INTRODUCTION The retail and consumer environment were the toughest Libstar has experienced since its inception 14 years ago. The retail sector is experiencing structural pressures brought about by economic uncertainty and lower levels of consumer spending. Against this backdrop, the group performed satisfactorily, with the positive volume growth experienced during the first half of the year persisting and accelerating slightly into the second half of the year. Organic revenue was bolstered mainly by the successful launch of Lancewood-branded dairy products. The group continues to focus on the supply of innovative and value-added products, mainly to targeted markets, which have proven to be more resilient, as well as focusing on low-cost manufacturing and procurement efficiencies. These are key to maintaining a competitive advantage in a challenging market. However, as outlined in the segmental review, normalised EPS and HEPS were affected by the impairment in the Niche Beverages category. OVERVIEW OF THE GROUP Libstar is a leading producer and supplier of high-quality products in the consumer-packaged goods ("CPG") industry and markets a wide range of products in South Africa and globally. The group provides a multi-product offering in several categories across multiple channels, strategically positioning itself within the food, beverage, home and personal care ("HPC") sectors to maintain the flexibility to capitalise on growth areas in the CPG industry. The group operates a number of business units. Business units are supported from the central office with functional business activities, including human resources, finance, sales, marketing and supply chain. Growth is driven from the central office both organically and through expansion projects, as well as acquisitions. Libstar's head office drives the broad group strategy frameworks, guidelines and governance policies and procedures, and generally provides the platform benefits that assist new small to medium-sized business units to grow exponentially. Key to this growth is the strategic allocation of capital by Libstar to fund investments in working capital and infrastructure development to build manufacturing capability and operational efficiencies. STRATEGY Libstar focused on the following initiatives in F2018, all geared towards innovation to counter the impact of the tough retail and consumer environments: - Category and channel development The detailed analysis of product categories, in-depth relationships with customers and knowledge of the market continued to highlight growth opportunities which, in turn, drive new product innovation to grow the group's market share and the overall size of selective markets; - Investment The group invested R349 million in new technologies, efficiency improvements and capacity expansion in key categories to remain competitive; - Systems Business unit information technology systems and processes are being standardised across the group. Significant upgrades to the group's information technology systems and processes were implemented in F2018; - Exploiting trends The growth of new trends in the market provides diverse opportunities to innovate products. The current, fast-growing trends in Libstar's markets include: - On-the-go and convenience eating. The group is meeting the consumer requirement to dine out of home through a range of products to quick service restaurants, such as McDonald's, KFC and Nando's and to family restaurant chains, such as Panarotti's, Mugg & Bean and Spur Steak Ranches; - Health and wellness preferences. The group has introduced a range of healthy nut snacks in the Snacks and Confectionery category, as well as a range of yoghurts under the Lancewood brand within the Perishables category; - Private Label and Dealer Own Brands (DOB) products. The fast-growing, value-for-money private label and DOB markets constitute c.44% of group revenue. This strategy, with a strong emphasis on innovation, allowed the group to achieve market share growth in a number of key businesses. In F2018 the group launched 387 new stock-keeping units (SKUs) and renovated 336 SKUs. FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE In the challenging operating environment of F2018, Libstar was able to deliver total revenue growth of 12.5% on the prior year. Organic revenue increased by 5.1%, comprising organic volume growth of 3.8% and organic price growth of 1.3%. The successful launch of new dairy products, such as the new branded, taste-differentiated yoghurt products in Q3 F2018 especially bolstered H2 organic revenue growth. The acquisition of Sonnendal Dairies in F2017 provided the additional capacity required for Lancewood to launch this new product range. Although gross profit margins recovered strongly during the second half of the year, mainly due to lower input costs in the dairy and dry condiment product categories, they were 0.6 percentage points lower than the prior year at 22.2% (F2017: 22.8%). This was driven by: - the additional revenue from Sonnendal Dairies (acquired at the end of F2017) at lower full-year gross profit margins, despite H2 F2018 margins improving in line with expectation; - prolonged promotional activity of value-added chicken products in retail and the under-utilisation of the newly-built Finlar chicken plant due to a delay in the launch of fully-cooked chicken products; and - lower realised foreign exchange translation gains of R56 million in F2018 compared to gains of R89 million in F2017. Operating expenses were well controlled at 16.6% of net revenue (F2017: 17.7%). The impact of unrealised foreign exchange translation losses of R46 million on profit before taxation was significant, relative to the gain of R40 million for the year to 31 December 2017. This resulted in net realised and unrealised foreign exchange translation gains in the current period of R10 million relative to R129 million during F2017. Finance costs decreased from the comparative period, despite additional finance charges related to working capital facilities. This was mainly due to the repayment of facilities from capital raised in the initial public offering and the renegotiation of group facilities. This reduced the group average weighted cost of debt to 8.97% from November 2018 (F2017: 9.77%). The group's tax rate was 32.6% (F2017: 36.5%), mainly impacted by the impairment in F2017 and the reversal of deferred tax assets on assessed losses related to historic subsidiaries of the group in F2018. In terms of cashflow, the group generated R505.0 million from operating activities (F2017: R572.6 million). Net working capital at the close of the period remained at 45 days (F2017: 45 days). This resulted in a net investment in working capital of R92 million (F2017: net reduction of R71 million). Net indebtedness following the initial public offering reduced to R1.2 billion from R1.9 billion at 31 December 2017. R1.1 billion of the R1.5 billion proceeds from the initial public offering was utilised to repay term loans. During the year under review, the group invested R346 million in capital expenditure, representing 3.5% of net revenue. The group also made a capital distribution of R800 million to its pre-IPO shareholders on 28 February 2018.

The acquisition has grown the group's footprint in the Perishables category and complemented the existing dairy offering. Lancewood and Finlar Fine Foods (Finlar) contribute 73% of Perishables' revenue and 88% of the category's normalised EBITDA. Lancewood had an outstanding year. As committed, Sonnendal Dairies' margins are steadily improving due to product diversification. As indicated previously, Sonnendal Dairies and Lancewood now operate as a single operation and will no longer be separately reported from F2019. Libstar continues to drive growth through innovation, including the introduction of higher-margin, new products, such as Lancewood's launch of new branded, taste-differentiated yoghurt products. Yoghurt sales are increasing, and market share growth was substantially ahead of initial expectations. The full benefits of the launch will flow through in the first half of F2019. Higher value sales of meat products contributed to Finlar's revenue growth, including the development of a Cajun chicken burger patty for McDonald's, which was also introduced to several regions elsewhere in the world. However, gross profit margins were adversely impacted by prolonged promotional activity of value-added chicken products in retail and the under-utilisation of the newly-built chicken plant due to a delay in the launch of fully-cooked chicken products. H2 F2018 showed an improvement in fresh mushroom production volumes, yields and sales mix in Denny. F2019 initiatives include a new sales channel strategy, a focus on value-added and differentiated products and the continued implementation of international industry best practice. Cheese and butter revenues were up year-on-year despite a very competitive market. Successful margin control initiatives and reduced input costs have bolstered gross profit margins. The above performance resulted in normalised EBITDA for Perishables increasing by 1.9% to R455 million (F2017: R446 million). Normalised EBIT decreased by 4.0% to R395 million (F2017: R412 million). Ambient Groceries - 25% of group revenue, 32% of group normalised EBITDA Cape Herb and Spice, Rialto Foods and Dickon Hall contribute 75% of revenue and 86% of normalised EBITDA in this category. Ambient Groceries revenue decreased 5.5% to R2 472 million (F2017: R2 615 million), impacted by weak international demand for dry condiments, as well as integration delays and industrial action experienced within the wet condiment sub-category during the first half of the year. The industrial action at Dickon Hall Foods in H1 was fully resolved and international demand for herbs and spices improved during H2. However, integration challenges, involving the combination of a number of non-fresh Denny production lines into the Montagu facility and the Ambient Groceries category, continued through to year-end. This business excludes fresh mushrooms and represents only 1% of group revenue. A revised sales demand planning programme will address these issues during F2019. The Ambient Groceries gross profit margin exceeded that of the prior year, mainly due to lower input costs of dry condiments. Normalised EBITDA decreased by 3.4% to R338 million (F2017: R350 million) and normalised EBIT by 6.5% to R292 million (F2017: R312 million) respectively. Snacks and Confectionery - 5% of group revenue, 7% of group normalised EBITDA Ambassador Foods contributes 100% of revenue and normalised EBITDA in this category. Snacks and Confectionery revenue increased 11.4% to R477 million (F2017: R429 million), driven mainly by the introduction of new products, as well as significant bulk volume sales of peanuts and raisins. Ambassador Foods' production of healthy nut snacks is a good example of how Libstar is exploiting the trend towards health and wellness preferences amongst consumers. Gross profit margins were held constant in the face of slower than expected Q3 2018 sales in some grocery products and significant promotional activity in granolas. Normalised EBITDA therefore increased by 2.1% to R73 million (F2017: R72 million) and normalised EBIT by 2.0% to R63 million (F2017: R62 million). Baking and Baking Aids - 6% of group revenue, 9% of group normalised EBITDA Amaro Foods and Retailer Brands contribute 92% of revenue and 93% of normalised EBITDA in this category. Baking and Baking Aids experienced strong growth in revenue and EBITDA in F2018. Revenue increased 21.8% to R628 million (F2017: R515 million). Revenue growth was driven by the incorporation of NCP Yeast and Cook 'n Bake into the Retailer Brands business unit from April 2018, as well as growth in the baking aids sub-category. Rolls and speciality breads performed strongly. This was driven by new product development within the retail channel, whilst some recovery was experienced in sales to the quick-service retail industry. Amaro Foods' production of gluten-free baked goods is another example of the group exploiting the trend towards health and wellness preferences amongst consumers. Amaro's flour tortilla wraps are also now supplied on a national scale to, amongst others, KFC, to capitalise on the consumer requirement for greater convenience. Normalised EBITDA and normalised EBIT increased by 20.1% and 23.9% to R93 million (F2017: R77 million) and R74 million (F2017: R60 million) respectively. The launch of new private label baking aids in the retail channel and the commissioning of a par-bake speciality bread facility during Q1 2019, with production to start from April 2019, are expected to support the category's growth trajectory in F2019. Niche Beverages - 7% of group revenue, 5% of group normalised EBITDA Elvin and Khoisan contribute 88% of revenue and 94% of normalised EBITDA in this category. Niche Beverages revenue increased 51.9% to R650 million (F2017: R428 million), driven by a strong full-year performance from the newly-acquired Khoisan Gourmet range. Whilst dairy blends and related products remain under pricing pressure, this sub-category showed an improved full-year performance. Normalised EBITDA and normalised EBIT increased more than 17-fold to R55 million (F2017: R3 million) and R46 million (F2017: -R3 million) respectively. The dairy-blend and fruit concentrate beverage operations of the group remained under significant competitive pressure during F2018, which is likely to persist for some time to come. To address this, a restructuring exercise was undertaken during H2 F2018, resulting in the decision to relocate the marketing and sales functions of non-beverage products into certain of the group's wet condiments facilities. This will yield future cost rationalisation benefits for the group. An impairment loss in the amount of R42 million was recorded in respect of the residual dairy-blend and fruit concentrate beverage operations, as the group deliberates its strategic options regarding this component of the business. Household and Personal Care - 9% of group revenue, 3% of group normalised EBITDA. Contactim and Chet Chemicals contribute 91% of category revenue and 82% of normalised EBITDA in this category. Household and Personal Care revenue increased 2.3% to R846 million (F2017: R827 million). Normalised EBITDA decreased by 16.9% to R36 million (F2017: R44 million) and normalised EBIT by 3.4% to R21 million (F2017: R22 million). This was a disappointing performance due to competitive pressures and an adverse change in product mix towards lower-margin products. Specialised Food Packaging - 2% of group revenue, 1% of group normalised EBITDA. Multicup contributes 100% of revenue and normalised EBITDA in this category. The margin pressure from unfavourable exchange rates had a negative effect on performance in F2018. Specialised Food Packaging revenue decreased 1.6% to R249 million (F2017: R253 million) and normalised EBIT decreased 20.9% to R13 million (F2017: R16 million). Normalised EBITDA decreased 19.2% to R14 million (F2017: R17 million). As expected, the launch of new eco-friendly products during H2 F2018 resulted in an improved second half of the year. This is expected to bolster F2019 performance. GROUP MATTERS During H2 F2018 Libstar made significant progress in establishing group-wide visibility of open foreign exchange contracts (FECs) and the formalisation of hedging policies across key business units. To continue lowering the cost of manufacturing, the group invested in a logistics tracking IT system, which is being piloted at Rialto Foods, and is set to improve import and export product costing abilities during F2019. These measures are set to culminate in the adoption of hedge accounting as an accounting policy during H1 F2019. This will ultimately assist to better match the volatility in FEC re-measurements to the transactions which they hedge. Until such time as hedge accounting is fully implemented for an entire year of trading, and all FECs entered into prior to the adoption of the hedge accounting policy have matured, the group may remain subject to more significant fluctuations in profitability caused by unrealised foreign exchange translation re-measurements. In relation to the broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) transaction set out in the Libstar pre-listing statement of 24 April 2018, the group did not incur any costs in terms of IFRS 2 share-based payments during F2018. OUTLOOK The economy is expected to remain sluggish for the foreseeable future, with a particularly difficult first half expected. These extremely difficult economic conditions are expected to continue impacting results. However, the group has a very clear growth strategy in the anticipated operating environment, focusing management's efforts on organic, capacity and acquisitive growth. Organic growth In the coming year, the group's primary focus will remain on expanding its existing businesses, improving efficiencies, and leveraging off the existing base to expand its product offering. Going forward, food inflation is likely to range between 0% to 2%, with growth therefore to be more volume-related. In a difficult market environment, the group will continue to focus on its strategy of supplying innovative products and will ensure that it remains a low-cost manufacturer of quality, value-added products. The group aims, with product innovation, to grow its market share and the overall size of the market in terms of new products and new utilisation of products. The management team will concentrate on the development of key channels and markets, supported by investment in group manufacturing capabilities and systems. It will also focus on new technologies and efficiencies to maintain and improve margins. Libstar is set to increase its penetration of independent retailers, wholesalers and exports, where the group has scope to grow. Capacity growth Libstar will increase the production capabilities and capacities of its business units by strategically investing further capital in plant and equipment and on specific earnings- enhancing capital projects. This increases output and allows it to produce products for customers in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. The group targets total capital expenditure as a percentage of group revenue to range between 2.5% to 3%, with the broad guideline of 35-40% on replacement capital expenditure and 60-65% on expansion capital expenditure. In the coming year, the benefits of new manufacturing facilities and added capacity is expected to positively impact F2019 trading results. The group has also continued to invest in technology to improve operational efficiencies and drive margin-enhancement through capacity expansion. As committed, Libstar has delivered on various growth opportunities through the completion of several earnings-enhancing projects. These include: - Commissioning of a new plant during H2 which adds in-house granola toasting capabilities. Similar in-house manufacturing initiatives are underway within the Perishables and Specialised Food Packaging categories; - Investing in a new hard-cheese manufacturing facility which adds in-house manufacturing capabilities in the Perishables category; - Commissioning of the par-bake frozen speciality bread facility in February 2019, with commercial production to commence in April 2019; - Commissioning of an outsourced manufacturing plant to manufacture cheese snacks for a third party, which has shifted from the initial Q2 2019 estimate to Q4 2019 due to a longer than expected project planning phase. F2019 initiatives include: - A new tea plant for the local and export market; - A new Pringles plant to manufacture this snack for a third party; - The expansion of its prepared meal capacity to further tap into the growing convenience market; and - New soft cheese value-adding and packing facility. Acquisitive growth The group's strategy is to acquire businesses that can add scale, provide additional capacity, new capabilities or new entry-points to high-growth categories. However, Libstar is not acquisition-dependent. The group did not conclude any acquisitions in F2018, but focused on the integration and expansion of the three acquisitions made late in F2017, namely Sonnendal Dairies, Millennium Foods and Khoisan Tea.

The group provides a multi-product offering in multiple categories across multiple channels, while strategically positioning itself within the food and beverage and HPC sectors and maintaining the flexibility to capitalise on growth areas in the CPG industry. 2. Basis of preparation and report of the independent auditor These audited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), including the disclosure requirements of IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting (IAS 34) and comply with the Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Reporting Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council, as well as the JSE Listings Requirements and the Companies Act, No 71 of 2008. These financial statements have been prepared by P Makate CA(SA) under the supervision of R Smith CA(SA), the Group Financial and Commercial Director, and CB de Villiers CA(SA). The results were approved by the board of directors on 12 March 2019 and the Directors take full responsibility for the preparation thereof. The financial results presented have been audited by the group's independent external auditors, Moore Stephens, which expressed an unmodified audit conclusion. The auditor also expressed an unmodified opinion on the annual consolidated financial statements from which these condensed consolidated financial statements were derived. The auditor's report on the condensed consolidated financial statements does not necessarily report on all of the information contained in this announcement. Shareholders are therefore advised that in order to obtain a full understanding of the nature of the auditor's engagement they should obtain a copy of the auditor's report on the abridged summarised consolidated financial statements and of the auditor's report on the annual consolidated financial statements which are available for inspection at the company registered office, together with the accompanying financial statements identified in the respective auditor's report. 3. Accounting policies The accounting policies applied by the group in these financial statements are consistent with those applied in the consolidated annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017 except as detailed below: IFRS 15 Revenue from contracts with customers The new standard features a contract-based five step analysis of transactions to determine whether, how much and when revenue is recognised. The new standard has not had any effect on the timing or quantum of revenue recognition for the group. The group predominantly and materially generates revenue by selling goods in accordance with terms which contain no material element of accrued or deferred revenue. IFRS 9 Financial Instruments In the current year, the group applied IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and the related consequential amendments to other IFRS standards that are effective for the annual period that begins on or after 1 January 2018. The transitional provisions of IFRS 9 allow an entity to not restate comparatives. Accordingly, no comparatives have been restated for purposes of these consolidated financial statements. The amendments introduced by IFRS 9 have not materially impacted the consolidate financial statements as presented. Normalised EPS and Normalised HEPS To arrive at normalised EPS, the after-tax earnings from continuing operations (as disclosed in the financial statements), is adjusted for the after-tax impact of the normalised EBIT adjustments shown above, excluding the after-tax impact of separately identifiable re-measurements as defined in accordance with IAS 33 Earnings Per Share read with circular 4 of 2018 Headline Earnings ("Headline Earnings Re-measurements"). To arrive at Normalised HEPS, the normalised EPS is adjusted for the after-tax impact of the Headline Earnings Re-measurements, the most common examples of which are (i) impairment losses on property, plant and equipment, goodwill and intangible assets and (ii) gains and losses on disposal of property, plant and equipment. The following standards, amendments and interpretations are not yet effective and have not been early adopted by the group (the effective dates stated below refer to periods beginning on or after the stated dates): IFRS 16 - Leases (effective from 1 January 2019) IFRS 16 was published in January 2016. It sets out the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract, i.e. the customer ("lessee") and the supplier ("lessor"). IFRS 16 replaces the previous leases Standard, IAS 17 Leases, and related Interpretations. IFRS 16 includes a single model for lessees which will result in almost all leases being included in the Statement of Financial Position. No significant changes have been included for lessors. IFRS 16 also includes extensive new disclosure requirements for both lessees and lessors. This new standard will most likely have a significant impact on the group. Had the new standard been implemented in the current financial year a lease asset and lease liability of approximately R301 million would have been recognised in the statement of financial position. The group has started a detailed assessment to determine the extent of the impact of IFRS 16 and will disclose more detailed information in future financial statements. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019, with early adoption permitted. The group will apply IFRS 16 for the first time in its financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2019. 4. Accounting judgements and estimates Management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts presented in the financial statements and related disclosures. Use of available information and the application of judgement is inherent in the formation of estimates. Actual results in the future could differ from these estimates. In preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements, the significant judgments made by management in applying the group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017, save as noted above. 5.
