 measurement and recognition requirements of International Financial
 Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as
 issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements
 as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council and to also, as a
 minimum, contain the information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial
 Reporting and the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act of 2002. The
 accounting policies applied in the preparation of the consolidated
 financial statements from which the summary consolidated financial
 statements were derived are in terms of International Financial Reporting
 Standards and are consistent with those accounting policies applied in
 the preparation of the previous consolidated annual financial statements.

 The non-permissible income is dispensed to the Oasis Crescent Fund Trust
 which is a registered public benefit organisation. The accounting
 policies are consistent with those applied in the most recent
 consolidated annual financial statements of the Fund.

 The consolidated financial statements are prepared on the historical cost
 basis as modified by the revaluation of investment properties and
 financial assets at fair value through profit or loss.

 These summary consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31
 March 2019 have been audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., who
 expressed an unmodified opinion thereon. The auditor also expressed an
unmodified opinion on the annual financial statements from which these
summary consolidated financial statements were derived.

A copy of the auditor’s report on the summary consolidated financial
statements and of the auditor’s report on the annual consolidated
financial statements are available for inspection at the company’s
registered office, together with the financial statements identified in
the respective auditor’s reports.

These summary audited results were compiled by the financial director,
Michael Swingler CA(SA).

Any reference to the future financial performance of the Fund contained
in this announcement has not been reviewed or reported on by the Fund’s
auditors. The auditor’s report does not necessarily report on all of the
information contained in this announcement/financial results. Unitholders
are therefore advised that in order to obtain a full understanding of the
nature of the auditor’s engagement they should obtain a copy of the
auditor’s report together with the accompanying financial information
from the issuer’s registered office.

Changes in accounting policies

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance
with International Financial Reporting Standards on a basis consistent
with the prior period except for the adoption of the following new or
revised standards.

Application of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments

In the current period, the group has applied IFRS 9 Financial Instruments
(as revised in July 2014) and the related consequential amendments to
other IFRSs. IFRS 9 replaces IAS 39 Financial Instruments and introduces
new requirements for:
  ?   Classification   and  measurement   of   financial   assets   and   financial
      liabilities; and
  ?   Impairment for financial assets.


Details of these new requirements as well as their impact on the group's
financial statements are described below.

The group has applied IFRS 9 in accordance with the transition provisions
set out in IFRS 9.

Classification and measurement of financial assets
The date of initial application (i.e. the date on which the group has
assessed its existing financial assets and financial liabilities in terms
of the requirements of IFRS 9) is 01 April 2018. Accordingly, the group
has applied the requirements of IFRS 9 to instruments that have not been
derecognised as at 01 April 2018 and has not applied the requirements to
instruments that have already been derecognised as at 01 April 2018.
Comparatives in relation to instruments that have not been derecognised
as at 01 April 2018 have been restated.

All recognised financial assets that are within the scope of IFRS 9 are
required to be subsequently measured at amortised cost or fair value on
the basis of the entity’s business model for managing the financial
assets and the contractual cash flow characteristics of the financial
assets.

The measurement requirements are summarised below:
? Debt investments that are held within a business model whose objective
is to collect the contractual cash flows, and that have contractual cash
flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal
amount outstanding, are subsequently measured at amortised cost.
? Debt investments that are held within a business model whose objective
is both to collect the contractual cash flows and to sell the debt
instruments, and that have contractual cash flows that are solely
payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding,
are subsequently measured at fair value through other comprehensive
income.
?   All other debt investments and equity investments are subsequently
measured at fair value through profit or loss, unless specifically
designated otherwise.

The group may irrevocably designate a debt investment that meets the
amortised cost or fair value through other comprehensive income criteria
as measured at fair value through profit or loss if doing so eliminates
or significantly reduces an accounting mismatch.

When a debt investment measured at fair value through other comprehensive
income is derecognised, the cumulative gain or loss previously recognised
in other comprehensive income is reclassified from equity to profit or
loss as a reclassification adjustment. In contrast, for an equity
investment   designated  as  measured   at  fair   value  through   other
comprehensive income, the cumulative gain or loss previously recognised
in other comprehensive income is not subsequently reclassified to profit
or loss.

Debt instruments that are subsequently measured at amortised cost or at
fair value through other comprehensive income are subject to new
impairment provisions using an expected loss model. This contrasts the
incurred loss model of IAS 39.

The group does not hold any debt instruments.

The directors reviewed and assessed the group's existing financial assets
as at 01 April 2018 based on the facts and circumstances that existed at
that date and concluded that the initial application of IFRS 9 has had
the following impact on the group's financial assets as regards to their
classification and measurement:

Application of IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

The impact of IFRS 15 is considered to be immaterial as the majority of

OCPF has made a change to the presentation of Income in order               to
separately disclose fair value adjustments on financial instruments.

Realised and unrealised gains were previously reflected in ‘Income from
investments excluding non-permissible income’ and is now reflected
separately as ‘Realised gain on disposal of available-for-sale financial
assets’ and ‘Fair value adjustment on financial assets at fair value
through profit or loss’.

The change does not impact on the operating profit, distribution per unit
and basic earnings and diluted earnings per unit reported in the previous
period.

The “Profit for the period before fair value adjustments to financial
assets and realised gains” is presented on the face of the statement of
comprehensive income, being the Fund’s operating results excluding fair
value adjustments on financial assets. Management believes it to be
relevant to the understanding of the Fund's financial performance. The
measure is used for internal performance analysis and provides additional
useful information on underlying trends to unitholders. This measure is
not a defined term under IFRS and may therefore not be comparable with
similarly titled measures reported by other entities. It is not intended
to be a substitute for, or superior to, measures as required by IFRS.

Fair Value Movements on Financial Assets Reserve

During the reporting period, the Fund created the Fair Value Movements on
Financial Assets Reserve in the Statement of Changes in Unitholders'
Funds. The purpose of this reserve is to transfer to or from all fair
value movements on "Financial Assets at Fair Value through profit or
loss" that are not available for distribution.

The valuation of investment properties includes comparable bulk sales,
discounted cash flow and net income capitalisation, using contracted
rental income and other cash flows. Capitalisation rates used in the
valuations are the most recent rates published by the South African
Property   Owners   Association  (SAPOA).   The    principal   assumptions
underlying estimation of fair value are those related to the receipt of
contractual rentals, expected future market rentals, void levels ranging
from 0% to 5%, maintenance requirements and appropriate discount rates.
These valuations are regularly compared to actual market yield data,
actual transactions by the Fund and those reported by the market.
Valuations were carried out as at 31 March 2019 by Mills Fitchet Magnus
Penny,   an   independent,   professional   valuer    registered   without
restriction in terms of the Property Valuers Act No. 47 of 2000.
The valuation of investment properties requires judgement in the
determination of future cash flows and an appropriate capitalisation
rate which varies between 7.70% and 10.50% (2018: 7.5% and 10.25%).
Changes in the capitalisation rate attributable to changes in market
conditions can have a significant impact on property valuations. The
valuation of investment properties may also be influenced by changes in
vacancy rates.

Fair value estimation:
IFRS 13 requires that an entity discloses for each class of assets and
liabilities measured at fair value, the level in the fair value hierarchy
into which the fair value measurements are categorised in their entirety.
The fair value hierarchy reflects the significance of the inputs used in
making fair value measurements.

The fair value hierarchy has the following levels:
- Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or
liabilities (level 1).
- Inputs other than quoted prices included within level 1 that are
observable for the asset or liability, either directly (that is, as
prices) or indirectly (that is, derived from prices) (level 2).
- Inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable
market data (that is, unobservable inputs) (level 3).

The following table presents the Fund's assets and liabilities that are
measured at fair value at 31 March 2019:

The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets is based
on quoted market prices at the statements of financial position date. A
market is regarded as active if quoted prices are readily and regularly
available from an exchange, dealer, broker, industry group, pricing
service, or regulatory agency, and those prices represent actual and
regularly occurring market transactions on an arm's length basis. These
instruments are included in level 1.

The instruments included in level 2 comprises of Irish stock exchange
property equity investments in Shari'ah compliant instruments classified as
financial assets at fair value through profit or loss. The fair value of
financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined
by using valuation techniques. These valuation techniques maximise the use
of observable market data where it is available and rely as little as
possible on entity specific estimates. If all significant inputs required
to fair value an instrument are observable, the instrument is included in
level 2. If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on
observable market data, the instrument is included in level 3.

Specific valuation techniques used to value financial instruments include:
Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss
Oasis Crescent Global Property Equity Fund:
The fair value of investments in the Oasis Crescent Global Property Equity
Fund is determined using the closing net asset value NAV price published
by Oasis Global Management Company (Ireland), the management company of
the fund, and listed on the Irish Stock Exchange. The shares are not
actively traded on the Irish Stock Exchange and are therefore not included
in Level 1.
Oasis Crescent International Property Equity Feeder Fund:
The fair value of investments in Oasis Crescent International Property
Equity Feeder Fund is determined using the closing (NAV) price published
by Oasis Crescent Management Company Limited, the management company of
the fund. These investments are not actively traded on an exchange and are
therefore not classified as Level 1.
Investment in listed property funds
The fair value of these investments is determined using the closing bid
price as at statement of financial position date. These shares are listed
and traded on the JSE Stock Exchange and are therefore classified as Level
1.
Other financial assets at fair value through profit or loss
Oasis Crescent Income Fund
The fair value of investments in Oasis Crescent Income Fund is determined
using the closing NAV price published by Oasis Crescent Management Company
Ltd., the management company of the fund. These investments are not
actively traded on an exchange and are therefore not classified as Level
1.

INTRODUCTION
The Oasis Crescent Property Fund (Fund) is a well-diversified REIT invested
in South African direct and listed property investments and high quality
global listed REITs with no debt and substantial reserves, which provides
flexibility to take advantage of opportunities.

The Fund’s direct property portfolio is well positioned to take advantage
of a recovery in growth in the South African Economy, with the majority of
the portfolio situated in the Western Cape which has the best property
fundamentals in South Africa. The Fund is well placed to take advantage of
long-term growth in the logistics sector and continues to target national
and multi-national players in this sector. The increase in the percentage
of national and multi-national tenants from 71% of tenants in 2018 to the
current level of 81% reflects the high tenant quality.

The objective of the Manager is to protect and grow the real wealth of
investors by providing sustainable growth in NAV and delivering a
consistent income stream that has potential to grow. Our focused approach
has delivered significant real wealth creation for investors with an
annualised total unitholder return of 12.5% relative to annualised
inflation of 5.8% since inception, resulting in a real return of 6.7%. Your
Fund’s annualised total intrinsic value return is 12.6% per annum since
inception.

MARKET OVERVIEW
The statements by both the US Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank
that there will be no rate hikes in 2019 have impacted positively on Global
REITS. New supply in the global developed property markets has remained
disciplined and net absorption remains positive in most of the markets.
REITS with a high exposure to the major global cities, positive secular
demand drivers, enhancing refurbishments and superior balance sheets are
well positioned to outperform.

In South Africa, the requirement for supply chain efficiency remains a
positive driver of demand for logistics space in the industrial sector
while shopping centres that are appealing destinations or offer convenience
are better positioned to grow their trading densities and rentals in a more
competitive environment. The demand for South African office space is
linked to confidence and the employment outlook, which is going to take
time to recover. Our portfolio takes into consideration the risks related
to the SA property sector.

The Fund has focused on building a portfolio with a combination of high
quality direct property investments and global listed REITs with properties
located in the major global cities, which adds geographic and currency
diversification. The direct property portfolio includes exposure to the
retail, industrial and office sectors with a high exposure to the Western
Cape. A newly developed retail offering, located at The Ridge, KwaZulu-
Natal, was completed during this period. This development introduces
another retail category at The Ridge which will contribute towards
attracting more shoppers to the mall. In order to attract world class
tenants, there is continuous investment in and maintenance of the direct
properties. The global investments consist of the Oasis Crescent Global
Property Equity Fund which is well positioned with a focus on Global REITs
with the best quality assets and balance sheets. The Cash and other listed
SA Investments provide flexibility for the Fund to pursue growth
opportunities.

During the period, the Fund took the opportunity to renew leases with                  key
tenants and entered into leases with major national tenants, which                     has
contributed positively towards direct property income. Filling                          of
vacancies at favorable rates contributed 5% towards the increase                        in
direct property net income with escalations contributing a further 5%.

The investment income earned from the global investments increased by 4%
due to an 8% increase in the US$ distribution and a 5% increase in the
number of units, offsetting the Rand strengthening by 9%. The 8% increase
in the distribution per unit in US$ from the Oasis Crescent Global
Property Equity Fund was driven by the average distribution growth of 5%
at the REIT level and the benefit from a stronger Pound, Euro and Rand to
the US Dollar. Cash and local investment income benefited from additional
investments and a significant increase in the cash flow yield of the
Oasis Crescent Income Fund during the current financial period. SA listed
property investment income was lower due to the recycling of investments.
The investment income earned from the global investments increased by 19%
and benefited from a weaker Rand. Cash and local investment income
benefited from additional investments and a significant increase in the
cash flow yield of the Oasis Crescent Income Fund during the current
financial period. SA listed property investment income was lower due to
the recycling of investments. The higher service charge expense is due to
the increase in the market capitalisation of the Fund. The weighted
average units in issue increased due to a high proportion of unitholders
electing to reinvest their dividends in additional units as well as the
higher average unit price during the period. The Fund continues to focus
on renewing leases coming up for expiry and further improvements in the
quality of the tenant mix.

Like for like change in average retail rental per m² increased by 6% year
on year. The total year on year increase of 2% is due to the change in
tenant mix as a result of securing high quality tenants on long term
leases. Average office rental per m² increased in line with annual rental
escalations. Like for like change in average industrial rental per m²
increased by 7% year on year. The total year on year increase of 16% is
due to the Fund leasing the new modern logistics facility which was
acquired during the prior period at a rental above the average rental at
other premises.

During the period, the Fund was impacted by partial vacancy as short term
leases came to an end. This impact was offset by active asset management
through tactical filling of vacancies and the development of an
additional retail offering at The Ridge.

There has been a significant improvement in the tenant profile due to the
leasing efforts of the team.

Investment Portfolio Characteristics
The investment in high quality global listed REITs provides geographic and
sector diversification. The Oasis Crescent Global Property Equity Fund
displays very attractive valuation characteristics with an average cash
flow yield of 6.8% and dividend yield of 5.0% which offers value relative
to the average bond yield of 2.1% and inflation at 1.7%.

The Fund invests its liquid reserves in the Oasis Crescent Income Fund
which provides competitive, Shariah compliant income and flexibility to
take advantage of opportunities.

OUTLOOK
The strategy of The Manager is to ensure a high quality Portfolio with low
vacancies   and   a  tenant   profile   increasingly   focused  on   large,
institutional, national or multinational tenants. Going forward, we remain
focused on the lease expiry profile and will look to renew or replace
leases in line with our leasing strategy. The fund will continue to look to
take advantage of acquisition or development opportunities in line with our
strategy of diversifying and growing our income profile. The newly
developed retail offering at The Ridge further enhances the property
portfolio and will contribute towards improving the tenant mix by
attracting high quality tenants.

  Notes:

  1. Unitholders reinvesting their distribution in new units are alerted
     to the fact that the new units will be listed 3 business days after
     the last day to trade and that these new units can only be traded 3
     business days after the last day to trade, due to the fact that
     settlement of the units will be 3 business days after the record
     date, which differs from the conventional one business day after the
     record date settlement process.
  2. Units may not be dematerialised or rematerialised between Wednesday,
     5 June 2019 and Friday, 7 June 2019, both days inclusive.
  3. The above dates and times are subject to change. Any changes will
     be announced on SENS.
  4. All times quoted above are South African times.
  5. Dematerialised unitholders should provide their CSDP or broker with
     their election instructions by the cut-off time stipulated in terms
     of their custody agreement with such CSDP or broker.
  6. If no election is made, the distribution accrued to the unitholder
     will be used to purchase additional units.

Fractions

Trading in the electronic Strate environment does not permit fractions
and fractional entitlements in respect of units. Accordingly, should a
unitholder’s entitlement to new units, calculated in accordance with the
ratio mentioned above, give rise to a fraction of a new unit, such
fraction will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, resulting in
allocations of whole units and a payment to the unitholder in respect of
the remaining cash amount due to that unitholder under the distribution.

Foreign shareholders

The publication of this announcement and/or applicable documents and the
right to reinvest the distribution in jurisdictions other than South
Africa may be restricted by law and a failure to comply with any of these
restrictions may constitute a violation of the securities laws of any
such jurisdictions. OCPF units have not been and will not be registered
for the purposes of the election under the securities laws of the United
Kingdom, European Economic Area or EEA, Canada, United States of America,
Japan or Australia and accordingly are not being offered, sold, taken up,
re-sold or delivered directly or indirectly to recipients with registered
addresses in such jurisdictions.

Tax implications

In respect of the distribution, the manager hereby informs unitholders,
who will receive the distribution, that for taxation purposes, OCPF is a
REIT as defined in the Income Tax Act as from 1 April 2013 and,
accordingly, the tax implications of the distribution have changed as
from that date. The distribution will not be exempt from income tax in
terms of section 10(1)(k) of the Income Tax Act.

For South African tax residents, the distribution will be exempt from
dividends tax in terms of section 64F(l) of the Income Tax Act, provided
that you, as unitholder, provide the transfer secretary or your nominee,
custodian or CSDP with confirmation of your tax residence status in the
prescribed form. If you do not provide the required residence status,
they will have no choice but to withhold dividends tax at a rate of 20%.

For non-resident unitholders, for South African tax purposes, the
distribution received by a non-resident unitholder from a REIT will be
subject to dividend withholding tax at 20%, unless the rate is reduced in
terms of any applicable agreement for the avoidance of double taxation
(“DTA”) between South Africa and the country of tax residence of the
unitholder. Non-resident unitholders that believe that a reduced rate of
tax applies in respect of their applicable DTA should contact the
transfer secretaries or their nominee, custodian      or   CSDP   for   the
prescribed form to record the reduced rate of tax.

Where dividends tax is withheld at 20% for non-resident unitholders:
-    the reinvestment ratio for non-resident unitholders will be 2.09083
     units at 2 198 cents per unit, for every 100 (one hundred) units
     held on the record date;
-    should such unitholders elect to receive the distribution in cash,
     they will receive 4 595.63832 cents per 100 units held on the record
     date.

Kindly contact the transfer secretaries, or your nominee, custodian or
CSDP for a copy of the prescribed declaration form.

The Income Tax Act sections applicable to the distributions made are as
follows:

Property income distribution from a REIT – section 10(1)(k) and section
64F(l)

Both resident and non-resident unitholders are encouraged to consult
their professional tax advisors with regard to their individual tax
liability in this regard.

A circular will be posted out to unitholders on Friday, 17 May 2019, in
respect of the unit and income distribution.

The number of units in issue at the date of the aforesaid distribution is
62 484 150. The income tax reference number of the Fund is 3354212148.
