Goodman’s warning on rising costs

The real estate major has issued warning that COVID-19 and geopolitical tensions are exerting pressure on supply chains, inflating costs, and escalating execution risks.

The company also said that its assets under management growth over the next few years would be mainly supported by a boost in development activities. These are likely to surpass AU$70 billion by 30 June 2022, according to Goodman Group.

The company also said that there was a huge demand for its properties.

“The execution of our strategy in urban infill markets is reflected in our significant and globally diversified development book, high occupancy of our development completions (99%), consistently high portfolio occupancy (99%) and continued strong average market rental growth,” the company noted.

What does Goodman Group’s management say?

Commenting on the development, Goodman Group’s CEO Greg Goodman said, “Goodman has had another strong quarter with our operating results reflecting the highly targeted location of our portfolio. This has continued to produce high occupancy, cashflows, and development activity.”

“The business environment is changing, with increased interest rates, inflation, geopolitical risks and the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, however, the long-term structural drivers of demand have not changed,” he added.
