  1. 1. Ububele IR Leaflet_ENG_V2_27March_MM 3. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND ACCOUNTING POLICIES The condensed unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in terms of IAS 34 – Interim Financial Reporting, the South African Companies Act, as amended, and the JSE’s Listings Requirements and should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2012, which have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Reporting Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council. The accounting policies applied in the preparation of the interim consolidated financial statements are consistent with those used in the previous year, as described in those annual financial statements. 5. The statement of comprehensive income, as at 30 June 2012 and 31 December 2011, has been restated for the reclassification of commission paid between cost of sales and operating expenses. This resulted in an increase in cost of sales of R54 399 130 (30 June 2012) and R36 366 674 (31 December 2011), with a corresponding decrease in operating expenses. This reclassification was done in order to provide increased disclosure and because the directors felt that it gave a better reflection of the classification of expenses. There has been no impact on profit, statement of financial position, statement of changes in equity or statement of cash flows. The statement of financial position as at 30 June 2012, 31 December 2011 and 31 December 2010, has been restated for the reclassification of distributions retained from agents from loans payable to trade and other payables. This resulted in an increase in trade and other payables of R23 079 514 (30 June 2012), R14 602 390 (31 December 2011) and R14 890 010 (31 December 2010), with a corresponding decrease in loans payable. This reclassification was done in order to provide increased disclosure and because the directors felt that it gave a better reflection of the classification of amounts payable. There has been no impact on profit, statement of comprehensive income or statement of changes in equity. 4. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND NON-CURRENT ASSETS HELD-FOR-SALE During the period under review, the company disposed of its equity share and claims in UDP. The disposal forms part of the company’s strategy to disinvest in the short to medium term from the food sector and divert all of its available resources and effort into the agricultural and services sectors. Ububele believes that the emphasis on food security and the current high agricultural commodity prices makes the agricultural sector very lucrative. Included in other income is a profit on sale of shares of R2 211 511. In the December 2011 interim period, the group decided to discontinue its fruit and vegetable operations in Cape Town, Just Fruit & Veg. So Gourmet was also liquidated during the period. The assets that were disposed of are included in the comparatives below. 31 December 31 December 2012 2011 R R Profit and loss Revenue Expenses Impairment of intangible assets Tax 42 198 581 59 611 712 (42 239 954) (64 763 517) – (23 853 820) – (369 428) (41 374) (29 375 053) 6.

PRIOR PERIOD ERRORS As reported in the annual report for the period ended 30 June 2012, it came to the directors’ attention that the purchase consideration for the Erintrade acquisition in the 2010 financial year was incorrectly calculated. The purchase consideration was based on an average earnings after tax for 2009 and 2010 financial years of Erintrade and an average listed price/earnings ratio of Ububele for the 2010 financial year. As Ububele was not yet listed at the time of the final calculation and no listed average price/earnings ratio was available, the seller and purchaser agreed to an average earnings and price/earnings ratio for the period and amended the contract accordingly. This resulted in an increase of R8.2 million to the purchase consideration and a similar increase to the goodwill relating to the purchase of Erintrade in terms of IFRS 3. December 2010 and 2011 interim periods. This error resulted in goodwill and loans from shareholders being understated by R8 210 351 in the The additional goodwill has been allocated to the Agricultural division cash-generating unit and, based on value-in-use calculations in terms of IAS 36, does not require any impairment. 10. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS There have been no events of a material nature, that in our opinion require further disclosure, after the date of approval of these abridged unaudited interim consolidated financial statements. 11. FUTURE PROSPECTS We believe that scientific farming is the only solution to the world’s growing demand for food. Through our exciting agro-chemical and biological product and service range, combined with our new investment in water management and irrigation, we are well positioned to assist our farmers to be more competitive and sustainable for the future. Ububele will continue to invest into scientific products in the future, whether by acquisition or organically, to grow our business even further.

The agricultural season was characterised by a big shift in product mix and sales, due to the monsoon rains arriving late in South Africa from Central Africa. These rains normally start in October and end in March the following year. This season, however, the monsoon rains only arrived in South Africa in December. These rains led to severe storms during January in Gauteng, eastern parts of North West Province, eastern Free State, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal. This rainfall shift meant that a big portion of the sales moved from the October to January period, to the period December to March. The most recent indications of the USA drought show that the impact is severe and therefore leads to much higher world and local maize and wheat prices. In South Africa, the real gross income from grain increased by 6.3% in 2012 and a further 13% in 2013. Beyond 2013, the growth rate is expected to be stagnant as local prices in real terms are expected to remain flat. In 2012, South Africa will reach its highest area under production of field crops since 2004 by expanding production by almost 300 000 ha on the back of increases in commodity prices and the drought in the USA. Considering the challenges that we face in food security, most farmers rely on innovation in all the fields of agricultural sciences to offer solutions in the ever demanding productivity cycle. One key area where we believe there exists a massive need is the monitoring, analysis and dissemination of accurate field level climate data. Understanding the effect of climate today, as well as the future impact of changing climate conditions on our production systems, will be vital to ensure that our farmers remain competitive. Ububele Agri Science, through its Enviro Crop Protection business, is investing in climate monitoring systems (weather stations) in our key regions where we operate and aim to add this technical innovation to our current service and advice to our clients. Our in-flight catering company, Flamingo In-Flight Services (previously Ububele Alpine In-Flight), re-branded in October 2012. With the opening of the new state-of-the-art kitchen at Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek, our staff uniforms, delivery vehicles, internal and external building signage, etc was re-branded with the new Flamingo brand. The continuous focus on better inventory control paid off, and the inventory levels were lower than comparative periods, even though sales increased. Save for the strategic investment in our airline catering company, the group finalised the closing down of the high-risk, low-margin food division during the period under review. We look forward to focusing our resources and expertise to grow and expand our agricultural division in the years to come. Ububele started the process of implementing Sage X3 in some of its divisions during the period. The increased accuracy of information promises to be of great benefit to the group going forward. 2 COMMENTARY ON RESULTS It has been six months now since Ububele decided to primarily exit from the food sector and focus all of its energy on agriculture. This strategic decision paid off, in that it moved the company from a loss-making position for the prior six-month period, to a profitable turnaround of more than 130%. During the period we increased our sales by more than 13%, our attributable profit by more than 120% and, very importantly, our cash generated from operations increased by more than 190% from R13 million to R37 million. Ububele’s turnover from continuing operations increased by 13% from the comparative prior period. Turnover in our Agri division increased by 12%, while turnover in the Food division increased by 21%. Gross profit for the period decreased by 7%. The reason for this seemingly downward trend, is the fact that the monsoon rains arrived later in Southern Africa than normal. Early-season sales of herbicides and insecticides occur at lower margins than the sales later in the season, leading to lower than average margins for the first six months of the year. Margins also remain under pressure, as farmers are price sensitive after a very dry season in 2011/2012. Included in other income, is a profit on sale of investment of R2,211,411 as a result of the sale of shares in UDP on 30 November 2012. Operating profit decreased by 24%, and operating expenses were 8% higher than that of the comparative period. Finance costs increased significantly due to the term loan for the acquisition of Enviro Crop Protection and higher interest rates. Due to the cyclical nature of our business, both current assets and current liabilities are significantly higher at end December, which is in the middle of our high season, than at year-end. The decrease in property, plant and equipment is mostly due to the sale of UDP. At the effective date, the property, plant and equipment of UDP had a book value of R13.8 million. Development costs for registrations of R1.8 million were capitalised during the period and computer software of R4.4 million was capitalised. Trade and other receivables increased by 13% from the previous six-month period. At period-end, more than 60% of our debtors were 30 days and younger. The group gives 90-day terms in certain instances in the agri division, and our debtors book is insured by Coface. Inventory levels were 8% lower, the effect of our consistent efforts to reduce the levels of stock. Included in non-current interest-bearing borrowings, is a building loan from Bank Windhoek of R6.8 million to finance the new kitchen facilities at Hosea Kutako International Airport.
