Remgro?s results for the year ended 30 June 2017 are due to be released on the Stock Exchange News Service on or about 20 September 2017. In compliance with the JSE Listings Requirements, Remgro shareholders are advised that Remgro?s headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) for the year ended 30 June 2017 is expected to be between 1 466.7 cents (31% higher) and 1 511.5 cents (35% higher) compared to the HEPS of 1 119.6 cents reported for the year ended 30 June 2016.



The increase in HEPS is mainly due to a positive fair value adjustment of R687 million, relating to the decrease in value of the bondholders? exchange option of the exchangeable bonds (?option remeasurement?), whereas the comparative results were affected by a negative option remeasurement of R730 million, as well as once-off transaction costs amounting to R788 million, which relate to the Mediclinic International Limited rights issue and Al Noor Hospitals Group plc transaction.



Shareholders were informed during March 2017 that Remgro adopted the amendments to IAS 16: Property, Plant and Equipment and IAS 41: Agriculture and adjusted the prior year?s weighted number of shares in issue due to a rights issue, which resulted in the restatement of its results for the comparative year ended 30 June 2016.

Dividend

Notice is hereby given that a final gross dividend of 275 cents (2015: 259 cents) per share has been declared out of income reserves in respect of both the ordinary shares of no par value and the unlisted B ordinary shares of no par value, for the year ended 30 June 2016.

(Official Notice)
Remgro?s results for the year ended 30 June 2016 are due to be released on the Stock Exchange News Service on or about 20 September 2016. In compliance with the JSE Listings Requirements, Remgro shareholders are advised that Remgro?s reported headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) for the year ended 30 June 2016 is expected to be between 1 119.6 cents (-28%) and 1 181.8 cents (-24%) compared to the HEPS of 1 555.0 cents reported for the year ended 30 June 2015.



The decrease in HEPS is mainly due to once-off transaction costs incurred with the Mediclinic International Ltd. (Mediclinic) rights issue and Al Noor Hospitals Group plc (Al Noor) transaction amounting to R788 million, of which R402 million is Remgro?s own costs and R386 million is Remgro?s share of Mediclinic?s transaction costs, as well as a fair value adjustment of R730 million, relating to the increase in value of the bondholders? exchange option of the bonds (accounted for as a derivative liability) that were issued during March 2016 to partially refinance the foreign bridge funding that was raised for the Al Noor transaction. The bonds are exchangeable into Mediclinic International plc (Mediclinic plc) shares and/or cash and fair value adjustments on the option (reflecting the movement in the underlying Mediclinic plc share price) are likely to cause volatility in headline earnings during its five-year term.

CEO Jannie Durand said its push into Africa was spearheaded by its three sizeable investments- banking group FirstRand, consumer brands conglomerate RCL Foods and shipping and logistics group Grindrod. Mr Durand added that Remgro's own strategy of realising shareholder value over the medium to long term continued to be the main focus of the group.

11-Mar-2013
(Official Notice)
Remgro's interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2012 is due to be released on SENS on or about 19 March 2013. In compliance with the JSE Listings Requirements, Remgro released a trading statement on 28 November 2012 whereby shareholders were advised that Remgro's reported headline earnings per share (HEPS) is expected to be more than 20% lower than the HEPS of the comparative six months ended 31 December 2011. No range for the expected deviation in HEPS was provided as there was not reasonable certainty on the results for the six months ended 31 December 2012 at that stage.



As most of Remgro's investee companies have now reported their actual results, reasonable certainty on the results for the six months ended 31 December 2012 has now been obtained. Accordingly shareholders are advised that Remgro's reported HEPS is expected to be between 33% and 37% lower than the HEPS of the comparative six months ended 31 December 2011. As previously reported, the decrease in HEPS is mainly due to once-off charges incurred by Mediclinic International Ltd (Mediclinic) with the refinancing of its Swiss and South African debt during October 2012. Due to the fact that Mediclinic has a March year-end, Remgro would normally only have accounted for Mediclinic's results for the six months ended 30 September 2012 (without making any adjustments) when preparing its interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2012. However, due to the materiality of the amounts involved, the results of Mediclinic for the six months ended 30 September 2012 has been adjusted with the once-off charges referred to above before being accounted for in Remgro's interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2012.



Shareholders are further advised that, excluding the effect of Mediclinic's refinancing cost referred to above, Remgro's HEPS for the six months ended 31 December 2012 is expected to be between 16% and 20% higher than the HEPS of the comparative six months ended 31 December 2011. The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the company's external auditors.

(Official Notice)
Remgro's interim results for the six months ending 31 December 2012 are due to be released on SENS on or about 19 March 2013. In compliance with the JSE Listings Requirements, shareholders are advised that Remgro?s reported headline earnings per share (HEPS) is expected to be more than 20% lower than the HEPS of the comparative six months ended 31 December 2011.



This decrease in HEPS is mainly due to once-off charges incurred by Mediclinic International Ltd (Mediclinic) with the refinancing of its Swiss and South African debt during October 2012. These once-off items include the following:

*the derecognition of the mark-to-market liability relating to the Swiss interest rate swap of CHF418 million;

*accelerated amortisation charges of Swiss capitalised financing expenses of CHF18 million;

*breakage charges of R55 million relating to existing South African debts; and

*a realised gain of R574 million on foreign exchange forward contracts.



Due to the fact that Mediclinic has a March year-end, Remgro would normally only have accounted for Mediclinic's results for the six months ended 30 September 2012 when preparing its interim results for the six months ending 31 December 2012. However, due to the materiality of the amounts involved, the results of Mediclinic for the six months ended 30 September 2012 will be adjusted with the items referred to above before being accounted for in Remgro's interim results for the six months ending 31 December 2012.



Shareholders are advised that a further trading statement will be issued in due course to provide a range for the expected deviation in HEPS as soon as reasonable certainty on the results for the six months ending 31 December 2012 is obtained.

(Official Notice)
As previously communicated to shareholders the financial year-end of the company was changed from 31 March to 30 June. As a result of the change in year-end and in order to comply with the listings requirements of the JSE Ltd Remgro published a second set of interim results to shareholders for the twelve month period ended 31 March 2011 during June 2011. Remgro is currently finalising its audited financial results for the fifteen months ended 30 June 2011, which is due to be released on SENS on or about 20 September 2011. Accordingly, shareholders are advised that Remgro's reported headline earnings per share ("HEPS") for the fifteen months ended 30 June 2011 is expected to be between 50% and 60% higher than the HEPS of the comparative twelve months ended 31 March 2010. This increase in HEPS is mainly due to the extension of the financial reporting period by three months, which caused the results of investee companies to be accounted for periods varying between twelve and eighteen months. The HEPS for the fifteen months ended 30 June 2011 and the twelve months ended 31 March 2010 are therefore not comparable.
28-Jul-2011
(Official Notice)
As previously communicated to shareholders the financial year-end of the company was changed from 31 March to 30 June. The rationale for the change was to comply with the revised International Auditing Standard 600, as fully set out in the announcement released on SENS on 16 March 2011. As a result of the change in year-end and in order to comply with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Ltd ("JSE Listings Requirements") Remgro published a second set of interim results to shareholders for the twelve month period ended 31 March 2011 during June 2011.



Remgro is currently finalising its audited financial results for the fifteen months ended 30 June 2011, which is due to be released on SENS on or about 20 September 2011. Shareholders are advised that Remgro's reported headline earnings per share ("HEPS") for the fifteen months ended 30 June 2011 is expected to be at least 20% higher than the HEPS of the comparative twelve months ended 31 March 2010. This increase in HEPS is mainly due to the extension of the financial reporting period by three months. As Remgro is still awaiting the results of certain investee companies, it is not possible to quantify with reasonable certainty the extent of its results for the fifteen months ended 30 June 2011 within the 20% range required by the JSE Listings Requirements at this stage. A further trading statement will be released on SENS as soon as there is more certainty in this regard.
21-Jun-2011
(C)
Sales revenue for the twelve months ended 31 March 2011 increased to R12.2 billion (2010: R11.8 billion). Trading profit lowered to R659 million (2010: R841 million), but profit attributable to equity holders of the parent more than doubled to R9.7 billion (2010: R3.1 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per share rose to 811.6cps (2010: 690.1cps).



Dividends

As a result of the change in year-end, no dividend is proposed for the twelve months ended 31 March 2011. The final dividend for the fifteen months ending 30 June 2011 will be declared in September 2011, payable in November 2011.



Change in financial year-end

During the period under review the financial year-end of the company was changed from 31 March to 30 June, with effect from the current financial year. The rationale for the change was to comply with the revised International Auditing Standard 600 (ISA 600), as fully set out in the announcement released on SENS on 16 March 2011. Remgro therefore has to publish and distribute a second set of interim results to shareholders for the twelve-month period ended 31 March 2011, with comparative figures for the previous year. Remgro will also publish and distribute audited financial results for the fifteen months ending 30 June 2011, by no later than 30 September 2011. As a result of the change in year-end, Remgro's final and interim dividends will now be paid during November and April of each year respectively, compared to August and January previously. In respect of the fifteen-month period ending 30 June 2011, the final dividend will be based on earnings for the fifteen months and will be paid in November 2011. For subsequent financial years, the final dividend will again be based on earnings for the twelve months under review.

Remgro shareholders are referred to the detailed terms announcement released on SENS on 15 December 2010 and published in the press on 17 December 2010 (the "Remgro announcement"), wherein Remgro advised shareholders that a group of RMBH and FirstRand Directors, comprising Messrs GT Ferreira, LL Dippenaar and PK Harris ("the founders") have reached agreement with Remgro to acquire from Remgro, 20 543 977 FirstRand ordinary shares, together with 3 467 125 MMI Holdings ordinary shares in exchange for 12 112 707 RMBH ordinary shares beneficially held by the founders (the "founders' FirstRand exchange"). Shareholders are advised that Remgro has obtained advice from an independent expert acceptable to the JSE that the founders' FirstRand exchange is fair insofar as the shareholders of Remgro are concerned, and such opinion is available for inspection at the company's registered offices. As such the only condition precedent has been fulfilled and the trade will be executed.

Remgro is currently finalising its results for the six months ended 30 September 2010, which is due to be released on SENS on or about 25 November 2010. Shareholders are advised that Remgro's reported headline earnings per share ("HEPS") is expected to be between 54% and 58% higher than the HEPS of the comparative period ended 30 September 2009. This increase in HEPS is mainly attributable to the following: higher earnings reported by both FirstRand Ltd and RMB Holdings Ltd than in the comparative period mainly due to a significant reduction in bad debts and improved profitability in both RMB and Wesbank; higher earnings from Total South Africa (Pty) Ltd due to favourable stock revaluations and savings in operating costs in the period under review compared to stock revaluation losses in the comparative period; and higher earnings from Kagiso Trust Investments (Pty) Ltd mainly due to favourable fair value adjustments relating to its shareholdings in Metropolitan Holdings Ltd and Adcock Ingram Holdings Ltd.

(Official Notice)
In the circular issued to holders of Remgro ordinary shares and "B" ordinary shares ("Remgro Shares") ("Remgro Shareholders"), on Monday, 26 July 2010 (the "Circular") and the finalisation announcement published on the securities exchange news service operated by the JSE Limited ("JSE") on Wednesday, 18 August 2010, Remgro Shareholders were informed, inter alia, of the unbundling by Remgro of its 28.49% shareholding in the issued share capital of Trans Hex to Remgro Shareholders recorded in the company's register as at the close of business on Friday, 10 September 2010 (the "Unbundling Record Date") (the "Unbundling"). The Unbundling was completed in terms of section 46 of the Income Tax Act, 1962 (No. 58 of 1962), as amended ("the Tax Act"), and in compliance with Section 90 of the Companies Act (No. 61 of 1973), in the ratio of 5.85 Trans Hex shares ("Trans Hex shares") for every 100 Remgro Shares held on the Unbundling Record Date. The purpose of this announcement is to notify Remgro Shareholders of the closing prices of Trans Hex shares and Remgro Shares on the JSE on the day after the Unbundling Record Date, and the resultant cost apportionment ratio in which the cost incurred and/or the 1 October 2001 market value of the Remgro Shares must be allocated for taxation purposes (the "Apportionment Ratio") to the Trans Hex shares received in terms of the Unbundling and the Remgro Shares.



Apportionment ratio and closing share prices

Based on the closing share prices of a Remgro share and a Trans Hex share on the JSE on Monday, 13 September 2010 of R105.51 and R3.18, respectively, 0.176% of the cost and/or 1 October 2001 market value attributed to every 100 Remgro shares held by Remgro shareholders on the unbundling record date must be allocated to 5.85 Trans Hex shares (i.e. 0.03% per Trans Hex share) received in terms of the unbundling for purposes of section 46 of the Tax Act. Remgro shareholders must accordingly reduce the cost and/or 1 October 2001 market value attributed to every 100 Remgro shares by the amounts so allocated to the 5.85 Trans Hex shares received in terms of the unbundling. The potential South African taxation considerations for Remgro shareholders are set out in Annexure 5 of the circular. Should Remgro shareholders have any queries regarding the taxation consequences of the unbundling, it is advised that they obtain their own tax advice in this regard.

(Media Comment)
Finweek commented that Remgro would be greatly enhanced if it bought out minorities in companies the group already controlled. Remgro has the cash available to do since it sold its stake in Nampak, and chairman, Johann Rupert indicated that the company will not be making any sizeable new acquisitions. Potential minority buyouts could be Medi-Clinic Corporation Ltd, Rainbow Chicken Ltd, and maybe even Distell Group Ltd, if Remgro could persuade SABMiller plc and PSG Group Ltd to sell their stakes. Remgro already offers an entry point into attractive unlisted businesses such as Unilever SA, TSB Sugar and e-tv, among others.

Remgro announced the completion of the sale by way of an accelerated bookbuild of 78 096 694 Nampak Ltd ("Nampak") ordinary shares placed with qualifying institutional investors at a price of R17.40 per ordinary share (the "equity placing"). The equity placing was significantly oversubscribed with interest from both South African and international investors. Following the equity placing, Remgro do not hold any ordinary shares in Nampak. The sale price represents a discount of approximately 7.1% to the 60-day volume weighted average price of Nampak ordinary shares, as at 3 August 2010. The equity placing will settle on 12 August 2010 and Remgro will receive gross proceeds of R1 358.9 million.



Following from a review of its investments subsequent to the VenFin merger, Remgro decided to dispose of its 11.8% shareholding in Nampak, which has been identified as non-core. Remgro acquired its stake in Nampak as a result of its original 58% shareholding in Malbak (following a restructuring of Lenco Holdings), which was subsequently acquired by Nampak. The capital will be available for redeployment into assets which are more closely aligned with Remgro's investment strategy and in which Remgro has a higher degree of ownership and/or influence. Nampak released a trading update on SENS on 28 July 2010 indicating that operating profit for the year ending 30 September 2010 is expected to be between 130% and 150% higher than the previous year, while headline earnings per share is expected to be 70%-90% higher. Remgro supports the new management team and board at Nampak as well as their turnaround strategy, but wants to now focus on its core investments.

Remgro's wholly-owned subsidiary, InVenfin, has enjoyed some early successes with its initial investments, but analysts said in Business Report that the unit will make a negligible contribution to the overall group. Nevertheless InVenfin CEO, Brett Commaille, said InVenfin has done quite well from advertising firm, Ad Dynamo, and gaming platform, ChessCube and PSG Tanzanite analyst, Jan Mouton, commented that even though it may take time for InVenfin to deliver, the old VenFin did have a proven track record of delivery.

Remgro is currently finalising its results for the year ended 31 March 2010, which is due to be released on SENS on or about 21 June 2010. Shareholders are advised that Remgro's reported headline earnings per share ("HEPS") is expected to be between 28% and 32% lower than the HEPS of the comparative year ended 31 March 2009. This decrease in HEPS is mainly due to the unbundling of the investment in British American Tobacco Plc ("BAT") to Remgro shareholders as an interim dividend in specie on 3 November 2008 ("the BAT transaction"). As a result no income from BAT was accounted for during the year under review, while BAT was still being equity accounted for the seven months ended 31 October 2008 in the comparative year. HEPS from continuing operations, which excludes the equity accounted income of BAT, as well as all non-recurring costs relating to the BAT transaction, is not expected to differ by more than 20% from the HEPS of the comparative year ended 31 March 2009.

Shareholders of Capevin Investments Ltd ("Capevin") and Capevin Holdings are referred to the joint announcements published on SENS and in the press on 8 January 2010 and 26 January 2010, regarding the mandatory offers made by Zeder ("Zeder Investments Ltd") and Remgro (or any wholly owned subsidiary of Remgro nominated by it) ("the offeror companies") to the shareholders of Capevin (other than Remgro and its wholly owned subsidiaries) and Capevin Holdings (other than Zeder and Remgro International Holdings (Pty) Ltd), to acquire all of their ordinary shareholding in Capevin and Capevin Holdings ("the mandatory offers"). As set out in the joint announcement of 26 January 2010, the mandatory offers opened for acceptance on Monday, 25 January 2010 at 09:00 and closed on Friday 19 February 2010 at 12:00. Shareholders are reminded that all shares acquired in terms of the mandatory offers were to be allocated between the offeror companies on the following basis:

*all shares were to be acquired by Remgro (or any wholly owned subsidiary of Remgro nominated by it) until such time as the effective shareholding of Remgro (and its wholly owned subsidiaries) in Capevin Investments equaled that of Zeder on a "see-through" basis; and

*if and when Remgro achieved the level of effective shareholding in Capevin as described above, any remaining shares acquired in terms of the mandatory offers would be acquired in equal proportions by Remgro and Zeder.



Shareholders are advised that sufficient acceptances were not received in terms of the mandatory offers to enable Remgro to achieve the level of effective shareholding in Capevin referred to above and, as a result, all shares surrendered in terms of the mandatory offers. Shareholders are referred to the joint announcement of 26 January 2010, which sets out the manner of, and period within which, settlement of the offer consideration must be made.

Business Report noted that Remgro can expect to enjoy a good dose of dividends from companies housed within newly acquired VenFin. However, analysts say the returns will be miniscule compared with Remgro's existing underlying investments. One analyst commented that VenFin was not "a major company-changing acquisition as it only represented 10% of Remgro's current business."

Sales increased to R5.5 billion (R5.4 billion). Trading profit declined to R373 million (R433 million) and net profit attributable to equity holders decreased to R1.2 billion (R6.3 billion). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis fell to 275.3cps (856.7cps).



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 84cps has been declared.



Outlook

Tsb Sugar's results for the six month periods to 30 September are not necessarily a true reflection of the anticipated results for the year ending 31 March.



Wispeco faces significant price competition amongst local extruders which is placing operating margins under pressure.



At Business Partners, the cautious approach to investment activities will continue in the second half of the financial year, duly considering the impact on Business Partners' funding requirements, as well as developments in the South African economy. It is anticipated however, that the level of new investments during the second half of the current financial year will match those achieved in the first six months.



Total's capacity to finance development projects is reduced due to the economic recession, which leads to more selectivity in investment choices, whilst the company has also launched action plans to incur cost savings.



As for Air Products, the immediate outlook for volumes remains uncertain, but recent modest improvement in demand in certain areas provides reasonable prospects for moderate growth.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders of Remgro and VenFin are referred to the detailed terms announcement released by Remgro on SENS on 23 June 2009 and the firm intention announcement published by VenFin in the press on 24 June 2009, as well as to the circular to Remgro shareholders dated 24 July 2009 and the circular to VenFin ordinary shareholders dated 24 July 2009 regarding the proposed transaction.



In the announcements and the circulars it was indicated that Remgro and VenFin anticipated that all conditions precedent to the proposed transaction would be fulfilled by 16 October 2009. As at the date of this announcement, the only outstanding condition precedent to the proposed transaction is the approval of the proposed transaction by the competition authorities.



The competition commission has requested an extension of the time period allowed to it for the making of a recommendation to the competition tribunal regarding the proposed transaction and Remgro and VenFin agreed to grant such an extension. As a result of the granting of this extension it is unlikely that the outstanding condition precedent will be fulfilled by 16 October 2009. Remgro and VenFin have therefore agreed to extend the date for the fulfilment of this condition precedent to 15 December 2009, and the securities regulation panel has approved the granting of such an extension.



A further announcement regarding the anticipated timeline for the completion of the proposed transaction will be released on SENS and published in the press in due course once the competition authorities have ruled on the proposed transaction.

According to Finweek, Remgro seems to be taking a low-key liking to the building supplies sector. Despite Wispeco, an aluminium doors and windows specialist, ranking as one of Remgro's smallest investments at R350 million, the group may use it to build a meaningful presence in the niche building supplies industry. Wispeco acquired aluminium extrusion specialist Sheerline in early September 2009, and there are plenty of other opportunities around. This lends support to comments made by Remgro CEO Thys Visser that the group was positive about the infrastructure elements of the building supplies sector.

On 8 June 2009 Remgro and VenFin Ltd announced that they are engaged in discussions regarding a possible merger of the two companies. The boards of directors of the respective companies have proposed that the possible merger will be implemented on a net asset value (NAV) basis and will exclude VenFin's shareholding in Dimension Data Plc (Didata). Based on the NAV of Remgro and VenFin (excluding VenFin's shareholding in Didata) as at 5 June 2009, the agreed value date of the transaction, it is anticipated that VenFin shareholders will receive 1 Remgro share for every 6.25 VenFin shares held.

The boards of directors of Remgro and VenFin announced that they were engaged in discussions regarding a possible merger of the two companies. The boards have proposed that the possible merger will be implemented on a net asset value basis and will exclude VenFin's shareholding in Dimension Data Plc. Didata is VenFin's only significant interest in a listed company. Prior to the possible merger, VenFin's interest in Didata will be transferred to a new holding company, the shares of which will be held by VenFin shareholders pro rata to their shareholding in VenFin. Remgro and VenFin performed detailed valuations on the assets of the companies and arrived at the respective NAVs of Remgro and VenFin as at 5 June 2009. It was agreed that this date would be the value date for the transaction. Based on the NAV of Remgro and VenFin (excluding VenFin's shareholding in Didata) as at the value date, it is anticipated that VenFin shareholders will receive 1 Remgro share for every 6.25 VenFin shares held. This announcement does not constitute a firm intention by Remgro to make an offer for VenFin for the purposes of the Securities Regulation Code on Takeovers and Mergers. The decision to proceed with a merger is subject inter alia to Remgro and VenFin board approval. Any possible merger between the two companies will be subject to the successful fulfillment of further conditions precedent, including obtaining the support of Remgro and VenFin shareholders and all relevant regulatory approvals. A further announcement will be made in due course. No further comment will be made until the publication of this further announcement. Remgro and VenFin shareholders are advised to exercise caution when dealing in their securities until a further announcement is made.

According to Finweek, there have been suggestions that after the BAT and Reinet unbundling, Remgro has largely become an RMB/First Rand play. However, even though together they constitute Remgro's biggest portfolio investment at R16 billion, the group's industrial assets are worth roughly R23 billion. In addition, it is arguable that these assets are the most interesting part of the group, housing attractive unlisted investments. These include Total, Unilever and Air Products. Remgro is the only entry point into these companies.

Outlook

It is expected that Tsb Sugar's sugar production for the season will increase to 507 659 tons (478 643 tons). The export sugar price for the full year is expected to be higher than the previous year. In the current economic climate, Wispeco is placing increased emphasis on effective credit and inventory management, maximizing customer service and continuously improving productivity in all operating divisions. As a result of lower demand and continued productivity improvement, capacity expansion plans on the new Vereeniging property have been placed on hold.



The immediate outlook for Air Products remains positive although the rate of growth in demand is expected to slowdown as some industries experience a fall- out from lower commodity price levels and a decrease in local economic activity and export opportunities. At PGSI, the benefits of additional capacity will only come through after the routine repair of the first float line, scheduled from May to August 2009.

Remgro shareholders are referred to the circular dated 15 August 2008 regarding the distribution by Remgro, as an interim dividend in specie, of 192 870 000 ordinary shares in BAT and 302 555 410 Reinet depositary receipts to Remgro shareholders in proportion to their shareholding. The Remgro distribution was completed in terms of section 90 of the Companies Act, 1973 (Act 61 of 1973) to Remgro shareholders recorded as such in the shareholders register of Remgro on 3 November 2008 such that each Remgro shareholder received 40.6054 BAT shares and 63.6977 Reinet depositary receipts for every 100 Remgro shares held on the record date.



The purpose of this announcement is to advise Remgro shareholders on the apportionment of cost for South African taxation purposes in respect of the distribution by Remgro of BAT shares and Reinet depositary receipts to its shareholders. The capital gains base cost as a result of the Remgro distribution as mentioned in the circular, the Remgro distribution is a local dividend for South African tax purposes and should therefore be exempt from income tax in the hands of shareholders subject to South African tax. The dividend is subject to STC and therefore carries an STC credit in the hands of shareholders that are South African tax resident companies. If the Remgro shareholder's personal circumstances are such that the BAT ordinary shares and the Reinet depositary receipts are and will be held on capital account, the base cost of such shares and depositary receipts for capital gains tax purposes will be equal to their market value on Friday 31 October 2008, which was R266.21 per BAT share and R12.40 per Reinet depositary receipt. The capital gains tax base cost of the Remgro shares held by Remgro shareholders remains what it was before the in specie dividend. However, Remgro shareholders holding the Remgro shares on capital account who dispose of their Remgro shares within a period of two years from the date of receiving the in specie dividend from Remgro will be subject to the restrictions placed by the South African capital gains tax legislation on losses that can be claimed as a result of "extraordinary dividends". Should Remgro shareholders have any queries regarding the taxation consequences of the Remgro distribution and the calculation of the cost for taxation purposes, it is advisable to consult a tax advisor in this regard.

As set out in the circular to shareholders issued on 15 August 2008, and subject to shareholder approval at the general meeting of Remgro shareholders to be held on Thursday 7 October 2008, the current Remgro Share Trust and Remgro Share Scheme will be wound up and a new share appreciation rights ("SAR") scheme will be implemented. In order to mirror the scheme participants' exposure and vesting profile in respect of the current unvested Remgro share scheme shares, scheme participants will be granted SARs in Remgro ordinary shares. The number of SARs each director and the company secretary will be granted will be their exposure (based on the 5-day VWAP up to 27 October 2008, being the last day to trade, as defined in the circular to shareholders) divided by the grant price. The grant price will equal the closing price of Remgro on 3 November 2008, being the record date for the distribution as defined in the circular to shareholders.



The share appreciation rights may be exercised as follows:

*one third of the share appreciation rights granted may be exercised on or after

*the third anniversary of the date of grant;

*two thirds of the share appreciation rights granted may be exercised on or after

*the fourth anniversary of the date of grant; and

*after the fifth anniversary of the date of grant, all the share appreciation rights granted may be exercised, to the extent that they have not been exercised previously.

In terms of the SAR scheme rules the date of this grant will reflect the original grant date under the Remgro Share Scheme to ensure that the original vesting profile of the Remgro Share Scheme is retained.

(Media Comment)
Business Day and Business Report noted that Remgro had its biggest rise in six months on Friday, 8 August 2008, jumping 5.8%, or R10.82, to R197.00. The rise narrowed the discount to Remgro's book value, but the distribution of the group's stake in British American Tobacco plc ("BAT") will also attract more scrutiny of other investments. Pallavi Ambekar, a Coronation Fund Managers' portfolio manager, said that Remgro will now be under more pressure to replace the BAT holding. Remgro CE, Thys Visser, said Remgro's current investment strategy will be more focused now that it was left with a smaller portfolio.

Finweek reported that Remgro is now trading at a price showing a 25% discount in its net asset value. In addition, the effective discount on its South African assets is now close to 50%. The huge discount on assets such as FirstRand and RMBH could imply that South African shares still have a long way to fall and that without BAT Remgro does not hold anything of real value. Others say that Remgro should just get BAT's unbundling out of the way as quickly as possible.

(Media Comment)
Remgro's investment in US technology company Xiocom Wireless has raised questions as to what are the investment trust's intentions after the unbundling of its BAT stake. Usually, technology investment are done by its sister company VenFin, also controlled by the Rupert family, and Remgro has stuck to older economic sectors. Market watchers are also wondering if this is not a precursor to a merger between the two entities.

Due to the fact that comparative figures are not restated under the transitional provisions of IFRS 5, certain items are not directly comparable on a line-for-line basis with those of the previous financial year.



During the year under review various investee companies in the group concluded BEE transactions. The specific accounting treatment of these transactions impacted negatively on Remgro's headline earnings by R380 million (or 78.6cps) for the 2006 year. Total headline earnings for the year to 31 March 2006 increased by 1.7% from R4 998 million to R5 084 million. Headline earnings per share increased by 4.7% from 1 005.0c to 1 052.3c due to the favourable impact of the share repurchase programme.



Dividends

A final dividend of 228cps and a special dividend of 400cps have been declared in respect of both the ordinary shares of one cent each and the unlisted B ordinary shares of ten cents each, for the financial year ended 31 March 2006.

Further to the announcement dated 29 September 2005 and as referred to in the interim report of Remgro dated 24 November 2005, Remgro is pleased to announce that the necessary approval required for it to purchase 37% of the issued ordinary shares of KTI in equal shares from the Liberty Life and Nedbank groups has been obtained from the Competition Authorities thereby making the acquisition unconditional. The effective date of the acquisition is 1 August 2005.

On 24 November 2005 Remgro published its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2005 and its Report on Transition to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Attention was drawn to the fact that at that stage certain associated companies were not in a position to provide Remgro with the necessary IFRS information in order for Remgro to incorporate it in its financial results. This related to associated companies with later year-ends than Remgro, i.e. FirstRand Ltd and RMB Holdings Ltd (both June year-ends) and Nampak Ltd (September year-end). Due to the fact that those companies have later year-ends than Remgro, it resulted in their later implementation of IFRS. The JSE had granted Remgro exemption from complying with IFRS in respect of listed associated companies that had not yet published their restated IFRS results prior to Remgro releasing its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2005. The companies mentioned above have recently announced their results and restated IFRS information. Remgro has consequently revised its IFRS information which also has an impact on the reported interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2005.



Turnover increased by 5.57% to R6.95 billion (R6.58 billion) while headline earnings (excluding BEE costs) increased by 9.89% to R2.73 billion (R2.49 billion). Net Assets Value per share increased from 6371c to 7355c. An interim dividend of 133cps (116cps) has been declared.

Remgro has, subject to the necessary approval from the Competition Authorities, acquired 37% of the issued ordinary shares of KTI in equal shares from the Liberty Life and Nedbank groups for an aggregate consideration of R450m. The acquisition is effective from 1 August 2005.



KTI was formed in December 1993 by the Kagiso Trust as an investment vehicle to generate sustainable, long-term financial support to the Kagiso Trust for the purpose of community development and to achieve true economic empowerment through active, operational involvement in underlying strategic investments. Today, KTI is an investment holding company with assets in excess of R1.6bn that provides strategic and operational support to its partners. It adopts a proactive approach to investments, with a strong emphasis on business development and strategic positioning. Its current investment portfolio includes companies such as Kagiso Media (in which it has a 44% stake), Metropolitan Holdings, Waco Africa and Bytes SA.



KTI is an established empowered company with a sound investment track record, which, when combined with Remgro's business expertise, will create a value- enhancing partnership. The Board of Remgro believes that KTI has created an investment portfolio, and has an investment strategy, that is complementary to that of Remgro and which will appeal to the investment community. The acquisition will also crystallise the opportunity for Remgro and KTI to jointly pursue investment opportunities with their combined industry expertise, strengthened by the empowerment credentials of KTI.

Since announcing its annual results on 21 June 2005, the company has repurchased a further 5 187 563 ordinary shares.

The contribution of the financial services interests to Remgro`s headline earnings increased by 21.6% from R1.4bn in 2004 to R1.7bn. FirstRand and RMBH`s combined contribution to headline earnings amounted to R1.2bn (R976m), while Absa increased its contribution by 23.4% to R517m (R419m). The contribution of the industrial interests increased by 13.1%, mainly as a result of strong performances by Total South Africa, Distell and Medi-Clinic. This was however offset by lower results from Rainbow, Nampak, UBR and Transvaal Sugar. Mining interest`s contribution to headline earnings decreased by 41.3% to R101m. Trans Hex reported lower results and its contribution to headline earnings decreased to R29m (R79m). The group reported revenue of R12.8bn (R11.8bn) and a net profit after taxation of R8.8bn (R3.6bn). Headline earnings increased to 1002cps (931cps) and earnings rose to 1771cps (716cps). A dividend of 198cps (184cps) was declared for the period.



Remgro adopted AC 140 (IFRS 3), AC 128 (IAS 36) and AC 129 (IAS 38) with effect from 1 April 2004. In terms of these accounting standards goodwill is tested annually for any possible impairments, and for this purpose it is allocated to the different cash generating units to which it relates. Consequently goodwill attributable to investments in associated companies is reported under `Investments - Associated companies` in the 2005 annual financial statements while previously it was reported under `Goodwill and trade marks`. The comparative results have been restated accordingly.



Prospects

Local cash at the centre may increase substantially subsequent to year-end. Over and above normal cash flows from dividend income, the proceeds of the FirstRand transaction have already been received and those of the Absa and Sage transactions are receivable as soon as all conditions precedent are fulfilled. It is the board`s intention to also declare a special dividend of 600cps shortly after, and subject to, the Absa transaction being declared unconditional. The salient dates of the special dividend will then be announced on SENS and distributed to shareholders. On the assumption that the Absa transaction goes ahead and Remgro sells at least 60% of its Absa shares to Barclays, the group will still have sufficient cash resources to pursue further investment opportunities and to continue its share repurchase programme.
