The guidance allows for A$5M of new rent expense for the properties sold and leased back in 2016. Net interest expense is expected to increase by 5-10% from the 2016 level of A$63M on a Constant Currency basis (excluding future business acquisitions), mainly as a result of higher margins on CHF debt, which in 2016 was drawn from a low margin short term bridge facility. The effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 25%.”
