SHORT-FORM ANNOUNCEMENT: REVIEWED PROVISIONAL CONDENSED
CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2020
1. SALIENT FEATURES
The highly challenging trading conditions experienced during the second half of the financial
year was as a result of load shedding, the COVID-19 pandemic and the related lockdowns.
The COVID-19 lockdown, despite the gradual easing of restrictions, has had an
unprecedented negative impact on the Group. All divisions have been affected to varying
degrees and the demand for our products and services has been reset downwards, which we
believe will not be a temporary shift.
Revenue from continuing operations decreased by 4.7% to R2,209.3 million, from R2,319.2
million* in the prior corresponding period.
Trading Performance (defined as profit/(loss) before interest and tax after adding back
depreciation, amortisation, straight lining of leases in the prior year, share-based payment
expenses and other gains/(losses)) from continuing operations increased by 11.7% to R223.6
million from R200.2 million* in the prior corresponding period.
Headline loss per share increased by 113.1% to 163.21 cents per share, from 76.60 cents per
share in the prior corresponding period.
Loss per share increased by 18.8% to 253.18 cents per share, from 213.07 cents per share
in the prior corresponding period.
Net asset value per share decreased by 27.4% to 644.49 cents per share, from 887.37 cents
per share in the prior corresponding period.
No dividends were declared for the year ended 30 June 2020, nor for the prior corresponding
Total Trading Performance of the Group decreased by 37.1% to R261.3 million from R415.8
million in the prior comparative period. The Group also incurred a number of significant other
costs/losses during the year which mostly comprised the following:
