Investor FAQ

How do I invest?

Goodman Group is listed on the ASX, so you can buy stapled securities just like you would buy shares through your adviser, stockbroker or an online broker.

What is the Record Date?

The Record Date is the date on which Goodman Group’s security register is closed to identify the Securityholders and to calculate any entitlement to GMG’s current distribution. All change of address notifications, direct credit instructions, TFN/ABN or exemption notifications must be included on the security register by the close of business on the Record Date to apply for GMG’s current distribution.

What is the difference between a dividend and a distribution?

Dividends are paid to shareholders by companies out of their profits. Distributions are paid to Unitholders by trusts. Distributions are usually made up of income, eg. rental income, and may also include a capital payment to investors, eg. if a property was sold.

When are distributions paid?

Half year distributions (if made) for the periods ending 31 December and 30 June are paid approximately six weeks after the end of the half.

What does listed mean?

An entity is ”listed” when its securities are quoted (or listed) on a stock exchange. The securities of Goodman Group are listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). As these securities are actively traded each day, their value will rise and fall according to market conditions.

What is stapling?

Stapling is a way of economically merging a company and a trust so that they effectively operate as one entity, while retaining the legal structure of both a trust and a company. A Goodman Group stapled security is one fully paid ordinary share in Goodman Limited, one fully paid unit in Goodman Industrial Trust and one CHESS Depository Interest (CDI) in respect of a fully paid ordinary share of Goodman Logistics (HK) Limited which are stapled so that they can only be traded together.

How do I have payments made directly to my bank or building society?

If you would like your distribution payments paid by direct credit into your Australian bank or financial institution account, please complete and sign the Direct Credit Form and forward it by mail to the Security Registrar. Please note the account provided must be in the name of the registered Securityholder.

What does "cum-distribution" mean?

Cum means "with". Securities quoted on a cum-distribution basis means that securities are being traded with the current distribution attached (the price of the securities will usually reflect the amount of the distribution). Securities sold cum-distribution do not entitle the previous owner to receive the last distribution prior to the sale, that is, the purchaser will receive the declared distribution.

When will I receive my annual tax statement?

In August each year, an annual tax statement for the year ended 30 June is mailed to all Securityholders who have held an investment in GMG during that tax year. The annual tax statement summarises the distributions and dividends paid during the year and includes information required to complete your annual tax return.
