Outlook

The effect of the higher interest rate will have a positive impact on the investment side of the group.

(Official Notice)
Nictus has maintained a secondary listing on the Namibian Stock Exchange ("NSX") since 19 October 1992. However, in light of the successful unbundling of the Namibian holding company, Nictus Holdings Ltd. ("NHL"), and its subsequent primary listing on the NSX in 2012 and the resultant further development and establishment of effective management of both Nictus and NHL, the secondary listing on the NSX is no longer considered to hold significant benefit for the Company or its stakeholders.



Accordingly, Nictus announced that it has decided to request for the cancellation of the secondary listing of its shares on the NSX. The trading of Nictus shares on the NSX will be suspended from 09h00 on Friday, 28 November 2014, with the cancellation of Nictus? secondary listing on the NSX being effective from 09h00 on Friday, 5 December 2014.



The Company believes that such delisting will have little to no effect on its shareholders and investors as the shares will continue to trade on the JSE. The delisting does not imply that the Company is changing its strategy for the South African market going forward.

Shareholders are advised to seek their own advice regarding taxation in respect of the unbundling.



A CGT base cost for the Nictus Namibian Shares will be established in the hands of Shareholders and will be equal to the amount of the dividend received by each Shareholder. The value of the total dividend distributed by Nictus will be calculated, for accounting purposes, as at 31 August 2012 which is the effective date of the Unbundling and will be disclosed in the interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2012 which are expected to be published on SENS on or about 3 December 2012. The CGT base cost of the Nictus ordinary shares remains unchanged in the hands of the shareholders subsequent to the unbundling.

Nictus advised shareholders that it has entered into an agreement ("the agreement") with Pupkewitz Motor Holdings (Pty) Ltd ("Pupkewitz") to acquire the General Motors dealership in Walvisbay for R7.1 million ("the acquisition") as a going concern through Auas Motors (Pty) Ltd ("Auas"), a 100% held subsidiary. The Walvisbay dealership has a branch in Swakopmund that forms part of the acquisition and provides Auas the right to sell all General Motors products in these areas. This gives Auas the opportunity to expand their current activities in the motor trade and is the distributor of General Motors products in Namibia.



The acquisition broadens the group's motor vehicles division's base of operations. It will therefore provide a higher throughput and result in economies of scale benefits for Auas. This would result in improved service to the public in Namibia. The Competition Commission in Namibia still needs to approve the transaction. The result of the Competition Commission approval will be published when it is available. All other conditions precedent has been met, with the effective date of the acquisition being 1 October 2010. The purchase consideration of R7.1 million will be discharged in cash utilising the group's internal cash resources.



Financial effects

Based on the latest unaudited management information provided to Nictus by Pupkewitz and taking transaction costs into account, the impact of the acquisition on the company's most recently published earnings per share, headline earnings per share, net asset value per share and net tangible asset value per share, namely for the year ended 31 March 2010, is not considered to be significant.

Recognising this, management has already considered measures and implemented certain strategies to soften the possible impact on the results of the group. Historically the majority of the groups earnings are earned in the second part of the financial year and the board is positive that the same will apply in the current financial year.

The buoyant economy coupled with the strong Rand and the base resource prices led to a low inflationary and interest rate environment. The consumer benefited from a higher disposable income and lower furniture prices. The Namibian economy was not as buoyant as that of South Africa, due to the adverse effects of the stronger Rand on the economy. Revenue rose to R247.9 million (R210 million) with gross profit increasing to R48.8 million (R38.2 million). After finance costs of R5.2 million (R4.6 million) the group showed a profit to shareholders of R3 million compared to a R1.1 million loss in the previous period. Headline earnings grew to 5.34cps (0.06cps).



Dividend

The board of directors has approved a final dividend of 1.5cps.



Prospects

The board is of the opinion that most of the group's future growth will come from the South African market that positive trading conditions would continue in South Africa and the Namibian economy should follow suite.

Premium income received in the insurance and finance segment decreased by 21%. This was due to a more focussed approach to client selection and management. The furniture retail business increased turnover by 20%, whereas there was no growth generated by the carpet retail line. Turnover in the motor retail segment increased by 14% if compared to the prior year supported in the latter half of the financial year by the new product line-up of GM and the completion of new facilities. The wholesale segment experienced a 20% decrease in turnover as a result of the group applying stricter financial discipline to its customer base and aggressive competitive marketing activities of alternative flooring options. Revenue increased slightly to R210m (R208m) and a net profit after tax of R1m (1.7m) was achieved. Earnings per share fell to 2.01c (3.03c) but headline earnings increased by 51c to 1.60c (1.09c). The board decided not to pay a dividend in this period in order to strengthen the business base for future growth.



Prospects

The approved South African insurance licence offers good opportunities for the group`s niche product. The board has however decided on a disciplined growth policy for its insurance segment in South Africa. Nictus expects the Namibian economy to experience moderate growth in the year ahead and anticipates that the newly elected President of the Republic of Namibia will implement changes which will assist the business environment positively. However the group does not expect the Namibian economy to match the growth expected in the South African economy.



The group`s annual general meeting will be held on 22 August 05.
