RESULTS COMMENTARY

TRADING PERFORMANCE

Spur Corporation’s performance for the six months to December 2017 reflects the difficult economic and trading conditions during the period in most major markets in which 
the group operates. Total franchised restaurant sales from continuing operations across the local and international operations declined by 2.6% to R3.7 billion.

Franchised restaurant sales in South Africa were 3.0% lower as ongoing political instability and higher living costs negatively impacted consumer sentiment and 
discretionary spending. This contributed to a sharp decline in restaurant and shopping centre foot traffic.

Having declined by 6.2% in the first quarter of the financial year, local restaurant sales showed a marked improvement in the second quarter with sales declining by only 0.2%.

This trend was particularly evident in the performance of the flagship Spur Steak Ranches chain which reported a 5.3% decline in second quarter sales compared to 14.0% in the 
first quarter. Total sales for the six months decreased by 9.3%. While restaurant turnovers in the first quarter were impacted in the aftermath of the social media fallout 
following a customer incident in a Spur outlet in March 2017, the stronger second quarter suggests a positive outlook for the Spur brand for the remainder of the financial year.

Management continues to take decisive action to ensure the profitability of its franchisees in the current trading environment. This includes a shift in the 
promotional strategy away from discounting to protect franchisee margins. While this has had the expected negative impact on restaurant turnovers in the short term, 
the move has buoyed franchisee profitability which is critical to the sustainability of the franchise model.

Pizza and Pasta, incorporating Panarottis and Casa Bella, grew sales by 6.6%. This is a pleasing performance in the highly competitive pizza market where several chains 
have launched aggressive discounting campaigns to attract customers.

RocoMamas continued its strong growth trajectory and increased sales by 37.5% as eight new restaurants were opened in South Africa. John Dory’s opened a net two new outlets 
and increased sales by 1.8%.

The Hussar Grill again showed the resilience of its higher income customer base as sales grew by 24.1%. Three new restaurants were opened as the chain expanded its 
presence nationally to 17.

The financial stress of Captain DoRegos’ lower income market contributed to sales declining by 12.2%.

International restaurant sales increased by 1.3% in rand terms and by 3.2% on a constant exchange rate basis. Sales in Mauritius (11 outlets) increased by 15.7%, 
Africa (39 outlets) declined by 0.9% while sales in Australasia (11 outlets) were 12.0% lower.

RESTAURANT EXPANSION

The group continued its measured expansion programme despite the tough trading conditions and opened a net 22 outlets across all brands in South Africa, bringing the local 
restaurant base to 550. A further six outlets were revamped and six relocated to better trading locations.

Five new international outlets were opened and five closed. The new outlets are in Nigeria (Spur and Panarottis), Mauritius (Spur Grill & Go), Kenya (RocoMamas) 
and Namibia (John Dory’s).

FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

The group ceased trading in the United Kingdom and Ireland by the end of the 2016 financial year. These operations were reported as a separate operating segment and 
are accordingly disclosed separately to continuing operations.

Revenue from continuing operations declined by 0.9% to R344.6 million. Revenue was impacted by reduced franchise fee income as a result of the lower restaurant sales 
and fee concessions being granted to assist numerous franchisees to ensure their businesses remained viable during the current economic downturn.

Franchise revenue in Spur Steak Ranches declined by 12.9% and increased in Pizza and Pasta by 1.6%, John Dory’s 3.9%, The Hussar Grill by 33.0%, RocoMamas by 45.0%, 
and Captain DoRegos by 2.8%.

Local retail revenue, representing the group’s interests in four The Hussar Grill restaurants and one RocoMamas outlet, increased by 14.6%.

The manufacturing and distribution division grew revenue by 3.0%, negatively impacted by the lower restaurant foot traffic and slower sales from the sauce factory. 
Margins continued to be under pressure from higher raw material input costs which have not all been passed on as management seeks to balance franchisee and franchisor 
margins to ensure the group’s brands remain competitive.

While the operating margin expanded in RocoMamas and the retail division, the margin in all the other brands as well as the manufacturing division contracted as expenses 
grew ahead of revenue.

Profit before income tax from continuing operations declined by 15.5% to R134.3 million. This includes  a profit on the disposal of the Braviz rib processing facility 
of R17.5 million (following an impairment loss of R44.2 million recognised in the second half of the 2017 financial year), a net charge of R3.4 million 
(2016: gain of R0.6 million) related to the long-term share-linked employee retention and incentive schemes, a fair value loss of R10.6 million (2016: R2.8 million) 
relating to the RocoMamas contingent consideration liability, and other one-off and exceptional items in the current and previous comparable periods.

Comparable profit before income tax from continuing operations, excluding exceptional and one-off items (including those listed above), declined by 18.6%.

Headline earnings declined by 10.5% to R96.6 million and headline earnings from continuing operations decreased by 11.8% to R96.6 million. Headline earnings on a 
comparable basis declined by 19.7%.

Diluted headline earnings per share from continuing operations was 11.7% lower at 100.87 cents. An interim dividend of 63 cents per share (2016: 71 cents) has been declared.

PROSPECTS

The group’s focus in the months ahead will be on food quality, value, competitive pricing and driving customer loyalty across all brands. The improving performance in 
the second quarter augurs well for a stronger result in the second half of the year, particularly for the Spur Steak Ranches chain which encountered major headwinds 
in the first half.

The water crisis in the Western Cape poses a risk in the months ahead and remedial strategies are being implemented to minimise the impact on trading.

The restaurant footprint in South Africa will be expanded with the opening of 21 restaurants across Spur Steak Ranches (3), Panarottis (1), RocoMamas (10), 
Captain DoRegos (5), The Hussar Grill (1) and Casa Bella (1) in the remainder of the financial year. Management continues to seek opportunities to acquire brands with 
good growth prospects.

The group aims to open at least 10 international restaurants to June 2018, with the focus mainly on Africa where new outlets will be opened in Namibia (three), Zambia, 
Zimbabwe and Swaziland. A further two outlets will be opening in Saudi Arabia, one in Mauritius and the first RocoMamas in Australia.

While the stabilising political environment in South Africa is expected to boost consumer confidence in the short term, the directors believe that any marked improvement 
in spending is only likely to follow an economic recovery in the medium to longer term.

CASH DIVIDEND

Shareholders are advised that the board of directors of the company has, on Wednesday, 21 February 2018, resolved to declare an interim gross cash dividend for the

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1 Basis of preparation

  The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended 31 December 2017 have been prepared in accordance with the JSE Limited
  Listings Requirements for provisional reports and the requirements of the Companies Act (No. 71 of 2008), as amended. The Listings Requirements require provisional
  reports to be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards
  ("IFRS") and the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting
  Standards Council and to also, as a minimum, contain the information required by IAS 34 - Interim Financial Reporting. The accounting policies applied in the
  preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements are in terms of IFRS and are consistent with those applied in the preparation of the group's
  consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2017.

2 Discontinued operation (United Kingdom)

  By 30 June 2016, all operations in the UK and Ireland, representing a separate major line of business (and comprising a separate operating segment) of the group, had
  ceased trading. The results of the segment are reported separately to continuing operations.

  During the prior year, the group disposed of, or commenced with voluntary liquidation proceedings of, its remaining UK subsidiaries, with the exception of Spur
  Corporation UK Ltd, effectively disposing of all remaining liabilities and cash balances for no consideration. The board has obtained legal opinion that the
  likelihood of there being any recourse by creditors or the liquidator against the group to settle any creditors' claims arising from the liquidation, is remote. The
  impact of the above disposals is as follows:

                                                                                                                  Unaudited six months ended 31 December 2016

3 Investment in associate: Braviz Fine Foods

  In March 2014, the group acquired a 30% interest in Braviz Fine Foods (Pty) Ltd ("Braviz"), a start-up operation which established a rib processing plant in
  Johannesburg. The initial purchase consideration amounted to R0.4 million (comprising ordinary shares of R300 and initial transaction costs of R0.4 million). 
  The group simultaneously advanced a loan in the amount of R36.250 million to the entity. In addition, a further short-term bridging finance loan of R10.000 million 
  was advanced to the associate during the 2016 financial year. The bridging finance loan was repayable by 30 June 2017, but the counterparty failed to repay the loan.

  Following various breaches of the terms of the respective loan agreements referred to above by the associate, and taking cognisance of the associate's financial
  performance, which had been impacted by reduced demand following a decline in the local economy, increased competition and aggressive pricing, the board considered
  the full extent of the receivables, amounting to R44.192 million at 30 June 2017, to be impaired. An impairment loss of this amount was consequently recognised in
  profit before income tax for the prior year ended 30 June 2017. The group's share of equity-accounted profit after income tax of the associate amounted to R1.485
  million and R0.024 million for the prior six months to 31 December 2016 and prior year ended 30 June 2017 respectively. No equity-accounted profits or losses of the
  associate have been recognised subsequent to 30 June 2017 as a result of the impairment referred to above.

  With effect from 6 November 2017, the group concluded an agreement to sell its equity interest and loan claims with Braviz to the existing Braviz shareholders for the
  sum of R17.500 million. The sale consideration is payable in four equal monthly instalments from the end of November 2017 to the end of February 2018, such
  instalments being held in escrow by the group's attorneys pending payment of the final instalment. The terms of the sale agreement have been substantially complied
  with to date. Accordingly, a receivable in the amount of R17.500 million has been recognised at the reporting date and a profit of 17.500 million on the disposal of
  the loan claims has been recognised in profit before income tax for the period. The transaction results in an income tax credit of R3.257 million which is included in
  the income tax expense for the period.

  An analysis of the receivables as at the prior period reporting dates is detailed as follows:

4 Impairment of Captain DoRegos

  The Captain DoRegos brand is a value-oriented takeaway chain offering a combination of chicken, seafood and burgers to consumers, operating through 42 franchised
  outlets locally and two internationally. The cash-generating unit has experienced a sustained period of profits being below expectations, due to the slowdown in the
  South African economy in recent years and its impact on the brand's target market.

  Following an impairment test conducted at 30 June 2017, the directors determined that the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit (comprising predominantly the
  trademark and related intellectual property intangible assets with indefinite useful lives) was estimated to be negligible. The full carrying amount of the assets
  attributable to the cash-generating unit at 30 June 2017 were therefore impaired, resulting in a loss of R6.778 million (attributable to the intangible assets) being
  included in profit before income tax for the prior year to 30 June 2017. A corresponding deferred tax credit of R1.518 million was recognised in profit in the year to
  30 June 2017, resulting in a net loss included in profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of R5.260 million for that period.

  In addition, the group had previously advanced a loan to the Captain DoRegos Marketing Fund to finance the purchase of new signage at selected stores. In the
  interests of making available sufficient funds for marketing activities to ensure the sustainability of the brand, the group forgave the loan as at 30 June 2017.
  Consequently, a bad debt of R0.986 million was recognised in profit before income tax for the prior year ended 30 June 2017. Refer also note 10.

5 RocoMamas contingent consideration

  With effect from 1 March 2015, the group acquired a 51% interest in RocoMamas Franchise Co (Pty) Ltd ("RocoMamas"), an entity owning the trademarks and related
  intellectual property of the RocoMamas brand.

  The purchase consideration is determined as five times RocoMamas' profit before income tax of the third year following the date of acquisition, which ends on 
  28 February 2018. Following an initial payment of R2.0 million on the effective date, annual payments are due on the first, second and third anniversaries of the
  acquisition date, calculated as five times the profit before income tax of the year immediately preceding the anniversary date, less any aggregate payments already
  made. Payments of R20.369 million and R18.271 million were made on the first and second anniversaries of the acquisition date respectively.

  The total purchase consideration over the three-year period was estimated at R57.541 million at the reporting date (at 31 December 2016: R52.800 million; at 
  30 June 2017: R47.215 million). The increase in the estimated consideration at the reporting date relative to 30 June 2017 arose principally from restaurant turnovers 
  and related franchise income exceeding budget: the impact of a subdued economy and political instability on restaurant turnovers was less than previously anticipated.
  Furthermore, a greater number of new restaurants were opened in the period to December 2017 than was previously anticipated.

  The movement in the contingent consideration liability is detailed as follows:

  During the prior year, with effect from 1 April 2017, the group acquired a further 19% interest in RocoMamas, increasing the group's equity interest in the entity to 
  70%. The purchase consideration of R14.035 million was settled in cash on the effective date. The net assets of RocoMamas at 1 April 2017 included in the consolidated
  financial statements of the group amounted to R16.433 million, of which R8.052 million was attributable to non-controlling interests. The purchase consideration was
  debited directly to retained earnings in the prior year and the non-controlling interest's share in the net assets of the subsidiary of R3.122 million was similarly
  reallocated within equity to retained earnings in the prior year.

  The forfeitable shares granted resulted in 156 607 (six months ended 31 December 2017: 82 208; year ended 30 June 2017: 110 351) dilutive potential ordinary shares
  for the period. As the performance conditions of the share appreciation rights, as assessed at the reporting date, had not been met to result in any vesting of the
  rights, no adjustment has been made to the diluted weighted average number of shares in issue in respect of these contingently issuable shares for all periods
  reported.

7 Loan to Spur Steak Ranches Marketing Fund

  The Spur Steak Ranches Marketing Fund, which is managed by the group for and on behalf of the body of Spur Steak Ranches franchisees, is established in terms of the
  franchise agreements concluded between the group and franchisees, as more fully described in notes 2.1 and 39 on pages 95 and 148 respectively of the annual
  integrated report for the year ended 30 June 2017.

  The Marketing Fund's main source of income is the marketing contributions received from franchised restaurants which are determined as a percentage of the franchised
  restaurants' sales. As a consequence of the decline in franchised restaurant sales since March 2017, exacerbated by temporary reductions in the percentage marketing
  fee charged to certain restaurants in an effort to support the sustainability of these restaurants during the tough trading conditions, the fee income received by the
  Marketing Fund has reduced significantly. This has resulted in the Marketing Fund not being able to settle its financial obligations in the ordinary course of
  business.

  During the period, the board approved a loan facility to be made available to the Marketing Fund in the amount of R35 million. This was necessary in order to ensure
  the liquidity and solvency of the wholly owned subsidiary that manages the Marketing Fund. The facility bears interest at the prime rate of interest and is repayable
  in 60 equal monthly instalments commencing July 2018. As at the reporting date, the carrying amount of the loan was R29.557 million (comprising R29.000 million
  capital and R0.557 million in interest), and is included in loans receivable in the consolidated statement of financial position.

  The board, management of the Marketing Fund and franchisees are critically reassessing the priorities of the Marketing Fund to ensure that expenditure is curtailed in
  a responsible manner, such that the loan can be repaid with the least negative impact for the brand and franchisees. The board has undertaken to review the terms of
  the loan facility on a regular basis, and amend these as necessary, to ensure that no creditor is prejudiced.

9 Changes in local retail operations

  - RocoMamas Green Point (prior year) - During the prior year, with effect from 1 June 2017, a subsidiary, Opilor (Pty) Ltd (in which the group has a 68% equity
    interest) sold the business of RocoMamas Green Point to a newly established entity, Green Point Burger Joint (Pty) Ltd, two-thirds of which is owned by wholly owned
    subsidiary, Spur Group (Pty) Ltd, and the remaining third by 70%-owned subsidiary, RocoMamas Franchise Co (Pty) Ltd. This resulted in an effective increase in the
    group's ownership interest in the outlet from 68% to 90% in the prior year. The profit before income tax attributable to the non-controlling shareholder of Opilor
    (Pty) Ltd, arising from the transaction, of R0.695 million was allocated to non-controlling interests in the prior year, and the tax of R0.523 million arising from
    the transaction was charged directly to equity (retained earnings) in the prior year.

10 Subsequent events

   - Dividend – Subsequent to the reporting date, a dividend of 63 cents per ordinary share in issue, amounting to R68.343 million, was declared by the board on 
     21 February 2018 and is payable on 3 April 2018.

   - Disposal of Captain DoRegos – Subsequent to the reporting date, on 20 February 2018, the group concluded an agreement to dispose of the business of Captain DoRegos 
     with effect from 1 March 2018, for a consideration of R5 million. Of the total consideration, R1 million is payable on the effective date, and the balance of 
     R4 million is payable in equal monthly instalments over 48 months. The receivable relating to the consideration due is secured by mortgages over immovable property 
     of the purchaser. The assets disposed of comprise largely trademarks and related intellectual property, which were impaired in prior years (refer note 4). 
     The transaction is anticipated to result in a profit on disposal of R5 million included in profit before income tax. 
   
   No other material events have occurred between the reporting date and the date of this report.

11 Contingent liabilities

   - Tax on 2004 share incentive scheme - As reported in note 44.1 on page 159 of the annual integrated report for the year ended 30 June 2017, SARS had previously
     issued additional assessments to wholly owned subsidiary, Spur Group (Pty) Ltd, in respect of the 2005 to 2012 years of assessment totalling R22.034 million
     (comprising R13.996 million in additional income tax and R8.038 million in interest). The additional assessments were issued following the disallowance of a deduction
     claimed in respect of the 2004 share incentive scheme. The total of the additional assessments was paid in previous financial years. Following failed alternative
     dispute resolution proceedings, the matter has been referred to the income tax court, and is expected to be heard in the week commencing 26 February 2018. The board,
     in consultation with its tax advisors, remains confident that it will be able to prove that SARS has erred in disallowing the deduction. Consequently, no liability
     has been raised in respect of the assessments issued to date and the payments made to date are accounted for as prepayments of income tax.

   - Other contingent liabilities - There have been no further changes to the status of other contingent liabilities referred to in note 44 on page 159 of the
     annual integrated report for the year ended 30 June 2017.

12 Fair value of financial instruments

   - Forward purchase derivative financial instruments - The forward purchase derivative financial liabilities (disclosed as derivative financial liabilities on
     the face of the consolidated statement of financial position), previously utilised by the group to economically hedge the impact of the cash-settled share
     appreciation rights granted in terms of its long-term share-linked employee retention scheme, were measured at fair value at each reporting date (refer note 6). All
     these instruments had matured and were settled during the current period. Full details of the terms of the instruments and the fair values thereof were disclosed in
     note 25 on page 132 of the annual integrated report for the year ended 30 June 2017.

   - Contingent consideration liability - The liability for the contingent consideration referred to in note 5 (as disclosed on the face of the consolidated
     statement of financial position) was initially recognised at fair value and is subsequently recognised at fair value at each reporting date. The liability is
     designated as a level 3 financial instrument in terms of the fair value hierarchy as inputs into the valuation model are not based on observable market data. The fair
     value is determined based on the expected aggregate purchase consideration payments, discounted to present value using a risk-adjusted discount rate of 21.4% (at 31
     December 2016: 26.5%; at 30 June 2017: 21.6%), being the weighted average cost of capital of the subsidiary. The reduction in the discount rate relative to the prior
     year is attributable to reduced forecasting risk as the group now has sufficient historic information to be able to forecast the business's future profits more
     accurately. The expected purchase consideration payments were determined by considering various possible scenarios, and the probability of each scenario. The
     significant unobservable inputs are the forecast profit before income tax and the risk-adjusted discount rate. The fair value adjustment included in profit before
     income tax for the period is a charge of R10.607 million (six months ended 31 December 2016: R2.816 million; year ended 30 June 2017: R0.777 million) and relates to
     the adjustment for the time value of money (including the impact of the reduced discount rate), as well as changes to the forecast profit before income tax as
     referred to in note 5. The estimated fair value of the contingent consideration liability at the reporting date would change if the forecast profit before income tax
     for the risk-adjusted discount rate were to change as follows:

                                                                                                                         Increase/(decrease) in fair value of 
                                                                                                                             liability and decrease/(increase) 
                                                                                                                                  in profit before income tax

   Change in variable:

   - Decreased by 2%                                                                                                                                       39

   - Other financial instruments - The group has not disclosed the fair values of loans receivable, financial assets included in trade and other receivables, cash
     and cash equivalents, loans payable, bank overdrafts, financial liabilities included in trade and other payables and shareholders for dividend as their carrying
     amounts are a reasonable approximation of their fair values. In the case of loans receivable and loans payable, the directors consider the terms of the loans
    (including in particular, the interest rates applicable) to be commensurate with similar financial instruments between unrelated market participants and the carrying
     values are therefore assumed to approximate their fair values. In the case of financial assets included in trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents,
     bank overdrafts, financial liabilities included in trade and other payables and shareholders for dividend, the durations of the financial instruments are short and it
     is therefore assumed that the carrying values approximate their fair values.

13 Related parties

   There have been no material changes in the nature or value of the related party transactions reported in note 42 on page 153 of the annual integrated report for the
   year ended 30 June 2017.

14 Standards issued but not yet effective

   A number of new standards and amendments to standards are effective for the group's financial reporting period beginning after 1 July 2018. These are detailed in note
   46 on page 167 of the annual integrated report for the year ended 30 June 2017. None of these standards or amendments have been early adopted in the preparation of
   these interim condensed consolidated financial statements. The key standards that are expected to have a potential or actual impact on the group's consolidated
   financial statements include IFRS 9 - Financial instruments, IFRS 15 - Revenue from contracts with customers, and IFRS 16 - Leases. No further progress has been made
   on the transition to these standards, subsequent to the preparation of the consolidated financial statements for the year end 30 June 2017 referred to above.
