Trading statement - six months ended 30 June 2018

TRENCOR LIMITED
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)

ISIN: ZAE000007506
(“Trencor” or “the Company”)


TRADING STATEMENT - SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2018


As detailed in Trencor’s 2017 integrated annual report, with effect from 1 January 2018, the results
of Textainer Group Holdings Limited (“Textainer”) are no longer required to be converted from
US GAAP into IFRS for inclusion in the consolidated results of Trencor. As from that date, Textainer
is deconsolidated and accounted for by Trencor as an investment measured at fair value through
profit or loss. It follows that the interim results of Trencor for the six months ended 30 June 2018
(“current period”) are not comparable with its results for the corresponding six months ended 30 June
2017 (“prior period”).

Primarily due to the gain recognised on the deconsolidation of Textainer, as recorded in Trencor’s
2017 integrated annual report, there is an increase in Trencor’s basic earnings per share for the current
period. Conversely, accounting for Trencor’s shareholding in Textainer as an investment measured
at fair value through profit or loss results in an increased headline loss per share for the current period.

Pending publication of the interim results for the current period, shareholders are advised that the
Company expects:

-   basic earnings per share for the current period to be at least 486,7 cents or at least 200% (973,4
    cents) higher compared to the reported basic loss per share of 486,7 cents for the prior period.
-   headline loss per share for the current period to be at least 722,5 cents or at least 400% (578,0
    cents) greater than the reported headline loss per share of 144,5 cents for the prior period.

Except for the gain on the deconsolidation of Textainer, the financial information on which this
trading statement is based has not been reviewed nor reported on by Trencor’s independent auditors.

The interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2018 are expected to be published on the Stock
Exchange News Service on or about 28 September 2018. A further trading statement will be released
as soon as the Company has reasonable certainty on the expected earnings.
