    Financial Performance
    CDL Investments New Zealand Limited ("CDLI") is pleased to report a profit
    after tax of $14.7 million for the year ended 31 December 2014, an increase
    of 9.7% from the previous year (2013: $13.4 million).  In 2014, CDLI sold 248
    sections (2013: 202).
    CDLI's profit before tax was $20.5 million (2013: $18.6 million).  Property
    sales & other income was $44.2 million (2013: $38.4 million).  CDLI's
    shareholders' funds as at 31 December 2014 were $128.5 million (2013: $118.9
    million) and the Company's total assets stood at $130.5 million (2013: $120.3
    million).  The net tangible asset per share (at book value) was 46.6 cents
    (2013: 43.3 cents).
    Dividend Announcement
    Reflecting the continued level of profitability, the Company has resolved to
    pay an increased fully imputed ordinary dividend of 2.2 cents per share
    payable on 15 May 2015 (2013: 2.0 cents per share).  The record date will be
    1 May 2015.   The Dividend Reinvestment Plan will apply to this dividend.
    Land portfolio
    At 31 December 2014, the independent value of CDLI's land holdings was $206.0
    million (2013: $177.5 million).
    CDLI acquired a further 4.1 hectares of land in Auckland during the year.
    Summary and Outlook
    The investment in planning and development of sections in the past two years
    continue to benefit the company as the type and location of CDLI's sections
    meet the demand from buoyant market conditions in Auckland, Hamilton, and
    Canterbury. The real estate cycle will see its way through as price
    expectations of land being transacted reach record levels. While the company
    is conscious of the need to acquire new land holdings, it will not speculate
    but keep its feet grounded to sound project analysis and economics. The
    company's focus on developing its land portfolio in Auckland, Christchurch
    and Hamilton is planned to achieve sustainable growth over the next few
    Management and staff
    On behalf of the Board, I thank the Company's management and staff for their
    hard work during 2014 which has contributed to another very good result.
