TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE SIX-MONTH PERIOD ENDED 30 JUNE 2018

Shareholders are advised that Exxaro and its directors have reasonable certainty relating to the expected
financial results of Exxaro for the six-month period ended 30 June 2018.

Attributable earnings per share (AEPS) for the six-month period ended 30 June 2018 are expected to be
between 1 205 cents per share and 1 315 cents per share, an increase of between 41% and 54%,
compared to 852 cents per share reported for the six-month period ended 30 June 2017.

Headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the six-month period ended 30 June 2018 are expected to be
between 1 160 cents per share and 1 270 cents per share, an increase of between 32% and 44%, compared
to 882 cents per share reported for the six-month period ended 30 June 2017.

Whilst the coal business benefited from higher selling prices and volumes, the increases in AEPS and
HEPS are mainly due to the movement in the number of shares as a result of the implementation of the
Replacement BEE Transaction during 2017, resulting in the BEE shares being treated as treasury shares
and therefore excluded from the weighted average number of shares.

Shareholders are advised that Exxaro will release its reviewed financial results for the six-month period
ended 30 June 2018 on 16 August 2018. Further details are available on our website, www.exxaro.com.

The forecast financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed, audited
nor reported on by Exxaro’s external auditors.

This statement is issued in compliance with the JSE Listings Requirements.
