Headline earnings per share increased by 10% to 91.3cps ( 83cps). Operating profit grew by 34.8% to R52.5 million (R39 million). The 32.7% increase in turnover to R720.2 million (R542.6 million) was driven mainly by organic growth in the recycling and packaging divisions and the inclusion of the Cape-based plastic bag business for a full 12 month period. Profit after taxation rose to R25.6 million (R22 million).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 18cps has been declared.



Prospects

The Cape-based plastic bag factory is running well. The importation of retail bags has been completely eliminated and replaced by local production at the facility. The board is confident that this operation will continue to grow sustainably over the long term.



The specialised films division, operating in the pallet stabilisation film market, has installed additional plant and substantially increased production capacity. Its positioning in a robust market has ensured a positive outlook for future growth. High virgin raw material prices are benefiting the recycling division as plastic manufacturers seek to convert an increasing amount of product to recycled material. supply of post-consumer plastic waste, the primary raw material of this division, has improved.



Britepak, the group's printed folded carton division, has also improved efficiency and increased capacity through the installation of additional plant, enabling the division to take advantage of developments in the local pharmaceutical industry.



It is anticipated that the remaining divisions of the group will continue to post organic growth supported by an investment in plant in excess of R100 million over the past two years. While organic growth remains a key strategic objective of Transpaco, the group will also continue to pursue appropriate acquisitions.

(C)
Turnover increased by 41.8% to R353.4 million (R249.2 million) as a result of the acquisition and robust trading in the packaging division. Operating income increased by a less than expected 30.5% to R29.1 million (R22.3 million). Profit after taxation rose to R14.7 million (R13.8 million). The group achieved headline earnings per share of 52.6cps (52.3cps), which was below expectations.



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 10cps has been declared for the six months to 31 December 2007.



Prospects

Organic growth is continuing throughout the group. As the Cape-based factory is currently reaching satisfactory levels of production, the board expects the benefits of the acquisition to be substantially realised during the current six months ending 30 June 2008 and thereafter. The shortage of raw material supply, which constrained the recycling division, is being addressed. New PDI-owned buy-back centres are being established with Transpaco's assistance in areas where collection infrastructure is poor. This will increase the supply of raw material to the recycling division. A further benefit is Transpaco's participation in BEE Enterprise Development.



The benefit of additional machinery which has been commissioned at Britepak, the printed folded carton division, and at the group's pallet stabilisation film business Specialised Films, will be realised once the plants reach optimum capacity which is anticipated during the forthcoming twelve month period. Eskom's power shortages have affected the group. Satisfactory discussions have been held with relevant service providers to manage interruptions at production facilities. If these programmes are successfully implemented and in the absence of unforeseen circumstances and spiralling raw material prices, the board believes that earnings growth in real terms for the financial year ending 30 June 2008 will be achieved.

The strong rand and high oil prices continued to adversely effect on the local plastics manufacturing sector. Transpaco's margins experienced pressure from import replacement competition and the high costs of plastic raw materials resulting from the application of import parity pricing. The discontinuation of Rigid Plastics has been completed. The closure has released funds which would be redeployed into growth opportunities. Turnover increased to R186 million (R170 million) with gross profit remaining almost stagnant at R60.8 million (R60.1 million). Operating profit decreased to R13.8 million (R18.5 million) due to higher operating costs and a lower profit after taxation of R9.1 million (R13.5 million) was achieved. Headline earnings declined to 37.1cps (49.2cps).



Dividend

A dividend of 8cps was declared for the period.



Prospects

Transpaco is in the process of acquiring the plant and equipment of Recycling Plastic, the recycling subsidiary of Sasol Polymers subject to certain suspensive conditions. If the transaction is completed, the additional equipment will add capacity to existing recycling facilities which will benefit Transpaco in the future.

(Official Notice)
Due to high raw material prices resulting from the high oil prices; the import parity pricing policy of suppliers; and low cost import replacement in Transpaco's markets, the group's earnings and headline earnings per share for the half year ended 31 December 2005 are expected to be between 25 % to 30 % and 20% to 25 % lower respectively compared with the previous corresponding period. The large decline in earnings compared to headline earnings per share is a result of the discontinuation of two divisions which resulted in nonrecurring losses. All other divisions operated profitably. It is expected that the interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2005 will be released on or about 24 February 2006.

Headline earnings per share increased by 12% to 80.2c (71.9c). Turnover increased by 10% to R332 million ( R301 million), attributable mainly to the establishment of Specialised Films, the acquisition of Britepak and volume growth in the plastic bag business. The 22% increase in depreciation of R12.6million (R10.3 million) resulted from additional plant acquired in the flexible division, the establishment of Specialised Films and the acquisition of Britepak. Net interest paid increased by 9% to R3.1 million (R2.9 million) as a result of the establishment of Specialised Films and net interest-bearing debt in Britepak. Interest cover remains at a comfortable level of 9.2 times (10.3 times). Profit after taxation increased by 11% to R22.2 million (R20.0 million) due to the utilisation of government investment incentives. A dividend of 12cps was declared for the period.



Transpaco will continue to pursue organic growth and to identify strategic acquisitions. The benefit for a full year of the BEE transaction, the acquisition of Britepak and the establishment of Specialised Films will enhance the group`s performance.
