SUMMARISED AUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2021 AND FINAL DIVIDEND ANNOUNCEMENT
The Group delivered significantly improved results in FY2021, returning to overall profitability in what remained a
challenging operating environment. The improved performance is primarily attributable to reduced losses in Australia,
having provided for substantial losses in the previous reporting period to reach the physical completion of the
Western Roads Upgrade (WRU) project. Additional losses incurred in current period primarily represent the cost of
attaining commercial acceptance on the project. The stronger results were also lifted supported by a rejuvenated
performance from the African operations which have recovered well from the impact of Covid-19 in the latter half
of FY2020, increasing both revenue and profitability in FY2021. In the United Kingdom (UK), both the Byrne Group
and Russells-WBHO delivered solid results, although activity tapered in the second half of the financial year.
- Revenue for the year decreased by 11% to R38 billion (2020: R43 billion)
- Earnings per share increased by 163% to 594 cents per share (2020: a loss per share of 937 cents)
- Headline earnings per share increased by 167% to 620 cents per share (2020: a loss per share of 923 cents)
- Final dividend declared of 205 cents per share resulting in a total dividend for the year of 205 cents per share (2020: Nil cents per share)
- The net asset value amounts to R5.6 billion (2020: R5.9 billion)
