Turnover decreased to R51.5 million (R76.8 million). Net attributable profit came to R10.7 million (R15.3 million). In addition, headline earnings per share was recorded at 6.8cps (9.8cps).



Distribution

The board has not declared an interim dividend.



Prospects

Other than the two key factors affecting our turnover, as discussed above and being permanent features of our business, a further important factor that may have a negative effect on our business in the short term is that our B-BBEE certificate was downgraded on 15 September 2017, from an encouraging Level 3 under the ?old? ICT sector codes to an untenable and disappointing Level 8 under the ?new? ICT sector codes. As such, attaining an improved B-BBEE certificate level is of paramount importance and is receiving our immediate attention.



Despite the above, we remain optimistic about our longer-term prospects as the key drivers of the IT security market remain robust. With the continued evolution and persistence of threats and attacks against corporate information and IT resources, together with the increased regulatory and legislative compliance requirements, stakeholders continue to elevate the importance of IT security within their organisations. By leveraging this positive sentiment towards the information security market, as well as our positioning as a thought leader in this market segment, our stakeholders are likely to benefit from above average tangible returns over time.

(Official Notice)
A review of the financial results for the six-month period ended 31 August 2017 by management has indicated that the earnings per share and headline earnings per share are expected to be between 5.88 cents and 7.84 cents, reflecting a decrease of between 20% and 40% compared to the earnings per share and headline earnings per share of 9.8 cents for the six-month period ended 31 August 2016.

Shareholders are advised that, at the annual general meeting of ISA held on Wednesday, 28 June 2017, all the resolutions as set out in the notice of annual general meeting were passed by the requisite majority of shareholders. The number of shares voted in person or by proxy was 103 159 029, representing 60.47% of the total issued share capital of the same class of ISA shares.

Revenue for the year soared to R163.4 million (2016: R93.8 million), profit attributable to equity shareholders for the year jumped to R29.7 million (2016: R19.3 million), while headline earnings per share grew to 19.1 cents per share (2016: 12.2 cents per share).



Dividend

Following the 2016 financial year, a final dividend of R9.4 million was declared and paid to shareholders, representing a cash distribution of 6 cents per share. We are now pleased to declare a final dividend to shareholders for the year ended 28 February 2017 of 10 cents per share, which will be subject to the dividend tax legislation.



Company prospects

ISA continue to be optimistic about the long-term prospects of the group, as the key drivers of the information security market remain robust. With the continued evolution and persistence of threats and attacks against organisational information and IT resources, together with the increased regulatory and legislative compliance requirements, stakeholders continue to elevate the importance of IT security within their organisations. By leveraging this positive sentiment towards the information security market, as well as our positioning as a thought leader in this market segment, we are likely to continue delivering above average tangible returns over time.



In the shorter-term however, we note that revenue and gross profit levels may be negatively affected should there is a dramatic increase in the price of imported inventory due to changes in the exchange rate from current levels. Whilst a gradual weakening in the local currency is often factored into organisational budgets, few are able to absorb substantial cost increases into their already stretched budgets. The management team is monitoring this business dynamic and will work closely with their customers and suppliers to find solutions to minimise the effects on all concerned.



Notice of AGM

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of shareholders of ISA will be held at 10:00 on Wednesday, 28 June 2017 at the company's registered office situated at Block 9, Pinewood Office Park, 33 Riley Road, Woodmead, Sandton, for the purpose of considering, and, if deemed fit, passing, with or without modification, the resolutions set out in the notice of Annual General Meeting which is contained in the integrated annual report.

In the shorter-term however, management is concerned that revenue and gross profit levels may be negatively affected due to the dramatic increase in the price of imported inventory. Whilst a gradual weakening in the local currency is often factored into corporate budgets, few anticipated the dramatic volatility and weakening of the Rand to current levels, and many customers are finding it difficult to absorb the additional cost into their already stretched budgets. Management is monitoring this situation closely and is committed to working with their customers and suppliers to find creative ways to minimise the effects on all concerned, while maintaining project and operational momentum in the pipeline.

The number of shares voted in person or by proxy was 104 494 442, representing 61.25% of the total issued share capital of the same class of ISA shares.



The number of shares which abstained from voting was 200 000, representing 0.12% of the total issued share capital of the same class of ISA shares.
01-Jun-2015
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the 2015 Integrated Annual Report of ISA distributed to shareholders on 22 May 2015 (2015 Annual Report), which details EmpowerGroup Technology Pty td?s (EmpowerGroup) interest in the issued shares of ISA, together with the indirect beneficial interests for each of Messrs Alan Naidoo (Alan) and Andrew Maren (Andrew), being non-executive directors of ISA and executive directors of EmpowerGroup.



Following a restructuring within EmpowerGroup (EmpowerGroup Restructuring), Andrew has disposed of his interest in EmpowerGroup and has therefore resigned as a Director of EmpowerGroup. While EmpowerGroup retains its 25.2% interest in the issued shares of ISA, net of treasury shares, following the EmpowerGroup Restructuring the indirect beneficial interest of Alan has increased to 18 753 778 shares in ISA and the indirect beneficial interest of Andrew has decreased to nil shares in ISA.



In compliance with paragraph 3.59 of the Listings Requirements of JSE Limited, the board of directors of ISA (the Board) hereby notifies its shareholders that Andrew has resigned as a non-executive director of ISA with effect from 1 June 2015.



Accordingly, ordinary resolution 3: re-election of retiring director Andrew Maren set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting included in the 2015 Annual Report, will be withdrawn prior to the Annual General Meeting to be held on 24 June 2015.

Dividend

No dividends were declared and paid during the year under review. As the Group reduced their debt levels and replenished cash resources to levels ahead of budget, the board is pleased to declare an ordinary dividend to shareholders of 4.5 cents per share, for the year ended 28 February 2015, representing half of the earnings per share achieved during the year, to all shareholders recorded in the shareholders register on 24 July 2015 and payable on 27 July 2015.



Prospects

The company continues to be optimistic about its long term prospects, as the key drivers of the information security market remain robust. With the continued evolution and persistence of threats and attacks against corporate information and IT resources, together with the increased regulatory and legislative compliance requirements, stakeholders continue to elevate the importance of IT security within their organisations. By leveraging this positive sentiment towards the information security market, as well as its positioning as a thought leader in this market segment, the company is likely to deliver above average tangible returns over time.



Vigilant cost controls, innovation and a focus on higher value service delivery remains its priority. Organic growth within the existing core business is likely to be the primary route to achieving its growth aspirations, but the possibility of acquisitive growth to complement its strategy is not to be excluded, should the right opportunity present itself.

Further to the announcements released on SENS on 30 October 2013, 9 December 2013 and 10 January 2014, and the circular to ISA shareholders issued on 9 December 2013 (and using the terms defined therein unless otherwise stated), shareholders are hereby advised that, in accordance with the Loan Agreement and the Buy-Back Option Agreement entered into between ISA and EmpowerGroup governing the Specific Repurchase, EmpowerGroup has, with effect from 28 August 2014, procured the transfer to Black Women such number of shares in the issued shares of EmpowerGroup equal to 40% of the entire issued share capital of EmpowerGroup ("Black Women Transaction").



Accordingly, ISA will not be exercising its Second Option to purchase the Second Option Shares from EmpowerGroup.



The Black Women Transaction has resulted in 10% of the issued shares of ISA, net of treasury shares, being deemed to be held by Black Women on the basis of the flow through principle as contemplated in the codes of good practice issued from time to time in terms of section 9 of the BEE Act.



While EmpowerGroup retains its 25.1% interest in the issued shares of ISA, net of treasury shares, as a consequence of the Black Women Transaction the indirect beneficial interests for each of Messrs Alan Naidoo and Andrew Maren, being non-executive directors of ISA and executive directors of EmpowerGroup, has decreased from 15 628 149 to 9 376 889 shares in ISA.

(Official Notice)
The board of directors of ISA (the Board) hereby notifies its shareholders of the change in function of Mr Thapeli Matsabu from independent non-executive director to non-executive director of the Company, with effect from 1 August 2014. The aforementioned change in function is due to Thapeli being appointed as Chief Executive Officer of a new business venture, DataProof Communications, which ISA is undertaking in partnership with Thapeli.



As Thapeli is no longer considered to be an independent non-executive director, he will no longer be serving on the Audit Committee. In line with the King III requirement that a board of directors should comprise a balance of power, with a majority of non-executive directors, the majority of whom should be independent, the Board has commenced the process of identifying appropriate candidates for appointment as an independent non- executive director to the Board and the Audit Committee.

Revenue for the year decreased to R51.5 million (R64.2 million). Profit for the year attributable to equity holders shrunk to R9.5 million (R12.9 million). In addition, headline earnings per share narrowed to 5.2 cents per share (7.0 cents per share).



Dividend

Ordinary dividend number 10, of 5.2 cents per share, for the year ended 28 February 2013, was declared.



Market and prospects

ISA continues to be optimistic about its long term prospects as the key drivers of the IT security market remains robust. With the continued evolution of threats and attacks against organisations, together with the increased regulatory and legislative compliance requirements, stakeholders continue to elevate the importance of IT security within their organisations. However, the company does anticipate further erratic performance due to the heavy weighting of its New Solution Sales on its overall results. Whilst ISA's pipeline is stronger than it was a year ago, one cannot anticipate the timing of these larger deals and as such, the company is unfortunately unable to offer better guidance for shorter term reporting cycles.



Strategically, management remains determined to build a trusted information security brand. Vigilant cost controls, cash management disciplines, innovative offerings and a persistent focus on service delivery remain the company's priority.

Outlook

Management is of the view that an essential part of ISA's longer term growth strategy is an investment in organic growth, where we can build and enhance our existing capabilities.



The key drivers of the IT security market remain robust and ISA is well positioned to benefit from this. The continued evolution of threats and attacks against organisations, together with the increased regulatory and legislative compliance requirements, continue to elevate the importance of IT security within organisations. In addition, IT security remains a cornerstone for business enablement, which we believe should create opportunities for us in other areas of the ICT market, as customers are giving more priority to their need for a secure converged information and communication framework.

This objective was attained with revenue of R38 million (R31 million). The quality of revenue further improved during the period with an increase in annuity-derived revenue to 58% (50%), which sets a solid foundation for sustainable revenue into the future. Headline earnings of R7.9 million and earnings of R7.5 million were substantially generated in cash, allowing ISA to close the financial year with cash resources amounting to R11.9 million.



Dividend

The board has declared an ordinary dividend of 4c per share, to be ratified at the annual general meeting on 23 June 2006.



Prospects

ISA should be able to sustain its organic growth objectives with little impact to its capital structures.

Shareholders are advised that in the Y3K Group circular to shareholders dated 16 May 2005, regarding the acquisition of Information Security Architects (Pty) Ltd, and iSecure (Pty) Ltd and related matters, resulting in the reverse take-over of Y3K Group by Information Security Architects (Pty) Ltd, it was proposed that the directors would sell one million ISA shares at 13,396cps to employees of ISA via the share incentive trust. This transaction did not take place as the employees have left the employ of the company, and consequently the sale of shares could not be fulfilled. However, in disclosing the transaction in the circular and the 2005 annual report, disclosure was made as if the directors had sold their shares, and the employees had purchased the shares via the share incentive trust. Due to the non-fulfillment of this share sale, the directors' interests in the company's share capital will remain as if the sale of shares had not taken place. The directors interests are as follows:

R S Price 18.92%

D C Seaton 0.57%

D Perreira 0.12%

C S Katz 29.05%

P J G Green 16.84%

The special resolution regarding the change of name from Y3K Group Ltd to ISA Holdings Ltd has been registered. Trading in ISA Holding Ltd securities, under the abbreviated name `ISA` and under the new ISIN code: ZAE000067344 began on the AltX with effect from the commencement of trade on Monday 27 June 2005.

Turnover of R31.4m (R9.1m) was in line with budget, despite the constant pressure arising from the unanticipated strength and instability of the rand throughout the year. A net profit of R3.2m (R135 000) was achieved. The group`s management remained focused on rigorous margin and cost control during the year, which enabled the group to achieve headline earnings 3.6cps (0.3cps) and earnings of 2.5cps (0.3cps). These were both in excess of budget.



A dividend of 2cps was proposed, comprised of an ordinary dividend of 1cps and a special dividend of 1cps and is to be approved by shareholders at the AGM on 8 July 2005.
