Omnia Holdings Limited

JSE code: OMN                                                                   
ISIN: ZAE000005153                                                              
("Omnia" or "the Group")                                                        
TRADING UPDATE                                                                  
Omnia, is a diversified, specialist chemical services company providing         
customised solutions to the chemicals, mining and agriculture markets.          
In line with comments contained in previous announcements, shareholder`s are    
advised that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that the company`s headline
earnings per share and basic earnings per share for the year ended 31 March 2007
is expected to be  between 55% and 65% higher as against the previous           
corresponding period.                                                           
The primary reasons for this increase in headline earnings per share and basic  
earnings per share is as a result of better fertilizer sales volumes in the     
current year as compared to the previous year when plantings had been negatively
impacted by maize surpluses and low prices, combined with an improvement in the 
Protea Chemicals business.                                                      
Omnia remains focused on balancing the Group`s risk profile and pursuing new    
growth opportunities, both nationally and internationally. The ability to       
mitigate the negative impacts seen in the previous year, and ensure growth,     
bodes well for the sustainable delivery of shareholder value into the future.   
It is anticipated that the results for the year ended 31 March 2007 will be     
published on or about 20 June 2007.                                             
The above information has not been reviewed or reported on by the company`s     
auditors.
