(Official Notice)
RMH announced the second transaction in the execution of its property investment business that is set to expand alongside its current, single 34% investment in FirstRand Ltd. As a further step in the strategy of establishing a diversified portfolio of scalable entrepreneur-led businesses with proven track records in managing and building out property portfolios, RMH confirms its intention to make a 34% investment in leading South African urban renewal group, Propertuity Development Company (Propertuity).



Propertuity represents the first investment into RMH?s specialist portfolio that will focus on niche areas of the property sector. As communicated in the announcement on the Stock Exchange News Service on 3 May 2016, the specialist portfolio sits alongside RMH?s core property portfolio that will target the more traditional and larger areas of South African property. Atterbury is RMH?s key development partner in the core portfolio. The specialist portfolio will house best-of-breed specialist developers and managers focused on key niches in the property market. This portfolio is aimed at achieving higher yields and faster net asset value growth than the more traditional core portfolio.



As communicated previously, the overall RMH property strategy will focus on owner-managed businesses across a broader value chain in property. It will primarily target unlisted opportunities and will balance net asset value growth and yield. RMH will continue to follow a phased approach in acquiring its various property investments over the coming years. Shareholding in Propertuity post the transaction will consist of management (46%), RMH (34%) and Buffet Investments (20%). Buffet is an established property investor which has had significant success in backing entrepreneurial property investments.



Since its creation seven years ago, Propertuity has focused on the redevelopment of dilapidated industrial and office areas in Johannesburg and Durban. The group currently has around 50 properties in Johannesburg and 20 in Durban, with early entrance into the Pretoria CBD underway. The financial effects of this transaction will be immaterial on the financial results of RMH over the short to medium term. RMH intends to fund its investment into Propertuity through preference share funding. The successful conclusion of the investment into Propertuity is subject to regulatory and commercial approvals.

Dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross interim dividend of 142.0 cents per share payable out of income reserves, was declared on 8 March 2016 in respect of the six months ended 31 December 2015.



Prospects

Based on the FirstRand outlook and current macroeconomic conditions, the second half of the year will continue to be characterised by low GDP growth. As the SARB may have to increase rates again before the end of 2016, it will place further pressure on the South African consumer. Unemployment is trending upwards, with retrenchments increasing across a number of industry sectors. RMH remains positive, that due to FirstRand's strong balance sheet and the resilience and diversity of its diverse income streams, FirstRand will continue to deliver sustainable and superior returns to shareholders. This, in turn will allow RMH to deliver to its shareholders.



RMH continues to believe its investment in FirstRand provides it with a diversified and growing exposure to the South African banking and general financial services industries. The board continuously evaluates appropriate investment opportunities, which may include further exposure to FirstRand. However, the intention remains not to activate the portfolio on a general basis.

Income from operations rose to R7.9 billion (R6.4 billion). Net attributable profit increased to R7.8 billion (R6.3 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share was up to 508.5cps (454.7.6cps).



Dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross final dividend of 154.0 cents per share, payable out of income reserves, was declared on 11 September 2015 in respect of the year ended 30 June 2015.



Outlook

The year to June 2016 is expected to display more negative characteristics than the year under review:

*GDP will be lower due to both demand weakness and supply side constraints, particularly with regards to power.

*If the US recovery emerges as expected. The SA Reserve Bank may have to increase rates, which will place further pressure on the South African consumer.

*Unemployment is trending upwards, with retrenchments already announced in the mining and construction sectors.



Economic headwinds continue to increase and growth in the system is expected to be subdued. High levels of indebtedness remain in certain consumer segments. This means that advances growth will stay at current levels or decline and corporate activity is unlikely to pick up significantly. Regulatory changes will negatively impact the profitability of certain retail lending and transactional business lines.



RMBH is in agreement with FirstRand that its franchises have the appropriate strategies in place to produce resilient operational performances against this difficult economic backdrop. The strength of FirstRand's balance sheet and the resilience of its diverse income streams should allow FirstRand to continue to deliver sustainable and superior returns to shareholders.

Income from operations jumped to R3.5 billion (2013: R3.1 billion), profit for the period attributable to equity holders of the company went up by 13% to R3.4 billion (2013: R3 billion), while headline earnings per share shot up by 12% to 240.8cps (2013: 214.4cps).



Dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross interim dividend of 122.0 cents per share payable out of income reserves was declared on 6 March 2015 in respect of the six months ended 31 December 2014.



Outlook

GDP growth in the medium term is expected to increase but will remain below the trend. This is due to demand weakness and supply constraints, particularly where power is concerned. RMBH as well as FirstRand are not expecting a rate hike in the second half of its financial year, economic headwinds are increasing and growth remains subdued. High levels of indebtedness in certain consumer segments dictates that advances growth will remain at current levels and corporate activity is not expected to increase significantly. The fall in the oil price could positively impact consumer inflation and the impact could be observed as CPI dropped to 4.4% at the end of January 2015, the lowest level since April 2011.



RMBH believes that the FirstRand franchises have appropriate strategies in place to produce resilient operational performances against a difficult economic backdrop. The diverse income streams of FristRand in conjunction with RMBH's strong balance sheet should continue to deliver sustainable and superior returns to shareholders.

RMH believes that FirstRand's strategy to:

- drive non-interest revenue; and

- exercise discipline in its credit origination strategies in the retail market



will place FirstRand in a good position to weather the difficult credit cycle that is expected to continue to emerge over the next 12 to 18 months.



FirstRand's franchises have the appropriate strategies in place to continue to deliver good operational performance. FirstRand's balance sheet is strong and its diverse income streams should put it in a position to continue to deliver sustainable and superior returns to its equityholders.

RMBH considers Normalised EPS, which excludes non-operational items and accounting anomalies, as a more accurate indicator of its underlying operational performance. Shareholders were advised in March 2014 of changes in accounting policies as a result of the adoption of new and revised IFRS standards. These changes resulted in a restatement of the results for the prior year ended 30 June 2013. Such restated results are used as basis for the guidance set out below.



Guidance regarding RMBH's financial results for the year ended 30 June 2014 is as follows:

Year ended 30 June 2013 - Guidance for the year ended 30 June 2014:

* EPS(basic): 357.1 - 23% to 29% increase

Income from operations jumped to R3.1 billion (2012: R2.5 billion), profit for the period attributable to equity holders of the company went up by 26% to R3 billion (2012: R2.4 billion), while headline earnings per share shot up by 22% to 214.4cps (2012: 175.4cps).



Interim dividend

A gross interim dividend of 100cps payable out of income reserves was declared on 5 March 2014 in respect of the six months ended 31 December 2013.



Outlook

South Africa's dependence on foreign capital flows to fund the wide current account deficit continues to introduce uncertainty and vulnerability to the macroeconomic outlook. The recent increase in the repo rate is likely to be the first in an interest rate hiking cycle. This will place further pressure on the South African consumer. RMH believes that FirstRand's strategy to grow customers, drive non-interest revenue and exercise discipline in its credit origination strategies in the retail market, particularly over the past 18 months will place it in a strong position to weather what is expected to be a difficult domestic credit cycle. Good operational performances are expected from all three the major franchises for the second half of the year. From a shareholder perspective, we believe that all the strategic imperatives required to enable RMBH to continue to deliver real growth in earnings are in place.

Income from operations rose to R5 billion (R4.6 billion). Net attributable profit increased to R5 billion (R4.5 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share was up to 366.7cps (304.9cps).



Dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross final dividend of 104.5cps payable out of income reserves was declared on 11 September 2013 in respect of the year ended 30 June 2013.



Outlook

The group expects to continue good organic growth despite the difficult macroeconomic environment. FNB's focus on customer acquisition and drive for transactional volumes across all platforms should contribute positively to non-interest income growth, as will RMB's client activities locally and in the rest of Africa. Further investment in growth opportunities will place pressure on cost containment but sustained revenue should result in positive operating jaws. A further moderation in advances, new business volumes in the vehicles and asset finance and personal loans are expected. However, corporate advances will remain healthy.

RMBH's sole investment is its 34% interest in FirstRand Ltd. ("FirstRand"). Shareholders were referred to FirstRand's Trading Statement released on SENS earlier today, 3 September 2013 .

*EPS -- 318.7c; 9-13% increase

*Headline EPS -- 304.9c; 19-22% increase

*Normalised EPS -- 296.5c; 19-22% increase

Net income for the period was up by 16% to R2.5 billion (2011: R2.1 billion), while profit attributable to equity holders of RMBH rose by 16% to R2.4 billion (2011: R2.1 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per share grew by 28% to 174cps (2011: 135.6cps).



Interim cash dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross interim dividend of 66cps payable out of income reserves was declared on 6 March 2013 in respect of the six months ended 31 December 2012.



Outlook

The difficult macroeconomic environment is expected to continue for the rest of the financial year ending 30 June 2013. Despite this, the FirstRand group expects to continue to produce good organic growth.

*FNBs focus on customer acquisition and driving transactional revenues across its platforms will drive non-interest revenue (NIR) growth, as will RMBs client activities.

*With respect to advances growth, new business volumes in the retail lending books are expected to moderate in the second half, a trend that is already manifesting on a rolling six-month basis. Corporate advances are expected to remain robust at RMB.



FirstRands ongoing investment in stated growth opportunities will continue, which will result in cost pressure, although strong revenue growth should result in positive operating efficiencies. From a shareholder perspective we believe that all the strategic imperatives required to enable the group to continue to deliver real growth in earnings are in place. The information provided above is not an earnings forecast and has not been reviewed and reported on by the company's external auditors.

Results from operating activities rose 9% to R4.6 billion (R4.2 billion). Net attributable profit declined by 68% to R4.5 billion (R11.5 billion). In addition, Headline earnings per share from continuing operations was up 32% to 304.9cps (231.7cps).



Dividend

A final gross ordinary dividend of 73.5cps has been declared.



Outlook

The macro environment will remain challenging during the 2013 financial year. The global economy is likely to register below average growth and will continue to face significant downside risk. This will mean that economic activity in South Africa will remain under pressure. GDP growth is currently expected to be 2.5% for the 2013 financial year, and although interest rates are expected to remain flat for the rest of the year, there is downside risk if economic growth slows further.



Growth in retail advances is likely to remain subdued, with mortgage lending expected to continue to lag nominal GDP growth. In addition, given the high levels of recent growth in unsecured and

short-term advances in the system, this is also likely to moderate. Corporate lending is expected to remain muted as business confidence has not fully recovered. If, however, the proposed government

and public sector infrastructure plans are implemented, this may provide some underpin to growth in advances.



Within the context of these challenges, FirstRand expects to continue to produce good organic growth. Achieving revenue growth remains a challenge, but the FirstRand franchises have compelling

strategies to grow top line revenues. Achieving a sustainable ROE and cost-to-income ratio will remain a balancing act between investment and cost management.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders were reminded that during the last quarter of the financial year ended 30 June 2011 (the "prior year") RMBH completed a far-reaching restructuring, culminating in the distribution to shareholders of the group's insurance interests, now held by separately listed Rand Merchant Insurance Holdings Ltd. ("Rand Merchant Insurance").



After the restructuring, RMBH's sole remaining interest is its 34% stake in FirstRand Ltd. ("FirstRand"). As a result of the prior year restructuring:

*RMBH's EPS and HEPS for the prior year ended 30 June 2011, comprise the earnings of both its interest in FirstRand and its then wholly-owned subsidiary Rand Merchant Insurance; while

*for the current year ended 30 June 2012, RMBH's EPS and HEPS only reflect the outcome of its 34% interest in FirstRand.



Consequently, shareholders are advised that EPS for the year ended 30 June 2012 (which include both continuing and discontinued operations in the prior year result) is expected to decrease by between 60% and 70% from the 895.4 cents reported in 2011. HEPS is expected to increase by between 0% and 5% from the 294.4 cents reported in the prior year.



Normalised earnings for year-ended 30 June 2012

RMBH considers Normalised HEPS from continuing operations to most accurately represent operational performance for the year under review, as it gives appropriate recognition to the prior year restructuring. On this basis, shareholders are advised that Normalised HEPS for the year ended 30 June 2012 is expected to increase by between 20% and 25% from the 241.3 cents reported in 2011.



RMBH's results for the year ended 30 June 2012 is expected to be released on SENS on or about Wednesday, 12 September 2012.

Earnings guidance for six month ended 31 December 2011

Given the impact of the non-recurring prior period items and the changes in the interim to the group structure, shareholders are advised that the expected outcome for the six months ended 31 December 2011 is as follows:

*Headline earnings - includes both continuing and unbundled operations in prior period -- expected to decrease from 161cps for 2010 by between 12-20%

Shareholders were previously advised that:

*The Company`s associate, FirstRand Limited ("FirstRand") has unbundled its interest in MMI Holdings Limited ("MMI") to shareholders as a dividend in specie;

*RMBH has unbundled its interest in Rand Merchant Insurance Holdings Limited ("RMI Holdings") to shareholders as a dividend in specie; and that

*FirstRand has disposed of its 45% share in OUTsurance Holdings Limited (the "investment"), resulting in a significant gain on sale arising in its accounts.



Shareholders are advised that:

*The receipt by RMBH of MMI shares unbundled by FirstRand gives rise to once-off negative goodwill in the company.

*The RMI Holdings unbundling, which, in terms of "IFRIC 17: Distributions of Non-Cash Assets to Owners" is accounted for at fair value, gives rise to a significant non-recurring gain in the Company.

*Similarly, the gain on the sale of the investment by FirstRand also gives rise to a significant non-recurring gain in the company.



All these gains impacts RMBH`s basic earnings per share. In compliance with the Listing Requirements of the JSE Limited, shareholders are advised that RMBH`s basic earnings per share for the year ended 30 June 2011 is expected to be between 870 cents and 930 cents per share (2010: 300.8 cents). As the gains did not arise from the performance of the RMBH's ongoing operations, they do not impact either headline earnings per share (2010: 299.8 cents) or normalised earnings per share (2010: 295.0 cents) for the year.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the company's independent auditors. Details of RMBH`s results for the financial year ending on 30 June 2011 are expected to be released on SENS and published in the press on or about 14 September 2011.

(Official Notice)
During the interim reporting period ended 31 December 2010, the company's associate, FirstRand Ltd distributed its interest in MMI Holdings Ltd ("MMI") to shareholders as a dividend in specie. This resulted in MMI becoming a directly held associate of RMBH. In addition, another RMBH associate, Discovery Holdings Limited concluded a business combination whereby it acquired the Standard Life Healthcare group and merged that with the PruHealth Group (Discovery's UK based joint venture).



Accounting for these transactions in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards gives rise to significant non-recurring gains in the RMBH accounts. While such gains did not arise from the performance of RMBH's ongoing operations and are accordingly excluded from headline earnings per share (as well as normalised earnings per share), they do impact basic earnings per share. In compliance with the Listing Requirements of the JSE Ltd, RMBH shareholders are advised that basic earnings per share ("EPS") for the six months ended 31 December 2010 will increase by between 100% and 120% over the EPS of the previous corresponding reporting period. RMBH's interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2010 will be released on SENS on or about 9 March 2011.

(Media Comment)
The proposed unbundling of the merged Momentum and Metropolitan Holdings Ltd ("Metropolitan") life assurance group by RMB Holdings could lead to more that just the unlocking of shareholder value. A Finweek article said the merged entity, to be known as "MMI Holdings Ltd" ("MMI"), could be bought by a foreign player. Senior management at Metropolitan have admitted that a takeover by a foreign company is a possibility. There is also some speculation that Remgro Ltd might have a hand in whatever is being cooked up. MMI's attraction to foreigners would be clear. The merged group will be a useful entry point into Africa and is strong in South Africa.

In light of the proposed MMI transaction, RMBH has informed shareholders that RMBH is exploring a number of consequential restructuring steps to realign its investment portfolio and to enhance value for RMBH shareholders. The steps being explored as part of this restructuring include the appropriateness of a separation of RMBH's insurance and banking interests into separately listed entities and possibly increasing RMBH's interest in MMI. While the company has made significant progress in its discussions regarding the proposed restructuring of RMBH, it is not yet appropriate to make a more detailed announcement in this regard. RMBH shareholders should therefore exercise caution when dealing in RMBH shares until further announcements in this regard are made.

Dividend

Outlook

The group anticipates a modest return to growth in the South African economy, driven mainly by further investment by government and some improvement in consumption levels. At the FirstRand Banking Group, the modest return to growth in the South African economy will not drive significant growth in advances, as levels of consumer indebtedness are still at historic highs. However, the banking franchises are expected to benefit from the increased economic activity. Some risks remain in the corporate sector, however the balance sheets have proved to be extremely resilient in this cycle and whilst significant defaults are unlikely, business volumes overall will remain subdued. The recovery in equity markets is expected to continue to benefit Momentum. However, given that the recovery appears to be gradual, pressure on disposable income will remain.



Discovery is well positioned for future growth and opportunities. The OUTsurance Group's South African business is well positioned, profitable and adequately capitalised. Its Australian initiative is performing better than initially projected. The greater RMBH Group continues to focus on protecting its origination franchises and balance sheets to ensure it is optimally positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities as they arise, particularly as the negative credit cycle reverses.

Prospects

At present the world is a very bleak place. The macro outlook globally is expected to deteriorate further. The world is experiencing the worst recession since World War 2 and expectations for global growth have reduced from 2% to 0.5%. The current consensus view for the macro scenario in South Africa is that growth is expected to slow from 3% last year to 0.5% in 2009.



Whilst South Africa is experiencing a severe cyclical downturn in asset quality, there are no structural asset quality issues. Asset quality deterioration and bad debts are in line with expectations given the cycle. However, whilst interest rates have probably peaked, the deterioration in the credit cycle will continue into 2009. It is likely that the international credit crisis will impact on our domestic economy resulting in further job losses and continued declines in asset values.



The South African consumer will remain under pressure despite the recent easing of interest rates, and therefore volumes in the retail segment will continue to decline and bad debts rise. In the corporate segment there is increased risk of default in certain counters, either those exposed to the consumer cycle or those with leveraged balance sheets.



Against what can only be described as a very challenging backdrop, the greater RMBH group continues to focus on protecting its origination franchises and balance sheets to ensure it is optimally positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities as they arise, particularly as the negative credit cycle reverses. Given the relative size of FirstRand in the greater group, it is likely that the outcome projected by FirstRand for the year ending 30 June 2009 will largely flow through to that of the RMBH group. However, management must caution that a major dislocation in international markets that spills over into the local economy, could upset this outcome.

In that announcement FirstRand indicates that an already challenging macro environment, both domestically and globally, is playing out more negatively than expected.



RMBH earnings guidance

As its investment in FirstRand produces the bulk of RMBH's earnings, it is anticipated that the impact outlined in FirstRand's trading statement will, to a large extent, flow through into RMBH's results for the half year to 31 December 2008 and for the year ending 30 June 2009. RMBH's other investments have in the main performed in line with the guidance given to shareholders at the time of publishing the company's 2008 annual report in middle September 2008.



However, the bespoke portfolio of emerging market financial shares in which RMBH has invested and which is managed on RMBH's behalf by a leading independent manager, did not escape the upheaval in international markets during October 2008. In the process the portfolio, which was valued at R650 million at the beginning of the financial year, lost some R250 million of its value. Should current market conditions persist to the 31 December 2008 reporting date, this loss will need to be recorded in the portfolio for the six month period. The existence of the portfolio and its composition is continuously evaluated and refined.



This loss and, to a lesser extent, the cost of the funding raised and shares issued by RMBH to fund the acquisition of our additional interest in Discovery during November 2007, as well as the random impact of treasury share eliminations, will have a further dampening effect on RMBH's results.



Barring unforeseen circumstances, RMBH's results for the full year to 30 June 2009 should follow the trend projected by FirstRand. Details of RMBH's interim results for the six months ending on 31 December 2008 are expected to be released on SENS and published in the press on or about 11 March 2009.

Notice of the annual general meeting

Notice was given that the 21st annual general meeting of RMBH shareholders will be held at 9:00 on Friday 28 November 2008 in the Executive Boardroom, 4th Floor, 4 Merchant Place, Corner Fredman Drive and Rivonia Road, Sandton to transact the business as stated in the annual general meeting notice forming part of the annual financial statements.

The insurance businesses showed good earnings growth despite tough conditions characterised by lower equity markets and increased interest rates. Given group practice to invest significantly all of the capital deployed in RMB's assurers in cash and near-cash instruments, they were largely spared the capital decay experienced by their peer group. In the main, the group was able to avoid the contagion arising from this unsettled financial environment. Net profit for the year remained relatively stable at R4.35 billion (R4.37 billion) with headline earnings decreasing by 4.77% to R3.71 billion (R3.9 billion).



Dividend

The board has resolved to declare a final dividend of 72.5cps.



Outlook

Management expect that global and local capital markets will continue to see unusually high levels of uncertainty and conditions for the South African consumer will remain difficult. It is anticipated that credit market conditions will continue to be challenging. Factors such as the impact of the recent electricity price increases and the new municipal rates structures currently being introduced will add further pressure to consumers' cash flow.

Shareholders are referred to the voluntary trading update issued by the company's associate FirstRand Ltd ("FirstRand"). In that update, FirstRand advises that a deteriorating macro environment, both domestically and globally, has resulted in a more challenging operating environment for its banking businesses. In particular:



Its retail banking franchises are experiencing the effects of a tough consumer cycle, with retail lending continuing to slow down and impairment levels increasing, particularly at FNB HomeLoans, FNB Card and WesBank. While its corporate franchises continue to experience strong organic growth, RMB's international Equities Trading portfolio incurred further losses during the second half of the financial year. Notwithstanding, RMB is expected to produce strong (all be it reduced) profitability in the current year. FirstRand's insurance subsidiary, Momentum Group, is expected to meet its earnings growth target.



FirstRand advises that the combination of increases in bad debt levels and the further losses in the international equities trading portfolio will impact the group's earnings for the financial year to 30 June 2008. Accordingly, FirstRand expects 2008 normalised earnings to be similar to year ended 30 June 2007. As its investment in FirstRand produces the bulk of RMBH's earnings, it is anticipated that the impact outlined in FirstRand's updated trading statement will, to a large extent, flow through into RMBH's results for the year ended 30 June 2008.



RMBH expects that normalised earnings for the year to 30 June 2008 to be similar to that achieved in 2007 (R3 984 million or 335.4cps). In the face of the challenging environment encountered, this anticipated outcome does underscore the inherent resilience of RMBH's portfolio of financial services franchises. The group expects that over the medium term earnings growth will trend back to an acceptable real growth rate. The financial information on which this voluntary trading update is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the company's external auditors. Details of RMBH's results for the financial year ending on 30 June 2008 are expected to be released on SENS and published in the press on or about 17 September 2008.

Operating profit rose 25% to R2.7 billion (R2.2 billion) for the six months to 31 December 2007. Attributable profit for the period was up 21% to R2.2 billion (2006: R1.9 billion) and headline earnings per grew 25% to 179.2cps (143.4cps).



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 69cps (61.5cps) has been declared.



Outlook

RMBH anticipates that, given the continuing volatility in global and local capital markets, combined with rising inflation and high interest rates, the second half of the financial year will continue to represent a challenging operating environment. Against this background, the group is cautious regarding earnings prospects for the year to June 2008. In the context of the group's banking interests:

*consumer spending and credit extension are expected to slow down further and bad debts are likely to increase.

*the corporate sector is expected to remain resilient due to anticipated public sector investment and private fixed investment. However, trading activities may continue to be impacted by market turmoil and uncertainty.

Given the diversity of the group's banking portfolio, RMB and FNB will benefit from their strong franchises within the corporate and commercial segments. However, with the current levels of consumer indebtedness, the retail segments will face significant headwinds. The increased volatility in equity markets together with some economic slowdown could impact on the insurance interests in the second half. However, new business prospects combined with new growth initiatives should continue to positively impact earnings.



RMBH believes that:

*given the pressures facing the group's businesses in the second half;

*combined with the significant earnings base created in the year to 30 June 2007 (33% growth), it will be unlikely that RMBH will meet its targeted growth in earnings of 10% above inflation in the current financial year.

RMBH anticipates that, given the quality of its franchises and the diversified nature of the group's portfolio, over the medium term earnings will trend back to the stated target.

Shareholders are referred to the voluntary trading update issued by the company on 1 February 2008. In that update, shareholders were advised that RMBH expects its normalised earnings for the six months ended 31 December 2007 to exceed that of the preceding comparative period by between 9% and 14%. The company still expects this operational outcome to arise. The RMBH group views normalised earnings as a purer indicator of the underlying operational performance of the group, as it eliminates the accounting anomalies and non-operational factors arising from the prescribed application of IFRS to the manner in which attributable and headline earnings have to be calculated. Attributable earnings and attributable earnings per share will exceed that of the preceding comparative period by between 20% and 23%; and after taking cognisance of the prior period restatement recorded above, headline earnings and headline earnings per share will exceed that of the preceding comparative period by between 24% and 28%.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the statement issued on SENS by the company's associate FirstRand Ltd ("FirstRand") earlier today (4 May 2006). In that announcement, FirstRand advised that the calculation of its headline earnings per share going forward will be affected by the application of a new interpretation of the Accounting Practices Committee (the "APC") of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants ("SAICA"). This new interpretation by the APC requires that profits or losses on the realisation of equity accounted private equity investments be excluded from the calculation of headline earnings.



FirstRand does not agree with the interpretation by the APC with respect to equity accounted private equity investments. FirstRand believes that this interpretation contradicts the objective of calculating headline earnings, which exclude profits and losses on disposal of businesses, in the context of a private equity business. RMBH agrees with and supports FirstRand's contentions regarding the APC's new interpretation.



FirstRand states that this new interpretation by the APC will impact its headline earnings and headline earnings per share going forward. In addition to disclosing headline earnings on the basis required by SAICA, FirstRand will continue to disclose normalised headline earnings and normalised headline earnings per share information, which includes the profits or losses on disposal of private equity investments. Furthermore, FirstRand will continue with its policy of using normalised headline earnings as the basis for determining dividend payments.



Impact on RMBH

As its investment in FirstRand produces the bulk of RMBH's earnings, it is anticipated that the impact outlined in FirstRand's statement will, to a large extent, flow through to RMBH's results.

RMBH is the holding company of FirstRand group, Discovery group, OUTsurance, RMB Structured Insurance ("RMBSI") and Glenrand M.I.B. Over the six-month period to 31 December 2005 FirstRand grew its operational earnings by mote than 19%; OUTsurance increased its headline earnings by 43%; and RMBSI grew headline earnings by 32%. At the RMBH level headline earnings per share grew by more than16% to 121c (104c). Given the strong underlying operational trend reflected by the group's headline earnings, RMBH declared an interim dividend of 50.5c per share representing an increase of 20% and a dividend cover ratio (on headline earnings) of 2.4 times.



RMBH has warned that the transition to IFRS and a number of non-recurring events both in the current period and the prior periods (including Momentum's settlement with the National Treasury, the 100c per share extraordinary return of capital to RMBH shareholders plus the FirstRand and RMBSI BEE transactions, which decreased RMBH's effective interest in those groups) have the potential to cloud the progression from a strong operational trend to reported headline earnings.

As its investment in FirstRand produces the bulk of RMBH`s earnings, it is anticipated that the impact outlined in FirstRand`s updated trading statement will, to a large extent, flow through into RMBH`s results for the year ended 30 June 2005. RMBH disposed of 7.6% of its interest in FirstRand as part of the FirstRand BEE transaction and realised a net gain on disposal of R554 million. Such amount, while not included in headline earnings, forms part of RMBH`s attributable earnings for the year. The group expects that headline earnings per share for the year ended 30 June 2005 will exceed that of the prior year by between 25% and 35%, while attributable earnings per share for the year ended 30 June 2005 will exceed that of the prior year by between 65% and 75%.

Shareholders are referred to the trading statement issued by the company`s associate FirstRand Ltd (`FirstRand`) on 2 June 2005. In that announcement FirstRand advised that its headline earnings per share (which includes translation gains or losses); as well as its fully diluted headline earnings per share for the financial year ending 30 June 2005 are expected to exceed the comparative period by between 20% and 25%. FirstRand reported that this is primarily due to its businesses benefiting from the favourable operating environment for financial services; and that the significant currency translation loss incurred during the 2004 financial year is not expected to re-occur in the 2005 financial year, given the current rand : US dollar exchange rate. FirstRand has previously announced that it had disposed of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Ansbacher Holdings Ltd, during the year under review. Included in FirstRand`s attributable earnings is a transfer from currency translation reserves of R396 million arising from the disposal. This amount is excluded from the calculation of its headline earnings. As a consequence, FirstRand`s attributable earnings will exceed that of the corresponding reporting period by between 25% and 30%.



As its investment in FirstRand produces the bulk of RMBH`s earnings, it is anticipated that the impact outlined in FirstRand`s trading statement will, to a large extent, flow through into RMBH`s results for the year ended 30 June 2005. The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the company`s auditors. Full details of RMBH`s financial results is expected to be released on SENS on 21 September 2005 and published in the press on 22 September 2005.

RMH?s primary interest for 2017 was its 34.1% investment in FirstRand, one of South Africa?s pre-eminent banking groups. In May 2016 RMH announced that it was expanding its strategy to include a property investment business. This new strategy meets our stated objective of creating shareholder value and further diversifies RMH?s earnings base so that RMH will invest across the breadth of the property value chain. In line with RMH?s history and ethos, the focus will be on entrepreneurial and owner-managed businesses. The strategy will involve investing in physical property portfolios as well as vertically integrated property companies, specifically with internal management teams that offer asset management, development management and property management skills. In execution of this strategy, three investments were made:



It was proposed to restructure the RMH group by means of:

* The establishment of a wholly-owned treasury company, namely RMH Treasury Company (Pty) Ltd., for purposes of raising funds for investment activities; and

* The establishment of a wholly-owned investment holding company, namely RMH Asset Holding Company (Pty) Ltd., for purposes of housing RMH?s equity investments, including RMH?s current direct interest of 34.1 per cent in FirstRand?s issued share capital and the existing and planned property investments, in ring-fenced holding companies.



The new group structure was achieved by means of implementation of various asset-for-share transactions, in terms of section 42 of the Income Tax Act, 58 of 1962 and at fair value for accounting purposes. The process was completed on 12 June 2017.
