Update on Strategic review

During the Final Results presentation, the Company provided
a further update on its strategic review and the
implementation of the group’s new corporate strategy
(Strategic Review). The following key initiatives were
identified and have been previously reported on:

  - Fix and address underperforming businesses
  - Optimise returns from the existing portfolio
  - Look at high growth opportunities based on existing

The Company wishes to provide a further update based on the
continued implementation of some of the initiatives.

The group has significant capital allocated to leasing
assets. In order to further optimise capital allocation
into higher returning opportunities, various options are
currently under consideration in relation to the groups’
vehicle leasing assets. The group believes that by funding
these assets more effectively it will enhance its overall
return on capital while creating opportunities for the
businesses directly or indirectly involved in leasing
activities further capacity to pursue growth. The board has
not taken any decisions in this regard.
