New Delhi, February 02, 2016: DLF Limited recorded consolidated revenues of Rs 2,981 crore for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, an increase of 49% from Rs 1,997 crore in Q2 FY16. EBIDTA stood at Rs 1,379 crore, compared to 1,071 in the Q2 FY16. Net profit stood at Rs 164 crore, an increase of 25% compared to Rs 131 crore in Q2 FY16. This includes a one-time gain on account of sale of land by DLF Home Developers Limited to 2 Joint venture companies formed with GIC, Singapore's sovereign wealth fund. It also includes revision in construction budgets, primarilydue to fundamental specifications upgrade and reassessment of cost to completion. The non-annualized EPS for the quarter was Rs 0.92. Net Debt stood at Rs 21,396 crore, a reduction of Rs 1,124 crore from the previous quarter.

The Company witnessed continued leasing interest in its commercial propertieswith demand being stable. Since, substantial portion of existing stock has been leased out, the Company has initiated a new development viz. Cyber Park at a prime location on NH-8, adjacent to Cyber City in Gurgaon. The Company has also recently opened up its retail property viz. Mall of India, NOIDA, which in NCR continues to be one of the largest retail destinations.

Residential markets remain soft and outlook is expected to remain lackluster in the medium term. However, DLF 5 continues to evoke interest and clock in healthy sales. The Company remains committed to focus on timely execution and create finished inventory of existing projects or deliver end product to the customer. The company has delivered approximately 10msf in the current fiscal.

DLF Home Developers Limited (DHDL), a wholly owned subsidiary of DLF Limited and GIC, Singapore's sovereign wealth fund, entered into a joint venture to invest in two upcoming projects located in Central Delhi. The entire funds amounting to Rs 1990 crore were received during the quarter.

After the recommendation of the Audit Committee and approval of the Board to sell the CCPS(owned by the Promoters) to unrelated third parties( long term investors/ strategic investors),the Company is geared up to formally offerthe transaction to the market and start discussions with the potential investor universe. The Company believes this transaction can help in creation of two distinct pure plays, one for its Annuity Business and the other for its Development Business. The Company’s long term strategy is to create a Net Debt zero development business enabling it to focus on creation of quality products and timely execution without being perturbed by the randomly oscillating market cycles.

The Company remains focused on meeting all its commitments towards all stakeholders and is grateful for the support of all stakeholders in these tough times.
