TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE SIX-MONTH PERIOD ENDED 30 JUNE 2013
Shareholders are advised that Exxaro will release its reviewed financial results for the six-month period
ended 30 June 2013 on Thursday, 22 August 2013.
A decrease in consolidated net operating profit for the group is expected when compared with the
corresponding period in 2012, mainly due to:
- the non-recurring profits realised during 2012 on the sale of the mineral sands and zinc
operations and other assets of R4 123 million; and
- the shortfall created of R1 918 million in 2013 as a result of the reduced contribution to the overall
group net operating profit from the operations sold in 2012.
The group also recorded a pre-tax impairment loss of R292 million on the carrying value of property,
plant and equipment of the New Clydesdale Colliery (NCC) coal operation in Mpumalanga during the
six-month period ended 30 June 2013. Please refer to a separate SENS announcement made today
(8 August 2013) regarding Exxaro contemplating the cessation of production at NCC.
Attributable earnings for the six-month period ended 30 June 2013 are expected to be between
R1 975 and R2 289 million. This equates to attributable earnings per share of between 556 and
645 cents, representing a decrease of between 74% and 78% when compared with the comparative
period in 2012.
Headline earnings per share are expected to be between 627 cents and 727 cents, representing a
decrease of between 37% and 45% when compared with the comparative period in 2012.
