PROVISIONAL AUDITED RESULTS AND CASH DIVIDEND DECLARATION FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2021

certain markets in sub-Saharan Africa and the UK, and offers a universal set of transactional, lending, investment and insurance products 
and services.

"The level of improvement in the group's performance demonstrates the quality of FirstRand's portfolio of businesses and their ability to capitalise 
on the economic rebound that is taking place.

Normalised earnings grew 54% to R26.5 billion and the group produced R4.9 billion of economic profit. Pleasingly, pre-provision operating profit

FirstRand's ROE of 18.4% is back within the target range of 18% to 22%, which reflects its determination to quickly revert back to producing 
superior returns to shareholders."

OVERVIEW OF RESULTS



Financial performance

When interpreting the results for the year to 30 June 2021, it's important to note that the comparative period, in particular the second half of the 
year to 30 June 2020, included the first three months of the pandemic and the lockdown introduced in March 2020. This resulted in increased impairments 
and reduced volumes leading to a significantly depressed performance for that financial year. As a result of that base effect, the group's normalised 
earnings increased 54%, with this performance also reflecting the sharp rebound in economic activity levels across the jurisdictions in which the group 
operates. Pleasingly FirstRand's normalised ROE of 18.4% is back within the stated range of 18% to 22%, reflecting the underlying quality of the group's 
earnings. The group produced R4.9 billion of economic profit, or net income after cost of capital (NIACC), which is its key performance measure.

** During May 2019, a new legal entity, MotoNovo Finance Limited, was established under the Aldermore group where all new MotoNovo business since
   May 2019 has been originated (also referred to as the MotoNovo front book). In the UK operations management view, shown in the table above and 
   on pages 45 and 46 of the Analysis of results booklet, Aldermore refers to Aldermore excluding MotoNovo front book and MotoNovo refers to the 
   standalone performance of MotoNovo, which includes the front book and back book. This differs from the segment report disclosed on pages 36 to 
   43 of the Analysis of results booklet, as MotoNovo (front book) is included under Aldermore and MotoNovo (back book) is included in FCC.

In order to appropriately navigate the economic crisis brought about by the pandemic, for the year to 30 June 2021 the group anchored execution 
of its strategy to the following financial resource management (FRM) principles:

- Carefully price for financial resources.
- Appropriately provide against lending portfolios.
- Apply strict cost management.
- Further strengthen and appropriately tilt the balance sheet to the macro outlook.
- Accrete capital and net asset value (NAV) - the deployment of capital to reflect the updated cost of equity.
- Emerge from Covid-19 with limited vulnerabilities, with capital for growth.

Adherence to these principles supported the group over the year under review. Earnings recovered faster than expected, with ROE and NIACC coming 
back strongly. The group's Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio increased to 13.5% (2020: 11.5%) and the group is in a position to pay a full-year 
dividend at the bottom end of its cover range (56% payout).

The level of improvement in the group's performance reflects the quality of FirstRand's portfolio, the strength of its customer franchise and its 
ability to capitalise on the economic rebound that is taking place. The following tables provide a rolling six-month view of the group's performance 
and that of its operating businesses.

Pre-provision operating profit increased 5%, demonstrating the resilient underlying performances from FNB, RMB and Group Treasury.

FNB's pre-provision profit performance demonstrates its operational adaptability and strong franchise. As South Africa's leading digital bank, FNB 
continues to fulfil origination, account service and liability gathering digitally. Deposit growth remained strong with retail and commercial segments 
benefiting from active customer base growth.

RMB produced a resilient operating performance driven by an excellent markets and private equity performance, underpinned by sustained annuity income 
and strong average deposit growth. This was supplemented by modest private equity realisations and a principal investment realisation combined with 
lower asset impairments in that portfolio compared to the prior year.

WesBank's pre-provision operating profit declined due to lower advances and revenue, and higher costs.

UK operations delivered a lower pre-provision profit as a result of higher operating costs emanating from continued investment in platforms and
processes together with the normalisation of variable staff costs. Revenues benefited from some growth in advances.

Group Treasury's improved performance resulted from better rand and foreign exchange liquidity mismatch management compared to the disruptive 
impacts in the prior year. Other drivers included lower funding costs from the improved funding mix due to the ongoing growth in the group's 
deposit franchise, and improved asset and liability management.



Revenue and cost overview

Overall net interest income (NII) increased 3% despite the negative endowment impact resulting from the 300 bps cuts in interest rates since 
December 2019. This impact was partially offset by higher capital levels and deposit volumes, and the benefit of Group Treasury's asset and liability 
management (ALM) mitigation strategies to protect earnings. Lending NII decreased due to the decline in advances and increased competition, which 
was to some extent offset by mix change.

Net interest margin (NIM) declined 10 bps to 435 bps, driven mainly by the negative endowment impact.

Advances decreased year-on-year, due to low demand for credit as well as the group's cautious risk appetite for most of the financial year, given 
ongoing uncertainty. The deposit franchise, however, performed strongly, growing 6%.

FNB's advances contracted marginally during the year, reflecting the business's continued prudent risk appetite and lower demand given the ongoing 
impact of Covid-19 on its customer base. Rest of Africa advances reduced due to macroeconomic uncertainties and currency fluctuations. Excluding the 
currency impact, FNB rest of Africa advances declined 5% and deposits increased 9%. Across all segments, deposit growth benefited from strong momentum 
in savings and investment products. Commercial customers continued to maintain liquidity to support cash flow demands given the prevailing uncertainty.

RMB's core advances also contracted due to low levels of corporate activity and business confidence, and paydowns from clients as their liquidity 
requirements normalised compared to the Covid-19 drawdowns in the previous financial year. In addition, there was a negative impact of currency 
appreciation from the cross-border book. Deposit growth remained healthy domestically and in the rest of Africa, with some margin contraction.

WesBank advances declined 3% as the business adjusted its approach to origination given the competitive lending environment.

Advances in the UK operations increased marginally, supported by growth in vehicle asset finance (VAF), whilst the commercial and other retail books 
contracted as new lending activity was impacted by Covid-19.

Total group operational non-interest revenue (NIR) increased 3%, mainly driven by resilient growth in fee and commission, and trading income.

FNB's NIR increased 5%, benefiting from good growth in transactional volumes, up 6% year-on-year, with particularly strong volumes on the banking app (+26%).
Customer growth was robust at 5%.

The 15% decrease in insurance income was mainly due to the ongoing economic impact of the pandemic, resulting in an increase in mortality claims paid and 
provisions raised. The reduction in new business sales was as a result of a decline in credit life policies. There was good growth in all other insurance 
business lines, resulting in in-force annual premium equivalent (APE) growth of 11% and gross premiums increasing 9%.

RMB's fee and commission income grew 4%, underpinned by advisory mandates, although this was partially offset by lower structuring income. Trading activities
delivered another strong performance (+11%) supported by the fixed income desk and the commodities business.

Growth in operating expenses was contained at 3%, reflecting the continued focus on cost management across the business. It was also achieved despite ongoing
investment strategies in:

-   insurance and asset management;
-   build-out and consolidation of the domestic enterprise platform;
-   build-out of the group's footprint in the rest of Africa; and
-   process and system modernisation in the UK business.

Additional costs associated with managing employee and customer well-being on premises and in branches, and the facilitation of remote working for a 
significant proportion of employees, continue to be incurred. Overall cost growth continued to benefit from lower travel and related costs as well as 
lower cooperation agreement costs. The cost-to-income ratio improved marginally to 52.4% (2020: 52.9%).



Credit performance

As required under IFRS 9, FirstRand revised its macroeconomic forward-looking outlook, with positive revisions to key economic variables compared to the 
prior year given the rebound in the economy. Overall performing coverage reduced given this change. However, the group included an additional stress scenario 
given the ongoing uncertainty in the system resulting in only a marginal reduction in performing coverage. Non-performing loan (NPL) growth of 6% was better 
than expected, benefiting from a 35% increase in write-offs. This drove the 44% reduction in the overall impairment charge to R13.7 billion 
(2020: R24.4 billion) as analysed in the table below.

The above table also demonstrates the move in impairments on a rolling six-month view, based on movements in the balance sheet. Provisions for the six months 
to June 2020 reflect the significant impact of the negative macros. For the six months to December 2020, the performing book coverage increased despite the 
improving macro environment, largely due to judgemental out-of-model provisions recognised, given the ongoing uncertainties at that time. The provision 
release of R2.2 billion for the performing book for the six months to June 2021 was driven by the improvement in macro assumptions, relatively lower levels 
of uncertainty and the release of Covid-19-related provisions. The NPL provision release reflects the relative improvement in mix, with a larger portion 
of paying NPLs.

The next table deals with the rolling six-month change in group NPL balances. It is pleasing to see that the reduction in operational NPLs continued in 
the second half of the financial year. Collection efforts resulted in paying NPLs increasing R2.7 billion year-on-year. The UK experienced an increase 
in NPLs (+34%), which resulted in an overall increase of 6% in NPLs to 4.76% of advances (2020: 4.37%).

Overall NPL coverage increased marginally to 45.3% (2020: 43.1%), mainly driven by mix change but partially offset by a higher proportion of paying NPLs. 
Product coverage was largely maintained.

SA retail NPLs as a percentage of advances grew to 9.05% (2020: 8.44%), driven in the main by the increase in residential mortgage NPLs given the ongoing 
pressures on consumers.

SA corporate and commercial NPLs as a percentage of advances decreased marginally, benefiting mainly from the reduction in operational NPLs. However, NPLs 
relating to certain private equity exposures increased.

In the UK operations, NPLs increased to 3.16% of advances (2020: 2.18%), mainly due to the impact of lockdown restrictions and normalisation of book growth.
Aldermore and MotoNovo granted second and third payment holidays to existing clients, with third payment holidays being viewed as a default event. These 
clients were classified as stage 3/NPL. The previous ban on collateral repossessions in the UK also contributed to NPL growth.

With regard to the relief books, overall gross advances decreased from R229.6 billion to R166.4 billion, given that no further relief was extended and 
customers commenced repayments. Corporate and commercial reflected the largest decline as these counters paid off their facilities as liquidity improved. 
The proportion of the portfolio under relief was at 13% of advances at 30 June 2021 (2020: 18%).



DIVIDEND STRATEGY

For the six months to 31 December 2020, the FirstRand board repositioned the dividend cover into the bottom end of the group's target range of 1.8 to 
2.2 times, in anticipation of the expected medium-term growth in the economies in which the group operates.

The group continues to accrete capital, resulting in a healthy CET1 level, which provides sufficient capacity for growth. The board is therefore comfortable 
to maintain a dividend cover of 1.8 times for the year and considers this level of distribution to be appropriate and sustainable over the medium term.



PROSPECTS

Looking forward, in South Africa the group expects a modest credit cycle to emerge, mainly driven by recovery in consumer and corporate incomes, a gradual 
lift in business and consumer confidence and pent-up private sector demand. These trends will underpin some advances growth, with a slowdown in deposit growth
as consumers draw down on precautionary savings. Advances growth will be driven by the retail portfolios with commercial advances likely to follow thereafter. 
Corporate advances growth is expected to remain weak given low demand and excess capacity. Recent momentum in transactional activity is expected to grow as 
the economy continues to open up.

Whilst a fourth domestic Covid-19 wave remains probable towards the end of the 2021 calendar year, the severity of this wave is expected to be reduced given 
the levels of vaccination rates in the vulnerable age groups.

The group also sees modest improvement in the rest of Africa portfolio as many of the jurisdictions where it operates will continue to benefit from the 
commodity cycle.

The rebound in the UK economy is expected to be maintained, although the pace of the sector-led recovery could slow. NPLs may continue to build as the 
government withdraws its various stimulus packages which have softened the impact for many UK households. This benefited the UK operations' current year 
performance. The business remains appropriately provided, however, absolute growth in earnings will likely be constrained for the next twelve months.

The group previously indicated that it expected to reach peak earnings during the 2023 financial year. However, the speed, extent and breadth of the 
rebound has exceeded expectations and the resultant momentum has carried into the new financial year.

Consequently, FirstRand expects peak earnings to be achieved earlier than previously thought, particularly given that the group produced its highest 
ever level of six-month earnings in the second half of the 2021 financial year. The ROE is expected to remain in the stated range of 18% to 22% and 
capital generation is likely to exceed demand in the 2022 financial year.

The group further expects to revert back to its long-term target of delivering real growth in earnings (defined as real GDP plus CPI).
