In compliance with section 3.4(b) of the JSE Listings
Requirements, the following trading statement is provided to the
market regarding the anticipated earnings per share ("EPS") and
headline earnings per share ("HEPS") for the year ended 30 June
The Company is in the process of finalising its results for the
year ended 30 June 2015 and is reasonably certain that it will
report EPS of 36.5 cents per share, an increase of 35.2% in
comparison to EPS of 27.0 cents per share reported in respect
of the year ended 30 June 2014. The Company is reasonably certain
that it will report HEPS of 38.2 cents per share, an increase
of 5.5% in comparison to HEPS of 36.2 cents per share reported
in respect of the year ended 30 June 2014.
Shareholders are advised that the results for the year ended 30
June 2015 will include a restatement of comparative figures in
respect of the year ended 30 June 2014. This will result in
restated HEPS of 29.3 cents per share. EPS will remain unchanged.
The restatement is as a result of the reporting period ended 30
June 2014 where the group accounted for discontinued operations
resulting from the closure of its Resins business.
Following a review of the Annual Report by the JSE through its
Pro-Active Monitoring process and advice the JSE received from
the FRIP and shared with the Company, the Company decided to
restate the transaction and include the discontinued Resins
business as part of continued operations and headline earnings.
In addition, the loss incurred by the group on the accounting
of its loss on associate is now added back in calculating
headline earnings. The effect on headline earnings is reflected
