REVIEWED RESULTS For the year ended 31 August 2021


Rebosis is a JSE listed real estate investment trust (REIT) with a high quality diversified
portfolio across commercial and retail assets. The majority of its commercial income enjoys
a sovereign underpin from national, provincial and local government departments across 35
buildings. The retail portfolio has a mix of regional and super regional malls, spread
across Gauteng and the Eastern Cape.


Net property income decreased by 10% when compared on a like for like basis to the prior
year. This is as a result of reversions on the portfolio, as well as increase in rates
assessments. The distributable income before tax excluding once off items (capitalised
interest and operating expenses on deferred payment liability) is R83 million.

The higher distributable income is as a result of a decrease in the head office costs
of the group to R151 million (2020: R175 million) and the decrease in finance costs
relating to bank facilities to R602 million (2020: R828 million), due to the repo rate
cuts and the repayment of facilities using the proceeds from the Medscheme sale.

The Board deemed it prudent to deleverage the fund and has therefore resolved to not
declare a full year dividend for the year ended 31 August 2021 (31 August 2020: Nil).

The retail and commercial property portfolio was independently valued at year end,
taking into account COVID-19 considerations. During the period, proceeds from the
disposal of Medscheme were used to settle Standard Bank facilities to the value of R89.1 million.

The fair value of the Rebosis Property Portfolio as at 31 August 2021 amounted to
R13.1 billion (0.3% growth year on year, excluding the Medscheme building disposal).
This is mainly attributable to successful government lease renewals completed, and
the continued strong covenant tenant profile in the retail portfolio with long term
lease profile.
