TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2021

Murray & Roberts is a multinational engineering and construction group, targeting the
natural resources, industrial, energy, water and specialised infrastructure sectors, which
present the best opportunities for growth, diversification, and differentiation for its three
business platforms.

Implementation of the Group’s strategy over the past few years culminated in continued
order book growth and a sizeable aggregation of near orders. The current order book at
R60,7 billion is at an all-time high.

The Group has recovered from the initial impact it experienced in FY2020 from the COVID-
19 pandemic, with continuing operations returning to profitability in the year under review,
delivering earnings before interest and tax within an expected range of R530 million to R560
million (FY2020: R17 million loss).

The Group expects to report FY2021 results within the following ranges:

The headline loss per share and loss per share resulted from non-recurring extraordinary
and predominantly non-cash losses in discontinued operations.

The Group’s exposure to its promising target markets, and its strong order book from those
markets, holds the potential for meaningful earnings growth in FY2022 and in the medium
term.
