Notes:
1.    Due to the disposal of the company’s 49% minority interest in DriveRisk Proprietary Limited (“DriveRisk”)
      during the current period and in accordance with IFRS 5 (Non-current Assets Held for sale and Discontinued
      Operations) the effects of the disposal of DriveRisk on the group’s results have been presented as a
      discontinued operation.

2.    Included in EPS for the current period are the profits realised from the sale of the company’s interest in
      DriveRisk and the sale and leaseback transaction in respect of the Umlaas Road properties in KwaZulu-Natal.

3.    Consistent with prior reporting we aim to present shareholders with the same information that management
      utilises to evaluate the performance of the group’s operations. Accordingly, we present Core HEPS, which
      is headline earnings (as calculated based on SAICA Circular 2/2015) adjusted for the amortisation charge of
      intangible assets recognised on business combinations and charges relating to share-based payments.

The estimated financial information contained in this announcement has not been audited, reviewed or reported
upon by the group's external auditors.

The group's interim results for the six month period ended 30 November 2017 are scheduled to be announced on or
about 8 February 2018.
