In terms of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited relating to trading statements, a listed company

prior period.

In the previous trading statement released on 11 August 2021, the Group indicated that the:

    -   Earnings per share (“EPS”) for the 6 months ending 30 June 2021 (“current period”) in ZAR
        terms was expected to increase by 77,6% to 87,6% to between 94,70 and 100,00 cents per
        share and the headlines earnings per share (“HEPS”) for the current period was expected to
        be between 59,2% and 69,2% higher to between 84,90 and 90,20 cents per share as
        reported in ZAR; and

    -   EPS for the current period in USD terms was expected to increase by 104.4% to 114.4% to
        between 6.50 and 6.90 cents per share and the HEPS for the current period was expected to
        be between 82.5% and 92.5% higher to between 5.80 and 6.20 cents per share for the

The Group now has more reasonable certainty that the:

    -   EPS in ZAR terms is expected to increase by 61,1% to 66,1% to between 85,90 and 88,50
        cents per share for the current period; and
    -   EPS in USD terms is expected to increase by 85.0% to 90.0% to between 5.90 and 6.10
        cents per share for the current period.
