POSTED ON 29 Nov 2017
Our shareholders gathered in Perth today for our 2017 Annual General Meeting and heard from Chairman Tony Lennon and Managing Director and CEO Brendan Gore about the performance of Peet last financial year, and how we’re positioned for the year ahead. It was also pleasing to have two Board Members, Vicki Krause and Bob McKinnon, re-elected for another term with overwhelming support from shareholders.
The Peet Group has a diversified land bank across all mainland state and territories, with a pipeline of approximately 52,000 lots worth $13.8 billion. This represents 17 years’ lot supply based on current sales rates.

Operation Legacy Kokoda Challenge – ready for take off
POSTED ON 25 Aug 2017
As the group depart on Monday to take on the gruelling 96km track, hear from Peet Managing Director and CEO, Brendan Gore, on why we’re proud to be supporting some very special Legatees on this incredible journey.
The Peet Group today announced an operating profit and statutory profit after tax of $44.8 million for the year ended 30 June 2017, which represents an increase of 5% compared with last financial year.
Managing Director and CEO, Brendan Gore, said the results were achieved on the back of continuing strong conditions across the Group’s east coast markets.
“The Group has continued to achieve price growth in these key markets and particularly across the Victoria portfolio. There were also signs of improvement in the Queensland portfolio, with increased levels of enquiry and sales,” said Mr Gore.
Supporting the community is in our DNA. Here are just some of the highlights of the wonderful local groups and organisations we have supported through our Community Partnership Program over the past year.
Our commitment to innovation keeps us looking for new ways to deliver exciting lifestyle opportunities for residents in our communities across the country. Peet is excited to have joined forces with ‘experts in fun,’ the Mamma Knows Melbourne team, in an exclusive partnership to guide the design and development of our parks and playgrounds at Cornerstone and Newhaven in the west, and Aston and Aspect in the north.
Operation Legacy Australia Kokoda Challenge 2017 (OP LAKC 17) reached a significant milestone recently, by bringing together Legacy youth from across Australia and their Australian Defence Force (ADF) Mentors for the first time on Exercise POPONDETTA PRELUDE.
Lifestyles are evolving and Peet is creating communities that respond to the changing needs of homebuyers at all stages of life. Not surprisingly, more residents are making the most of the shared spaces – parks and open spaces that are designed as a kind of ‘communal backyard’ with places to get active and also relax with parklands, waterways, walking and cycling trails, BBQs, shelters, and play equipment.
We have a big, bold vision for Flagstone in Queensland where 12,000 homes and a complete city centre will be built over the next three decades and were excited to mark a major milestone on the project last week.

Peet A Gold Partner Of The 2017 UDIA National Congress | Peet Limited
POSTED ON 7 Apr 2017
Peet was pleased to be a gold partner of the 2017 UDIA National Congress which celebrated its 25th anniversary in Perth, welcoming industry leaders from around the country.
Peet’s commitment to innovation has always been a key driver of its success. Today’s affordability pressures; changing demographics and lifestyles; and the need to limit urban sprawl have all contributed to the increased demand for smaller lots and built form options that don’t compromise on space or quality.
Continuing strong conditions across the Peet Group’s east coast markets were reflected in our performance during the first half of the 2017 financial year. The Group recorded an operating profit after tax and statutory profit for 1H17 of $19.8 million – a 7% increase on the previous corresponding period.
Improved margins and earnings were achieved on the back of price growth in both Funds Management and Development projects in the Victorian portfolio; the contribution of new projects across Australia; and Peet’s continuing focus on efficiencies across the business. It’s all made possible thanks to the dedication and commitment of our team and we thank each and every one of you for what you bring to the business.
