Shareholders are advised that the financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been
reviewed or reported on by the Group's auditors. Cashbuild's audited results for the year ended 27 June 2021
are expected to be released on SENS on or about Wednesday, 1 September 2021.


Impact of civil unrest and the ongoing pandemic

The violent protests and looting of mid-July, mainly in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal negatively impacted
Cashbuild with a total of 36 stores (32 Cashbuild and 4 P&L Hardware stores) being damaged and looted.

One affected store has already been repaired and is currently trading. Cashbuild has initiated the process of
assessing the damages and working with insurers in obtaining approvals for the rebuilding, restoring and
restocking of the affected stores. The situation is continuously monitored and preventative measures taken to
ensure the safety of our staff.
