Further Trading Statement

(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)
(Registration number: 2006/011359/06)
Share code: CSG
ISIN: ZAE000184438
(“CSG” or the “the Company”)


In terms of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, a listed company is required to publish a trading
statement as soon as it becomes reasonably certain that the financial results for the next period to be
reported on will differ by 20% or more from the financial results for the previous corresponding period.

Shareholders of CSG are referred to the initial trading statement issued on 22 June 2021 and are hereby
advised that a reasonable degree of certainty exists that for the year ended 31 March 2021:

    •   Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) will be between 8.56 cents and 10.12 cents representing an
        improvement of more than 100% as compared to the basic loss of 15.52 cents per share
        reported for the prior year; and

    •   Headline earnings per share (“HEPS”) will be between 2.19 cents and 3.05 cents representing
        an improvement of more than 100%, as compared to the headline loss per share of 8.69 cents
        reported for the prior year.

The EPS improvement was mainly due to the security division’s aggressive turnaround plan, the group’s
cost-cutting initiatives implemented during lockdown, together with assistance received from
government such as employee tax incentives (ETI) and Skills Development Levy (SDL) payment
holidays. The EPS further increased due to the sale of the 7Arrows business and the related recognition
of a profit on sale of business. A profit on sale of business was recorded due to the goodwill and
intangibles written off in prior years.

HEPS increased due to the same reasons noted above under EPS, with the biggest exception that the
profit on sale of business has been excluded from HEPS.

The financial information on which this trading statement is based, has not been reviewed or reported
on by the Company´s external auditors. The reviewed results for the year ended 31 March 2021 is
expected to be published on or about 30 June 2021.
