issue of 84 821 825 new Growthpoint linked units. The tenant in one of the properties being acquired, Umhlanga Hospital, had a pre-emptive right on the sale of the property which they have since decided to exercise. As a result of the pre-emptive right being exercised this property will no longer be acquired by Growthpoint. Accordingly, the total purchase consideration will decrease to R1 429 886 770 which will be settled as to R638 730 420 in cash and R791 156 350 through the issue of 74 286 981 new Growthpoint linked units. As the Umhlanga Hospital was to be acquired at a lower forward yield relative to the average for the property portfolio, the exclusion of the Umhlanga Hospital increases the forward yield for the property portfolio from 9% to 9.3%.

Competition Tribunal approval has now been received for the purchase of the remaining 23 properties. Accordingly all the conditions precedent for the acquisition of the property portfolio have now been fulfilled. The effective date of the transaction will be 1 June 2006. The property portfolio will be transferred into the name of Growthpoint as soon as practically possible, upon which Growthpoint will settle the purchase consideration.

Shareholders were advised, subsequent to the announcement of the proposed acquisition by Growthpoint of all the issued Metboard linked units, that on 27 February 2006 Growthpoint acquired 379 408 Metboard linked units at a price of 646.65c per Metboard linked unit.

(Media Comment)
Commenting on the offer made by Growthpoint to Metboard, Len van Niekerk, an analyst at Andisa Securities told Business Day, "I am concerned about the longer-term growth prospects for Growthpoint because Metboard's distribution growth is expected to be lower in the long term than Growthpoint's."

(Official Notice)
On 22 February 2006, Growthpoint published its unaudited interim results for the 6 months ended 31 December 2005 which referred to earnings per share and distributable earnings per linked unit. As requested by the JSE, the headline earnings per linked unit are as follows:

*Interim (31 Dec 05) -- (2.1c) per linked unit

*Interim (31 Dec 04 -- (59.2c) per linked unit

*Final (30 June 05) -- (52.5c) per linked unit

The disclosure of headline earnings per linked unit is not meaningful as the calculation excludes from headline earnings the revaluation of investment property but includes inter alia the fair value adjustments in respect of fixed interest rate loans, interest rate derivatives and debentures. The company's policy is to reflect debentures at fair value and any increase in the value of investment property results in a corresponding increase in the debenture liability.

(Official Notice)
Growthpoint has submitted to the board of directors of Metboard an offer to acquire all the issued linked units of Metboard other than those already held by Growthpoint. The scheme is subject to conditions precedent and should the scheme be sanctioned and implemented, Growthpoint would acquire the scheme linked units in exchange for the scheme consideration. As a result of the implementation of the scheme, Metboard would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Growthpoint and the listing of the Metboard linked units on the JSE would be terminated. If the scheme is sanctioned and implemented, Metboard linked unitholders, apart from Growthpoint, recorded in the register on the record date of the scheme, would receive 1 new Growthpoint linked unit for every 1.9 Metboard linked units held, rounded to the nearest whole number. Due to the different financial year-ends of Metboard and Growthpoint a special interim distribution would be paid by Metboard and Growthpoint immediately prior to settling the scheme consideration with Metboard linked unitholders. The special distribution would include the unpaid distribution that would have accrued at the operative date of the scheme. Each scheme participant, recorded on the register on the record date of the scheme would be entitled to receive the scheme consideration. The scheme consideration represents a premium of 16.0% to the daily volume weighted average price of the Metboard linked unit price of R6.03 on 23 February 2006, being the last trading day prior to the offer being submitted to the Metboard board.



The Metboard board have considered the terms and conditions of the proposed transaction and, inter alia, the opinion of Ernst - Young, and are of the unanimous opinion that those terms and conditions are fair and reasonable to linked unitholders. The Metboard board support the scheme and recommends that linked unitholders vote in favour of the scheme. An announcement setting out the salient dates of the scheme would be made on or about 24 March 2006.

Following the acquisition of 48 properties valued at R1.08 billion from Tresso Trading 119 (Pty) Ltd on 30 June 2005, the Growthpoint portfolio has continued its strong performance and has delivered growth in distributions for the six-month period ended 31 December 2005 of 10.1% compared to the comparable prior period. This growth was ahead of expectations and market conditions indicate that the group can expect similar growth for the full year. The increase in the Growthpoint linked unit price from 906c at 30 June 2005 to 1 100c at 31 December 2005 together with the 39.1c per linked unit distribution announced for the six months ended 31 December 2005, amounted to a 51.5% annualised return.



The increase in revenue and property expenses was mainly due to the inclusion from 1 July 2005 of the 48 properties acquired from Tresso. The strong performance of Growthpoint's linked unit price together with the additional 43 million linked units issued pursuant to the Tresso acquisition saw the company's market capitalisation increase to just below R8 billion at the end of December 2005. This together with increased borrowings to finance the Tresso purchase resulted in an increase in asset management fees of R8 million, accounting for the bulk of the increase in other operating expenses. Although property expenses as a percentage of revenue have increased, this was mainly due to an increase in expenses such as assessment rates and insurance that were recovered from tenants and the recoveries are included in revenue. Investment income declined as the company had sold a major portion of its listed property investments by 30 June 2005, in line with its decision to disinvest from listed property investments, other than its strategic stake in Metboard Properties Ltd, a specialised industrial fund.



Vacancy levels

Excluding premises that are in the course of major redevelopment, vacancies have declined from 4.8% at 30 June 2005 to 4.2% at 31 December 2005.



Prospects

The Growthpoint board anticipates that, subject to market conditions remaining stable, Growthpoint's distributions for the full year ending 30 June 2006 should show similar growth to that experienced in the first half.

Growthpoint has made an offer to Tresso Trading 119 (Pty) Ltd ("Tresso") to acquire a portfolio of properties from Tresso ("the Tresso property portfolio") for an aggregate purchase consideration of R1 632 663 000. The proposed acquisition is subject to the fulfilment of certain suspensive conditions. The purchase consideration will be settled as to 44.67% cash ("cash consideration") and 55.33% in new Growthpoint linked units ("linked unit consideration").



The cash consideration is to be raised by Growthpoint utilising short- term debt facilities which it is anticipated will be refinanced utilising the Commercial Mortgage Backed Securitisation structure.



The linked unit consideration, comprising Growthpoint linked units of one ordinary share linked to ten variable rate debentures of 250c, will be issued at an ex-dividend price of 1 065c per linked unit. This represents a discount of 3.2% to Growthpoint's closing price of 1 100c on the JSE on Thursday, 19 January 2006, being the date on which the final offer to acquire the Tresso property portfolio was approved by the Growthpoint board of directors. A total of 84 821 596 new linked units will be issued in terms of the linked unit consideration, which will represent approximately 10.8% of the total Growthpoint linked units in issue at the completion of the proposed acquisition. The new linked units will be issued within seven working days of the date of registration and transfer of the Tresso property portfolio into the name of Growthpoint.

Growthpoint has launched its a structured R5 billion commercial mortgage backed securitisation (CMBS) programme. The notes are linked to the 3-month JIBAR (Johannesburg Inter Bank Agreed Rate). The issue is secured by 36 investment properties across South Africa valued at R1.34 billion with a total gross lettable area of 259 371m2. "The majority of our securitisation bonds were rated AAA.zaf by Fitch Ratings, and achieved a credit margin of 0.34% over 3-month JIBAR while the transaction achieved a weighted average credit margin of only 0.47% over 3-month JIBAR," said Growthpoint Properties Norbert Sasse.

On 31 August 2005, Growthpoint published on SENS its unaudited preliminary results for the year ended 30 June 2005. These results did not include the accrual of future rental escalations as required in terms of circular 7/2005 issued by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants in August 2005. The company was not in a position to determine these figures at the time, as this involved having computer programmes written to extract the information, verifying the data and checking and auditing the results. This process has been completed and the company's annual report was posted to linked unitholders on 8 November 2005.



The increase in revenue has resulted in an opposite reduction in the fair value adjustment on revaluation of investment property, with the result that earnings remained unchanged in each period. These adjustments are purely accounting entries and do not impact on cash flows or distributions to linked unitholders. The company believes that accounting for future lease escalations in current periods is misleading and does not reflect the economic and legal realities. In the South African context operating leases contain escalation clauses to take into account expected future inflation.



Linked unitholders are advised that the Annual General Meeting of the company will be held at 9.00 a.m. on Wednesday 30 November 2005 at 100 Grayston Drive, Sandton.

Growthpoint has concluded an agreement to sell certain properties to the Growthpoint Securitisation Warehouse Trust for an aggregate sale consideration of R442.7 million in commencement of its CMBS programme. The Property Portfolio comprises the properties acquired from the Lyons Corporate Lease Fund as well as the properties known as Paddocks and Menlyn Piazza, all recently acquired by Growthpoint. The effective date of the disposal will be the date of transfer of the Property Portfolio, which is expected to be before the end of October 2005.

The sale consideration will be settled as follows on the transfer date:

*R275 million by way of loan account in favour of Growthpoint between the Trust and Growthpoint; and

*R167.7 million by way of a capital contribution by Growthpoint to the Trust.



Rationale and proposed benefits of the Transaction and Growthpoint's CMBS (Commercial Mortgage Backed Securitisation) programme:

The proposed benefits of Growthpoint's CMBS programme include:

*lower average cost of borrowings;

*diversification of borrowing sources;

*increased competitive advantage of Growthpoint to make value enhancing acquisitions; and

The effective date of the acquisition will be the date of transfer of City Mall, which is subject to Competition Commission approval. The anticipated date of transfer is expected to be before the end of December 2005

Growthpoint has concluded an agreement with Investec Property Group Ltd (`IPG`), in terms of which Growthpoint will acquire Healthcare Park for a total purchase consideration of R65 million.. The effective date of the acquisition will be the date of transfer of Healthcare Park, which is subject to Competition Commission approval. The anticipated date of transfer is expected to be before the end of December 2005. Growthpoint will acquire Healthcare Park for a total purchase consideration of R65 million, which will be settled in cash on date of transfer and registration of Healthcare Park into the name of Growthpoint, by utilising Growthpoint`s existing debt facilities.

Healthcare Park comprises a office park with a gross lettable area of 14 575m2, situated in Woodmead, Johannesburg, which is an established office node with easy access to the M1 Freeway. The improvements consist of 16 stand alone buildings set in a park-like environment adjacent to the Johannesburg Country Club and golf courses. The office buildings are all low-rise and range between 400m2 to 1 300m2 gross lettable area per building. A communal building that complements the offices accommodates a restaurant, canteen, meeting rooms, boardrooms and auditorium facilities. The buildings, six of which are double storey and the remaining single storey, are flexible and can accommodate single or multiple tenants and are capable of alternative use in its present condition. The acquisition will not have a material effect on the earnings per Growthpoint linked unit, distribution per Growthpoint linked unit or net asset value per Growthpoint linked unit.



In terms of Section 10.7 of the Listings Requirements of the JSE the transaction is regarded as a small related party transaction as IPG are the managers of Growthpoint and are responsible for the asset management and property administration of the Growthpoint property portfolio. Accordingly, Growthpoint has provided the JSE with written confirmation (`the fair and reasonable opinion`) from an independent professional expert that the terms of the acquisition are fair and reasonable to Growthpoint linked unitholders.

Apart from normal rental escalations, the 21% increase in revenue of R1 014 million (R837 million) was due to additional income from properties acquired during the year and also due to the timing of acquisitions such as the Investec property acquisition effective only for four months in the previous year and Waterfall Mall effective only for three months in the previous year. The operating margin once again improved, from 72.5% of revenue in 2004 to 74.8% in 2005, as the property expense ratio decreased from 27.5% to 25.2% of revenue. Net income after taxation rose to R482 million (R443 million) while a headline loss of 70.63c per linked unit (29.13c earnings) was reported. The decrease in investment income was due to the sale of the bulk of the listed property investment portfolio in the period from December 2004 to June 2005. A final dividend of 37.70cps was declared.



Prospects

The Growthpoint board anticipates that, subject to market conditions remaining stable, Growthpoint`s distributions for the year ending 30 June 2006, should show similar growth to that experienced in the current year.

*ApexHi Properties Ltd `A` units

*ApexHi Properties Ltd `B` units

*Freestone Property Holdings Ltd

*iFour Properties Ltd

*Martprop Property Fund

*SA Retail Properties Ltd

The disposal proceeds will be utilised by Growthpoint to re-invest into physical properties and to settle existing debt. The original cost of the units sold was R409 million. The amount received in excess of the cost of the portfolio represents a capital profit of R262 million and will not significantly affect Growthpoint`s distributions. The disposals will give rise to capital gains taxation of approximately R38 million.
