UNAUDITED Consolidated interim financial statements 
for the three months and the nine months ended 31 March 2015 (the "financial statements") 


Nature of the business 

The Company was initially incorporated in Bermuda on 16 May 2012 as a Bermudian exempted company under the laws of
Bermuda and has been operational since 01 June 2012. The Company was discontinued from Bermuda on 11 March 2015 and was
registered by continuation in Mauritius as a public company limited by shares on 11 March 2015. It holds a Category One
Global Business License as from 13 March 2015. 

On 30 March 2015 the Company transferred its primary listing from the Bermuda Stock Exchange to the Stock Exchange of
Mauritius Ltd ("SEM"). The Company has a secondary listing on the Alternative Exchange ("AltX") of the Johannesburg
Stock Exchange Limited ("JSE"). Delta International is in the process of migrating its listing on the AltX to the main
board of the JSE and will maintain two primary listings going forward. The rationale for the migrations was to attract a
more diverse shareholder base and to increase the liquidity of the shares.

The Company and its subsidiaries ("Delta International" or "the Group") have embarked on a strategy of acquiring a
portfolio of African real estate assets (excluding assets situated in South Africa) in furtherance of its objective of
investing in real estate assets that will provide strong sustainable income from high quality tenants. The Group has
been significantly restructured since the change in ownership in May 2014.


During the three month period from 01 January 2015 the focus has been on restructuring the Group and raising additional
capital to complete the acquisition of the Hollard Building, the Vodacom Building and Zimpeto Square. These assets are
all based in Maputo, Mozambique and are in line with the investment criteria of sustainable income from high quality

The Anadarko Building in Mozambique is operating as expected and remains 100% occupied. The day to day management of the
property has been bedded down and it is generating attractive returns on capital. The development of phase 2 of the
Anadarko Building is expected to commence by the end of 2015. In addition to the net rental income to be generated on
the leased building, the Group will share in the development fee without taking any development risk. The development
fee is based on the Group's existing interest in the land. The development will be pre-committed with a long-term lease
to Anadarko and will create favourable growth on forward returns for the Group. 

Anfa Place in Morocco is performing well with vacancies improving monthly. McDonald's has recently been signed up as a
new tenant. The much anticipated opening of the adjacent Four Season's hotel in September 2015 should see further
reductions in vacancies and potential uplift in the footfall. The arrears are monitored continuously with strong efforts
on collections which are yielding positive results. Management will continue to work with centre management on bedding
down the asset in order to optimise its full potential. From a macro-economic perspective Morocco has seen a record
harvest in cereal this year. With agriculture being one of the main industries this should lead to positive GDP growth
and potential strengthening of the Moroccan Dirham.

Historically the Moroccan Dirham ("MAD") has been a stable currency against the United States Dollar ("USD"). This is
due to the fact that the MAD is a managed currency having been based on a basket of currencies consisting of the Euro
and the USD, with weights of 80% and 20% respectively. This weighting has now changed to a 60% Euro, 40% USD.

Since 1 July 2014 up until 13 May 2015, the USD has gained c.20% in value against the Euro. Due to the fact that the MAD
is managed as per the high weighting to the Euro above, this translates into the USD making significant value gains
against the MAD (c.17% since 1 July 2015).

Although the MAD has lost significant value against the USD since 1 July 2015, the Moroccan economy still provides a
strong investment case. The MAD has strengthened against the USD in recent weeks and through continued strengthening
will see USD earnings on Anfa Place increase in the same manner.

The loan to value ratio of the Group at 31 March 2015 was 54.6% which is greater than the targeted 50%. This is
temporarily higher than targeted due to debt facilities drawn down on to pay for deposits on the Hollard Building and
the Vodacom Building which had not yet transferred by 31 March 2015.

The Company is committed to progressively increasing its portfolio and continues to evaluate potential opportunities
consistent with its strategy and investment principles. In the short-term the Group will continue to be focused on
increasing its investments in Mozambique and Morocco.

Changes to the Board

On 14 April 2015 the Company announced that Mr Gideon Louis Schnetler, Delta International's chief executive officer and
a director of the Company, had tendered his resignation due to unforeseen personal reasons. Mr Schnetler's resignation
is effective on 07 July 2015. The Board is currently undergoing a process of identifying an appropriate replacement for
Mr Schnetler and is over-seeing the hand-over of his responsibilities to ensure minimal disruption to the Company. The
Company is in the process of appointing new directors who have key skills in the property sector and the listed

Subsequent events 

On 20 April 2015 the Group completed the acquisition of the Hollard Building through the acquisition of 100% of the
issued shares of HM&K Properties Limited ("HM&K"). The delay in settlement of the balance owing to the HM&K shareholders
resulted in the purchase price increasing to US$14.9 million. The price increase was a direct correlation to the
increase in rentals which took place over the period of the delayed settlement and had no impact on the acquisition

On 22 April 2015 the Company raised US$39 million through the issue of 26 354 444 new ordinary shares through a private
placement. The proceeds will be utilised to fund the acquisition of the Vodacom Building, Zimpeto Square and to retire a
portion of debt associated with the completed acquisition of the Hollard Building. The equity raise brought on
additional shareholders including the Public Investment Corporation, the largest pension fund in Africa, who now own 25%
of the shares in issue. The Group has commenced applications with the Mozambique Central Bank for the approval of a
foreign loan to be brought into Mozambique to complete the acquisition of the Vodacom Building and Zimpeto Square.


The Board remains confident on the prospects of the business and the future returns.

The aforegoing forecast statement and the information underlying such statement are the responsibility of the Board and
has not been reviewed or reported on by the Group's external auditors. The forecast is based on assumptions, including
assumptions that a stable regional, political and economic environment as well as a stable global macro-economic
environment will prevail.
