compared to DKK -7.5 million in the same period the year before.
-- In April 2012, a Bill proposing changes to the rules for tax loss
carryforwards was introduced. This Bill was enacted in June 2012. For TK
Development, this has considerably lengthened the time horizon for
utilizing tax losses, and thus significantly increased the uncertainty
relating to utilization of the tax asset. TK Development has calculated
that the changed rules entail a need to impair the Group’s tax asset by DKK
150.0 million. This amount has been recognized in the Interim Report for Q1

-- The Group’s total project portfolio amounted to DKK 3,547 million at 30
April 2012, of which DKK 2,024 million is attributable to projects that
have been completed and thus generate cash flow. The annual net rent from
the current leases amounts to DKK 137 million, equal to a return on cost of

consistently long decision-making processes among financing sources,
tenants and investors alike.
-- The Group will make the startup of major new projects contingent on
obtaining either full or partial financing for them and on freeing up cash
resources from the sale of one or more major completed projects.

number of major completed projects in the 2012/13 financial year. The sale
of major completed projects will generate the cash resources required to
underpin future operations and project flow, and thus long-term earnings.
In light of the volatility of financial markets, the volume, timing and
proceeds of major project sales are subject to uncertainty. Despite this
uncertainty, Management expects to sell a number of projects in the near
future and to generate positive pre-tax results for the 2012/13 financial
