Shareholders are referred to the voluntary announcement released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE Ltd. on 24 October 2016, regarding the sale of Genrec to Nisela Capital. This transaction was not concluded and new potential purchasers were engaged.



The Group announces that Genrec has been sold, subject to certain conditions precedent, to the Southern Palace Group of Companies, a black-owned and managed South African industrial group. Certain assets and liabilities are excluded from the transaction and will remain with the Group. The assets and liabilities included in the transaction, were sold at book value. This transaction is not classified as a categorised transaction, as per section 9 of the JSE Listings Requirements.



Murray - Roberts has over the past few years changed its strategic direction, which resulted in a significant change to its portfolio of businesses, and Genrec was the last remaining manufacturing business to be sold. Murray - Roberts believes that this transaction supports the Group?s long-term strategy and that it is in the best interest of Genrec, as the business will now have greater opportunity to unlock order book potential in the public sector.

Murray - Roberts refers to the SENS announcement released by Aveng Ltd. (?Aveng?) on Wednesday, 20 September 2017 regarding the Dispute Adjudication Board (?DAB?) award against Genrec.



Murray - Roberts hereby advises that whilst the DAB award is against Genrec (a division of Murray - Roberts Ltd.), in terms of a prior arbitration award in favour of Murray - Roberts, the contractor, Mitsubishi-Hitachi Power Systems Africa (Pty) Ltd.

Revenue from continuing operations lowered to R21.4 billion (R26.1 billion). Profit before interest and taxation tumbled to R487 million (R1.3 billion). Profit attributable to owners dived to R48 million (R753 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations dipped to 74 cents per share (185 cents per share).



Dividend

The board resolved to maintain a gross annual dividend of 45 cents per ordinary share for FY2017.



Company prospects

The Group's strategy and business model is now clearly defined and the focus is on optimising business performance and growing shareholder value. The Group's strong financial position and improving financial performance expectations will support its organic and acquisitive growth plans.



The Group's low order book is reflective of current market conditions, but of a high quality given the prudent approach we apply to mitigate project risk at tendering stage. While there is some cause for apprehension, near orders are looking robust and the medium-term project pipeline is strong, specifically in both the Underground Mining and the Oil - Gas businesses.



Notwithstanding persistently trying market conditions and the possibility for potential future losses from the Group's remaining non-core businesses, the business in the Middle East and Genrec, we believe an improvement in the Group's financial performance can be expected in the next financial year. The natural resources market sector is cyclical and leading researchers are of the opinion that the metals and minerals cycle has already turned - and our assessment is that the Group is well positioned for the upcycle.

Shareholders are referred to the announcement published on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE Ltd.

Murray - Roberts announced the following appointments as independent Non-Executive Directors, with effect from 23 August 2017:

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the board of directors of Murray - Roberts (the ?Board?) has approved a share repurchase programme of up to R250 million through Murray - Roberts Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the ?Share Repurchase?). The cash position of the Company and its subsidiaries is sufficiently robust to undertake the share repurchase.



The Share Repurchase is being undertaken as part of Murray - Roberts? broader capital allocation strategy and specifically in light of price performance in the Company?s shares, which in the board?s view, continues to undervalue the Company and its prospects. As previously guided to the market, FY2018 (1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018) is expected to be the start of a new earnings growth period, supported by analyst and third party research citing the current turn in the metals and minerals cycle.



The share repurchase will comprise a programme to purchase the Company?s ordinary shares including during its closed period commencing 1 July 2017. The share repurchase will extend until discontinued by the Board or to the date when the R250 million limit is exhausted.



The shares repurchased as a result of the share repurchase will not be cancelled and will be retained as treasury shares. Those shares repurchased and held in treasury will not have any voting rights.



During the Company?s closed period, which will commence on 1 July 2017 and end on the date of the release of the Company?s 2017 financial year end results, currently expected to be on or about 22 August 2017, the share repurchase will be an irrevocable, non-discretionary programme managed by an independent third party, which makes its trading decisions in relation to the Company?s securities independently of, and uninfluenced by, the Company (the ?Closed Period Share Repurchase?).



The closed period share repurchase will be effected within certain pre-set parameters and in accordance with both the Company?s general authority to repurchase shares granted by special resolution of the Company?s shareholders passed at the Company?s annual general meeting held on 3 November 2016 and the JSE Listings Requirements.

Murray - Roberts announced that RUC Cementation Mining Contractors (Australia- based) (?RUC Cementation Mining?) has secured a significant three-year (with option for extensions) contract for underground mine development and production, at Dacian Gold Ltd.?s (?Dacian Gold?) new Mt. Morgans Gold Project near Laverton in Western Australia. RUC Cementation Mining Contractors is a wholly owned subsidiary of the M-R Hld Group, offering turnkey underground solutions to the mining sector throughout Australasia.



This award represents a major milestone in RUC Cementation Mining?s transformation from mid- level to being recognised as a top-tier mining contractor. The contract was awarded after an extensive competitive bid process.



Dacian Gold recently released a feasibility study for the project and stated that it will be spending an estimated AUD220 million on its Mt Morgan Project, which is located approximately 750km northeast of Perth in Western Australia. The mining lease area is situated in the Laverton gold district which is known to contain some 30 million ounces of gold, making it the second highest endowed gold district in Western Australia.



This is a significant award for RUC Cementation Mining and a material award for the Group?s global Underground Mining platform. The outlook for metals and minerals is steadily improving and it is expected that the Underground Mining platform will in the short term continue to benefit from new investment in the global mining sector.

Revenue from continuing operations lowered to R10.7 billion (R13 billion). Profit before interest and taxation decreased to R252 million (R579 million). Loss attributable to owners came to R60 million (profit of R376 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations fell to 28cps (96cps).



Dividend update

In line with the approved dividend policy communicated at the release of the Group?s FY2015 results on 26 August 2015, the Board will only consider paying an annual dividend.



Prospects

The global markets in which the Group operates have been depressed for the last few years and the Board expects difficult trading conditions to continue in the short to medium term. As shared in updates to the market in November and December 2016, the current financial year is turning out to be even more challenging than the past year. The natural resources market sectors are cyclical and the Group is well positioned for the upcycle. The outlook for metals and minerals is improving and it is expected that the Underground Mining platform will in the short term benefit from new investment in the mining sector. A recovery in the Oil - Gas platform will take longer as the LNG market is expected to remain well supplied until 2022. The Group?s businesses are respected for their capabilities and services and all platforms continue to focus on operational excellence, cost reduction and efficiency in order to trade through this difficult period. The information on which this prospects statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by the Group?s external auditors.

Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on the Stock Exchange News Service (?SENS?) on Friday, 17 February 2017, regarding the unusually high trading volumes observed last week in Murray - Roberts? ordinary shares. Shareholders are further referred to the announcement released on SENS regarding the acquisition by ATM Holding GmbH, Munich (?ATM?), a company registered in accordance with the laws of Germany, of a material beneficial interest in Murray - Roberts.



ATM is a wholly owned subsidiary of ATON GmbH (?ATON?). ATON is a private investment holding company headquartered in Germany, with a diverse portfolio of investments in the mining, engineering, aviation and health technology sectors. ATON acquired a 4.49% shareholding between June and September 2015 and now holds a beneficial interest of approximately 25.5% of the total issued ordinary share capital of the Company. Other than the Section 122(3)(b) notification, the Company confirms that it has not received any other correspondence or communication from ATON.



The underground mining contractor J.S. Redpath Holding, Inc (?Redpath?) is a wholly owned subsidiary of ATON. Murray - Roberts and ATON held exploratory discussions between September 2015 and April 2016, regarding a potential combination of Redpath with Murray - Roberts? Underground Mining business platform. Whilst there was merit in the potential combination, the parties could not reach agreement on the proposed transaction structure and relative value. Accordingly, discussions ceased in May 2016.



The Company will engage with ATON regarding its investment in Murray - Roberts.

Shareholders are advised that FTSE has approved the request by the company to transfer its listing of securities maintained on the JSE List from the Construction - Materials sector, sub- sector ? 2357 Heavy Construction to the General Industrials sector, sub-sector 2727 Diversified Industrial on the grounds that the company has announced the disposal of its South African Infrastructure - Building businesses, which was classified as non-core. This transaction should be completed within the second half of the current financial year. The Diversified Industrial sub-sector most closely describes the nature of the company?s current businesses.



Background and rationale

Post the merger of Murray - Stewart and Roberts Construction in 1967, the securities of the merged entity, known as Murray - Roberts Limited, listed in the Construction sector of the JSE. At that time, heavy construction was the primary business of the company. As announced in previous market communications, the company has taken a long term view in selecting the global natural resources market sector to apply its expertise and focus as a multinational specialist engineering and construction group.



Over the past decade, the company has been growing its revenue and earnings from its engineering and construction business in three sectors, namely oil and gas (EPC and commissioning and brownfields, and infrastructure - marine), underground mining (specialist engineering, shaft construction/tunnelling, mine development, raise drilling and contract mining) and power and water (project development to EPC, with a focus on traditional mechanical, electrical and instrumentation construction services).



Effective date

The change in sector will be effective from Monday, 20 March 2017.

Stakeholders are referred to the Business Update published on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE (?SENS?) on 3 November 2016, quoting an expected decline in operational earnings for FY2017, when compared to FY2016, mainly due to persistent low commodity and energy prices, with a major impact expected in the Oil - Gas platform.



Accordingly, shareholders of the Company are advised that Murray - Roberts expects basic earnings per share (?EPS?) and basic headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) for the six months ended 31 December 2016 to be more than 20% lower than the basic EPS of 94 cents and the basic HEPS of 89 cents reported for the previous comparative reporting period. This will equate to an expected reduction of at least 18.8 cents basic EPS and 17.8 cents basic HEPS for the six months ended 31 December 2016. Once a reasonable degree of certainty has been established on the financial results for this period, a further trading statement will be released.

Revenue for the year from continuing operations was higher at R26.1 billion (R24.0 billion). Profit before interest and taxation rose to R1.3 billion (R1.1 billion). Profit for the year attributable to owners decreased to R753 million (R881 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations lowered to 181 cents per share (200 cents per share).



Dividend

The Board has declared a gross annual dividend of 45 cents (50 cents) per ordinary share in respect of the year ended 30 June 2016. The dividend will be subject to the dividend tax rate of 15%, which will result in a net dividend of 38.25 cents per share to those shareholders who are not exempt from paying dividend tax. The dividend has been declared from income reserves.



Prospects

It is expected that difficult macro-economic conditions will persist. The Group expects a decline in operational earnings for FY2017, when compared to FY2016, mainly due to the lack of opportunity for the Oil - Gas platform, as the full impact of the oil price collapse and global oversupply is felt in this market.



All platforms will continue to focus on cost reduction and operational excellence to preserve margins. The Group will continue to implement its New Strategic Future plan. The natural resource market sectors are cyclical and the Group will trade through this difficult period whilst implementation of this plan will position the Group well for the upturn.

Gautrain arbitration update

Shareholders are referred to the previous statements released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE Ltd. (?SENS?), regarding the Gautrain arbitration proceedings between the Bombela Concession Company (?BCC?) and the Gauteng Provincial Government (?Province?).



Sandton Station Cavern claim

The Bombela Civil Joint Venture (?BCJV?), which was responsible for the design and construction of the entire Gautrain system, lodged a claim through BCC, which operates the Gautrain system under a concession agreement, against Province, related to the cost of construction of the Gautrain Sandton Station Cavern. Murray - Roberts (45%), Bouygues (45%) and SPG (10%) are the shareholders of BCJV in the percentages indicated.



The Gautrain Sandton Station Cavern Claim, relating to the cost of construction, on its merits was ruled in favour of BCC in October 2013. On 2 March 2016, the arbitration tribunal announced the provisional quantum award of R354 million which was subject to a final determination of the amount (refer to SENS dated 4 March 2016). The final award to BCJV has been now been determined at R624 million (ex VAT). Province has instituted High Court proceedings to review the quantum award. BCC are opposing the application for review.



Cantiliever bridge arbitration award

BCJV is claiming from Province for additional costs incurred following a design change to the bridges over John Vorster and Jean Avenue in Centurion (?Cantilever bridges?). The Cantilever Bridges claim, on its merits, was ruled in favour of BCJV on 4 May 2016, with quantum to be determined in October 2016.



Remaining Gauteng Project claims

Details of the remaining claims were disclosed in the group?s interim results announcement released on SENS on 24 February 2016. These claims will be diligently pursued and stakeholders will be kept informed as to their progress.

Revenue from continuing operations lowered to R15.3 billion (R15.9 billion). Profit before interest, depreciation and amortisation rose to R870 million (R768 million). Profit attributable to owners increased to R376 million (R359 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations grew to 90cps (81cps).



Dividend update

As communicated at the release of the Group?s full year results on 26 August 2015, the Board considered and approved a new dividend policy. In terms of this policy, the Board will consider paying an annual dividend of between three and four times earnings cover.



Prospects statement

Despite the FY2016 H1 improvement on the prior comparable period, considering the weak global economy and ongoing difficult trading conditions, the Group expects a decline in operational earnings for FY2016 when compared to FY2015. Historically, the second half of the year yielded a better result than the first half, but it is unlikely to be the case in the current financial year.



The Group is continuing to implement its New Strategic Future plan. The natural resource market sectors are cyclical and implementation of this plan will position the Group well for the upturn.

Basic EPS: 89; -1%-10% ; 88-98

Diluted EPS: 87; -1%-10% ; 86-96



The expected improvement in the company?s FY2016 H1 is primarily as a result of a strong performance in the Underground Mining platform and profits from forex movements. Despite the FY2016 H1 improvement, stakeholders are referred to the Business Update released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE Limited (?SENS?) on 5 November 2015, where the company stated that considering the persisting weak global economy and difficult trading conditions, the group expects a decline in earnings for financial year 2016, when compared to financial year 2015.

Revenue from continuing operations lowered to R30.6 billion (R36.0 billion). Profit before interest, depreciation and amortisation also decreased to R1.7 billion (R2.2 billion). Profit attributable to owners slumped to R881 million (R1.3 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations contracted to 206 cents per share (208 cents per share).



Dividend

The board has considered and approved a new dividend policy. The dividend payment is subject to an annual review as distributions may be influenced by global market conditions, possible merger and acquisition activity and/or relative balance sheet strength. In terms of this policy the board will consider paying an annual dividend, of between three and four times earnings cover.



The board has declared a gross annual dividend of 50 cents per ordinary share in respect of the year ended 30 June 2015 and will be subject to the dividend tax rate of 15%, which will result in a net dividend of 42.5 cents per share to those shareholders who are not exempt from paying dividend tax.



Prospects

The Group expects a more challenging FY2016 and the declining order book over the past two years reflects the reality of a subdued global economy and weak demand for commodities, coupled with low investment in fixed capital formation in South Africa. Consequently, earnings for FY2016 will come under pressure.



The natural resources market sectors are cyclical and despite more difficult trading conditions expected in the financial year ahead, the Group is well placed to realise its vision for 2020.



Murray - Roberts balance sheet strength will enable us to extend the success of our bolt-on acquisition strategy, as we grow our capability to provide services in all segments of the project value chain.

Murray - Roberts, on a voluntary basis, advises shareholders of the company (?shareholders?) that the total headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) for continuing operations, will be less than 5% lower than the prior comparable period, as illustrated in the table below:



FY2014 Actual (cents); FY2015 Expected range (%) and FY2015 Expected range (cents)

Continuing operations

*Basic HEPS - 208; 0%-(5)%; 208-198

*Diluted HEPS - 205; 0%-(5)%; 205-195



Shareholders are also advised that, as disclosed in accordance with paragraph 3.4(b) of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, the total earnings per share (?EPS?) for continuing and discontinued operations, is likely to vary by at least 20% from the prior comparable period, as illustrated in the table below:

*Diluted EPS - 305; (25)%-(35)%; 198-229



The expected decrease in EPS from continuing and discontinued operations is primarily due to a profit (trading and disposal) of R423 million on discontinued operations included in the FY2014 results and not repeated in FY2015 results.

As reported in M-R?s reviewed interim results announcement of 25 February 2015, the Gautrain Delay - Disruption Claim legal process against the Gauteng Provincial Government is progressing. Due to the complexity of this arbitration, the initial hearings were focussed on addressing the legal interpretation of various clauses in the Gautrain concession agreement.



M-R announced that the rulings are largely in favour of the Bombela Concession Company, which is pursuing the claims on behalf of Bombela Civil Joint Venture (?BCJV?), of which M-R has a 45% shareholding, Bouygues (45%) and SPG (10%). The legal basis of the claim has now firmly been established. It is important to note however that the merits and quantum hearings will only be heard as from the first quarter of calendar year 2016 with financial conclusion only likely the following year.



The significant rulings from these hearings relate to:

*The right to proceed with a claim for additional costs incurred on two cantilever bridges which has now been confirmed; and

*The late handover of land, which was determined to be a project event giving rise to an entitlement to an extension of time and compensation for additional costs incurred.



These rulings reaffirms M-R?s accounting position taken in previous financial years, when part of the claim was recognised as uncertified revenue. The Company will keep the market updated as to further developments on any of its current arbitrations.

Prospects

Market conditions in the sectors within which Murray - Roberts operates, in the short to medium term, present growth challenges. The recent unexpected and significant drop in oil and commodity prices, created market uncertainty, which in the short to medium term will impact investment decisions of oil - gas and resources companies.



Implementation of the Group?s strategic plan progresses. It is uncertain if the anticipated short term reduction in the Oil - Gas platform?s earnings (resulting from the low oil price) will be offset by earnings growth in other platforms.



Opportunities to increase the Group?s exposure to the more sustainable engineering and asset support/maintenance segments of the project value chain will continue to be pursued.

(Official Notice)
The Group has concluded an agreement with four South African banks to restructure its South African interest-bearing short term overdraft facilities. The previous secured overdraft facilities of R2.2 billion were negotiated in 2011 and the significant improvement in the Group?s cash position has necessitated a restructuring of these facilities. As previously reported, the Group reflected a net cash position of R1.8 billion at 30 June 2014 with no utilisation of the South African overdraft facilities. The South African balance sheet reflected an ungeared net cash position at 30 June 2014, and therefore no longer requires the same level of facilities. The new reduced facilities totalling R1.1 billion are provided on an unsecured, bilateral basis by each of the participating banks.



Notice is thus given that, pursuant to the special resolution passed at the annual general meeting of the company held on 6 November 2014 authorising the company to provide direct or indirect financial assistance to related or inter-related parties, the board of directors (?the board?) has adopted a resolution on 8 December 2014 as contemplated by section 45 of the Companies Act, 71 of 2008 (?the Companies Act?).



The board resolution authorises the company to guarantee the banking facilities offered to the company and its subsidiaries by the facility banks for the aggregate amount of R1.1 billion, which constitutes the company giving "financial assistance" within the meaning of section 45 of the Companies Act.



In accordance with section 45 of the Companies Act, the board is satisfied and acknowledges that:

* immediately after providing such financial assistance, Murray - Roberts will satisfy the solvency and liquidity test, and

* the terms under which such financial assistance is to be given are fair and reasonable to Murray - Roberts.

An arbitration award has been made in the dispute between the Gauteng Provincial Government (Province) and the Bombela Concession Company (Bombela), relating to the interpretation of the specification for the amount of ground water contractually allowed to drain into the Gautrain tunnel over a specified period of time. This has been a complex arbitration process and this complexity is reflected in the Arbitration Tribunal?s (the Tribunal) award. Overall, the Tribunal supported Province?s interpretation of the water ingress specification.



The Tribunal ruled that, in certain parts of the Gautrain tunnel, the non-compliance with specification could be settled through financial compensation and in other parts of the Gautrain tunnel, additional works (as yet unspecified) will be required in order to meet this specification. Any additional works will be carried out by the Bombela Civil Joint Venture (BCJV), of which Murray - Roberts has a 45% shareholding, together with Bouygues (45%) and SPG (10%).



The way forward will now be agreed between Bombela, BCJV and the Province. It is important to emphasise that the Tribunal?s award specifically records that the functionality and safe operation of the system is not threatened by the inflow of water into the tunnel. Therefore all Gautrain services will continue to operate normally pending decisions regarding the extent and nature of possible additional work, as well as other commercial arrangements to be agreed between Bombela and the Province.

Revenue increased 16% to R35.4 billion (2011: R30.5 billion) whilst loss from continuing operations shrunk to R511 million (2011: R982 million). As a result, attributable loss to equity holders reduced to R736 million (R1.7 billion). Furthermore, headline loss per share from continuing operations was lower at 211cps (2011: loss per share of 357cps).



Prospects

The group's focus on growth is motivated by the objective to enhance shareholder value through a return to profitability as soon as practically possible. The growth strategy envisages aligning the group's portfolio of businesses selectively with market segments and geographies that present sustainable growth potential, simultaneously expanding its offshore revenue base. The company's strategy for expanding into the rest of Africa is a cautious one, which is on track and will be accelerated during the coming year.



Fixed investment in South African infrastructure is sorely needed and the various platforms are positioned to engage in such opportunities. Any growth during the next year which could result from a turnaround in the South African construction economy, which the group does not anticipate at present, would come as a welcome boost.

The stake was sold for USD1.47cps, compared to M-R's last-traded price of 7c in a "special bargain."

Shareholders of M-R ("shareholders") are referred to the announcement released on SENS on Monday, 23 April 2012 and published in the South African press on Tuesday, 24 April 2012 ("results announcement") setting out the results of the renounceable rights offer (the "rights offer") of new M-R ordinary shares ("rights offer shares"). Also forming part of the announcement was the number of applications for excess shares from holders of rights in addition to their entitlements ("excess applications").



Following the close of business on Monday, 23 April 2012, the company was informed by its transfer secretaries that a Central Securities Depositary Participant ("CSDP") had overstated by 35 888 889 the number of applications for excess shares it had submitted which formed part of the total excess applications (the "error"). Shareholders were previously advised in the results announcement that the company received 207 050 032 excess applications. The correct number of excess applications received was for 171 161 143 rights offer shares, which is equivalent to 151.68% of the total number of rights offer shares offered to shareholders in the rights offer. The results of the primary subscription and excess available for subscription remain unaffected by the error.

Due to rounding principles as set out in the rights offer circular, 112 843 499 rights offer shares were issued and listed due to rounding up of fractional entitlements.



The rights offer closed on Friday, 20 April 2012 and the board of directors of M-R advised that the results of the rights offer are as follows:

* Shareholders and their renouncees subscribed for 110 468 292 rights offer shares, equivalent to 97.90% of the total number of rights offer shares; and

* applications were also received for 207 050 032 rights offer shares, equivalent to 183.48% of the total rights offer shares, from holders of rights wishing to acquire rights offer shares in addition to their rights entitlements ("excess applications").



Shareholders are advised that the 2 375 207 rights offer shares in respect of excess applications will be allocated in an equitable manner as set out in the circular posted to shareholders on Monday, 26 March 2012 which sets out the full terms of the rights offer.

(Official Notice)
The strong global demand for commodities continues although the world economy remains vulnerable. The South African construction economy is depressed but there are early signs of a slow recovery in the local market and the medium term outlook is positive given the major and growing infrastructural backlog in South Africa. The South African Government's R810 billion infrastructure investment programme supports the long term growth prospects for the construction and engineering sector, although the timing of this programme is uncertain.



Prospects

The group's order book remains strong at R56 billion, marginally up from the R55 billion as reported at the June 2011 year-end. It is the group's objective to return to profitability as soon as practicably possible and further guidance will be provided with the publication of the half-year results on or about 29 February 2012.

A loss for the period attributable to ordinary equity holders amounted to R1.7 billion (profit of R1.1 billion), while headline loss per share from continued operations was 396cps (profit of 316cps).



Dividend

The board has resolved not to declare dividends until the group's liquidity position has improved.



Prospects

The group's order book, which now includes Hall Longmore and UCW, at 30 June 2011 was R55 billion (2010: R44 billion). The operating margin contained in the order book is within the group's strategic range of 5.0% to 7.5%. The group's strength lies in its diversity, in terms of the breadth of the services and products offered across the engineering and construction value chain, as well as market spread and exposure to different economic cycles. The Group expects a return to an acceptable level of profitability in the year ahead and all operating platforms other than Construction Africa are forecast to experience improved trading conditions. The level of this profitability will depend on economic conditions, order book development and conversion, particularly in South Africa and reduction of working capital. Murray - Roberts embarks on the 2012 financial year with new leadership, a renewed focus on risk management, health and safety, a sound order book and a determination to grow the business while shrinking debt.

(Official Notice)
M-R confirmed that it filed a fast track application to the Competition Commission ("Commission") by the deadline date of 15 April 2011. This is a process established by the Commission that requires firms operating in the construction sector to list projects in specified market sectors where the firm believes, or has evidence, it may have transgressed any of the provisions of the Competition Act ("act") and where such transgressions are not covered by leniency under the Corporate Leniency Provision ("CLP") of the Act.



The group has conducted further and extensive internal legal and forensic investigations in terms of the specific provisions of the fast track process. This has included the interrogation of both current and former executives of the group, including those who had signed declarations of compliance to the provisions of the act. A large number of project tenders have been subjected to audit, going back a number of years. The group advised that a relatively small number of projects have been identified, primarily in a designated sector in which Concor Ltd ("Concor") is active, where the act may have been transgressed through the unauthorised actions of senior executives and for which no CLP applications have previously been lodged. The group has now lodged CLP applications for these projects, but may well be exposed to the application of a penalty in terms of the rules of the fast track process.



The unlawful actions by these individuals extend from an indeterminate period prior to the acquisition of Concor by M-Rs in the 2007 financial year and seem to have ceased at some time subsequent to Concor being incorporated into the group. It is possible, however, that the fast track process may identify further projects where Concor and/or M-R have transgressed the provisions of the act. M-R, under the direction of its board and chief executive, has led the exposure of collusive practices in the construction industry over a number of years, is committed to eradicating any collusive behaviour from the group and will continue its work with the Commission to achieve a competitive construction industry in its broadest definition.

Henry was appointed a director of Murray - Roberts Ltd and Murray - Roberts International Ltd during 2007 and will be appointed as an executive director of M-R from 1 April 2011. His appointment follows an extensive domestic and international search for candidates.

For continuing operations, revenue for the six months to 31 December 2010 has increased by 2.5% to R15.8 billion (2009: R15.4 billion). The group has recorded an attributable loss of R636 million (2009: R576 million profit) in the six months to 31 December 2010, including exceptional items of R795 million and a loss on discontinued operations of R326 million primarily relating to the rationalisation of the group's reinforcing steel operations and operating losses in Johnson Arabia. The headline loss per share from continuing operations amounted to 125cps (December 2009: earnings of 213cps).



Outlook

The second half of the financial year is projected to show an increase in revenues in Middle East and Cementation with no growth projected for the South African Construction and Construction Products clusters and group Investments. The primary opportunity for the Group in the second half-year is to support the work in BCJV to secure its payment rights on the Gautrain Project. The group is hopeful that delays in certification within the Power Program will reverse. It is unlikely that the final account arbitration on Dubai International Airport will be completed before year-end. While there is still weakness and margin pressure in the construction markets of Middle East and South Africa, the group expects the budget to reinforce government's commitment to the acceleration of its infrastructure program. The group has invested over some time in the development of its strategy to re-engage the growing potential of new investment opportunity that will flow from the development of resources and infrastructure markets in the Rest of Africa.

According to Business Day, while M-R shareholders await the outcome of he board's review of the reversal of previously recognised "uncertain revenue", there is growing speculation that the review process might result in the clawback of previously paid executive remuneration and also in some high level executive resignations. Roy Anderson, M-R's chairman, confirmed yesterday that he was heading up a board committee that was undertaking a "full review" of the circumstances behind the reversal of previously recognised revenues. Andersen would not comment on speculation about clawing back remuneration or the possibility of any resignations. Given that the group's profits had been overstated in the financials of June 2010, then to the extend that executives were rewarded on the basis of the reported results, then there was justification for a clawback.

Shareholders are advised that there are circumstances relating to the Group, the full impact and details of which are currently being determined as noted below, that may have a material effect on the price of the Group's securities. Accordingly, shareholders are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the Group`s securities until publication of the Group's unaudited interim half-year financial results on or about 23 February 2011.



The Group is critically reviewing its progress in the resolution of outstanding final accounts in the Middle East and claims resolution in South Africa, which remain slow and arduous. Trading conditions in both of the above markets have become tougher in recent months and cash collection relative to costs being incurred on public sector projects remains a concern. As a consequence, an impairment charge on previously recognised uncertified revenues is expected to be taken for the half-year to 31 December 2010. Management is working with its clients and partners on the resolution of these matters and the Group is unable at this time to give a precise indication of the extent of the impairment. It is expected, however, that diluted headline earnings per share and earnings per share will reflect a loss for the period.



Excluding any impairment charge, diluted headline earnings per share and earnings per share for continuing operations for the half-year to 31 December 2010, are expected to be down between 35% and 45% and between 30% and 40%, respectively compared to the previous comparable period. The above information is provided in terms of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited. The financial information on which the trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by the Group's external auditors.

Annual general meeting

Prospects

The project opportunity pipeline, which records opportunities of interest to the group and that have already been filtered through the opportunity management system, stood at R68 billion at 30 June 2010 (2009: R71 billion). The group's tender success ratio has declined in the year as market conditions have tightened, with South Africa showing little sign of recovery after the global financial crisis and 2010 FIFA World Cup.



The order book stood at about R42 billion (2009: R40 billion) with decidedly more activity in the group's international markets. The group expects good growth in the year ahead, coming off the low base caused by the Gautrain charge to the statement of financial performance. The level of this growth will depend on order book development, particularly in South Africa; settlement of major project final accounts; reduction of working capital; and progress with the Eskom Power Program.

FinWeek noted that M-R has dropped by more than 40% since September 2009 as excitement about South Africa's construction industry began waning. The drop in the group's share price took place before the Soccer World Cup and the company announced that its earnings are expected to be slashed by unpaid contracts amounting to R1.25 billion. However, despite unpaid bills being endemic to the construction industry and not translating into any further important share price movements, M-R has already started selling off assets and properties worth R1 billion to help the group over the short term.

Business Day reported that M-R is finding it hard to pull out of the economic slump, warning that it expected diluted EPS and diluted HEPS for the year to June to be 55% lower than the previous year. The group finds itself in a quandary after the global economic crisis took a toll on its order book and working capital as well as the performance of some operations for the six months to December 2009. In addition to the company's challenges is the most recent available information on the estimated cost to completion of the Gautrain project indicating an increase of about R390 million over the position on which the group's half year accounts were prepared.
23 Jun 2010 15:06:32
(Official Notice)
The board of directors of Murray - Roberts ("board") met on 23 June 2010 to consider inter alia a likely financial outcome for the current year to 30 June 2010. The latest available information on the estimated cost to completion of the Gautrain project infrastructure works indicates an increase of about R390 million over the position on which the group halfyear accounts to 31 December 2009 were prepared. This includes an estimate of additional delay mitigation and the remaining costs required to deliver significant completion of the system on schedule and the full system shortly thereafter.



The board recognises the scale of the claims relative to the scope of the Gautrain project and it is of the opinion that the level of claims recognised in the group accounts at 31 December 2009 was prudent. The board has resolved to take the group's share of any increased costs as a charge to the income statement in the current financial year. This is likely to result in diluted headline earnings per share and diluted earnings per share for the year ending 30 June 2010 being 50% to 55% lower than the previous comparable period. The operating margin will remain within the group's strategic range of 5% to 7.5%. Bombela Civils joint venture, in which Murray - Roberts has a 45% share, has invested significant working capital to mitigate the impact of delayed land handover, higher than anticipated input cost inflation and adverse geological conditions. The mitigation measures taken by Bombela to date and a Herculean coordinated effort by all parties and people involved in the project over the past few months, allowed Bombela Concession Company ("BCC"), to successfully commission Gautrain operations on 8 June 2010, 19 days ahead of schedule in time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa TM. BCC is 66% South African owned by Murray - Roberts, empowerment partner SPG and local investors.



The group order book remains stable at about R40 billion with a solid long-term component in Southern Africa. The group's international markets continue to offer increased levels of opportunity while there is a shortage of new workflow into the group's South African markets. Shareholders are reminded that Murray - Roberts will publish its preliminary results for the financial year to 30 June 2010 on or about Wednesday 25 August 2010.

Construction and engineering group Murray - Roberts 'categorically' denied Competition Commission claims of widespread collusion in the construction industry. This comes after the commission on Tuesday said it was investigating Grinaker, Stefanutti, Group Five, WBHO, Concor, Liviero, Giuricich, Hochtief, Dura, Nishimatsu, Esorfranki, VNA, Pilings, Rodio, Diabor, Gauteng Piling, Fairbrother, Geomechanics, Murray - Roberts, Aveng and other firms, including joint ventures, in the industry. The commission said collusive practices tended to distort competition and increase prices. Murray - Roberts said yesterday it had lodged a formal objection with the Department of Trade - Industry's director general, Tshediso Matona, about the matter.



In particular, the commission said it's investigations revealed the existence of collusive practices such as price fixing in the form of fixing margins for tenders and compensating the losing bidder, and the allocation of customers, projects and tenders through the use of scorecards.
02 Sep 2009 16:59:28
(Official Notice)
The Competition Commission published a statement through SENS on 1September 2009 as part of a broader media campaign that listed M-R as an industry participant amongst selected others, in alleged wide-spread and prevalent collusion in the construction industry; categorised joint ventures as collusive arrangements; implied price manipulation on a national scale to the extent that society is denied full, timely and affordable access to housing and essential infrastructure; all resulting in improper cost inflation such as to burden the state and economy. In a subsequent business radio interview, the deputy commissioner of the Competition Commission stated categorically that "The confessions we've got thus far are indicating clearly that once again this is an industry norm." M-R categorically denies these allegations and statements of wide-spread and prevalent collusion and has lodged a formal objection with the Director General of the Department of Trade and Industry in this matter. The Director General has acknowledged the formal objection and has raised the matter with the Competition Commissioner. The media campaign also alleges the existence of a steel producers` cartel where "there has been a long-standing culture of cooperation amongst the steel mills regarding the prices to be charged, and discounts to be offered, for their steel products."



Cape Town Iron - Steel Works (Pty) Ltd (CISCO) is a subsidiary of M-R and denies any knowledge of such a cartel. The forensic investigations undertaken by M-R consequent to the so-called "dawn raids" by the Competition Commission, indicate that if anything, CISCO is a victim of predatory pricing by the larger inland steel mills. M-R does not deny that in isolated instances, individuals in the group have acted fraudulently in what can be construed as collusive behaviour. This is the independent actions of individuals for personal gain. The group has forensically investigated all its operations in the context of Competition Law and where such isolated irregularities have been found, it has engaged with and placed leniency markers with the Competition Commission.

Revenue increased from R26.6 billion to R33.7 billion in 2009.Earnings after taxation rose to R2.3 billion (2008:R1.9 billion). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders increased to R2.0 billion (R1.7 billion). Headline earnings on a per share basis grew to 683cps (562cps).



Dividends per share

A final dividend of 133 cps was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

Murray - Roberts is a resilient organisation with a strong and experienced executive leadership team with deep institutional skills and commitment within its people. The group is confident that the current slowdown in fixed capital formation is temporary and that markets remain on course for a long-term growth trajectory.



The project opportunity pipeline, which records opportunities of interest to the group and that have already been filtered through the opportunity management system, stood at R71 billion at 30 June 2009 (2008: R96 billion). A total of R56 billion of projects in the pipeline were terminated in the financial year.



In addition, the group is preparing itself for a South African nuclear strategy, to engage proactively in the resolution of South Africa's human settlement challenge and seek appropriate opportunities for the development of economic infrastructure in the Rest of Africa. Further acquisition opportunities are being considered and the group's international operations have plans to expand their markets in Middle East, South America and Asia. While the group does expect growth in the year ahead, if not in all companies and markets then from the new markets and opportunities it has committed to engage, volatility of the SA rand against the US Dollar and other international currencies may impact the translation of the group's 40% international earnings.



The 2009 annual report will be published before end-September and includes more detailed information covering the performance and operations of the group. A business update will be given at the annual general meeting to be held on Wednesday 21 October 2009. It is expected that more information concerning prospects in the market and the ongoing impact of the global economic crisis will be available at that time.

Construction group Murray - Roberts (M-R) dismissed allegations it was involved in corrupt awarding of tenders for 2010 Soccer World Cup stadiums, and said a government probe had found no pricing irregularities. The group was responding to reports to reports that it was among construction firms the Competition Commission was investigating for allocation of tenders after claims of substantial cost escalations. Local construction firms have proved more resilient in the face of the global crisis than many peers overseas thanks to building projects and infrastructure development related to the World Cup.

While recognising an expressed public concern at an evident history of corruption in the global construction industry, often in concert with the authorities for whom the industry works, it is incumbent on Murray - Roberts as South Africa's construction industry leader, to place some perspective on public allegations of corrupt practices associated with the stadium projects for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup, which allegations are categorically refuted insofar as they refer to Murray - Roberts. In compliance with its legal obligation, Murray - Roberts took an industry lead before any public concern was expressed on possible corruption in the construction industry. The group initiated internal audits across its various operations and commenced a program of communication and training to assist employees in understanding competition law and its implications on the group. Where any evidence of possible collusion is uncovered, disclosure is made and as promised publicly by the group, full cooperation given to the authorities. Murray - Roberts has been involved only in construction of the Greenpoint Stadium, as a joint venture partner given the size, complexity and timeframe required of the project. The joint venture is directly responsible for less than 40% of the total cost of the project. The remainder has been under the direct control of the City of Cape Town and includes professional team fees, client costs, selected subcontractors, provisional sums and prime cost Items determined in advance by the professional team. The project has been substantially redesigned and construction has been accelerated to overcome delays in award and the consequence of the redesign. The original tender pricing for all 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup stadia was investigated by the National Intelligence Agency at the request of Government and as far as Murray - Roberts is aware, no concerns relating to tender irregularities or pricing were raised. In fact, evidence given by Murray - Roberts to this enquiry showed underestimation of the capital costs in the original proposals supporting the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup bid. Murray - Roberts reiterates its commitment to work with the competition authorities on concerns relating to the construction industry.

The board has taken a prudent view of the likely results for the group for the year to 30 June 2009. Further to previous guidance provided, it is anticipated that diluted headline earnings per share and diluted earnings per share for the year ending 30 June 2009 will increase by 15% to 20% compared with the previous comparable period.

Shareholders are advised that the Al Habtoor Murray - Roberts Takenaka Joint Venture (HMRT) has reached mutual agreement with Dubai Civil Aviation to withdraw from its contract to construct Dubai International Airport Concourse 3. HMRT was awarded the contract in December 2008 and has been working with DCA to finalise acceptable contract terms since then. The parties have concluded that a mutually acceptable contract is not currently possible. The group's 40% share of this contract was worth about R5,0 billion in revenues over the next three year period. Limited work has been undertaken on the project to date and the Parties will work together to reach a final account. HMRT successfully delivered the Concourse 2 and Terminal 3 project which was opened in 2008.



This announcement has not been reviewed or reported on by the group's auditors. While withdrawal from this project is not expected to have a material impact on the group's results for the financial year to 30 June 2009, the directors meet at end-June 2009 to consider and approve the group's third quarter financial results and review market conditions and budget assessments for the year to 30 June 2009 and should it prove necessary, will issue a business update thereafter.

Shareholders are advised that the group has received formal notification that the joint venture contract to construct the Tameer Towers project in Abu Dhabi has been terminated, subject to contract.

The group has previously cautioned on volatility in the Middle East market as a result of the global financial crisis and in particular, the alliance nature of the contracting arrangement on the Tameer Towers project. The group's 33% share of this contract is about R5.0 billion, of which about R90 million relates to the remainder of the current financial year. This event, while disappointing, will not have a material impact on the group's performance for the financial year to 30 June 2009. Current and future opportunities already identified in the region hold the potential to replace the forward order book. This announcement has not been reviewed or reported on by the group's auditors.

Two of South Africa's top listed construction groups, Murray - Roberts Holdings Ltd and Group Five Ltd, have been hit by the termination, cancellation and suspension of projects in the Middle East because of the worsening business environment caused by the global financial crisis. Murray - Roberts Holdings Ltd this week reported that Sama Dubai had terminated in Bahrain. Last year Murray - Roberts Holdings Ltd reported that the Trump Towers project in Dubai had been suspended until the global economy stabilised. The contract's value in September amounted to R3.2 billion of which R500 million related to the current financial year. Quentin Ivan, an analyst at Coronation Fund Managers, said the visibility of work from the region had deteriorated and the outlook for future work continued to be very murky.

Shareholders will be aware that market conditions in sectors of the Middle East and elsewhere have become volatile as a result of the worsening global financial crisis. Following cancellation of Trump Towers and the subsequent award of Dubai International Airport Concourse 3 to Murray - Roberts late last year, the group has proactively sought clarity from its clients on the firmness of its remaining order book in Middle East. It has now been confirmed that Sama Dubai has terminated the Salam Resort Project in Bahrain where the group is in joint venture with local partner Nass Corporation.

Shareholders are advised that the Competition Commission ("commission") has prohibited a proposed merger by Murray - Roberts subsidiary Much Asphalt (Pty) Ltd ("Much") with a small asphalt producer in the Tshwane area. While the merger would result in an increase of only 5% in production output by Much, it would establish Much in a market it cannot serve effectively from its current established locations. The group holds the view that this will increase competition in that market.



The group intends to contest the reasons given by the commission in reaching its decision and the inference of an uncompetitive asphalt supply market. The decision by Much to pursue the merger with the smaller but established and well located target producer was driven by the latter's capacity and quality of product challenges relative to project demand and the transport costs of bulk materials over extended delivery distances. Much offers best-in-class noise and atmospheric pollution abatement and product technology, national aggregate and bitumen sourcing capability and its BBBEE Codes of Good Practice Category 3 procurement rating.

M-R and its partner Leighton Habtoor were advised on Sunday 30 November 2008 that subject to contract, the Trump Towers project in Dubai would be suspended by its developer Nakheel until such time as the global economic system stabilises. The 50% value of this contract in the group order book at 30 September 2008 amounted to R3.2 billion, of which R0.5 billion relates to the current financial year. M-R in partnership with Leighton Habtoor is in advanced negotiation to secure additional infrastructure work for the Dubai government and the suspension of Trump Towers is not therefore expected to have a material impact on the group's prospects.



The group is committed to deliver its performance promise and reiterates its business update of 25 November 2008, including its advice that "shareholders are cautioned to be prudent with this guidance as the potential impact of current market volatility may manifest itself on construction sector and group performance in the future."

Shareholders are referred to the business update published on SENS following the annual general meeting on 28 October 2008. The global financial crisis has continued to worsen and the construction sector has been severely downgraded by the investment market on fears of recession and depleted future work opportunity.



Cash flow constraint in a few clients has resulted in the suspension of or delay to some projects in each of the group's markets, which are fully accounted in the group's current performance review. There is no resolution as yet to the Pakar mining project in Indonesia as notified previously and the group will follow the direction taken by its subsidiaries Petrosea and Clough on this matter.



The directors have reviewed the group's consolidated results for the first quarter to 30 September 2008 and first budget assessment for the year ahead and notwithstanding the above, maintain the market guidance for the financial year to 30 June 2009. Shareholders are cautioned to be prudent with this guidance as the potential impact of current market volatility may manifest itself on construction sector and Group performance in the future.



The directors have approved a comprehensive organisational change to be implemented by end-December 2008 that will sharpen operational and business development focus across all domestic and international operations. This will include a comprehensive program of cost elimination. The current executive management team has committed to implement these changes and to continue leading the group through the current market turmoil.



The group's substantial project order book provides a solid performance foundation for the period up to 2012 and beyond. There are a number of significant public works and other strategic opportunities in the group's domestic and international project pipeline that are likely to proceed and which will provide stability through the difficult times ahead.

M-R reported that R12.5 billion of new orders were secured in the first quarter, and that the group consumed about R6.5 billion of the previous year-end order book in the same period. This has resulted in an 11% growth in order book to R61 billion at 30 September 2008. Shareholders are advised that the value of work recorded in the group's order book register is based on signed and committed contracts for which the appropriate securities are in place.



The pipeline of potential work in the group's Opportunity Management System, which filters all current project opportunities against a suite of risk management criteria, amounts to more than R100 billion, of which almost R20 billion is for projects where the group is already selected as Preferred Bidder, but has not finalised negotiations and signed formal contracts. The majority of secured and potential order book is with South Africa and Middle East public sector clients and reputable global resources groups. It represents more than 200 projects in various stages of completion, distributed amongst 17 operating companies and 12 countries, of which about 60% is in South Africa and other SADC countries. About 80% of order book is in 40 projects (20%), 14 of which have remaining value of more than R1 billion each.



The group's construction and engineering sector is in a strong position to weather the cyclical impact of worsening conditions in global financial and investment markets, including a significant weakening in the exchange value of the rand. Preliminary indications of first quarter trading support the prospects statement included in the group's 2008 Annual Report. However, the final result for the year will in all likelihood be influenced both positively and negatively by factors such as commodity price and exchange rate volatility, tighter access to all forms of credit and some market weakness in the group's construction materials sector.



The directors meet at end-November 2008 to consider and approve the group's first quarter financial results and review market conditions and budget assessments for the year to 30 June 2009. A trading statement will be issued thereafter should this be necessary in terms of the JSE Listings Requirements.

Revenue increased to R27.9 billion (R17.8 billion) and EBITDA rose to R3.1 billion (R1.8 billion) for the year to 30 June 2008. Net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders more than doubled to R1.7 billion (R702 million). Headline earnings grew to 562cps (329cps).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 119cps has been declared.



Prospects

Capital expenditure is set to increase by a further 30% at least in the year ahead. This level of investment is made possible by the margins and cash flows available in the current market and ensures the capacity needed for future growth. There is little indication that current levels of activity will be significantly affected by the turmoil in international financial markets although signs of increased volatility are evident in some market sectors. M-R has embraced the growth challenge offered by increased investment into its domestic and international markets and despite the associated risks, maintains its non-negotiable commitment to sustainable earnings growth and value creation. Subject to a continuation in current levels of fixed investment activity in the group's markets, diluted headline earnings per share for the year ahead is expected to grow between 30% and 40% and due to exceptional profit taken in the 2008 financial year, diluted earnings per share is expected to grow between 25% and 35%.

Prospects

The primary challenge facing the engineering and construction Industry worldwide is the availability of sufficient skilled leadership and human resource needed to deliver the major projects and investment programs currently underway and planned for the years ahead. The directors expect fully diluted headline earnings for the full year to 30 June 2008 to grow between 50% and 60% compared with the comparable period to 30 June 2007.

Following a rearrangement of executive responsibility in M-R's SADC construction activities, Stephen Pell, director of Murray - Roberts Ltd and member of the Murray - Roberts Executive Committee, stepped down as managing director of Murray - Roberts Construction with effect from 31 December 2005. Executive director Sean Flanagan was appointed interim chief executive of the company.



Trading update

Murray - Roberts Construction experienced a difficult first-half to the current financial year, following a below-par performance in the previous year to 30 June 2005. Two building contracts in Tanzania and Botswana in particular have not delivered to expectation compounded by continuing difficulties in the Western Cape market. Despite this, operating profits in the group are expected to increase in both the half-year and full year relative to the previous reporting periods.



Corporate activity over the past year has resulted in increased finance costs and minorities, which combined with a significant reduction in associate earnings relative to the previous year, will reduce growth in headline earnings. Although some uncertainty still exists in the associate contribution from Clough, M-R remains of the view that the it will deliver real growth in headline earnings per share for the full financial year, prior to any accounting adjustment attributable to the group's broad-based black economic empowerment transaction.
