(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that in 2005, Cashbuild implemented a Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment transaction ("the BEE transaction") through the introduction of all of its employees, of whom more than 90% qualified as historically disadvantaged South Africans. The transaction was effected through the establishment of a blind perpetual trust, The Cashbuild Empowerment Trust ("the Trust"), which subscribed for 10% of the issued shares in Cashbuild. The Trust was funded by way of an interest free loan from Cashbuild Management Services (Pty) Ltd ("CMS"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cashbuild. The loan provided by CMS was in the amount of R75 million, and was used to acquire approximately 2.5 million ordinary shares at a price of R29.09 per share. Since the implementation of the BEE transaction, the share price of Cashbuild has increased substantially and accordingly there is a large equity value attributed to the trust. Shareholders are advised that Cashbuild is currently planning to return approximately 45% of the current equity value attributable to the trust, which equates to approximately R50 million to the beneficiaries of the trust. Shareholders are thus advised to exercise caution when dealing in their securities, until a full announcement has been made.

Cashbuild is currently in the process of finalising its results for the half- year ended December 2009. In line with past practice and disclosure, Cashbuild herewith provides its quarterly trading update. Revenue for the company was up by 8% on the second quarter of the prior financial year. Stores opened since 1 July 2008 (new stores - 18 stores) contributed 5% of the increase, whilst existing stores (170 stores) contributed 3%. This, together with the growth reported in quarter one, equates to an increase in revenue for the half year of 9%.



Management is pleased with the trading experienced in all the regions over the traditionally good festive season, except Botswana, which was disappointing. Selling price inflation during this quarter was around 1%. What is still pleasing is the continued excellent growth of 11% in customer transactions of which 6% is of the existing store base.



As reported during the first quarter update, in the current tough trading environment, gross profit margins remain under pressure and are at similar percentage levels as the second half of the previous financial year. Operating expenses are higher mainly due to the increase in staff cost with salary increases becoming effective 1 July 2009. Both of the above consequently had a negative effect on operating margins.

Prospects

Management remain positive regarding trading for the fourth quarter. With the substantial reduction in the price of steel in recent months, the prices of steel related products have decreased accordingly. This being a big portion of Cashbuild's business, as well as the level of stockholding has, and will in the next quarter have a short term negative effect on gross margins as Cashbuild have marked down existing stockholding in line with company strategy of lowest everyday pricing.

Cashbuild is currently in the process of finalising its results for the year ended 30 June 2006. On a sales level, the fourth quarter delivered revenue that was 10% higher than that of the prior comparable period. This increase is on top of one of the highest growths in revenue in the history of Cashbuild (48% increase on the 4th quarter 2004), amounting to a compound growth for the two years of 27% and sales for the full trading year increasing by 22%. New stores contributed 10% to this increase with the remaining 12% from existing stores. Transactions through the tills increased by 12% for the quarter (35%, two year compound: 23%), whilst the number of units sold decreased by 7% (51% increase, two year compound: 25% increase). Gross profit margins remained solid for most of the quarter with some downward pressure being experienced towards the end of the quarter. Due to a number of non-recurring expense items experienced in the earlier part of the financial year, the increase in operating expenses (excluding the effect of new stores) for the quarter was back to inflationary levels, compared to the same quarter of the prior year.

Revenue growth for the third quarter increased by 13% in addition to the 40% growth that was achieved in the corresponding quarter of the prior year, resulting in an overall increase in revenue of 28% for the year to date. Accordingly, the two-year compound growth equates to 26%. The 24 new stores opened since 1 July 2004 contributed 11% to the quarterly increase. Six of the group's 20 divisions were negatively influenced by the abnormal wet weather experienced, whilst two Botswana divisions experienced a decline in revenue of 20% as a result of the poor state of the Botswana economy and lack of government infrastructure spending. However, Cashbuild's three Gauteng divisions and the Namibian division grew by 27% and 50% respectively. Transactions through the tills increased by 21% for the third quarter whilst the number of units sold only increased by 2% over the comparable quarter last year. This is as a direct result of lower brick sales, which sales have been negatively influenced by the wet weather. Percentage margins during the quarter improved by one percentage point on last years corresponding quarter. Cashbuild's expense base increase has slowed down from the 43% experienced in the first half of the 2006 financial year to an increase of approximately 32% in the third quarter, reducing the trend to 39% for the year to date. Management expects this trend to be maintained. Cashbuild's expansion plan continues to be on track, with 2 stores opened during the 3rd quarter as well as one store relocation.



Prospects

Revenue growth for the 3 trading weeks of the 4th quarter has already shown an improvement on the 3rd quarter growth. Furthermore, management remains positive regarding the remainder of the financial year and the full year results.
