AFROX TRADING UPDATE                                                            
Afrox"s final results for the year ended 30 September 2005 are expected to      
be released on 3 November 2005.                                                 
In compliance with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited and in respect  
of the year ended 30 September 2005, the Group is pleased to advise shareholders
that basic earnings per share are expected to be 226 cents higher than those    
reported for the previous corresponding period.  The major reason for the growth
in basic earnings per share is due to the exceptional surplus that was realised 
from the disposal of the healthcare investment ("the disposal").  The headline  
earnings per share will not be impacted by the exceptional surplus from the     
disposal.                                                                       
Shareholders are advised that the forecast financial information contained in   
this trading update has neither been reviewed nor reported on by the company"s  
external auditors.
