The Cash Dividend constitutes a foreign dividend, as defined in section 1 of the Income Tax Act, 1962 (?ITA?), and is a dividend for purposes of dividends tax (?DT?) imposed under Part VIII of Chapter II of the ITA, since the ?B? Preference Shares are listed on the JSE Ltd. and thus constitute a ?listed share?, as contemplated in section 64D of the ITA.



An exemption from DT is provided for in the ITA in respect of:

(i) foreign dividends paid to a South African resident company; or

(ii) dividends paid to a non-resident to the extent that the dividend is paid by a foreign company in respect of listed shares, provided certain administrative procedures are complied with.



In terms of the ITA, DT of 20% will be withheld for those holders of ?B? Preference Shares (??B? Preference Shareholders?) who are not exempt from DT. ?B? Preference Shareholders who are not exempt from DT will therefore receive a net dividend of 1639.36438 cents per ?B? Preference Share.

Fulfilment of conditions precedent:

The Acquisition Agreements are subject to a number of conditions precedent, including: (a) the Namibian Stock Exchange (?NSX?) approving the listing of the linked units (the ?Listing?); (b) FRP raising at least 400 million Namibia Dollars (?NAD?), with the option to increase to NAD600 million, through the issue of linked units to a limited number of investors by way of a private placement (the ?Private Placement?); (c) the directors of Tradegro Holdings (Pty) Ltd. confirming that they are satisfied with the outcome of the Private Placement; and (d) the Namibian Competition Commission approving the acquisition of one of the property companies that will be acquired by FRP as part of the Transaction.

Tradehold and VestIN shareholders (?Shareholders?) are referred to the announcement released in Bermuda and on SENS on 22 August 2017 in which Tradehold advised that it had taken the first steps in what will be a series of transactions which will give effect to the reorganisation of its group through the separation of its property interests from its non-property interests (?the Restructure?).



Update on the Restructure

Tradehold has been engaging with such parties to fulfil the remaining condition precedent, failing which it will seek an alternative structure so as to achieve the same result for its shareholders.



Proposed effective date

Shareholders are advised that the above mentioned outstanding condition precedent has resulted in a delay to the original transaction timetable. It is therefore now anticipated that the Restructure will be effective by the end of Tradehold?s financial year, 28 February 2018.

Notice is hereby given to the Cumulative, Redeemable ?A? Preference shareholders of the publication on the company?s website (www.tradehold.co.za ) of the Unaudited Interim Financial Statements for the six months to 31 August 2017. Publication of the company?s unaudited interim financial statements for the six months to 31 August 2017 has already been issued on SENS on 9 November 2017 .

(C)
Revenue for the interim period rose to GBP55.5 million (2016: GBP20.9 million). Operating profit shot up to GBP40.1 million (2016: GBP19.5 million) whilst profit attributable to owners of the parent was GBP10.8 million (2016: GBP10.9 million). In addition, headline earnings per share increased to GBP3.5 pence per share (2016: GBP1.3 pence per share).



Ordinary share cash dividend

The board has decided not to declare an interim dividend.



Company outlook

Bedding down the restructuring of Tradehold into two fully independent and focused entities will be a major objective of senior management in the coming months. As its financial services division at this stage represents only about 6.5% of total assets, the aim will be, once it is on its own, to grow this business strongly over time both organically and through acquisitions. In the case of the property division, the aim will be not so much to add to the size of the portfolios in its main markets but to use the excellent platform they already offer to unlock the full potential of the individual properties owned.



The political volatility and economic instability dominating the UK and South Africa present the property market with enormous challenges. However, as a board we believe we have shown our ability to navigate our way around these challenges. But more than that, we believe our results for the past reporting period amply demonstrate that management possesses the entrepreneurial skills to turn the challenges in these markets to our advantage. We are therefore confident that we shall be able to generate acceptable results for the second half of the year.

Company outlook

Political and financial volatility are expected to continue if not escalate in the UK as the Brexit negotiations progress and the implications of the separation from the rest of the EU become increasingly clear. However, we are confident that Moorgarth is well positioned to cope with the changing environment. Our expanding serviced-office accommodation is playing an increasingly important role in income generation while we expect to continue benefiting from management's entrepreneurial flair, supported by the Group's ready access to finance, in acquiring top-quality assets at highly competitive prices in a market characterised by investor uncertainty. At the same time the properties in Moorgarth's existing portfolio all still offer considerable potential for further value enhancement which are being actively pursued.



Although the economic slowdown in our Southern African markets has led to certain projects being temporarily placed on hold, we have the fullest confidence that with improving agricultural and mining conditions we shall be able to implement and add to our present development pipeline. At the same time we shall be placing a strong accent on developing and growing our newly acquired South African portfolio. As a board we are therefore confident that the Group will continue to provide an above-average return on investment, with our financial services divisions continuing to maintain its growth momentum.



Any reference to future financial performance included in this statement has not been reviewed and reported on by the Group's external auditors and does not constitute an earnings forecast.

?A? Preference Shareholders are advised that the Dividend Withholding Tax (?DWT?) rate has increased from 15% to 20% following the Minister of Finance?s budget speech. The effective date of the change is 22 February 2017.



The Directors wish to refer the ?A? Preference Shareholders to the gross cash dividend of 19.59722 cents per ?A? Preference Share for the period 1 December 2016 to 1 March 2017 published on SENS on 7 February 2017. The distribution constitutes a foreign dividend as defined in section 1 of the Income Tax Act (?ITA?) and is a dividend for purposes of DWT, since the shares are listed on the JSE Ltd.



An exemption from DWT is provided for in terms of the ITA in respect of foreign dividends paid to a South African company and to a non- resident to the extent that it is paid in respect of listed shares, provided certain administrative procedures are complied with. The ITA further provides for an exemption from income tax in respect of foreign dividends received or accrued in respect of listed shares.



Shareholders who are not exempt from the DT will therefore receive a net dividend of 15.67778 cents per ?A? Preference Share, after applying the revised DWT rate of 20%.

Dividend

The board has decided not to declare an interim dividend.



Outlook

The UK market is expected to remain volatile while the country navigates the complex process of withdrawing from the EU over a likely period of two years.



In terms of our UK operations Tradehold therefore remains careful in the acquisition of new properties while rigorously managing assets already in the portfolio to ensure they deliver optimal benefits. Tradehold's serviced office business should benefit in the current uncertain economic conditions, as it offers flexible occupation contracts for its clients. The board is comfortable that Reward's highly skilled and experienced management team will continue to capitalise on the opportunities of a changing market with vision but caution. The group is also confident of unlocking value from its existing opportunities in Tradehold Africa.



Judging by the performance of the companies in the group since the end of the reporting period, the board expects Tradehold to improve on the results achieved in the 2016 financial year.

Net profit attributable to the owners of the parent for the six months ended 31 August 2016 is expected to increase by between 37% and 41% (increase approximating GBP2.9m to GBP3.2m), off a 2015 base of GBP7.818m, resulting in an expected increase in basic Earnings per Share of between 35% and 39% (increase approximating GBP1.5 pence to GBP1.6 pence), off a 2015 base of GBP4.2 pence per share.



Headline earnings is expected to decrease by between 64% and 68% (decrease approximating GBP4.6m to GBP4.9m), off a 2015 base of GBP7.189m. The expected decrease is mainly due to the inclusion of realized gains on the sale of non-core listed shares and unrealised foreign exchange profits in the 2015 period. Consequently, headline Earnings per Share for the six months ending 31 August 2016 is expected to decrease by between 65% and 69% (decrease approximating GBP2.5 pence to GBP2.7 pence) off a 2015 base of GBP3.9 pence per share.



Core headline earnings (as defined by the company) which excludes once off and non-operating items, is expected to increase by between 80% and 85% (increase approximating GBP4.7m to GBP4.9m), off a 2015 base of GBP5.866m.

New measurement for subsequent trading statements

Net asset value per share is expected to increase by between 9% and 14% (increase approximating GBP7.6 pence to GBP11.7 pence), off a 2015 base of GBP82.9 pence per share.



The company wishes to adopt net asset value per share as the measure for trading statements going forward, as management believes this measure is more relevant to the nature of the company?s business. This trading statement does not comply with the new policy, but subsequent trading statements will comply.



It is anticipated that the financial results for the six months ended 31 August 2016 will be published on or about 16 November 2016.

Business Day reported that Tradehold made a big play for local property by acquiring the R6.2 billion South African portfolio of the Collins Property Group. The deal adds another dimension to Tradehold, which is focused mainly on UK real estate, but also holds African property development interests, specialised financial services in the UK and SA, as well as solar power solutions. This is the second deal that Tradehold has struck with Collins. In March 2015, Tradehold acquired Collins?s UK and African portfolios for GBP28.2 million. The deal means that the Collins group will now function as a wholly owned subsidiary of Tradehold.

Dividend

The board has decided not to declare an interim dividend.



Outlook

Should the markets in which it operates remain stable, the board expects Tradehold to continue growing in the second half. A number of substantial projects, especially in Africa, have been initiated in the period under review which bode well for the future. We already have a solid base from which to grow, especially in Namibia, where we have become a major property owner and developer. In the UK, Moorgarth is growing in stature as a real estate owner and asset manager by extending its base not only geographically but also in terms of the services it offers in a property context. Strengthening its presence in the Central London market was in our view an important step in achieving this.



Although not the primary focus of the business, we have much faith in the long-term viability of the two Reward businesses, while Mettle not only extends the range of financial services but through Mettle Solar opens up new avenues for growth. This general forecast has not been reviewed nor reported on by the group's auditors.

An exemption from DT is provided for in the ITA in respect of foreign dividends paid to a South African company and to a non-resident to the extent that it is paid in respect of listed shares, provided certain administrative procedures are complied with. The ITA further provides for an exemption from income tax in respect of foreign dividends received or accrued in respect of listed shares. Shareholders who are not exempt from the DT will therefore receive a net dividend of 15.22841 cents per ?A? Preference Share.



In determining the DT of 15% to withhold in terms of the Income Tax Act for those shareholders who are not exempt from the DT, no secondary tax on companies credits have been utilised.



Tradehold has 61 927 500 ?A? Preference Shares in issue. Tradehold's income tax reference number is 9725/126/71/9.



The salient dates for the ?A? Preference Share dividend will be as follows:

*Shares commence trading ?ex? dividend - Monday, 23 November 2015

*Record date - Friday, 27 November 2015

Revenue for the year increased to GBP20.7 million (2014: GBP12.6 million). Trading profit rose to GBP12 million (2014: GBP6.1 million), operating profit was higher at GBP11 million (2014: GBP7.9 million), while profit attributable to owners of the parent was higher at GBP7.8 million (2014: GBP6.4 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share fell to GBP3.3 pence per share (2014: GBP4.5 pence per share).



Dividend

On 29 May 2015, the board approved and declared a final gross dividend of 6 cents per ordinary share.



Outlook

The board expects the growth of the past financial year to continue in 2015/16. Much of what is now on the drawing board is intended for the longer term; some of it will, however, also come to fruition in the months ahead such as the acquisition of properties in Southern Africa and the UK to the value of some GBP22.7 million once the transaction with Collins Group is finalised.



The capital raised in the South African market at the end of the financial year is clear evidence of the Group's determination to grow its asset base in both the UK and Africa. In the UK the income stream generated by the new properties in London will start making a meaningful contribution to rental income while the renovations to our Market Place shopping complex, to be completed towards the end of the year, will enhance the desirability of the address for retailers in the Greater Manchester area.



Tradehold is confident that the broad-based economic revival in the UK will retain its momentum following the re-election of the Tory government in early May. We are also convinced that our financial services arm will continue to flourish as it extends its services and enlarges its client base.

Revenue for the interim period shot up to GBP10.1 million (2013: GBP5.8 million). Trading profit jumped to GBP6.3 million (2013: GBP2.9 million), operating profit rose to GBP5.3 million (2013: GBP4.2 million), while profit attributable to owners of the parent was higher at GBP4 million (2013: GBP3.7 million).

Dividend

The board has decided not to declare an interim dividend.



Outlook

Tradehold has embarked on a growth path, to be continued in the second half of the year. Should the transaction with the Collins Group be concluded, Tradehold will be in a position to start to capitalise on the potential of property development on the African continent. However, this will not in any way detract from Tradehold's focus on the growth and development of their existing property portfolio in the UK where they are showing growth in their niche markets. Tradehold is confident that they will be able to build further on the encouraging results achieved in the first half of the year.



Tradehold also remain convinced of the potential of the two Reward businesses, while the acquisition of Mettle not only extends the range of financial services they offer but also gives us access to a pool of management skills and entrepreneurial flair.

Dividend

On 27 May 2014, the board approved and declared a final gross dividend of ZAR5.5 cents per ordinary share.



Outlook

With the turnaround in the British economy and the growing confidence in both the business community and among ordinary consumers, the board believes Tradehold and its subsidiaries are well-placed to benefit from the improving market sentiment. Moorgarth's new acquisition strategy and the proven asset- management capabilities of its senior team indicate a potentially strong performance by Tradehold's largest investment in the new financial year.



The board is equally convinced of the growth potential of Reward's two LLPs. The activities of these two businesses complement each other well, with Reward Commercial Finance providing the needed consistent cash flow. With the appointment of several key executives to bolster Reward's expansion plans in the new financial year we expect the business to further build on its excellent performance in the 2014 reporting period.



The board also believes the acquisition of Mettle will further enrich the fabric of Tradehold through the entrepreneurial flair of its management and the development potential it offers.

Net attributable profit also more than quadrupled to GBP3.7 million (GBP0.8 million). In addition, headline earnings per share soared to GBP2.6pps (GBP0.2pps).



Outlook

Moorgarth has weathered the past few years extremely well. It continues to upgrade the quality of its portfolio and manages to restrict vacant space in its properties to manageable levels. It is well positioned with adequate access to capital, to benefit from the opportunities coming to market with the gradual resurgence of the British economy. Tradehold believes it has the potential to improve on the results achieved in the first six months, during the second half of the year.



Tradehold remains convinced of the very considerable potential of Reward which, in an environment of restricted lending by the banks, is creating a niche for itself to occupy successfully in a risk - averse debt funding market that is likely to continue for a number of years.

Dividend

On 28 May 2013, the board approved and declared a final gross dividend of ZAR5 cents per ordinary share. The payment will reduce the company's share premium. The dividend will be paid in cash.



Outlook

Moorgarth has a strong, experienced management team whose members have demonstrated their ability to survive and grow in the present tough economic environment. Moorgarth's decision to focus on regionally dominant shopping centres with tangible opportunities for enhancement offers, in our view, a solid base for future growth. In the same way we believe Reward has enormous potential in the present market. The media in the UK reports almost daily on the reluctance of the mainstream banks when it comes to lending and how alternative funding sources are flourishing as a result. At the same time we believe that its potential is not just determined by the present economic climate but that that it will continue to flourish, and perhaps even more so, when the economy starts growing again.

Although the present adverse conditions in the British economy are expected to continue, the board is nevertheless positive in its outlook for the next six months. Moorgarth will continue in its efforts to enhance the quality of its portfolio as well as its profitability. Given its results to date it is expected that Reward will make a meaningful contribution to group profit this year. The board therefore expects the positive trends in the business to continue for the remainder of the year. This general forecast has not been reviewed nor reported on by the company's auditors.

Revenue for the year ended 29 February 2012 increased to GBP6.6 million (2011: GBP5.9 million).

Furthermore, headline loss per share narrowed to GBP2.1pps (2011: loss of GBP9.7pps).



Dividend

In the light of the group's results for the year the board does not recommend paying a dividend to shareholders.



Dividend

With its access to considerable cash resources and no external debt, Moorgarth is well placed to benefit from opportunities that arise in a highly depressed real estate market, whether it is the acquisition of new properties with strong up-side potential or the upgrading of existing ones to attract high-level tenants. Indeed, the group is considering a number of real estate investments. Moorgarth has the financial capability to acquire assets in the current market that should result in positive growth in future years. Reward is a business with considerable potential but it is still at an early stage of development and it will be some time before it will make a meaningful contribution to group profits. However, it is offering a product that is currently in very high demand and consequently it remains in a position where it can be very selective on investments and tailor its pricing structure accordingly.

Outlook

According to Finweek, Tradehold's investment focus has now shifted from its retail investments (such as Instore) to Moorgarth, a UK-based property company specialising mainly in retail real estate. Tradehold owns 85% of Moorgarth. However Moorgarth and therefore Tradehold does not have much of a chance of buying some cheap UK property unless it can raise more capital. One possibility, is for Tradehold to obtain funds by offloading its Instore shareholding.

(C)
Revenue increased to GBP4.8 million (GBP3.4 million). An operating profit of GBP3.8 million (loss of GBP15.5 million). A net attributable profit of GBP2.4 million (loss of GBP19.5 million) was recorded. In addition, headline earnings per share grew to GBP0.4pps, from a loss of GBP3.1pps previously.



Outlook

The free fall in property values that characterised the two previous financial years has been halted after reaching historic lows and the market seems to find itself at the start of an upward curve. This is not expected to gain much momentum initially with banks and other financial institutions remaining careful in making development funding available. The year ahead is therefore expected to be as challenging as 2010 without any significant increase in the current level of activity.

In terms of Circular 8/2007 headline earnings as issued by SAICA items of this nature should be included in headline earnings.

Shareholders are further referred to the updated trading statement released on SENS on 8 May 2009 which informed shareholders of the exclusion of fair value adjustments during the calculation of headline loss for the reviewed results. The recalculation of headline loss resulted in an increase in the loss per share, from 0.8 pence per share as reported in the reviewed results, to 2.8 pence per share. This adjustment had no impact on the income statement. The annual financial statements of Tradehold for the 12 months ended 28 February 2009 will be posted to shareholders on 29 May 2009.



The annual general meeting of shareholders will be held at the registered office of Tradehold, 36 Stellenberg Road, Parow Industria on Friday, 7 August 2009 at 09:30 to transact the business as stated in the notice of the annual general meeting forming part of the annual financial statements.

The reviewed results for the year ended 28 February 2009 were released on 29 April 2009, reflecting the aforementioned figures. The company has subsequently become aware that in the calculation of the headline loss for the year ended 28 February 2009 as disclosed in the reviewed results, fair value adjustments relating to two financial assets, in the amount of GBP7.2 million, have erroneously been excluded. In terms of the SAICA circular 8/2007 Headline Earnings, fair value adjustments of this nature should be included in headline earnings. The headline loss per share in respect of the year ended 28 February 2009 to be disclosed in the annual financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2009 is therefore expected to amount to 2.8 pence. No adjustment to the basic loss per share is required.

Tradehold has reported a substantially reduced profit for the year to 28 February 2006 compared to the previous year. This was due to poor trading results reported by Instore plc, previously Brown - Jackson plc, the listed British retail business in which Tradehold owns a controlling interest of 55.2%. Its results were further negatively impacted by a number of exceptional losses including substantial provisions. By contrast, Tradeholds property interests, consisting of a much-improved portfolio of commercial and retail buildings, managed to increase its profit contribution substantially. Group revenue was R3 083 million (R3 175 million). Profit before exceptional items amounted to R83.6 million (R174 million). Profit after tax decreased to R20.4 million (R141.8 million). Ordinary shareholders profit amounted to R34.2 million (R98.9 million). Headline earnings per share were 8.2c (12.8c).



Dividend

No dividend was recommend in respect of the financial year to 28 February 2006.



Outlook

Despite the disappointing performance of Instore and the challenges presented by the tight trading conditions presently characterising British retailing, the board remains confident of the long-term success of the group. It is believed that, despite recent setbacks, Instore will prove to be a formidable contender in the UK discount market, while the groups property interests are expected to contribute increasingly to group profits.

(Official Notice)
Tradehold, on 14 January 2006, issued a trading statement on the performance of its subsidiary, Instore plc. It noted that since reporting relatively strong sales through the Christmas and New Year trading period, Instore plc saw a significant shortfall in sales against internal expectations in the 4 weeks to 11 February 2006. As a result, full year profits for the twelve-month period to 25 February 2006 would be substantially below current market expectations. Total like for like (LFL) sales for the 6 weeks ending 15 January 2006 were up 3.8% with instore up 5.4% LFL and Poundstretcher up 2.0% LFL. In subsequent weeks, however, like for likes were broadly level, but significantly below internal expectations. Margins for the period were slightly behind expectations though they continue to be 1.0% ahead of last year. Operating costs, in particular the new distribution centre, continued to run ahead of forecast. Despite the poor performance, the group noted that it expected to close the year with a positive cash position. The board expects profits before tax and exceptional items for the year to be significantly below last year's IAS-adjusted profit number of GBP6.8m.
18 Jan 2006 12:28:33
(Official Notice)
The group's total LFL sales for the 20 weeks ending 15 January 2006 (the half year to date) rose 0.9% with instore up 1.6% and Poundstretcher increasing 0.1%. Margins were ahead of last year. The group achieved robust sales on Christmas and seasonal ranges and from Homewares. Improved logistics contributed to a higher than normal sell through on seasonal stocks ending the period with closing stocks down approximately 10% on the previous year's levels. Profits before tax and exceptional items are expected to be below the current market consensus although current trends indicate that the group should still be ahead of last year's IAS-adjusted profit number of GBP6.8 million.

Revenue decreased by 4.78% to R1.4 billion (R1.5 billion) while the headline earnings dropped a further 37.14% to a loss of 4.8cps (3.5cps loss).Income attributable to ordinary shareholder came down to a R19.8 million loss (R2.6 million profit). No dividends were declared.



Outlook

The results achieved in the first six months largely reflect the highly cyclical nature of British retailing. As in the past, the outcome for the year will depend largely on Instore's November/December trading performance. However, the board is confident that the substantial investment in improved distribution facilities will stand the group in good stead in the run-up to the peak Christmas trading period.
