FURTHER TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2012
Further to the announcement on 30 November 2012, shareholders of Exxaro are advised
that Exxaro and its directors have obtained a reasonable degree of certainty relating to the
expected financial results for the year ended 31 December 2012.
The profit realised on the sale of the mineral sands and Rosh Pinah operations in mid 2012
is expected to result in an increase in attributable earnings when compared with the
corresponding period in 2011. These sales transactions resulted in these operations
effectively contributing to earnings for six and six and a half months, respectively, in 2012
compared to 12 months in 2011, contributing to the decline in expected headline earnings.
Attributable earnings for the year ended 31 December 2012 are expected to be between
R9 193 million and R9 871 million. This equates to attributable earnings per share of
between 2 597 cents and 2 788 cents, representing an increase of between 18% and 27%
when compared with the comparative period in 2011.
Headline earnings per share are expected to be between 1 261 cents and 1 443 cents,
representing a decrease of between 31% and 40% when compared with the corresponding
period in 2011.
The forecast financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been
reviewed, audited nor reported on by Exxaro?s external auditors. This statement is issued in
compliance with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited.
