RESTATEMENT OF COMPARATIVE NORMALISED EARNINGS

RMI shareholders are referred to the Stock Exchange News Service
announcement released by MMI Holdings Limited (MMI) on 27 February
2019 regarding changes to MMI’s primary earnings metric. MMI
indicated that its primary earnings metric, being normalised
headline earnings, would in future include the impact of
investment variances, actuarial basis changes and other non-
recurring items, which were previously excluded from its primary
earnings metric.

RMI treats its investment in MMI as an investment in associate and
equity accounts the results of MMI. This change in MMI’s primary
earnings metric flows directly through to RMI’s primary earnings
metric, being normalised earnings. The tables below provide the
original and restated normalised earnings reconciliation of RMI
for the six months ended 31 December 2017 and for the year ended
30 June 2018. Earnings and headline earnings are not impacted by
this change.

Normalised earnings presented in the tables above represent pro
forma financial information, which is the responsibility of RMI’s
board of directors and is presented for illustrative purposes
only. RMI regards normalised earnings as the appropriate basis to
evaluate business performance as it eliminates the impact of non-
recurring items and accounting anomalies. Because of its nature,
the pro forma financial information may not fairly present RMI’s
financial position, changes in equity, results of operations or
cash flows. An assurance report on the normalised earnings for the
year ended 30 June 2018 as presented above will be obtained in due
course. This information has not been reviewed and reported on by
the external auditors of RMI.
