Our thoughts
Our thoughts

  • We firmly believe we own some of Australia’s best listed growth stocks

  • We are confident that the executives of our companies will make the right “macro” decisions

  • We believe it important to focus on our companies’ achievements rather than on the mood of the market

  • Our best “value-add” is our extensive company visit schedule and networks

Our thoughts1
Our thoughts

  • The two main components of our investments success are the stock selection and portfolio composition

  • The PIE regime will be beneficial as we can more actively manage portfolio composition

  • Our stock selection processes have not and will not change

  • We continue to see plenty of interesting opportunities

Portfolio Investment Entity Regime

  • What is it?

    • Legislation, commencing 1 October 2007, changes the way managed funds (including Listed Investment Companies) are taxed

    • Removes tax disadvantages to those investing in managed funds and leaves the investor in the same (or better) position whether they invest in equities directly or via a managed fund

Portfolio Investment Entity Regime

  • Key Benefits to Barramundi:

    • Barramundi no longer taxed on capital gains on sale of investments held on revenue account (previously held by Barra Nursery Limited)

    • Distributions to shareholders will be excluded from their income tax returns

    • As a PIE, there will no longer be a restriction on the distribution of capital gains to shareholders

    • The ability to simplify the legal and reporting structure of the Group (through amalgamation) which will result in lower costs

Foreign Investment Fund Regime

  • Certain Australian equities will attract tax on a flat 5% of opening market values (primarily those stocks not listed on the ASX/S&P All Ordinaries Index – top 500 listed stocks)

  • Dividends and any capital gains on these stocks will no longer be taxable

  • Where gains on these stocks are > 5%, the fixed tax payable will represent a tax saving

  • Where gains are <5%, the fixed tax payable will represent additional tax

  • At 31 August 2007 Barramundi had 16% of the portfolio invested in ‘caught’ Australian equities
