# The Group uses 'underlying profit attributable to shareholders' in its internal financial reporting to distinguish between ongoing business performance and non-trading items, as more fully described in note 8 to the condensed financial statements.  Management considers this to be a key measure which provides additional information to enhance understanding of the Group's underlying business performance.

* At 31st December 2016

 

 

         

The interim dividend of US¢6.00 per share will be payable on 19th October 2017 to shareholders on the

register of members at the close of business on 25th August 2017.

 

 

HONGKONG LAND HOLDINGS LIMITED

HALF-YEARLY RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30TH JUNE 2017

 

OVERVIEW

The Group's investment properties produced an increased contribution due to higher average rents achieved in Hong Kong.  Of the Group's development properties, being residential and mixed-use projects developed for sale in the short to medium-term, higher sales completions led to increased profits in both mainland China and Singapore.

 

PERFORMANCE

During the first half of the year, the Group's underlying profit attributable to shareholders was US$517 million, compared with US$393 million in 2016.  The profit attributable to shareholders was US$3,125 million after accounting for a net gain of US$2,608 million arising on the revaluation of the Group's investment properties.  This compares with a profit of US$1,263 million in 2016, after a net revaluation gain of US$870 million.

 

The net asset value per share at 30th June 2017 was US$14.54, compared to US$13.30 at 31st December 2016.

 

The Directors have declared an unchanged interim dividend of US¢6.00 per share.

 

GROUP REVIEW

Investment Properties

In Hong Kong, office rental reversions were positive as market supply remained tight.  Vacancy in the Group's Central office portfolio at 30th June 2017 was 1.5%, compared with 2.2% at the end of 2016 and 3.1% at 30th June 2016.  The Group's average office rent rose to HK$106 per sq. ft, compared to HK$103 per sq. ft in both the first and second halves of 2016.  The Group's Central retail portfolio was 99.4% occupied, compared to 100% at the end of 2016 and at 30th June 2016.  While base rents were little changed on reversion, the positive reversions seen in 2016 led to the average retail rent increasing to HK$224 per sq. ft, compared with HK$216 per sq. ft and HK$220 per sq. ft in the first and second halves of 2016, respectively.

 

Mildly negative rental reversions continued in the Group's Singapore office portfolio, reflecting the current relative surplus of market supply, with vacancy at the end of June of 0.2% compared with 0.1% at the end of 2016 and 1.0% at 30th June 2016.  The average office rent decreased slightly to S$9.1 per sq. ft, compared with S$9.4 per sq. ft and S$9.2 per sq. ft in the first and second halves of 2016, respectively.

 

In mainland China, the construction and leasing of the Group's luxury retail and hotel complex in Beijing, WF CENTRAL in Wangfujing, is progressing well, with the retail component scheduled to open in late 2017 and the 74-room Mandarin Oriental hotel in 2018.  In Jakarta, the 73,000 sq. m. fifth tower at Jakarta Land, the Group's 50%-owned joint venture, is due to complete in early 2018.  In Cambodia, space in the Group's 26,000 sq. m. prime mixed-use complex is being progressively taken up by tenants.

 

In June 2017, a joint venture agreement was reached to construct and manage a well-located site within the Marina Bay Financial District of Singapore with a developable area of 120,000 sq. m.  The Group will have a 33% interest in the project, which will be connected to its existing portfolio in the district.

 

Development Properties

In mainland China the business benefited from further completions of primarily residential units and positive market sentiment, resulting in both an increase in overall contracted sales and an improved profit contribution.  The attributable interest in contracted sales in mainland China was US$701 million in the first half of 2017, compared to US$432 million and US$673 million in the first and second halves of 2016, respectively.  At 30th June 2017, the Group had US$1,421 million in sold but unrecognised contracted sales, compared with US$1,083 million at the end of 2016.

 

During the period, the Group entered into two new markets in mainland China.  In February 2017, a conditional agreement was reached to develop jointly a mixed-use site in Wuhan, with a developable area of 494,000 sq. m., in which the Group will have a 50% interest.  In April 2017, an agreement was signed to develop jointly a mixed-use site in Nanjing, with a developable area of 217,000 sq. m., in which the Group will have a 33% interest.  Both projects will be developed over multiple phases through to 2021.

 

Results from the Group's residential development activities in Singapore reflected the recognition of profit on the 699-unit LakeVille project, which was completed during the first half of the year, while there were no completions in the first half of 2016.  Pre-sales continued at the Sol Acres and Lake Grande projects with satisfactory results.  In May 2017, the Group won a tender for a residential site with a developable area of 98,000 sq. m., which is expected to complete in 2021.

 

Of the Group's other properties, three joint venture residential projects in Indonesia are advancing on schedule.  In the Philippines, satisfactory progress is being made in the construction of a 40%-owned 182-unit luxury apartment block in Manila and a 40%-owned mixed-use development in Cebu.  In Thailand, the Group entered into a 49%-held joint venture to develop a residential site, with a developable area of 38,000 sq. m.  Construction is expected to commence in early 2018 and will complete in 2020.

 

Financing

The Group's financial position remains strong with net debt of US$1.9 billion at 30th June 2017, down from US$2.0 billion at the end of 2016.  Net gearing was 5%, compared with 6% at the end of the year.

 

OUTLOOK

The good performance of the Group's investment property portfolio is expected to continue in the second half of the year, although the contribution from development properties will not benefit from further sales completions in Singapore.

Fair value estimation

(i) Financial instruments that are measured at fair value

    For financial instruments that are measured at fair value in the balance sheet, the corresponding fair value measurements are disclosed by level of the following fair value measurement hierarchy:

 

(a)  Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities ('quoted prices in active markets')

The fair value of listed securities, which are classified as available-for-sale, is based on quoted prices in active markets at the balance sheet date.  The quoted market price used for listed investments held by the Group is the current bid price.

 

(b)  Inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly ('observable current market transactions')

The fair values of derivative financial instruments are determined using rates quoted by the Group's bankers at the balance sheet date.  The rates for interest rate swaps and forward foreign exchange contracts are calculated by reference to market interest rates and foreign exchange rates.

 

There were no changes in valuation techniques during the six months ended 30th June 2017 and the year ended 31st December 2016.

 

The table below analyses financial instruments carried at fair value at 30th June 2017 and 31st December 2016, by the levels in the fair value measurement hierarchy:

There were no transfers among the two categories during the six months ended 30th June 2017 and the year ended 31st December 2016.

 

 

(ii)   Financial instruments that are not measured at fair value

The fair values of current debtors, bank balances, current creditors and current borrowings are assumed to approximate their carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities.

 

The fair values of long-term borrowings are based on market prices or are estimated using the expected future payments discounted at market interest rates.

 

 

13. CAPITAL COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES

 

Total capital commitments at 30th June 2017 and 31st December 2016 amounted to US$819.2 million and US$623.0 million, respectively.

 

Various Group companies are involved in litigation arising in the ordinary course of their respective businesses.  Having reviewed outstanding claims and taking into account legal advice received, the Directors are of the opinion that adequate provisions have been made in the condensed financial statements.

 

 

14. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

The parent company of the Group is Jardine Strategic Holdings Limited and the ultimate holding company is Jardine Matheson Holdings Limited ('JMH').  Both companies are incorporated in Bermuda.

 

In the normal course of business, the Group has entered into a variety of transactions with the subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures of JMH ('Jardine Matheson group members').  The more significant of these transactions are described below:

 

Management fee 

The management fee payable by the Group, under an agreement entered into in 1995, to Jardine Matheson Limited ('JML') in 2017 was US$2.6 million (2016: US$2.0 million), being 0.5% per annum of the Group's underlying profit in consideration for management consultancy services provided by JML, a wholly-owned subsidiary of JMH.

 

Property and other services
