The group indicated that the market volatility caused by Brexit in the UK and the recent downgrades in South Africa, had not dampened its appetite for business.

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.

Investec Asset Management ("IAM") CEO, Hendrik du Toit, has denied rumour's that the unit will be spun-off by Investec plc and Investec Ltd. ("Investec"), despite suggesting to Bloomberg in May 2010 that just such a scenario could take place. Du Toit insists that he was misquoted and told Finweek that "We're not going to change our architecture in any serious way." IAM has been a strong performer and there have been growing calls in the US and Europe for retail banking and investment banking to be separated, which would affect Investec.

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.

(Official Notice)
Investec plc announced today its intention to issue up to 22 000 000 new ordinary shares (the "placing") of GBP0.0002 each (the "placing shares") representing approximately 4.27 per cent of the number of the existing ordinary shares of the company and approximately 2.79 per cent of the number of the combined existing ordinary shares of the company and Investec Ltd to take advantage of opportunities in credit and other markets. 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.

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

Investec plc members are referred to the circular issued on 20 October 2005 in which members were advised that the purpose of the Odd- lot Offer is to reduce, as far as possible, the number of Odd-lot holdings in Investec plc thereby reducing the administrative cost associated with the large number of Odd-lot holders. Members were also advised that, based on the Odd-lot holdings as at 10 October 2005, being the last practicable date prior to the issue of the circular, the Odd-lot offer and the potential buyback of shares by Investec plc would have no significant effect on the earnings and headline earnings per ordinary share as well as the net asset value and net tangible asset value. Based on this the board were unanimously of the opinion that implementing the Odd-lot offer would be in the best interests of Investec members as a whole and recommended that members vote in favour of the resolutions necessary to implement the offer. At the extraordinary 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 members. Following the release of the Odd-lot offer price announcement on RNS on Friday, 18 November 2005, Investec plc 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 plc members as a whole. Accordingly, Investec plc will continue to monitor the trading activity of ordinary shares. Members are advised that Investec plc reserves the right to withdraw the Odd-lot offer to the Odd-lot holders



Members are advised to exercise caution when dealing in their Investec plc 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.
