Company prospects

Retail (Queenspark)

Queenspark is making progress on its strategic initiatives to build new channels of growth and increase brand awareness. The introduction of third party brands has been well received by the customer and our new house brands continue to grow and complement our existing ranges. Customer relationship management has been, and continues to be, a major focus, and we are beginning to reap the rewards of enhanced customer knowledge and understanding. The introduction of lay-by as a form of payment has been well received and continues to gain traction. We will continue to open new stores that are considered feasible, with a view to expanding our footprint both in South Africa and Namibia.



The first seven weeks of the new financial year have exceeded management's expectations and whilst we are fully aware that we are trading in difficult economic times, we remain confident in our future and in our ability to deliver sustainable growth and value creation for shareholders.



Property

Rex has the intention to develop two further properties in the medium term, both situated in the Cape Town area, and is continuing to consider development options in this regard. One of the undeveloped properties is classified as a heritage site which will limit development opportunities and has caused a delay in the development process.

Prospects

Retail (Queenspark)

Initiatives being considered and introduced mainly focus on turnover growth and are predominantly aimed at improving the performance over the medium to long term. The recent implementation of the ERP system is expected to provide benefits in the 2017 financial year and thereafter.

* the main reason for the larger percentage difference in Rex Trueform?s headline earnings per share for the six months ended 31 December 2015 as opposed to the percentage difference in its basic earnings per share for the same period, is that the once-off profit from the sale of a property by Rex Trueform in the previous corresponding period was taken into account for the purposes of calculating its basic earnings per share in this period, but was not taken into account in the calculation of Rex Trueform?s headline earnings per share for such period.

Prospects

Retail segment

Retail sales in the second half of the year are traditionally lower than the first half. This, together with electricity loadshedding and increased competition, is expected to constrain profit growth during the six months ending June 2015.



In order to grow turnover in the 2016 year and beyond the company is to introduce initiatives to increase the turnover of the existing store base, and increase the Queenspark footprint within South Africa by the roll-out of further stores.



The implementation of the enterprise resource planning ("ERP") software, once complete, will also provide future benefits to the business.



Property segment

The RTOP is located in a vibrant area within Salt River (Cape Town). In close proximity to this building are two other group-owned properties, which have development potential. Feasibilities in respect of these properties are to be prepared in due course. The one property is classified as an important Heritage site, which limits the development opportunities, and will cause a delay in the development process.

Dividend

The board is not proposing dividends in respect of the ordinary and "N" ordinary shares in the 2014 financial year.



Prospects

Retail segment

The group has plans to roll out further stores to capture new markets and improve returns. Initiatives introduced will improve the gross margin, which has been evidenced by the first nine weeks of the new trading year. The planned closure of the impaired unprofitable stores, and further cost management initiatives, will also add to the improved performance of the segment.



Another initiative to positively impact the business will be the implementation of the enterprise resource planning ("ERP") software in the 2015 financial year. The benefits to be gained there from will commence in the 2015 financial year, however the major benefits will be realised in the years thereafter.



The business is looking to increase its footprint in Africa in the medium to long term and has recently opened its first franchise store in Kenya. The segment is expected to perform better going forward and the objective is to return the segment to profitability in the 2015 financial year.



Property segment

The value of the group's property portfolio will increase in the future in light of the fact that the RTOP development will be completed during the 2015 financial year. The group holds other properties which have future development potential.



The RTOP is located in a vibrant area within Salt River (Cape Town) and provides approximately 11 700 square metres of office space. As at June 2014 agreements had been entered into to let approximately 90% of the office space, inclusive of space let to Queenspark. The remaining unlet office space is expected to be let during the 2015 financial year. Management is pleased with the progress made on the project.



The group is to prepare development feasibilities during the forthcoming year in respect of other properties owned by the group.

(C)
Turnover was up by 4.9% to R280.9 million (R267.7 million) and gross profit improved by 5.2% to R153.2 million (R145.7 million).

Results of annual general meeting.

Shareholders are advised that, at the annual general meeting of Rex Trueform shareholders held in Cape Town on 16 November 2011 ("the AGM"), all resolutions as contained in the notice of the AGM dated 19 September 2011 were passed by the requisite majority.



Approval of dividends declared

At the AGM, shareholders approved dividend number 67 of 52,0 cents per ordinary share and dividend number 17 of 52,0 cents per "N" ordinary share for the year ended 30 June 2011.



The salient dates of the above dividends are as follows:

*Last day to trade Friday, 2 December 2011

*Shares trade ex-dividend Monday, 5 December 2011

*Record date Friday, 9 December 2011

*Payment date Monday, 12 December 2011



Share certificates may not be dematerialised or rematerialised between Monday, 5 December 2011 and Friday, 9 December 2011, both days inclusive.
16-Nov-2011
(Official Notice)
The company advised that total group turnover for the period 1 July 2011 to 31 October 2011 decreased by 2.5%. This decrease in turnover is largely a result of the discontinued manufacturing operation which ceased on 30 June 2011. Retail sales from continuing operations (Queenspark) were impacted by the closure of three non-performing stores during the past twelve month period which contributed to a decrease of 1.4% in retail trading space relative to the prior corresponding period. This restricted retail sales from continuing operations to an increase of 4.9% for the first four months of the 2012 financial year. However, due to the withdrawal of the Duty Credit Certificate (DCC) benefits, profits for the first half of the 2012 financial year are expected to be negatively impacted.



Shareholders are referred to the comments in the 2011 integrated annual report regarding the negative impact which the withdrawal of the DCC will have on operating profit in the current (2012) financial year. In the 2011 financial year the retail segment operating profit was improved by an amount of R14.3 million in this regard. Rex True further anticipate that in the second half of the financial year there will be a deterioration in margins due to escalating expenses and currency volatility which we anticipate will negatively impact profits in respect of that period. This is in addition to the negative impact of the withdrawal of the DCC noted above. The interim results for the six month period ending December 2011 are scheduled for release in March 2012.
29-Sep-2011
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the company?s integrated annual report, incorporating the audited financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2011, was dispatched today and other than items in the balance sheet, contains no changes to the reviewed results which were announced on SENS on Thursday, 8 September 2011.



In the reviewed results previously published the deferred taxation liability was netted off against the deferred taxation asset resulting in only a deferred taxation asset being shown. As disclosed above, these have now been separated into their respective components and shown as separate line items. This adjustment is simply an allocation adjustment and has no impact on the net asset value previously published as per the reviewed results. The statement of cash flows has had an amount of R219 000 (2010: R109 000) reclassified to "operating profit before working capital changes" from "working capital changes" within the statement of cash flows. This adjustment is simply an allocation adjustment and has no impact on "cash and cash equivalents at the end of the year". The depreciation and amortisation figure contained in the segmental report had a rounding error of R1 000 which has now been corrected.



Notice of AGM

The integrated annual report contains a notice of annual general Meeting for the company, which will be held in the boardroom at Rex Buildings, 263 Victoria Road, Salt River, Cape Town, at 10h00 on Wednesday, 16 November 2011.
08-Sep-2011
(C)
Revenue from continuing operations increased to R518.8 million (R471.1 million), and gross profit rose to R286.1 million (R260.2 million). Operating profit increased to R44.4 million (R38.4 million). Net attributable profit improved to R39.9 million (R30.5 million). In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations grew to 183.5cps (159.8cps).



Dividend

The board is recommending to shareholders that the dividend on the ordinary and 'N' ordinary shares be increased to 52cps. This will result in a dividend cover of 3.8 times.



Shareholders will be asked to consider and approve the directors' dividend recommendation at the annual general meeting of the company to be held on 16 November 2011. An announcement detailing the terms of the dividend declaration will be made immediately following the annual general meeting.



Outlook

It is likely that the South African economy will be faced with slower growth and higher inflation during the remainder of the current year. This scenario will result in extended low levels of confidence in consumers as they continue to feel the effects of a depressed economy. The group benefited in the 2011 and prior financial years from the Duty Credit Certificate Scheme. This benefit ceased during the course of last year and as a result there will be a materially negative impact on operating profit in the 2012 financial year. Although Queenspark is presently experiencing a reasonable level of acceptance of its current ranges in stores, we anticipate the achievement of turnover and profit targets will remain challenging.

(C)
Revenue increased by 17.7% to R290.3 million (2009: R246.7 million). Operating profit increased by 54.2% to R27.3 million (2009: R17.7 million) as a result of better performance by the group's core retail activities and an improvement in the contribution of the manufacturing and property segments of the group compared to last year. As a result earnings per share increased by 46.0% to 106.7 cents (2009: 73.1 cents). Headline earnings per share increased by 46.2% to 106.7 cents (2009: 73.0 cents).



Dividend

No interim dividend has been declared for the period under review.



Prospects

Although the six months under review reflected some recovery in consumer confidence, particularly in Queenspark's niche retail market, it is expected that the second half of the current financial year will not provide the same level of growth as achieved during this first half to December 2010. In particular, the material benefits provided by the Duty Credit Certificate Scheme are now no longer available from the beginning of January and this, together with expected inflationary pressures, will result in pressure on margins. Queenspark continues to focus on initiatives to further strengthen and consolidate its position in the market-place through the opening of new stores, upgrades of existing stores and improvements in its product offering. The achievement of sales and profit targets will, however, remain challenging during the remainder of the current financial year. Signed on behalf of the board

Revenue declined to R491 million (R503 million), but gross profit rose to R258.9 million (R216.3 million). Operating profit increased to R36.9 million (R27.2 million). Net attributable profit improved to R30.5 million (R25.6 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew to 154.5cps (124.1cps).



Dividend

The board is recommending to shareholders that the dividend on the ordinary and 'N' ordinary shares be increased to 40 cents per share. This will result in a dividend cover of 3.9 times (based on headline earnings).



Outlook

Four new retail stores were opened by Queenspark during last year. The full benefit of these together with store refurbishments and relocations will reflect in performance in the coming year. Queenspark's seasonal ranges currently in stores are receiving a high level of acceptance. Turnover for the first eight weeks of the new financial year was more than 13% improved on last year.

08 Mar 2010 12:50:33
(C)
Turnover declined to R242 million (2008:R250 million). Operating profit increased by 19.9% to R17.7 million (2008:R14.8 million) as a result of an improved performance by the Queenspark retail segment. Earnings per share amounted to 73.1 cents, compared to 66.2 cents last year, an improvement of 10.4%. Headline earnings per share improved by 11.8% to 73.0 cents compared with 65.3 cents per share last year.



Prospects

Retail performance remains affected by the depressed incomes, rising costs and low confidence levels of consumers. The costs associated with running the business, particularly energy costs also continue to rise. The manufacturing segment will also continue to present a challenge. Past performance benefited materially from the Duty Credit Certificate Scheme which is to be completely phased out in the near future.



Current strategy is directed at strengthening Queenspark's position in the market-place through growth of the store base, store upgrades and a renewed focus on the product offering. The depressed economic conditions are expected to continue well into 2010 and the achievement of sales and profit targets will remain challenging.

Revenue increased from R465.5 million to R502.7 million in 2009. Gross profit rose to R216.2 million (2008:R206.8 million) and operating profit decreased to R27.1 million (2008:R37.6 million). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders decreased to R25.5 million (R38.7million). Headline earnings on a per share basis decreased to 124.10cps (186.40cps).



Dividends per share

The board is recommending to shareholders that the dividend on the ordinary and 'N' ordinary shares be maintained at 35 cps. This will result in a dividend cover of 3,5 times. Shareholders will be asked to consider, and if deemed fit, approve the directors' dividend recommendation at the annual general meeting of the company to be held on 11 November 2009. An announcement detailing the terms of the dividend declaration will be made immediately following the annual general meeting.



Prospects

Four new stores were opened during the year. A further four stores will open before December 2009. Although turnover for the first two months of the new financial year is marginally improved on last year it is too early to gauge how the summer season will develop. Depressed retail conditions are expected to continue, however, for at least the remainder of 2009 calendar year, and the achievement of sales targets will remain challenging. Earnings benefited materially from the Duty Credit Certificate Scheme operated by the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa. The long term sustainability of these benefits is uncertain.

(Media Comment)
Finweek reported that Rex True's Queenspark may be smaller than its retailing rivals, but it has carved a valuable niche for itself in the middle to upper fashion markets. It could even be stealing more market share from Woolworths than Foschini and Truworths. However, there is some concern that the company is being run too conservatively. This may be because Rex True is a family-owned business and has to look after its cash flows carefully. Nevertheless, maybe some bigger competitors would be interested in buying out the Shub family, but as Finweek asks, at what price?

(C)
Group revenue increased by 15.8% to R256.2 million despite the more difficult trading environment. Operating profit increased to R14.8 million which is an improvement of 11.7% over the corresponding period of last year. The resultant earnings amount to 66.2cps (58.8cps last year) an improvement of 12.6%. Headline earnings amount to 65.3cps compared with 54.0cps last year an improvement of 20.9%.



Prospects

The trading environment remains difficult as the down-turn in consumer demand takes greater effect. As a consequence the second half-year performance presents a considerable challenge and will moderate the results for the full financial year to June 2009.

Revenue increased by 17.2% to R465.5 million and the gross margin improved from 43.6% to 45,.%. All segments of the group produced better results aggregating in an after-tax profit of R38,8 million which is an improvement of 154.6% on last year. Earnings were further boosted by the curtailment of provisions, higher interest earnings, profit on the realisation of our interest in the Australian associate and a lower taxation charge. The latter is the result of an increase in the deferred tax asset during the year, due to previously assessed losses which are now expected to be utilised in full in future years. Headline earnings improved by 147.7% to 186.5 cents per share. Earnings have increased by 152.8% to 190.4 cents per share.



Dividend

The board is recommending to shareholders that the dividend on the ordinary and `N` ordinary shares be increased to 35.0 cents per share. This will result in a dividend cover of 5.3 times. Shareholders will be asked to consider, and if deemed fit, approve the directors` dividend recommendation at the annual general meeting of the company to be held on 12 November 2008.

Prospects

Queenspark`s Spring/Summer range, presently in stores, has been well received by customers. The economic cycle will inevitably continue to slow down and the remainder of the current period is likely to be challenging with high interest rates, increased energy costs and food inflation having a dampening effect on consumer spending. The group continues to invest selectively in new stores and take a conservative view of growth prospects for the 2009 financial year.

Revenue increased by 16.6% to R221.3 million. All segments of the group produced better results aggregating in a profit after tax of R11 973 000 which is an improvement of 238% over the corresponding period of last year. The resultant headline earnings for the half-year amount to 54.0cps compared with 17.6cps last year, an increase of 207%. Earnings amount to 58.8cps compared to 17.6cps last year, an increase of 234%.



Preference dividend

A dividend on the 6% cumulative preference shares for the six months ended 31 December 2007 in the amount of R8 400 was declared on 23 November 2007 and paid on 24 December 2007.



Prospects

The second half of the financial year is expected to present a challenge as higher interest rates and inflationary pressures should result in a slowdown in consumer demand. Queenspark's seasonal ranges currently in stores have been well received by customers and sales performance to date represents a pleasing improvement on last year. Any decline in retail spending during the next few months should be offset by additional sales generated by new stores. The rate of increase in profit achieved during the first half of the financial year is not expected to continue during the second half. The profit for the full year ending June 2008 is expected to exceed that of the previous year.

Queenspark's turnover was 10% below target and 5.6% below that of the previous comparable period however, unit volumes in comparable stores increased during the period. The decrease in turnover to R151.6 million (R163.8 million) from continued operations was partly the result of a 26-week trading period compared with a 27-week period in the previous year. Operating profit of R4.7 million (R16.4 million) has been affected by an increase in occupancy and employee costs relative to the reduced turnover. Furthermore, increased overhead costs, largely related to the provision of an expanded infrastructure and in particular, information technology expenditure to accommodate a higher level of activity, adversely affected net operating income. Ongoing challenges in the manufacturing sector of the business had a severely detrimental effect on group profit. The group made a net loss of R1.1 million (R10.7 million profit in 2004).
