Ryman Healthcare: Interview sneak peak

The Ryman Healthcare Ltd [RYM.NZ] Share Investor Q & A is running a little late and will be ready Monday morning. It is quite an extensive interview with Ryman CFO Gordon MacLeod and will cover the usual topics the Share Investor Q & A's do (see links below for additional interviews) with some company specific information.

I originally asked a question about the possibility of Ryman expanding into Australia before the news was made public earlier this week that they were going to do just that and here is an extract from that part of the Q & A just to get to salivating for the full run down on Monday.

SI- How long will the first village be assessed before expanding further?

GM – We will carefully assess the entire Australian experience, from land acquisition to consenting to constructing, sell down and operations. During the initial sell down phase of the first stages we will get a good feel for how we are going. We have strict business case criteria for capital pay back of a village and we will set the same criteria as we do in NZ for whether the opportunity stacks up.

Gordon's answers expand on the NZX release from the company on Tuesday and he gives an insight in the Q & A about expansion into the OZ market and what might make his company successful when so many Kiwi companies have failed there in the past.

So come and read the full interview Monday morning at Share Investor Blog.
