NET ASSET VALUE PER SHARE

Duxton Water’s NAV at 31 December 2019 was $1.76 per share.

The after tax NAV figure takes into account the provision for deferred tax on set-up costs and estimates of net tax provisions that may arise should the entire portfolio be disposed of on the above date. The Company does not expect to trigger these tax provisions through the turnover of these assets and expects to maintain its low entitlement turnover ratio. The NAV excluding tax provisions for unrealised capital gain is $2.00. NAV is calculated based on an independent monthly portfolio valuation performed by Aither Pty Ltd (“Aither”).

INVESTMENT UPDATE

At 31 December 2019, Duxton Water Ltd is invested in approximately ~$334.56 million of water assets with the remainder of the portfolio held in cash and net current assets. The Company has approximately 522ML ($3.1 million) of water entitlements in its acquisition pipeline at 31 December 2019.

12 November 2019 - Monthly Update - October 2019

Duxton Water’s NAV at 31 October 2019 was $1.72 per share.

The after tax NAV figure takes into account the provision for deferred tax on set-up costs and estimates of net tax provisions that may arise should the entire portfolio be disposed of on the above date. The Company does not expect to trigger these tax provisions through the turnover of these assets and expects to maintain its low entitlement turnover ratio. The NAV excluding tax provisions for unrealised capital gain is $1.95. NAV is calculated based on an independent monthly portfolio valuation performed by Aither Pty Ltd (“Aither”).

INVESTMENT UPDATE

At 31 October 2019, Duxton Water Ltd is invested in approximately ~$321.3 million of water assets with the remainder of the portfolio held in cash and net current assets. The Company has approximately 2,032ML ($10.6 million) of water entitlements in its acquisition pipeline at 31 October 2019.

The uplift in the value of the Company’s water assets portfolio is reflective of market pricing flowing through to the independent valuation of the portfolio and a number of strategic entitlement acquisitions through October. Irrigators collectively own the vast majority of entitlements on issue across the SMDB and as such continue to be the greatest beneficiaries of increases seen in water entitlement values.

The Company funded these strategic acquisitions through an extension to its secure loan facility with NAB.
