(Official Notice)
PSG announced that PSG Alpha Investments (Pty) Ltd. (?PSG Alpha?), a subsidiary of PSG, has acquired a 50% stake in Evergreen Retirement Holdings (Pty) Ltd. (?Evergreen Lifestyle?), one of South Africa?s leading providers of retirement living and a subsidiary of Amdec Investments (Pty) Ltd. (?the Amdec Group?). The transaction is subject to all regulatory approvals (to the extent required) being obtained.



PSG Alpha?s investment into the retirement property sector marks a significant new focus area for PSG. The investment will be R675 million, one of the biggest initial cash investments by the PSG group to date.



PSG Alpha?s investment mandate is to invest in and work with businesses that show high growth potential for the future. Evergreen Lifestyle meets these criteria with its competitive advantage, intellectual capital and deep-rooted expertise in the retirement property development sector, and is ideally positioned to entrench and grow its position as one of the leading providers in the retirement landscape in South Africa.



Evergreen Lifestyle?s offering stretches far beyond the stereotypical old- age home with its hospital-like atmosphere and nursing-based approach to care. Instead, their offering is a hospitality-based approach, with resort- style facilities and amenities in all their villages. Evergreen Lifestyle?s fundamental values and unwavering commitment to serve the aged community will remain a key pillar going forward.



For PSG, a number of factors make this investment in Evergreen Lifestyle an attractive company to invest in, mainly because it is one of the leading retirement accommodation brands in South Africa and is backed by the pioneering Amdec Group with its strong, proven track record.



The PSG Alpha investment brings together a major player in the financial services sector and a leader on the national property front. It also represents a long-term commitment by both parties: PSG, via its capital investment and proven track record to assist growing new businesses, and the Amdec Group through the construction, development and its knowledge of the retirement sector. The aforesaid confirms both parties? commitment to invest in South Africa.

PSG Group, an investment holding company, continues to use the sum-of-the-parts (?SOTP?) value to provide management and investors with a realistic and transparent way of valuing PSG Group. The calculation of the SOTP value is simple and requires limited subjectivity as approximately 91% of the value is calculated using JSE-listed share prices, while other assets and liabilities are included at market-related valuations.

PSG Group management consequently would like to advise that the other information has been updated and that as at the close of business on 19 June 2017, the SOTP value per PSG Group share was R243.83.

12-Apr-2017
(Official Notice)
PSG, an investment holding company, continues to use the SOTP value and recurring headline earnings per share benchmarks to provide management and investors with a realistic and transparent way of evaluating PSG?s performance.



PSG?s SOTP value is calculated using the quoted market prices for all JSE-listed investments, and market-related valuations for unlisted investments.



PSG?s recurring headline earnings is the sum of its effective interest in that of each of its underlying investments. The result is that investments in which PSG holds less than 20% and are generally not equity accountable in terms of accounting standards, are included in the calculation of consolidated recurring headline earnings. Once-off items are excluded from recurring headline earnings.



Trading statement

PSG hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that:

*Its SOTP value per share as at 28 February 2017 was R240.87, being 29% higher than the R186.67 reported as at 29 February 2016;



For the year ended 28 February 2017:

*Recurring headline earnings per share will be between R9.20 and R9.30, being between 16.8% and 18.0% higher than the R7.88 reported for the year ended 29 February 2016;



*Headline earnings per share will be between R9.95 and R10.05, being between 49.4% and 50.9% higher than the R6.66 reported for the year ended 29 February 2016; and



*Attributable earnings per share will be between R10.05 and R10.15, being between 39.4% and 40.8% higher than the R7.21 reported for the year ended 29 February 2016.



The year under review saw resilient recurring headline earnings performance from the majority of PSG?s core investments.



Headline earnings per share increased by a higher margin than that of recurring headline earnings per share mainly due to marked-to-market profits achieved on Dipeo?s investment portfolio, as opposed to marked-to-market losses incurred in the prior year.



Attributable earnings per share increased by a smaller margin than headline earnings per share mainly due to the non-recurrence of non-headline dilution gains made from an accounting perspective on associates in the prior year.



PSG?s live SOTP is available on its website at www.psggroup.co.za.



This financial information has not been reviewed or reported on by the auditor of PSG. The reviewed results for the year ended 28 February 2017 will be published on or about 19 April 2017.

Effective 12 January 2015, PSG acquired all the ordinary shares in Thembeka, not already held by PSG or its subsidiaries, by way of a scheme of arrangement in terms of section 114 of the Companies Act, 2008 (?the Scheme?).



In terms of the Scheme, Thembeka shareholders were issued and received 1.7 JSE-listed PSG ordinary shares for each unlisted Thembeka ordinary share held.



For capital gains tax purposes, based on tax advice obtained, the base cost of a Thembeka shareholder?s investment in unlisted Thembeka ordinary shares will be retained for its JSE-listed PSG Group ordinary shares. Accordingly, in order to determine the revised equivalent base cost per PSG ordinary share received in terms of the Scheme, a Thembeka shareholder should divide the original base cost per Thembeka ordinary share held by 1.7.



For illustration purposes only, an example of the aforementioned treatment is set out below:

Shareholder A previously acquired 1 000 ordinary shares in Thembeka at a total cost of R100 000. Shareholder A?s base cost per Thembeka ordinary share was therefore R100. Pursuant to the Scheme, shareholder A received 1 700 [1 000 x 1.7] ordinary shares in PSG. Accordingly, shareholder A?s equivalent base cost per PSG ordinary share received would amount to R58.82 [R100 ? 1.7].



Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Thembeka shareholders are advised to obtain independent tax advice in respect of the PSG ordinary shares obtained pursuant to the Scheme.

PSG, an investment holding company, continues to use the sum-of-the-parts (?SOTP?) value to provide management and investors with a more realistic and transparent way of valuing PSG. The calculation of the SOTP value is simple and requires limited subjectivity as approximately 85% of the value is calculated using listed share prices, while other investments are included at market-related valuations.



In order to provide investors with a more up to date indicative SOTP value, PSG management will, by close of business on 14 January 2015, release an online tool on its website (www.psggroup.co.za) whereby PSG?s SOTP value is calculated based on approximately 15-minute delayed JSE- listed share prices for its listed investments, while all other information will be updated on a monthly basis (the most recent being as at 31 December 2014).



The information provided is for general information purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell any securities or constitute investment advice relating to securities or a representation that the security is a suitable or appropriate investment for any person or warrants any share price value in any form. Investors are advised to give independent consideration to and conduct independent investigation with regards to this information and the value of PSG shares, and to obtain investment advice from their independent financial advisors.

PSG, an investment holding company, continues to use the sum-of-the-parts ("SOTP") value and recurring headline earnings per share benchmarks to provide management and investors with a more realistic and transparent way of evaluating PSG's performance.



PSG's SOTP value is calculated using the quoted market prices for all JSE-listed and over-the-counter traded investments, and market related valuations for unquoted, unlisted investments. PSG's recurring headline earnings is the sum of its effective interest in that of each of its underlying investments. The result is that investments in which PSG holds less than 20% and are generally not equity accountable in terms of accounting standards, are included in the calculation of consolidated recurring headline earnings.



Trading statement

PSG hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that:

-Its SOTP value per share as at 4 October 2013 will be between R84 and R86; and

-For the six month period ended 31 August 2013:

*Recurring headline earnings per share will be between 191 cents and 198 cents, or between 17.5% and 21.8% higher than that for the six month period ended 31 August 2012;

*Headline earnings per share will be between 235 cents and 243 cents, or between 11.8% and 15.6% higher than that for the six month period ended 31 August 2012; and

*Attributable earnings per share will be between 242 cents and 250 cents, or between 38.8% and 43.4% higher than that for the six month period ended 31 August 2012.



The increase in recurring headline earnings per share was primarily due to strong performances from Capitec and PSG Konsult.



Headline earnings per share increased by a smaller margin than recurring headline earnings per share as PSG achieved lower non-recurring headline profits during the period under review. This was mainly as a result of substantial marked-to-market profits achieved in Thembeka Capital?s portfolio of listed shares during the previous corresponding financial period, which were not repeated to the same extent during the period under review.



The increase in attributable earnings per share was mainly as a result of non-headline gains during the period under review as opposed to non-headline impairment losses during the previous corresponding financial period.



The unaudited results for the six month period ended 31 August 2013 will be published on SENS on or about 14 October 2013.

PSG, an investment holding company, continues to use the sum-of-the-parts ('SOTP") value and recurring headline earnings per share benchmarks to provide management and investors with a more realistic and transparent way of evaluating PSG's performance.



PSG's SOTP value is calculated using the quoted market prices for all JSE-listed and over-the-counter traded investments, and market related valuations for unquoted, unlisted investments. PSG's recurring headline earnings is the sum of its effective interest in that of each of its underlying investments. The result is that investments in which PSG holds less than 20% and are generally not equity accountable in terms of accounting standards, are included in the calculation of consolidated recurring headline earnings.



Trading statement

PSG advised that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that:

-Its SOTP value per share as at 28 February 2013 will be between R70 and R75, or between 25.2% and 34.1% higher than that as at 29 February 2012; and

-For the year ended 28 February 2013:

*Recurring headline earnings per share will be between 390 cents and 395 cents, or between 26.4% and 28% higher than that for the year ended 29 February 2012;

*Headline earnings per share will be between 477 cents and 482 cents, or between 46.2% and 47.8% higher than that for the year ended 29 February 2012; and

*Attributable earnings per share will be between 623 cents and 628 cents, or between 54.1% and 55.3% higher than that for the year ended 29 February 2012.



The increase in recurring headline earnings per share was again predominantly due to Capitec Bank Holdings Ltd.'s ("Capitec") exceptional performance.



The increase in non-recurring headline earnings was mainly as a result of substantial marked-to-market profits achieved in Thembeka Capital Ltd.'s portfolio of listed shares in the current financial year.



The increase in attributable earnings per share was mainly as a result of the non-headline profits made on the disposal of PSG's Capitec rights offer shares and Zeder Investments Ltd.'s disposal of a 15.1% interest in Capevin Holdings Ltd.



The reviewed results for the year ended 28 February 2013 will be published on SENS on or about 15 April 2013.

PSG continues to use the recurring headline earnings method to provide management and investors with a more realistic and transparent way of evaluating PSG's earnings performance. Consolidated recurring headline earnings represent the sum of PSG's effective interest in that of each strategic investment, regardless of its percentage shareholding. The result is that investments in which PSG or an underlying investment holds less than 20% and are generally not equity accountable in terms of accounting standards, are included in the calculation of consolidated recurring headline earnings. Marked-to-market fluctuations and one-off items are excluded. PSG hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that, for the year ended 29 February 2012:

*recurring headline earnings will be between 308 cents and 310 cents per share or between 27.3% to 28.2% higher;

Shareholders in PSG's cumulative, non-redeemable, non-participating preference shares ("PSG preference shares") are referred to the SENS announcement dated 25 January 2012. In accordance with the PSG preference share terms, the company will adjust the dividend rate in the event that an amendment to the Income Tax Act results in both a cost saving to the company and the preference dividends being taxable in the hands of the PSG preference shareholders. Such adjustment will, however, be limited to the extent that the company incurs less cost in servicing the PSG preference shares.



Shareholders are hereby advised that the PSG board of directors have resolved that the PSG preference shares dividend rate be increased from 75% to 83.33% of the prime interest rate with effect from 1 April 2012, being an increase of 11.11%, and which was calculated in terms of the formula as per the announcement dated 25 January 2012 when the widely anticipated dividends tax rate was 10%. PSG believes that the increase in the PSG preference shares dividend rate is fair, albeit that the aforementioned increase is marginally more than the 10% STC saving obtained by the company.



Shareholders should note that in terms of the relevant PSG preference share terms, should there in future be any changes to tax legislation which result in additional tax being levied on dividends received by the PSG preference shareholders, there will be no obligation on the company to adjust the PSG preference shares dividend rate, unless such changes to tax legislation simultaneously result in a cost saving to the company in servicing such shares.

PSG's policy remains to pay up to 100% of free cash flow as an ordinary dividend. The directors have consequently resolved to declare a final dividend of 56 cents (2011: 47 cents) per share for a total dividend of 82 cents (2011: 67 cents) per share in respect of the financial year ended 29 February 2012. The final dividend has been determined based on the company's estimated free cash flow of R151 million as per the unaudited management accounts of the company for the financial year ended 29 February 2012, and has not been reviewed or reported on by the auditors of the company.



The increase in the total dividend compared to that of the corresponding period in the prior year should not be construed as being indicative of the consolidated attributable and headline earnings of the PSG Group for the financial year ended 29 February 2012. Only once a reasonable degree of certainty exists regarding the consolidated attributable and headline earnings of the PSG Group for the financial year ended 29 February 2012, will consideration be given to whether a trading statement needs to be published or not.

According to Business Day, Investment holding firm PSG Group said yesterday that it would not sell its controlling stake in Capitec Bank. PSG Group CEO Piet Mouton said Capitec, which has given its bigger rivals sleepless nights with its frenetic expansion, had plans to grow its retail franchise. "We are invested for the long haul in Capitec which has significant ambitious plans" he said when discussing PSG's first half results to August.

Recurring headline earnings represent the sum of PSG's effective interest in that of each investment, regardless of its percentage shareholding. The result is that investments in which PSG or an underlying investment holds less than 20% and are generally not equity accountable in terms of accounting standards, are included in the calculation of our consolidated recurring headline earnings. Marked-to-market fluctuations and one-off items are excluded.



In terms of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, a listed company is required to publish a trading statement as soon as it becomes aware that the financial results for the next period to be reported on will show a 20% or more difference from those of the previous corresponding period. PSG hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that, for the six months ended 31 August 2011:

* recurring headline earnings will be between 135 cents and 136 cents per share or between 21,3% to 22,2% higher; and

* headline earnings will be between 103 cents and 104 cents per share or between 24,1% to 24,8% lower; and

* attributable earnings will be between 87 cents and 88 cents per share or between 29,6% to 30,4% lower than that for the six months ended 31 August 2010.



The increase in recurring headline earnings was primarily as a result of Capitec's exceptional performance. The decrease in headline and attributable earnings was mainly as a result of a marked-to-market loss incurred on PSG Financial Services Ltd`s interest rate hedge during the past six months as opposed to marked-to-market profits achieved in Thembeka's investment portfolio of listed shares during the same period last year. This financial information has not been reviewed or reported on by the auditor of PSG. The results for the six months ended 31 August 2011 will be published on or about 17 October 2011.

According to Finweek, PSG's private education company, Curro Holdings ("Curro"), in which it indirectly owns 76%, is set on raising R320 million in new capital via an AltX listing in mid-2011. Curro aims to have 40 schools and 45 000 pupils by 2020, with profits after tax of R450 million. That could possibly put a future value of R5 billion on Curro. Finweek also noted that while Curro has largely been underplayed by PSG, at the company's AGM executives could not contain their excitement about Curro. However, despite all the promise, the market may treat Curro cautiously as it did initially with Capitec.

The result is that investments in which PSG or an underlying investment holds less than 20% and are generally not equity accountable in terms of accounting standards, are included in the calculation of our consolidated recurring headline earnings. Marked-to-market fluctuations are excluded.



Trading statement

PSG hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that, for the year ended 28 February 2011:

*recurring headline earnings will be between 241 cents and 243 cents per share or between 16.2% to 17.2% higher; and

*headline earnings will be between 305 cents and 307 cents per share or between 22.4% to 23.2% higher; and

*attributable earnings will be between 423 cents and 425 cents per share or between 87.3% to 88.2% higher than that for the year ended 28 February 2010.

The results for the year ended 28 February 2011 will be published on or about 18 April 2011.

Shareholders are referred to the joint announcement released by CIC Holdings Ltd ("CIC") and Imperial Holdings Ltd ("Imperial") on Tuesday, 13 July 2010 ("the Firm Intention announcement"), with regard to the firm intention of Imperial to make an offer to acquire the entire issued share capital of CIC, by way of a scheme of arrangement, in terms of section 311 of the South African and/or the Namibian Companies Act, No 61 of 1973, as amended, as may be applicable ("the scheme"), or at Imperial's discretion, an offer in terms of section 440K of the South African Companies Act and/or section 314 of the Namibian Companies Act, as may be applicable ("the Firm Intention Offer").



Shareholders are further advised that Paladin Capital Ltd ("Paladin"), a subsidiary of the group, is the beneficial holder of 123 470 457 ordinary shares in CIC and has signed an irrevocable undertaking to vote in favour of the implementation of the Scheme. In the event that the Scheme becomes unconditional and is implemented Paladin will dispose of its shares in CIC to Imperial for the consideration of R2.87 per share, in accordance with the scheme ("the disposal").



The scheme consideration payable by Imperial to Paladin, in the event that the scheme becomes unconditional and is implemented, in respect of Paladin's 123 470 457 ordinary shares in CIC will be a total consideration of R354 360 211.59 or the Namibian Dollar equivalent, to the extent that same may be applicable, equalling R2.87 per share or the Namibian Dollar equivalent, to the extent that same may be applicable.



The group owned 80.62% in Paladin at 28 February 2010. CIC has been a star investment for Paladin, showing significant growth in the last few years. However, management feels that CIC will benefit from forming part of the Imperial group going forward. In addition, given Paladin`s strategy to grow it's educational investment division and to take advantage of other attractive investment opportunities, management believes that the proceeds on the sale of CIC can be reinvested in opportunities that will facilitate further growth for Paladin and the group. The disposal is subject to the implementation of the Scheme and shareholders are referred to the Firm Intention announcement for a detailed summary of the conditions precedent relevant to the firm intention offer and the Scheme.

The PSG Group has embarked on a restructuring process to streamline the holding company of its various asset management businesses, PSG Fund Management. The aim is to provide for a focused and simplified asset management business to pave the way for future growth opportunities. PSG Fund Management to date followed a strategy of growing various asset management boutique teams, independently from one another. This structure is now to be abridged for more focus. The key executives that will drive the process are Ross Breedt who will head the marketing and sales, Adrian Clayton the equity centric asset management, JP Matthews the fixed interest and hedge fund asset management, Rene Miles the retail investment platform with Mike Smith as chief operating officer of the whole combined business.



PSG Fund Management distributes its products to various independent financial advisors including that of PSG Group's own independent financial advisor force. Through this, PSG Group has acquired an enviable asset base of approximately R96 billion in retail assets, which is managed largely by various external asset managers. Testimony to the good equity fund management capability within PSG Fund Management is the performances of the PSG Tanzanite Flexible Fund and PSG Alphen Growth Fund. According to 31 May 2010 Morningstar Rankings, PSG Tanzanite Flexible Fund was ranked top decile over one, three and five years and ranked first in its sector over two and three years. The PSG Alphen Growth Fund have attained Standard - Poors awards in 2004 and 2006 and further won a raging Bull Award in 2005 and was the top performing equity fund in the general equity sector in 2009. A refocused asset management strategy means that PSG Fund Management will be ideally positioned to capitalise on its existing asset management expertise, thereby growing its market share within the bigger PSG Group as well as in the wider investment market.

(Official Notice)
In the spirit of consistent clear and unambiguous communication to stakeholders, management introduced the recurring headline earnings concept as the predominant measure of PSG's financial performance a few years ago. At the time, recurring headline earnings was defined as reportable headline earnings in terms of accounting standards, excluding any marked-to-market movements and one-off items. During the past year we revisited and fine-tuned this methodology by now measuring recurring headline earnings on a see-through basis throughout the group.



PSG's recurring headline earnings is the sum of its effective interest in that of each of its underlying investees, regardless of its percentage shareholding. The result is that investments in which PSG or an investee holds less than 20% and is not allowed to equity account in terms of accounting standards, are now included in the calculation of our consolidated recurring headline earnings. This provides management and investors with a more realistic and simple way of evaluating PSG's financial performance. Having applied the aforesaid principles to the prior year figures, PSG's recurring headline earnings for the year ended 28 February 2009 amounted to 174.3 cents per share as opposed to the 174.9 cents per share previously reported in terms of the old methodology.



PSG Group hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that, for the year ended 28 February 2010:

*Recurring headline earnings will be between 200 cents and 213 cents per share or between 14.7% to 22.2% higher

*Headline earnings will be between 243 cents and 256 cents per share or between 272.1% to 292.0% higher than that for the year ended 28 February 2009. The increase in headline earnings per share is mainly as a result of marked-to-market profits.

The attributable earnings per share figure cannot be calculated with a reasonable degree of certainty at this point and an indication of what the attributable earnings per share would be is therefore not provided. This financial information has not been reviewed and reported on by the auditors of PSG Group. The results for the year ended 28 February 2010 will be published on 19 April 2010.

According to Business Report, the entire 14-member board of Pioneer had been asked to resign by shareholder PSG Group after the food processor was fined R195 million in the bread price-fixing scandal. PSG owns 41% of Kaap Agri through Zeder Investments, and Kaap Agri holds 40% of Pioneer. Jannie Mouton, executive chairman of PSG, confirmed that this move was aimed at fixing the management structure at Pioneer as requested by the Competition Commission. the commission recently said it intended to appeal the fine, rather wanting the fine to be calculated on total group turnover. Mouton further commented, "Some of these members are still thinking about this matter, while others are afraid their resignation may destabilise the company. But we need to fix the management of the company once and for all".

The current uncertain environment necessitates a more conservative approach to business. Management remains focused to grow PSG's recurring headline earnings base. Management believes it to be achievable given the diversification of the group's operations across the broader economy. Our primary goal remains to maximise shareholders' wealth over time. Subsequent to 31 August 2008, PSG has incurred further marked-to-market losses of R162 million on its investments in, inter alia, Petmin, Vox Telecom and Thembeka Capital's JSE shares. This relates to previously reported marked-to-market profits of approximately R831 million.

PSG Group hereby advises that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that, for the six months ended 31 August 2008:

*recurring headline earnings (i.e. reportable headline earnings before marked-to-market profits/losses, abnormal items not necessarily of a recurring nature, funding costs and secondary tax on companies) will be between 103.1 cents and 104.7 cents per share or between 32% to 34% higher;

*comparable recurring headline earnings (i.e. excluding equity accounted earnings of investments in associated companies which were previously marked to market) will be between 88.2 cents and 89.7 cents per share or between 15% to 17% higher;

*headline earnings will be between 27.8 cents and 31.5 cents per share or between 83% to 85% lower; and

*attributable earnings will be between 28.8 cents and 32.6 cents per share or between 83% to 85% lower,

than that for the six months ended 31 August 2007. The decrease in headline and attributable earnings per share is as a result of the non-occurrence of the previous period's extraordinary profits on PSG's market related investment portfolio. The results for the six months ended 31 August 2008 are expected to be published on or about 13 October 2008.

Headline earnings decreased by 25.9% to R482.5 million for the year ended 29 February 2008, with headline earnings per share down by 43.2% to 295.1c. This decrease is mainly as a result of the non-occurrence of 2007's extraordinary R425 million profit on PSG's then 15% interest in JSE Ltd, which accounted for 339c of last year's 519.3cps headline earnings.



Dividends

The directors of PSG Group Ltd have resolved on a 25% increase in the annual dividend and have consequently declared a final dividend of 80cps (62.5cps) for a total dividend of 112.5cps (90cps) in respect of the year ended 29 February 2008.



Prospects

PSG and all its subsidiaries are well capitalised. The group is suitably positioned to take advantage of opportunities that may arise in these uncertain times. PSG remains committed to improving the recurring income emanating from its core investments. The performance of these companies is interlinked with the South African economy which in turn is dependent on international markets. Management is continuously striving to add value for shareholders. PSG shall persist in this quest.

(Official Notice)
Reunert and PSG have agreed to end their joint participation in Quince Capital Holdings (Pty) Ltd ("Quince") formed in May 2007. The subprime crisis has the potential of greatly increasing the cost of funding to Quince necessitating exploring alternative ways of financing the business. Such evaluation of funding options has led the partners in Quince to conclude that it would be in the interest of shareholders to undo the joint venture.



Consequently, Reunert will acquire all the shares not owned by Reunert in Quince for approximately R420 million, being the original amount invested by the exiting shareholders (including PSG), plus the retained profit in Quince attributable to these shareholders for the period 2 May 2007 to 31 January 2008 payable in cash. Simultaneously, PSG, Michiel le Roux and management will purchase their original investments previously sold to Quince, i.e. Quince Property Finance (previously ZS Rational) and Quince Scripfin, from Quince. They shall continue to develop these profitable companies and explore further opportunities.



The aforesaid is subject to the finalisation of formal agreements between Quince shareholders, as well as shareholder and regulatory approvals (to the extent required) and, if approved, will have an effective date of 1 February 2008.

On a comparable basis, headline earnings per share for the six months ended 31 August 2005 increased by 328% from 23.6c per share to 101.1c per share. The group's rolling annualised return on equity is 42.4%. The economic environment continued to be favourable for the group's operations and the strong performance of the local equity markets had a positive impact on the group's results. A substantial portion of the headline earnings for the six- month period emanates from the equity-related businesses. These profits may not necessarily be of a recurring nature. Most of the operating subsidiaries performed in line with expectations or better.



It was announced in the press on 12 August 2005 that the group sold a controlling interest in Channel Life to Sanlam, retaining a 35% interest. Regulatory approvals had not been obtained as at 31 August 2005 but are expected to be finalised by November 2005.
