  1. 1. UNAUDITED STATEMENT TO SHAREHOLDERS FOR THE HALF YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2014 1 HIGHLIGHTS Financial performance 2014 2013 2012 US$’000 US$’000 US$’000 Income 41,908 38,948 34,624 Profit before tax 4,551 3,572 1,435 Cash generated from operations 6,357 6,404 6,442 Basic earnings per share (cents) 1.59 0.78 0.09 2 OVERVIEW Group basic earnings per share grew by 104% from 0.78 cents per share for the half year ended 30 June 2013 to 1.59 cents per share for the half year ended 30 June 2014. This growth in earnings was on the back of increased earnings by Zimbabwe investments which more than offset the decrease in profits from outside Zimbabwe investments. Zimbabwe investments recorded a profit after tax of $2.6 million versus a loss of $0.8 million for the corresponding period last year whilst outside Zimbabwe profit after tax fell by 77% to $0.8 million from $3.6 million for the half year ended 30 June 2013 mainly due to a decrease in fair value gains. 3 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE 3.1 Profit before tax analysis June June 2014 2013 Zimbabwe Investments US$’000 US$’000 Insurance Zimnat Life (Shareholder funds) 1,380 473 Zimnat Lion 1,066 958 Grand Reinsurance 146 (6) Minerva Risk Advisors 1,012 1,190 3,604 2,615 Hotels Cresta Zimbabwe (70) (147) Agro Chemicals (share of loss after tax) Sable Chemicals (TA share 51%) - (1,746) ZFC (TA share 22.5%) (198) (495) (198) (2,241) Total - Zimbabwe investments 3,336 227 Outside Zimbabwe Investments Insurance Botswana Insurance Company 792 4,337 Lion Assurance Company (Uganda) 479 581 1,271 4,918 Hotels Cresta Marakanelo (35% share of profits after tax) 249 425 Cresta Holding 29 135 278 560 Total - foreign investments 1,738 5,478 Zimnat Life (Policyholder funds) Profit before gross change in policy holder liabilities 2,470 1,010 Gross change in policyholder liabilities (2,461) (1,007) 9 3 Corporate costs (898) (1,147) Micro-finance, Sovereign Health and other investments 555 (989) Group profit before tax 4,551 3,572 3.2 Gross written premium June June 2014 2013 US$’000 US$’000 Zimbabwe Investments Zimnat Life (shareholder funds) 4,106 3,710 Zimnat Lion 13,542 9,901 Grand Reinsurance 3,700 2,649 21,348 16,260 Outside Zimbabwe Investments Botswana Insurance Company 18,810 16,092 Lion Assurance Company (Uganda) 5,866 4,282 24,676 20,374 Zimnat Life (policyholder funds) 3,773 3,128 Intergroup gross written premium (2,607) (811) Group gross written premium 47,190 38,951 3.3 Hotel revenue Zimbabwe Investments Cresta Zimbabwe 6,042 6,035 Outside Zimbabwe Investments Cresta Holdings 1,130 1,301 Group hotel revenue 7,172 7,336 3.4 Investment Income Interest received 1,443 752 Dividends received 565 431 Realised gain on disposal of investments 212 387 Rental Income 228 328 Fair value gains/(losses) on: • Investment property - - • Financial assets (31) 2,942 2,417 4,840 Realised investment income 2,448 1,898 Unrealised investment income (31) 2,942 2,417 4,840 3.5 Commentary 3.5.1 Zimbabwe investments (i) Insurance This business sector comprises Zimnat Lion Insurance Company, Zimnat Life Assurance Company, Grand Reinsurance and Minerva Risk Advisors.

The growth in premiums was driven mainly by increase in individual life business. • Zimnat Lion underwriting performance grew by 52% during the period under review largely due to a 37% increase in revenue and good cost control which resulted in a drop its operating expense ratio to 31% from 36% for the corresponding period last year. The increase in revenue was mainly due to growth in market share. • GrandRe recorded an underwriting profit increase on the back of a 40% growth in premiums and a 17% decrease in costs during the period under review. b) Operating profit Minerva operating profits increased by 13% during the half year ended 30 June 2014. This was due to an 11% increase in revenues driven largely by increased business by Minerva Reinsurance. c) Investment income Investment income dropped by 38% when compared to the same period last year largely due to tepid performance on the Zimbabwe investment market during the period under review. (ii) Hotels This business sector comprises Cresta Zimbabwe June June 2014 2013 US$’000 US$’000 Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization 589 334 Cresta Sprayview pre-opening costs - (124) Depreciation (335) (149) Finance costs (324) (208) De-recognition cost on refurbishment - - Loss before tax (70) (147) Cash generated from operations 704 331 Revenue per available room ($) 41 39 Average room rate ($) 73 88 Cresta Zimbabwe incurred a loss before tax of $0.07 million compared to a loss of $0.14 million for the same period last year. The company continued to suffer from an increased “price war” within the hotel industry but, managed to reduce its loss position due to cost reduction initiatives that were implemented during the period. (iii) Agrochemicals This business sector comprises Sable Chemicals, the sole producer of Ammonium Nitrate in Zimbabwe, and Zimbabwe Fertilizer Company (“ZFC”). June June 2014 2013 US$’000 US$’000 Loss after tax ZFC (880) (2,250) Sable Chemicals - (3,424) (880) (5,674) TA share of profit of associate ZFC (22% effective interest) (198) (495) Sable Chemicals (51% effective interest) - (1,746) (198) (2,241) (a) ZFC The Company’s loss position decreased during the period under review largely due to a reduction in bad debts provisions. (b) Sable As reported in the Statement to Shareholders for the year ended 31 December 2013 published on 30 April 2014, the Group impaired its investment in Sable due to the uncertainty over future returns from this investment. Whilst significant progress has been made in the negotiations for a viable tariff, the company was not receiving sufficient power supply in order to operate at profitable levels. In light of this, returns to be realised from Sable are still uncertain and the investment in this company remained impaired as at 30 June 2014. 3.5.2 Outside Zimbabwe investments (i) Insurance This business sector comprises Botswana Insurance Company, which is the largest underwriter of short-term insurance in Botswana, and Lion Assurance Company of Uganda.

  2. 2. UNAUDITED STATEMENT TO SHAREHOLDERS FOR THE HALF YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2014 June June 2014 2013 Combined ratio Botswana Insurance Company 86% 83% Lion Assurance Company (Uganda) 87% 94% a) Underwriting performance • Botswana Insurance Company’s underwriting profits declined during the period under review mainly due to the continued loss of market share. The company has since been restructured and a slow recovery is anticipated for the remainder of the year. • Lion Assurance Company, Uganda, recorded a drop in underwriting performance during the period under re view largely due to an increase in its claims ratio from 27% for the half year ended 30 June 2013 to 35% for the period under review and write-backs of non-perfoming debtors. b) Investment income The reduction in investment income was due to unrealised losses on equities arising from the under performance of stocks on the regional stock exchanges. (ii) Hotels This business sector comprises Cresta Marakanelo and Cresta Holdings which provide hotel services in Botswana and Zambia. June June 2014 2013 US$’000 US$’000 Cresta Marakanelo Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation 2,619 2,984 Depreciation (236) (326) Finance costs (96) (167) IAS 17 leasing costs (1,284) (1,098) Income tax expense (293) (179) Profit after tax 710 1,214 Cresta Marakanelo – share of profits (35% effective interest) 249 425 Cresta Holdings – profit before tax 29 135 278 560 Cash generated from operations Cresta Marakanelo 2,687 1,879 Cresta Holdings 76 (409) 2,763 1,470 Revenue per available room ($) 44 49 Average room rate ($) 74 89 Cresta Marakanelo’s performance declined during the period under review when compared to the half year ended 30 June 2013. This was mainly due to losses incured by Cresta Golfview (Zambia) which outweighed the 6% growth in operating profits achieved by the Botswana hotels. 4 FINANCIAL POSITION 4.1 Net Asset Value (NAV) Insurance Hotels Total NAV Agro- IFRS Group before chemicals Consolidation NAV Agro- Adjustments chemicals US$’000 US$’000 US$’000 US$’000 US$’000 US$’000 30 June 2014 Zimbabwe Investments 21,066 9,380 30,446 3,083 (7,116) 26,413 Outside Zimbabwe investments 26,421 11,977 38,398 - 960 39,358 Group 47,487 21,357 68,844 3,083 (6,156) 65,771 NAV attributable to parent company 32,899 21,357 54,256 3,083 (6,156) 51,183 31 December 2013 Zimbabwe Investments 18,573 9,456 28,029 3,281 (7,324) 23,986 Outside Zimbabwe investments 26,618 10,478 37,096 - (180) 36,916 Group 45,191 19,934 65,125 3,281 (7,504) 60,902 NAV attributable to parent company 32,057 19,934 51,991 3,281 (7,504) 47,768 The Group’s net asset value position increased by $5 million from $60.9 million at 31 December 2013 to $65,9 million at 30 June 2014 due to profits for the year ($3.4 million) and acquisition of an additional stake in Minerva ($2 million). 4.2 Cash and bank balances 30 June 30 Dec 2014 2013 US$’000 US$’000 Zimbabwe Investments 5,927 4,029 Outside Zimbabwe investments 16,727 12,771 Group 22,654 16,800 Cash generated from operations by the Group remained static at $6.4 million. After accounting for cash utilized in financing activities, the Group’s cash balances increased from $16.8 million at 31 December 2013 to $22.7 million at 30 June 2014. 4.3 Borrowings Borrowings decreased from $8 million as at 31 December 2013 to $7, 6 million at 30 June 2014. The decrease was due to loan repayments by Cresta Zimbabwe. 5 OUTLOOK 5.1 Zimbabwe investments (i) Insurance • Given the momentum experienced in H1 2014, all Zimbabwe insurance companies are expected to record growth in premiums and underwriting profit in excess of those recorded in FY 2013. • Investment income growth is expected to be flat given the current conditions prevailing in the Zimbabwean investment market. • After a difficult 2013, profits at Minerva are expected to continue to grow for the remainder of the financial year. (ii) Hotels • The tough trading conditions at the Group’s city hotels are expected to continue into H2 2014. Revpars are forecast to be in line with those achieved in H1 2014 and the group will continue to focus on cost reduction so as to ensure that profits remain above breakeven level. • Any upturn in economic activity will have a corresponding effect on occupancies and profits at this division. (iii) Agrochemicals • The Group is optimistic that a viable electricity tariff for Sable will be finalized during H2 2014. In addition it is anticipated that normal power supplies will be restored in Q3. These will enble the company to complete refurbishment of the plant so as to return the company to its installed capacity. • As part of its strategy to move away from electricity usage, Sable is currently engaged in investigations to explore the use of Coal Bed Methane as an alternative feedstock in the manufacture of Hydrogen. This study will compliment earlier feasibility studies on coal gasification. It is anticipated that the choice of technology will be finalized after completion of this investigation so that migration to a new technology can be done expeditiously. 5.2 Outside of Zimbabwe investments (i) Insurance • Whilst the restructuring changes have already been implemented at BIC, these are only likely to be fully felt during the 2015 financial year. Consequently, underwriting profits for 2014 are anticipated to be below those achieved in 2013. • During the year, BIC has made an additional investment of US$1,8million in a new associate, Continental Reinsurance Botswana (Pty) Limited, a start-up reinsurance business that is due to commence operations in September 2014. Continental Reinsurance Botswana (Pty) Limited is majority owned by Continental Reinsurance Plc, who will assume management responsibility. • BIC has concluded an agreement with a fellow short term insurer in Botswana, BHIL Sure, to purchase their short term insurance book for an amount of Pula 8 million. This transaction awaits regulatory approval. This will add an additional annual premium of approximately Pula 25 million. • At LAC, market share growth is expected to continue and given current claims levels, underwriting profits are forecast to increase over the 2013 financial year. (ii) Hotels • Despite a slow start to financial year, occupancies are forecast to improve and budgeted growth levels are likely to be achieved. • Construction of a new hotel and conference centre in Botswana is awaiting regulatory and municipal approvals. Construction is forecast to commence during the course of Q3 in 2014 UNAUDITED GROUP INCOME STATEMENT FOR THE HALF YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2014 30 June 30 June 2014 2013 US$’000 US$’000 Income Net earned premium 22,140 21,852 Gross written premium 47,190 38,951 Change in unearned premium reserve (11,379) (2,787) Insurance premiums ceded to reinsurers (13,671) (14,312) Investment income 2,417 4,840 Realised 2,448 1,898 Unrealised (31) 2,942 Hotel revenues 7,172 7,336 Fees, commission and other income 10,179 4,920 Total Income 41,908 38,948 Expenses Net claims (11,436) (13,060) Hotel cost of sales (2,418) (2,165) Expenses for acquisition of insurance contracts (6,627) (4,740) Operating and administrative expenses (16,672) (14,087) Total expenses (37,153) (34,052) Profit before interest and income tax 4,755 4,896 Finance costs (368) (314) Share of associates profits/(losses) 164 (1,010) Profit before income tax 4,551 3,572 Income tax expense (1,135) (809) Profit for the period 3,416 2,763 Profit attributable to: Owners of the parent 2,626 1,287 Non-controlling interests 790 1,476 3,416 2,763 DIRECTORS: S S MUTASA (NON-EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN) - G SAINSBURY* (CE0) - J VEZEY - F DANIELS - R N GORDON - B P NYAJEKA* - Z RANDEREE (*Executive)
