(Media Comment)
The Financial Mail reported on Invicta's turn around in the year ending March 2017. The company's revenue increased by 9.5%, operating profit excluding exchange movements grew by 34% and headline earnings per share rose by 37.3%. Through skilful management and leadership, the company managed to produce good results despite serving the beleaguered construction, mining and recently, the agricultural sectors. The group streamlined its engineering operations which resulted in a reduction in inventory and a cash flow boost. The company's tractor and harvester distributor division's revenue was up by 10.5% due to firm cost control and a shift in sales from new equipment to spares. Invicta aims to dispose its building materials division and pursue its strategy to enhance the value of organic growth with bolt-on acquisitions. The company has the potential to thrive especially if South Africa's economy turns around.

Invicta announced that its tool and equipment subsidiary, Man-Dirk (Pty) Ltd. ("Mandirk"), has acquired 100% of Sibuyile Industrial Supplies (Pty) Ltd. with effect from 1 September 2015 ("the Acquisition"). The Acquisition has been unconditionally approved by the South African Competition Authorities, as required.



Sibuyile was established in 1980 and is a well respected player in the tool and equipment industry in Vereeniging and surrounds.



This strategically important and mutually beneficial transaction further diversifies Mandirk's customer base, extends its geographic footprint and provides an opportunity to leverage the enlarged Mandirk group's purchasing power.



The Acquisition falls below the threshold of the categorisation of transactions which require disclosure in terms of the JSE Ltd.'s Listings Requirements. Nevertheless, the Board of Invicta deemed it appropriate to inform shareholders of the Acquisition.

The Group will continue to seek growth through market share gains, growth into Africa and select strategic acquisitions. Management remains intensely focused on margin and expense management, working capital control and cash generation in existing operations.

Invicta announce that its major subsidiary, Bearing Man Group (Pty) Ltd.

The acquisition has been unconditionally approved by the South African and Namibian Competition Authorities, as required. Hyflo was established in 1954 and is a well respected player in the Fluid Power industry engaged in the design, manufacturing, marketing and servicing of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. Hyflo has a national presence with branches in Cape Town, Bellville, Vredenburg, Johannesburg, Boksburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein as well as in Windhoek, Namibia.



This strategically important and mutually beneficial transaction further entrenches BMG's differentiated value proposition by augmenting its extensive engineering product offering with value adding technical engineering expertise and provides an established presence in the oil and gas, defence, fishing and marine industries, amongst many others. Although Hyflo will continue to operate as a stand-alone business within the BMG group, the complementary, rather than overlapping, fit of the Hyflo and BMG Fluid Power businesses establishes the BMG group as a leading player in this market segment across southern Africa.



The acquisition falls below the threshold of the categorisation of transactions which require disclosure in terms of the JSE Ltd.'s Listings Requirements. Nevertheless, the Board of Invicta deemed it appropriate to inform shareholders of the acquisition.

The financial results on which this trading statement is based have not been reviewed or reported on by the Company?s auditors.

Profit attributable to owners lowered to R216.9 million (R263.1 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share shrunk to 292 cents per share (353 cents per share).



Preference share dividend

Notice is hereby given that the Directors have declared a gross cash dividend on 3 November 2014 of 387.39 cents (329.2815 cents net of dividend withholding tax) per preference share for the period from 6 June 2014 to 3 November 2014.



Ordinary share dividend

The Board has declared a gross interim dividend on 6 November 2014 of 84 cents per share (71.4000 cents net of dividend withholding tax).



Prospects

Trading conditions in the second half of the year are expected to continue to be tough, but slightly better.



Volumes in BMG seem to be returning to normal, although margins are still under pressure. BMG is improving its distribution capabilities and is expanding its warehouse facilities in Johannesburg. It is planning to re-locate some of its head office functions from Durban to Johannesburg.



In CEG, the agricultural machinery market volumes are expected to continue declining in the short term, and gross margins are likely to continue to be under pressure. Construction machinery volumes are expected to remain constant, but better sourcing should improve margins. Growth in Africa is a focus, but is expected to be slow.



The markets serviced by Kian Ann are not expected to improve much in the short term, but recent steps taken at Kian Ann should improve performance. The 25% held by minority shareholders has been acquired by the Invicta Group, management has been restructured and an underperforming subsidiary in Kian Ann was disposed of effective 1 October 2014.



On the domestic front, the Group is in the process of concluding the acquisition of a number of bolt-on businesses. None of these acquisitions are large enough to require specific SENS announcements, however, voluntary notifications will be made where deemed appropriate.

(Official Notice)
Invicta wishes to advise shareholders that for the year ended 31 March 2014, the company expects normalised earnings per share ("EPS") to be 5 % to 8 % above those reported on for the previous corresponding period.



Invicta shareholders are reminded that the above percentage changes take into account an adjustment for the once off non-cash items, totalling R158 172 000 before tax, which were excluded from the prior year results to determine normalised EPS. This same amount was also excluded from earnings in applying our yearend dividend cover ratio of 2.75 in determining the dividend to be paid to shareholders for the prior year.



If the same adjustment is made to the headline earnings per share ("HEPS") as reported on for the previous corresponding period, the company expects an increase of 14% to 18% in normalised HEPS.



Normalised EPS for the year ended 31 March 2014 is the same as the EPS for the year.



The company's results will be released in mid-June 2014.

Revenue for the interim period ended 30 September 2013 shot up by 46% to R5.1 billion (2012: R3.5 billion). Operating profit soared by 57% to R492.7 million (2012: R314.7 million), profit for the period jumped by 41% to R333.2 million (2012: R236.9 million), while profit attributable to owners of the company rose to R263.1 million (2012: R225.9 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share grew by 13% to 353cps (2012: 313cps).



Dividend

The Board has declared a gross interim dividend on 7 November 2013 of 102cps.



Prospects

Trading conditions in the second half of the year are expected to be similar to the first half. The labour unrest in the mining and automotive industries has been resolved, although at the time of going to press with this report, there were rumblings of fresh unrest in the mining sector. This underscores the challenges of doing business in South Africa, which is entering an election year.



Notwithstanding the above, Invicta will continue to do what it has done well in the past manage its operations soundly while seeking out acquisitions and opportunities for growth. In the first half of the year, management resolved to make no further acquisitions until those made in the past twelve months had been bedded down satisfactorily. This has largely been achieved. The Group will focus on diversifying its businesses geographically and has set the intent of becoming a more global business in the sectors in which it has operated historically.

Invicta has embarked on a path of growing its Rand hedge business with the acquisition of Kian Ann and by developing its business in Africa.

Invicta announced that its holding company for its South African operations Humulani Investments (Pty) Ltd. through its Capital Equipment Group ("CEG"), has concluded an agreement to acquire 100% of the ordinary share capital of High Power Equipment Africa (Pty) Ltd. which holds the Hyundai earthmoving and construction equipment and spare parts agency for South Africa and surrounding countries. The acquisition is a strategic investment which will enable Invicta to broaden its product offering to the plant hire, construction, quarrying and mining industries in South Africa and Africa. The transaction has been approved by the Competition Commission. CEG will keep the Hyundai distribution separate from its other related equipment operations. Hyundai has proved its quality and competitiveness over the years and it?s technically qualities are well suited for the African environment and will continue to make significant inroads into the higher tonnage excavator market. The transaction falls below the threshold of the categorisation of transactions which require disclosure in terms of the JSE Ltd.'s Listings Requirements. Nevertheless, due to the key fit of this acquisition, the directors of Invicta deemed it appropriate to inform shareholders of the transaction.

(Official Notice)

Revenue increased by 37% to R3.5 billion (R2.6 billion). Operating income was up 21% to R314.7 million (R260.9 million). Net attributable profit rose to R225.9 million (R189.3 million). In addition, headline earnings per share grew by 23% to 313cps (254cps).



Dividend

An ordinary interim dividend of 89cps has been declared.



Prospects

Trading conditions in the sectors in which the Group operates appear to be tracking the same path as in the first half of the year. The mining strikes have largely abated, although some mines are still experiencing unrest. Confidence in the mining sector has suffered a set-back though and management expects that it will take some time for things to return to normal. Conditions in the agricultural machinery sector should remain strong. The construction machinery sector appears to have tapered off slightly, but is stable. The weakening and volatile Rand is expected to keep pressure on margins as the resultant price increases are difficult to pass on to customers in the current climate. The strategic acquisition of Kian Ann should be completed in early 2013. The business is the first step in the Group's strategy to diversify its base beyond the borders of South Africa in order to sustain its historic growth and to seek new markets. The Board remains confident of the continued success of the Group. This forecast has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's auditors.

The integrated annual report containing audited annual financial statements for the group and company for the year ended 31 March 2012 has been posted to shareholders on Saturday, 30 June 2012. There has been no change from the audited results for the year ended 31 March 2012, released on SENS on Tuesday, 5 June 2012 and published in the press on Wednesday, 6 June 2012 and the integrated annual report.



The annual report contains a notice of annual general meeting for the company, which will be held in the boardroom, Invicta Holdings Ltd., 3rd Floor, Pepkor House, 36 Stellenberg Road, Parow Industria, Cape Town on Tuesday, 14 August 2012 at 16:00.

Revenue increased by 24% to R5.6 billion (2011: R4.5 billion). Operating profit rose by 26% to R634.6 million (2011: R505.5 million), while profit attributable to owners of the company grew to R491.6 million (2011: R354.2 million).

Dividend

The board has approved and declared a final dividend of 177cps (gross) in respect of the year ended 31 March 2012.



Prospects

Trading conditions in the sectors in which the group operates appear to be levelling off. The group is concerned about the lack of investment in mining in South Africa and the apparent gradual de-industrialisation of the country, which, factors, inter alia, are prompting Invicta to look beyond the borders of South Africa for growth in its core businesses.



BMG acquired Operational Marketing (Pty) Ltd and OMSA Valves and Instrumentation (Pty) Ltd (OMSA Group) with effect from 1 April 2012. OMSA adds a leading position in lubrication equipment, systems and field service to BMG. In addition it brings significant potential for BMG to expand in filtration, valves and instrumentation. BMG expects trading conditions for the coming year to be more challenging than the past year.



In the CEG, grain prices (a big driver of demand for agricultural machinery in South Africa) have softened since the end of the financial year. This may lead to a decline in demand for agricultural machinery. Currently demand in the construction equipment market is showing some improvement on last year. However, if government's commitment to infrastructure expenditure becomes a reality, then demand should improve further.

Revenue increased by 18% to R2.6 billion (R2.2 billion). Operating income was up 22% to R260.9 million (R214.2 million). Net attributable profit rose to R189.3 million (R140.9 million). In addition, headline earnings per share grew by 27% to 254c (200cps).



Dividend

Outlook

If the current trading conditions persist, the board remains confident of the continued success of the group for the remainder of the year. Rand volatility may create some instability as it may render pricing of goods difficult. Currency management and cash generation will therefore remain a key management focus. The group has identified a number of acquisitions which it is currently considering and hopes to conclude by year-end.

Shareholders are advised that Invicta has entered into negotiations with their BEE partners, aloeCap (Pty) Ltd for the possible restructuring of their 20% interest in Humulani Investments (Pty) Ltd, an Invicta subsidiary, which, if successfully concluded, may have a material effect on the price of the company's Securities.

Revenue increased from R2 billion to R2.2 billion in 2010. Operating profit rose by 23% to R214.2 million (September 2009:R174.1 million). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders increased to R141 million (September 2009: R121.8 million).Headline earnings share increased by 21% to 200cps (September 2009:165cps).



Dividends per share

A interim dividend of 57cps was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

Trading conditions in the sectors in which the group operates appear, at best, to be stable. The current strength of the Rand continues to be a source of concern as it is likely to maintain pressure on margins and reduce the income of key customers which operate in export orientated sectors. The group will continue to focus on improving operational efficiencies to counter the negative effects of the strong Rand. BMG has grown its base by making strategic acquisitions and will continue to do so as and when opportunities arise.



In the CED, agricultural equipment conditions are expected to continue to be challenging. Low grain prices and a strong Rand are expected to keep the demand for agricultural equipment at current muted levels. Conditions in the construction equipment market are still depressed. The Board has maintained an interim dividend cover ratio of 3,5 times with an interim dividend of 57 cents per share, up 16% from the comparative period. The annual dividend cover ratio policy currently is 3,0 times. The board is pleased with the results for the period under review, but expects trading conditions to continue to be challenging in the second half of the financial year.

Revenue declined by 12.3% to R4 billion (R4.5 billion) and operating income decreased by 8.9% to R453.3 million (R497.4 million). Net attributable profit grew by 2.6% to R320.9 million (R312.8 million). In addition, headline earnings per share grew by 1.6% to 441cps (434cps).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 102cps has been declared.



Prospects

Trading conditions in the sectors in which the group operates appear to have stabilised. The current strength of the rand is however a source for concern as it could lead to a reduction in the price of group products and reduce the income of key customers which operate in export orientated sectors. Volumes in BMG appear to have stabilised, but trading is still volatile and patchy. The macro global environment indicates a return to normal trading in the medium term.



This should, in turn, result in increased demand for BMG products and services. In the CED, agricultural machinery conditions are expected to continue to be challenging. Low grain prices are expected to keep the demand for agricultural machinery at current muted levels. Conditions in the construction equipment market are still depressed and management does not expect this to improve in the next 12 months. The division has successfully reduced its costs to ensure profitable trading and working capital is carefully managed. The acquisition of Criterion Equipment has been bedded down and the company is now profitable. Criterion Equipment should make a meaningful contribution to the CED in the coming year and will help to spread the construction equipment section's overheads.



The board remains confident of the continued success of the group and will continue to seek out opportunities to grow its product base and penetrate new markets.

Invicta announced that its BMG division has successfully concluded negotiations for the acquisition of 70% of the issued share capital of WPH. The transaction is still subject to the approval of the Competition Commission. WPH is a company used for the restructuring of the Wegezi Group of companies specifically to facilitate this transaction with BMG. The former companies in the Wegezi Group that were amalgamated into WPH consist of Wegezi Electric Machines (Pty) Ltd, VG Pumps and Valves (Pty) Ltd and Electric Motor Re- manufacturers CC. Wegezi Transformers (Pty) Ltd will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Wegezi Power Holdings Pty (Ltd) after the amalgamation. Wegezi was established in 1981 and started trading as Gurney-Evershed, a motor rewinding company based in Pretoria West. The company has diversified from its core business into the manufacture and repair of transformers, electric switch gear, panels, pumps and offers an all round on site repair or replacement partnership with the end user. The group operates from a 6 000 m2 facility and has a total staff compliment of 200.



This acquisition fits into BMG's strategy of offering a total solutions package to clients - from on site condition monitoring to repair or replacement. The transaction falls below the threshold of the categorization of transactions which require disclosure in terms of the JSE Listings Requirements. Nevertheless, due to the strategic nature and long term importance of this acquisition, the directors of Invicta

Revenue decreased from R2 228 million to R1 985 million in 2009. Profit before taxation decreased to R181.8 million (2008:R210.1 million). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders decreased to R121.7 million (R131.8 million).Headline earnings on a per share basis decreased to 165cps (184cps).



Dividends per share

A interim dividend of 49 cps was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

The economy and market conditions appear to have stabilised. However, the current strength of the Rand and its overall volatility continue to be risk factors going forward. Volumes in BMG appear to have bottomed out, but there are no clear signs of a recovery yet. Trading is volatile and patchy. However the macro global environment suggests that demand for BMG's customers` products should increase in the short to medium term. This should, in turn, result in increased demand for BMG's products and services.



In the CED, agricultural machinery conditions are expected to be challenging. Confidence in the agricultural sector is declining due to low grain prices and relatively high input costs. Conditions in the construction equipment market are still depressed and management does not expect this to improve in the next 12 to 18 months. The division has taken steps to protect itself by cutting costs and it is carefully managing working capital. The acquisition of Criterion Equipment (Pty) Ltd is not expected to have any material effect on the group in the second half of the year, but it has helped to spread the construction equipment section?s overheads and should start making a contribution in the next financial year.



The board remains confident of the continued success of the group and will continue to look for opportunities to increase its product range and penetrate new markets.

(Official Notice)
Invicta is pleased to announce that it has concluded an agreement with the current shareholders of Criterion Equipment (Pty) Ltd ("Criterion") for the acquisition of 100% of Criterion with effect from 1 June 2009. Criterion is the importer and distributor of both the TCM forklift range as well as Jeung Heinrich warehousing equipment. The acquisition is seen as a complimentary acquisition to the existing capital equipment operations in Invicta. Invicta intends to maintain the Criterion distribution network and brand in the market, and lever off its existing capital equipment distribution and workshop facilities where appropriate and synergistic. TCM forklifts are imported from Japan and have been established in the market as a quality product well suited for the many applications in the South African economy, while Jeung Heinrich, is the premium brand in specialised warehousing equipment. Jeung Heinrich is manufactured in Europe. The transaction falls below the threshold of the categorization of transactions which require disclosure in terms of the JSE Ltd's Listings Requirements. Nevertheless, due to the strategic nature and future positive impact of this acquisition, the directors of Invicta deemed it appropriate to inform shareholders of the transaction. The purchase price is not material to the Invicta group.

(C)
Group turnover grew by 35.6% to exceed R4.5 billion for the first time. Organic growth in turnover was 25.7%, with acquisitions contributing 9.9%. Improved margins and tight cost controls resulted in operating profits increasing by 38.0% to R497 million, yielding an operating margin of 11.0%, marginally higher than the prior year.



Dividend

The board has declared a cash dividend of 85cps.



Prospects

With the global financial crisis taking a firm hold locally towards the end of 2008, Invicta started picking up head winds. In spite thereof, due to good management and business models, the group managed to close the year on a high note. Looking ahead, however, management expect trading to be challenging. International mineral and agricultural commodity prices are well below their peaks of last year, which is likely to keep pressure on the customers of BMG and the group's agricultural machinery divisions. Although there has been a slight improvement in commodity prices recently, the recovery of the South African economy is likely to be gradual over the next 12 to 18 months. Volumes in the construction equipment industry are, on average, well down on last year and are not expected to recover in the short term. Group revenue so far in the new financial year has been marginally below that of last year. In light of the aforegoing and the prevailing uncertainty in markets, management has adopted a cautious approach to the coming year. A prudent approach to the paying of a final dividend has been adopted, with the annual dividend being maintained, resulting in a dividend cover for the year of 3.14 times. It is anticipated that when markets return to normal the dividend cover will return to 2.5 times. Current market conditions are expected to give rise to acquisition opportunities and the group has ensured that it has access to sufficient funding to enable it to take advantage of these opportunities as and when they arise, so as to ensure the continued growth of the group. In view of the uncertain market conditions, no view can be expressed as to the earnings for the current year. Management is however confident that the group is well positioned to weather the storm.

Dividends

Prospects

Provided demand for mineral and agricultural resources remains buoyant, overall prospects for the group for the coming year look good. The group expects the high interest rate and weak rand environment to result in good value-for-money acquisition opportunities arising. Invicta, with its good cash resources and strong balance sheet, will be well positioned to take advantage of such opportunities.

Turnover decreased by 4.46% to R938 million (R981.9 million) while headline earnings came down to 73cps (89cps). An interim dividend of 27cps has been declared.



Prospects

The restructuring of group companies is almost complete and will pave the way to the group finalising a BEE deal, which will include a staff empowerment scheme. Appropriate announcements will be made when the process has been completed. Trading conditions in the agricultural machinery market are expected to continue to be difficult in the next six months, but the other divisions anticipate better trading conditions which should result in improved performance. In addition to the group restructure and pending BEE transaction, the group is currently involved in negotiations for acquisitions of a strategic nature, aimed at strengthening the group's current product offering. Further announcements in this regard will be made when appropriate.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders of Bearing Man and Invicta are advised that the offer by Invicta to the minority shareholders of Bearing Man to acquire their shares (`the offer`), has been accepted by Bearing Man shareholders in respect of 98.91% of Bearing Man`s issued share capital (exclusive of the Bearing Man shares already held by Invicta). As the offer is unconditional and has been accepted by Bearing Man shareholders in respect of more than nine-tenths of the Bearing Man shares that were subject to the offer, Invicta intends to invoke the provisions of section 440K(1)(a) of the Companies Act, 1973 (Act 61 of 1973), as amended, (`the Companies Act`) to compulsorily acquire all of the remaining Bearing Man shares. As a consequence, Bearing Man will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Invicta. The Bearing Man shares will be suspended at the commencement of business on Wednesday, 20 July 2005 and will subsequently be terminated at the expiry of the six week period for the compulsory acquisition of the remaining shares. The listing will be terminated with effect from commencement of business on Friday, 2 September 2005. A surrender circular, incorporating the requisite notice in terms of section 440K of the Companies Act, will be mailed to shareholders on Tuesday, 19 July 2005. Bearing Man shareholders who have not accepted the offer and who do not act on this circular by indicating their election to receive either the cash offer or the share offer or a combination thereof, will be deemed to have elected to receive the cash offer of R7.50 per Bearing Man share by default, when Invicta invokes the provision of section 440K.

Historically, the Invicta group included a listed subsidiary, being Bearing Man Ltd, in which Invicta held 60.65% of the ordinary shares. This structure resulted in inefficiencies with regard to the operations of the two businesses. In addition, the Invicta group has not to date, effected a transaction with a BEE party in respect of the empowerment of an equity interest in the Invicta group. The Invicta board is of the opinion that the restructuring and subsequent empowerment of the Invicta group is key to ensuring the continued sustainability of the group and stimulating the future growth of its business operations in South Africa.



The Invicta board therefore proposed a buy-out of the minorities in Bearing Man as set out in the circular to Invicta shareholders dated 3 June 2005, which buy-out was approved by Invicta shareholders at the general meeting held on 20 June 2005. Subsequent to such buy-out being implemented, the Invicta board proposes that the operations of the Invicta group should be restructured and that a BEE transaction should be implemented in respect of such restructured operations. Such sales will be effected as sales of going concerns in terms the Companies Act, at the collective market value of the businesses, which value will be determined with reference to the higher of Invicta`s volume weighted average price over the 30 trading days prior to the date of signature of the agreements pertaining to the restructuring or the value of Invicta at R17.00 per Invicta share, as offered to the Bearing Man minority shareholders in terms of the share offer.
