Shareholders are advised that Implats? headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the half year ended 31
December 2015 is expected to be between 50 and 59 cents which is between 20% and 10% lower than that

Basic earnings per share (EPS) are expected to be between 29 and 35 cents which is between 30% and 15%
lower than the previous comparable period, being the half year ended 31 December 2014 (EPS of 41 cents).
The difference between EPS and HEPS for the six months to December 2015 is primarily due to the
impairment of the 12 Shaft mechanised section, which, as announced in September 2015, was closed in

previous comparable period ended 31 December 2014.
