Precinct Properties' profit boosted by Fletcher Construction damages payments

Precinct Properties, one of the country's largest property owners, has doubled its profit to $54.3 million for the half year, driven in large part by liquidated damages from Fletcher Construction for delays in the completion of the $700m Commercial Bay development in Auckland.

Precinct said in releasing its result for the six months to December 31, 2019 that it had received $52m in liquidated damages and had recognised $26.7m of that in the half year period with $23.3m credited against the Commercial Bay development cost. Another $2m was recognised in the previous financial year to June 2019.
