BKW records a solid result

BKW generated $584m in revenue (up 13%), $569m in EBIT (up 26%) and a $410m underlying NPAT (up 24%). It paid a dividend of 23c per share, yielding 1.9% on an annualised basis and thereby keeping the streak alive. 

Ironically, this was not achieved merely through the company’s core brick-making operatings. 

 

Property helps

Brickworks has a strategic stake in Washington Soul Pattinson (ASX:SOL) and also interests in industrial property. A $301m sale of Oakdale East into the Industrial Joint Venture Trust delivered earnings of $263m and boosted the Net Asset Value of Property Trusts to $2.2bn. 

Turning to Building Products, North American EBITDA was up 16% to $14m but down 6% to $50m in Australia. The company blamed a backlog of work from government stimulus, labour market tightness and supply chain issues.
