SHORT-FORM ANNOUNCEMENT: UNAUDITED INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE 
SIX MONTHS ENDED 31 JANUARY 2021


 “Our business, while smaller from a revenue perspective due to the strategic disposal of non-core assets
 and exit of under-performing businesses, is now a more sustainable business delivering better quality of
 earnings. We have seen a significant reduction in one-off costs and are confident that our legacy issues are
 now under control. The local and global economy remains constrained as we have seen the negative impact
 on some of our clients. However, we have also seen increased cloud uptake and spend on automation and
 application development in line with global trends since the beginning of the pandemic. Over the coming
 months, our focus will be on deleveraging, enhancing margins and remaining antifragile.” Stephen van
 Coller, CEO
