Shareholders are advised that Impala Platinum Holdings Limited"s headline
earnings per share for the year ended 30 June 2006 are expected to be
between 35% and 40% higher than for the previous comparable period, being
the year ended 30 June 2005. This is higher than that announced in the
recent production update largely as a result of a weaker Rand at the end of
the financial year.
Basic earnings per share will be between 15% and 20% lower than for the
previous comparable period, being the year ended 30 June 2005, which
benefited from the net impact of the profit from the sale of the Lonplats
shareholding and the Marula impairment charge.
The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not
been reviewed or reported on by the company"s auditors. The audited
financial results will be published on 25 August 2006.
