Distribution Policy

NetLink NBN Trust's distribution policy is to distribute 100% of its cash available for distribution ("CAFD").

Distributions by the Trust will be made on a semi-annual basis, with the amount calculated as at 31 March and 30 September, each year for the 6-month period ending on each of the said dates.

The Trustee-Manager will pay the distributions no later than 90 days after the end of each distribution period. The Trust's first distribution, for the period from the Listing Date to 31 March 2018, was paid as a distribution in cash to the Trust's unitholders ("Unitholders") on 8 June 2018.


Any proposed distributions by the Trust will be paid from CAFD and available cash as determined by the Trustee-Manager. CAFD is a non-SFRS financial measure and represents cash flows from distributions received by the Trust from NetLink Trust ("NLT"), principal and interest payments (net of applicable taxes and expenses) received by the Trust from NLT pursuant to the NLT Notes1, and any other cash received by the Trust from NLT, after such cash flows have been applied to:
