The core business expertise is the ability to source and provide local, regional and global 
industrial consumers with the required commodity over its four distinct business segments. 
The Group herewith announces its unreviewed consolidated financial results for the six months 
ended 31 August 2021.

                                                            2021           2020         % Change

We are very pleased with the interim results and the performance we have continued to produce since 
coming out of lockdown level 5 nearly 17 months ago in early May 2020. Quite simply, the performance 
over this period has been the most consistent and robust we have ever experienced. This while still 
operating under a protracted State of Disaster and various levels of lockdown. The Group's 
acquisition and diversification strategy over the previous 5 years has played a significant role 
in achieving sustainability and, despite the unfortunate advent of the Covid-19 pandemic in late 
2019 which placed us under severe pressure in the first half last year, Insimbi has weathered the 
"storm" with aplomb and our results over the last 12 months, including these interim results, attest 
to that.

Our target industries and markets all seemed to have the "wind in their sails" and our core 
operations have performed well despite challenges in some segments. Volumes and revenues are back 
to, and even exceeding, pre-Covid-19 levels and our products are in demand both locally and for 

The local economy does seem to be evidencing some growth, but implementation of stimulus initiatives 
remains slow. We have noticed a level of resilience amongst South African citizens and businesses 
that is quite frankly, extraordinary, but we are also starting to see an increase in the demise and 
closure of some business operations that can simply just not keep operating, and the impact on 
unemployment is a matter of statistical fact. One can only have faith that our Government is taking 
the necessary steps to improve the roll-out of the stimulus and support that our economy needs to 
grow at a pace to reverse the damage done over the last decade, including the impact of Covid-19.

In conclusion, we believe we are through the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic but there is no doubt 
that there will be new and different challenges in our future. However, we are confident that our 
interim results and our rolling 12 month earnings are clear evidence of the potential and 
resilience of Insimbi, even under the most adverse of conditions.
