Where Does The Money Go?

We generate revenue by providing products & building solutions to our customers. From this revenue, we contribute to employees, businesses and governments in many communities, adding to wealth and providing opportunity. Cash which is not reinvested in the business is returned to our shareholders. During the year, we continued to reward our shareholders through share buy-backs and dividends. Total shareholder return for the year was 30%.

Additional monies, not shown here, are reinvested in the business.

This year, we directly invested more than A$2 million in community programs including a major tsunami relief initiative. Whether by giving cash, food, clothing or steel building materials, employees and our businesses across the globe responded quickly and compassionately to help the victims of this disaster.
