 Commencement of thl’s journey to become a Future-Fit Business.

thl today releases its results for the full year ending 30 June 2019.

thl Chairman, Mr Rob Campbell, said, “the Board is not satisfied with the result for FY19, which is down on the prior year. We remain very confident in the future of the business and our competitive position within the market. We have a strong balance sheet and our global growth strategy remains in place.”

“Although it has been a difficult year in the USA, FY19 has also been a record-breaking year for a
number of businesses within thl. It is important to acknowledge the exceptional performance of these businesses – they reflect the hard work of the crew over the last few years.”

Today thl formally launches its journey to become a Future-Fit Business (FFB). Mr Campbell, said, “thl has the responsibility to make further gains in profit in a sustainable manner. It is, therefore, imperative at this time that thl commences its journey to be an FFB.”

CEO, Grant Webster, said “a key highlight for the year was the New Zealand rentals and sales business, which delivered an EBIT of $31.5M, representing 23% growth on the prior year. The Australia and Waitomo businesses also had record EBIT results.”

“The trading conditions and thl performance within the USA market has been the greatest area of
concern in the last 12 months. This market is a key priority for us in the new financial year, and we are well under way with the implementation of our USA review conducted earlier in 2019.”

“We remain very committed to Togo Group – the new branding of our joint venture TH2. The
Roadtrippers business exceeded expectations and is delivering strong subscription revenue growth. The Togo RV product is behind from a development perspective, but we are confident that the opportunity remains substantial.”

An FY19 final dividend of 14 cps, which will be 50% imputed, maintains our full-year dividend in line
with the prior year at 27 cps. The average imputation for this year was 50%, compared to 76% in the prior year.

The integrated report – including the financial statements, as well as a detailed investor presentation are all available on the thl website.
