Long4Life, which listed on the JSE Limited on 7 April 2017, holds a portfolio of assets in the
leisure and lifestyle sector incorporating retail, wholesale, manufacturing, service, merchandising,
distribution and ecommerce.

FINANCIAL OVERVIEW
The Group has delivered satisfactory results for the first half of the year, with all acquired
businesses contributing to the results for the period. Performance was in line with expectations,
notwithstanding the prevailing challenging economic climate.

Revenue of R1.53 billion and trading profit of R177.6 million was generated during the six months
under review. Net finance income totalled R40.3 million with cash and cash equivalents of
R1.05 billion on hand at period end. Headline earnings amounted to R145.7 million, translating into
16.0 cents per share based on the 912 205 863 weighted average number of shares in issue.

Long4Life's three main business segments operate in the consumer and retail market, which are
traditionally seasonal. Revenue and associated profit generation is typically lower in the first half
of the year, while the second half gains significantly from the holiday season spending. The first half
trading profit margin before central costs was satisfactory at 13.2% for the period.
Working capital is typically absorbed in the first half of the year as the businesses ramp-up for the
season's trading, negatively impacting operating cash flows.

The management teams of the acquired businesses, which have been aligned to Long4Life's
strategic imperatives, are making good progress in ensuring products and services are suitably
adapted and positioned for current market conditions. It remains at an early stage in the Group's
longer-term objectives and ambitions, but the momentum, contribution and commitment being
delivered thus far is significant and will serve the Group, and its shareholders, well into the future.

COMPARATIVE FIGURES
Comparative figures are presented for the six months ended 30 September 2017, as well as
for the eleven-month period ended 28 February 2018. Following the change of the Company's
year-end from March to February, these half-year results are to 31 August 2018 as opposed to
30 September 2017 in the prior year. Additionally, none of the Company's acquisitions had become
effective by 30 September 2017, rendering the half-year comparatives largely incomparable.

DIVIDEND
No interim dividend has been declared as the Board has decided that until such time as the
Group is fully invested, it will continue paying dividends on an annual basis.

RESTATEMENT
Shareholders are advised that the Company has restated revenue and cost of sales contained
in the Group financial results for the eleven-month period ended 28 February 2018. The
restatement has no impact on the Group's profit, earnings per share, headline earnings per share
or its financial position. Further detail of the restatement is contained in a separate note to the
interim financial statements presented herewith.

OPERATIONAL REVIEW
Sport and Recreation
This division, which includes Sportsmans Warehouse, Outdoor Warehouse and Performance
Brands, contributed 60% of the Group's revenue and 64% of trading profit before central expenses
in the six months under review.

The division demonstrated a resilient trading performance notwithstanding continued macro-
economic headwinds and low consumer confidence.

In the aggregate, sales were 6.3% higher than the corresponding period, albeit that retail price
inflation dropped to 0.6% (6.6% a year earlier). On a like-for-like basis, retail revenue was
essentially flat, while the wholesale operation Performance Brands, which owns and distributes
product under the First Ascent, Cape Storm, Second Skins and African Nature brands, increased
external sales by 6.2%.

Gross margins have been temporarily affected by the 1% increase in VAT to 15% on 1 April 2018.
Trading expenses increased by 8.5%, driven by CPI and a 3.4% weighted increase in trading area.

The store roll-out programme is disciplined and the operating model is benefiting from the ongoing
investment in store design and refurbishment.

Beverages
This division includes Chill Beverages, acquired effective 1 March 2018, and Inhle Beverages.
The businesses provide a complementary blend of own brands, contract packaging and house
(private) label production. Production facilities in the Western Cape and Gauteng accompanied
by storage and distribution in all major centres, provide geographical efficiencies and product
diversification, enabling access to all significant markets throughout the country.

On a pro forma basis (given that Long4Life had not yet entered the beverage industry in the
corresponding previous period), the growth is encouraging with case volumes up 24% and revenue
higher by 21%. Pleasingly, the division's primary own brands, Score Energy and Fitch & Leedes,
reflected good growth. The Beverages division represented 36% of the group's revenue and 29% of
trading profit before central expenses in the first half.

During the period under review, significant investment in upgrades and enhancements to the
facilities infrastructure was made, which has increased capacity and improved capability. The timing
of these facility upgrades is advantageous as peak trading and capacity utilisation is traditionally
weighted to the second half in the summer months, with around 60% of full year revenue
anticipated in this period.

Improved operational and logistical efficiencies and sustained growth in market share bodes well
for the future.

Personal Care and Wellness
The Personal Care and Wellness division includes the Sorbet group of operations - Sorbet
Salons, Nail Bars, Dry Bars, Sorbet Man and Candi & Co. The division's suite of products and
services were complemented during the period by the acquisition of Lime Light, which distributes
spa and salon products and equipment. Lime Light contributed 19% of the division's trading
profit in the period under review.

The Personal Care and Wellness division represented 4% of the group's revenue and 7% of trading
profit before central expenses in the first half.

Sorbet has performed according to expectations and continues to grow as a significant brand in the
industry, now boasting in excess of 200 stores countrywide. Enquiries from potential franchisees
remain strong, with growth in stores limited by suitable site availability.

Post the reporting period, the Group, through a 59% stake in newly established Long4Life Health
Proprietary Limited, acquired 61% of the ClaytonCare Group Proprietary Limited ("Clayton") resulting 
in an effective 36% economic interest therein. Clayton is a sub-acute rehabilitation medical group providing
comprehensive inpatient treatment and care. The acquisition is a strategic initiative and creates a
platform for opportunities for Long4Life to enter into the high growth wellness space.

Prospects
Leveraging the Group's shared knowledge and platforms is expected to accelerate and act as
a catalyst for growth. This success will be driven by the strategic ability and experience of the
Group's executive team fuelled further by the depth of human capital at the operational level.

Over the last year, the Long4Life team has focused on enhancing its decentralised management
strategy, while working with the respective management teams to improve processes, policies and
efficiencies within its three divisions. Progress has been made in all areas and it is anticipated that
improved performances and profitability will materialise as a result over the medium term.

While the existing portfolio has substantial potential, the Group's cash resources of around
R1 billion, strong balance sheet and the gearing optionality derived from cash-generating
businesses, provide a basis for further acquisitions. These are continually being assessed and
anticipated to lead to the addition of exciting new opportunities.

Changes to the Board
Ms Mireille Levenstein was appointed as an executive director on 15 October 2018 and will be
assuming the role of Chief Financial Officer with effect from 1 November 2018. Shareholders are
referred to the SENS announcement dated 8 October 2018 advising of the retirement of Mr Peter
Riskowitz as a director with effect from 31 October 2018.

The Board would like to thank Mr Riskowitz for his contribution and welcomes Ms Levenstein.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED INTERIM CONSOLIDATED
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


BASIS OF PRESENTATION OF CONDENSED INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
These condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance
with and containing the information required by IAS 34: Interim Financial Reporting, as well as
the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and
Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council. They do not
include all the information required for a complete set financial statements. However, selected
explanatory notes have been included to explain events and transactions that are significant
to an understanding of the changes in the group's financial position and performance from the
period ended 28 February 2018.

In preparing these condensed interim consolidated financial statements, management make
judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the
reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense.

These results have not been audited or reviewed by the group's auditors. The condensed interim
consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Sarah Bishop CA(SA), under the
supervision of Peter Riskowitz CA(SA), and were approved by the board on 23 October 2018.

ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The accounting policies applied in the preparation of these condensed interim consolidated
financial statements are in terms of IFRS and are consistent with those applied in the previous
consolidated financial statements. There was no significant impact from the adoption of IFRS 15:
Revenue from Contracts from Customers and IFRS 9: Financial Instruments. Therefore, no transition
adjustments have been processed to retained earnings.

CONDENSED SEGMENT ANALYSIS
The L4L group has the following reportable segments: Sport and Recreation, Beverages, Personal
Care and Wellness and Central.

Operating segments are identified based on the nature of the underlying businesses and on the
same basis that financial information is reported internally for the purpose of allocating resources
between segments and assessing their performance by the group's chief operating decision-maker,
defined as the group executive committee. Reportable segments have been identified after applying
the quantitative thresholds per IFRS 8: Operating Segments, and after aggregating operating
segments with similar economic characteristics.

                                                                                          Restated

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
When measuring the fair value of an asset or a liability, the group uses market observable data as
far as possible. Fair values are categorised into different levels in a fair value hierarchy based on the
inputs used in the valuation techniques categorised as follows:

Level 1:  Measured using unadjusted, quoted prices in an active market for identical financial
          instruments.

Level 2:  Valued using techniques based significantly on observable market data. Instruments in this
          category are valued using:
          (a) Quoted prices for similar instruments or identical instruments in markets which are
              not considered to be active, or
          (b) Valuation techniques where all the inputs that have a significant effect on the
              valuation are directly or indirectly based on observable market data.

Level 3:  Valued using valuation techniques that incorporate information other than observable
          market data and where at least one input (which could have a significant effect on
          instruments' valuation) cannot be based on observable market data.

The following table shows the carrying amounts and fair values of financial assets and financial
liabilities, including their levels in the fair value hierarchy for financial instruments measured at
fair value. It does not include fair value information for financial assets and financial liabilities not
measured at fair value if the carrying amount is a reasonable approximation of fair value.

Valuation technique
The value of the put NCI option liability was determined using a profit multiple designed to
approximate the fair value of the shares of the non-controlling interest's proportionate share
of the profit after tax for the period ending 31 August 2018, discounted using a risk-adjusted
discount rate.

Significant unobservable inputs
Profit after tax growth rates                                               25% to 32%
Profit after tax multiple                                                   9.0 to 9.5
Risk-adjusted discount rate                                                        16%

Inter-relationship between significant unobservable inputs and fair value measurement
The estimated fair value would increase (decrease) if:
-  the profit after tax were higher (lower); or
-  the risk-adjusted discount rate were lower (higher)

ACQUISITION OF SUBSIDIARIES
During the period under review, the Group acquired 100% of the issued share capital of Chill
Holdings (Pty) Ltd ("Chill"), 100% of EMSA Distribution (Pty) Ltd (trading as "Lime Light") and the
remaining 50% of Score Energy (Pty) Ltd ("Score") which it did not already own. The effective
date in the case of the Chill and Lime Light acquisitions was 1 March 2018, while the Score
transaction was effective 11 May 2018. The acquisitions were funded through a combination of
cash and shares.

Goodwill arose on the acquisitions as the anticipated value to the group exceeded the fair value of
the net assets acquired. The consideration paid for the business combinations effectively included
amounts in relation to the benefit of revenue growth and future market development. These
benefits are not recognised separately from goodwill because they do not meet the recognition
criteria for identifiable intangible assets. The acquisitions have enabled the Group to expand its
presence in the leisure and lifestyle sector and as a consequence, has broadened the Group's base in the
marketplace.

In accordance with IFRS 3: Business combinations, if new information is obtained within one year of
the date of the acquisition about facts and circumstances that existed at the date of the acquisition,
then the accounting for the acquisition may be revised and adjustments may be made to the fair
value of the assets and liabilities acquired as set out below.
