In FY16, the focus remained on actively managing the balance sheet to minimise financing costs, whilst maintaining diversity of funding to reduce refinancing risks.

IOF's BBB+ stable credit rating continued to provide opportunities to raise capital for short and long term debt from traditional providers such as banks as well as domestic and offshore bond markets. This diversity of funding creates price tension across lenders and underpins our sector leading, low cost of debt.
