Steinhoff Investments, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Steinhoff International Holdings N.V., has issued Preference Shares that are listed (but currently suspended) on the JSE. On 5 April 2019, Steinhoff Investments gave the market an indication regarding the timing of the release of its 2017 and 2018 audited consolidated financial statements ("the April Announcement" and "the Investments Financials").



Progress made

Steinhoff Investments' holding company, Steinhoff International Holdings N.V., has subsequently released its audited 2017 Annual Report on 7 May 2019, and yesterday released its audited 2018 Annual Report ("the International Group Financials").



Unfortunately, and despite significant efforts being exerted by all parties, the extraordinary complexities encountered in completing the now-released International Group Financials resulted in the impossibility of parallel completion of the Steinhoff Investments Financials. As such, it is now clear that the previously disclosed timeline for completion of the Investments Financials cannot be met.



Revised timetable

Steinhoff Investments now estimates that it will publish its audited consolidated annual financial statements, for both 2017 and 2018, before the end of September 2019.



This change does not impact the Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. reporting timetable.



Shareholders and other investors in Steinhoff Investments are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the securities of the Group.

The requisite majorities of creditors of SEAG and SFHG have provided their consent to the amendments and modifications and the waiver as set out in CVA Consent Request No. 3.



Accordingly, the amendments and modifications and the waiver have become effective, including the extension of the CVA Long-Stop Date to 5:00pm (London time) on 30 June 2019.

The disclosure of accounting irregularities at Steinhoff has sparked a number of litigation and claims solutions initiatives with respect to the company and other parties. In parallel with defending the claims which have been brought, in principle the Company would always consider whether there may be alternative approaches to concluding claims, such as negotiated settlements, if it is considered to be in the interests of the Company and its stakeholders. Accordingly, the Company has requested that representatives of claimants (groups) disclose to the Company, or procure the disclosure, of relevant information on i.a. the identity of claimants and the size of their shareholdings (or former shareholdings), for those claimants which they contractually represent. The Company wishes to emphasise that the fact that such requests have been made does not mean that negotiated settlements will eventually be agreed or are imminent.

Steinhoff, through an indirect wholly owned subsidiary, currently owns c. 26% in KAP, which shareholding is Steinhoff's residual interest in KAP following a successful placement of c.450 million shares on 13 March 2018.

In the event that all of the Placing Shares are sold pursuant to the Placing, Steinhoff will no longer hold an interest in KAP and those members of KAP's Board of Directors nominated by Steinhoff intend to resign.



Information relating to the Placing

The Placing Shares will be offered to qualifying institutional investors only (which includes private client platforms in South Africa), being investors to whom the offer may be lawfully made without having to file or register any offering or related documentation with any securities regulatory authority in any jurisdiction, and the Placing does not and will not constitute, nor is it intended to constitute, an offer to the public to purchase any shares. The book will open with immediate effect and is expected to close as soon as possible. Steinhoff reserves the right to close the book at any time. Pricing and allocations will be announced as soon as practicable following the closing of the book.



The Placing will be carried out by The Standard Bank of South Africa Limited ("Standard Bank") and Investec Bank Limited ("Investec") (each of Standard Bank and Investec being a "Bookrunner" and, together, the "Joint Bookrunners").

The company announced that Greenlit Brands (Pty) Ltd. (formerly known as Steinhoff Asia Pacific Group Holdings (Pty) Ltd. (?Greenlit?)) has refinanced certain of its financial indebtedness.



The refinancing represents a positive step for Greenlit, as it secures a multi-year facility with a syndicate of three Australian-based banks, on current market terms. Greenlit remains independent from the Group in terms of its working capital requirements.



As part of the restructuring, the Company and Steinhoff Europe AG (?SEAG?) are also released as guarantors in respect of Greenlit?s financial indebtedness.



The refinancing represents another milestone in the overall restructuring of the indebtedness of the Group.



The key terms of the refinancing are:

A new senior revolving credit facility and bilateral facilities of AUD256 million for Greenlit to refinance the existing senior financing of Greenlit and its subsidiaries. The refinancing extends the maturity date of the company?s financing to 6 October 2020. The economic terms of the refinancing are broadly in line with existing senior facilities.



Existing intragroup loans from SEAG, Steinhoff UK Holdings Ltd. (?SUKHL?) and Retail Holdings SARL (?RHS?) to Steinhoff Asia Pacific Holdings (Pty) Ltd. (?SAPH?) and Greenlit will remain in place and will be amended and restated to be divided into two: Tranche A (AUD96 921 708) repayable in March 2021 and Tranche B (AUD227 578 292) repayable in June 2021. Cash pay interest will be permitted on certain tranches of the intergroup loans, permitting cash payments of c. AUD4.4 million per annum.



The new senior financing will share the same security package as the intragroup Tranche A loans which will rank as second lien. The security package for the intragroup Tranche B loans will replicate the security package for the new senior financing and the intragroup Tranche A loans but will be third ranking. A catch up payment of deferred cash pay interest will be made to the lenders under the intragroup loans referred to above.



Certain amendments will be made to the existing trade mark licenses used solely within the APAC business between the Group and Greenlit and its subsidiaries to provide enhanced rights to Greenlit and its subsidiaries.

The board of directors of the Company has taken a decision to declare a dividend to holders of the 15 000 000 cumulative, non-redeemable, non-participating, variable rate preference shares issued by the Company (?the Preference Shares?) in respect of the period 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2018 (?the Preference Dividend?).



Accordingly, the board declared a gross dividend of 414.02568 cents per Preference Share in respect of the Preference Dividend, payable on Monday 20 August 2018 to those holders of Preference Shares recorded in the books of the Company at the close of business on Friday 17 August 2018



At the date of declaration there were 15 000 000 (Fifteen million) Preference Shares in issue.



In addition, and with reference to the previous dividend declaration announcement published on 29 June 2018 (?the 29 June 2018 Announcement?), the Company will increase the Preference Dividend by a gross amount of 10.03132 cents per share (?the Additional Dividend?). In the 29 June 2018 Announcement, the Company indicated that the Additional Dividend would amount to 6.9379 cents per share and not 10.03132 cents per share as now calculated. The Additional Dividend was increased to compensate holders for the period between the previous preference dividend declaration date, being 29 June 2018 and the eventual payment date of 23 July 2018 (both days included ).



Therefore the total gross amount payable to holders (including the Additional Dividend) amounts to 424.057 cents per share. The Preference Dividend will be payable in the currency of South Africa and will be subject to a local dividend tax rate of 20%. This will result in a net dividend (including the Additional Dividend) of 339.2456 cents per Preference Share unless the Preference Shareholder is exempt from dividend tax or is entitled to a reduced rate in terms of an applicable double-tax agreement. Steinhoff Investments? income tax reference number is 9375/046/71/2.

Business Day highlighted that Steinhoff International Holdings, which gets more than half its revenue from Europe, indicated that its Frankfurt listing will take place in December. A secondary listing allows the industrial conglomerate exposure to institutional shareholders in Europe, where it is cheaper to raise capital.

Outlook



With its mass market positioning and critical mass through well-recognised and trusted local retail brands, supported by relevant infrastructure, efficient supply chain, and e-commerce strategy, Steinhoff Europe is in a good position to efficiently link customers to the group's price competitive product range and it continues to take market share in Europe.



With continued investment in stores, the European retail footprint and properties with fixed-yield internal rental streams will protect the sustainability of the group's retail operations and cost base. In addition, the increasing value of the group's asset base, underpinned by the property portfolio, increases the group's ability to secure long-term financing at competitive rates.



The sale of the JDFS division of JD Group will enable JD Group to focus on the strategic repositioning and growth of its retail operations. Management believes that the correct strategic and operational plans are being put in place to grow South African market share and increase this segment's profit contribution.



The 45% investment in KAP will in future be equity accounted. The underlying businesses in KAP are performing well, which bodes well for sustained good returns on this investment.

Steinhoff currently holds 61.8% of the ordinary shares in KAP International Holdings Ltd. (""KAP") (net of treasury shares). The board of directors of Steinhoff have taken a decision to decrease its stake to approximately 45% through an accelerated bookbuild offering ("Bookbuild").

Steinhoff accordingly announces the launch of a Bookbuild of up to 400 000 000 listed KAP shares, to qualifying investors, subject to pricing that is acceptable to Steinhoff. The bookbuild will allow Steinhoff to equity-account its strategic investment in KAP.



Steinhoff also announces that it has received formal approval from the Financial Surveillance Department of the South African Reserve Bank within the framework of the Exchange Control Inward Listing Rules, to seek a listing on the prime standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Steinhoff intends to commence with the listing process as soon as possible, subject to prevailing market conditions, after the release of its 30 June 2014 audited annual results in early September 2014. Once the Frankfurt listing has been implemented, Steinhoff will continue to be listed on the JSE Ltd. ("JSE") through an inward listing. The Bookbuild will support the preparation for the proposed Frankfurt listing of a focused retail group.



Launch of the bookbuild

Up to 400 000 000 listed KAP shares will be offered to institutional investors through the Bookbuild process. The bookbuild does not constitute, and is not intended to constitute, an offer to the public to purchase any shares.



The Bookbuild will open at 08h00 on 24 June 2014 and may close at any time thereafter. Pricing and allocations of the offering will be announced as soon as practicable following the closing of the book. As a condition to the bookbuild, Steinhoff has agreed that it will not sell any further shares in KAP through the JSE for a period of 180 days from the closing date of the bookbuild.

Revenue for the interim period grew 17% to R67.4 billion (R57.4 billion). Earnings before interest, dividend income, equity accounted earnings and taxation rose 25% to R6.3 billion (R5.0 billion). Profit attributable to owners was 44% higher at R4.6 billion 9R3.2 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per share shot up to 243.0 cents per share (171.8 cents per share).



Dividend to preference shareholders

The board has declared a gross dividend of 354 cents per preference share on or about 4 March 2014, in respect of the period from 1 July 2013 to 31 December 2013 from income reserves, payable on Tuesday, 22 April 2014, to those preference shareholders recorded in the books of the company at the close of business on Thursday, 17 April 2014.



Outlook

In line with the European strategy to focus on margin enhancement, the various initiatives embarked upon to extract benefits from our global supply chain should continue to protect and enhance group margins. The Kika-Leiner and Mobilier Europ?en transactions will further support the group's retail footprint in Europe and the ability of its global supply chain to extract more efficiencies.



In Africa management has increased its focus on controllable factors such as costs, productivity and the retention and growth of market share in our African retail and industrial businesses. Despite the increased provisions in the JD Group's consumer finance business, should collections continue to deteriorate, it will result in additional debtor's costs and then the results of this division will remain subdued.



JD Group is contemplating a rights issue and engaged the Steinhoff Group for underwriting. The proposed rights issue and proposed underwriting requires serious consideration and stakeholders will be advised as soon as the board of JD Group has finalised its deliberations and the terms of any underwriting.



The group remains well capitalised and comfortable with the diversity of its funding structure. The volatility of the rand exchange rate will continue to influence the group's reported earnings.

The Financial Mail reported that Steinhoff CEO Markus Jooste's make-or-break bet in 2011 to buy Conforama for EUR1.2 billion is starting to pay off as Europe pulls itself out of recession. Consumer confidence in the EU "improved markedly" in August 2013, which might signal better days ahead. Jooste said that sales in France were up 5% year-on-year in July and August, beating forecasts of zero growth.

Prospects

The prevailing global economic environment remains volatile. The group is confident that the diversity inherent in its assets and earnings will continue to protect the group against any prolonged downturn in any one market where it operates, notwithstanding the fact that the majority of the group?s assets, liabilities and earnings are situated and generated in Europe, and the volatility of the rand exchange rate, will continue to influence the group?s reported earnings. The group is confident that its investments in the fragmented household goods market in Europe will continue to present growth opportunities to our integrated retail operations. In Africa, the current low economic environment is expected to continue and has led to a focus on containment of costs and improved efficiencies to maintain margins in a more competitive low-volume environment. The favourable interest rate environment, especially in Europe, remains conducive to property investment opportunities. These investments will promote the longevity of the retail operation without the volatility in profitability that may arise as a result of rental escalations. The serviceability of the group?s debt and the diverse mix of debt instruments provide comfort in the sustainability of the group?s capital structure.

The Directors of Steinhoff announce that agreements were concluded, which if implemented, and subject to certain conditions precedent, will result in Steinhoff Europe AG or its Nominee ("SEAG"), acquiring the entire issued share capital of the kika and Leiner groups of Companies (kika-Leiner). The kika-Leiner Group is one of the leading furniture retail companies in Europe, with 7500 employees, shops in 73 locations, 50 of which are in Austria with the remainder of the locations in Central and Eastern Europe, and yearly net sales of approximately 1.2 billion euros. kika-Leiner was founded 105 years ago in Austria by the Leiner and Koch families.



Strategic Rationale:

kika-Leiner fits the Steinhoff?s geographical footprint as Steinhoff?s current retail operations in Europe do not have a footprint in Austria and have limited presence in Central and Eastern Europe. kika-Leiner was built on solid foundations and, as with the rest of the Steinhoff Group has secured it?s future via the ownership of its owned properties, strong local brands and focus on maximising value to the end consumer. It is also envisaged that significant benefits will flow to both Groups from collective sourcing and logistics operations and other cross platform improvement strategies.





This announcement is released solely for information purposes in view of recent media speculation in Austria and in the interest of good corporate governance and stock market practices.

Profit attributable to owners of the parent rose 11% to R3.2 billion (R2.9 billion). In addition, headline earnings per share improved by 5% to 173.4 cents per share (165.8 cents per share).



Dividend

The board has declared a dividend of 356 cents per preference share on or about 5 March 2013, in respect of the period from 1 July 2012 up to and including 31 December 2012.



Outlook

The fragmented European household goods retail market continues to present many opportunities to the group's retail operations focused on the mass-market value-conscious consumer. In many of the markets where the Conforama group operates, the group's strategy to change our product mix and overhead structure to focus on furniture and home decoration sales (in contrast with electronic goods) should prove decisive in growing margins.



In Africa, the industrial businesses of KAP expect to benefit from infrastructural development both in southern Africa and selected other African countries. JD Group remains confident that its consumer finance division will continue to generate acceptable returns on capital employed. In addition, the previous investments in technology and infrastructure should result in efficiencies to support sustainable margins of the retail business.



The global markets and future consumer spending patterns remain uncertain. However, the group is satisfied that the diversity inherent in its earnings will continue to protect the group against any prolonged downturn in any one market where we operate.

Shareholders were advised that the issue price of the capitalisation issue share award ("the share award") and the ratio of entitlement thereto have now been determined, with reference to the announcement of the terms of the capitalisation issue share award ("the share award") published on the Securities Exchange News Service ("SENS") of the JSE on 7 November 2012 and in the press on 8 November 2012 ("the terms announcement").



The issue price applicable to the share award is 2 926.91 cents per share, which is the volume weighted average traded price per Steinhoff share on the JSE Limited ("the JSE") over the five trading days up to and including Wednesday, 14 November 2012, being the last practical date before the finalisation and release of this announcement on SENS.



Based on the issue price referred to above, the ratio of entitlement to capitalisation issue shares will be 3.41658 shares for every 100 shares held on 30 November 2012 ("the record date"). Therefore, the maximum number of capitalisation issue shares that will be issued, should all shareholders retain the share award, is 60 934 040 shares.



Shareholders will receive capitalisation issue shares in the company unless they elect by the record date to receive the final cash distribution of 80 cents per share (also to be paid from the share premium account) in respect of the financial year ended 30 June 2012.



Based on the ratio of entitlement of 3.41658 for every 100 shares held, the cash distribution of 80 cents per share translates to a discount of 20% to the equivalent value of the capitalisation issue shares valued at the issue price.



Application has been made to the JSE for the maximum possible number of capitalisation issue shares to be issued in terms of the share award to be listed with effect from the commencement of business on Monday, 26 November 2012. An adjustment to the number of the capitalisation issue shares listed will be made on or about Tuesday, 4 December 2012, in accordance with the actual elections made.



The salient dates applicable to the share award as announced on SENS on 7 November 2012 remain unchanged.

In addition, the African investment transactions completed during this year will further strengthen and diversify the group. These investments have been consolidated for only three months and will further strengthen the geographical diversity of the group once these businesses have been consolidated for a full year.

Shareholders of JD Group Ltd ("JD Group") and Steinhoff were referred to the joint announcement released by JD Group and Steinhoff on SENS on Friday, 30 March 2012 relating to the partial offer by Steinhoff to independent JD Group shareholders becoming unconditional and incorporating the revised salient times and dates pertaining to such offer. Full details of the partial offer were contained in the circular to JD Group shareholders dated 11 February 2012 ("the circular"). All terms in this announcement bear the same meaning as set out in the circular.



Shareholders of both companies are advised that the partial offer closed at 12:00 on Friday, 20 April 2012 and attracted acceptances in respect of 16.6 million JD Group shares and excess applications in respect of 21.7 million JD Group shares. As the partial offer was in respect of a fixed number of JD Group shares (38.2 million), 99.365% of all excess applications, including those received from the option grantors and from the other parties who undertook to make JD Group shares available to Steinhoff for purchase, have been allocated on an equitable pro rata basis to achieve the fixed number of JD Group shares. Accordingly, Steinhoff has now acquired an additional 17.7% interest in JD Group, as a consequence of which its holding has increased from 32.4% to 50.1% of JD Group's issued share capital, net of treasury shares. As a result, Steinhoff exchanged 611.2 million of its shares in KAP International Holdings Ltd. ("KAP") with Independent JD Group shareholders who accepted the partial offer, as a consequence of which its holding in KAP has now decreased from 88.0% to 62.0%.

The dividend declared will be subject to Dividends Tax ("DT"). The local DT rate is 15%. In determining the DT to withhold, Secondary Tax on Companies ("STC") Credits amounting to 34.47 cents per share, utilised by the Company, should be taken into account. Accordingly, the dividend to utilise for determining the DT due is 339.53 cents per share and the DT due therefore amounts to 50.93 cents per share. Hence, preference shareholders will receive a net dividend after DT of 323.07 cents per share. In terms of the DT legislation, the DT amount due will be withheld and paid over to the South African Revenue Service ("SARS") by a nominee-company, stockbroker or Central Security Depository Participant ("CSDP") (collectively "Regulated Intermediary") on behalf of shareholders. However, all shareholders should declare their status to their Regulated Intermediary, as they may qualify for a reduced DT rate or they may even be exempt from DT. The issued preference share capital of Steinhoff Investments is 15 000 000 preference shares. Steinhoff Investments` income tax reference number is 9375/046/712.

Our strategy of building quality businesses of scale and profitability with significant integration capability continues. As the global economic recovery gathers pace, our global businesses are well positioned to maintain our growth in a sustainable and profitable way. The acquisition of Conforama is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. The proposed acquisition represents a great advance towards the completion of our mass-market retail footprint in continental Europe, and in addition will accelerate growth within the existing supply chain. Notwithstanding the acquisition of Conforama, we remain dedicated to our traditional long-term strategic partners and customers in Europe. The European household goods market remains very fragmented and consolidation within our market space will continue.



Steinhoff are confident that our European businesses, in leveraging our network of relationships, customers and strategic partners, are optimally positioned to benefit most from the growth and consolidation expected in our industry in the medium term. In Africa, we will continue to evaluate and explore opportunities that could further benefit our strong positioning in the integrated logistics, retail and raw material businesses. Rand strength will continue to impact the group?s rend reported earnings if the growth in euro profits does not outperform the effect of the change in the average rand translation rate. Capital markets have further improved and the group?s focus on sustained sound credit metrics will continue to protect the financial flexibility and optimise the group's capital structure and cost of capital. While our interim results are satisfying, we are excited about the future of our company. Our business is well positioned to continue to deliver sustainable profits. We continue to investigate opportunities to extract maximum value from the business we have been building over the past forty years.

Business Day highlighted that Steinhoff International, the South African based manufacturing and logistics company that saw its turnover from European operations nearly triple over the past the past three years to last year, called its European retail operations the highlight of the past quarter. Steinhoff is benefiting from its positioning in the lower end of the furniture market in Western Europe, where consumers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland kept up spending in the three months to September.



The strong performance of retail operations in Europe is the basis of the company's search for acquisitions. CEO Mark Joooste indicated that this territory presents a number of exciting consolidation opportunities, as well as access to territories in which the company does not currently have presence. One possible acquisition is that of Conforama, France's second largest furniture retailer. Owner of the luxury goods company PPR is looking to sell and Steinhoff is the leading contender.

A successful purchase would help Africa's largest furniture company further expand in Europe, Jooste commented at the AGM. PPR, the owner of brands including Puma and Gucci, is seeking to dispose of its retail units, including the Fnac music and video stores and mail-order retailer Redcats, to focus on building its luxury and lifestyle businesses.

Revenue declined by 4% to R24.8 billion (R25.9 billion). EBITDA remained around R2.5 billion. Net attributable profit declined by 1% to R1 579 million (R1 598 million). In addition, headline earnings per share fell by 2% to 115.1cps (117.3cps).



Dividend

Preference dividend number nine of 402 cps has been declared.



Outlook

The strengthening of the rand against the euro continues to put pressure on the group's rand reported earnings and the current spot-rates are already well below the average conversion rate applied for the period under review. Rand strength will impact the group's full year rand reported earnings if the growth in euro profits does not outperform the effect of the change in the average rand translation rate. In line with the group's business model of increasing the group's retail footprint, corporate opportunities and strategic partnerships are continuously evaluated, both in Europe and in southern Africa.



The group's vertically integrated business model remains a key competitive advantage and, together with its flexibility of supplementing own produced goods with third party sourced products, continues to result in market share gains. The buying-down trends in consumer spending patterns continue to benefit the group's mass-market discount positioning and bodes well for a stable performance in the remainder of the financial year. The strategy employed to dedicate floor space to higher positioned brands in the store networks of retail partners continues to deliver promising results.

Shoprite CE Whitey Basson may scupper plans between Shoprite Holdings Ltd ("Shoprite") and Steinhoff as reports about the two firms eyeing each other emerge. According to Business Report, this would not be the first time Basson nixed possible merger plans. In 2005 it was rumoured that Shoprite and Massmart Holdings Ltd were in talks to merge, but Basson opposed the plan from the start and nothing happened. In addition, as part of a possible deal, Shoprite chairman Christo Wiese may want to swap his stake in Shoprite for shares in Steinhoff. However, without Basson's backing the deal might not occur.

The group continues to foster its existing trading relationships and the spread of its businesses continues to result in market share gains due to the market consolidation trends. The vertically integrated structure insulates the group?s sustainable earnings capacity whilst its sound financial position allows it to grow, both organically and by acquisition. In line with our business model of increasing the group's retail footprint, corporate opportunities and strategic partnerships are continuously evaluated, both in Europe and in southern Africa.

The company would like to advise its shareholders of changes in the responsibilities of certain of its executive management team to be implemented with effect from 1 May 2009.

Mr Leon Cohen, who has acted as non-executive chairman of PG Bison group since 1996, retired recently and it was resolved that Mr Chris van Niekerk succeed him as executive chairman, resulting in a vacancy of chief executive officer for the PG Bison group. The PG Bison group includes the groups interests in forestry, saw milling and its panel product operations. Jan van der Merwe, chief financial officer of Steinhoff, indicated that he wished to reduce his global responsibilities and take up this opportunity. The Remcom resolved to redeploy Jan van der Merwe in an operational capacity and to appoint him as chief executive officer of the PG Bison group. In view of this, the Remcom further resolved to restructure the responsibilities of the International Group Services team in the interim, and also to appoint chief financial officers in line with the group's operational structure for the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere respectively. Shareholders are therefore advised of the following changes in executive responsibilities:

*Jan van der Merwe (49) - Jan van der Merwe will be appointed chief executive officer of the PG Bison group and step down as chief financial officer and director of Steinhoff.

*Chris van Niekerk (61) - Chris van Niekerk will step down as CEO of the PG Bison group and will take over the responsibility of executive chairman of that group. Chris will remain a member of the board of Steinhoff Africa.

*Stehan Grobler (49) - Stehan Grobler, currently an alternate director, will be appointed to the board of Steinhoff. Stehan will remain company secretary.

*Piet Ferreira (53) - Piet, currently an alternate director, will be appointed as director of Steinhoff.



The shareholders are furthermore advised that the current positions and responsibilities of the company's chief executive officer, Markus Jooste, the CEO for the southern hemisphere operations, Danie van der Merwe and the company?s financial director, Frikkie Nel, remain unchanged.

These are the group's first IFRS condensed consolidated interim financial statements, therefore First-time adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards has been applied.



The group's revenue increased by 144% from R7 059 million to R17 235 million. A substantial portion of this increase was attributable to the consolidation of the results of Unitrans and Homestyle which became subsidiaries with effect from January 2005 and July 2005 respectively. Net finance expense for the period rose to R99 million (R57 million) in accordance with the expanded group operations. Headline earnings per ordinary share increased by 28% to 75c (59c) with basic earnings per ordinary share increasing 26% to 74c (59c). The annualised return on average ordinary shareholders' funds increased to 21% (20%), while the net asset value per ordinary share grew to 738cps from 727cps. The group's operational cash flow was R1 498 million (R930 million), while the net increase in working capital of R1 256 million (R480 million), was attributable to an increase in accounts receivable commensurate with the group's higher activity levels.



Dividend

It is the group's policy to declare ordinary dividends once a year after its financial year end at 30 June.



Prospects

The new management structure at Homestyle is now fully operational and a strong turnaround is expected during the remainder of the current financial year. The consumer spending environment in the UK continued to be tough during the period under review, with only slight improvements being noticed since the January sales period. As a result, the consolidation trend prevalent in that market is expected to continue. Steinhoff and Homestyle stand to benefit substantially due to Homestyle's footprint and sound financial position (after its recapitalisation in July 2005), coupled with Steinhoff's world-wide sourcing and manufacturing capabilities.
