The founding chairman of the Board Mr Farai Rwodzi and Mr. Bryan Thorn resigned from the Board atthe end of the financial year. The Board and Management of the Group would like to convey theirutmost appreciation to the gentlemen for their contributions during their tenure and wish them well intheir future endeavours. Subsequent to this Mr. Tendayi Phineas Chimuriwo was appointed chairman.The Board and management of the Group congratulate him on the appointmentIn order to enhance the:ffectiveness of the Board and to replace outgoing Board members, Messrs PhibionGwatidzo, Mark Tunmer, Dave Cooper and James Worsfold were appointed to the Board with effect from10 June 2010.It is acknowledged and accepted that business fortunes follow political fortunes, however the tourism sectoris more susceptible to political sentiments than any other sectors of the economy. The Zimbabwe brand isladen with negative perceptions which stakeholders in the sector have to some extent managed but thepace of political reform has worked against such noble efforts. This has hampered the recovery of thetourism sector as much as the other sectors of the economy. This said the Group made significantrecovery and commences the new financial year on a stronger footing.REVIEW OF OPERATIONSHOTEL PROPERTY PORTFOLIOThe portfolio has shown recovery posting a yield of 2.5% and a rental revenue for the year ofUS$1.3 million, an increase of 364% over last year. The bulk of the improvement can be attributed tothe fact that rentals for the year were in hard currency. In the previous year rentals were in Zimbabwedollars and the fact that they were collected in arrears didnt help. However, business fundamentals alsoshowed signs of improvement. Guest arrivals into the hotels were firmer at about 38% compared to 30%last year. Occupancy in the city hotels, which are more resilient, averaged around 50% whilst our resortproperties closed the year at about 30%. Occupancy levels are expected to maintain an upward trendbefore settling at about 65%. The average daily rate reported a modest gain of about 23% but more canbe achieved on the back of a major refurbishment of the hotels, the responsibility of which lies with thetenant African Sun Limited ("Afrisun"). A refurbished product will translate into both higher room ratesand occupancies.To this end Afrisun has secured offshore funding but now requires security in the form of real estate.Your Board has been called upon to consider providing security and has seen it fit to do so and furtherdetails will be made available to shareholders at the annual general meeting.
At half year stakeholders were informed that rental arrangements were being renegotiated for the thirdtime. Substantial progress has been made in this respect and agreements will be signed soon.Principally, the parties have agreed to migrate from turnover rentals to fixed rentals in line with regionaltrends. A target yield of 10% has been agreed and this is expected to be achieved in year four. Atransition period of three years has been set. During this period rental income will be the higher of 10%of the tenants turnover or the guaranteed rental. The guaranteed rental for the ensuing year has beenagreed at US$2.1 million and it will be reviewed upwards annually for the next two years.PROPERTY CONSULTANCY SEGMENTThe division has re~onded well to the hard-currency operating environment and is currently operatingat above 80% of its capacity. In the short-term it is expected that revenue generation will be maintainedat current levels inferring that the divisions contribution to Group revenue of 56% will thus be dilutedfurther in the ensuing periods. The division is currently exploring opportunities within its sector toenhance its revenue streams.The Group has secured approval to construct a seven storey block of flats along Baines Avenue inHarare. The block will comprise fifty two, two-bedroom flats and four, three-bedroom penthouses. Theproject will be executed during the course of the year. The project will precede the Marlborough twohundred and sixty-four, two-bed flats because of its manageable size and proximity to the centralbusiness district.Marlborough Residential EstateTown planning work on developing the 250 hectare land bank that the Group owns in Marlborough hascommenced. The land bank will be developed into a secured residential estate. Plans are for an up-marketestate that will comprise a private school and at least two club houses among other facilities to makeit a self contained community. Civils work is expected to commence after twenty four months. The projectwill be executed over about ten years and will have a significant impact on the fortunes of the Group.The Group has a near debt free balance sheet wtVch it cannot meaningfully leverage owing to insufficientcash flow generation. Consequently, the Group "as significant tranches of development land lying idle.The Group has thus embarked on a drive to create business units that have the potential to generatestrong cash flows at minimal capital outlay. The resultant cash flows will be used to leverage on thebalance sheet size and access appropriate finance that will be used to execute property developmentprojects.Agri-business unitAs previously reported, the Group entered into a partnership with a seasoned farmer to unlock value outof its idle development land.--------------A-n-n-u-al-R-ep-o-r-t-2-01-0------------•
The Group owns 70% of the operations and the balance is owned by its technical partner. The periodunder review was a set up phase, with close to 60 hectares being put under Hypericum for export andvegetables for the local market. In the financial year under review this unit did not contribute to turnoverbut it is on course to contribute at least US$2 million to turnover for the year ending 31 March 2011.An appropriate site has been identified within our Hwange estate that is suitable for constructing anupmarket safari camp. The project is still at conception and design phase. The Safari business willenable the Group to tilize the vast land it owns in Hwange and increase revenue streams.FINANCIAL REVIEWIncome statementThe Group turnover increased by 255% to US$3.9 million for the period under review. The markedimprovement in turnover is a result of the stabilization of the macroeconomic environment. Operatingexpenses represent 80% of the turnover achieved during the period under review, the ratio comparesfavourably with the 129% achieved during the last fiscal year. The ratio is on the high side as a resultof deal pipeline expenditure incurred that has no corresponding income. The operating costs include thatof the agri-business segment which recorded no revenue for the period under review. The impact of thenew unit will be felt in the ensuing financial year.The major balance sheet item, investment property, was steady at US$69.3 million. While it is acceptedthat all things being equal the value of an asset, hotel properties included, is determined by the quantumof its future cash flows it is also accepted that the economy is going through a transition which rendersa purely academic valuation difficult to motivate and perhaps inappropriate. Consequently, the costbased valuation method was used to assess the reasonableness of market values. Your Board issatisfied that the valuation is a fair representation of the portfolio.The Group looks to the future with optimism and it will seek to accelerate its development pipeline.Concurrent to this a keener focus on cash generation will be emphasised.Let me take this opportunity to thank all the stakeholders for their invaluable support. To the Boardmembers, management and staff your dedication is appreciated and may it continue.T.P. ChimuriwoChairman

Basis for Qualified OpinionThe functional and presentation currency of the Company and the presentation currency of the Groupchanged on 1 February 2009 from the Zimbabwe dollar ("ZW$") to the United States of America dollar("US$"), during the prior year. The Zimbabwe economy was previously recognised as beinghyperinflationary for purposes of financial reporting. To effect the change in functional currency, theGroup and Company were required by International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 21, The Effects ofChanges in Foreign Exchange Rates, to restate their financial statements as at and for the ten monthsended 1 February 2009 in accordance with IAS 29, Financial Reporting in Hyperinflationary Economies,before translating the amounts at the closing exchange rate as at 1 February 2009 and to translate theinflation adjusted com rative financial information at the closing exchange rate as at 31 March 2008.However only those assets and liabilities that could be recovered or settled in a currency other thanZW$ or could be reasonably translated into a currency other than the ZW$ and represented an assetor liability of the Group and Company were recorded as taken on balances. The Group and Companyaccounted for share capital, share premium and debentures by translating the proceeds from issue atthe exchange rate prevailing at the dates of issue. Income and expenses for the ten months ended1 February 2009 were translated into US$ using the average exchange rate prevailing during the periodwithout first restating these numbers as required by IAS 29. It was impractical for us to quantify theeffects of non compliance with IAS 21 and IAS 29 on financial statements as at and for the year ended31 March 2009.As described above share capital, share premium and debentures were not translated in the mannerrequired by IAS 21 and IAS 29. As a result these items may also be misstated in the current year.Potential misclassifications between components of equity may also exist as a result of non-compliancewith IAS 21 and IAS 29 in the previous financial year.Non-preparation of inflation-adjusted financial infonmation as required by IAS 21 and IAS 29, was the basisfor our adverse opinion on the financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 March 2009, dated25 August 2009.Qualified OpinionIn our opinion, except for the effect of the matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinionparagraph, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of theGroup and Company as at 31 March 2010, and of the Groups consolidated financialperformance and its consolidated cash flows for the year then ended in accordance withInternational Financial Reporting Standards and in the manner required by the ZimbabweCompanies Act (Chapter 24:03) and the relevant Statutory Instruments ("SI") SI 33/99 andSI62/96.Emphasis of matterWithout further qualifying our opinion, we draw your attention to note 30, which indicatesthat the Group and Company are operating in an uncertain economic environment.g. ~w tUu l....c-u.!&.oofl-fPricewaterhouseCoopersChartered Accountants (Zimbabwe)Harare 13 August 2010

These policies have been consistently applied to all years presented, unless otherwise stated.2.1 Basis of presentation Statement of compliance The consolidated financial statements of Dawn Properties Limited have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("I FRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standard Board, except for the effects of non-compliance International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 21, The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates and IAS 29, Financial Reporting in Hyper-inflationary Economies in the prior year ended 31 March 2009. The Group reports cash flows from operating activities using the indirect method. The acquisition of investment properties are disclosed as cash flows from investing activities because this appropriately reflects the Groups business activities. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified by the revaluation of investmeflf property and land and buildings. , The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgement in the process of applying the Groups accounting policies. Changes in assumptions may have a significant impact on the financial statements in the period the assumptions change. Management believe that the underlying assumptions are appropriate. The areas involving a higher degree of judgement or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the consolidated financial statements are disclosed in note 4 to the consolidated financial statements.
On the date of change in functional currency on, 1 February 2009, the reserve that was derived fromthe translation of the assets and liabilities that could be recovered or settled in a currency other thanZW$ or could be reasonably translated into a currency other than the ZW$ and represented an assetor liability of the Group and Company, net of the amount that was allocated to share capital andshare premium was included in retained income.(a)The following standards, amendments and interpretations, which became effective in 2009, arerelevant to the Group: Applicable for financial year-. Standardl beginning Interpretation on/after Amendment: Improving disclosures about financial instrumentsA revised version of IAS 1 was issued in S~ptember 2007. The revised standard prohibits thepresentation of items of income and expense (that is, "non-owner changes in equity") in thestatement of changes in equity, requiring non-owner changes in equity to be presentedseparately from owner changes in equity in a statement of comprehensive income. As a result,the Group presents in the consolidated statement of changes in equity all owner changes inequity; all non-owner changes in equity are presented in the consolidated statement ofcomprehensive income. The adoption of this revised standard impacts only on presentationaspects; therefore; it has no impact on profit or earnings per share.
2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)2.1 Sasis of presentation (continued)A revised version was issued in March 2007. Under the revised standard, an entity isrequired to capitalise borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, constructionor production of qualifying asset (one that takes a substantial period of time to get readyfor use or sale) a art of the cost of that asset. The option of immediately expensingthose borrowing costs was removed. The capitalisation is required for qualifying assetsfor which the commencement date for the capitalisation is on or after 1 January 2009.The lASS published amendments to IFRS 7 in March 2009. The amendments requireenhanced disclosures about fair value measurements and liquidity risk. In particular, theamendment requires disclosure of fair value measurements by level of a three-level fairvalue measurement hierarchy. In addition to that, the amendment clarifies that thematurity analysis of liabilities should include issued financial guarantee contracts at themaximum amount of the guarantee in the earliest period in which the guarantee couldbe called; and secondly requires disclosure of remaining maturities of financial derivativesif the contractual maturities are essential for an understanding of the timing of cash flows.The entity has to disclose a maturity analysis of financial assets it holds for managingliquidity risk, if that information is necessary to enable users of its financial statements toevaluate the nature and extent of liquidity risk. The adoption of the amendments resultin additional disclosures but does not have an impact on profit or earnings per share.IFRS 8 replaces IAS 14, "Segment reporting", and is effective for annual periods beginningon or after 1 January 2009. The new standard requires a "management approach" underwhich segment information is presented on a similar basis to that used for internal reportingpurposes. The effects of adoption by the Group are disclosed in note 27 to the consolidatedfinancial statements.IAS 40, "Investment property" amendment (and consequential amendment to IAS 16,"Property, plant and equipment")The amendments are part of lASSs annual improvements project published in May 2008and are effective from 1 January 2009. Property that is under construction or developmentfor future use as investment property is brought within the scope of IAS 40. Where thefair value model is applied, such property is measured at fair value. However, where thefair value of property under construction is not determinable, the property is measuredat cost until the earlier of the date construction is completed and the date at which fairvalue becomes reliably measurable.
IFRIC 15, "Agreements for the construction of real estate" (effective from 1 January 2009)The interpretation clarifies whether IAS 18, "Revenue" or IAS 11, "Construction contracts"should be applied to particular transactions. It is likely to result in IAS 18 being applied to awider range of transactions. The Group expects to apply such sale agreements; however,IFRIC 15 is currently not relevant to the Groups operations, as it has not yet entered intoany sale agreements for property under development.The improvement roject contains numerous amendments to IFRS that the lASS considersnon-urgent but necessary. Improvements to IFRS comprise amendments that result inaccounting changes for presentation, recognition or Improvements to IFRS compriseamendments that result in accounting changes for presentation, recognition or measurementpurposes, as well as terminology or editorial amendments related to a variety of IFRSstandards. Most of the amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after1 January 2009.

Thestandard also specifies the accounting wtlBn control is lost. Any remaining interest in theentity is remeasured to fair value and a gain or loss is recognised in profit or loss.IFRS 3, "Business combinations" (revised 2008; effective for business combinations forwhich the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting periodbeginning on or after 01 July 2009). The revised standard continues to apply theacquisition method to business combinations, with some significant changes. For example,all payments to purchase a business are to be recorded at fair value at the acquisitiondate, with contingent payments classified as debt subsequently re-measured through theincome statement. There is a choice on acquisition-by-acquisition basis to measure the
