Tiger Brands is required to publish a trading statement as soon as it is satisfied that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that its financial results for the period ending 30 September 2018 will differ by at least 20% from the prior comparative period.



As previously reported, Haco Tiger Brands (E.A) Ltd. (?Haco?), was disposed of with effect from 14 December 2017. As a result, it has been accounted for as a discontinued operation for the period up to the date of its disposal, with the comparative information restated accordingly.



Shareholders are accordingly advised that:

-Earnings per share (EPS) from total operations (including Haco) is expected to be between 421 cents and 709 cents lower or between 22% and 37% lower than the 1915 cents reported for the comparative period.

-Headline earnings per share (HEPS) from total operations (including Haco) is expected to be between 475 cents and 800 cents lower or between 22% and 37% lower than the 2161 cents reported for the comparative period.

-HEPS from continuing operations (excluding Haco) is expected to be between 474 cents and 797 cents lower or between 22% and 37% lower than the 2155 cents reported for the comparative period.



The information above reflects:

-A continuation of the challenging consumer and competitive environment, with ongoing volume and pricing pressures.

-Significant cost increases derived from the adverse movement in the Rand, fuel price increases, labour settlements and higher administered costs, which have yet to be recovered in selling price increases.

-The significant impact of the recall of products and suspension of operations involving certain of the Company?s Value Added Meats Processing facilities. There is no material change to the guidance previously published on SENS in respect of these matters.

-Potential further impairments in respect of intangible assets in the Personal Care category.



The information in this trading statement has not been reviewed or reported on by the Company's auditors. The results for the year ending 30 September 2018 are expected to be released on SENS on or about 22 November 2018.

Shareholders are referred to the SENS announcement issued by the company on 5 March 2018, relating to an order issued by the National Consumer Commission for the company to conduct a recall of certain identified Enterprise products. In that announcement, it was stated that in a batch of one of its products tested by the company on 14 February 2018, the presence of the ST6 strain could not be confirmed and that the relevant samples had been sent to an external laboratory for the identification of the strain. The test results were received on 15 March 2018, but these had proved inconclusive and, as a result, the samples were sent for further re- testing.



The purpose of this announcement is to update shareholders on the results of the independent laboratory re-testing which was carried out in respect of the presence of LST6 in the above samples which were manufactured at the Enterprise Polokwane processing facility. On 24 April 2018, Tiger Brands received confirmation of the presence of LST6 in these samples.



As reported previously, we have been actively engaging with the Department of Health and the National Institute of Communicable Diseases on our findings and will continue to collaborate with them on the actions taken to date to actively address our findings.



The Enterprise facilities in Polokwane, Pretoria and Germiston still remain closed while remedial work continues. An arrangement has been concluded between Pork Packers (which is based in Clayville) and our pig suppliers to contract slaughter on their behalf with effect from 2 May 2018.

Revenue for the year increased to R31.298 billion (2016: R30.588 billion), gross profit rose to R10.442 billion (2016: R9.719 billion), profit attributable to owners of the parent from continuing operations lowered to R3.011 billion (2016: R3.243 billion), while headline earnings per ordinary share from continuing operations grew to 2 154.7 cents per share (2016: 2 119.2 cents per share).



Final dividend

The company has declared an unchanged gross final cash dividend of 702 cents per ordinary share for the year ended 30 September 2017. This, together with the interim dividend of 378 cents per share, brings the total dividend for the year to 1 080 cents. This is an increase of 1% on last year's total dividend of 1 065 cents.



Company outlook

The economic outlook for 2018 is muted, with no current signs of a recovery in consumer spending while growth levels are likely to remain low. There is therefore little evidence of volume uplift in the year ahead. To this end, competition for market share is expected to intensify further.



Having largely been successful in enhancing margins, the group is well positioned to navigate this environment and pursue volume growth. This will be achieved by improving our market shares through enhanced and focused brand support, a re-energised approach to innovation, as well as by investing and growing with our customers. We will continue to focus on driving efficiencies and cost savings to provide the fuel for our growth.

Turnover for the interim period increased to R16.4 billion (2016: R15.3 billion), gross profit rose to R5.3 billion (2016: R4.9 billion), profit attributable to owners of the parent decreased to R1.687 billion (2016: R1.703 billion), while headline earnings per share from continuing operations grew to 1 035.7 cents per share (2016: 969.8 cents per share).



Interim dividend

The company has declared an interim dividend of 378 cents per share for the six month period ended 31 March 2017, which represents an increase of 4% compared to the previous interim dividend of 363 cents per share.



Company outlook

The outlook for the balance of the year is particularly challenging, with volumes in the domestic market having significantly slowed in the second quarter, while a recovery on the balance of the continent is not imminent. Having largely been successful in correcting margins and recovering exceptional cost push, the key challenge will be to manage market share and volume growth without compromising profitability. This will be driven by focused execution, targeted marketing investment to sustain the strength of the company's power brands and appropriate cost control measures.



Our associate companies also face similar challenges for the remainder of the year.

(Official Notice)
Group turnover increased by 12% for the four month period ended 31 January 2017, compared with the corresponding period last year. Turnover in the corresponding period excludes the contribution from TBCG (DFM), which was disposed of with effect from 25 February 2016. The growth in turnover was driven by a solid domestic performance while weak trading conditions on the rest of the continent, coupled with a stronger rand, impacted Exports and International.



The trading environment remains difficult. The focus will continue to be on optimising margins without sacrificing market share. This will be achieved through targeted investment in marketing and route to market activities, as well as through ongoing cost-saving initiatives. Good progress has been made on the fulfilment of the suspensive conditions with regard to the disposal of Tiger Brands? 51% shareholding in East African Tiger Brands Industries Plc. (?EATBI?) to its existing Ethiopian partner, East Africa Group (?EAG?).



In addition, the Board of Directors of Tiger Brands has decided to dispose of the Company?s 51% stake in its Kenyan business, Haco Tiger Brands (E.A.) Ltd. (?Haco?), to its local partner, who holds the remaining 49% of the company (the ?Transaction?).



A detailed review of the Haco business was conducted in the context of Tiger Brands? long term growth strategy and core competencies. In addition to products manufactured and marketed by Haco under its own brands, the majority of Haco?s business lies in the manufacture and distribution of products under licence, which is not aligned with our current operating model of owning leading FMCG brands. Taking into account these factors , it was decided that Haco would be better positioned under local Kenyan leadership and control. This has culminated in the local partner making an offer for Tiger Brands? 51% shareholding, at a price that was considered fair and reasonable.



The Transaction is subject to a number of suspensive conditions , including receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals in Kenya. The impact of the Transaction on Tiger Brands? earnings, headline earnings and net asset value per share will not be material.

The company's leading positions will be supported with accretive innovation, whilst sustaining the strength of the company's brands through targeted investment. As input cost inflation is expected to persist, cost-saving initiatives will receive renewed and more assertive focus to drive profitability. The creation of a high-performance culture will underpin the company's efforts.



Strategic review

A strategic review of the business is well advanced and aims to:

*Rejuvenate the domestic business to deliver sustainable profitable growth

*Establish a strong and profitable growth trend in the rest of Africa

*Fundamentally restructure and re-engineer the business to achieve a competitive cost base and provide savings for reinvestment

*Create a competitive organisational structure fit for growth over the medium and long term.



Many opportunities to realise short-term improvements have been identified and these will be implemented. The company is also taking a longer-term view to capitalise on the group's inherent strengths in the core South African market and take advantage of additional opportunities on the rest of the continent. The company will detail its plans for sustainable growth, supported by key metrics and clear targets during the course of the ensuing financial year.

(Official Notice)
The Board of Directors of Tiger Brands has decided to dispose of the company?s 51% stake in its Ethiopian business, EATBI, to its partner EAG, which holds the remaining 49% (the ?Transaction?).



Following a detailed review of the business, which was conducted together with our partner, including an assessment of EATBI?s core categories in the context of Tiger Brands? long term strategic focus and primary competencies, it was decided that EATBI would be better positioned under the ownership of EAG. This process culminated in EAG making an offer for Tiger Brands? 51% shareholding at a price that was considered fair and reasonable.



Ethiopia remains a market of significant potential and options will be explored to maximise opportunities in relevant product categories. The impact of the Transaction on Tiger Brands? earnings, headline earnings and net asset value per share will not be material.



The agreement relating to the disposal of the shares is subject to a number of suspensive conditions which are normal for a transaction of this nature, including the receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals by EAG in Ethiopia. The Transaction is expected to be formally closed by not later than November 2016. A further announcement will be made once the transaction has been concluded. The Transaction is below the JSE Listings Requirements Thresholds and is disclosed for information purposes only.

Turnover for the interim period increased to R15.894 billion (2015: R14.566 billion). Gross profit rose to R5.124 billion (2015: R4.795 billion), profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent from continuing operations jumped to R1.659 billion (2015: R1.535 billion), while headline earnings per share from continuing operations was higher at 977.8 cents per share (2015: 974.6 cents per share).



Interim dividend

The company has declared an interim dividend of 363 cents per share for the six months ended 31 March 2016, which represents an increase of 7% compared to the previous interim dividend of 339 cents per share.



Outlook

The outlook for the balance of the year remains challenging, with downside risk to the macro-economic environment, both in South Africa and in a number of African markets, likely to add further pressure on consumers. This will be exacerbated by increased inflationary pressures in the second half, when the full impact of the rand`s depreciation on the group?s domestic cost base will be felt. Against this background, we remain focused on the quality and strength of our brands and on our ability to deliver value to our consumers in a cost-effective manner. The key challenge will be to maintain volume momentum notwithstanding price increases that are currently being taken to partly offset the cost pressures referred to above.

16-Feb-2016
(Official Notice)
The group achieved a 7% increase in turnover from continuing operations in the four month period ended 31 January 2016, compared with the corresponding prior period. Domestic sales volumes softened marginally as a result of increased levels of pricing pressure and a slow-down in consumer demand. With consumers under considerable financial pressure , the impact of the depreciating rand and rising soft commodity prices was only partially offset by price increases.



The exports and international businesses delivered an improved underlying performance, benefiting from rand weakness and the turnaround of underperforming operations.



Given the sustained weakness of the rand, the inflationary pressures on the group?s raw material cost base are likely to intensify over the balance of the year. In a constrained consumer environment where competition is intense, it is expected that trading conditions will remain challenging as the company seeks to pass through price increases. The company?s portfolio of market leading brands, together with a rigorous focus on cost control will help to mitigate these challenges. Furthermore, volumes and margins will continue to be managed judiciously to ensure long term sustainable profit growth.



Shareholders are referred to the announcement issued on 14 December 2015 advising shareholders that Tiger Brands had reached agreement with Dangote Industries Ltd. (?DIL?) to dispose of its shareholding in Tiger Branded Consumer Goods plc of Nigeria (?TBCG?), subject to certain regulatory approvals.



Shareholders are advised that the approvals of the South African Reserve Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission of Nigeria have been obtained. The only remaining condition is the approval of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, which is expected shortly. A further announcement will be made once the transaction becomes unconditional.

Declaration of interim dividend number 142

Outlook

The outlook for the year ahead remains challenging, with low domestic economic growth, rising costs and job security

concerns weighing on the South African consumer. These factors are exacerbated by the weak rand which is fuelling inflationary pressures and intensifying the competitive trading dynamics already evident. The macro-economic outlook for the rest of sub-Saharan Africa is muted, while currency devaluations and foreign exchange liquidity are additional risks. However, Tiger Brands has the brands, people and capability to address these challenges. In addition, the group will continue to focus relentlessly on cost savings and efficiencies, as well as further investment in innovation, customer engagement and brand development.



As announced on 25 September 2015, Peter Matlare will step down as the group?s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with effect from 31 December 2015. The search for a successor is currently underway. Noel Doyle has been appointed interim CEO, with effect from 1 January 2016.

(Official Notice)
Tiger Brands is satisfied that sufficient certainty exists with regard to its performance for the twelve months ended 30 September 2014, to enable it to issue this trading statement.



As a consequence of an improved trading performance in the second half of the year, headline earnings per share from continuing operations will reflect an increase of between 13% to 16% compared to the prior year.



It is expected that earnings per share from continuing operations will be between 20% and 23% lower than that reported in the previous year. In this regard, reference is made to the trading statement issued on 15 May 2014 and to the results of the company for the half-year ended 31 March 2014 where a decision had been taken to impair certain assets related to the group?s investment in Dangote Flour Mills Plc ("DFM").



As reported previously, Dangote Agrosacks, a packaging subsidiary of DFM, was sold in December 2013. The results of this business were accounted for as a discontinued operation in both the 2013 and 2014 financial years. Including the profit contribution from the discontinued operation, the group?s earnings per share from total operations is expected to decline by between 21% and 24% whilst headline earnings per share from total operations is expected to increase by between 10% and 13% compared to the previous year.



In summary, the expected earnings for the 2014 financial year is as follows:-

2013 Restated*, % change and 2014 Earnings range

HEPS

* Continuing operations -- 1574 cents; 13% to 16%; 1779 to 1826 cents

* Total operations -- 1629 cents; 10% to 13%; 1792 to 1841 cents



EPS

*Continuing operations -- 1575 cents; -20% to -23%; 1260 to 1213 cents

* Total operations -- 1613 cent;s -21% to -24%; 1274 to 1226 cents

*Restated due to the adoption of IAS19(Revised) as per SENS announcement released on 21 May 2014



The company is expected to release its final results for the year ended 30 September 2014 on 19 November 2014 at which time full details in respect of the performance of the Group will be provided.

(C)
Turnover jumped by 11% R14.9 billion (2013: R13.4 billion). Gross profit rose by 8% to R4.6 billion (2013: R4.3 billion), while profit attributable to owners of the parent decreased to R631.9 million (2013: R1.3 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per ordinary share from continuing operations grew by 7% to 855.5cps (2013: 801.6cps).



Dividend

The company has declared an interim dividend of 329cps for the half year ended 31 March 2014.



Prospects

The board remains confident that the group?s strategies are appropriate for the businesses and will ultimately deliver the desired outcomes. Trading conditions in the domestic market continue to be challenging, with ongoing volume pressures resulting from continued constraints on consumer spending and rising inflation. This is exacerbated by a highly competitive landscape with limited volume growth in many FMCG categories. Margin pressures should ease over the balance of the year as pricing is adjusted to partly offset the higher input costs. However, this could negatively affect volumes.



The improvement in the performance of DFM remains a key priority for the group and the action plans being implemented are aimed at reducing the rate of losses being sustained by the business over the balance of the financial year. Exports and the remainder of the International businesses are expected to continue to deliver strong growth, albeit at a slower pace given the recent strengthening of the Rand exchange rate.

Shareholders are referred to the notice that has been distributed to shareholders of the 69th annual general meeting of shareholders of Tiger Brands dated 13 December 2013, which meeting is to be held on Tuesday, 11 February 2014, at 14:00, at 3010 William Nicol Drive, Bryanston, 2021. Reference in particular is made to the proposed special resolution number 1 of the Notice relating to the authority to be granted to the directors under section 44 of the Companies Act (2008) to grant financial assistance for the purpose of, or in connection with, the subscription for or purchase of shares in the Company or a related or inter-related company (the "Resolution").



Certain institutional shareholders have indicated that they feel the authority sought by the Resolution should not be unlimited and that there should be a maximum aggregate value of any such financial assistance in any one year. Although the Company intended the authority to be broad taking into account, inter alia, the inherent solvency and liquidity protection contained in the Companies Act and other shareholder protections contained in the JSE Listings Requirements, it does acknowledge the concern raised by these shareholders.



Accordingly, the Company will propose at the meeting of shareholders on 11 February 2014, a modification to special resolution number 1 by the inclusion of the following sentence at the end of the Resolution: "The authority granted under this special resolution number 1 is limited to financial assistance to a maximum per transaction of R500 million and an aggregate maximum value of R2.5 billion (being approximately 5% of the market capitalisation of the Company as at 28 January 2014) for any such transactions in any one year during which this authority is granted." Any existing proxy forms lodged by shareholders for the general meeting of shareholders of Tiger Brands on Tuesday, 11 February 2014 remain valid, unless revised proxy forms are lodged (which shareholders are entitled to do) in accordance with the procedures set out in the Notice. The record date for the meeting remains unchanged.

(C)
Turnover increased to R27 billion (R22.7 billion). Gross profit rose to R8.4 billion (R8.2 billion). Net attributable profit declined to R2.6 billion (R2.7 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share from continuing operations fell to 1 570cps (1 689cps).



Outlook

A gross final ordinary dividend of 555cps has been declared.



Outlook

Trading conditions are expected to remain challenging for the foreseeable future, with the ongoing weakness in the domestic economy continuing to affect consumers spending ability. In this environment, competition is expected to further intensify. Margin pressures are likely to persist due to volatile commodity prices, fluctuating exchange rates and rising energy costs. The continued growth of the value sector in the domestic market is likely to exert further pressure on premium brands.



Notwithstanding these challenges, the group is well positioned to compete more effectively as a result of the various strategic initiatives currently being implemented. The brand preference for Tiger Brands products remains high and will be strengthened through increased brand investment and innovation. The performance of DFM is expected to improve over the next year. Tiger Brands is satisfied that DFM is positioned appropriately in the right categories and that solid progress is being made in all key elements of the business. The remaining international and export businesses are expected to continue to deliver good growth.

Outlook

The process of turning around the Nigerian businesses is well underway and it is expected that the businesses will fully achieve the groups investment case within a two to three-year timeframe. Significant capital is being invested in the domestic businesses over the next 18 months to improve operational efficiencies and position the group to compete more effectively in a value-driven economy. These initiatives should start to yield results by the second half of the 2014 financial year. In the short term, volatility in soft commodity prices and foreign currency movements is likely to persist, exacerbating a tough trading environment.

12-Feb-2013
(Official Notice)
The following is the trading update that was tabled at the annual general meeting of shareholders that was held today.



The domestic trading environment continues to be challenging, characterised by constrained consumer spending, intense competition and rising input cost inflation. These factors, which are exacerbated in certain businesses by volatile soft commodity prices and Rand weakness, have affected the group?s performance and are likely to persist for some time. The ongoing challenges in the rice market that were reported at the end of the last financial year remain. Rice turnover for the first quarter was lower than the turnover for the corresponding prior year period, notwithstanding a small improvement in volumes and higher raw material input costs.



The group's focus on driving efficiencies and optimising cost structures remains a key strategic thrust in ensuring that the group is able to achieve sustained volume growth in the future.



The Dangote Flour Mills Plc acquisition was concluded with effect from 4 October 2012 and represents a significant growth opportunity for the group in the medium term. However, in the short term, as previously indicated, the acquisition will be earnings dilutive. Operationally, a significant amount of work will be required to restore the business to an appropriate level of profitability. Some progress has been achieved; however, the full benefits will only materialise over the next two years.

Dividend

Outlook

Given the ongoing weakness in the global economy, the continued volatility in soft commodity prices and the rand exchange rate, it is expected that 2013 will be another challenging year. In the domestic economy, consumers are likely to remain under pressure as a result of rising costs and increased unemployment, whilst competition will remain intense. On the balance of the African continent, growth prospects look encouraging. However, none of these economies will be immune to the declining fortunes of the global economy. The group's focus will be on delivering against its strategies, with precision, in order to achieve sustained growth and a further strengthening of its brands.

Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 295cps has been declared.



Outlook

Consumers continue to face pressure from rising inflation, including the effects of the weaker rand exchange rate, higher utility costs and rising commodity prices. The group expects that domestic economic conditions will continue to be challenging for the rest of the financial year and consumer spending will remain under pressure. Price increases to recover costs will therefore have to be judiciously managed and cost control and operational efficiencies throughout the supply chain and support functions will remain key focus areas. The growing exports business, together with the group's recent acquisitions, should assist in providing a solid platform for growth, in line with the group's broader international expansion strategy.

(Official Notice)
In the trading update issued by Tiger Brands on 14 February 2012, the company advised that, despite difficult trading conditions, headline earnings per share were expected to show satisfactory growth for the year ending 30 September 2012 as compared to the 2011 reported earnings. The JSE has advised that this is regarded as a general profit forecast in terms of the provisions of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements.



The following key assumptions were considered in arriving at the above general forecast which was compiled using the Group's accounting policies as set out in Tiger Brands' recently published 2011 annual report:

*Consumer spending on non-durable consumer goods will remain under pressure during the remaining period of the current financial year;

*Soft commodity prices will gradually start to decline in the second half of the financial year;

*The Rand/Dollar exchange rate will remain fairly stable within a range of R7,75 to R8,00 to the US Dollar;

*Interest rates will remain more or less constant for the remainder of the financial year;

*The price of crude oil will remain fairly stable within a range of USD110 to USD118 per barrel; and

*The acquisitions made during the latter half of the 2011 financial year should contribute positively to the group`s earnings.

This general forecast has neither been reviewed nor reported on by the company's auditors.

Shareholders were advised that at the annual general meeting of shareholders held on 14 February 2012, the special resolutions as well as the ordinary resolutions contained in the notice of the annual general meeting dated 15 December 2011 (as amended in terms of the SENS announcement dated 19 January 2012) were passed without modification by the requisite majorities. The special resolutions will be lodged for registration with the CIPC.



Appointment of new chairman

As previously advised, Andre Parker has replaced Lex van Vught as chairman of the company upon Lex's resignation as director and chairman with effect from the close of the annual general meeting referred to above.
14-Feb-2012
(Official Notice)
The trading environment continues to be characterised by the slow recovery of consumer spending in the domestic market and rising cost inflation, resulting in an overall market volume decline in the categories in which the company operates. The trading performance for the four months ended 31 January 2012 is reflective of this market contraction, although the power of the group's basket of leading consumer brands continues to strongly underpin the group's performance. Net sales have increased due to improved price realisations, thereby minimizing the impact of the volume declines on operating margins.



The results for 2012 are expected to benefit from the acquisitions concluded in the second half of the previous financial year and the relative consumer buoyancy within the rest of the African continent. For the year to date, the weaker rand exchange rate has also had a positive impact on the export businesses. The acquisition of the Status brand became effective on 1 November 2011 and the group increased its shareholding in Langeberg and Ashton Foods to 100%, also with effect from 1 November 2011. Despite the difficult trading conditions, headline earnings per share is expected to show satisfactory growth for the year ending 30 September 2012 as compared to the 2011 reported earnings.
23-Nov-2011
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were advised that an investor presentation will take place on 23 November 2011 commencing at 09:30 following upon the release of the results for the year ended 30 September 2011, which results were released earlier this morning. Shareholders are advised that the investor presentation will be available on the Tiger Brands website www.tigerbrands.com.
23-Nov-2011
(C)
Turnover increased by 6% to R20.4 billion (R19.3 billion). Net attributable profit was up by 18% to R2.6 billion (R2.2 billion). In addition, headline earnings per ordinary share grew to 1 575c (1 393cps).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 510cps has been declared.



Outlook

Trading conditions are expected to remain difficult during 2012, with unemployment and limited disposable incomes continuing to negatively affect consumer spending. Food price inflation is likely to persist, driven by increases in global soft commodity prices, packaging, transport and energy costs, as well as rising wage demands. The volatility of foreign currency exchange rates is expected to add to these challenges. Management is confident, however, that the inherent strength and continued relevance of the group's well balanced portfolio of brands, will provide acceptable growth in the 2012 financial year. In line with Tiger Brands' strategy, management will continue to selectively seek value enhancing opportunities to expand the group's geographic footprint.

Tiger Brands received notice on Friday, 11 November 2011, from First State Investments (UK) Ltd on behalf of First State Investments International Ltd ("FSI INT"), First State Investment Management (UK) Ltd ("FSIM UK") and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (their ultimate holding company).

15-Nov-2011
(Official Notice)
Tiger Brands is satisfied that sufficient certainty exists with regard to its performance for the year ended 30 September 2011 to enable it to issue this trading statement. Shareholders are advised that, having considered the latest financial information in respect of the year ended 30 September 2011, it is expected that headline earnings per share ("HEPS") and earnings per share ("EPS") will reflect increases of between 10% and 15% and between 15% and 19% respectively, compared to the previous financial year. The differential in the rate of growth between HEPS and EPS is primarily due to an abnormal gain in 2011 arising from the recognition of the company's equity interest in National Foods Holdings Ltd of Zimbabwe, which was not previously accounted for.



As advised previously to shareholders, Tiger Brands implemented its BEE Phase II transaction in October 2009. This transaction gave rise to a once- off charge amounting to R152.7 million after tax, which was disclosed as an abnormal item in the income statement for the year ended 30 September 2010. Excluding this amount, HEPS in 2011 is expected to show an increase of between 3% and 7% compared to the adjusted figure of 1 489.5 cents reported in respect of the previous financial year. The results for the year ended 30 September 2011 will be released on 23 November 2011 when a detailed analysis of the performance of the company will be provided.

Shareholders were advised that, having considered the latest financial information in respect of the six months ended 31 March 2011, it is expected that both group headline earnings per share ("HEPS") and earnings per share ("EPS") will reflect an improvement of between 10% and 15% compared to that achieved in the corresponding period of the previous financial year. As previously advised, the company's BEE Phase II transaction which was approved by shareholders on 12 October 2009, became effective on 20 October 2009. Arising from this transaction, a once-off abnormal charge amounting to R150.7 million after tax was included in HEPS and EPS for the six months ended 31 March 2010. Excluding this once-off abnormal charge from the 2010 half year results, it is anticipated that both HEPS and EPS for the six months ended 31 March 2011 will reflect a decrease of between 1% and 3% compared to that achieved in the corresponding period last year. The results for the six months ended 31 March 2011 will be released on 30 May 2011 when a detailed analysis of the performance of the company will be provided.

Shareholders of Tiger Brands were advised that the company has entered into an agreement in terms of which Tiger Brands will acquire the Status trademarks and related intellectual property, including finished goods stock (collectively the "Status assets") from Unilever PLC and Unilever South Africa (Pty) Ltd (hereafter collectively referred to as "Unilever"). Status is a South African male deodorant brand which was originally owned by the Sara Lee Corporation and was acquired by Unilever as part of the global transaction in which Unilever acquired Sara Lee's Personal Care business. The South African competition authorities have approved the acquisition by Unilever of Sara Lee's Personal Care business locally subject to Unilever disposing of the Status trademark. Further to this, Tiger Brands has entered into an agreement to dispose of its Mousson trademark to Unilever. Mousson participates within the South African foam bath and lotion personal care categories.



Rationale

The acquisition of the Status assets provides Tiger Brands with a meaningful presence in the South African male deodorant market segment. Further to this, there is the potential to leverage the brand's long standing equity into the wider male grooming sector. The acquisition also provides Tiger Brands with critical mass in the personal care category which will facilitate a further optimisation of the company's current product portfolio. The turnover attributable to the Status brand for the year ended 30 June 2010 was approximately R100 million and the attributable turnover for Mousson for the year ended 30 September 2010 was approximately R24 million.



Conditions precedent

The acquisition and disposal are subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions precedent including the unconditional approval by the South African Competition Authorities ("Competition Authorities") or the conditional approval by the Competition Authorities on terms and conditions acceptable to both Tiger Brands and Unilever. The transactions fall below the JSE transaction thresholds and therefore are for information purposes only.

The economic environment in which the Company has been operating continues to be challenging. Whilst the South African economy has moved into a recovery phase, consumer spending continues to be impacted by low levels of job creation and a shrinking labour market. Although the current low interest rate environment has brought some relief to the consumer, the tight economic conditions continue to exert pressure on consumer expenditure, particularly in the non-durable sector. At a trading level, the Company`s rice, groceries, beverages and home - personal care categories have achieved good volume growth for the current financial year to date.



This is consistent with the improved performances recorded in the last quarter of the previous financial year. However, the Company's overall sales volume growth has been constrained, with volumes being under pressure primarily in the maize and wheat categories. Flour volumes, in particular, have softened as a result of the highly competitive trading environment. Core volume growth in the snacks - treats category has been subdued, although sales have benefited from recent new product introductions. The trading environment is expected to improve in the second half, but group operating margins are likely to remain under pressure. Reduced operating debt levels and continuing low interest rates are expected to impact positively on the results for 2011.



Expansion into rest of Africa

Good progress has been made with regard to the finalisation of the three acquisitions which were announced in November 2010. It is expected that these acquisitions will be brought to account by Tiger Brands during the course of the current financial year. Consistent with Tiger Brands` growth strategy for the rest of the African Continent, shareholders are advised that Tiger Brands has concluded an agreement to acquire the entire issued share capital of Davita Trading (Proprietary) Limited, a South African company engaged in the export of powdered seasonings and beverage products to customers primarily on the African Continent. This acquisition will further increase the Company`s footprint on the Continent. Full details of this acquisition, including pro-forma financial effects, are included in a separate announcement being released on SENS simultaneously with this trading update.

(Official Notice)
The Competition Commission has referred its findings of price fixing of milled white maize to the Competition Tribunal for prosecution. The commission has been investigating price fixing in the milling industry since 2007. The investigations led to the referral of two cases to the Tribunal, the wheat milling referral, which was referred recently as well as today's white maize milling referral. The milling investigations were initiated following Premier Foods' disclosure during the bread cartel investigation that the cartel, which involved largely the same companies, also covered their wheat and maize milling operations.



With respect to white maize milling the Commission found evidence of price fixing by Pioneer Foods, Foodcorp, Godrich Milling, Progress Milling, Pride Milling, Westra Milling, Brenner Mills, Blinkwater Mills, TWK Milling, NTK Milling, Carolina Mills, Kalel Foods, Bothaville Milling, Paramount Mills, Keystone Milling, Premier Foods and Tiger Brands. The maize milling case involves more firms than the wheat milling case, and the Commission may add more names to the referral papers as firms come forward to settle and disclose what they know of the cartel.



In its investigation the Commission found that the respondents discussed pricing, agreed on price increases and the timing of such increases. This was facilitated through meetings and telephone calls between the employees and representatives of these firms. The meetings and telephone calls took place at both regional and national levels and were mutually reinforcing. The Commission has asked the Tribunal to impose an administrative penalty of 10 percent of annual turnover for the 2009 financial year on each of the firms involved, except Premier Foods and Tiger Brands who were granted conditional immunity from prosecution by the Commission provided that they fully co-operate in the Commission's investigation and prosecution of this case. The Commission is concerned about the prevalence of cartels in staple food products. This has a huge impact on the prices of these products, and therefore undermines efforts to fight poverty in the country.

(Official Notice)
The Competition Commission, subsequent to its investigation into collusion in the wheat milling market, has referred its findings to the Competition Tribunal against Pioneer Foods (Pty) Ltd ("Pioneer"), Foodcorp (Pty) Ltd trading as Ruto Mills ("Foodcorp"), Godrich Milling (Pty) Limited ("Godrich"), Premier Foods (Pty) Ltd ("Premier Foods") and Tiger Brands Ltd ("Tiger Brands"). The case was initiated following revelations by Premier Foods during the bread cartel investigation that the cartel, which involved largely the same companies, also covered their milling operations. Premier Foods and Tiger Brands were subsequently granted conditional immunity from prosecution by the Commission provided that they fully co-operate in the Commission's investigation and prosecution of this case.



In its investigation the Commission found that the respondents contravened the Competition Act by engaging in price fixing and dividing markets by allocating customers. This was facilitated through secret meetings and telephone calls between the employees of these firms. Arrangements seem to have been designed to, amongst other things, prevent price wars and discounting in the industry. The meetings were held at various venues, including churches, stadia and hotels. Premier Foods, Tiger Brands, Foodcorp and Pioneer Foods control more than 90% of the wheat flour market. All four mill their own wheat into flour and use it to supply both their own bakeries and independent parties such as chain stores and smaller bakeries. Only Godrich does not have significant baking operations of its own. Premier Foods, Tiger Brands and Pioneer Foods have mills throughout the country, while Foodcorp and Godrich have mills in Gauteng. Flour is the main ingredient in the production of bread. The Commission has asked the Tribunal to impose an administrative penalty of 10 percent of annual turnover for the 2009 financial year on each of the firms involved, except Premier Foods and Tiger Brands which have been granted conditional immunity.

Shareholders are referred to a report that appeared on Bloomberg this morning, in which the Deputy Competition Commissioner was quoted as saying that the competition commission has probed South Africa's grain millers in relation to market allocation and price fixing and that its findings will be referred to the competition tribunal. The announcement referred to Tiger Brands as being one of the "targets" of this investigation.



Tiger Brands has been informed by the competition commission that its complaint referral has not yet been made to the competition tribunal. Tiger Brands entered into an agreement with the competition commission in November 2007 in terms of which Tiger Brands was granted conditional immunity from prosecution before the competition tribunal for its involvement in cartel activities in the milling industry within South Africa, subject to certain conditions. In the event that the competition commission does refer its milling investigation to the competition tribunal for determination with Tiger Brands cited as a co-respondent, no relief is expected to be sought against Tiger Brands. The competition commission has undertaken to provide to Tiger Brands a copy of the complaint referral as soon as it has been referred to the competition tribunal.

(Official Notice)
The trading environment in which the company operates continues to be characterised by a sustained slowdown in consumer spending and rapidly declining food inflation.



The trading performance for the four months ended 31 January 2010 is reflective of this market contraction, resulting in an overall decline in sales volumes which is expected to begin to reverse only in the second half of the calendar year. Turnover has been particularly impacted by price deflation on the company's staple product categories such as wheat, rice and maize. The results for 2010 are expected to benefit from the recent acquisition of the Crosse - Blackwell mayonnaise business, reduced debt levels and lower interest rates when compared to the prior year. Despite the difficult trading conditions, headline earnings per share, before taking into account the once-off IFRS 2 charges relating to the recently concluded BEE Phase II transaction, are expected to show satisfactory growth in real terms for the year ending 30 September 2010.

Capital reduction out of share premium in lieu of final dividend

At the general meeting of shareholders of the company held on 12 October 2009, the board of directors were given the general authority to make payments to shareholders out of the company's share premium account. Pursuant to this authority, the directors have decided to declare a capital distribution (in lieu of the final dividend) out of share premium of 459 cents per share, for the year ended 30 September 2009.

Headline earnings per share is, however, expected to show satisfactory growth in real terms for the financial year ending 30 September 2010.

The unbundling and separate listing of the company's Healthcare interests in August 2008 and the planned disposal this year of the company's interest in Sea Harvest has given rise for the need to distinguish in this trading statement between earnings from continuing operations, which exclude the Healthcare and Sea Harvest results, and total group earnings which include the Healthcare results for the comparative period ended 31 March 2008 as well as the results of Sea Harvest in both the comparative and current periods.



Shareholders are advised that, having considered the latest financial information in respect of the six months ended 31 March 2009, it is expected that headline earnings per share from continuing operations will reflect an improvement of between 5% and 9% compared to that achieved in the corresponding period of the previous financial year. Earnings per share from continuing operations for the six months ended 31 March 2009 is expected to be between 21% and 25% above that achieved in the same period of the previous financial year.

According to Business Report, a bottom-line boost of between R150 million and R200 million in synergies could be achieved by Tiger Brands if its proposed bid for rival AVI Ltd was successful. UBS analyst Renier Swanepoel said that if the two groups were simply put together at the combined cash and share offer, worth R24.00 a share, it would result in "about 7% headline earnings per share ("HEPS") dilution in financial 2009". Nevertheless, Swanepoel expected that this dilution would be offset by cost and revenue synergies of between R150 million and R200 million, making the acquisition HEPS accretive.

Outlook

The FMCG business continues to face challenges in the form of ongoing pressure on consumer spending and rising global prices for soft commodities and other key raw materials. It is likely therefore, that the growth in operating income for the full year ending 30 September 2008 will be lower than that recorded for the first six months.



Adcock Ingram is expected to sustain its current performance for the remainder of the year, assisted by the recently legislated single exit price increase of 6.5% on pharmaceutical products, effective from May 2008. Including the full year results for Adcock Ingram, and notwithstanding the difficult trading environment, it is expected that headline earnings for the full year ending 30 September 2008 will show growth in real terms.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders of Tiger Brands are referred to the announcement made on SENS on 12 February 2008, in which shareholders were informed of the receipt by Tiger Brands of a complaint referral regarding alleged anti-competitive practices by Adcock Ingram Critical Care (Pty) Ltd ("AICC"). This announcement informed shareholders that Tiger Brands had commissioned an enquiry into the matters raised by the Competition Commission in the complaint referral, for the purpose of determining the veracity or otherwise thereof.



Whilst the internal verification process is not yet finalised, significant progress has been made. Pursuant to an engagement between the lawyers representing Tiger Brands and AICC on the one hand and the Commission on the other hand, AICC will, notwithstanding that the internal verification process remains incomplete, file an answering affidavit as soon as is possible but no later than 28 March 2008. AICC intends to respond in a manner that will preserve its legal position. Upon finalisation of the internal verification process, the board of Tiger Brands will take a final decision regarding its further conduct in the matter.



Shareholders are also referred to various cautionary announcements with the most recent one being published on 29 January 2008, in which Tiger Brands provided shareholders with information regarding the unbundling process and separate listing of its healthcare interests on the JSE Ltd. As the company is not currently in a position to formally respond to the allegations contained in the Commission's complaint referral, it is not possible to provide a definitive timetable with regard to the proposed unbundling and separate listing of Adcock Ingram. Tiger Brands remains committed to the strategic imperatives of the unbundling and will, at the earliest opportunity, provide an indication of the proposed timetable for the transaction. Accordingly, shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution in their dealings in the securities of the company until such time as a further announcement is made.

The difference in the expected growth rates at the "headline earnings per share" and "earnings per share" levels, arises from the exclusion from headline earnings, in 2006, of the abnormal profit of R337 million relating to the international disposals.

Tiger Brands recently concluded the following transactions:

*the disposal a 19.7% interest in Pescanova SA of Spain. The investment in Pescanova SA represented the sole remaining asset of ICS Holdings;

*the disposal of the company's interest in Cag-Tech Mauritius Ltd through which Tiger Brands held an effective 17% interest in Agro-Tech Foods Ltd of India.

As a result of the two transactions, Tiger Brands received, in the aggregate, cash proceeds of some R383 million, which would be applied to reduce group borrowings. These disposals are in line with the company's strategic objective, of, where appropriate, owning the majority shares, and exercising management control over its international interests.



The disposals would result in the realisation of previously accrued fair value gains, which were, at the time, accounted for as part of equity. The realisation of these gains would be accounted for through the income statement, resulting in an abnormal profit of approximately R337 million. This abnormal profit would not form part of the company's headline earnings in the current financial year.



Tiger Brands is to issue a trading update on 23 February 2006 to coincide with the annual general meeting of shareholders.

On 17 August 2005 the company advised that, based on its results for the year to date and the trading outlook for the remainder of the year, it was expecting that headline earnings per share for the twelve months ending 30 September 2005 would reflect an improvement of between 20% and 30% compared to that achieved in the previous financial year. In that announcement it was also stated that earnings per share for the twelve months to 30 September 2005 was expected to be between 40% and 50% higher than that achieved in the previous year.



Shareholders are advised that, having considered the latest financial information relevant to the year-ended 30 September 2005, it is now expected that HEPS will reflect an improvement of between 30% and 35% compared to that achieved in the previous financial year. EPS for the twelve months to 30 September 2005 is now expected to be between 50% and 55% higher than that achieved last year. The reason for the disparity between the rates of increase in EPS and HEPS, as previously advised, is the reduction in attributable earnings in the prior year caused by the impairment in that year of the group's investment in 50% held associate C - T Malt. The impairment write-down was excluded for the purpose of determining HEPS in 2004.

At the release of the interim results on 18 May 2005, shareholders were advised that the rate of increase in headline earnings per share (`HEPS`) for the half- year ended 31 March 2005 (29%) was not expected to be sustained for the full financial year, although the annual results would still reflect good growth in real terms. Based on the results for the year to date and the trading outlook for the remainder of the year, it is expected that HEPS for the twelve months ending 30 September 2005 will reflect an improvement of between 20% and 30% compared to that achieved in the previous financial year. Earnings per share (`EPS`) for the twelve months to 30 September 2005 is expected to be between 40% and 50% higher than that achieved last year. The reason for the disparity between the rates of increase in EPS and HEPS is the reduction in attributable earnings for the prior year, caused by the impairment in that year of the group`s investment in 50% held associate C - T Malt. The impairment expense was excluded for the purpose of calculating HEPS in 2004.



Pursuant to the announcement on 14 July 2005 with regard to the proposed staff empowerment transaction, an after-tax cost of approximately R50m will be incurred in the 2005 financial year. This amount has been taken into account in arriving at the expected increase in HEPS for 2005 of between 20% and 30%, and primarily relates to the cash grant payable by the Tiger operating subsidiaries to the Tiger Brands General Staff Trust for the purpose of funding the purchase price of the Tiger Brands shares to be allocated to qualifying employees (for no consideration) upon implementation of the scheme. A circular will be sent to shareholders outlining the details of the empowerment transaction on or about 26 August 2005.



It is expected that the results for the twelve months ending 30 September 2005 will be released on 24 November 2005.
