Mirvac’s urban strategy delivered excellent results in FY17, with operating earnings up 11 per cent and distributions up 5 per cent, at the top end of guidance provided.
The 2017 financial year was an outstanding year for Mirvac, and our ambition to reimagine urban life by creating, owning and managing high-quality assets in Australia’s largest cities has delivered strong results across the Group, positioning us well for the future.
Mirvac is an integrated, urban property group and a key contributor to Australia’s major cities.
Mirvac’s urban strategy and a strong focus on capital management delivered growth in FY17, and has ensured the Group is well placed for the year ahead.
In February this year, we launched Marrick & Co in Sydney’s inner west: a 220-apartment development on the old Marrickville Hospital site.
Mirvac has a priority focus on the health and safety of its employees, contractors and customers, and in FY17, we launched a refreshed policy and focus to strengthen our safety practices, behaviours and culture across our business, while supporting the wellbeing of our people, places and the communities in which we operate.
Developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been one of Mirvac’s key cultural goals over the past 12 months.
This Changes Everything is Mirvac’s sustainability strategy, comprised of four focus areas with long-term missions.
This Changes Everything FY17 at a glance
Deploying capital with discipline
and delivering on our promises,
with a strong focus on our customers.
Maintaining an appropriate balance of passive and active invested capital through cycles, and retaining capability across the office and industrial, retail and residential sectors.
Leveraging our integrated model
to create, own and manage
quality Australian assets.
We will continue to focus on urban markets, with an overweight preference to Sydney and Melbourne and clearly defined mandates for each sector of the business. Our deep understanding of our customers will ensure we remain experts in the markets in which we operate.
The property cycle drives our decision making, and our diversified structure and integrated model means we can adapt and change with the cycle. We have different priorities at different points in the cycle, which allows us to flex our activities and risk profile.
We will look to acquire property where we believe we have an opportunity to unlock value, through asset management, development, repositioning or rezoning. Our key point of difference is our unique capability to generate value by creating high-quality, investment-grade assets, as well as applying our expertise in managing the assets that we own.
We manage our balance sheet capital according to the property cycle, and are focused on leveraging third party capital to grow our business and maximise the value of our integrated model. We maintain an appropriate and variable cost structure to enable us to remain agile in changing market conditions.
