Vunani's performance for the 6 months period to 31 August 2019 was significantly affected by a decline in the performance
of the commodities trading segment.The commodities trading business encountered disruptions at its main operating site
due to community unrest during the period under review. The disruption resulted in an 80% decrease in production when
compared to the prior period, which significantly reduced revenue and profitability. Vunani generated total profit for
the period of R18.9 million (2018: R29.2 million), while total profit attributable to equity holders of the company amounted
to R17.4 million (2018: R25.2 million).
The group's reporting segments include fund management, asset administration, investment banking (advisory services and
institutional securities broking) and private equity (other investments and commodities trading).
