The above figures are consolidated earnings estimates based on K-IFRS.

|(in billion Rands)||2013.1Q||2012.2Q|
|Sales||R 465,7847||R 419,356|
|Operating profit||R 77,3518||R 56,9126|
Disclosure regulations in South Korea do not allow earnings guidance to be provided as a range, therefore the official disclosure was made based on the median value as stated above.
The guidance is provided ahead of the full announcement of quarterly earnings results for the convenience of investors and media, before the external audit on the financial results of the headquarters, subsidiaries and affiliates is completed. Therefore, the above estimate may differ from the actual results.
The full earnings for the second quarter will be disclosed following the Board of Directors’ approval of the financial statements and quarterly reports.
