This is the six monthly report of the Directors of Tauranga City Aquatics Limited (TCAL) for
the first half of the financial year ending June 2009.

The principal purpose of the TCAL is to ensure we deliver on our Statement of Intent
performance measures to Council and the community. One of the key performance
measures is the management contract with LeisureCo (LCNZ). The Board constantly
monitor this to ensure efficient and effective performance of that contract.

There were no significant contractual events that were dealt by the Directors during the last
six months.

There are many other important deliverables under the Statement of Intent and we have
been working hard during the past six months to progress these as well. One of our key
strategic projects is the redevelopment of the Hot Pools. TCAL have now presented Council
with a financially sustainable proposal that will not only enhance the aquatics network, but
also Tauranga as a regional tourist attraction. We are pleased that this proposal is now
included in Council’s draft Ten Year Plan for further consultation.


The facilities were used by 518,643 (474,125 YTD 2007) patrons during the six months, an
increase of 9.6% over the same period in the previous year. Once again this is an
outstanding result. Together with LCNZ, we have a goal of 1,000,000 user visits for the 12
month period to 30 June 2009 and are on target to achieve this.

Financial Result

The unaudited results for the half year-ended 31st December 2008 disclose a net deficit for
the six months of $448,000 (surplus $95,000 YTD 2007). The deficit is in accord with the
expectations of the Directors for the six months. The second six months sees an increase in
the contract fees received from LCNZ. The operating grant from Council will be on budget at
year end and we are on target to achieving the budgeted year end surplus of $164,000,
before depreciation expense. Depreciation is budgeted and funded within Council.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Tauranga City Council for their continued
