TRADING STATEMENT

In terms of the Listings Requirements of JSE Limited, companies
are required to publish a trading statement as soon as they become
reasonably certain that the financial results for the period to be
reported on will differ by more than 20% from that of the previous
corresponding period.

Accordingly, a review of the financial results for the six months
ended 31 December 2017 by management has indicated that:
   - the basic earnings per share (“EPS”) and headline earnings
     per share (“HEPS”) are expected to be between 18.0 cents and
     19.21 cents, reflecting an increase of between 198% and 218%
     compared to the EPS and HEPS of 6.04 cents for the six months
     ended 31 December 2016; and
   - the normalised earnings per share is expected to be between
     18.1 cents and 19.27 cents, reflecting an increase in
     normalised earnings per share of between 198% and 218%
     compared to the normalised earnings per share of 6.06 cents
     for the six months ended 31 December 2016.

Shareholders are reminded that the Aucom business was classified
as a discontinued operation in the prior period. The normalised
earnings per share for continuing operations is expected to be
between 18.1 cents and 19.27 cents, reflecting an increase in
normalised earnings per share of between 119% and 133% compared to
the normalised earnings per share of 8.26 cents for the six months
ended 31 December 2016.
