Goodman (NZ) Limited, advises that GMT’s FY23 annual result is expected to include a $238 million or 4.7% reduction in the fair value of its property assets. Draft valuation reports from independent valuers indicate that GMT’s portfolio will be valued at around $4.8 billion at 31 March 2023.

The weighted average capitalisation rate of GMT’s investment portfolio is forecast to be 5.2%, compared to 4.2% in March 2022.

James Spence, Chief Executive Officer said, “After a long period of sustained value growth, the changing interest rate environment is impacting real estate investment yields.”

“GMT continues to experience strong portfolio fundamentals. Occupancy of over 99% and annual market rental growth of 19% have significantly reduced the impact of softening capitalisation rates on valuations.”

The forecast valuation movement is expected to reduce net tangible assets by around 17 cents per unit. The valuation movement remains subject to finalisation of independent valuation reports and audit of GMT’s financial statements.

Further details will be provided with the FY23 annual result announcement on 18 May 2023.
