Dana Group International Investments: Final Results for Year Ended 30th June 2019

Wed 27th November, 2019 7:00am

Dana Group International Investments Limited and its subsidiaries

(the “Group” or the “Company”)

Consolidated Financial Results for the Year Ended 30(th) June 2019

Chairman’s Statement

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present the Group’s
consolidated, audited financial statements for the financial year ended 30(th)
June 2019 together with selected notes thereto.

The period under assessment was challenging. As experienced in 2018-19,
property sales and rental values are also expected to decline in the short
run, owing to the large volume of supply relative to current demand. Though
enduring in the same vein, the Directors anticipate further price changes to
be modest and the rate of waning may slow down. They expect that the New Year
may see an increase in real estate buyers entering the market.

The upcoming Expo 2020 is also expected to have an encouraging impact on the
Dubai property market. The Dubai real estate market could benefit from the
possible increase in economic activity as the Expo 2020 draws closer,
attracting tourists as well as new residents into the country.

The UAE Federal Government’s reforms of the residency rules in the UAE,
including the introduction of long-term visas for eligible individuals, could
also see more prospective residents viewing the UAE as a long-term option.


During the year under review, Mr. Mustafa Saifuddin - Director and CEO -
stepped down from the Board and Mr. Nawaf Qassim Shahin Abdullah was appointed
as the new Executive Director and CEO.


The comprehensive loss for the financial year ended 30th June 2019 was USD
(44.88) million (2018: comprehensive income of USD 33.92 million) and the net
profit for the year was USD 34,905 (2018: net loss of USD (3,567)), giving
rise to a basic profit per share of 0.014 US cents (2018: basic loss per share
of (0.001) US cents). In financial 2018-19 the Company has not posted
consultancy revenue as in financial 2017-18, owing to termination of its
previous consultancy services agreement. The net result for the year
nonetheless improved by USD 38,472 from the previous year. This improvement
was attributable to lower operational costs during the year under review.

As at 30th June 2019, the Company’s net assets stood at USD 7.03 million
(2018: USD 51.90 million); or US cents 3 per share (2018: US cents 21 per
share). The change in fair value of the Company’s available for sale
financial asset (i.e., Bonyan International Investment Group (Holding) LLC
("Bonyan") in which the Company holds a 21.68 per cent interest) arose mainly
from over-supply and softening demand in the real estate sector in the UAE,
marked by the declines in real property asset prices and values of real
property assets of between 10 and 15 per cent on average during the year under

During the year, the shareholding of Bonyan in its investee company was
reduced to 2.5 per cent (30 June 2018: 19.68 per cent). The reduction in this
holding was attributable to the settlement of a liability between Bonyan and
the Investee Company. Further information on this item is provided in the
Directors’ Report appearing in the Group’s Annual Report.


Trading from 1(st) July 2019 to date remains consistent with the Directors’
expectations at the beginning of the current financial period.


The Directors believe that all the proposals to be considered at the
forthcoming Annual General Meeting, notice of which will be posted to
shareholders with the Annual Report, are in the best interests of the Company
and recommend shareholders to vote in favour of them as they intend, where
relevant, to do in respect of their own beneficial shareholdings.


The restructuring of Bonyan’s investment portfolio should benefit the Group
as the former’s prospects of expansion and its involvement in distinguished
and unique projects in the field of real estate development and various other
areas of investment should increase returns from sustainable sources; these
are expected to improve the Company’s overall value. As the current
financial year progresses, the Directors will remain dedicated to exploring
and seizing opportunities for further business development.

Finally, I would like to extend my wholehearted gratitude to my fellow members
of the Board and to our valued shareholders who continue to place their trust
in us. On behalf of the Board, we pledge to continue doing our best to achieve

Firas Baba,
