Redefine growth

Listed property loan stock company Redefine Income Fund is expecting 19% growth in distributions for the financial year to August next year — this due to the solid performance by its property portfolio as well as its acquisition of top-performing Cape-based Spearhead Property Holdings.

Redefine Income Fund today announced a first quarter distribution of 11,8 cents per linked unit for the period to 30 November 2006.  This includes income from Spearhead Property Group from July to November 2006.

The Supreme Court on Friday 17th November sanctioned the Redefine Income Fund / Spearhead Property Holdings merger for which an overwhelming majority of the shareholders in both groups had already given their approval.  The merger is therefore now a fait accompli and Spearhead will delist from the JSE within the next week.
