AECI limited

(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)                                  
Registration No. 1924/002590/06

TRADING STATEMENT                                                               
In terms of the 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 year ending 31 December 2006, headline and            
attributable earnings per ordinary share will be between 810 and 880 cents per  
share (that is, 68 to 83 per cent higher than in 2005).                         
The major reasons for the expected increase in earnings are the disposal of 61  
hectares of industrial land at Milnerton in the Western Cape for R260 million as
reported in the first half year; a strong trading performance by Chemical       
Services; and the previously announced arrangement entered into with the AECI   
Pension Fund which is estimated to add some 200 cents per share to earnings in  
the 2006 financial year.                                                        
The information in this trading statement has not been reviewed and reported on 
by the auditors of the Company.                                                 
The results for the year ending 31 December 2006 will be published on 20        
February 2007.
