(“Implats” or “the Group”)
TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2017
Shareholders are advised that Implats’ headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the year ended 30 June 2017
is expected to be a loss of between 125 and 150 cents per share compared to the year ended 30 June 2016
HEPS of 12 cents.
Basic earnings per share (EPS) is expected to be a loss of between 1 030 and 1 235 cents per share compared
to the year ended 30 June 2016 EPS loss of 10 cents.
The difference between EPS and HEPS for the year ended 30 June 2017 is due to the impairment of a royalty
prepayment at year end.
The major reason for the decline in HEPS from the comparative period is that the prior year gross profit
declined to a gross loss in the current year. In addition, the income tax credit was significantly negatively
affected by both an increase in additional profits tax for Zimplats in the current year and a non-recurring tax
credit on a bad debt in the prior year.
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 reviewed financial results for the period ended 30 June 2017
will be released on 14 September 2017.
