2017-2018
Results to date
              32
Key events so far
 In the last year:
 • Results have held up well so far - with the
     half year surplus £14m above budget.
 • Moody’s has downgraded us from A2
     (negative) to A3 (stable) as a result of the
     changes to the sovereign.
 • Moody’s commented adversely on
     treasury policy breach (maintaining 11
     months’ cover for future uncommitted
     expenditure rather than 18 during merger
     discussions).
 • S&P rating unchanged at A+ (-ve outlook)     33
Sales to date

 As at 31 October, the position was as follows.
 • We had sold 73 shared ownership homes
    at a surplus of £5.4m.
 • We had sold 58 outright sales homes at a
    surplus of £9.9m.
 In general, sales continue well, and we have
 a further 146 shared ownership and 80
 outright sales expected for the remainder of
 this financial year.

 • Board budgeted surplus of £88m for the
   full year
 • Budget surplus lower than last year due to
   fewer sales.
 • Surplus to 30 September - £60.8m

   before mark to market effects
 • 186 staircasing sales - surplus of £13m

Merger with Genesis - Progress

Announced a merger with Genesis Housing in
July 2017.
 Expect to amalgamate the two organisations,
  subject to banking negotiations and
  shareholder approval.
 Genesis’ credit rating is two notches below
  NHHT.
 S&P have said they do not currently expect
  the merger to be credit negative for NHHT.
 Moody’s have said they will not comment
  until early 2018 - shortly before completion.
