UPDATE ON ARROWHEAD PORTFOLIO FOLLOWING UNREST
Shareholders are referred to the Company’s announcement released on SENS on 14 July 2021 and the damage
reported to five of Arrowhead’s properties.
Following on-site visits by Arrowhead staff, professional teams, tenants, and insurance assessors to the
affected properties namely:
- Montclair Mall in eThekwini, KwaZulu Natal (“KZN”);
- Mkuze Shopping Center in Mkuze, KZN;
- Kyalami Industrial Park in Pinetown, KZN;
- Matsulu Shopping Centre in Matsulu, Mpumalanga; and
- Maverick Corner, in Maboneng, Johannesburg CBD,
the damage to these properties has been fully assessed. Arrowhead has identified that two centers have not
fully reopened following the unrest namely Montclair Mall and Mkuze Shopping Center. Montclair Mall is
expected to be fully operational within a period of three to six months and Mkuze Shopping Center within two
months. A phased approach has been adopted at Montclair Mall, which sustained structural damage, with
stores being reopened when it becomes practical to do so. All tenants who were affected and that were able to
resume trading have done so and Arrowhead has not received notification from any of the remaining tenants,
that they will not resume trading once repairs have been completed. Approximately 71% of the gross lettable
area that was affected by the unrest, is occupied by national tenants.
Fortunately, damage to the affected properties was not as extensive as initially thought with the approximate
cost of repairs being R15 million, equating to 0.16% of the Group’s property by value. Loss of rental
attributable to the unrest has been estimated to be R3 million or 0.22% of gross rental. The Group is
comprehensively insured and damage to the relevant properties and loss of rental have been insured against.
Insurance claims have been lodged both with Arrowhead’s insurer and SASRIA. Arrowhead remains
comfortable with its level of insurance and the necessary provisions have been made for repairs which are
proceeding in the interim with the approval of the relevant insurance companies.
Arrowhead is committed to minimising the inconvenience to its tenants and their clients and customers while
ensuring that health and safety remains top of mind.
