Investec is today, 17 October 2015, hosting an investor pre-close briefing at 9:00 (BST time) (10:00 South African time) which will focus on developments within the group?s core business areas in the first half of the financial year ending 31 March 2016.



Financial overview of the six months ending 30 September 2015

The operating environment in the UK has shown continued improvement supporting good levels of activity in the banking businesses. In South Africa the corporate and private banking businesses have benefitted from positive business momentum, notwithstanding an overall weakness in macro-economic conditions. Recent currency and equity market volatility (if sustained) is likely to create headwinds in the Wealth - Investment and Asset Management businesses.



Against this backdrop, the UK Specialist Banking business is expected to report results significantly higher than the prior year, whilst the South African Specialist Banking business is expected to report results well ahead of the prior year in Rands. Overall, the global Specialist Banking business is expected to report results substantially ahead of the prior year.



The Wealth - Investment and Asset Management divisions are expected to report results marginally behind the prior year. Both divisions have continued to experience net inflows of GBP1.1 billion and GBP1.5 billion, respectively.



Overall group results have been negatively impacted by the depreciation of the average Rand: Pounds Sterling exchange rate of approximately 8% over the period.



Taking into account the above mentioned factors, operating profit (refer to definition in the notes) is expected to be comfortably ahead of the prior year in Pounds Sterling.



Presentation details

The briefing starts at 9:00 (BST time) (10:00 South African time) and will be broadcast live via video conference from the group?s offices in Johannesburg to London. The briefing will also be available via a live and recorded telephone conference call, a live and delayed video webcast, a delayed podcast and a delayed Mp3. Further details in this regard can be found on the website at: www.investec.com

Investec on 19 September 2014 hosted an investor pre-close briefing at 9:00 (BST time) (10:00 South African time) which will focus on developments within the group's core business areas in the first half of the financial year ending 31 March 2015.



Financial overview of the six months ending 30 September 2014

The Wealth and Investment division's results are expected to increase substantially and Asset Management is expected to report results ahead of the prior year. Both divisions have benefited from higher levels of average funds under management supported by net inflows of GBP0.8 billion and GBP2.7 billion, respectively. The South African Specialist Banking business is expected to report results substantially ahead of the prior year in Rands, whilst the UK Specialist Banking business is expected to report results slightly behind the prior year. Overall, the global Specialist Banking business is expected to report results ahead of the prior year.



Overall group results have been negatively impacted by the depreciation of the average Rand: Pounds Sterling exchange rate of approximately 19% over the period. Against this backdrop of improved operating results and the depreciation of the Rand, operating profit (refer to definition in the notes) is expected to be ahead of the prior year in Pounds Sterling (a substantial increase in Rands).



Salient financial features include:

* Revenue (net of depreciation on operating leased assets) is expected to be marginally ahead of the prior year

* Recurring income as a percentage of total operating income is expected to be approximately 74% (2013: 72%)

* Impairments are expected to be approximately 12% lower than the prior year

* Expenses are expected to be marginally higher than the prior year

* For the period 31 March 2014 to 31 August 2014:

** Third party assets under management increased 9% to GBP119.6 billion

** Customer accounts (deposits):

*** decreased 3% to GBP21.8 billion however, adjusting for the sale of Investec Bank (Australia) Ltd. there was an increase of 4%

** Core loans and advances:

*** decreased 3% to GBP16.6 billion however, adjusting for the sale of Investec Bank (Australia) Ltd. there was an increase of 7%

Outlook

However, the volatile global economic environment and some unresolved macro risks remain a significant feature. Investec's business model has been substantially realigned and the focus going forward is to consolidate the gains made in its asset management business and broaden the distribution of the wealth management offering. The group will continue its focus on building on the progress made in clearing legacy issues and improving returns in its specialist banking business. Overall, Investec's balanced business model positions the group to adapt to an uncertain and changing environment and ensures it is well placed to benefit from an improvement in market conditions.

In terms of Investec's recent presentations and announcements shareholders would be aware that the Investec group has positioned its' strategic discussions around three core business areas namely, Asset Management, Wealth - Investment and Specialist Banking. In some respects the group feels that it has historically overcomplicated its external disclosures by elaborating on six core areas of business. As you would have already seen in the group's recent presentations all the banking businesses have been combined under one broader umbrella of the Specialist Bank. As a result the group has chosen to refine some of its disclosures. The group believes that these refinements provide greater clarity on the key income and balance sheet drivers of its business. Investec will be hosting a conference call at 11:00 SA time (10:00 UK time) on 11 May, 2012, to go through these refinements. Details pertaining to the conference call can be found at www.investec.com.

Investec hosted an investor pre-close briefing at 9:00 (BST time) (10:00 South African time) on 15 September which focused on developments within the group's core business areas in the first half of the financial year ending 31 March 2012.



Operational and financial overview of the six months ending 30 September 2011

Against a backdrop of poor economic fundamentals and weak debt and equity markets, operating conditions have been more difficult than originally anticipated. The Asset Management and Wealth Management businesses have continued to perform well as a result of increased average funds under management and net inflows. The Specialist Banking businesses have benefited from growth in net interest income and fee income but earnings from principal activities have been under pressure. The group's geographical and operational diversity has, however, supported a sound operational performance.



Salient financial features include:

* Operating profit (refer to definition in the notes) is expected to be in line with the prior year, with four of the six operating divisions showing an improved performance

* The UK and South African businesses are expected to post operating profit ahead of the prior year and the Australian business remains affected by elevated levels of impairments

* Since 31 March 2011:

** Core loans and advances are marginally down to GBP18.6 billion, however, in neutral currency (refer to explanation in the notes) they have increased by 2%

** Customer deposits increased by 3% to GBP25.1 billion

** Third party assets under management decreased by 4% to GBP85.6 billion, as a result of weak markets, notwithstanding net inflows of c.GBP2.6 billion

* Core advances (excluding own originated securitised assets) as a percentage of customer deposits were 70.0% (31 March 2011:72.4%).

* The group has a sound balance sheet with low gearing, substantial cash and near cash and solid capital ratios.



Operating conditions are difficult as the global geopolitical landscape remains uncertain. The group's operational performance remains stable underpinned by a solid recurring income base.



Interim results timetable

Interim results for the period ending 30 September 2011 will be released on 17 November 2011.

According to the Financial Mail, it is a surprise that South Africa's most entrepreneurial "big five" bank, Investec, is holding so much cash on its balance sheer, that it is facing pressure to return the money to shareholders. Group CEO Stephen Koseff admits that the bank has a lazy balance sheet. The group has GBP10 billion of cash on hand, up from GBP6.6 billion twelve months previously. However, Koseff says he has no plans to pay a special dividend until there is certainty about banking regulations such as Basel 3.

The placing is also expected to have a consequential effect of improving Investec's tier 1 capital without reducing the total capital adequacy ratio.



The placing is being conducted, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, through an accelerated book-building process to be carried out by Merrill Lynch International ("BofA Merrill Lynch") who are acting as sole bookrunner in relation to the placing. The identity of placees and the basis of the allocations are at the discretion of Investec and BofA Merrill Lynch. The number of placing shares and the price at which the Placing Shares are to be placed (the "placing price") will be agreed by Investec with BofA Merrill Lynch at the close of the book-building process. Details of the number of placing shares and the placing price will be announced as soon as practicable after the close of the book-building process. The placing shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares of the company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the placing shares. For the avoidance of doubt, the placing shares will not qualify for the final dividend declared for the year ended 31 March 2010.



The company will apply for admission of the placing shares to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange ("London Admission") and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange ("South African Admission"). It is expected that the London Admission will take place and that trading will commence on 6 August 2010, with the South African admission to occur shortly thereafter. The placing is conditional, inter alia, upon London Admission becoming effective and the placing agreement made between the company and BofA Merrill Lynch not being terminated. It is anticipated that the settlement date will be 6 August 2010.

Investec's small size relative to its bigger competitors, such as Goldman Sachs, gives it an advantage at a time when the industry and its rivals are under heightened public scrutiny. According to The Sunday Times Business Times' "Bank Notes" column, Investec can now operate far away from the public glare that the majors must face, and even capitalise on their efforts to reform themselves. The bank has also been hugely successful in building up its capital levels and liquidity, as well a business volumes in certain areas.

According to the Financial Mail, Investec's purchase of 33% of Protea Hotels ("Protea") may not be such a good deal. Even though part of the R700 million that Protea owed to Investec has been converted into equity, the hospitality company will not reveal much about its financial health. Protea MD Authur Gillis says that after the company's recent restructuring, debt levels will be "significantly lower", and that Investec CEO Steven Koseff does not seem to be worried about Protea's debt levels. As for the future, Protea is unlikely to be the last struggling company that the bank has loaned money to and will be taking up a stake in amid the global economic crisis.

While Investec's performance over a year has not been bad when compared with its international peers, its 40% decline in value has been worse than that of the four big local banks, reported Business Times.

Outlook

The global environment is extremely challenging. The group expects activity levels to remain low, which may impact revenue generation in the second six months of its financial year. A high level of recurring income should support sustainability of earnings, albeit at a lower level.

Successful past acquisitions include its South African private client broking business, its property administration business, as well as purchases in the UK and Australia. When asked why Investec paid GBP221 million for Kensington, Koseff responded that "when we first bought it in May, no-one had a problem. But as we took delivery in August, the market blew up and everyone had a problem". Koseff also added that other investment banks were also interested in Kensington at the time.

(Official Notice)
Further to Investec's financial results announcement for the year ended 31 March 2006, shareholders are advised that the boards of directors of Investec Ltd and Investec plc have proposed to subdivide each Investec Ltd ordinary share of ZAR0.001 into five shares of ZAR0.0002 each and each Investec plc ordinary share of GBP0.001 into five shares of GBP0.0002 each. As part of the Dual Listed Company ("DLC") structure, each of Investec plc and Investec Ltd has issued "special converting shares" to a special purpose company. The special converting shares are an essential feature of the DLC structure in terms of ensuring that the joint electorate voting arrangements function as intended and the shareholders of Investec plc and Investec Ltd are treated equivalently in economic terms (on a per share basis). In order to maintain the DLC voting structure and equivalence of treatment, it is necessary that the number of special converting shares in issue reflects the number of ordinary shares in issue. As a result and in order to give effect to the subdivision, the class "A" preference shares and the special convertible redeemable preference shares each in the authorised share capital of Investec Ltd, and the special converting shares, will also be subdivided on a five for one basis.



Shareholder approval

The subdivision, which is subject to conditions, will require the approval of shareholders of both Investec Ltd and Investec plc

At the general meeting held on Monday, 14 November 2005, the special and ordinary resolutions required to give effect to the Odd-lot offer were duly passed by the required majority of Investec Members. Following the release of the Odd-lot offer price announcement on SENS on Friday, 18 November 2005, Investec has become aware that due to recent trading activity the number of Odd-lot holders has increased significantly. Therefore the costs of implementing the Odd-lot offer have increased substantially and will continue to do so as long as this trading activity persists. In light of the substantial increase in the costs of implementing the Odd-lot offer, it is appropriate that the board reconsiders whether implementing the Odd-lot offer remains in the best interests of the Investec members as a whole. Accordingly, Investec will continue to monitor the trading activity of ordinary shares. Investec members are advised that Investec reserves the right to withdraw the Odd-lot offer to the Odd-lot holders.



Investec members are advised to exercise caution when dealing in their Investec ordinary shares until a further announcement has been released.

Takeover provisions

The Investec Directors are proposing amendments to the takeover provisions contained in the articles of association of both Investec Ltd and Investec plc. These provisions were originally put in place when the DLC structure was created to seek to ensure that any potential bidder would have to make a bid for Investec as a whole rather than being able to make a bid for either Investec Ltd or Investec plc alone. The proposed amendments seek to protect this position whilst ensuring that the provisions in the articles of association of Investec Ltd and Investec plc comply with the EU Takeover Directive which is due to be brought into effect in the United Kingdom in the first half of 2006.



The incentive plan

The Investec directors are proposing the introduction of a new Incentive Plan for Investec plc. The introduction of this new plan requires the approval of Investec Members at the Investec General Meetings. In addition, the Investec directors are proposing that, conditional on approval of the Incentive Plan, Investec Ltd be authorised to establish further plans, based on the Incentive Plan, for the benefit of Investec Ltd employees.
