The Brisbane Markets Limited Board has finalised the financial results of the company for the financial year ended 30 June 2021.
The result reflects the ongoing solid performance of the underlying Brisbane Markets operations during a period of continued interruption and uncertainty, as well as the ongoing positive contribution from the company’s investment in Perth Markets.
