UPDATED TRADING STATEMENT
Shareholders are referred to the Company’s unaudited interim results for the six months ended
28 February 2019 published on SENS on 13 May 2019 (“Interim Results”). It was stated in the Interim
Results that “The Board deemed it prudent to deleverage the fund and has therefore resolved to not
declare an interim dividend, but rather intends to distribute a full year dividend at the final distribution
date, being after the conclusion of its year ending 31 August 2019”.
Shareholders are also referred to the renewal of joint cautionary announcement published on SENS on
28 October 2019 by Rebosis and Delta Property Fund Limited, wherein the parties reconfirm their
commitment to concluding a successful transaction and that meaningful progress continues to be made
in formulating workable terms for the merger (the “Merger”). The Board of Rebosis (the “Board”) is
encouraged by the progress made and is confident that the Merger is possible. The Company continues
to have the support of its lenders and agreement to pursue the Merger on the proposed timelines.
The Board has considered various factors that will impact the Company in the context of a distribution
payment. These include current gearing levels, the desire to preserve capital in order to reduce gearing,
pressure on valuations given the current economic cycle impacting the property sector, and current
engagement on the Merger that will give rise to the optimum capital structure of the merged entity. The
Board is further cognisant of progress made in disposals of properties which will assist significantly in
the deleveraging process, but is conscious not to erode value in accelerating the process. The result is
that the Board deems it prudent and in the best interest of the Company, and the future merged entity,
not to declare a distribution.
The Board has therefore resolved to not declare a final dividend on the Rebosis A and Ordinary shares
for the year ended 31 August 2019.
The above information has not been reviewed or reported on by Rebosis’ auditors.
The Company’s financial results for the year ended 31 August 2019 will be published on
11 November 2019 where after management will engage shareholders more fully on these
