The slowing NZ property market may have hit the retirement specialists’ village valuations but revenue rose last year from NZ$114M to NZ$141M.

Sales prices rose by 6%.

Underlying profit before tax rose 4% to $90M.

CEO Glen Sowry says, “Although the housing market in NZ remains soft, occupancy rates at the company’s 24 villages remains high at 97%.”
