Revenue for the year decreased to R127.9 million (R136.5 million) and operating profit was lower at R115.4 million (R121.1 million). Profit for the period fell to R72 million (R79.8 million). In addition, headline earnings per share grew to 55.12 cents per share (54.40 cents per share).



Dividend

The board has approved and notice is hereby given of the final gross dividend of 18.34951 cents per share for the year ended 28 February 2019.



Company outlook

Newpark will continue to focus on a disciplined approach to the acquisition of high quality properties that offer meaningful growth in both capital and income. In the year ahead, the emphasis will be on filling the 24 Central vacancy, introducing an appropriately empowered partner into Newpark's shareholder base and searching for acquisitions that offer value.



The Board is mindful of the current pressures experienced by tenants in the mixed-use (retail and office) segment, manifesting in higher than desired vacancies for the short-term. Notwithstanding, over the full year Newpark has budgeted to deliver growth of 6,0% to 8,0% on its 2019 distributions of 43.30 cps and, more importantly, to be well positioned for above average growth thereafter.



The forecast is based on the assumption that a stable macro- economic environment will prevail, no material tenant default will occur, operating cost increases will not exceed budget. This forecast has not been audited or reviewed by the Company's auditors.



25-Jan-2019
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that as a result of further increased vacancies and tenant defaults in the Group's mixed use segment the board of directors has decided to revise the outlook for distributable earnings performance for the full year ending 28 February 2019 downwards from a decrease in distributable earnings of between 6.0% and 8.0% to a decrease in distributable earnings of between 16% and 18% compared with the 12 months ended 28 February 2018. The outlook for financial year 2019, previously communicated to the market is no longer expected to be achievable due to a further deterioration in market conditions and the direct impact this has had on the Group's vacancy profile and tenant performance. The board of directors remains mindful of the current pressures experienced by tenants in the mixed-use (retail and office) segment, manifesting in higher than desired vacancies for the short-term.



The revised forecast is based on no further material vacancies arising and no further material tenant default occurring.



The financial results of Newpark for the year ended 28 February 2019 will be published on or about 31 May 2019.

The board remains mindful of the current pressures experienced by tenants in the mixed-use (retail and office) segment, manifesting in higher than desired vacancies for the short-term.

Newpark released its maiden results following its listing on the JSE on 3 February 2016. For this reason, there are no comparatives. Revenue came in R95.2 million whilst operating profit was recorded at R56.1 million. Total comprehensive income for the period was recorded at R363.1 million. In addition, headline earnings per share came in at 34.72 cents per share>



Dividend

In accordance with the Pre-Listing Statement (?PLS?), the board of directors of Newpark (?the Board?) has not declared a dividend for the 1 month period ended 29 February 2016.



Outlook

The board is confident that Newpark will deliver on its PLS forecasts of a distribution of 49.47 cents per share for the year ended 28 February 2017. The forecast is based on the assumption that a stable macro-economic environment will prevail and operating cost increases will not be above inflation. This forecast has not been audited or reviewed by the company?s auditors.

25-May-2016
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that Newpark?s earnings per share and diluted earnings per share for the year ended 29 February 2016 are expected to be between 4 900 cents per share and 4 915 cents per share, versus the forecast earnings per share and diluted earnings per share of 303.21 as published in Newpark?s pre-listing statement issued on 26 January 2016 (the ?PLS?).



This difference is primarily due to the treatment of deferred tax on capital gains and the revaluation of investment properties, in anticipation of Newpark becoming a REIT. In the PLS, retained income was credited as a result of both the elimination of a deferred tax liability and a revaluation of investment properties, whereas in the results for the year ended 29 February 2016, the Statement of Profit or Loss was credited as a result of both the elimination of the deferred tax liability and the revaluation of investment properties.



Given that Newpark is a REIT, the directors are of the view that distribution per share is a more relevant measurement for financial results than earnings per share and headline earnings per share. Accordingly, in terms of paragraph 3.4(b)(vi) of the JSE Listings Requirements, Newpark will be adopting distribution per share as its financial results measurement for trading statement purposes, for the reporting period ending 31 August 2016 and thereafter.



Shareholders are further advised that the distributable income per share contained in the results for the year ended 29 February 2016 is expected to be in line with the forecast published in the PLS.



The financial results of Newpark for the year ended 29 February 2016 will be published on or about 31 May 2016.
