The board welcomes Messrs Mabuza and Khanyile as non-executive directors to Sun International and looks forward to their contributions to the group and thanks Mr Mokhobo for his valuable contributions made over the last two years.



Committees

Shareholders are referred to the Company's unaudited interim results announcement which was released on SENS on Monday, 3 September 2018, when it was announced that Mr Sam Sithole had been appointed as an additional member to both of Sun International's Investment, as well as remuneration committees, effective from 31 August 2018.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that an investor presentation pertaining to Sun International?s unaudited interim financial results for the six month period ended 30 June 2018 has been made available on the Company?s website at www.corporate.suninternational.com/investors/presentations
03-Sep-2018
(C)
Income from continuing operations for the interim period increased to R7.9 billion (2017: R7.6 billion). Operating profit increased to R1.1 billion (2017: R1 billion). Profit for the period attributable to ordinary shareholders improved to R137 million (2017: loss of R58 million). In addition, headline earnings per share rose to 128 cents per share (2017: headline loss of 79 cents per share).



Dividend

The board has decided not to declare an interim dividend for the six months ended 30 June 2018.



Company outlook

As a result of the subdued local economy and low economic growth experienced in Chile, we expect trading to remain under pressure. We are however encouraged by the trading at Time Square, Monticello, Sun Slots and our Peru operations. Forward bookings on the hospitality front have also improved which will assist both Sun City and Table Bay.



The continued focus on maximizing efficiencies and reducing costs will help us protect our margins in this difficult trading environment. We will, however, need to deal with the full impact of the increase in VAT in the second half as well as the requirement to permanently employ temporary contract labour workers at our properties in terms of the recent Constitutional Court ruling.



While we expect our new operations in Peru and Argentina to contribute positively in the second half, interest costs in Latam will increase following these acquisitions and the acquisition of the minority interest in Sun Dreams. Earnings attributable to Latam minorities will, as a consequence of the acquisition, reduce.



The proceeds from the rights offer will help reduce interest costs in South Africa although the number of shares in issue has increased.



We will continue focusing on reducing our debt levels and improving our debt covenants.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to Sun International?s 2017 year-end results announcement which was published on SENS on Monday, 19 March 2018 when, among others, the Company reported that the Superintendencia de Casinos de Juego (?SCJ?) in Chile had opened the bidding process for five Chilean municipal licences during September 2017. Sun Dreams submitted bids for the two municipal licences that it currently holds, namely Iquique and Puerto Varas and for an additional three licences.



On Friday, 8 June 2018, the SCJ adjudicated the bidding process in respect of the five Chilean municipal licences. The award of each of these licences was based on the successful applicant satisfying the minimum bid requirements and submitting the highest economic offer (additional fixed annual tax). The bid for the Iquique municipal licence was awarded to Sun Dreams for a further period of 15 years. Although Sun Dreams? bids met the minimum bid requirements, the remaining four licences were awarded to Enjoy in Chile. Enjoy submitted economic offers which would not have delivered acceptable rates of return as required by the boards of Sun Dreams and Sun International for similar projects of this nature.



Puerto Varas generated revenues of R405 million and EBITDA of R183 million for the year ended 31 December 2017. With regards to the Sun Dreams bid and taking into account the economic offer, the EBITDA would have reduced significantly. It is anticipated that the licence will transfer at the end of the current financial year. The Sun Dreams board will consider whether it will be viable to retain the current hotel operations in Puerto Varas or dispose of the property.



Shareholders are advised that Sun Dreams? bid for Iquique includes a casino of 676 slot machines and 24 tables, a hotel of 122 rooms and three food and beverage outlets, at a total cost of approximately USD 55 million. The economic offer bid by Sun Dreams was UF 234 777 (USD 10 million) which is payable annually and which increases with Chilean inflation. The construction of the new property is expected to be finalised in two years and for the time being Sun Dreams will operate under the existing licence.

Shareholders are referred to the announcements released by the company on the Stock Exchange News Service on 30 May 2017 and 1 June 2017 respectively, regarding the proposed acquisition by the Company, through its subsidiary Sun Latam SpA, of 50% of the equity interest held by Entretenimientos Del Sur Limitada in Sun Dreams Sociedad Anonima (the "proposed acquisition").



Shareholders are advised that the Superintendencia De Casinos De Juego, the Casino Regulator in Chile has approved the proposed acquisition and accordingly all the conditions precedent pertaining to the proposed acquisition have been fulfilled or waived, as the case may be and the transaction has become unconditional.
08-Nov-2017
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that in recent years, Sun International has undergone a significant growth phase which has included, among others, the expansion into Latin America, the merger of its Latin American operations with that of Dreams S.A. and the subsequent acquisition of a controlling interest in the merged entity, the construction of Time Square and the recapitalisation of a number of Sun International?s existing hotels and casinos, all of which have been funded through debt. At 30 June 2017, Sun International?s borrowings were R15.1 billion, of which R11.4 billion is attributable to the South African balance sheet.



While the group?s operations continue to generate strong cash flows and Sun International has renegotiated its debt covenant levels for June 2017 and December 2017, the Company?s board of directors ('Board') has nevertheless deemed it prudent to consider raising additional capital in the market in order to de-risk the balance sheet. It is envisaged that any proceeds from such a capital raise exercise would be used to repay debt, thereby creating head room in relation to the relevant debt covenants. A stronger balance sheet and capital structure will also afford management greater operational freedom and the ability to focus its time and efforts on the stated 'back to basics' strategy as well as reducing Sun International?s interest charge, as rates are based on the Company?s prevailing debt metrics.



Potential Capital Raise Exercise

Under the circumstances, Sun International has canvassed the feasibility and timing of a rights offer with several of its major shareholders. While these shareholders are unanimous in their support for Sun International conducting a rights offer, the Board has decided that, due to the practicality of running a rights offer process over a December / January period, any decision regarding a potential capital raise exercise will be re-assessed early next year.



Accordingly, a further announcement will be made to shareholders, providing them with information regarding the Board's intentions around any capital raise exercise for the Company in early 2018, and potentially only following the announcement of Sun International?s annual financial results for the year ending 31 December 2017, which are expected to be announced on or about 19 March 2018.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that Ms CM Henry and Messrs EAMMG Cibie and N Basthdaw were appointed as additional members of the SunInt Risk Committee with effect from 2 October 2017.



As per the SENS announcement released by the Company on 15 June 2017, Ms Henry will be succeeding Mr GR Rosenthal as the Audit Committee Chairman, following Mr Rosenthal?s retirement from the Board at the 2018 Annual General Meeting.

(C)
The following results are the maiden interim results of the company since the change in year-end from June to December. Revenue from continuing operations was R7.6 billion whilst operating profit came in at R1.0 billion. Loss attributable to ordinary shareholders was R58 million. In addition, headline loss per share from continuing operations were 79cps.



Interim dividend

Given the difficult trading conditions and the need to reduce the high debt levels, the board has decided not to declare an interim dividend for the six month period ended 30 June 2017.



Company outlook

The South African economy will remain challenging for the foreseeable future with continued downward pressure on personal disposable income and in particular discretionary spending on gaming. In response to disappointing revenue growth and the uncertain economic outlook, management has taken further steps to reduce the cost of doing business and is in the process of implementing a "back to basics" drive across the group with a specific focus on improving operating efficiencies.



Whilst gaming revenues at the group's casino operations are expected to remain under pressure, Sun City will continue to benefit from the recent significant refurbishment of the resort. The opening of the arena at Time Square in October and the hotel in March 2018 is expected to increase footfall to the property with a commensurate increase in revenue and EBITDA.



The Chilean economy is showing signs of improvement and the revenue trend is encouraging. As reported Monticello, the group's largest casino in Chile, was negatively impacted by a tragic shooting incident in July 2017, but revenues are steadily recovering and should result in a stronger second half performance.



Trading at the group's operations in Panama and Colombia remains disappointing and a number of options are under consideration to reduce and/or eliminate the losses currently being incurred.



The development of Time Square at an estimated final cost of R4.2 billion has been entirely funded with debt resulting in a significant increase in the overall level of gearing in South Africa. Whilst the group remains highly cash generative the uncertain economic outlook is a cause for concern. The board is of the view that it would be prudent to give consideration to the deleveraging of the group's balance sheet and is currently evaluating a number of options.
28-Sep-2017
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the trading statement released by the Company on SENS on 13 September 2017, wherein it was advised that SunInt?s headline earnings per share for the financial half-year ended 30 June 2017 is expected to be a loss of between 65 cents per share and 77 cents per share compared against the prior corresponding period?s headline earnings profit of 87 cents per share, while, basic earnings per share for the financial half year ended 30 June 2017 is expected to be a loss of between 90 cents per share and 96 cents per share compared against the prior corresponding period?s profit of 32 cents per share.



Shareholders are advised that the Board of SunInt has re-assessed and consequently adjusted the extent of an impairment taken in accordance with IFRS 2 (Share Based Payment). As a result, it is expected that the basic earnings per share loss will be lower than reported in the previous trading statement. The headline earnings per share loss is however expected to be higher as the impairment charge cannot be adjusted for headline earnings. There has been no change to the adjusted diluted headline earnings per share range previously reported to shareholders.



Accordingly, it is now advised that the Board of the Company is reasonably certain that SunInt?s headline earnings per share for the financial half-year ended 30 June 2017 is expected to be a loss of between 71 cents per share and 85 cents per share compared against the prior corresponding period?s headline earnings profit of 87 cents per share, while, basic earnings per share for the financial half year ended 30 June 2017 is expected to be a loss of between 56 cents per share and 62 cents per share compared against the prior corresponding period?s profit of 32 cents per share.



SunInt?s interim financial statements for the financial half year ended 30 June 2017 are expected to be announced on or about Monday, 2 October 2017.

Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders came in at R105 million. In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations were 291cps.



Dividend

Given the difficult trading conditions and the need to complete strategic group initiatives, particularly Time Square, and the need to reduce debt levels, the board has decided not to declare a dividend for the period under review.



Annual general meeting: Annual statutory report: Integrated annual report

Sun International's 33rd annual general meeting will be held at The Maslow Hotel, Corner of Grayston Drive and Rivonia Road, Sandton, Johannesburg on Wednesday, 14 June 2017 at 09h00. Further details regarding the company's annual general meeting will be contained in Sun International's 2016 annual statutory report to be posted to shareholders during or about the middle of April 2017. Given the short time period which has elapsed since posting the company's previous integrated annual report (21 October 2016), no further integrated annual report will be delivered to shareholders in respect of the period under review.



Company Outlook

Sun International expects gaming revenue in South Africa to remain under pressure as a result of ongoing subdued economic conditions, increased personal income taxes and reduced disposable income. Hotel occupancy is however anticipated to grow for the remainder of the year and will be boosted by the refurbished conference and entertainment centre at Sun City, where forward bookings for conferences are well up on last year. The opening of the casino at Time Square in April 2017 is expected to have a positive impact on the group's performance going forward.



In Latin America, the Chilean economy, although still experiencing low GDP growth, is showing positive signs of an improvement with an increase in the copper price and low inflation and interest rates. Although trading in the early part of 2017 has remained subdued it is expected to pick up towards the end of the year.



Taking into account current trading conditions and the group's levels of indebtedness, the primary focus for the foreseeable future will be to reduce debt and ensure the successful implementation and integration of recent acquisitions.

Regrettably and due to an unexpected health issue, Mr NB Morrison has determined that he is no longer available for election as a director at the AGM and accordingly this announcement serves to confirm that ordinary resolution number 1.2, forming part of Sun International?s notice of AGM, will no longer be proposed at the AGM and is hereby withdrawn.



All other details with regards to resolutions 1.1 and 1.3 and the notice of AGM remain unchanged.



Shareholders are further referred to the announcements released on SENS by Sun International on 22 August 2016 and 30 August 2016, regarding the appointment of an interim and permanent company secretary for the Company respectively.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that executive director and Chief Executive, Graeme Stephens, will be leaving the Sun International group at the end of April 2017 to take up another opportunity. Mr Stephens has been with Sun International for over 5 years and was mandated to achieve a strategic repositioning of the Group.



By the time of his departure next year the major objectives that were set for him by the board of directors (?Board?) will have been achieved. Operationally the business has been restructured. The Group has essentially exited its non-core African assets. The major focus and initiative currently underway is the construction of Time Square at Menlyn Maine and this is on track for the casino to open in early April 2017, prior to his departure. As regards the offshore expansion into Latin America, the merger with Dreams has been achieved, and Sun International now has a controlling interest in the largest gaming group in Latam.



Mr Stephens will be succeeded as Chief Executive by Anthony Leeming the current Chief Financial Officer, who will take over with effect from 1 May 2017. Mr Leeming has been with the Group for 17 years, joining as group financial manager in 1999 and has held various group finance roles prior to his appointment as Chief Financial Officer in March 2013. In this capacity he has worked closely with the Chief Executive in helping to develop and implement the Group strategy. The Board believes that the current strategy remains relevant and the short to medium term focus is on bedding down some of the large initiatives that have been undertaken. In line with Sun International?s succession plans, Anthony has been groomed to succeed Graeme and has been integrally involved in all aspects of the strategy, and is ideally suited to step into the Chief Executive role. The appointment of a new Chief Financial Officer will be announced in due course.

Each of the transactions in the various jurisdictions are conditional on applicable regulatory approvals and

will be implemented as these approvals are obtained. SIL is pleased to inform shareholders that all approvals required for the disposal of the Zambia property (?Zambia Disposal?) have now been received resulting in this component of the Proposed Transaction becoming unconditional.

Shareholders are referred to the various Stock Exchange News Service announcements regarding notification that SIL had entered into binding transaction agreements with the shareholders of Dreams to merge its casino and hotel portfolio of assets with SIL?s Latin American portfolio, which consists of Monticello Grand Casino in Chile, the Ocean Club Casino in Panama and the Sun Nao Casino in Colombia (the ?Merger?).



The Merger was conditional upon the fulfilment or waiver of conditions precedent normal for a transaction of this nature which included, inter alia, the approval of the relevant gambling regulators in Latin America. SIL is pleased to inform shareholders that all approvals for the Merger have now been received resulting in the Merger becoming unconditional. Accordingly, the parties have now implemented the Merger.



The Merger results in the creation of Latin America?s largest gambling group (?Sun Dreams?) which will have the profile, critical mass and balance sheet to expand to the rest of the continent, make meaningful acquisitions and take on larger projects. The Merger should also unlock synergies between the combined Chilean properties as a result of its scale. Sun Dreams is structured with a relatively low level of gearing (below 2x EBITDA) which will ensure that it is self-sustaining in the near term and will operate without having to leverage off SIL?s South African balance sheet.

(collectively the ?Western Cape Assets?) to Tsogo (?Proposed Transaction?).



The disposal by SIL of its 10% economic interest in SunWest and Worcester ( (?Sun Disposal?) was conditional upon confirmation from the Sun International Employee Share Trust, by not later than 30 April 2016, that it had waived its pre-emptive rights in terms of the current shareholders agreement.

The Proposed Transaction also entails GPI disposing of a 10% economic interest in the Western Cape Assets on the same terms as the Sun Disposal (?GPI Disposal?). The GPI Disposal is conditional on GPI obtaining the approval of its shareholders by 30 June 2016, which date may be extended by 30 days at the instance of GPI. In the event that GPI shareholder approval is not obtained by this date then SIL will increase the shares disposed of under the Sun Disposal such that Tsogo acquires a further 10% stake in the Western Cape Assets from SIL, bringing Tsogo?s aggregate interest in the Western Cape Assets to 20%.

(Official Notice)
The company is currently finalising its results for the six months ended 31 December 2015, which are expected to be released on SENS before the end of February 2016. In this regard, shareholders are advised that in comparison to the results of the corresponding reporting period of the previous half year ("last year"), provided to the market in a SENS announcement dated 23 February 2015:

* EBITDA is expected to be between 2% below and 1% above the R1 611 million reported last year;

* Diluted adjusted headline earnings per share ("AHEPS"), which the company considers the most meaningful measure of its performance, are likely to be between 309 and 351 cents per share (15% to 25%) lower than the 410 cents reported last year.

* Loss per share ("LPS") is likely to be between 430 to 470 cents per share (- 151% to -155%), compared to the 849 cents earnings of last year; and

* Headline loss per share ("HLPS") is likely to be between 450 to 490 cents per share (-221% to -232%), compared to the 372 cents earnings of last year.



The LPS and HLPS are attributed to the following:

* Raising of an accrual of R747 million for settlement of the Menlyn Maine note as a result of the Peermont group acquisition being unlikely to proceed and the settlement of the GoldRush legal challenge to Menlyn Maine.

* An earn out payment of R195 million relating to the minority interest in Monticello that was acquired by the company last year as a result of Monticello achieving the earnings targets set out in the transactional agreements.

* Subdued casino trading in the group?s core South African market, and interest and capital charges from the Ocean Sun Casino in Panama for the full period (opened September 2014) and the Sun Nao Casino in Colombia (opened May 2015). Monticello continues to trade well with casino revenue up 14% (6% in local currency).



Partly offsetting the impact of the above charges is a foreign exchange gain on intercompany accounts. The difference between earnings per share and headline earnings per share for last year was largely attributable to the R462 million profit realised from the sale of a significant portion of the group?s shareholdings in the group?s operations located in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Zambia. In deriving AHEPS, the foreign exchange profits on intercompany accounts, the Menlyn Maine settlement accruals and the Monticello earn out payment have been adjusted for.

Sun International is pleased to advise shareholders that the last remaining objection relating to the proposed relocation of its Morula casino licence has been withdrawn. The Goldrush Group ("Goldrush"), which has bingo operations in the Tshwane area, brought proceedings in the High Court of South Africa (Gauteng Division, Pretoria) ("High Court") effectively raising objections to Sun International?s proposed relocation of its Morula casino licence from its current site in Mabopane to Menlyn, Tshwane.



Sun International and Goldrush have entered into a settlement agreement whereby Goldrush has now withdrawn its High Court application. As part of the settlement, Goldrush will make application to relocate one of its bingo licences to the Morula site and commence operations thereon once the existing casino licence has been relocated.



The detailed plans and costing for Sun International's proposed new development at Menlyn Maine are close to being finalized and Sun International is confident that without any further impediments to the development and construction, the target opening date of September 2017 will be achieved.

(C)
Revenue from continuing operations grew 6% to R10.6 billion (R10.0 billion). Operating profit rose 31% to R2.1 billion (R1.6 billion). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders jumped to R890 million (R518 million). In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations were higher at 586 cents per share (505 cents per share).



Dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross final cash dividend of 175 cents per share (148.75 cents net of dividend withholding tax) for the year ended 30 June 2015 has been declared.



Outlook

The South African economy is showing no signs of any meaningful improvement in the short-term. In Chile, the short-term outlook is for lower growth than in recent years ? and this is reflected in the recent currency depreciation. Against this background the group expects the subdued casino trading experienced in the second half of the 2015 year to continue for the year ahead. The acquisition of the second tranche of 25% in GPI Slots will result in GPI Slots being consolidated and consequently revenue and EBITDA will increase. Monticello is expected to continue to perform well, despite the weak economic conditions and we anticipate that the Ocean Sun Casino and Sun Nao Casino will contribute positively to EBITDA in the year ahead as they continue to establish themselves.



Through the new properties, new lines of business, insourcing of food and beverage and a continued focus on cost savings and efficiencies Sun International anticipates growth in both revenue and EBITDA. Although the group expects a difficult operating environment, the group is confident that it can achieve growth in adjusted headline earnings in the 2016 financial year.



As outlined in this announcement the group has recently concluded a number of significant strategic transactions and has a number of others that are still to be concluded which will have an impact on the group?s 2016 results and financial position. Sun International anticipates that these transactions position the group for growth in the medium- to long-term.

The Company is currently finalising its results for the year ended 30 June 2015, which are expected to be released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE Ltd. ("SENS") on 24 August 2015.



In this regard, shareholders are advised that in comparison to the results of the year ended 30 June 2014 ("last year"), provided to the market in a SENS announcement dated 25 August 2014:

*Earnings per share are likely to be between 915 to 971 cents per share, which is 65% to 75% higher than the 555 cents of last year; and

*Headline earnings per share are likely to be 596 to 653 cents per share, which is 5% to 15% higher than the 568 cents of last year.



The difference between earnings per share and headline earnings per share is largely attributable to the profit realised from the sale of a significant portion of the group?s shareholdings in its operations located in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Zambia.



Diluted adjusted headline earnings per share, which the Company considers the most meaningful measure of performance, are likely to be between 688 and 753 cents per share, which is 5% to 15% higher than the 655 cents reported last year.



The improved performance is predominantly due to restructuring initiatives across the group, in particular South Africa, and an improvement in Monticello casino revenue which was up 10% (14% in local currency) as the property recovers to the levels of revenue achieved pre the smoking ban implemented in March 2013. Profitability was negatively impacted by the results of Ocean Sun Casino in Panama which is in its start-up phase and an unrealised forex loss of R89 million (R44 million attributable to the Company) on US dollar denominated minority shareholder loans owed by the Federal Palace property in Nigeria.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the Company?s external auditors.

In terms of the Acquisition, GPI granted SISA options, exercisable within 30 days of the financial results of GPI Slots for the year ending 30 June 2015 and 30 June 2016, being finalised, which is anticipated to be in September 2015 and 2016 respectively, to acquire additional GPI Slots shares and shareholder loans for cash such that SISA?s total shareholding and shareholder loans in GPI Slots post exercise of Option Two will be 50.1% and post exercise of Option Three will be 70%.



In order to allow for the applications to be made to the various regulators to approve Sun International acquiring the further shareholding in respect of the Option Two and Option Three, the parties have agreed to amend the terms of the sale of shares and claims agreement (?Amendments?) to allow for the applications to the regulators to be made upfront whilst maintaining all commercial aspects of the Acquisition as initially envisaged. Should SISA elect not to proceed with the acquisition of the shareholdings under Option Two and Option Three, SISA will be liable to pay all the costs associated with the regulatory submission fees and approvals.



The Amendments have been considered by the parties? directors, their respective legal advisors and reporting accountants and have confirmed that the Amendments do not have a material effect on the previously calculated pro forma financial effects and that the commercial terms of the Acquisition remain unchanged. Consequently, no further Sun International or GPI shareholder approval will be sought in respect of the Amendments.

(Official Notice)
With regards to the various announcements relating to the Proposed Transaction and released since May 2014 on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE Ltd. by Sun International, Tsogo Sun Holdings Ltd. and Grand Parade Investments Ltd. ("the Parties"), a key condition was that the Proposed Transaction be implemented by 31 May 2015. This initially agreed implementation date was subsequently extended by the Parties to 31 August 2015. It has now become apparent that the revised implementation date of 31 August 2015 will not be achieved and based upon recent discussions, the Parties have concluded that it is not possible to simply extend the date again as the commercial metrics agreed to under the current Proposed Transaction have changed due to the effluxion of time. The Parties, by mutual agreement, have therefore decided to terminate the Proposed Transaction. Based on the above, the Parties have commenced taking steps to withdraw the applications made to the relevant regulatory authorities that would have been required in order to give effect to the Proposed Transaction.

24-Feb-2015
(Media Comment)
Business Day reported that gaming and leisure group Sun International could turn its attention to Asia after proposals to consolidate its Latin American units into a bigger entity. In its half year to end December results the group said all key properties(barring Sun City) showed increased profits after cost cuts in the previous year. Sun CEO Graeme Stephens said the merged entity would only offer more scope for new opportunities in South America, but could also provide a platform for venturing into Asia's gaming market once the transaction was bedded down.

Revenue from continuing operations grew 7% to R5.3 billion (R5.0 billion). Operating profit shot up 68% to R1.4 billion (R825 million). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders more than doubled to R790 million (R302 million). In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations rose by 12% to 328 cents per share (293 cents per share).



Interim cash dividend

Notice is hereby given that a gross interim cash dividend of 110 cents per share (93.5 cents net of dividend withholding tax) for the six months ended 31 December 2014 has been declared.



Outlook

The group continues to operate in a subdued and challenging economic environment, in particular in its core South African business. As indicated in the June 2014 profit and dividend announcement little improvement is expected in the medium term. Despite the poor economic conditions, the group has continued to benefit from the revenue enhancing and cost cutting initiatives implemented over the past 18 months, including those implemented at Monticello, which has delivered significantly improved trading. The benefits of the various initiatives should continue to be felt in the second half of the year, albeit the same relative revenue growth from Monticello is not expected given that restructuring initiatives at that property were undertaken at the end of 2013 and are already in the base comparative for the second half. The Ocean Sun Casino trading is expected to improve as it establishes itself in the market and grows its VIP gaming business.



On balance, the group is confident that it will achieve growth in both EBITDA and adjusted headline earnings in the second half of the 2015 financial year.



The group has recently concluded a number of significant strategic transactions which will have an impact on the group's results and financial position in the future. SunInt anticipates that these transactions position the group for growth in the medium to long term.

SunInt is currently finalising its results for the six months ended 31 December 2014, which are expected to be released on SENS before the end of February 2015.



In this regard, shareholders are advised that in comparison to the results of the corresponding reporting period of the previous half year (?last year?), provided to the market in a SENS announcement dated 24 February 2014:

* Earnings are likely to be between 826 to 859 cents per share, which is 155% to 165% higher than the 324 cents of last year; and

* Headline earnings are likely to be 359 to 375 cents per share, which is 10% to 15% higher than the 326 cents of last year.



The difference between earnings per share and headlines earnings per share is largely attributable to the profit realised from the sale of a significant portion of the group?s shareholdings in the group?s operations located in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Zambia. Diluted adjusted headline earnings, which the board considers the most meaningful measure of the performance of the Company, are likely to be between 401 and 417 cents per share, which is 20% to 25% higher than the 334 cents reported last year.



The improved performance is predominantly due to restructuring initiatives across the group, in particular South Africa, and an improvement in Monticello casino revenue which was up 18.2% as the property continues to recover from the smoking ban implemented in Chile in March 2013. Profitability was negatively impacted by the results of the Ocean Sun Casino in Panama which is in its startup phase.



Casino revenue in the group?s South African operations is up 5.4% in comparison to last year. The Group?s EBITDA increased by 14.5% in comparison to last year.

SunInt and Grand Parade Investments Ltd. ("GPI") shareholders are referred to the circular as issued by SunInt and GPI respectively to its shareholders on 21 July 2014 ("Circular") in respect of the proposed material acquisition in GPI Slots by SunInt through its wholly owned subsidiary Sun International (South Africa) Ltd., from GPI (?Proposed Acquisition?) and the announcement detailing the results of the general meeting dated 22 August 2014 wherein SunInt and GPI shareholders were respectively informed that all resolutions required for the approval of the Proposed Acquisition were passed by the requisite majority by both SunInt and GPI shareholders at their respective general meetings.



Fulfilment of Conditions Precedent

SunInt and GPI shareholders were originally advised that the agreements to give effect to the Proposed Acquisition included a condition precedent (which, in terms of the agreements was not capable of waiver) which required the Mpumalanga Gambling Board approval in terms of section 36 of the Mpumalanga Gambling Act, Act No. 5 of 1995 (?Act?). Subsequently, the agreements have been amended such that the parties are able to waive and have agreed to waive, the Mpumalanga Gambling Board approval (?Waived Condition?), given that the Act allows for the approval of the Mpumalanga Gambling Board to be obtained subsequent to implementation. The intention is that the Waived Condition will then be obtained post implementation of the Proposed Acquisition.



The Waived Condition is considered immaterial to the Proposed Acquisition and no further SunInt or GPI shareholder approval will be sought in this respect.



As a result of the Waived Condition, the Proposed Acquisition is now unconditional (all other conditions precedent having been fulfilled) and will be implemented by SunInt and GPI in terms of the agreements governing the Proposed Acquisition.

(Official Notice)
SunInt shareholders ("Shareholders") are referred to the announcement dated 18 August 2014 (the "Announcement") regarding SunInt disposing of a significant portion of its interests in the African Assets to Minor International Public Company Ltd. ("MINT") ("Transaction"), the detail of which is set out in the Announcement.



Fulfilment of certain conditions precedent

Shareholders were originally advised that the agreements to give effect to the Transaction were inter- conditional as the African Assets were being sold as a "portfolio" ("Original Terms"). All conditions precedent to the Transaction have now been fulfilled, save for certain of the regulatory conditions to the Namibia component of the Transaction, which is taking longer than expected. The parties have also decided to delay implementation of the Swaziland component of the Transaction. The Original Terms have now been amended to allow the Transaction to be implemented without the Swaziland component of the Transaction and without that portion of the Namibia-component of the Transaction which remains subject to regulatory approval ("Revised Terms").



The Revised Terms ensure that SunInt and MINT are able to execute earlier on their strategic rationale for the Transaction as detailed per the Announcement, whilst the parties continue to work towards completing the Namibia-and Swaziland components of the Transaction within a reasonable time period. As a result of the Revised Terms, the Transaction has become unconditional and will now be implemented in so far as it does not relate to Swaziland and the excluded portion of the Namibia- component of the Transaction. A further announcement will be released by SunInt to inform Shareholders once the balance of the Transaction is to be implemented.

Revenue for the year increased by 5% to R10.8 billion (2013: R10.3 billion). Operating profit dropped by 11% to R1.7 billion (2013: R1.9 billion), while profit for the year attributable to ordinary shareholders decreased to R518 million (2013: R697 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share decreased to 568 cents per share (2013: 753 cents per share).



Dividend

A gross final cash dividend of 155 cents per share for the year ended 30 June 2014 has been declared



Outlook

Over the past year there has been little change in the trading environment which remains subdued and minimal improvement is expected in the medium term. Despite the poor economic conditions, the second half of the financial year has reflected an encouraging improvement in both revenue and EBITDA as a result of the revenue enhancing and cost cutting initiatives implemented during the year and the significantly improved trading of Monticello. The benefit of these initiatives should continue to have a positive effect in the new financial year, in particular the imminent conclusion of the restructure in South Africa. As can be expected these initiatives have brought about significant change in the group and a key focus of management in the year ahead will be ensuring that the benefits achieved are sustainable. The group will also benefit from the opening of the Ocean Club Casino in September 2014. On balance, the group is confident that it will achieve growth in both EBITDA and adjusted headline earnings in the 2015 financial year. The forward looking information above has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's auditors.

(Official Notice)
SunInt is in the process of finalising its results for the year ended 30 June 2014, which are expected to be released on SENS on or about 25 August 2014. Over the past six months of the financial year the group has experienced an improvement in casino trading at its South African operations with gaming revenue up 6% following the subdued growth of 3% in the first half. In addition Monticello has recovered strongly from the smoking ban implemented in March 2013 with casino revenues up 10% for the six months to 30 June 2014 and 23% for the comparable March to June period. The improved trading, together with cost cutting initiatives, has resulted in EBITDA increasing by 16% in the second half and 5% for the year.



Shareholders are however advised that basic and headline earnings per share for the year ended 30 June 2014 are expected to be between 23% and 28% lower than the 764 cents per share (as restated in the 31 December 2013 unaudited profit and dividend announcement) than the prior year. Headline earnings and basic earnings were impacted by certain one off charges relating to the section 189A staff restructure, pre-opening costs and an impairment charge relating to the Maslow hotel.



Diluted adjusted headline earnings per share, which the board considers the most meaningful measure of performance for the company, is expected to be between 5% and 10% lower than the 715 cents per share of the prior year. This is a significant improvement on the 18% decline experienced in the first half.

SunInt is delighted to advise shareholders that the Gauteng Gambling Board has approved its application to amend Morula?s casino licence thereby permitting the relocation of the casino (currently situated in Mabopane) to the Menlyn Maine precinct in Tshwane. The approval, which is subject to certain conditions that largely reflect the commitments made in the application, opens the way for Sun International to commence planning and construction of the R3 billion Time Square development. SunInt, through group companies, will have a management contract and hold an effective 74.9% of the development.



The company expects that in addition to significant job creation, the development will also generate considerably more revenue for both provincial and national government by way of taxes and gaming levies and will generate far greater returns for shareholders and all stakeholders compared to the on- going operation of Morula in its current location.

Outlook

Over the past six months the group has made significant progress with its strategic objectives as set out in the 2013 integrated annual report. These objectives include a number of key deliverables and revenue growth and cost cutting initiatives, the benefit of which are starting to show in the group's results. As stated previously, the full benefit of these initiatives and the wider group restructure will only fully reflect in the 2015 financial year. The trading environment is expected to remain subdued but given the initiatives already implemented and the recent improvement in the performance of Monticello the group is optimistic that it will achieve growth in both EBITDA and adjusted headline earnings in comparison to the second half of the 2013 financial year. The forward looking information above has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's auditors.

(Official Notice)
Sun International is in the process of finalising its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2013, which are expected to be released on SENS on or about 24 February 2014.



In the second quarter, the Group achieved revenue growth of 3.9%, up from 3.1% in the 1st Quarter. Excluding Monticello, which is still being impacted by the smoking ban in Chile, revenue for the half year was up 6.6%. Encouragingly recent trading at Monticello has improved since the opening of the smoking terraces. The 9% decline in EBITDA for the 1st Quarter has been contained to 5% for the 6 months, through certain revenue enhancing and cost cutting initiatives. Further restructuring is currently the focus of a recently announced consultation process in terms of section 189 and section 189A of the Labour Relations Act, 66 of 1995.



The comparison of attributable earnings with the prior year is further impacted by the additional depreciation charges from the new property openings (Boardwalk and Maslow hotels), the Maslow lease expense and restructuring costs incurred to date. Shareholders are accordingly advised that as a consequence of these factors, basic and headline earnings per share for the six months ended 31 December 2013 are expected to be between 18% and 22% lower than the 396 cents per share of the previous corresponding period.



Diluted adjusted headline earnings per share is expected to be between 16% and 20% lower than the 408 cents per share of the previous corresponding period. The financial information on which the above trading statement has been provided has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's external auditors.

The initial assessment has identified approximately 1 700 positions that could potentially be affected if a restructure were to be implemented.

Revenue for the year increased by 8% to R10.3 billion (2012: R9.5 billion). Operating profit shot up by 11% to R1.9 billion (2012: R1.7 billion), while profit for the year attributable to ordinary shareholders rose to R707 million (2012: R632 million).

Dividend

A gross final cash dividend of 155 cents per share (131.75 cents net of dividend withholding tax) for the year ended 30 June 2013 has been declared



Outlook

In the absence of a significant improvement in the current South African economic environment the group anticipates trading to remain subdued in the forthcoming year. Gaming revenue will be impacted by a full year's trading under the smoking ban in Chile whilst rooms revenues are expected to reflect continued good growth off fairly low levels. Given the outlook for low revenue growth there will be an increased focus on efficiencies and costs with the intent to improve margins and EBITDA.



SunInt has recently completed three large projects in the form of Wild Coast, Boardwalk expansion and the Maslow hotel, all delivered on time, on budget and successfully opened. Looking forward SunInt has an exciting pipeline of new opportunities as outlined above and whilst these will not make a significant impact on the 2014 financial year they position the group for good growth thereafter.

Outlook

The trading environment is expected to improve marginally in the forthcoming year, resulting in improved revenues for both the Gaming division, and for Hotels and Resorts.

Trading in hotels and resorts remains challenging, and overall group occupancy for the quarter at 61% was four percentage points below last year. Sun City's revenue increased 1% with an average room rate of R1 542, 13% above last year as a result of better yielding by the various rate segments. Occupancy of 58% was achieved, 6 percentage points lower than last year. April occupancy however was 74%, 4 percentage points ahead of last year. EBITDA was 59% behind last year with a margin of 7.4%, resulting from the high fixed cost element of the resort.

The editor of Finweek, Marc Hasenfuss, wrote that SunInt should maybe consider selling Sun City as it has an EBITDA margin of under 12% versus an average for most casinos of between 30-40%, and produces much less in operating profit than SunInt's two flagship casinos, GrandWest and Carnival City, do. In addition, SunInt's Windmill casino in Bloemfontein generated twice as much in interim operating profit as Sun City managed to yield. Hasenfuss ultimately thinks that Sun City looks out of place within the group, especially as casino operations outside South Africa are picking up speed, and that there may be willing buyers provided that SunInt was selling to sell at an attractive price.

Revenue dropped to R7 797 million (2009: R7 915 million), EBITDA declined to R2 545 million (2009: R2 746 million), while operating profit fell to R1 641 million (2009: R1 895 million). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders improved to R513 million (2009: R501 million) and headline earnings per share decreased to 568cps (2009: 645cps)



Dividend

A dividend of 100 cents per ordinary share for the year ended 30 June 2010 was declared



Prospects

Although trading conditions are stabilising, it is anticipated that demand within the gaming and hospitality industries will remain weak in the year ahead. Notwithstanding this, some growth in revenue is expected from existing operations in addition to greater contributions from Monticello and the Federal Palace. Accordingly, the group expects growth in adjusted headline earnings per share. The outlook has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's auditors.

Shareholders are advised that the provincial government of the Western Cape (PGWC) has informed us that it intends announcing a change of policy which will permit an existing Western Cape casino licence to relocate to an area in the Cape Metropole which the PGWC believes is untapped by GrandWest and further believes would not significantly impact on GrandWest's revenues. This change in policy will require legislative enactment and a public process. We believe that there are grounds to have this decision reconsidered and will be making representations through the public process. In the event that a licence is relocated to the Metro this is unlikely to be before 2012. Insufficient detail is available at this stage to quantify the impact that this will have on GrandWest`s revenues and profitability although this is likely to be material.

Revenue for the quarter at R2 billion was 1% below last year. Gaming revenue and food, beverage and other revenue was in line with last year, while rooms revenue was 8% down on last year due to lower occupancies. Excluding Monticello, comparable revenue was 2% down on last year. Due to the Chile earthquake in the early hours of Saturday 27 February 2010, the group results only include trading for Monticello up to that date which was revenue of R139 million and EBITDA of R8 million. The impact on February was further affected by missing the closing day of the quarterly promotion. Comparable gaming revenue was in line with last year. Boardwalk and Sibaya achieved revenue growth of 7% and 4% respectively, while GrandWest and Carnival City achieved revenue growth of 1%. The group's share of the Gauteng market increased by 0.9 percentage points to 21.4% over the same quarter last year. Sibaya's share of the gaming market in Kwazulu-Natal for the quarter was marginally down on last year at 35.8% (35.9%).



Sun City's revenue declined by 4%, while achieving room occupancy of 68%, 6 percentage points lower than last year. The Table Bay achieved occupancy of 62% (76%) resulting in a decline in revenue of 14%. The Zambian properties achieved an aggregate occupancy of 45% (49%) at an average room rate of USD204. The overall occupancy for the quarter at 65% was 6 percentage points below last year. The group achieved an EBITDA margin of 30.2% which was 2.3 percentage points lower than the comparative quarter last year. The lower margin is due to the decline in comparable revenue and inflationary increases in operating costs. Excluding Monticello, the EBITDA margin was 32.1% for the quarter, 3.1 percentage points lower than last year.



Outlook

Trading conditions have stabilised and together with the anticipated benefits of the 2010 World Cup, growth in comparable revenue is expected for the remainder of the year. Comparable revenues for April 2010 were 2% above April 2009, a slight improvement on the decline experienced for the quarter to March.

Sun International confirmed today that Monticello, located approximately 60 km south of Santiago in Chile, had been damaged in the massive earthquake on Saturday morning. The company has earthquake insurance in place for both the damage to property and the costs of business interruption. There will however be a deductible in terms of the policy amounting to some USD8 million. Sun International expresses its solidarity with the people of Chile in the wake of this catastrophic event.

Revenue remained around R4 billion. Operating profit decreased by 19% to R781 million (R965 million). Net attributable profit declined by 21% to R243 million (R308 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis fell to 263cps (351cps).



Outlook

Trading conditions are stabilising and some growth in revenue is forecast for the remainder of the year in part due to the anticipated benefits of the 2010 World Cup. The expected improved revenue performance, lower interest costs and non- recurrence of the significant foreign exchange movements that occurred in the first half are anticipated to result in an improved earnings performance in the second half. Headline earnings per share for the full year however will be below 2009.

Revenue for the quarter at R1.9 billion was 4% ahead of last year. Gaming revenue and food, beverage and other revenue were 6% and 7% ahead of last year respectively, while rooms revenue was 12% down. Excluding Monticello, comparable revenue was 6% down on last year. Comparable gaming revenue was 5% below last year. Sibaya achieved revenue growth of 2%, however, revenue at GrandWest, Carnival City and Boardwalk declined by 7%, 15% and 6%, respectively. Despite growth in Carnival City's slots handle and tables drop, a reduced win percentage resulted in a 2.3 percentage points decline in the group's share of the Gauteng market to 19.7% versus the prior year. Trading results at Monticello continue to strengthen encouragingly although results stated in rands have been impacted by the rand's recent strength. EBITDA for the quarter was R16 million compared to the previous quarter of R8 million.



Amongst the hotels and resorts, Sun City achieved revenue growth of 4% while the Table Bay and Zambian properties experienced 34% declines in revenue compared to last year due to declines in occupancies of 21and 23 percentage points respectively. The average hotels and resorts room occupancy for the quarter at 69% was 8 percentage points below the previous year. The overall EBITDA margin of 27.3% was 6.2 percentage points lower than the comparative quarter last year, mainly due to the contraction in revenue coupled with increased costs particularly energy and property costs and the higher gaming taxes in Chile. Excluding Monticello, the EBITDA margin was 29.3% for the quarter, 4.2 percentage points lower than last year.



Revenue for the month of October has shown some marginal improvement on the first quarter, comparable revenue was just 3% down on last year, casino revenue in line with last year and hospitality and other revenue down 14%. Monticello casino revenue in Rands was 168% above last year when the casino traded for 24 days.



Trading is expected to remain subdued as there is little evidence to suggest an improvement in overall economic conditions in the foreseeable future. However, contributions from Monticello and Nigeria should assist in achieving growth in revenue. The above has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's auditors

Prospects

Subdued trading is expected to persist through the 2010 financial year as little improvement in the current economic conditions is anticipated. Contributions are however expected from the operations in Chile and Nigeria which should result in growth in revenue and EBITDA in the year ahead. The increased capital charges relating to these investments will however offset any contribution to adjusted headline earnings per share.

Trading conditions for the quarter continued to deteriorate with overall revenue growth of 6% over last year, and a decline of 1% if revenue from the new Monticello casino is excluded.



With regard to the major casino operations, Carnival City and Sibaya performed satisfactorily in the current economic conditions, with revenue growth of 8% and 1% respectively. GrandWest and Boardwalk continue to be impacted by declining local economic conditions with revenues 12% and 11% below last year, respectively.



In the hotel and resorts operations, revenues at Sun City were in line with the previous year, while revenues at Table Bay and Zambia declined 3% on last year. The average room occupancy for the quarter at 71% was 7 percentage points down on the previous year.



Outlook

Trading at the group's gaming operations for the remainder of the year is expected to remain subdued, whilst the local and global economic conditions will continue to negatively impact the hotels and resorts.

Sun Int's CE, David Coutts-Trotter, was quoted in Business Report as saying that trading in February and March 2009 was "very bad". However, improved conditions were expected for the next two months, as a result of the Indian Premier League cricket tournament, the British Lions tour and the Fifa Confederations Cup. These events will hopefully lead to more overseas visitors.

Turnover increased by 6% from R3.7 billion to R4.0 billion in 2008. Operating profit increased 14% to R965 million (2007:R844 million). Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders increased to R382.0 million (2007:R225.0 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew to 351cps (2007:120cps).



Dividends per share

No interim dividend was declared for the period under reviewed.



Prospects

Trading at the group's gaming operations is expected to remain subdued, whilst global economic conditions will negatively impact the hotels and resorts in the second half of the financial year. The group will benefit from declining interest rates. However this will not offset the higher interest charges arising from Monticello. In addition, the extent of foreign exchange gains generated in the second half of the prior year is unlikely to recur. Adjusted headline earnings per share for the full year is therefore expected to be below that achieved for 2008. The board is committed to ensuring that the group has the appropriate capacity to fund future opportunities and will consequently review the final dividend in light of conditions prevailing at the time.

The group has, in the first quarter, achieved overall revenue growth of 3% over last year which is reflective of the current economic environment. Casino and rooms revenues were 1% and 13% ahead of last year respectively, while food, beverage and other was up 8%. At the casino operations, Carnival City, Meropa and Morula performed well, achieving revenue growth of 7%, 10% and 11% respectively. Following the opening of the lodge at Golden Valley, the unit had an excellent quarter with revenue up 42% on last year. GrandWest and Boardwalk experienced negative growth of 6% and 4% respectively, while Sibaya's revenue was in line with the prior period. Amongst the hotels and resorts, the Table Bay and Zambian properties achieved excellent results, with revenue growth of 25% and 23% respectively. Sun City achieved a modest revenue growth of 2% due to the high base in the prior year resulting from higher group convention bookings. The average room occupancy for the quarter at 76% was 2 percentage points down on the previous year. The overall EBITDA margin of 33,5% is 1.5% lower than the comparative quarter last year, mainly due to the lower revenue performances from the major casino properties. However, given the pressures on costs due to the current inflationary environment, this is a satisfactory achievement.



Outlook

Trading in the group's casinos in South Africa for the remainder of the first half is expected to remain challenging as a result of the difficult economic climate. However this will be offset to some extent by the stronger growth in hospitality revenues.

The group achieved satisfactory growth in revenue, which at R7.6 billion was 10% ahead of last year. Gaming revenue grew 9% and hospitality and other revenue 12%. EBITDA of R2.8 billion was 11% up on last year and the EBITDA margin improved to 37.2% (36.9%).



Dividends

The board has declared a final dividend of 258cps bringing the total dividends for the year to 480cps.



Outlook

Trading conditions in the group's South African casino operations are anticipated to remain challenging in the year ahead. With the international tourism market remaining relatively buoyant, the group should however benefit from an expected improved contribution from hotels and resorts. The Chilean and Nigerian operations are expected to contribute in the year ahead to significant growth in revenue and EBITDA. The increased capital charges relating to these investments will however temper growth in adjusted headline earnings per share for the year ahead. It remains the intention of the group to continue increasing the dividends payable to shareholders at a rate ahead of earnings per share growth.

The performance of the group?s casinos reflected the difficult conditions that are affecting consumer spending in South Africa. Overall revenue growth for the quarter was 7% over last year despite Easter falling in this quarter as against the final quarter last year. Casino revenues were 6% ahead of last year with the better performances coming from GrandWest and Sibaya which achieved growths of 9% and 12% respectively whilst Carnival City and Boardwalk reflected declines in revenue compared to last year of 3% and 4% respectively. Encouraging rooms revenue growth of 15% was achieved for the quarter and the average room occupancy of the group?s hotels and resorts for the quarter at 78% was 3 percentage points up on last year.



Prospects

Trading conditions at the group?s casinos in South Africa for the remainder of the year are expected to remain difficult as a result of the pressures on disposable income, however this will be offset to some extent by stronger rooms revenue growth.

Revenue increased by 12% to R3.8 billion (R3.4 billion) for the six months to 31 December 2007. EBITDA of R1.4 billion for the six months was 14% up on last year and the EBITDA margin improved 0.6 percentage points to 36.6%. However, profit for the period attributable to ordinary shareholders declined to R103 million (R369 million). In addition, headline earnings per share fell to 120cps (414cps).



Dividend

An ordinary interim dividend of 222cps (185cps) has been declared.



Outlook

Current trading, particularly in the group's casinos in South Africa, reflects a significant slowdown in the rate of revenue growth. The group is projecting a lower rate of revenue and EBITDA growth in the second half that will impact adjusted headline earnings per share for the full year. The intention is to increase the final dividend by a similar percentage to the increase in the declared interim dividend.

(Official Notice)
Sun International shareholders were advised in the business updates released on SENS on 25 October 2005 and 3 May 2006 and the interim profit announcement dated 2 March 2006 that Afrisun Leisure Investments (Pty) Ltd ("Afrisun Leisure"), a subsidiary of Real Africa Holdings Ltd ("RAH"), claims it has a pre-emptive right over a proportion of the shares sold to Grand Parade Investments Ltd ("GPI"), a shareholder in SunWest, in terms of an agreement concluded between GPI and Sun International (South Africa) Ltd ("SISA") in 2003. The sale of shares in 2003 increased GPI's shareholding in SunWest on a facilitated basis to 20% and significantly improved SunWest's empowerment profile. Afrisun Leisure has instituted legal proceedings against SISA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sun International, to void the 2003 sale of shares agreement or in the alternative to seek damages in respect of a 5.5% shareholding in SunWest in the amount of a maximum of R326.7 million based on RAH's estimated market value of the SunWest shares in dispute at June 2003. Shareholders were advised in an announcement released on SENS on 5 May 2006 that Sun International intends to proceed with a formal offer to acquire, through SISA, all the RAH ordinary shares in issue at a price of R5.90 per share. The board of RAH is of the opinion that the offer price undervalues RAH notwithstanding the fact that Sun International has obtained the support of a substantial number of RAH shareholders at the offer price of R5.90 per share. SISA intends to defend the claim from Afrisun Leisure. Sun International intends to deal with Afrisun Leisure's quantification of any damages to which they claim to be entitled in its formal offer documentation to RAH shareholders and circular to Sun International shareholders, which are expected to be posted to shareholders in due course. At this stage Sun International is of the view that the damages claimed by Afrisun Leisure are materially incorrect.

Sun International intends to offer to acquire all or part of the offer shares for a cash consideration of 590c per RAH share ("the offer price"). The offer price represents the following upfront premium to the RAH share price prior to the release of the cautionary announcement:

* a 14.6% premium to the RAH market price of 515c per share as at 24 March 2006; and

* an 11.9% premium to the 30 day volume weighted average trading price of RAH for the period to 24 March 2006 of 527 cents per share.

The offer price will be escalated by an annual interest factor of 8% for every completed month or part thereof that the proposed acquisition takes to be implemented following 31 August 2006 and the offer price will be reduced by the per share amount of any distributions declared or paid by RAH to RAH shareholders in the interim period between 27 March 2006 and the final implementation date of the proposed acquisition.



Sun International shareholders are advised that as a result of the publication of this announcement, the cautionary announcement is now withdrawn.

Shareholders of Sun International are referred to the announcement released on SENS on Monday, 27 March 2006 wherein it was indicated that the board of directors of RAH had been requested to provide a response to Sun International regarding the proposed acquisition by Friday, 7 April 2006. The board of directors of RAH has indicated that it is not willing to proceed with the proposed acquisition in terms of a scheme of arrangement, as RAH finds the financial terms of the proposed acquisition unacceptable. This also implies inter alia that Sun International will not be given an opportunity to complete a high level due diligence investigation, with access to the company, in respect of RAH and its assets.



In light of the above, Sun International will continue carrying out its own independent high level investigation of RAH using available avenues of information. A final decision by Sun International whether or not to proceed with the proposed acquisition will be made by Wednesday, 10 May 2006. As indicated in the initial announcement, should Sun International proceed with the proposed acquisition, the proposed acquisition consideration will be a cash consideration of 590c per RAH share. The proposed acquisition consideration will be escalated by an annual interest factor of 8.0% for every completed month or part thereof that the proposed acquisition takes to be implemented following 31 August 2006. The proposed acquisition consideration will be reduced by the per share amount of any distributions declared or paid by the board of directors of RAH to RAH shareholders in the interim period between 27 March 2006 and the final implementation date of the proposed acquisition.



A further announcement of Sun International's intentions will be released on SENS and published in the press in due course. Shareholders of Sun International are accordingly advised to exercise caution when dealing in their Sun International shares until such further announcement is made.

Shareholders of Sun-Int are advised that the company has submitted a written notice to the board of directors of RAH wherein Sun- Int has expressed its interest in making an offer to acquire the entire issued ordinary share capital of RAH from the shareholders of RAH. The board of directors of RAH has been requested to provide a response to Sun- Int regarding the proposed acquisition by Friday, 7 April 2006. Sun- Int is proposing to acquire all the issued ordinary shares in RAH for a cash consideration of 590 cents per RAH share on the basis that the proposed acquisition will be implemented by the end of August 2006. It is Sun- Int's preferred route that the proposed acquisition be implemented by way of a scheme of arrangement in terms of section 311 of the Companies Act, 1973 (Act 61 of 1973), as amended, to be proposed by Sun- Int between RAH and the RAH ordinary shareholders in terms of which Sun- Int, or another company in the Sun- Int Group, will acquire all of the ordinary shares in RAH. Should a Scheme be implemented, RAH will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sun- Int and the listing of its shares on the JSE will be terminated. Should a Scheme not become operative, Sun- Int will make an offer to all RAH shareholders in terms of Section 440 of the Act.



Should Sun- Int proceed with the proposed acquisition, it could have an impact on the price at which its shares trade on the JSE. Shareholders are therefore advised to continue to exercise caution in their share dealings until further notice.

Continued growth in casino revenue and a further improvement in margins resulted in strong earnings growth for Sun-Int. Group revenue at R2.9 billion was 17% ahead of last year, which combined with an improvement in margins resulted in a 23% increase in EBITDA to R986 million. Gaming, rooms, and food and beverage revenue was 19%, 7% and 15% higher than in the previous year respectively. Other income of R97 million comprises a R16 million fair value adjustment on the Sun International Vacation Club interest free borrowings and an R81 million gain on the disposal of shares of Kerzner International Ltd. The group incurred higher foreign exchange losses due to the impact of the stronger rand on offshore cash and inter-company funding. Profit from discontinued operations comprises profits of R11 million from Ster Century Middle East and City Lodge Hotels Ltd, and the profit on the sale of the groups interest in City Lodge of R369 million. Adjusted headline earnings of R272 million were 43% ahead of the previous year and fully diluted adjusted headline earnings per share of 248c were 34% above last year.



Dividend

The board has declared an interim dividend of 135cps, which represents a 50% increase on last years interim dividend of 90cps.



Prospects

Sun-Int commented that the growth in casino revenue and improved outlook for the groups hotels and resorts should continue for the second half of the year. Accordingly, the group expects good growth in adjusted headline earnings per share for the full year, although the rate of growth in the second half of the year is expected to be below that experienced in the first half. The group intends to continue increasing the level of dividends per share at a rate in excess of the adjusted headline earnings per share growth rate.

SunInt published a business update on 25 October 2005 providing details of the trading for the quarter ended 30 September 2005. October and November trading has remained strong with revenues 14% and 22% above the previous year respectively. As a consequence of the strong trading and improved margins, adjusted headline earnings per share for the half year ending 31 December 2005 is expected to be between 30% and 40% above the same six month period in the previous year. This projection has been prepared using accounting policies, practices and disclosures consistent with those used in the presentation of results for the year ended 30 June 2005, and assuming that the rand/US Dollar exchange rate on converting foreign currency cash holdings remains at current levels. As a result of the profit on the sale of the group's interest in City Lodge Hotels Ltd, earnings per share for the half year ending 31 December 2005 is expected to be between 160% and 170% above the same six month period in the previous year. The revisions to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are likely to impact on the disclosures of the group's interim results for the six months ending 31 December 2005. While disclosures such as EBITDA and adjusted headline earnings will no longer be permitted under the revised IFRS, it is SunInt's intention to provide this analysis as supplementary information to the interim profit and dividend announcement which is expected to be published on or about 2 March 2006. This financial information has not been reviewed or reported on by the group's auditors.

The group achieved excellent results for the year, mainly due to continued strong growth in casino revenues, improved operating margins and lower borrowing costs. Group revenue at R5.1 billion (R4.5 billion) was 15% up on the previous year. Strong growth in gaming revenues continued in the second half with annual revenue at R3.9 billion up 18% on the prior year. Hotel and resort revenues remained under pressure, particularly at the upper end of the market. Consequently, rooms revenue showed only marginal improvement. The group EBITDA margin improved by one percentage point to 32.5%, resulting in a 19% increase in EBITDA to R1.7 billion (R1.4 billion). Net exceptional income of R253 million includes a mark-to-market write up of the group`s shareholding in Kerzner International Ltd (KZL) amounting to R86 million, and R104 million on the part realisation of the foreign currency translation reserve. Net interest expense at R170 million was R44 million below the previous year as a result of lower interest rates and strong operating cash flows. Taxation at R406 million (R270 million) was 50% up on the previous year due to improved profitability and the STC charges on increased dividends paid by the group. Headline earnings rose 28% to 534cps (418cps) and a final dividend of 110cps was declared.



Prospects

The group`s casinos will benefit from the anticipated ongoing growth in disposable income. The outlook for the group`s hotels and resorts has improved and the trend in forward bookings is up on last year. Accordingly, the group anticipates good growth in adjusted headline earnings per share in the year ahead and will again increase the level of dividends at a rate in excess of the earnings growth rate.
