DJ St Mark Homes Plc Half-year Report

6 September 2017 
                               St Mark Homes Plc 
                          ("SMH" or "the Company") 
     Unaudited Interim Report for the six month period ended 30 June 2017 
Review of operations for the six month period ended 30 June 2017 
The Directors are pleased to announce the interim results for six months ended 
30 June 2017. The company continues to trade profitably as a residential and 
mixed use property developer. 
The Directors are pleased to report a pre-tax profit of GBP210,976 (2016 - GBP 
315,493) for the period. 
The Company paid an interim Ordinary share dividend of 5.5p per share on 14 
July 2017 (2016 - 5.0p). This dividend was not accrued in the accounts at 30 
June 2017. This represents a 10% growth in dividend over the corresponding 
period last year. The net assets per share stands at 136 pence (2016 - 137p) at 
the end of this interim reporting period. 
The Company is also pleased to announce plans to initially raise up to GBP2m 
through the issue of 2 1?2 year corporate bonds through the Crowdstacker 
platform in the coming months. The bonds will carry an annual coupon of 6% and 
will be ISA eligible. The Directors believe that this additional capital will 
enable the Company to make a number of new project investments and should lead 
to a stronger and more profitable business going forward. 
A summary of the progress on our current projects is set out below: 
Sutton High Street, Sutton 
The Company has invested in a regeneration property development venture at 
Sutton High Street.   Phase I of the development project (consisting of 41 
residential units over ground floor retail space) was completed in October 
2016).   All residential units have been sold on this first phase.   The 
Company retains an interest in the commercial space and is in advanced 
negotiations with a high street retailer on the letting of this space.   The 
Company also retains an interest in the commercial space and the neighbouring 
derelict old Prince Regent public house site.   Following an extensive 
consultation with the local authority our development partner   intends to make 
a detailed planning application to redevelop the derelict public house site to 
provide a new build development of 35 residential units over ground floor 
commercial / retail space in late September 2017. 
Gwynne Road, London, SW11 
St Mark has taken a 40% joint venture interest in the redevelopment of the site 
at 55- 66 Gwynne Road.   Construction of this mixed-use scheme (33 residential 
flats over ground and first floor commercial/retail space) is now well underway 
and is forecast to be completed toward the end 2018.  The Company is delighted 
to report that contracts have been exchanged 11 of the 33 residential units 
(representing the affordable / social housing element of the scheme). Given the 
relatively early stage of construction we have not recognised our profit share 
on this exchanged element at this time. 
London Road, Hounslow, TW3 
St Mark has taken a joint venture interest of up to 40% in this development of 
34 all private flats in Hounslow, West London. Construction is well underway 
and is forecast to be completed in May / June 2018. Marketing of the scheme is 
scheduled to start in earnest in Autumn 2017.
