AECI Limited - Trading Statement                                                
AECI LIMITED                                                                    
("AECI" or "the Company")                                                       
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)                                  
Registration No. 1924/002590/06                                                 
Share code:  AFE                                                                
ISIN code:  ZAE000000220                                                        
TRADING STATEMENT                                                               
In terms of the revised Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, a listed      
company must publish a trading statement as soon as it is satisfied that a      
reasonable degree of certainty exists that the financial results for the period 
to be reported upon next will differ by at least 20 per cent from that of the   
previous corresponding period.                                                  
AECI expects that for the financial year ended 31 December 2005, headline       
earnings per ordinary share will be between 470 and 490 cents per share (that   
is, 20 to 25 per cent higher than in 2004), and attributable earnings per       
ordinary share will be between 435 and 455 cents per share.  The difference     
between the headline and attributable earnings per share is predominantly due to
a further transitional provision for post-employment medical aid benefits and   
the costs of discontinuance of certain operations.                              
The main reasons for the increase in earnings are improved performance by the   
explosives and specialty fibres businesses, and by property activities, and     
lower financing costs.                                                          
The information in this trading statement has not been reviewed and reported on 
by the auditors of the Company.                                                 
The results for the financial year ended 31 December 2005 will be published on  
21 February 2006.
