Redefine well positioned for upward cycle

JSE-listed REIT, Redefine Properties, says its balance sheet is in a stronger position than it was before the COVID-19 pandemic struck and that it should be well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities by the end of the financial year in August. 

JSE listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties has announced the decision by its Board to resolve to not pay a dividend in respect of FY2020 in the face of ongoing Covid-19 uncertainty.

Redefine Properties, which turned 21 as a listed company this year, is well placed to benefit from logistics growth in Poland after hard lockdown restrictions locally and dividends withheld by offshore investments significantly dampened results for the year ended 31 August 2020. 

JSE listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties is pleased to announce that it has reached a mutually beneficial and alternative arrangement relating to the conclusion of the sale of the Mall of the South (MOTS).

Redefine Properties (JSE: RDF) continues to advance its strategic priority of strengthening its balance sheet to offset the ongoing uncertainty and negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Redefine Properties (JSE: RDF) announced today that its competitive bidding process to sell its interest in Journal’s two student properties in Australia has been concluded at A$459 million.

JSE listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties (JSE: RDF) along with equity partners Madison International Realty and Griffin Real Estate in European Logistics Investment BV  and in joint venture with its strategic development partner Panattoni Europe.

With the COVID-19 virus and related uncertainty continuing to weigh on businesses, Redefine Properties (JSE: RDF) has announced a 32% fall in its distributable income per share for the six months ended 29 February 2020 to 33.46 cents from 49.19 cents in the prior comparable period.

Marc Wainer, founder, former Chairman and CEO of Redefine Properties, who started his career working in his parents' grocery and fish shop in Yeoville and went on to build one of the country’s largest and diversified Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) listed on the JSE passed away earlier today at the age of 71.

While the overall risk environment has heightened since last year, a strategic focus on balance sheet management and a relentless pursuit on delivering sustained value is providing Redefine with a buffer against the economic challenges.
