(?Wild Rose?) in terms of which Wild Rose proposed selling one or more of its portfolio investments to the company in consideration for the issue to Wild Rose of eXtract shares. Shareholders are advised that negotiations have been terminated and accordingly caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in the company?s securities.



As noted in the announcement regarding the restructure and debt repayment released on SENS on 9 February 2018, excellent progress has been made on eXtract?s approved strategy to exit contract mining, monetise its excess mining assets and repay its debt. The board continues to engage with shareholders on the strategic options for the company going forward. However, following the unbundling by enX Group Ltd.

A significant number of these shareholders have indicated a preference for any surplus cash to be returned to shareholders. This has resulted in a need for eXtract to revisit its stated strategy to co-invest in the Last Mile Fund and also to continue to reduce the remaining overhead costs.



A special board meeting will be held soon after the annual general meeting, scheduled for 21 February 2018, to consider this new strategic direction for the company. A further announcement in this regard will be released on SENS in due course.

The contract value for Eqstra Botswana is approximately R500 million per annum of revenue and contributed R8.5 million profit after taxation per annum.



eXtract?s Botswana operations are ring-fenced to the local entity and will not affect eXtract?s plans in bringing efficiencies to its balance sheet and operating model.

Eqstra shareholders are referred to the announcements released on the Stock Exchange News Service on 3 February 2016 and 15 March 2016, advising shareholders that the Company has entered into negotiations which, if successfully concluded, may have a material effect on the price of the Company?s securities. The negotiations are ongoing and accordingly, shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution when dealing in Eqstra securities, until a further announcement is made.

26-Apr-2016
(Official Notice)
Eqstra, the guarantor of Eqstra?s Domestic Medium Term Note Programme wishes to notify all holders of securities that Standard and Poor?s (?S-P?) has, on 26th April 2016, downgraded Eqstra?s long-term South African national scale issuer rating to zaB/zaB from zaBBB+/zaA-2.



Eqstra management notes that whilst the timing of the review was anticipated, it was executed at a time when management is implementing actions outlined to the market over the past 12 months, including during the presentation of the Eqstra interim results on 1 March 2016 which can be found at http://www.eqstra.co.za/inv_interim_results.php.



These actions are central to Eqstra?s strategy and operations and involve a number of interdependent components that require, inter alia, agreement with third parties. In particular, the process for disposing of excess assets has been underway for some months and the engagement with financial institutions with respect to the bank refinancing is well advanced. Management continues to pursue these initiatives with vigour.



In addition, S-P?s report makes it clear that it has given no consideration to the anticipated proceeds of the aforementioned asset disposals. Management believes that the proceeds from the sale of excess assets, in conjunction with the debt refinancing, will contribute to the improvement of the company?s funding profile. The full report can be found by its subscribers at www.standardandpoors.com



Further, S-P also acknowledges that Eqstra is in a transitional period and that conclusion of a number of activities would have an effect on the company?s rating and prospects.



The company notes the cautionary announcements made on the 3rd February, 15th March and 8th April 2016 relating to disposal of assets and a non-binding expression of interest. These announcements are still in force and under review, however are unrelated to the rerating of the company. In the opinion of the directors, the rating downgrade has no impact on the financial and trading position of the company, and further that the refinancing of certain bank debt communicated to shareholders on 1 March 2016 is progressing. Management will continue to keep investors apprised of developments.

Operating profit rose to R436 million (2014: R407 million), loss for the period from continuing operations came in at R440 million (2014: profit of R75 million), while headline earnings per share from continuing operations was higher at 22.2 cents per share (2014: 18.8 cents per share).



Dividend

The board agreed to withhold dividend payments to preserve cash as well as to strengthen the balance sheet and to consider resuming dividend payments only once the targeted leverage ratio has been achieved.



Prospects

Group continues to focus on cash management and quality of earnings in terms of the 2020 strategy. Industrial Equipment anticipates that the solid performance in the forklift businesses will continue in South Africa and the United Kingdom. A healthy order book for long-term rental and cash sales is in place to support annuity revenue growth. Fleet Management and Logistics earnings remain robust. We continue to drive value-add products with measured expansion on leasing activities. Contract Mining and Plant Rental continues to reduce the exposure to contract mining so that it does not exceed 30% of the group's revenue-generating assets, focussing on efficiencies and contract management.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on the Stock Exchange News Service on 24 February 2016, entitled ?Updated trading statement and notification of interim results presentation? in which Eqstra reported an anticipated decrease in earnings.



The board of Eqstra wishes to clarify the statement in the announcement regarding the ?the closure of the Benga operations in Mozambique?. Shareholders are advised that the company?s proposed disposal of the Benga assets is ongoing. Once the final terms and conditions are agreed, a further announcement will be made, containing full details of the terms of proposed disposal. A circular will also be issued to Eqstra shareholders, incorporating a Notice of General Meeting containing the necessary resolutions to be approved by shareholders in order to implement the proposed disposal. On the basis that the Benga operations ended on 31 December 2015, the results of these operations will be disclosed in the group?s financial results for the six months ended 31 December 2015 as discontinued operations. An impairment of R438 million has been raised to reduce this related asset valuation to an asset held for sale value.



In addition, as part of continuing operations, the group also impaired other excess mining equipment to the value of R736 million. These actions are aligned to group strategy to reduce exposure to the mining sector, exit non-core operations and improve liquidity.



These actions take group revenue-generating asset exposure of Contract Mining and Plant Rental from 43% (30 June 2015) to a level of 28% (31 December 2015) as per the board?s commitment to shareholders.



The board believes these impairments are necessary for Eqstra ultimately to deliver optimal value to stakeholders.

The Benga Coal Mining Contract (?Contract?) that operated in Mozambique for the past five years as part of Eqstra Mozambique Limitada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eqstra, concluded on 31 December 2015.



Eqstra shareholders are advised that Eqstra Mozambique Limitada has signed a memorandum of intent with Minas de Benga Limitada (?the client?), for the disposal of all plant and equipment assets (?the proposed sale assets?) used in the provision of mining services under the terms of the Contract to the client.



The intention to enter into these negotiations was previously discussed at the September 2015 annual results presentation of Eqstra. The proposed sale of the assets is in line with Eqstra?s stated strategy to reduce its exposure to the mining industry. The proceeds of the proposed sale assets would enhance the Group?s cash liquidity position.



The proposed sale of assets in terms of this Contract is material to Eqstra and, if successfully concluded, the proposed sale will constitute a Category 1 transaction for the Company in terms of the JSE L Listing Requirements, requiring, inter alia, Eqstra shareholder approval. Upon signature of the proposed sale agreement a further detailed announcement will be published.



Shareholders are therefore advised to exercise caution when dealing in Eqstra securities until a further announcement is made.

(C)
Revenue for the year lowered to R9.463 billion (2014: R9.978 billion). Operating profit was higher at R1.037 billion (2014: R938 million), profit for the year attributable to owners of the parent increased to R243 million (2014: R240 million), while headline earnings per share grew to 78.7 cents per share (2014: 76.7 cents per share).



Dividend

The board decided not to declare a dividend in order to preserve cash and increase the capital adequacy ratio of the group in line with group's future strategy to restructure the balance sheet. The board considered the solvency and liquidity of the company and is satisfied that the company will remain solvent and liquid.



Looking forward

We are confident that our new 2020 strategy of restructuring the balance sheet, to become less capital intensive and more services orientated, will rebase our platform for growth. In addition, through improved operational efficiencies and complimentary diversification, Eqstra will be positioned to sustainably support our purpose of "moving value globally, through powerful partnerships and creative solutions", enhancing shareholder returns. Industrial Equipment anticipates the forklift market in SA to remain challenging this next year while the UK market is expected to increase marginally. We are in the process of expanding our footprint further through acquisitions in the forklift business in the UK. The distribution of the Terex Trucks distribution agreement was terminated by mutual agreement. We have secured the distribution rights for Link-Belt mobile cranes, launching September 2015. Looking ahead the division will continue to diversify further into complimentary distributorships both in SA and the UK.



Fleet Management and Logistics division will continue to drive annuity based non-capital intensive services with funding requirements for leasing being underwritten by partnering with financial institutions.



Contract Mining and Plant Rental anticipates global commodity prices to remain under pressure. The three-year SAFCEC wage agreements concluded set stability around increases in the short term. Globally, mining capital expenditure has decreased with mining houses demanding alternative solutions, allowing us opportunities to redeploy excess assets through the leasing or rental of mobile capital equipment. We are and remain committed to working closely with our clients to improve the sustainability of projects.

Withdrawal of cautionary announcement

Eqstra shareholders are referred to the cautionary announcements released on the Stock Exchange News Service on 27 February, 14 April and 28 May 2015, and are advised that the negotiations referred to therein have been adjourned.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the Eqstra unbundling circular / pre-listing statement dated 20 March 2008 and to various SENS announcements issued by both the Company and by Imperial Holdings Limited, including that dated 30 September 2010, wherein the issue of equity shares to Lereko Mobility Pty Ltd (Lereko) in terms of a Black Economic Empowerment (?BEE?) transaction, were detailed (Lereko BEE transaction). The terms of the Lereko BEE transaction, including the possible repurchase of its ordinary shares by Eqstra, were approved by shareholders on 14 March 2008. In terms of the Lereko BEE transaction, Eqstra was granted a call option, in terms of which it has the right to repurchase a formula-determined number of Eqstra shares from Lereko at their original subscription price of 0.1 cent each (the repurchase right).



Shareholders are advised that, in terms of the repurchase right, Eqstra has today repurchased 5 864 944 Eqstra ordinary shares (representing 1.426% of the Company?s current issued ordinary share capital) held by Lereko (?the Eqstra repurchased shares). The Eqstra repurchased shares will be delivered to the Company on 15 June 2015 and application will be made for their delisting and cancellation, with effect from 15 June 2015. Given that the Eqstra repurchased shares will be cancelled and returned to authorised, unissed share capital, Eqstra?s exercise of its repurchase right has no effect on the number of treasury shares held prior to the repurchase. Likewise, Eqstra?s exercise of the repurchase right will have no material impact on the Group?s financial position, profit or loss and cash flow statements.

02-Jun-2015
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that, after seven years as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Walter Hill has given notice to the board of his retirement, with effect from 1 June 2015. The board and executive wish to express their gratitude to Walter for his longstanding service and commitment to the Company. Walter believes it to be an appropriate time to hand over to new leadership and thus the board has appointed the current Chief Financial Officer, Mr Jannie Serfontein, as interim Group CEO, with effect from 1 June 2015.



At its next meeting in August 2015, the Board will confirm an appointment to fill the position permanently.

28-May-2015
(Official Notice)
Eqstra shareholders are referred to the announcements released on the Stock Exchange News Service on 27 February 2015 and 14 April 2015, advising shareholders that the Company has entered into negotiations which, if successfully concluded, may have a material effect on the price of the Company?s securities.



Accordingly, shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution when dealing in Eqstra securities, until a further announcement is made.
21-Apr-2015
(Official Notice)
On 20 April 2015, Standard - Poor?s Ratings Services (S-P?s) re-affirmed the long-term South Africa national scale rating of Eqstra as zaBBB+.



S-P said the rationale for the rating was as follows:

* "Eqstra Holdings Ltd.'s financial performance continues to be resilient despite operating in a challenging domestic economic environment.

* S-P is therefore affirming its 'zaBBB+/zaA-2' long- and short-term South Africa national scale ratings on Eqstra.

* S-P thinks that Eqstra's good business diversification and market position, plus its prudently managed capital expenditure and cost growth, will support earnings resilience and build capital and liquidity buffers over the next 12 months."

Eqstra shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 27 February 2015, advising shareholders that the Company has entered into discussions which, if successfully concluded, may have a material effect on the price of the Company?s securities. Accordingly, shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution when dealing in Eqstra securities, until a further announcement is made.

03-Mar-2015
(C)
Revenue for the interim period decreased to R4.7 billion (R5 billion). Operating profit increased to R503 million (R461 million). Profit attributable to owners of the parent rose to R147 million (R138 million). In addition, headline earnings per share grew to 36.9cps (34.9cps).



Dividend

The board agreed to withhold dividend payments to preserve cash as well as strengthen the balance sheet and only consider resuming dividend payments once the target capital adequacy ratio have been achieved, the debt capital market and company liquidity are normalised.



Prospects

Industrial Equipment anticipates the solid performance to continue with both the South African forklift market and the United Kingdom market increasing marginally. Our aim to further balance the product portfolio and grow into sub-Sahara Africa and the United Kingdom, with a much stronger basket of products in place. A healthy order book for long-term rental and cash sales is in place to support annuity revenue growth. Fleet Management and Logistics earnings from leasing activities are set to remain defensive however the ongoing low interest rates will continue to have a negative impact on earnings. We aim to drive value add products with measured expansion on leasing activities.



Contract Mining and Plant Rental remains an important part of the asset mix of the group. The re-positioning of the division has already starting to show early signs of recovery under new management. The exit of underperforming contracts and improvement of asset utilisation positions the division adequately through the commodity cycle. Management continues to reduce the exposure to contract mining not exceeding 30% of the group's revenue-generating assets. We continue to actively participate in the South Africa render activities, but redeploying surplus assets could however be challenging.

(Official Notice)
The board takes cognisance of the substantial decline in the Eqstra?s share price and believes that the price is not a true reflection of the group?s financial performance .



The board is satisfied that both the Industrial Equipment and Fleet Management and Logistics divisions are performing as expected and management anticipates performance to be in line with the previous comparative period.



The Contract Mining and Plant Rental division is going through a process of right sizing but retrenchment costs incurred will impact the first half?s performance. The benefits of the cost saving initiatives already implemented will benefit the division in the second half. The new project secured in Botswana is set to commence on 15 December 2014 and will add to revenue in the second half. Other new plant leasing contracts have also been secure during the period. Mr J Colling has been appointed as CEO for Contract Mining and will continue the turnaround initiatives with the support of the group CEO, Mr Hill.



The group has embarked on various initiatives, including a slowdown in capital growth, in order to ensure that the group remains liquid whilst there are uncertainties in the capital market. These initiatives and the continued strong cash generation will ensure that the group has the required funds to support operations.



The statement is based on information available at the time of this publication.

No change statement

With regard to the audited results for the year ended 30 June 2014 shareholders are advised that the annual financial statements will be distributed to shareholders on Monday, 29 September 2014 and contain no modifications to the audited results which were published on SENS on 2 September2014.



Notice of the annual general meeting

Notice is hereby given that the seventh annual general meeting of Eqstra shareholders will be held at 9:00 on Monday, 24 November 2014 at 61 Maple Street, Pomona, Kempton Park to transact the business as stated in the annual general meeting notice forming part of the annual financial statements.



Salient dates

The notice of the Company?s annual general meeting has been sent to its shareholders who were recorded as such in the Company?s securities register on Friday, 19 September 2014 being the notice record date set by the Board of the Company determining which shareholders are entitled to receive notice of the annual general meeting.



The record date on which shareholders of the Company must be registered as such in the Company?s securities register in order to attend and vote at the annual general meeting is Friday, 14 November 2014, being the voting record date set by the Board of the Company determining which shareholders are entitled to attend and vote at the annual general meeting. The last day to trade in order to be entitled to vote at the annual general meeting will therefore be Friday, 7 November 2014. Proxy forms must be lodged by no later than 9:00 on Thursday 20 November 2014. Any forms of proxy not lodged by this time must be handed to the chairperson of the annual general meeting immediately prior to the annual general meeting.
02-Sep-2014
(C)
Revenue from continuing operations for the year ended 30 June 2014 jumped to R10 billion (2013: R9.1 million). Operating profit lowered to R938 million (2013: R1 billion), while profit attributable to owners of the parent dropped to R240 million (2013: R385 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations weakened to 76.7cps (2013: 104cps).



Dividend

Despite the group's published dividend policy, the board decided not to declare a dividend in order to position the group for future growth in Fleet Management and Logistics and Industrial Equipment. The group will return to its stated dividend policy in the near term. The board considered the solvency and liquidity of the company and is satisfied that the company will remain solvent and liquid.



Prospects

Industrial Equipment anticipates the SA forklift market to remain challenging with the UK market expected to increase marginally. Eqstra aim to further balance their product portfolio and grow into sub-Sahara Africa and the UK, with a much stronger basket of products in place. A healthy order book for long-term leasing and cash sales is in place to support annuity revenue growth.



Fleet Management and Logistics earnings from leasing activities are set to remain defensive and higher interest rates will have a positive impact on earnings. Eqstra aim to drive organic leasing growth by acquiring new contracts from increased activity in government and parastatal outsourced tenders and growth in the African market. The group's investment in a state of the art ERP system comes on line next year and will unlock business efficiencies in support of reaching our ROE target.



Contract Mining and Plant Rental anticipates global commodity prices to remain under pressure. The repositioning of the division, in particular the company's exit from underperforming contracts and the initiative underway to refocus their plant rental business, into longer term leasing, will enhance Eqstra's ability to perform profitably through the commodity cycle. The company will continue to participate in Southern African tender activity, but redeploying surplus equipment could however be challenging. The recent changes in ownership of two mining projects may have potential upside for the division. The two-year SAFCEC wage agreement is in place until August 2015.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders were advised on SENS on 19 June 2014 that the group anticipates both headline earnings per share ("HEPS") and earnings per share ("EPS") to decrease by between 32% and 42% for the year ended 30 June 2014 when comparing HEPS and EPS as reported at 30 June 2013.



Subsequent to this announcement Protech Khuthele Holdings Limited (Protech) was placed under liquidation and the group adjusted the R63 million investment impairment for HEPS that had not been added back in the previous announcement. The group now anticipates HEPS to decrease by between 25% and 30% and EPS to decrease by between 37% and 42%.



The financial information, on which this trading statement is based, has not been reviewed and reported on by Eqstra's external auditors. The statement is based on financial information available at the time of this publication.



Results presentation

Eqstra's year end results will be released on SENS on or about 2 September 2014.

19-Jun-2014
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the group anticipates both headline earnings per share ("HEPS") and earnings per share ("EPS") to decrease by between 32% and 42% for the year ended 30 June 2014 when comparing HEPS and EPS as reported at 30 June 2013.



The negative impact of industrial action of R135 million during the first quarter of the financial year at Eqstra's Contract Mining and Plant Rental division, as disclosed in Eqstra's SENS announcement on 22 November 2013 and 27 January 2014, has contributed to these forecasted results. This division's profitability was furthermore negatively impacted by approximately R70 million following abnormally high rainfall during the third quarter and a further R20 million resulting from closure and retrenchment costs of non-profitable contracts. A slowdown in the South African economy and in the mining sector negatively impacted the plant rental business unit.



The group anticipates performances from both the Industrial Equipment and Fleet Management and Logistics divisions to be in line with management expectations for the year ended 30 June 2014. Included in the forecast the board has taken a conservative view to impair its 32.8% shareholding in Protech Khuthele Holdings Ltd. by R64 million to zero following the suspension of the shares on the JSE Ltd. Eqstra is in discussions with the business rescue practitioner to establish whether opportunities exist to protect Eqstra's investment.



Results presentation

(C)
Revenue for the interim period rose to R5 billion (R4.3 billion). Operating profit decreased to R461 million (R533 million). Profit attributable to owners of the parent lowered to R138 million (R181 million). In addition, headline earnings per share decreased to 34.9cps 46.8cps).



Dividend

No interim dividend has been declared in line with the group's dividend policy.



Prospects

The group's strategy to remain invested in the UK will benefit earnings as the UK economy improves. The drive to continually improve efficiencies has resulted in on-going cost reductions that will position the group for an anticipated weaker South African economy. Earnings from leasing activities are set to remain defensive and higher interest rates will have a positive impact on earnings. The mining sector, more specifically the Benga project, is expected to remain challenging.
27-Jan-2014
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the group anticipates continuing operations headline earnings per share ("HEPS") to decrease by between 24% and 29% for the six months ended 31 December 2013 when comparing continuing operations HEPS as reported at 31 December 2012, whilst earnings per share is expected to decrease by between 21% and 26% for the same period. The negative impact of industrial action during July 2013 at Eqstra's Contract Mining and Plant Rental division, as disclosed in Eqstra's SENS announcement on 22 November 2013, has contributed to these expected results.



Results presentation

Eqstra's interim results will be released on SENS on or about 4 March 2014. The group will be updating the market on its business in a presentation in Johannesburg on the same day, which will also be webcast on www.eqstra.co.za, and in Cape Town on 5 March 2014.

The board announced the appointment of Mr LL Von Zeuner as independent non-executive director, effective 22 November 2013.



The board reported that the Contract Mining and Plant Rental division has made good progress in improving overall contract management effectiveness. The division however traded under difficult circumstances as certain sites were impacted by three weeks industrial action as part of SAFCEC's two year national wage negotiations. The industrial action reduced operating profit by approximately R135 million. The Fleet Management and Logistic division recovered well following the termination of loss making activities. The Industrial Equipment division reported subdued sales in a SA market that decreased by 21% year-on-year. However the annuity nature of the business, strong aftermarket sales and the business diversification continue to underpin results.

On 21 February 2013 Eqstra informed the market that Rio Tinto Benga Limitada ("Rio Tinto") issued a notice of force majeure suspending operations at the Benga mine as from midnight 20 February 2013.

Eqstra is of the view that the flood damage to the Sena railway line does not constitute a force majeure event in terms of its opencast mining contract with Rio Tinto. Eqstra have now agreed to terms and conditions for the compensation of certain costs for the two week period from midnight 20 February 2013 to 6 March 2013.



The Sena railway line has subsequently been re-opened and Eqstra is working with Rio Tinto to recommence mining operations as soon as possible.

MCC's priorities since the disruptions have been to ensure the safety of employees, the security of assets and equipment and the rapid resumption of mining operations. An assessment of the impact of the damage to equipment and vehicles whose book value amounts to R98 million is ongoing, and will be lessened by the salvaging of component parts and insurance claims. Drilling and blasting equipment, fundamental to mining operations, was unaffected. On Saturday 9 July 2011, MCC maintenance teams began to repair the damaged vehicles and normal working shifts will resume today, Monday 11 July 2011. Employees who engaged in illegal industrial action and damage to property on 23 June will remain suspended, pending disciplinary action. MCC has engaged with the National Union of Mineworkers ("NUM") in terms of MCC's recognition agreement, and the parties are working closely with the South African Police Services in identifying and prosecuting those individuals suspected of being involved in the disruptions. Several arrests have been made.



Mining activities have been affected by these events. However, the trading statement that was released on SENS on 30 May 2011 remains valid, wherein it is stated that Eqstra anticipates headline earnings per share and earnings per share of not less than 60 cents for the financial year ended 30 June 2011 compared to the reported loss per share of 19.6 cents and a headline loss per share of 21.7 cents for the year ended 30 June 2010.

On 21 February 2011, Standard - Poor's Rating Services ("S-P's") raised the long- term South Africa national scale ratings on Eqstra to "zaBBB+" from "zaBBB". At the same time, they affirmed Eqstra's short-term rating of "zaA-2". According to S-P's research update, the credit rating upgrade of Eqstra reflects both the significant reduction in medium-term refinancing risks due to renegotiation of the bank funding package, and improving profitability and cash flow due to lower funding costs and earnings growth.

Revenue grew to R4 billion (R3.5 million) and operating profit rose to R426 million (R306 million). Net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of the company turned around to R128 million (loss of R58 million), resulting in headline earnings per share returning to a profit of 30.4cps (loss of 21.1cps).



Dividends

In line with the Group's dividend policy, the board will consider an annual dividend declaration at the financial year-end.



Outlook

Contract mining and plant rental will focus on improving the utilisation of its current asset base, increasing production output and bedding down of new contracts. Construction and mining equipment distributorships should continue to benefit from corrective actions taken and an improvement in demand from the mining sector. Passenger and commercial vehicles remains defensive with opportunities for diversification to enhance its value chain. Industrial equipment should continue to benefit from improving economic growth fundamentals in South Africa and the enlarged territory in the UK and Ireland, although in an uncertain economic environment. The Group's return to profitability and improved capital structure will allow management focus to revert to growth initiatives that will expand operations and the value-added component of existing businesses. Sectors of the domestic economy have shown signs of a recovery, which should result in increased opportunities for Group companies.

MCC Contracts (Pty) Ltd , a wholly owned subsidiary of JSE-listed Eqstra has signed a five year contract to mine coal at the Benga Coal Mine in Mozambique with Riversdale Mozambique Limitada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Riversdale Mining Ltd, an Australian based, publicly listed company. The contract to mine covers the open pit mining and associated services required for the initial Stage 1 development of the project. This entails initial production of 5.3 million ROM tonnes per year to produce approximately 1.7Mtpa of high quality hard coking coal and 0.3Mtpa of export thermal coal. The Benga Coal Project is Riversdale Mining's first project in Mozambique, and has a JORC Resource of 4 billion tonnes of coal, including premium hard coking coal and also thermal coal. In 2009, the Government of Mozambique approved the Mining Contract for the Benga Coal Project. Riversdale Mining and JV partner Tata Steel (35%) subsequently announced the approval of Stage 1 of the Benga Coal Project following the review of the feasibility study. Riversdale Mining believes the scale of the resources at Benga allows for cost- effective open cut mining, with the potential to produce 20 million tonnes of coal per year for a period of more than 25 years.
22 Feb 2010 09:07:39
(C)
Revenue for the period decreased by 20.5% from R4 412 million to R3 507 million mainly as a result of reduced revenue from the construction and mining divisions. Revenue increased by 0.9% compared to the second half of 2009. Operating profit for the period was R306 million (2008 : R735 million) . The loss attributable to owners of the parent for the period was R58 million. Headline loss per share was 23.3 cents compared to the headline earnings of 85.9 cents per share for the same period in 2008.



Dividend declaration

Because of the results, Eqstra proposed not to declare an interim dividend.



Outlook

The year to June 2010 will remain a challenge for Eqstra as the economy is seen to be sluggish and it is anticipated that the company will not achieve growth in earnings as announced in August 2009. Eqstra will continue to concentrate on working capital management, costs and cash flow.
26 Jan 2010 08:24:42
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that Eqstra's interim results are expected to be a basic and headline loss per share of between 15 and 25 cents which is lower than the previous corresponding period's basic earnings and basic headline earnings per share of 86.4 cents and 85.9 cents respectively.



The main contributing factors are the continuing global recession with reduced sales in the distributorships divisions, illegal industrial actions impacting production at existing mining operations and delays in commencement of contract mining projects. Impairment of deferred tax assets in the construction and mining: distributorships division contributed further to the loss. Despite these expected losses, management is pleased to report that all banking covenants will be met. Management continues to implement appropriate corrective measures to minimise the losses. The projected financial information in this trading statement has not been reviewed or reported on by Eqstra's auditors.

Eqstra planned to freeze new investments and use the cash to lower its increasing debt levels. The company's chief executive, Walter Hill, was quoted in Business Report as saying that next year group will only invest in the replacement of existing equipment.

The group reported losses after tax for the second half of the financial year of R179 million against the first half profit after tax of R224 million. Full year basic earnings and headline earnings per share to 30 June 2009 were 16.6c and 12.0c per share respectively, which is 90.3% and 92.4% lower than the 2008 comparable pro-forma basic earnings of 170.3c and pro-forma headline earnings of 158.7c per share. Revenue for the year ended 30 June 2009 grew by R347 million to R7 889 million, 4.6% higher compared to prior year.



Dividend

As a result of the poor trading environment, results for the year and high gearing, Eqstra proposed not to declare a dividend.



Outlook

For a company that listed at the peak of the market, particularly a geared company such as Eqstra, the economic events of the past year might have proved disastrous. Eqstra has proved its resilience in arguably the worst market conditions in decades, emerging with a keener understanding of its businesses, markets and embedded strengths. Management believe that the fallout of the global crisis will be felt in the southern African economy for months to come. Realistically the group does not expect a "V- shape" recovery in the economy and have positioned Eqstra by entering new markets i.e. coal, renegotiating banking covenants and cutting costs to operate in an environment where liquidity, growth and margins will be under pressure. Notwithstanding the foreseeable challenges, management anticipate that the business will again deliver real earnings growth for the next financial year.

The corresponding period's pro-forma results refer to the ten months' trading for the period to 30 April 2008 that represents the divisional financial statements of the Leasing and Capital Equipment division of Imperial Holdings Ltd prior to unbundling and two months audited financial statements from 1 May 2008 to 30 June 2008 of Eqstra.



On 27 February 2009 Eqstra advised shareholders that the prospects for the remaining six months would be very challenging by stating that "... effects of the depressed commodities prices, slowing economic growth, inclement weather and stricter financing criteria required by banks for financing capital equipment". These predictions have materialised and resulted in earnings and headline earnings per share for the financial year ended 30 June 2009 expected to be between 85% and 95% lower than the previous corresponding period's pro-forma earnings and pro-forma headline earnings per share of 170.4c and 158.7c respectively.



Management has implemented appropriate corrective measures to further minimise the effects of this downturn. Eqstra's construction and mining division has recently been awarded three opencast mining and rehabilitation contracts in coal which will replace the platinum contracts that ended. Two of these contracts have recently commenced whilst the other will start as soon as the mining licence is granted.

Eqstra is pleased to announce that the South African bank funding package has been confirmed and covenants renegotiated to incorporate a change of its interest cover ratio covenant methodology from EBIT (earnings before interest and taxation) to EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation).



The projected financial information in this trading statement has not been reviewed or reported on by Eqstra's auditors. The statement is based on available information at the time of this publication. Eqstra's financial year end results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 26 August 2009.

Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders to R224 million (2007:R46 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew 3.1% to reach 85.90cps (2007:83.30cps).



Dividends per share

No interim dividend was paid for the period under review.



Prospects

The second six months of the financial year is expected to be challenging. Eqstra is affected by the effects of the depressed commodities prices, slowing economic growth, inclement weather and stricter financing criteria required by banks for financing capital equipment. Decisive management action has been taken to prepare for this period, including but not limited to, cash retention and the reduction of inventories, costs and debt. Subsequent to 31 December 2008, MCC Contracts has secured an outsourced open cast mining contract with Coal of Africa to mine the Vele project near Musina. This project will ramp up to produce 5 million tonnes of coking and thermal coal per annum. Equipment from the concluded mining contracts will be redeployed to this contract which will negatively impact earnings until the project commences in August 2009. The passenger and commercial vehicle division is pursuing selective non capital intensive opportunities. The division has secured a contract with Swissport to lease assets to the value of R156 million and maintain their airside equipment at airports throughout South Africa. Prospects for the Industrial equipment division are largely linked to the general health of the economy. The board is confident that Eqstra is well positioned and has the appropriate strategies in place to successfully navigate through this challenging period.

(Official Notice)
Eqstra shareholders are referred to the Coal of Africa Ltd ("Coal") announcement released previously on SENS. MCC Contracts, a wholly-owned subsidiary of JSE-listed Eqstra has been selected as the preferred partner to conduct opencast mining operations for Coal of Africa Ltd ("Coal") at Vele Colliery. Coal is confident of MCC Contracts' ability to deliver on the volumes required. Aspects that were considered in the selection process included areas such as safety records, BEE compliance, past performance, cost effectiveness, funding access, financial stability, technical skills in both mining and engineering, machine acquisition and maintenance and ability to source local labour.



The Vele Project, in which Coal has a 74% interest, is located in the Limpopo Province. It is anticipated that mining will commence in Q3 2009 with 1 - 1.5 million tonnes per annum ("mtpa"), ramping up to 5mtpa of coking coal. As announced on 24 September 2008, the Vele resource has increased appreciably to some 721 million tonnes and this is expected to increase as drilling continues on the edges of the known resource.



The re-entry into coal mining is part of Eqstra's strategy to reduce the group's exposure to platinum. It is anticipated that the majority of equipment required will be provided from existing fleets that are currently under-utilised due to recent project cancellations (Lonmin) and normal project terminations (Zimplats). Discussions will now commence to formalise the agreements between Coal and MCC Contracts for mining activities to start by Q3 2009. Eqstra will be announcing its interim results on 25 February 2009.

According a Financial Mail "Corporate Report", Eqstra is well placed to whether the storm sweeping through the markets. CE Walter Hill says that the fundamentals of the group are strong "even under the prevailing market conditions" and that he is confident that the company's size will double in five years time. This means that Eqstra will become a R15 billion business, with Africa offering huge growth potential.

Eqstra would like to update shareholders about the impact of plans to suspend operations at the Marikana mine announced by Eastern Platinum Ltd ("Lonmin") on 18 November 2008. Eqstra has contracts with Lonmin and Aquarius Platinum South Africa Ltd for opencast mining activities in the Marikana area. In response to the closure, written notice has been given by Lonmin that mining operations will cease in December 2008. Capital equipment of Eqstra subsidiary MCC Contracts (Pty) Ltd with a value of R293 million will be redeployed to other existing and recently awarded MCC projects. The financial impact of the Lonmin suspension is expected to be less than 5% of Eqstra group revenue (2008: R7.5 billion). Demand for contract opencast mining remains strong and the business is characterised by capacity constraints where equipment lead times extend for up to 18 months.
