Share Investor Q & A: Reader Questions to Ryman CFO Gordon Macleod

I have a Share Investor Q & A coming up from Ecoya Ltd [ECO.NZ] Executive Charmain Geoff Ross next week but this post is related to Ryman Healthcare Ltd [RYM.NZ] in terms of a future Q & A.

Ryman is a company with great past growth rates and a good outlook for further growth far into the future because of the demographics of its customers but mostly operates under the business radar.

We don't know alot about the company apart from its great bottom -line so thought it would be a good idea to put some questions to the company CFO Gordon Macleod and have a poke around the facts and figures behind that great financial posterior.

With that in mind I thought I would like my readers to put some questions to Gordon and Ryman.

Please leave your questions here at the bottom of this post or email me here.

  2. Hi,

    What is your projected yearly growth rate in net profit for the next five years?Also, what would a 10% decrease in residential property prices have on net profit, say over a 1 year period?
    Have you noticed any pick up in competition targeting the retirement village healthcare sector?
    Lastly, do you have a maximum debt to equity figure that directors aim to keep below?


  3. Is your business model one that can be easily defended in the face of competition?

  4. It has been suggested to me that Ryman’s success is built on its being a property company, rather than a healthcare one. If there is a significant element of truth in that assertion, there would be implications.
