Revenue lowered to R1.1 billion (2016: R1.2 billon). Profit from operating activities decreased to R452.9 million (2016: R567.4 million). Profit for the period was R419.4 million (2016: R512.7 million). In addition, headline earnings per share were lower at 488.9 cents per share (2016; 585.1 cents per share).



Company prospects

Despite the difficult macroeconomic and operating environment, we are clear about our 2017 priorities and hence the issues that we need to tackle to achieve our strategy and grow this business sustainably.



Our revenues are variable and largely driven by activity on the various markets that we operate. For this reason, the Board makes no projections regarding the Group's financial performance. Although we have experienced a tough start to the year we remain focused on our cost optimisation initiatives, whilst making the necessary capital investments in areas that will enhance the Group's sustainability.
07-Jul-2017
(Official Notice)
As part of its ongoing cost optimisations, the JSE announced a number of initiatives that will result in annualised cost savings of approximately R170 million which will be fully realised from 2019 onwards. These initiatives include -

*A reduction in the JSE?s technology operating expenditure by a minimum of R70 million over a two-year period; and

*A consultation process in terms of section 189A of the Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995 ? this process could result in the retrenchment of approximately 60 people (14% of headcount) from the JSE?s current full-time staff complement during 2017. These savings will reflect from the 2018 financial year.



The JSE has already achieved approximately R65 million in annualised savings to date through a combination of removing vacancies and reducing discretionary expenditure.



Change to JSE board of directors

The JSE advises that Leanne Parsons, alternate executive director responsible for JSE Information Services, has indicated that she will step down from the JSE Executive Committee and from the board effective 31 December 2017. Ms Parsons will remain at the JSE for 2018 and will continue to drive the delivery of the Integrated Trading and Clearing Project (?ITaC?).



The JSE will utilise this considerable lead time to enable a smooth succession for Ms Parsons? executive responsibilities and to ensure that our strategic ITaC project remains on track.

Prospects

Despite the difficult economic environment in which, for the first time, we expect to see local licensed exchange competitors, we are clear about our 2017 priorities and hence the issues that we need to tackle to achieve our strategy and grow this business sustainably. The JSE is a largely fixed-cost business. Therefore we will maintain our focus on costs, while making the necessary capital investments in areas that will enhance the Group's sustainability and diversify revenue. Our revenues are variable and largely driven by activity on the various markets that we operate. For this reason, the Board makes no projections regarding the Group's financial performance in 2017.

Business Day reported that the JSE will be implementing three changes at the end of September to enhance the trading in shares. The JSE's hidden order functionality, Block X, will be replaced by three new elements: a central order book cross, a pegged hidden order functionality, and an end-of-day volume auction.

JSE head of capital markets Donna Nemer commented: "Currently, the hidden order functionality makes it difficult for orders to find each other and match trades, because price parameters are not included in the order". The central order book cross will enable investors to match trades within the visible best bid and offer spread ? or best buy and sell price of a stock ? without interference.

Business Day reported that the JSE has rejected more than 40% of listed companies? annual financial statements and returned them for correction since the introduction of new accounting rules and the bourse?s adoption of a risk-based approach to reviews. It involved 41.6% of listed companies the JSE reviewed over the period to June last year. This was an increase o of 27.4% compared to the previous year?s non-compliance.



Corporate governance expert Mervyn King said there was no cause for alarm about the high level of noncompliance. "The financial statements are recognised today as only being part of a company?s corporate reporting and usually representing only about 30% of the market capitalisation of companies," he said. "Hence the international movement to integrated reporting."



Companies struggled with international financial reporting standards on disclosure of interest in other entities and the fair-value measurements, which were present in 46% of cases in which the JSE compelled companies to restate financial statements. Very few of the corrections were made public immediately. An immediate announcement was required only when the information was price sensitive.

(Official Notice)
JSE is currently finalising its results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2015 (the "period") which results are expected to be released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE on 25 February 2016.



Stakeholders are advised that the basic earnings per share ("EPS") of the Group for the period are expected to be between 35% (1 002.24 cents per share) and 45% (1 076.48 cents per share) higher than the previous year?s 742.4 cents per share. Headline EPS is expected to be between 35% (992.25 cents per share) and 45% (1 065.75 cents per share) higher than the previous year?s 735.0 cents per share.



This is principally attributable to double-digit revenue growth across all operating divisions driven by significantly higher market activity which was well handled by the increasingly robust technology in which we continue to invest.

Revenue for the year rose to R1.8 billion (R1.6 billion). Profit from operating activities increased to R703.8 million (R577.7 million). Profit for the year jumped to R634.3 million (R506.6 million). In addition, headline earnings per share shot up to 735.0 cents per share (644.6 cents per share).



Dividend

The Board has decided to declare both an ordinary and a special dividend for the year ended December 2014, at 400 cents and 80 cents per ordinary share respectively.



Prospects

The JSE is a largely fixed-cost business. Costs are tightly controlled and the necessary capital investments are made in areas that will enhance the Group's sustainability. Our revenues are variable and largely driven by activity on the various markets that we operate. For this reason, the Board makes no projections regarding the Group's financial performance in 2015.



The JSE are, however, clear about the companies 2015 priorities and hence the issues that we need to tackle in order to achieve our strategy. This sets us up for a demanding number of years of investment and delivery, which, while impacting our income statement in the short term, are necessary to ensure our long-term sustainability.

The integrity of financial information is a critical element of a well functioning market. The JSE therefore has a process whereby it pro-actively reviews Annual Financial Statements for compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards (?IFRS?). The objective of the review process is therefore to contribute towards the production of quality financial reporting of entities listed on the JSE.



The JSE announced that for the fourth year it has published a report providing an overview of the proactive monitoring activities of the past year. This report is available on the JSE website (https://www.jse.co.za/current-companies/issuer-regulation/accounting-matters.)



This report is intended to be of interest to all market participants, including Issuers, investors, auditors, other regulators and the general public. It sets out the important points which came to our attention during the 2014 year with a view to assisting Issuers when they prepare their next set of accounts. By presenting the points in an uncomplicated manner we also hope that this will help demystify IFRS for the public.

The JSE is currently finalising its results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2014 (the "period") which results are expected to be released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE exchange on 5 March 2015.



Stakeholders are advised that the basic earnings per share ("EPS") of the Group for the period is expected to be between 20% (710.52 cents per share) and 30% (769.73 cents per share) higher than the previous year?s 592.1 cents per share. Headline EPS is expected to be between 10% (709.06 cents per share) and 20% (773.52 cents per share) higher than the previous year's 644.6 cents per share.



This is principally attributable to:

Public censure imposed by the JSE on Exchange Sponsors



The JSE Ltd. ("JSE") wishes to advise the following concerning certain findings by the JSE in respect of Exchange Sponsors (2008) (Pty) Ltd. ("Exchange Sponsors") in its capacity as a designated advisor to an issuer:

*The JSE has found Exchange Sponsors to be in breach of:

-paragraph 2.8(h) of the JSE Listings Requirements ("LR") for failing to discharge its responsibilities with due care and skill when it became aware of the notice of motion for liquidation proceedings against the issuer;

-paragraph 2.8(j) of the LR for failing to advise the JSE immediately when they became aware or had reason to suspect that the issuer had or may have breached the LR.



*The JSE has decided to impose this public censure on Exchange Sponsors in relation to the above-mentioned breaches of the LR.

*The JSE's decision is based on the fact that due to the price sensitive nature of the proposed liquidation of the issuer and the seriousness thereof, Exchange Sponsors had a duty to engage with the JSE as soon as it became aware thereof.

Commentary

JSE Ltd. ("JSE" or "Group") delivered a pleasing performance in the six months to 30 June 2014, demonstrating the strength of a diversified revenue base as strong results from our Issuer Regulation and service divisions countered mixed results and lower traded values in some of our trading divisions. Group operating revenue rose by 9% to R869 million compared with 2013's strong first half (H1 2013: R794 million). The JSE is also making good progress with a range of strategic initiatives that will strengthen and diversify our business further, including the collocation offering, which was launched during H1 2014.

(Official Notice)
The JSE has determined that changes should be effected to the text of Special Resolution one and Special Resolution two, as previously circulated to shareholders as part of the original AGM Notice. In the interests of clarity and ease of understanding, the JSE is withdrawing the existing Special Resolutions one and two, and hereby gives notice of a new Special Resolution seven. Special Resolution seven seeks to restrict the scope of the general authority to be granted by shareholders in respect of financial assistance to those commercial and financing activities that are undertaken in the normal course of business and to exclude from its scope the general provision of financial assistance to directors and officers. This new Special Resolution seven does not affect in any way the separate and specific authority to be granted by shareholders in respect of financial assistance for the JSE's existing Long-term Incentive Scheme 2010 ("LTIS 2010").

Shareholders are also advised that the annual integrated report incorporating the reports as described above together with the notice of the annual general meeting is available on the JSE website, http://www.jsereporting.co.za/ar2013/.



Notice of the annual general meeting

Notice is hereby given that the ninth annual general meeting of JSE shareholders will be held at 13:30 on Thursday, 8 May 2014 (as stipulated in the SENS announcement) at One Exchange Square, Gwen Lane, Sandton to transact the business as stated in the annual general meeting notice forming part of the annual financial statements

Revenue for the year rose to R1.6 billion (R1.4 billion). Profit from operating activities increased to R577.7 million (R405.6 million). Profit for the year jumped to R506.6 million (R302.1 million). In addition, headline earnings per share shot up to 644.6 cents per share (473.2 cents per share).



Declaration of ordinary and special dividend

There is increased global attention on the capitalisation of key market infrastructures such as exchanges and clearing houses. In this context, the board believes that it is appropriately capitalised, given the nature of the risks faced by the group. Although the board has decided not to retain additional capital at this time, the group may, in due course, require a further capital injection to meet regulatory capital requirements.



The board has decided to declare both an ordinary and a special dividend for the year ended December 2013 at 350 cents (250) and 50 cents per ordinary share, respectively.



Prospects

The JSE is a largely fixed cost business. Costs are tightly controlled and the necessary capital investments are made in areas that will enhance the group's sustainability. The group's revenues are variable and largely driven by activity on the various markets the group operates. For this reason, the board makes no projections regarding the group's financial performance in 2014.



However, the JSE team is excited by the opportunities ahead as the group continues to make good progress towards delivering on its 2017 strategic vision. The board is confident that, as these efforts advance, the JSE will increasingly be positioned as a growing, formidable and sustainable business.

(Official Notice)
The JSE is currently finalising its results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2013 (the "period") which results are expected to be released on SENS on 11 March 2014. Stakeholders are advised that the basic earnings per share ("EPS") of the JSE Group ("Group") for the period are expected to be between 63% and 73% higher than the previous year's 351.8 cents per share. Headline earnings per share ("HEPS") are expected to be between 31% and 41% higher than the previous year's 473.2 cents per share. The EPS and HEPS for the group for the period have been impacted by:

*increased group operating revenues as a result of:

**increased operating revenue growth from most products and services;

**tightly controlled operating costs,

*an impairment charge of R48m. This impairment relates to the remaining carrying value of the surveillance component of the Systems Replacement Programme which impairment was triggered by a technical analysis indicating that the software component is no longer compatible with the corresponding new architecture; and

*rebates given to Equity members of R84m.



Further detail will be provided in our 2013 results announcement.

Revenue for the interim period grew to R793.6 million (R682.8 million) and profit before net finance income jumped to R344.7 million (R190.9 million). Profit for the period more than doubled to R292.7 million (R100.7 million). In addition, headline earnings per share rose to 333.2cps (245.5cps).



Dividend

The board has not declared an interim dividend, in line with its previously stated preference for a single annual dividend based on a full year's results. No change to the JSE's current dividend policy is contemplated, which is to maintain dividend cover between 2.5x and 1.5x after-tax profits.



Outlook

The JSE is a largely fixed cost business. Costs are tightly controlled while the necessary capital investments are made in areas that will enhance the group's sustainability. The group's revenues are variable and largely driven by activity on the various markets the group operates. For this reason, the board makes no projections regarding the group's performance in H2 2013.



The board is excited by the opportunities ahead as the group continues to make good progress towards delivering on its 2017 strategic objectives. The board is confident that as these deliveries succeed, the JSE will increasingly be positioned as a growing, formidable and sustainable business.

Revenue jumped to R1.38 billion (R1.37 billion) and profit from operating activities rose to R405.6 million (R380.1 million). Profit for the year tumbled to R302.1 million (R341.8 million). Headline earnings per share fell to 473.2c per ordinary share (562.4c per ordinary share).



Dividend

The board has decided to maintain the dividend for the year ended December 2012 at 250c per ordinary share.



Prospects

Stakeholders of the JSE will appreciate that revenue projections for the group are not feasible, given the dependence on trading volumes in all the markets.



Although the JSE retain tight control of what is essentially a fixed cost base, expenses are expected to increase from 2013 as a result of depreciation charges starting once the group's major systems have been implemented. There are also a number of possible initiatives in the pipeline that may require capex spend during 2013 such as co-location, T+3 and OTC clearing. As the group charts this new strategic path, the group will enhance its agility, cost effectiveness, capital efficiency and innovativeness. The JSE team is extremely excited about this journey.

Revenue rose to R682.8 million (R667.9 million). Net attributable profit for the period more than halved to R100.7 million (R253.8 million). In addition, headline earnings per share fell to 245.5c (288.9cps).



Outlook

The critical interdependencies between the exchange, the financial services community and its broader stakeholder group have become ever more apparent. That is why the JSE is focused on resilience and sustainability.



The JSE is not able to make revenue projections for the group, given the dependence on trading volumes in all the markets. In stressed market conditions, the exchange is retaining its strong focus on controlling costs. Where the JSE is investing, it is in ensuring that the current business is sustainable and that the right level of resources are deployed in those areas of the business that management thinks are critical to long term revenue growth.

(Official Notice)
Stakeholders were advised that headline earnings per share (HEPS) of the group for the half year ended 30 June 2012 (the period) are expected to be between 10% and 20% lower than the HEPS of 288.9 cents per share for the half year ended 30 June 2011 (the comparative period). Earnings per share (EPS) are expected to be between 56% and 66% lower than the 299.0 cents per share of the comparative period. HEPS and EPS for the group for the period have been impacted by factors (before tax), including:

*the impact of impairing the Market Services Solution (MSS) and its associated software within the Systems Replacement Project (SRP) following the technical recommendation earlier this year that it would need to be rewritten. This amounted to R72.6 million. Deferred tax on the accumulated impairments amounting to R40.5 million and the non-deductibility of the impairment (R20.3 million) increased the taxation charge. The tax treatment of the software development costs is currently being investigated and may impact the taxation charge going forward;

*the decision not to complete MSS which resulted in the deployment of staff from capital projects to operations. These salary costs were expensed rather than capitalised (2012: approximate capitalisation R23.9 million; 2011: approximate capitalisation R36.1 million);

*early retirement payments made to senior staff of R6.2 million (2011:R nil);

*the writing back of approximately R7.3m in bonuses withheld in 2011 pending a decision on the way forward on SRP and now forfeited as a result of the decision to impair MSS (2011: R nil). As a result, executives during 2011 will receive no part of the retained bonus.

Financial outlook

Shareholders will have observed that the trading volumes in some of our markets during first quarter 2012 were down. This may lead to lower revenue levels for the company but the board is unable to give guidance on this given the variable nature of trading volumes.
09-May-2012
(Official Notice)
In the JSE annual report for the year ended December 2011 ("AR 2011"), shareholders were advised that the long-delayed System Replacement Programme ("SRP") was being reviewed and that a final decision in respect of SRP would be communicated to shareholders as soon as possible. The JSE is now able to issue an interim update in this regard, namely that the JSE has completed a technical analysis of SRP. The analysis indicates that it is technically desirable to completely rewrite the Market Services Solution (MSS) component of SRP, which is one of the five components of SRP. The JSE are currently considering our options following the technical recommendations, both in relation to MSS and any impact on the other components of SRP.



The carrying value in respect of SRP as a whole as at 31 December 2011 as disclosed in the AR 2011 as part of the software under development figure, was approximately R158 million. As a result of the technical analysis, we anticipate an impairment to SRP of at least R60m, which is the carrying value of the MSS component, to be reflected in the interim financial results for the period ending June 2012. The total extent of any impairments will be determined following our decision on the options available to us. We will revert to stakeholders in this regard as soon as we are in a position to do so.

Business Report stated that the JSE finally pulled the plug on its African Board on 2 April 2012, and said it was collapsing it into the main board and AltX. The African Board was launched at the beginning of 2009. Siobhan Cleary, the director of strategy and public policy at the JSE, said the exchange's existing African offering included 12 African companies. But in reality, the JSE's Africa Board attracted only two high quality listings: Trustco from Namibia and Wilderness Safaris from Botswana. The JSE said it was evolving its strategy for growing its investment offering from the rest of the continent as the appetite for African investments continued to grow.

(Media Comment)
Business Day highlighted that JSE Ltd., the company that operates the local stock exchange, reported a nearly 30% increase in diluted headline earnings per share to 555.9c for the year ended December. The JSE said the growth was achieved despite a year marked by volatile markets and a slow global economic climate damping the appetite for new listings. The JSE warned in its results statement that the upsurge in the debate on policy issues such as nationalisation and transaction taxes had increased the climate of uncertainty and a lack of a resolution would hurt the nature and extent of investment in SA.

(C)
Revenue for the year ended 31 December was higher at R1.4 billion (2010: R1.3 billion). Total comprehensive income for the year fell to R319.9 million (2010: R375.8 million), while headline earnings per share jumped to 562.4cps (2010: 436.1cps).



Dividend

The directors of the JSE advise shareholders that a final ordinary dividend of 250cps was declared.
06-Mar-2012
(Official Notice)
Stakeholders of the JSE are advised that, as a result of strong revenue performance and tight operating cost control for the year ended 31 December 2011, headline earnings per share are expected to be between 23% and 34% higher than the previous year's 436.1 cents per share. Earnings per share are expected to be between 6% and 12% lower than the previous year's 445.5 cents per share as a result of, amongst other items:

* capitalisation of staff costs and consultants' fees relating to an increased allocation of resources to new and existing capital projects amounting to approximately R141 million (2010: R65 million). This had the impact of reducing the "personnel expenses"; and

* the impairment of approximately R223 million (2010: R33 million) to the software under development for the Systems Replacement Project. This was recognised after careful and detailed examination of the results of the software testing performed in the second half of 2011 and of the expected effort required to complete and implement this project. This increased the "other expenses" but has no cash impact.
16-Aug-2011
(C)
Group revenue climbed to R667.9 million (R623.3 million). Net attributable profit increased to R253.8 million (R207.6 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew to 288.9cps (233.3cps).



Dividend

The board has declared a special dividend amounting to R200 million gross of taxes. This amounts to a net dividend of 210cps.



Outlook

Revenue projections are not possible in the stock exchange industry, given the dependence on trading volumes in all the markets. Expenses are expected to increase from 2012 as a result of depreciation charges starting once the Group`s major systems have been implemented next year. The JSE continues to focus on growing all of its markets, diversifying revenue streams and implementing strategic goals.
02-Aug-2011
(Official Notice)
Stakeholders were advised that the earnings per share ("EPS") of the group for the half year ended 30 June 2011 ("the period") are expected to be between 17% and 27% higher than the 244.1 cents per share of the half year ended 30 June 2010 ("the comparative period"). Headline earnings per share ("HEPS") are expected to be between 19% and 29% higher than the HEPS of 233.3 cents per share for the comparative period. The EPS and HEPS for the group for the period have been impacted by a number of factors. These include (before tax):

*The impact of refining the manner in which the group capitalises the costs attributable to the staff working on capital projects, further compounded by additional capital projects, resulting in an amount of R66 million being capitalised. In the comparative period, this amounted to R36 million.

*An amount of R7.9 million was expensed as a result of certain options awarded in terms of the Black Shareholder Retention Scheme having been forfeited by the original holders, and having been awarded to the JSE Empowerment Fund Trust in their place.

*The final payment of the First Tranche of the Long Term Incentive Scheme 2006 vested at the end of 2010; consequently no further costs relating to this element of the scheme were expensed in the period. In the comparative period, this amounted to R7 million.
08-Jun-2011
(Official Notice)
Further to the announcement on 16 May 2011, the JSE reminded all qualifying black shareholders who were awarded options in three tranches in 2006, 2007 and 2008 as part of the 2006 Black Shareholder Retention Scheme, which scheme closed on 28 March 2006, that those options become exercisable during any business day in June 2011. This is subject to the following conditions being met:

*purchased JSE Ltd shares by no later than 28 March 2006;

*uninterrupted holding of the original qualifying shareholding until 1 June 2011;

*acceptance of the options;

*confirm "blackness" in the case of corporate or any other juristic entities for the full period; and

*payment of the required amount for the allocated options by no later than 17h00 on 30 June 2011.

In terms of JSE Listings Requirement 16.23 note that the options expire on 30 June 2011. The scheme rules further state that failure by any qualifying black shareholder to meet any of the above conditions will cause the allocated options to automatically lapse with no further claim on the JSE. The JSE will continuously remind JSE BEE shareholders about their right to exercise their JSE BEE options. If you have any queries please contact the JSE broker where your JSE Ltd shares are held.

Outlook

While much has changed at the JSE during the past decade, there is significant work to be done given the winds of change sweeping the financial services industry worldwide. At time of writing, the JSE's markets continue to emulate 2010's performance with similar transaction levels being maintained. This does not imply that the trends will necessarily continue throughout 2011. Indications are that 2011 will be a tough year in financial markets. By delivering on the projects outlined during this review, and by staying close to all clients, the JSE will deliver the best possible performance to the benefit of its users and investors.

Revenue for the financial year ended 31 December 2009 climbed to R1 115 million (2008: R1 072 million). Total comprehensive income attributable to owners of the company increased to R396 million (2008: R337 million). Headline earnings per share stayed relatively constant at 456.1 cps (2008: 456.9 cps).



Dividend

The directors of JSE proposed to declare ordinary dividend of 192 cps to be approved. This equates to 2.1 times cover and is consistent with the stated dividend policy to pay between 1.5 and 2.5 cover.



Prospects

The JSE remains committed to delivering value to issuers and investors. The JSE's focus is on continual improvement and consistent work to sustain their business model, with depth and breadth. The board is optimistic that this should be achieved through the strategic objectives discussed above, combined with the strength of JSE regulation and the quality of the JSE's service. Since a significant portion of revenue is dependent on the level of trades on the exchange, the JSE is not able to predict future profits. The exchange industry is changing fast to anticipate and satisfy client demands. Demutualised exchanges serve not only members as used to be the case but all market participants. Apart from its day to day operational focus in the areas mentioned above, the JSE is focused on retaining its competitive edge and delivering growth to shareholders in JSE Ltd.

Business Report noted that the capital markets regulator of Mauritius was unsure if a pending deal between the Mauritian stock market and the JSE should go ahead. The JSE was waiting for regulatory approval to buy a stake in the island's exchange as part of a plan to expand its operations in the region. However, CEO Russell Loubser, commented that he would not invest in other African stock exchanges at the moment.

Revenue increased to R544.5 million (R508.8 million) for the six months to 30 June 2009. Net attributable profit for the period rose to R183.5 million (R172.6 million). In addition, headline earnings per share grew to 216.1cps (199cps).



Prospects

As a significant portion of revenue is dependent on the level of trades on the Exchange, the JSE is not able to predict future profits. There is no guarantee that first half trading volumes will be sustained throughout 2009. The JSE will continue to focus on increasing liquidity and improving market competitiveness. In the equity derivatives market, the exchange will work with clients who previously traded off-exchange but who now want to trade on-exchange to manage risk. Moreover, new products planned for the second half in cash and derivatives markets should provide trading volume in the medium term. In September, rand-denominated contracts in platinum, gold and oil will be launched under licence from CBOT. The transaction with BESA having been concluded, the JSE will also focus on making real progress with growing the combined interest rate markets and delivering the intended benefits of the merger. The JSE is also continually striving to grow the exchange's other markets and revenue streams.

"Further to the publication of various media reports regarding the strategic partnership between the Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM) and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), the SEM would like to inform its stakeholders and the public of the following:

*The SEM submitted on 16th January 2009 an application to the Financial Services Commission (FSC) seeking its approval of the proposed SEM/JSE strategic partnership. The application contained documents which explained, inter-alia, the rationale of the strategic partnership, the list of deliverables to be implemented within a 3 year period to scale up the activities of the SEM and further internationalise the SEM and capital markets in Mauritius, the joint medium-term strategy in Africa, and the corporate governance structure to be set up in the context of this partnership to ensure smooth decision-making.

*The decision to enter into a strategic partnership with the JSE has essentially been driven by the potential positive impact that such a relationship could have on the future of capital markets in Mauritius and the positioning of Mauritius as an international financial services center.

*The SEM has had extensive discussions with the FSC and has provided the latter with all information and explanations required.

*The SEM has been informed by the FSC, in a letter dated 20 March 2009, that the FSC is unable to approve the SEM/JSE partnership under the terms as proposed in the documents submitted and other representations made to it. *The SEM is still in the process of engaging with the FSC to consider ways and means of addressing the concerns of the FSC to the satisfaction of all the parties concerned.

The stakeholders of the SEM and the public will be kept informed of any further development on this matter." The JSE will likewise inform the market of any further developments.

Revenue climbed 22% to R1 072 million for the year (R877 million). Basic earnings per share increased from 321.3c to 439.7c. The directors of the JSE proposed an ordinary dividend of 192cps (130cps).



Prospects

A significant portion of revenue being dependent on the level of trades on the Exchange, the JSE is not able to predict future profits. The cash equities market started 2009 slightly up on the same period in 2008. The impact of the global economic circumstances will be mitigated at least partially by new products and improved access to trading services. In early 2009, equity derivatives volumes eased, affected by factors including reluctance to trade in derivatives in small cap companies by certain clients and the reduced circumstances of other clients. However, the exchange has seen a rise in business from clients who previously traded off- exchange but who now want to trade on-exchange to manage risk. The JSE will try to provide services that attract business that was previously done over the counter. Moreover, new products planned for 2009, including a broader range of derivative products on foreign equities, should provide trading volume in the medium term. The JSE will also continue to investigate the possibility of other strategic acquisitions in its industry and in this regard are in discussions regarding the acquisition of a strategic stake in the Stock Exchange of Mauritius. These discussions have not been finalised. Should they be, the impact on the JSE's financial results will not be material. The JSE is also growing the exchange's other markets and revenue streams. It is important to note that there is no guarantee that 2008 trading volumes will be sustained throughout 2009. The JSE remains committed to delivering value to issuers and investors. Its focus is on continual improvement and consistent work to build a sustainable business model, with depth and breadth. Management is optimistic that this should be achieved through the strategic objectives discussed above, combined with the strength of JSE regulation and the quality of its service.

Revenue climbed 24% to R509 million during the period (six months to June 2007: R411 million). During the first half of 2008, personnel expenses fell 4% mainly due to the impact of a fall in JSE`s share price. This was attributable to the valuation of the cash-settled Long Term Incentive Scheme, which is designed to attract, retain and incentivise the JSE`s senior management over the long term. The impact of the "mark to market" of the participatory interests issued has resulted in a total charge to income of R0.4 million. In the comparative period this charge amounted to R47 million. During January 2008 the JSE`s exposure to the second tranche of participation interests was hedged through cash-settled European call options with a resultant fair value charge to the income statement in the interim period of R18 million. Profit for the period was reported at R172.6m (2007: R40.5m) and basic earnings per share at 202.8c (2007: 47.7c). Net asset value per share amounted to 1 413.8c (2007: 1132.9c).



Dividends

No dividend was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

Due to a significant portion of revenue being dependent on the level of trades on the Exchange, the JSE is not able to predict future profits. The JSE did not feel a noticeable impact from the credit crunch affecting various other markets and stock exchanges during the first half of 2008. Volumes have continued to climb on the JSE while they have stagnated in certain world markets. An element of this is attributable to the fact that the equities market of the JSE has a large commodity component. It is important to note that this does not guarantee that these volumes will be sustained in the second half of 2008. It should also be noted that a large number of staff vacancies existed during the first part of 2008 and it is anticipated that many of these vacancies will be filled in the second half of the year.

Stakeholders are advised that the earnings per share of the JSE Ltd for the six months ended 30 June 2008 are expected to be between 319% and 329% higher than the comparative period's 47.7cps and headline earnings per share are expected to be between 409% and 419% higher than the 38.7cps of the comparative period. The earnings and headline earnings per share for the group for the six months ended 30 June 2008 have been impacted by a number of factors. These include:

*the robust world equities market performance resulting in an increase in trades on the JSE and hence in revenue of between 19% and 29% for the period;

*the final tranche of options issued to qualifying black shareholders in terms of the Black Shareholder Retention Scheme, amounting to a cost of approximately R38 million. The actual current impact of this on cash flow is zero. There will be a small positive impact on cash flow when the options are exercised in 2011;

*the impact of the "mark to market" of the participation interests issued under the first tranche of the Employee Scheme approved by JSE shareholders. This has resulted in a write-back to income in the current period of approximately R13 million but the continuing accrual for this tranche amounted to a charge of R12 million. The net effect of the first tranche is thus expected to be a write back of approximately R1 million;

*the impact of the issue of approximately 1 million participation interests under the second tranche of the Employee Scheme approved by the JSE shareholders and the acquisition of call options to economically hedge this liability over the life of the tranche. This resulted in a net charge of approximately R20 million; and

*in the comparative period, the final issue of shares at par value to the JSE Empowerment Fund (JEF), amounted to a cost of approximately R30 million in that period.

Stakeholders are advised that the information provided in this trading statement has not been reviewed and/or reported on by the auditors.

Group revenue from operations increased by 37% to R877.4 million (R640.4 million) while the increase in operating costs (which exclude share-based costs) was contained below inflation, at 6%. Despite the cost of the broad-based BEE initiative and the Long Term Incentive Scheme, the group has achieved after tax profits for the year of R273.3 million (R141.1 million), an increase over the previous year of 94%. Headline earnings on a per share basis rose to 292.1cps (164.8cps).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 130cps has been declared.



Prospects

The start of 2008 has been volatile in many markets worldwide. South Africa, an emerging market, hasn't escaped this. Despite this, the early months of the year have been good for the JSE. High volumes have been traded during the period. The JSE has had promising indications for the listings pipeline. Plans to launch new products and to improve service levels for investors and issuers have continued apace. During 2008, a significant focus will be on the ease and flexibility of the JSE's trading services. This focus includes ensuring that the exchange is able to fulfil the evolving requirements of algorithmic traders and investors' more sophisticated requirements. However a thorough review of the requirements of these stakeholders, now underway, may prompt changes including a revised pricing structure for equity trades on the exchange. Clearly, the objective of this exercise would be to increase the JSE's liquidity.



The focus on ease and flexibility of trading also includes a continuation of an investigation into all obstacles hampering the reduction in the equity settlement period from T+5 to T+3. The exchange will not move to T+3 before it is convinced that the clearing and settlement of trades will be as flawless as is its current record. Shareholders are reminded that the JSE's earnings are impacted, amongst other things, by the volumes of transactions executed on the JSE markets. The JSE does not control these volumes and has a largely fixed cost base. At the same time, the JSE will start to depreciate the capital expenditure on elements of its IT transformation as they are implemented and will need to expense the costs of the remaining tranche of the broad-based BEE initiative as well as the Employee Long Term Incentive Scheme during 2008. All these expenses will impact the group's profit in 2008.

Shareholders are advised that the consolidated earnings and headline earnings per share of the JSE for the six-month period ended 30 June 2006 will be impacted by a number of events, including those approved by the shareholders at the general meeting held on 9 May 2006.

These include:

* exceptional market activity;

* a no-claim bonus of R26 million received by the JSE Guarantee Fund Trust from one of its insurance underwriters;

* the impact of the issue of the first tranche of JSE Shares in terms of the BBBEE initiative, giving rise to the JSE Empowerment Fund Trust (JEF), amounting to approximately R18 million;

* the impact of the issue of the first tranche of JSE Shares in terms of the BBBEE initiative for the Black Shareholder Retention Scheme, amounting to approximately R12 million;

* the issue of the first portion of participation interests in terms of the Employee Scheme, amounting to approximately R4 million for the six month period;

* the subdivision of JSE Shares on a 10 for 1 share split, effective 5 June 2006;

* the dividend of 13.6c per JSE Share for the 2005 financial year, which will also be paid from the profit for the current period; and

* the recognition of the JSE as a tax paying entity with effect from 1 July 2005.

Taking into account the aggregated effect of the above, it is expected that the JSE's earnings per share and headline earnings per share will increase by between 90% and 110% compared to the comparable period last year.
