IMPLATS TRADING STATEMENT
Further to the announcement on 24 July 2014, shareholders are advised that Implats’ headline
earnings per share (HEPS) for the financial year ended 30 June 2014 is expected to be between 82
and 98 cents which is between 70 % and 75% lower than that of the financial year ended 30 June
2013 (HEPS of 330 cents). This is mainly due to the five-month industrial action experienced by the
Impala Rustenburg operations.
Basic earnings per share (EPS) are expected to be between zero and three cents which is between
98% and 100% lower than the previous comparable period, being the year ended 30 June 2013 (EPS
of 168 cents). The expected decrease in EPS is a result of the impact of the above-mentioned factor
and includes the add-back of impairments (after tax) for headline earnings calculations of
approximately R480 million.
The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and
reported on by the external auditors of Implats. The Group’s audited year-end financial results for
the period ended 30 June 2014 will be released on 28 August 2014.
