1. Based on Keaton?s reviewed results for the period ended 30 September 2013.
2. Based on the assumption that Keaton acquires the entire issued share capital of Xceed, and as a result
Xceed is accounted for as a subsidiary of Keaton. In calculating the pro forma financial effects, it was
assumed that the Specific Issue and the Transaction were implemented on 1 April 2013 for statement of
comprehensive income purposes and on 30 September 2013 for statement of financial position purposes.
Xceed?s statement of comprehensive income for the six months ended 30 June 2013 was converted to
Rand (?R?) from Australian Dollars (?AU$?) using the average exchange rate for the period 1 April 2013 to
30 September 2013 of R9.25 to the AU$, with their audited statement of financial position as at 30 June
2013 converted to R from AU$, using the spot exchange rate as at 30 September 2013 of R9.37. The
statement of comprehensive income and the statement of financial position were adjusted to reflect the
differences in accounting polices between Keaton and Xceed.
3. The EPS and HEPS were adjusted for:
(a) the inclusion of the consolidated earnings of Xceed for the six months ended 30 June 2013,
as well as the adjustments made to reflect the differences in accounting polices between
Keaton and Xceed;
(b) estimated transaction costs of R10,053,756 incurred by Keaton;
(c) provisionally assessed gain on the business combination amounting to R36,315,675 based on
the provisional assessments of fair value;
(d) assumed interest paid on the funding to be provided by Investec Bank Limited (?Investec?)
(?Investec Funding?) of R5,813,117; and
(e) assumed amortisation charge of R105,211 relating to the Investec debt raising fees
4. The NAV and NTAV were adjusted for:
(a) the inclusion of the consolidated assets and liabilities of Xceed as at 30 June 2013 as well as
the adjustments made to reflect the differences in accounting polices between Keaton and
(b) elimination of the subsidiary company share capital of R407,332,640;
(c) issue of the 32,647,838 new Keaton ordinary shares of no par value to Plusbay at R1.7782
per share for a cash consideration of R58,054,386;
(d) estimated transaction costs of R5,026,099 incurred by Keaton that have been capitalised;
(e) elimination of the subsidiary company share-based payment reserve of R402,910;
(f) accounting for R4,302,985 share-based payment reserve;
(g) elimination of the subsidiary company other reserves of R1,517,940;
(h) retained earnings adjusted for:
- elimination of subsidiary company accumulated loss of R188,629,344;
- transaction costs of R10,053,756 incurred by Keaton;
- gain on business combination relating to the acquisition of Xceed of R36,315,675
based on the provisional assessments of fair values.
(i) Investec Funding of R126,254,085 received for the acquisition of Xceed. Debt raising fees of
R1,893,811 were capitalised to the Investec Funding. R28,267,233 was reclassified from
long-term borrowings to short-term borrowings;
(j) cash and cash equivalents have been adjusted for:
- the issue of new Keaton ordinary shares to Plusbay for cash of R58,054,386;
- Investec Funding of R126,254,085 received for the acquisition of Xceed;
- payment of Investec debt raising fee of R1,893,811;
- total transaction costs paid of R15,079,855; and
- payment of the purchase consideration of R184,308,471 for the acquisition of Xceed.
5. Shares in issue and the weighted average number of shares in issue were adjusted for the issue of
32,647,838 new Keaton ordinary shares to Plusbay.
6. All of the above adjustments with the exception of transaction costs are expected to have a continuing effect
