Infratil’s guidance

In the recently conducted Annual Meeting, the Company gave an insight into its earnings guidance for the year closed March FY22.

The guidance provided by the Company is given on the basis of the management’s present anticipations and beliefs on its trading performance. However, it is conditional to ambiguities and hazards depending on the market during the period.

The Company has kept the FY22 Proportionate EBITDAF guidance range from continuing operations of NZ$505-NZ$550 million the same as before.

It includes a full-year contribution from the retail business of Trustpower Limited (NZX:TPW), a 10-month contribution coming through Pacific Radiology.

Its business segments like CDC Data Centres, Qscan Group, Retire Australia, and Wellington Airport are going through several operational effects due to the present pandemic condition in Australia.
