5 February 2018

This report outlines recent trading activities at Infratil’s businesses, how their growth initiatives are tracking, and salient market events.

As noted in November’s Interim Report, over the last decade Infratil has invested $4,230 million. 25% went to buying shares in companies and 75% was spent within Infratil’s companies building and buying real assets such as power stations, buses, and airport terminals. This investment is the source of Infratil’s earnings and value growth, and the 17% per annum compound return delivered to shareholders since 1994.

Given that investment in bricks, mortar and equipment averages about $320 million per year, 2017’s outlay was on the low side, but as explained below, there are reasons to anticipate a pick up.

Notwithstanding a lower than hoped for level of investment, 2017 was a very good year for Infratil’s shareholders who received a return of 26.8% (NZX50 22.0% and ASX All Ords 19.1%).
