Foresight Sustainable Forestry is targeting an NAV total return of more than inflation (CPI) + 5% per year on a rolling five year basis (once the company is substantially invested).
It is intended that the returns will be created by: the capital appreciation of the underlying asset freeholds – timber asset value increases as well as value creation as afforestation assets (newly planted forests) successfully pass through project development milestones; cash yield, which is generated by the sale of timber from the harvesting of mature forest compartments; the value of carbon credits; and, on a more ancillary basis, opportunistic leases to renewable energy developers and ecotourism.
