TRADING STATEMENT                                                               
Shareholders are advised that Implats` basic earnings per share for the full    
year ending 30 June 2008 are expected to be 115% - 125% higher than that of the 
last financial year ended 30 June 2007. Included in the basic earnings per share
is the profit on disposal of Implats` shareholdings of 8.6% in Aquarius Platinum
Limited and 20% in Aquarius Platinum (South Africa) Pty Limited.                
Headline earnings per share will be between 50% - 60% higher than the previous  
comparable period, being the year ended 30 June 2007. This is as a result of    
higher metal prices and a weaker rand.  Headline earnings for the previous      
period included the BEE compensation charge of approximately R1.8bn.
