(Official Notice)
The board of directors of the Company ("the Board") advises the following:



Given the expansion of the Company's geographic footprint with its latest acquisition of MWave in the USA, Juergen Dresel will step down as managing director of Alaris Antennas (Pty) Ltd., the South African subsidiary of the Company, with effect from 1 April 2019 to allow him to focus on his role as Group CEO.

She will continue to fulfil her responsibilities as Group chief financial officer of the Company until such time as a new full-time Group chief financial officer is appointed, where after she will retain a board seat as an executive director. In the interim, Elsie Muller, Group financial manager, will assume a greater responsibility and assist Gisela during this transition period.



The board has commenced a process of identifying a suitable replacement for Gisela and shareholders will be advised as soon as such appointment has been made.

(Official Notice)
A review of the financial results for the six month period ended 31 December 2018 by management has indicated, with a reasonable degree of certainty, that the earnings per share and headline earnings per share are expected to be between 3.49 cents and 7.21 cents. This is between 61% and 81% lower than the comparative period's earnings per share and headline earnings per share of 18.62 cents for the six months ended 31 December 2017.



The decrease is mainly from a decline in revenue at Alaris Antennas and COJOT compared to the corresponding interim period. In the previous financial year, the Group had a very strong comparative first half with COJOT posting an exceptional performance. A significant portion of the underlying subsidiaries' performance is associated with long sales cycles on larger opportunities with six to twelve month delivery timeframes. The timing of these opportunities can impact the results significantly and performance should be evaluated over a 12 month period.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by Alaris's auditors. Alaris's financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 19 March 2019.

The timing of these opportunities can impact the results significantly. The group had a very strong comparative first half in FY18 with COJOT posting an exceptional performance. This year's first half revenue has been impacted by a low order intake in the first quarter. However, order intake picked up in the second quarter.

Both companies are strongly focused on research and development and hold exploitable patented technologies that can be monetized into the future. Cross-selling opportunities and joint development projects have taken place in the past year. Processes are in place to capitalize further on synergies between Alaris Antennas and COJOT. With their combined skill-set, sharing of ideas and pursuing cutting-edge technologies, customers will receive the benefits of an expanded product portfolio with more competitive features and excellent customer service.



The US administration has for the first time in a few years, voted for and approved an increased defense budget to the amount of USD716 billion for 2019. This reflects an increase of USD82 billion from 2017. The sales team has managed to unlock opportunities with new and existing customers in this market providing an opportunity for the Group to deliver against its client centric model into the future. International expansion is an important part of the Group?s global strategy and management will remain on the lookout for further opportunities to increase the global footprint. We are pleased with the progress made with the acquisition in the US and the aim is to conclude the conditions precedent as stipulated in the signed agreement in the first quarter of this new financial year.

(Official Notice)
A review of the financial results for the year ended 30 June 2017 by management has indicated that:

*the basic earnings per share (?EPS?) is expected to be between 19.62 cents and 21.69 cents, reflecting an increase of between 45.66% and 61.02% compared to the EPS of 13.47 cents for the year ended 30 June 2016;

*the headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) is expected to be between 13.88 cents and 15.34 cents, reflecting an increase of between 3.04% and 13.88% compared to the HEPS of 13.47 cents for year ended 30 June 2016; and

*the normalised earnings per share is expected to be between 13.70 cents and 16.74 cents, reflecting a decrease of between 30.60% and 15.20% compared to the normalised earnings per share of 19.74 cents for the year ended 30 June 2016.



Normalised earnings, as determined by Alaris, is calculated by adjusting profit for the reversal of the contingent consideration asset, (loss)/profit on discontinued operations and profit (net after tax) on the disposal of African Union Communications Proprietary Limited (?Aucom?) as well as legal and consulting fees for acquisitions and disposals.



In accordance with the Company?s normalised earnings policy and to ensure comparability, the normalised earnings per share for the year ended 30 June 2016 was re-presented, in order to exclude the profit on discontinued operations.



The decrease in normalised earnings per share is primarily driven by the swing in foreign exchange, moving from a profit last year to a loss this year. The positive effect of the 40 million shares repurchased as part of the disposal of Aucom on the weighted average number of shares in issue, will only reflect in the next financial year.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by Alaris? auditors. Alaris? financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 19 September 2017.

Shareholders are referred to the circular to shareholders dated 25 April 2014, wherein shareholders were advised that the Company and PSG Private Equity (Pty) Ltd. (?PSG Alpha?) had entered into a Preference Share Subscription Agreement on 4 March 2014 in terms of which PSG Alpha subscribed for, and the Company issued, 20 400 000 redeemable, convertible preference shares of no par value (?Preference Shares?), at a subscription price of R2.50 per Preference Share for a total subscription consideration of R51 million. PSG Alpha subscribed for the Preference Shares on 1 July 2014 (?Effective Date?).



In terms of the Preference Share Subscription Agreement, the Company shall be obliged to compulsorily redeem the Preference Shares on the first business day following the third anniversary of the Effective Date, being 3 July 2017 (?Redemption Date?), to the extent that Preference Shares have not been converted by PSG Alpha prior to the Redemption Date. Shareholders are advised that PSG Alpha has not converted the Preference Shares given that the Alaris share price is currently lower than the conversion price of the Preference Shares. Accordingly, the total consideration of R51 million will be repaid on the Redemption Date.



Alaris has sufficient cash available to redeem the Preference Share and has no other bank debt. The Company shows good organic growth prospects and has secured in-principle funding commitments from South African banks, at a more favourable financing rate, to fund future potential acquisitions. The redemption of the Preference Shares, as opposed to a conversion, also does not result in dilution to Alaris shareholders.



Alaris is pleased that PSG Alpha remains a key shareholder with a 25.6% shareholding in the Company.

- the earnings per share is expected to be between 13.18 cents and 13.76 cents compared to the loss per share of 2.91 cents for the year ended 30 June 2015;

- the headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) is expected to be between 11.95 cents and 14.99 cents, reflecting a decrease in HEPS of between 21.50% and 1.50% compared to the HEPS of 15.22 cents for the year ended 30 June 2015. The decrease in HEPS is as a result of the earn out of Aucom being concluded at 30 June 2016 with a higher than estimated profit, resulting in the release of the contingent consideration asset; and

- the normalised earnings per share is expected to be between 28.96 cents and 32.24 cents, reflecting an increase in normalised earnings per share of between 76.50% and 96.50% compared to the normalised earnings per share of 16.41 cents for the year ended 30 June 2015.



Normalised earnings is calculated by adjusting profit for the fair value adjustment of the contingent consideration asset, goodwill impairment, loss on discontinued operations and profit (net after tax) on disposal of Compart and legal and consulting fees for acquisitions and disposals.



Normalised earnings per share is calculated by dividing normalised earnings by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue.



The company?s financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 12 September 2016.

Shareholders of Alaris (?Shareholders?) are referred to the announcements on SENS by Alaris on 19 February 2015, 1 April 2015, 9 June 2015, 30 June 2015, 22 July 2015 and 21 August 2015 (?Previous Announcements?) in which it was advised, inter alia, that Alaris had entered into an agreement with ARA on 19 June 2015 and finalised on 27 June 2015 (?Merger Agreement?) in respect of the implementation of the proposed acquisition of 100% of the issued share capital of ARA, which acquisition was to have been structured as a series of mergers to qualify as a ?reorganisation? under the provisions of section 368(a) of the United States of America (?USA?) Internal Revenue Code, which Previous Announcements also set out the salient terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement.



Termination of Merger Agreement

As advised in the Previous Announcements, the obligation of, inter alia, Alaris to consummate the transactions contemplated in the Merger Agreement was subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions prior to the date specified in the Merger Agreement (?End Date?).



Shareholders are hereby advised that not all the conditions, as specified in the Merger Agreement, were fulfilled by ARA by the End Date, and efforts to negotiate revised terms to address risks raised in light of the unfulfilled conditions were not successful.



Accordingly, Alaris has exercised its right to terminate the Merger Agreement.



Alaris regrets the termination, especially considering the significant resources that were devoted to this acquisition. Management however, believes it was in the best interest of Alaris and its Shareholders to terminate the Merger Agreement in light of the uncertainties created by the conditions that were not fulfilled and the inability to address the risks resulting therefrom. Alaris has however, used the experience to improve its understanding of the United States regulatory landscape and will continue to explore opportunities to further penetrate the United States market to bring value to Alaris and its Shareholders.



Alaris wishes ARA all the best in its future endeavours.

Revenue for the year grew to R132.1 million (R89.7 million). Gross profit rose to R70.1 million (R59.7 million). Operating loss was recorded at R6.9 million (profit of R6.8 million). Total comprehensive loss attributable to owners of the company came in at R107.2 million (profit of R7 million). In addition, headline loss per share was at 11.48cps (headline earnings per share of 7.41cps).



Prospects

The Group profit potential is indicated by considering the historical annual profitability of the different segments. Commercial and CCS performance this year was disappointing and getting these divisions to breakeven and back to profitability is a priority for the year ahead. We anticipate further growth in our profitable segments and considerable reduction in losses in the loss making segments. DS started the 2015 year with 50% higher order book than 2014 which suggests continued revenue growth.



Aucom should benefit from the potentially large African DTV rollout projects and vertical expansion of product offering. Commercial will capitalise on 4G/LTE rollout by the network operators increasing demand for our products. The Johannesburg Light Pole initiative may allow CCS to gain traction, and the cost base has been significantly reduced. Skunkworks have novel and Intellectual Property rich products and the DTV product range has broad consumer market appeal. The product development activities currently in SkunkWorks have some products reaching maturity which will hopefully exploit real market demand.



The RNS acquisition is nearing completion and our current assessment is that they are capable of achieving their profit targets. RNS fits the group well with good synergies in a number of segments and possible project and cross selling opportunities. We maintain an acquisition pipeline and we are engaging with several targets locally and internationally. The focus will be to secure a European or USA footprint to support the DS product range and distribution potential, to continue to grow European customer base for Commercial, and further identifying companies which fit our market profile and provide synergies to the Group.

In terms of the Listings Requirements of JSE Ltd, companies are required to publish a trading statement as soon as they become reasonably certain that the financial results for the period to be reported on will differ by more than 20% from the previous corresponding period.



Accounting for the African Union Communications ("Aucom") transaction in terms of IFRS has resulted in a range of accounting complexities that makes understanding the financial results difficult. IFRS3 (Business Combinations) specifically requires accounting treatment which does not, in management?s view, provide a realistic reflection of the performance of the Group. It is therefore important for shareholders to consider the detailed results commentary together with the reported headline earnings figures when these are made available.



Management will be reporting adjusted headline earnings that attempts to provide a more accurate view of the year ended 30 June 2014. These however still include a loss in Aucom for the 4 months since the transaction became effective on 28 February 2014 despite the fact that Aucom exceeded their profit guarantees for the 12 months to 30 June 2014.



Further to the trading statement released on SENS on 30 June 2014, a review of the financial results for the year ending 30 June 2014 and specifically the accounting treatment of the Aucom acquisition has indicated that the loss per share is expected to be between 91.43 cents and 111.74 cents and headline loss per share is expected to be between 10.33 cents and 12.63 cents compared to the earnings per share and the headline earnings per share of 10.48 cents for the year ended 30 June 2013.



Excluding the impact of entries required under IFRS3 which required the creation and impairment of goodwill in respect of the acquisition of Aucom, as well as once-off transaction costs, the Group would have reported adjusted headline earnings of 0.66 cents per share for the year ended 30 June 2014 compared to the prior year headline earnings of 10.48 cents per share.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by Poynting?s auditors. Poynting's year-end financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 30 September 2014.

As soon as a final binding agreement has been concluded, further details will be disclosed.

Accordingly, a review of the financial results for the year ending 30 June 2014 by management has indicated that the earnings per share and the headline earnings per share are expected to be at least 50% lower compared to the earnings per share and the headline earnings per share of 10.48 cents for the year ended 30 June 2013. A further trading statement will be published once the Company has a greater degree of certainty with regards to its financial results for the year ending 30 June 2014.



The Defence division showed strong growth but this was to a large extent offset by losses in the Commercial, New Projects and CCS divisions as they continued to invest in product development, new technology and marketing. Despite the new business of African Union Communications Proprietary Limited (Aucom) forming part of the Group since 1 July 2013, the financial results were consolidated from 1 March 2014 in terms of IFRS 3 and IFRS 10. Aucom?s performance for the 12 months has been better than expected and has exceeded their 12 month profit guarantee. The costs of the acquisition are however included in the financial results for the year ending 30 June 2014, which had a material negative impact on profitability. The benefit of the Aucom acquisition is expected to reflect in the first half of the 2015 financial year.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by Poynting?s auditors. Poynting?s year-end financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 12 September 2014.

Revenue increased to R53.5 million (R42 million). Gross profit rose to R37.7 million (R28 million) and operating profit rose to R4.2 million (R2.5 million). Net attributable profit increased R3.8 million (R2.2 million). In addition, headline earnings per ordinary share grew to 4.10cps (2.44cps).



Outlook

Defence Division is poised to continue producing excellent results in the second half with a larger order book, strong pipeline and well established customer relationships. Commercial Divisions second half performance should be better than the dismal first half results. CCS division is not expected to produce any fireworks in the second half but costs have been reduced and a better performance in revenue is expected than the first six months. Aucom has healthy orders and opportunities and indications are that their second half performance will also be equal to or better than the first half.



Poynting historically has had a stronger second half performance and this year market indications and the strong order books are all an indication that we should improve on the first half performance. Overall performance is never certain due to dependence on a significant portion of turnover associated with shorter term sales cycles and normal business risks. The Growth Plan of Poynting is continuing with the main focus being acquisitions to improve international sales channels and add on acquisitions to current Defence, Telecommunication and DTV business areas. Poynting is trying to position itself as a leading player in the Triple play future market where it is widely believed that TV, Voice and Internet communications will converge since all are inherently digital. We are actively engaged in this growth plan with a pipeline of opportunities which are being actively pursued.

Further to the trading statement released on SENS on 17 December 2013, a review of the financial results for the six months ended 31 December 2013 ("interim financial results") by management has indicated that the basic earnings per share and the headline earnings per share are expected to be between 3.86 and 4.34 cents (representing an increase of between 58% and 78%), compared to the basic earnings per share and the headline earnings per share of 2.44 cents for the six months ended 31 December 2012.



Furthermore, shareholders are advised that the financial results of African Union Communications (Pty) Ltd. ("Aucom") for the six months ended 31 December 2013 have not been included in Poynting's interim financial results, following the acquisition of 100% of the issued share capital of Aucom by Poynting ("Aucom Acquisition") as detailed in the circular to shareholders dated 31 January 2014.



This is due to the effective date of Poynting's control over Aucom being 1 March 2014 in terms of International Financial Reporting Standards, as the last of the conditions precedent to the Aucom Acquisition, being shareholder approval, was obtained at the general meeting held on 28 February 2014.



Aucom had an unaudited profit after tax of approximately R8.4 million for the interim period up to 31 December 2013.

The Aucom Acquisition is expected to deliver a better than expected contribution to Poynting.



Poynting's interim financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 31 March 2014.

Revenue increased to R38.8 million (R33.7 million). Gross profit rose to R25 million (R19.2 million) and an operating profit of R2.8 million (loss of R300 000) was made. A net attributable profit of R2 million (loss of R2.8 million) was recorded. In addition, the headline earnings per share from continuing operations amounted to 2.20cps (loss of 0.01cps).



Prospects

Poynting expect similar or better Defence revenues in the second half of the financial year and have an order book supporting this assessment. We are also actively looking for acquisitions which will enhance the Defence product range and/or give us better access to the USA market. The Defence Division products are sold via long-term relationships with several local and international partners. Company brand and reputation is key to acceptance in this market, which took many years to develop. We lately see many signs that Poynting is recognised as an internationally respected supplier in this marketplace. Whereas Poynting previously battled to get customers to visit our exhibits at international defence shows, we now find that we have to allocate additional personnel to deal with the increase in enquiries. Our order pipeline has also grown in size and number of interested customers from all over the world.



Commercial revenues and profits will be better due to healthy existing product sales and additional revenue from the micro base stations for which significant orders are already in place or imminent. Poynting Direct has been turned around from a loss making first half to an expected profitable second half year, which positively impacts on Commercial Division profitability. Commercial products in the cellular data space is benefiting from the exponential growth in cellular data, both locally and internationally. Cellular antennas now comprise the majority of revenue and also show the fastest growth. Sales of products in the Wi-Fi/WiMax space have been shrinking during the past 2 years. Poynting historically has had a stronger second half performance and indications are that we should maintain or improve on first half performance. Overall performance is however never certain due to the uncertainty associated with the Commercial Division sales, which can change relatively quickly due to fluctuations in market sentiment.

Dividend

No dividend was declared.



Prospects

The Defence Division is expected to show continued revenue growth and profits in 2012. This Division currently has a stronger order book than at the same point last year and has a healthy number of proposals and opportunities in the pipeline. International acceptance and demand for the group's Defence products is showing growth and we are developing a broader customer and product base. The Commercial Division is starting to re-invest in product development again after some severe reduction on spending in this area for the past two years. Good opportunities are becoming apparent in the area of cellular coverage driven by the high growth in cellular data products both locally and internationally. Poynting envisages increased growth in cellular product sales. The group's drive to combine cellular products with installations in South Africa is proving popular. The Commercial Division is also forming a close relationship with a BEE partner to start providing innovative coverage solutions to cellular service providers. This offering has been well received and the company hopes to expand this business in future. Poynting has also had discussions with an international company regarding a possible acquisition by the Commercial Division during the last financial year. Even though this proved unsuccessful the group shall continue to look for further opportunities to increase their operational scale and international footprint. Poynting is also on the lookout for similar opportunities for corporate activity to strengthen our international footprint for the Defence Division.

A net attributable loss of R2.8 million (profit of R2.3 million) was recorded. In addition, the headline loss from continuing operations amounted to 0.01cps (earnings of 1.74cps).



Outlook

Overall, the board is optimistic about the prospects of the group. This optimism is supported by improved macro-economic data both locally and internationally. Due to the order pipeline for the Defence Division being more robust than what it was during the previous comparative period, the board believes that the Defence Division will see improved turnover during the next six months. In addition, good margins are expected to boost group profitability during the remainder of the financial year.



During the reporting period, as a result of improved margins, the Commercial Division's turnover increased by 34% compared to the previous comparative period. If market conditions continue to improve at the current rate, the Commercial Division is expected to improve profitability during the remainder of the financial year.



Despite the losses experienced in the reporting period, the board is cautiously optimistic of a turnaround going forward. The Commercial Division is expected to at least maintain current performance and the Defence Division's order book is looking relatively strong with deliverables already scheduled for roll out over the next few months.

Poynting reported revenue of R76.29 million, up 16% from R65.82 million, and a gross profit of R48.89 million, up 66% from R29.40 million. Operating profit was R4.31 million compared to a loss of R9.36 million in the previous financial period. Attributable profit to equity holders increased to R2.54 million from a loss of R6.57 million previously. HEPS was 2.97cps, up from a loss of 7.58cps.



Prospects

The defence division should show continued revenue growth and profits in 2011. This division currently has a stronger long-term order book than at the corresponding time last year and has a healthy number of proposals and opportunities in the pipeline. The defence division had to increase overheads and infrastructure to cope with the increased revenues, but is seeing an increase in orders of "off-the-shelf" products, which makes it easier to scale operations. The commercial division product sales have stabilised at lower levels than those which were achieved in previous years. The product range is still in demand and the company has not experienced any loss of existing customers. Much lower sales to such customers have been experienced, however, especially in the export markets. The commercial division acquired new promising customers during the tough year and is also involved with some exciting new products and projects. The division is well positioned to benefit from an improving market. The base station equipment division has been absorbed into the products still being sold by the commercial division. The company is not very optimistic about the short-term sales of base station equipment and are experiencing low trading as are competitors.

A review of the financial results for the year ended 30 June 2010, by management, has indicated that earnings per share is expected to be between 2.18 and 3.68 cents and headline earnings per share are expected to be between 2.27 and 3.79 cents compared to a loss per share of 7.51 cents and a headline loss per share of 7.58 cents for the year ended 30 June 2009. Revenue has increased, gross margins have improved and operational expenses were materially reduced compared to the previous financial year and the company will generate a profit for the financial year ended 30 June 2010.



Divisional performance was as follows:

*Defence Division exceeded expectation;

*Commercial Division sales have stabilised;

*The Base Station Division had a strong performance in the first half of the financial year with reduced sales in the second half due to a general mobile network capital expenditure slow down before the 2010 World Cup; and Poynting Direct, which sells Commercial products to trade and retail customers, once again showed satisfactory growth in revenues and contributed to group profitability.

The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by Poynting's auditors. Poynting's year-end financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 30 September 2010.

(C)
Revenue for the interim period ended 31 December 2009 was up by 32% to R38 648 million (2008: R29 255 million). Gross profit increased by 39% to R22 170 million (2008: R15 908 million), while earnings attributable to ordinary shareholders rose to R2 261 million (2008: -R897 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per ordinary share also increased to 2.55 cps (2008: -1.04 cps).



Dividend

No interim dividend was declared.



Prospects

Overall, the board of Poynting is optimistic about the prospects of the group as a whole. This optimism is supported by improved macro-economic data both locally and internationally. The board believes that current revenue levels can be maintained by the defence division for the remainder of the financial year, although realistically, performance is likely to be somewhat subdued compared to the exceptional first six months experienced by this division. The base station equipment division is also experiencing improved trade and could maintain current performance levels. However, since orders from the network operators are sporadic, financial performance for this division can be volatile and difficult to accurately forecast. If market conditions continue to improve at the current rate, the commercial division is expected to produce modest profits over the final six months of the year. Significant growth in sales by Poynting direct, increased export orders as well as resumption of orders by large corporate customers are encouraging indicators that profitability is likely to return to this division in the near future. The majority of group profits in the six month period ended December 2009 was due to performance in the second quarter of the 2010 financial year ("second quarter"). This improved performance follows three consecutive quarters in which losses before tax cumulatively exceeded R8 million. Poynting's performance in the second quarter once again confirms the improvement of market conditions. These improvements cause the board to believe that prospects are good for solid profits in the remaining six months of the financial year.

Notice of AGM

Notice was given that the second annual general meeting of shareholders of Poynting will be held at 33 Thora Crescent, Wynberg, Sandton, 2090 at 10:00 on Wednesday, 20 January 2010, to transact the business stated in the notice of the annual general meeting, which notice forms part of the annual report.

(C)
Revenue increased to R65.8 million (R56 million). An operating loss of R9.4 million (profit of R7.4 million) was made. A net attributable loss of R6.6 million (profit of R5.8 million) was registered. In addition, a headline loss per share of 7.58cps (22.15cps) was recorded.



Prospects

Management has been successful in reducing overheads in the commercial division by approximately 50% compared to prospectus forecasts. This was done by reducing staff numbers and other measures. This reduced overhead structure has improved profitability in this division in the second half of the current financial year. Poynting is experiencing significant growth in sales in Poynting Direct, which is encouraging. Corporate and export sales are however the main areas of concern. Export sales have been impacted by the global crisis and our local corporate sales are down largely due to new developments in the telecommunications industry creating "technological uncertainty". This includes the new Electronic Communication Network Service licences, technologies offered by new entrant Neotel and the introduction of WiMAX services by several current operators. Although all of these developments show significant potential for the future of Poynting Commercial products, the current technology flux is delaying the company receiving orders from various large customers.

Dividends per share

No interim dividend was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

The company has been successful in reducing overheads in the commercial division by 40% compared to our prospectus forecasts. This was done by way of a reduction in staff numbers and other cost reduction measures. This reduced overheads structure will likely improve profitability in this division in the second half of the financial year. Despite this, current market conditions will require further cost saving exercises. The company is experiencing significant growth in sales in Poynting Direct, which is encouraging. Corporate and export sales are however our main areas of concern. Export sales have been impacted by the global crisis and our local corporate sales are down largely due to new developments in the telecommunications industry creating "technological uncertainty". These include the new Electronic Communication Network Service licences, the technologies offered by new entrant Neotel and the introduction of WiMAX services by several current operators.

(Official Notice)
A review of the financial results for the six months ended 31 December 2008 by management has indicated that Poynting will report a loss per share and a headline loss per share of between 0.9 and 1.1 cents. The main reason for the decrease in earnings is that the company has not achieved its anticipated sales targets. Export sales have been impacted by the global crisis and local corporate sales are down largely due to new developments in the telecoms field which are causing "technological uncertainty" and as a result are delaying orders by various large customers. The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by Poynting's auditors. Poynting's interim financial results are expected to be released on SENS on or about 31 March 2009.

Despite the turmoil in the markets, the Financial Mail reported that Poynting CEO Andre Fourie still feels that it was the right move to list. The group expects to increase revenue from R56 million to R130 million for the year to 30 June 2009. Fourie added that the market downturn is not expected to hurt Poynting as demand for wireless is still growing fast. In addition, a further boost to the group will come from Telkom's plans to create its own wireless network.
