Notes:
  1. In November 2011, the Board of Directors approved the change of the Group's financial year end date from June 30 to December 31 in order to align with that of its subsidiaries in mainland China.

  2. To facilitate better understanding of the Group's operational results, the underlying net profit and underlying earnings per share are presented by excluding the effect of changes in fair value of investment properties and investment properties under development and their related deferred tax and non-controlling interests.

  3. Net debt represents bank loans and other borrowings, floating rate notes and finance lease obligations, less cash and deposits with banks. Equity comprises shareholders’ equity and non-controlling interests.

  4.
