(Official Notice)
Telkom is currently finalising its annual results for the twelve months ended 31 March 2017, which will be released on the Stock Exchange News Service (?SENS?) of the JSE on 5 June 2017.



The prior year?s reported earnings were impacted by voluntary severance packages (VSPs) and voluntarily early retirement packages (VERPs) of R2 193 million with a related tax benefit of R 517 million while the current year impact is significantly lower at R66 million with a related tax benefit of R13 million.



As a result, the reported headline earnings per share (HEPS) is expected to increase between 110% and 130% when compared to the prior year. The reported basic earnings per share (BEPS) is expected to increase between 60% and 80%.



Excluding the impact of VSPs and VERPs and the related tax benefit, HEPS is expected to increase between 0% and 20% and BEPS is expected to be between 10% lower and 10% higher than the prior year.



The above earnings include the performance of BCX, which has been incorporated for twelve months compared to seven months in the prior year.



The above information has not been reviewed nor reported on by Telkom?s independent external auditors. The group's annual results for the twelve months ended 31 March 2017 will be released on SENS on 5 June 2017 with a presentation in Johannesburg on the same day. The presentation will be available for all

stakeholders on the group's website, www.telkom.co.za/ir .

10-Apr-2017
(Official Notice)
Due to the recent rating action taken by S-P Global Ratings (?S-P? or ?the agency?) on South Africa?s long-term foreign currency rating from ?BBB-? to ?BB+? and in accordance with paragraph 4.26 of the JSE Debt Listings Requirements, noteholders are hereby advised of the Company?s rating which has been affirmed at ?BBB-?. Furthermore, the agency has changed its rating outlook to negative from stable on the company.



S-P has further advised that the rating review reflects its view of potentially weakening economic conditions as well as political and institutional uncertainty in the country in the next year, which could in turn affect Telkom?s creditworthiness. The agency however notes Telkom?s market leadership position as the incumbent telecom provider in the fixed-line voice market in the country as well as its growth prospects in its mobile, broadband and ICT solutions business which offsets the declining trend in fixed- line voice revenues.



Telkom?s global scale rating is now one notch above the country?s credit rating of BB+, negative. Telkom?s conservative capital structure combined with an expectation for single-digit net revenue growth and an average EBITDA margin of about 24% is what S-P cited as the primary reasons for maintaining our current rating position.



This is a positive acknowledgement to the turnaround strategy that the company embarked upon almost four years ago and the company will continue to actively manage its costs, cash and use of capital in the most efficient manner possible in the current difficult economic environment.



The negative outlook of Telkom by S-P reflects the possibility of a downgrade over the next year if the sovereign rating falls further and thereby impacting Telkom. However, having conducted a stress test to assess the company?s resilience under a hypothetical sovereign default scenario which includes stress on earnings and a devaluation of the South African rand, the agency limits the differential to one notch.



The company?s rating outlook could, in future be revised to stable if similar action on South Africa?s rating was revised, or if a significant improvement in the company?s liquidity position and ability to withstand a sovereign default with a substantially greater cushion occurs.

According to Business Report, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has relieved Telkom from complying with the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) with immediate effect.

Investing in high speed broadband, content and IP services, IT and value added services is a key part of its strategy to transform and exploit the potential of its business going forward. These, Telkom believes, will serve towards strengthening its core business.



A relentless focus on customer service will also always be part of its strategy, as will implementing the right processes and systems to enable and empower its employees to contribute towards improved customer centricity.

(Official Notice)
Telkom released a quarterly trading and operational update for the third quarter ended 31 December 2015.



Key features

- Fibre to the curb (FTTC): 1 250 000 homes passed with fibre;

- Fibre to the home (FTTH): 56 000 homes passed;

- LTE sites grew 9% to approximately 1400 sites;

- ADSL subscribers increased 3% to 1 018 107;

- Fixed data revenue excluding leased line revenue increased 5%;

- Active mobile subscribers grew 22% to 2 565 793, with a blended ARPU of R90.26;

- Postpaid subscribers grew 45% while prepaid subscribers increased by 15%;

- BCX integration on track.



Financial overview

The economic and operating environment has deteriorated driven by lower commodity prices and a weakening Rand. The outlook remains challenging on the back of lower growth expectations, higher interest rates and rising inflation. Against this backdrop, we prioritised our capital expenditure programme to focus on the growth areas of fibre and LTE. We have extended our debt maturity profile by raising a R1 billion term loan. We remain conservatively geared with a net debt to EBITDA ratio of approximately 0.3 times.



We have made progress in migrating from our legacy to the next generation network and have subsequently seen a slower decline of leased line revenues with growth in data connectivity products and services. Our mobile business continued to achieve good growth with services revenue up 37% and data revenue up 56% year on year. Our initial expectation that the mobile business would break even by March 2016, has been tempered by the operating environment and cost pressures .We are however confident that we will maintain the current positive revenue growth witnessed in this part of our business. Excluding BCX, our operating expenses remained flat as we benefited from our multiyear transformation initiatives. We also made progress on the sale of non-core assets during the quarter. The results exclude voluntary early retirement and severance packages and includes operating results of our newly acquired subsidiary, Business Connexion (BCX).



Outlook

Telkom expect continued weakness in the economy and anticipate that their customers will migrate to cheaper packages or delay spending on new infrastructure. Telkom will partner with their customers to contain costs as well take up any opportunities presented by the current environment to grow their business.

Business Day reported that Telkom has partnered with ShowMax to enter the video on demand (VOD) market.

19-Nov-2015
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the cautionary announcement dated 09 November 2015 in which Telkom advised shareholders that it is in discussions regarding a potential transaction to acquire all of the shares of Cell C (Pty) Ltd (?Cell C?). Shareholders are now advised that Telkom and Oger Telecoms have mutually agreed to terminate these discussions. Accordingly, shareholders are advised that caution is no longer required to be exercised when dealing in Telkom?s securities.
17-Nov-2015
(Media Comment)
According to Business Day, news that Telkom's mobile division is expected to break even by the end of its financial year sent its share price up 6.9% at the close of the previous day. Telkom is in discussions to acquire Cell C to boost its mobile business. The fixed line operator is conducting due diligence on SA' third mobile operator and hopes to complete it early next year.
16-Nov-2015
(C)
Total revenue from continuing operations improved to R17.2 billion (R16.3 billion). Net operating revenue rose to R13.5 billion (R12.3 billion). Operating profit lowered to R902 million (R1.6 billion). Profit attributable to owners also decreased to R564 million (R1.0 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share tumbled to 69.9cps (200.6cps).



Outlook

The challenges of intense competition, the soft economy and the fixed and inefficient nature of its operating cost base will remain with the company for H2 2016. As a result, the ongoing transformation of its business from both a revenue and cost perspective remains its key focus.



The difficult economic environment does not deter Telkom from looking at innovative ways to bring more value-added services to its customers. In this regard, the company has already partnered with Old Mutual to offer our pre-paid customers loyalty funeral cover valued at R10 000 at no additional cost to the consumer. Telkom will continue to seek ways to remain true to its commitment to not only give it customer value, but also to ensure that its customer experience remains a priority for all of us at Telkom.



The non-approval of its RAN sharing agreement with MTN by the competition authorities was a disappointment. The company is very pleased with the improved performance of its mobile business. As previously indicated Telkom will continue to consider organic and inorganic initiatives to enhance and further improve the performance to its mobile business. As always with all its investments the company will take a disciplined approach.



To this end, Telkom has announced that it is considering a potential transaction to acquire all of the shares of Cell C (Pty) Ltd. The company is currently performing due diligence on Cell C, and will update shareholders as the process progresses. Telkom is confident that its mobile business will achieve breakeven on EBITDA by year end.



Telkom also expects its acquisition of BCX to be a key enabler of future revenue growth that will provide us with additional revenue opportunities.
09-Nov-2015
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the cautionary announcement released on SENS on 28 September 2015, and are advised that Telkom is in discussions regarding a potential transaction to acquire all of the shares of Cell C (Pty) Ltd. (?Cell C?). Such transaction, if successfully concluded, may have a material effect on the price of Telkom?s securities.



Telkom is currently performing due diligence on Cell C.



Accordingly, shareholders are advised to continue exercising caution when dealing in Telkom securities until a further announcement is made in this regard.



Shareholders should also specifically exercise caution when reacting to information on this matter which has not been released by Telkom.
03-Nov-2015
(Official Notice)
The interim results for the period ended 30 September 2015 to be reported on include an item that do not form part of the results from normal business operations and as such have been excluded to present a ?normalised? view of underlying business performance.



Accordingly, shareholders are advised that reported and normalised earnings for the period ended 30 September 2015 are expected to differ from the prior corresponding period as indicated below:

30 September 2014 as previously reported (cents per share) and 30 September 2015 Expectation

Basic earnings per share

*Reported -- 217.4; 45%-65% lower; 98cps - 141cps lower

*Normalised -- 263.2; 10%-30% higher; 26cps - 79cps higher



Headline earnings per share

*Reported -- 215.8; 65%-85% lower; 140cps - 183cps lower

*Normalised -- 261.7; 5% lower -15% higher; 13cps lower - 39cps higher



The results for the six months period ended 30 September 2015 to be reported on include the following significant item that are not part of the results from normal business operations:

* Provision for voluntary severance and retirement packages of approximately R1 523 million (September 2014: R325 million) affecting 3 108 (September 2014: 406) employees with a related tax benefit of approximately R446 million (September 2014: R91 million) in the current period.



The increase in normalised basic earnings for the six months ended 30 September 2015 is mainly as a result of:

* Lower employee expenses due to lower headcount emanating from the voluntary severance and retirement packages in the prior financial year; and

* Higher profit on sale of properties.



This was partly offset by:

* Higher accelerated depreciation as we align its asset base to technology evolution and initiatives driving our strategic intent.



The primary reason for the higher increase in normalised basic earnings per share (10% - 30% higher) when compared to normalised headline earnings per share (5% lower - 15% higher) is the higher gain on sale of assets in the current period, which are excluded from the calculation of headline earnings per share.



Telkom will release its results for the six months ended 30 September 2015 on or about Monday, 16 November 2015.

According to Business Day, Telkom collaborated with Old Mutual to offer a loyalty programme extending funeral cover to its prepaid customers. Telkom CEO Sipho Maseko said that diversification into value-added services like financial and mobile payment, as well as content, was an "inevitable trend? for traditional telecoms companies. Old Mutual SA CEO Dave Macready said allowing South Africans easy access to insurance products through their mobile devices helps reduce costs and increases financial inclusion.

Business Day reported that Telkom's subsidiary, Openserve was launched to ease the entry of new internet service providers, especially black-owned companies.

Reorganising Telkom's wholesale division as an independent company would enhance its customer focus and create clearer lines of accountability.

The reason for the proposed amendments is that, after the posting of the notice of AGM, Telkom received a number of inputs from shareholders regarding the relevant resolution. Whereas shareholders appreciate that it is common for financial assistance to be provided by companies to directors and other employees to facilitate their participation in employee incentive schemes (such as the Employee FSP), there appears to be some contention with financial assistance provided to directors to enable them to purchase shares to meet share ownership requirements, particularly where such financial assistance takes the form of interest free loans.

Shareholders of Telkom are referred to the trading statement released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE on 10 October 2014 whereby Shareholders were advised that the results to be reported on for the six months ended 30 September 2014 would be at least 20% lower than those of the prior corresponding period. The results to be reported on include the following items that are not part of the results from normal business operations:

* Provision for retrenchment and voluntary severance and retirement packages of approximately R234 million after tax in the current period; and

* The net curtailment gain recognised on the post retirement medical aid liability of R2 173 million in the prior period.



Reported and normalised earnings for the six months ended 30 September 2014 are expected to differ from the prior corresponding period as indicated below:

30 September 2013 Reported - 30 September 2014 Expectation

Basic earnings per share

* Reported: 566.2 - 55%-65% lower, 311cps - 368cps lower

* Normalised: 140.6 - 80%-90% higher, 112cps - 127cps higher



Headline earnings per share

* Reported: 649.8 - 60%-70% lower, 390cps - 455cps lower

* Normalised: 224.2 - 10%-20% higher, 22cps - 45cps higher



The increase in normalised basic earnings for the six months ended 30 September 2014 are mainly as a result of:

* Lower payments to mobile operators resulting from the reduction in termination rates;

* lower asset impairments and write offs; and

* a decrease in expenses relating to the post-retirement medical aid liability due to the curtailment and settlement of part of the liability in the prior period.



This was partially offset by:

* lower foreign exchange gains as a result of the implementation of hedge accounting from 1 October 2013, which results in certain foreign exchange gains and losses not being recognised in earnings in the current period.; and

* higher taxation.



The main reason for the higher increase in normalised basic earnings per share (80% - 90% higher) when compared to the increase in normalised headline earnings per share (10% - 20% higher) is the asset impairments and write offs in the prior period which are excluded from the calculation of headline earnings per share. Telkom will release its results for the six months ended 30 September 2014 on 17 November 2014.

Shareholders are advised that Headline Earnings per Share ("HEPS") and Basic Earnings per Share ("BEPS") for the six months ended 30 September 2014 ("2015 interim reporting period") are expected to be at least 20% lower than those of the prior corresponding period.



The expected decrease in the results for the 2015 interim reporting period is due to the net curtailment gain of R2.2 billion recognised on the post retirement medical aid liability in the prior corresponding period.



Excluding the R2.2 billion gain in the six months ended 30 September 2013, BEPS for the 2015 interim reporting period would have been at least 20% higher than the prior corresponding period. The increase is mainly attributable to lower payments to other operators resulting from the decrease in mobile termination rates and lower asset write offs.



An updated detailed trading statement confirming a more specific range for HEPS and BEPS will be released once the Group has reasonable certainty of the result to be reported on.



The Group's interim results will be published on or about 17 November 2014.

Total revenue increased to R33.1 billion (R32.9 billion). An operating profit of R4.6 billion (loss of R11.1 million). The group also swung back into profit a with a net attributable profit of R3.8 billion, compared to a loss of R11.8 billion previously. In addition, headline earnings per share soared to 861cps (86.2cps).



Outlook

Based on guidance provided in November 2013, the group plans to reinstate the dividend in the 2015 financial year, subject to the financial performance of the group, the operating environment, growth opportunities and debt and cash flow levels. The board has decided not to declare a dividend in respect of the financial year ended 31 March 2014.



Going forward, Telkom expects to see continued pressure on fixed-line voice revenues, intensified by strong competition, a challenging macro-economic environment and effects of regulatory interventions. Telkom's objective to further stabilise and grow revenue is dependent on effectively positioning resources to drive value and achieving efficiencies across our operating cost base to improve EBITDA margins. This will require Telkom to focus capital expenditure on areas that generate satisfactory returns for our shareholders, and to avoid unprofitable operations.



Telkom aims to successfully conclude the proposed MTN South Africa and Business Connexion transactions within the current financial year, enabling us to rapidly fill gaps in the group's service and product offering, which we believe will improve Telkom's competitiveness, profitability and ability to provide fully converged solutions to our customers.

Basic earnings per share from continuing operations for the 2014 financial year are expected to be between 2,972 and 3,428 cents higher than the restated BEPS for the 2013 financial year. Headline earnings per share from continuing operations for the 2014 financial year are expected to be between 772 to 789 cents higher than the restated HEPS for the 2013 financial year.



The main drivers of the increase in earnings included in the 2014 financial year are:

* The net curtailment gain recognised on the post retirement medical aid liability of R2 169 million and the associated tax benefit of R246 million;

* The net positive impact of the decrease in mobile termination rates;

* Lower selling, general and administrative expenditure as a result of cost saving initiatives implemented; and

* Lower depreciation as a result of the R12 billion impairment in the previous year.



The following items included in the 2013 financial year also contributed to the increase:

* The R 12 billion non-cash impairment of assets;

* The provision for the Competition Commission fines of R 592 million; and

* The R 434 million relating to the cost of voluntary severance and early retirement packages;



Telkom will release its results for the year ended 31 March 2014 on or about 13 June 2014.

CIPC has notified Telkom that it believes that the Company has contravened Sections 44 and 45 of the Companies Act No 71 of 2008 ("the Act") as the payment of the Loan was authorised prematurely and prior to the board of directors of Telkom passing the necessary precursory financial assistance resolutions.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS of the JSE on 24 of October 2013. This note is issued to shareholders in order to clarify certain misconceptions about and to dispel speculation on the reasons behind Mr Schindeh?tte suspension. The Board of directors of Telkom confirmed that there is no connection whatsoever between the suspension of Mr Schindeh?tte and the Insider Trading enquiry instituted by the JSE in relation to Mr Schindeh?tte trade in Telkom shares on 30 September 2013.



The Board further confirms that the suspension has no connection with and will not have an impact on the financial performance of the Company. The suspension relates to allegations of personal misconduct levelled against Mr Schindeh?tte and which came to the Board's attention through a whistleblower. The Board initiated a process that included an investigation, using the services of an external law firm. Mr Schindeh?tte was given an opportunity to respond to the allegations. The findings of the external law firm as well as its recommendations were presented to the Board and these were carefully considered. The decision to suspend Mr Schindeh?tte was taken after obtaining legal advice.



Mr Schindeh?tte was served with a letter of suspension in which Telkom clearly sets out the allegations levelled against him and to which he is required to respond. The Board re-iterates its commitment to a fair process, conducted without favour or prejudice.

(Media Comment)
Business Day reported that Telkom has made new appeals to the government to allow a partner to acquire shares in the group that will assist the firm expanding into higher-margin broadband and mobile markets. This comes after the government decided to block South Korea's KT Corporation buying a 20% stake in Telkom. Telkom has also proposed that the government look at consolidation in the mobile sector and in the information and communication technology industry. Telkom chairman, Lazarus Zim, rejected the idea of a merger of Cell C with Telkom's 8ta mobile unit as speculation and would not comment further on the group's proposals. Zim added that the government's decision not to support the KT deal was "tragic" and a "big loss."
18-Oct-2012
(Media Comment)
According to a column in the Financial Mail by Duncan McLeod, recent speculation that Telkom and Cell C are in talks has "tongues wagging." Though suggestions of a merger between Telkom's 8ta and Cell C are unlikely, some sort of partnership may make sense, writes McLeod. However, a closer working relationship between Telkom/8ta and Cell C makes sense as Telkom has South Africa's largest fibre-optic backbone network by far, which is a valuable asset for base stations for fourth generation (4G) mobile broadband technology.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that basic earnings per share from continuing operations for the six months ending 30 September 2012 is expected to be at least 45% lower than the comparative period in the prior year. Headline earnings per share from continuing operations for the six months ending 30 September 2012 are expected to be at least 65% lower than the comparative period in the prior year. The lower earnings are mainly attributable to an increase in the provision for Competition Commission fines relating to transgressions of the company dating back approximately 10 years. The operational performance for the period up to 31 August 2012 has been further characterised by flat revenue and operating cost that escalated just below inflation. Telkom will provide an updated trading statement once there is reasonable certainty within a 20% range of the results when compared to the previous comparable period.

(Media Comment)
Telkom CEO, Nombulelo Moholi, was quoted in the Business Day saying that she is uncertain that the government will reverse its decision and back the proposed transaction with South Korea's KT Corporation ("KT Corp"). Cabinet's decision was seen as government's hesitance to lose control over the company and hold down access to telecommunications. KT Corp was set to purchase a 20% stake in Telkom for more than R3 billion. A statement by the Department of Communications gave no explanation for cabinet's turndown of KT Corp's proposal.

(Official Notice)
It should be noted that Telkom's results for the year ended 31 March 2011 will be restated to reflect the entire investment in the Multi-Links business as a discontinued operation. The restated basic earnings per share from continuing operations for the year ended 31 March 2011 is 481.2 cents per share and the restated headline earnings per share from continuing operations is 484.8 cents per share. Basic earnings per share from continuing operations for the year ending 31 March 2012 are expected to be at least 90% lower than the prior year. The decrease is mainly attributable to the following once off items that will be included:

*the recognition of a net loss of R950 million on the disposal of the Multi-Links foreign operation, mainly due to the cumulative amount of exchange differences previously recognised in equity, now recognised in profit and loss; and

*the impairment of iWayAfrica of approximately R550 million.



Other operational items contributing to the decrease include:

*the EBITDA loss incurred by the mobile business of approximately R2.2 billion;

*higher depreciation of approximately R670 million as a result of the review of the useful lives of existing network equipment as the company invests to transform to a commercially led next generation network.



These items will be partially offset by lower employee expenditure as R739 million was spent on voluntary employee severance packages in the prior year. Headline earnings per share from continuing operations for the year ending 31 March 2012 are expected to be at least 25% lower than the prior year. The net loss on disposal of Multi-Links and iWayAfrica impairment do not impact headline earnings. Telkom anticipates releasing its results for the year ending 31 March 2012 on or about 11 June 2012.

Outlook

Globally, telecoms operators are coming under intense pressure as growth in fixed and mobile voice revenues slows considerably. The decline of fixed-line voice is a common theme across all markets. In comparison, a burgeoning appetite for data has boosted growth in broadband services. Broadband and new data intense services are challenging to monetise particularly in low density geographies like South Africa. Telco operators are also facing increasing competitive pressure from non telecom players like Internet and software players (e.g., Google, Skype, retailers, media players, handset manufacturers and infrastructure providers e.g., Huawei). The South African market mirrors these global trends. The changing domestic regulatory environment and increasing competition are forcing Telkom to re-assess its product and service offering. Notably, the interconnect glide path will drive a further decline in fixed revenues, while the advent of Local Loop Unbundling has potential to put additional revenues at risk. In addition, Telkom faces a series of internal challenges. Our labour productivity has room to improve, while we deal with an ageing workforce. Telkom has not fully achieved its previous strategic goals, so a focus on execution is required. Finally, and most critically from a financial perspective, capital availability is scarce and cash flow will be constrained over the next three years. In this context, The group understands that it must make a significant step change in its strategy and approach to execution, not simply to defend its market share, but to grow its business and revenues. It is also clear that Telkom needs to be the best it can be in its current businesses while accessing growing revenue pools in selected adjacencies. Telkom is making two large investments (8ta and Network Transformation). The company's entrance into adjacencies will need to be measured, with a strong focus on risk mitigation.

Multi-Links delivered an operating loss of R269 million for the six months that will be reported as discontinued operations. The sale of Multi-Links was concluded on 3 October 2011. The sale of Multi-Links will result in a net loss of approximately R1 billion mainly due to the cumulative amount of exchange differences, previously recognised in non-distributable reserves, being realised. This loss will be recognised in the second half of the financial year. Telkom plans to release its results for the six months ended 30 September 2011 on Monday, 21 November 2011.

Prospects

Telkom launches its mobile brand under a new name called: 8ta On 18 October 2010 Telkom launched its new mobile brand called "8ta". The launch of Telkom's mobile brand under the new name 8ta is undoubtedly the most significant achievement to date, one that will allow Telkom to not only counter the threat posed by competition such as fixed-to-mobile substitution (and the resulting decline in fixed-line voice revenue) but also grow Telkom revenue by providing mobile services and products to consumer and business markets. Launching a retail brand is a massive undertaking that consists of a myriad of components - among other things the network and technology aspects, billing, products and services, distribution channels and the marketing drive to create awareness and generate sales.



Key brand attributes:

8ta is built on a number of core pillars. These give the brand a unique personality that tells the customer what 8ta stands for and why it is different to other brands in the mobile market:

*Value: "more bang for your buck", in other words more value for your money.

*Simplicity: products that are easy to understand, buy and use.

*Quality: network clarity and reliability, as well as the quality of the customer experience we offer.

*Innovation: deploying new mobile technologies and rapidly bringing new services to market.

*Authenticity: a South African brand for South Africa.

The increase in revenue generating capital expenditure was as a result of the mobile business case. The decrease in expenditure on network evolution was mainly due to the deployment of automated restoration functionality for the national transport network and the provisioning of bandwidth for the FIFA World Cup and for future network growth requirements that occurred mostly in the 2009 financial year. Telkom continues to focus on its operations support system investment with current emphasis on workforce management, provisioning and fulfilment, assurance and customer care, hardware technology upgrades on the enterprise networks and performance and service management and property optimisation.

Telkom is currently finalising its results for the year ended 31 March 2010, which are expected to be released on or about Monday, 21 June 2010. In South Africa, EBITDA continues to be impacted by increases in operating costs which outstrip revenue growth. n Nigeria, economic and competitive conditions were tough. In addition, inventory write downs and subsidies were higher and accordingly, Multi-Links Nigeria will report EBITDA losses higher than that of the previous year. The level of inventories and inventory commitments were abnormally high given the market circumstances of Nigeria and have been normalised.



Normalised headline earnings per share (`HEPS`) from continuing operations for the period, which excludes all the unusual items listed above, are expected to be between 5% higher and 15% lower than the normalised HEPS of 506.1 cents for the year ended 31 March 2009. Headline earnings per share, which includes the STC on the special dividend, the compensation expense and the fair value loss on Vodacom shares, are expected to be between 80% and 100% lower than the reported HEPS of 606.7 cents for the year ended 31 March 2009. Basic earnings per share (`BEPS`) including the profit on sale and gain on unbundling of Vodacom and all expenses related to the transaction are expected to be 1,505% to 1,525% higher than the BEPS of 457.4 cents reported for the year ended 31 March 2009. BEPS from continuing operations for the year are distorted by the accounting for the sale and unbundling of our 50% stake in Vodacom. Normalised BEPS from continuing operations, which excludes the profit on sale and gain on unbundling of Vodacom and all expenses related to the transaction, are expected to be between 5% higher and 15% lower than the normalised BEPS of 456.6 cents per share for the year ended 31 March 2009.



The main differences between basic earnings and headline earnings are the profit on the sale and gain on unbundling of our 50% share in Vodacom and the related capital gains tax and impairments and write-offs relating to property, plant and equipment and intangible assets. This trading statement has neither been reviewed nor reported on by the company's external auditors.

Business Day's "Bottom Line" column wrote that it will not be easy to enter the South African cellphone market as a fourth operator. It will be hugely expensive to start and will have to be a major improvement on existing networks in order to attract customers. Analysts have also questioned the strategy, but many also point out that Telkom needs a mobile service whether many people need it or not. This is because more and more customers could give up on fixed-line phones completely and have cellphones only.

According to Business Day, Telkom is preparing for the expected disposal of its 50% stake in Vodacom by planning to offer mobile services of its own. However, an unnamed source says that the planned sale of Vodacom will be scuppered by the changes taking place within the ANC. The government owns 38% of Telkom and has to grant permission for the deal. The source said that the government is unlikely to approve the deal as the state would have a difficult time justifying the sale of control in such a valuable asset to a foreign entity, such as Britain's Vodafone.

Telkom filed its 2008 tariff adjustment with the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA). The tariff filing - when approved by ICASA - sets out the key tariff changes that will come into effect on 1 August 2008. The formula used by ICASA to determine the extent of allowable price adjustments is "Consumer Price Index (CPI) minus 3.5% plus carry-over". At the relevant date (April 2008) the CPI was 11.1%. The regulatory formula would have allowed Telkom to file an overall increase of 17.2% in the basket of products and services. Telkom has instead decided to submit an overall increase of only 2.4%. Compared to the CPI used in the tariff filing, customers will experience a decrease in real terms of 8.7%.

Group operating revenue increased 9.0% to R56 285 million, while operating profit increased marginally by 0.1% to R14 482 million. The group EBITDA margin decreased to 36.6% as at 31 March 2008, compared to 38.3% at 31 March 2007, mainly due to higher fixed-line operating expenditure. Headline earnings per share decreased by 4.4% to 1 634.8 cents per share and basic earnings per share decreased by 6.9% to 1 565.0 cents per share. The reduced earnings is attributable to a decrease in operating profit due to an increase in operating expenses, and 60.3% increase in finance charges partially offset by a 9.0% increase in operating revenue. Cash generated from group operations increased by 3.6% to R21 256 million and facilitated group capital expenditure of R11 657 million, the acquisition of Multi-Links for R1 985 million and the repurchase of 12.1 million Telkom shares to the value of R1.6 billion.



Dividends

A final dividend of 660.00c per ordinary share was declared for the year ending 31 March 2008.



Prospects

Telkom?s strategy is designed to deliver sustainable, profitable growth going forward and is benchmarked against global best practice. The creation of shareholder value is the underlying driver of every decision made. The next couple of years will focus on transforming the business to deal with competition, concentrating on delivering innovative products and services to customers, expanding the group's network and bedding down growth drivers. It is expected that competition will continue to constrain revenue growth over the next three years. The group is targeting a compound average growth rate (CAGR) of revenue over the following three years in the 5% to 10% range as increased revenues from the data, broadband and converged business and the newly acquired subsidiaries are projected to mitigate the impacts of increased competition. The EBITDA margin relating to fixed-line and other segments is targeted to range between 32% and 36% over the next three years.

However, Telkom has still not presented a clear-cut strategy, and this resulted in its share price dropping by 10% in the course of one morning after the company laid out its plans and prospects to analysts. Nevertheless, investors were pleased with the group's expansion plans in Nigeria.

Group operating revenue increased 10.3% to R47.63 billion and operating profit increased 30.3% to R14.68 billion. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) margin increased to 43.2% (40.7%) mainly due to fixed-line data revenue growth, lower fixed-line employee costs as a result of a workforce reduction and a consistent mobile business EBITDA margin of 34.7% from strong customer growth. Headline earnings per share grew by 36.1% to 1 740.5cps and basic earnings per share grew 39.9% to 1 744.7cps. The strong growth in earnings was attributed to the increase in operating profit and a 27.3% reduction in finance charges. Cash generated from operations increased 5.9% to R19.7 billion and facilitated capital expenditure of R7.4 billion and the repurchase of 12 086 920 Telkom shares to the value of R1.5 billion.



Dividend

The group declared an ordinary annual dividend of 500cps and a special dividend of 400cps, payable on 14 July 2006.



Prospects

Fixed-line revenues in the financial year ending 31 March 2007 are expected to be impacted by tariffs, increased competition and the migration from dial-up to ADSL and the introduction of cost-based interconnection. The group's strategic initiatives to improve service levels are expected to result in above inflationary increases in operating expenses, the result being an expected fixed-line EBITDA margin between 37% and 40%. Fixed-line CAPEX is expected to be between 18% and 22% of revenue. Through improved efficiencies, the EBITDA margin is expected to remain constant. The group net debt to equity target remains the same at 50% to 70%.

Further to the Telkom and BCX announcements on 22 March 2006, Telkom announced its firm intention to make an offer to acquire the entire issued share capital of BCX, other than the BCX shares held as treasury shares and, if the trustees of the BCX share incentive trust so agree, the BCX shares held by the BCX share incentive trust. Telkom would acquire the outstanding options in BCX on the same terms and conditions as the offer. The offer would be implemented by way of a scheme of arrangement in terms of the Companies Act, to be proposed by Telkom between BCX and its shareholders, other than the excluded parties. BCX is supportive of the process.



Telkom will acquire the entire issued share capital of BCX for a cash consideration per offer share of R9.00. Telkom will furthermore agree to BCX paying a dividend of R0.25 per BCX share post the scheme meeting but prior to the implementation of the scheme. Telkom does not hold any shares in BCX at present and will not increase the offer consideration. Furthermore, BCX will continue paying dividends in the ordinary course of business in line with its current policy to maintain a 3x dividend cover ratio (excluding exceptional items) provided such dividends do not materially alter the net cash position of BCX as at 30 November 2005 unless such diminution in cash occurred due to an increase in assets in BCX. The offer consideration is at a premium to the current market price and a substantial premium to the long-term share price as set out in the financial effects attributable to BCX shareholders below. The offer consideration is also higher than the all-time high share price of R8.95 prior to the announcement of the potential offer on 22 March 2006. The Securities Regulation Panel has been given appropriate confirmation in terms of its requirements that Telkom has sufficient resources available to meet its obligations to satisfy full acceptance of the offer.

Telkom has made an approach to Business Connexion Group Ltd to acquire the entire issued share capital of BCX at R9.00 per share, subject to certain conditions. Telkom will furthermore agree to BCX paying a dividend of R0.25 per BCX share from existing cash resources. The price at which the offer was made will not be increased.



The acquisition of BCX will advance Telkom's ongoing data strategy. In particular, the group believes that the acquisition will enhance Telkom's ability to offer its customers end-to-end solutions across the ICT value chain. Telkom's strength has to date been on ICT services relevant to its core connectivity proposition, managed network and internet access and BCX offers a complementary service offering. The acquisition of BCX will enable the group to have a meaningful presence in the IT services market extending its value chain with BCX's proven capabilities in business application and support management, business process outsourcing and other IT related complementary lines of business. Telkom has approached five key shareholders of BCX holding in excess of 50% of the entire share capital of BCX, and has received a combination of written and in-principle support from these shareholders to proceed with the potential offer.

The rapid growth in the customer base is a result of high gross customer connections of 3.4 million, combined with low churn for the quarter. The group's international operations comprised 3.9 million customers, or 18.1% of the total customer base.



Vodacom South Africa increased its customer base by a healthy 11.6% since September 30, 2005 to 17.6 million customers in an increasingly competitive market.

Subsequent to the recent reports in the Business Day of 21 and 22 November 2005 about the alleged non-existence of the Telkom register of members, Telkom response to these allegations is as follows:

The Companies Act, 61 of 1973 prescribes that a register of members be kept but it is not peremptory that the register be kept in hard copy or bound book form. Provision is made for sub-registers to be kept. This provision has clearly been inserted to meet the demands of a listed company, (i.e. a hard copy and / or the other means provided for).



In practice, Telkom has adopted the following procedure:

Computershare, who acts as the transfer secretary on behalf of Telkom, maintains a register on behalf of Telkom, in electronic format, reflecting the particulars of the Class A and Class B shareholders, certificated and beneficial holders held in Computershare's CSDP as well as Telkom's shares dematerialised through STRATE and held in other CSDP's. The dematerialised shares are administered by STRATE. Once a month Telkom receives an electronic report from STRATE and from Computershare, which maintains the register of members.

Vodacom Group in which Telkom has a 50% holding today issued the following press release:



"The Vodacom Group board has decided not to proceed with its joint bid with Telkom for an equity stake in Nitel, Nigeria. As the Nigerian Government is not considering a separation of the fixed and mobile businesses of Nitel at this stage and as Vodacom's preference is to invest in a pure mobile player it has decided to withdraw from this process.

The Vodacom Group however remains open to an equity investment in Nitel's mobile business should the opportunity arise and will consider managing the mobile operation of Nitel in the absence of an equity investment if requested to do so by Telkom."



Telkom is committed to the Nitel bid and will continue to pursue the acquisition of 51% of Nitel. Discussions are continuing with suitable partners.

Telkom is likely to end one of its partnerships with Vodacom, feeling that its alliance with Vodacom might threaten its chances of securing a successful bid in the Nigerian fixed-line group Nitel. According to Business Report the Nigerian government shortlisted Telkom, Vodacom and MTN among others for the Nitel stake. Vodacom however is still in a court battle with Econet Wireless Group that would probably not be finalised before the winning bidder was announced. Analysts believe that Telkom might partner with somebody else in order to secure the deal.

Vodacom Group (Pty) Ltd (`Vodacom` or `Vodacom Group`), in which Telkom has a 50% holding, announced today announced a quarterly update for the three months ended June 30, 2005.



As at June 30, 2005, Vodacom Group recorded 17.2m customers on its networks operated in South Africa and other African countries, an 11.2% increase in the three months since March 31, 2005. The group`s international operations comprise 2.9m customers, or 17% of the total customer base. Vodacom South Africa increased its customer base by 11.3% since March 31, 2005 to 14.3m customers. Vodacom South Africa`s customer base increased to 2m contract customers and 12.3m prepaid customers, increases of 5.8% and 12.3% since March 31, 2005, respectively. The rapid growth in the South African customer base is a result of high gross customer connections, combined with low churn for the quarter caused by a clean up of the customer base in March 2005. South African ARPU declined by 8% to R150 per month for the three months to June 30, 2005. The ARPU was negatively impacted by the increasing proportion of prepaid customers in the total base, as well as lower usage per average customer.



Vodacom was the first operator to introduce a commercial 3G offering into the local market in December 2004. The take up by customers during this initial period of deployment continues to be encouraging, with the number of active 3G users on the network as at June 30, 2005 being 26 341 (March 31, 2005: 10 853). The 3G launch included a number of innovative products such as the Vodafone Mobile Connect Card, and, Vodacom currently has 10 516 users (March 31, 2005: 5 105).

Telkom has filed its September 2005 tariff adjustments with the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), in accordance with the Telecommunications Act, 103 of 1996, and the Price Control regulation. The Price Control regulation imposes a price cap formula on a basket of specified services, including installations; prepaid and post-paid line rental; local, long distance and international calls; fixed-to-mobile calls; public payphone calls; ISDN services; the Diginet product; ADSL products and services and the Megaline product.



Currently, the overall tariffs for all services in the basket may not be increased by more than 3.5% below inflation in South Africa, based on the consumer price index (CPI) and measured using revenue for the services in the basket at constant volumes for the prior year. In addition, the price of any individual product or service included in the basket may not be increased by more than 5% above inflation in South Africa in any year. Inflation is based on the year on year movement in CPI measured for April. CPI was 3.4% for April 2005. The Price Control regulation also makes provision for the carry over of allowable rate benefits that were not used in the prior filing, in terms of the general Price Control formula, to be claimable in the next filing. In the January 2005 annual tariff increases Telkom did not utilise the full allowable rate benefits. The amount carried over to the September 2005 tariff increases has a 0.2% impact on the allowable increase in tariffs. Based on CPI and the carry over allowance from the prior year, Telkom`s allowable tariff adjustment for the regulated basket of services is an increase in revenue of 0.1%. However, the significant price reductions in certain services will result in an overall price decrease of 3%, if approved by ICASA. The price adjustments for ADSL and international private leased circuits will be effective from August 1, 2005. All other price adjustments proposed will be effective September 1, 2005, if approved by ICASA.
