SENS Sekunjalo rejects the scurrilous attempt by Times Media
Group, Sunday Times to smear its reputation and good name

Chief Executive Officer of Sekunjalo Investments Limited, Mr
Khalid Abdulla said “the latest attempt by the Sunday Times is a
cheap shot aimed at Sekunjalo”. It is well known that Premier
Fishing SA (Pty) Ltd (Premier Fishing) is in discussion with the
Competition Commission around an investigation into the small
pelagic industry and this is yet another desperate attempt by
the Sunday Times to portray Premier Fishing in a bad light.

Sekunjalo has been subjected to defamatory attacks by the Times
Media Group (TMG) over the last few months since Sekunjalo
Holdings acquired the competitor to TMG, Independent News Media
South Africa (INMSA). TMG Newspapers and online has published
almost 60 articles on Sekunjalo since its acquisition of INMSA.
In almost all instances the articles are defamatory and an
attempt to paint a negative picture of Sekunjalo in the eyes of
the public, readers and advertisers. This shameful attempt
by Sunday Times and TMG's associated newspapers and online sites
is a desperate attempt to undermine INMSA in the market place.

Premier Fishing and Sekunjalo are very hesitant to comment as we
respect the authority of the Competition Commission during this
process. However, Sekunjalo has been forced to defend its public
reputation due to the malicious campaign by the Sunday Times to
defame the company. This is the second time in as many months
that the Sunday Times completely disregards and disrespects
regulatory authorities and their process by publishing
information which is not complete and uses it to create the
impression that the company has committed a transgression.

The complaint against Oceana, (the largest industry player in
small pelagics) and smaller fishing companies such as Premier
Fishing relates to the use by the entire industry of the
application of a raw fish formula to determine the remuneration
of vessel owners, skippers and crew. It should be noted, that
the process of remunerating skippers, crew and boat owners was
prevalent across the pelagic industry for more than 40 years,
pre-existing the acquisition of Premier Fishing by Sekunjalo
Investments Ltd.

The matter involving Premier Fishing is much narrower in scope
than the matter relating to all the other fishing companies and
in respect of which Oceana concluded a consent order with the
Competition Commission. The alleged contraventions of the
Competition Act are technical in nature and not typical of
blatant collusive activity and we reserve our rights in this
matter.

Mr Abdulla referred the media to a press statement issued by
Oceana when they signed a consent agreement with the Competition
Commission, CEO Francois Kuttel said, “The bulk of the penalty
relates to open negotiations which were in place for the purpose
of compensating skippers, crew, and some private boat owners in
the small pelagic industry for over four decades. Whilst it was
technically a contravention of the Competition Act, we believed
this activity was covered by the exemption relating to
collective bargaining.”

Premier Fishing made it very clear that it was one of the few
fishing companies that tried to change the collective bargaining
process but it was rejected by the skippers and crew. Premier
Fishing has provided the Competition Commission with this record
of interaction.

The Sunday Times has deliberately tried to misinform the public
and create the impression that the technical contravention of
the Act was recent. The facts are however, Premier Fishing
exited the collective bargaining arrangements after the sale of
its cannery and fish meal plant during 2006. The complaints
against it, which relate to its canning operations, are
therefore historic complaints. Moreover, it was not a
significant competitor in the market during the relevant times.

Whilst Premier Fishing has been engaged in a settlement
negotiation with the Competition Commission to deal with this
matter, taking into account the legal costs and management time,
Premier Fishing does not believe that it has been guilty of
contravening the Competition Act in relation to any matter
involving the pelagic industry.

As far as Premier Fishing is aware, the Competition Commission
has not yet referred the matter against Premier Fishing to the
Tribunal for hearing and any potential financial outcome has
already been accounted for previously by the Company.
We reiterate, Sekunjalo Investments Ltd and its subsidiaries are
fully compliant with the legal, ethical and corporate governance
framework in South Africa and we emphatically reject any attempt
to suggest that it or any of its subsidiary companies have been
involved in blatant collusive practices.

Premier Fishing and Sekunjalo will not issue any further comment
until the matter is resolved with the Competition Commission and
ask people to respect regulatory processes in this country.

It is clear that Times Media Group and its publications have no
regard for regulatory institutions and due processes. We are not
surprised.

SEKUNJALO DELIVERS STRONG PROFITS AND SOLID INVESTMENT VALUE

Highlights
Revenue increased by 25% from R455m to R569m.
Headline earnings increased by 63% from R18m to R30m.
NAV per share increased by 7% from 90.49c to 96.50c.
Cash generation from operations consistent at R56m sustainable
level.

The continued organic growth of underlying assets, substantial
growth in investment performance and new contracts obtained in
operating businesses, resulted in diversified investment group
Sekunjalo Investments Limited (“SIL”), delivering strong
financial results for the financial year ending 31 August 2013.

Sekunjalo today reported that its Net Asset Value, the most
important measure of performance in an investment holding
company, grew to 96.50c per share (previously 90.49c per share).
The Group’s tangible Net Asset Value grew by 7% to 86.26 per
share. The company’s underlying NAV is 154.20c per share at year
end.

Sekunjalo’s underlying operations shows consistent sustainable
earnings with profit before tax at R58m (compared to R48m last
year), thanks to the solid performances from its two main
operating subsidiaries, Sekunjalo Technology Solutions Group and
Premier Fishing.

SIL, as an investment holding company, has set its objective to
increase its net asset value (NAV) by improving operational
performance of its underlying businesses and investments and has
done so successfully for the year under review.

The Executive Chairman of Sekunjalo Investments Limited, Dr
Iqbal Survé said he is delighted by the performance of the
listed Sekunjalo Investment Limited Group. He said that the
strategies implemented by the board are beginning to bear fruit
and the strong growth in earnings and NAV as well as the good
cash flows indicates that the Group is beginning to generate
significant value for its shareholders.

Dr Survé has indicated that he is delighted that the fishing and
technology and communications subsidiaries, as well as the
investments in Pioneer Foods and British Telecom all continue to
perform strongly.

Sekunjalo’s strategy of growing NAV by investing its surplus
capital in its underlying businesses is reaping the benefits of
this approach and the board and the company is looking forward
to a strong performance in the years ahead.

Group revenue has grown by 25% from the prior year due to the
strong operational performance of its underlying businesses.
The Group’s gross profit percentage is in line with expectations
with its technology solutions and fishing operations achieving
efficient performances which are shown in their gross margins
and results.

Profit before taxation for the year has increased significantly
to R58m as compared to the prior period year of R48m, driven
mainly by the subsidiaries organic growth and strategies
implemented over the past few years.

Earnings and headline earnings per share have increased by 66%
and 63% respectively as a result of the operational performance
of the subsidiaries.

The Group’s asset base has increased by R48m to R903m from R855m
as compared to the prior year.

Sekunjalo said that this performance has resulted in sustainable
cash generation from operations which compares well with the
prior year.

Sekunjalo CEO, Khalid Abdulla said that “The R42m generated in
net operational cash flow was consistent, and underpinned the
quality and sustainability of Sekunjalo’s strong earnings flow”.

Abdulla said that due to the re-investment into the organic
growth of the Information Technology Communication Group
(Sekunjalo TSG), the division is performing in line with
expectation with operating profits of R35m for the year. This
was achieved through the implementation and roll out of the long
term contracts secured during the prior financial years.

Sekunjalo TSG’s operations continue to perform well with revenue
from operations increasing by 27% from R192m compared to R152m
during the prior year. The Information Technology Communication
Group also performed above target and generated a positive cash
flow.

Premier Fishing generated an operating profit from operations
for the year under review. Premier Fishing has steadily
maintained its performance with the major contribution coming
from the south coast and west coast rock lobster divisions.


The Group’s non-controlling interests in large multinational
companies, British Telecom Communication Services South Africa
and Pioneer Foods Group have also strengthened the Group’s
financial position.

The ICT and fishing divisions have built a strong platform for
further organic growth and the Group is well positioned to
increase its investments further through acquisition.

Sekunjalo Media owns the rights of and manages the Cape Town
International Jazz Festival. The Cape Town International Jazz
Festival continues to bear fruit and contributes greatly to the
gross domestic product of the Western Cape and national economy
of R475m and R800m respectively.

Looking ahead, Abdulla says, “Sekunjalo is on a firm footing and
moving towards a position where directors can focus their minds
on further expansion, both operationally and through strategic
investments”.

Abdulla says, "Overall, Sekunjalo is in a much stronger
position. Our balance sheet is strong, our cash flow is
improving and prospects for our mainstay businesses are looking
promising. We are also expanding our existing businesses and
looking at new strategic investments."
PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2013:

- Net asset value – the most important indicator of
performance in Sekunjalo grew to 96.50c per share from
90.49c per share last year. Sekunjalo’s tangible Net Asset
Value appreciated by 7% to 86.26c per share;

Additional financial information

Highlights

Revenue increased by 25% from R455m to R569m.

Headline earnings increased by 63% from R18m to R30m.

NAV per share increased by 7% from 90,49c to 96,50c

Group performance

The Group revenue has increased by 25% to R569m (2012:R455m), thereby breaking the half
a billion mark which reflects the underlying operational organic growth of the
operations.

The profit attributable to the Group equity holders is R29m (2012: R18m). The headline
earnings has increased from R18m to R30m in 2013 with headline earnings per share
("HEPS") increasing from 3.75c to 6.10c. This is mainly due to the increase in the
value of the strategic investments and operational performance. Prior year headline
earnings were impacted by the change in the capital gains tax rate.

The operating profit has increased from R59m to R67m which demonstrates that
consistent returns were achieved from the underlying investments.

The Group net asset value (NAV") increased by approximately 5,5% from R452m to R477m
which shows the strength of the Groups financial position. The NAV per share increased
from 90,49c to 96,50c. Tangible net asset value per share increased from 80,31c to
86,26c. Sekunjalos strategic intent to increase its investment asset base has been
achieved.

The group has incurred capital expenditure of R11,8m in the current year under review,
mainly from the fishing division with maintenance and replacement cost of R9m on the
vessel fleet.

As a result of the dividend cash flows decreasing from R18m to R11m in comparison to
prior year, the net cash flows from operating activities have decreased from R53m to
R42m.

The fishing division performed well as a result of additional sales volumes from the
lobster division, better market pricing and favourable exchange rates.

Profit growth for the fishing division was excellent compared to the prior year, with
operating profit increasing by 50% to R24m.

The Sekunjalo Technology Solutions Group division earnings declined from R38m to R35m
due to the expected lower margins after the successful implementation of projects.


Strategic investments

The Groups strategic investments consist of British Telecom Communication Services
South Africa (BTSA"), Saab South Africa (Pty) Ltd (Saab SA") and Pioneer Food
Group Ltd.

The investment in BTSA continues to perform well with budgeted expectations exceeded in
the current year. The investment looks extremely well positioned to grow consistently
over the next few years. The investment delivered another consistent dividend during
the year under review.

Saab SA is the South African operations of Swedish multi-national Saab AB, which
specializes in civil security and defense. The Group expects this investment to return
a dividend in the medium term.

Our investment in the Pioneer Foods Group grew from R84m to R125m for our 0,75%
stake. Dividends were received in the current year by the listed investment, which
indicates consistent returns.


Information Communication Technology

The expected growth of Sekunjalo Technology Solutions Group division (Sek TSG") is
shown in the revenue growth of 27%, an increase from R152m to R192m. The operating
profit to the Group is R35m which shows that the technology solution division continues
to perform consistently.

Companies in the Sek TSG division include Saratoga Software (Pty) Ltd (Saratoga")
which is a software development house primarily focused on the insurance industry and
Digital Matter (Pty) Ltd (Digital Matter"), a 75% Saratoga owned subsidiary providing
mobile data solutions. In the current year, the Saratoga Group acquired World Wide
Creative (Pty) Ltd, a digital marketing agency to expand its operations into a new
sector.

Health System Technologies (HST") is a leading provider of Hospital Information and
Laboratory Information Systems for the South African public sector and continues to
show excellent results with revenue increasing by 12% due to the successful
implementation of its IT contracts and projects over the past three years.

HST partnered with AME International through AmetHst (Pty) Ltd (AmetHst"), which won
the Gauteng Department of Healths HIS contract which entails implementing systems in
over 60 Gauteng hospitals and clinics.

As previously reported, the contract entered into between AmetHst as part of the Baoki
Consortium and the Gauteng Department of Health for the implementation of the hospital
information systems(HIS") has been cancelled by the Baoki Consortium. This action was
taken as a result of a non-delivery by the Gauteng Department of Health on their
contractual obligations. The arbitration for this legal claim is ongoing.

Laboratory System Technology ("LST"), a former supplier to HST, had made a claim against
the company that it had infringed LST's copyright by copying the LST code, to produce
web based software. HST pursued negotiations on the basis of LST's original claim and
the matter was settled out of court on 27 May 2013 by both parties.

Marine

Premier Fishing SA (Pty) Ltd (Premier Fishing") is the largest black owned and
controlled fishing company in South Africa and the most transformed in terms of its
management and employees.

The major product lines for Premier Fishing are south coast rock lobster, west coast
rock lobster, squid, abalone and pelagic.

Premier Fishing performed well with good catch rates in the lobster sector and obtained
favourable market pricing.

Operating profit of R24m (2012:R16m) was achieved for this division, a 50% increase
from the prior year. The above mentioned factors along with the effects of the weakened
rand were the major reasons for the good performance.

The south coast rock lobsters division revenue was affected by 16% of the quota which
was not caught at year end due to poor weather conditions. The balance of the 2013 quota
was caught in the first quarter of 2014. Good catch mix enabled a good performance from
this division.

The west coast rock lobster division performed considerably well taking into account the
extra sale volumes achieved in the current year.

The pelagic sector did not fare well in the 2013 season due to poor catch rates of
anchovy fish. This division landed most of their pilchard quota and only a portion of
their anchovy quota.

The squid industry faced another tough year in terms of landing volumes, however,
management achieved a small profit in this division.

Marine Growers (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Premier Fishing, delivered good revenues with
additional volumes sold to the Far East. The abalone farm continues to perform well
despite the tough economic climate.

Premier Fishing received a summons from the Competition Commission pursuant to the
Commission's investigation into the pelagic fishing industry which has been ongoing
since July 2008. Premier Fishing's attorneys have undertaken an extensive investigation
to settle the matter. The settlement terms are currently being negotiated. A provision
for the expected penalty has been accounted for.

Healthcare

The pharmaceutical operation in Health Care has produced an operational loss of R8m due
to revenues generated being below expectations.

The product offerings in the natural disinfectant and sanitiser sector is growing well
and good traction is being achieved in this operation.

Biotechnology

Genius Biotherapeutics ("Genius"), formerly known as Bioclones (Pty) Ltd, is South Africa
and Africas largest medical biotechnology company with strategic interests in
biogenerics and novel compounds.

Genius also holds global patents for personalised medicine and vaccines. Genius
Biotherapeutics novel technology is in advanced stages with the next stage of
development proceeding well towards pre-clinical trials. The company has partnered with
the University of Cape Town ("UCT") Department of Medicine, UCT Lung Institute and
Pulmonology and Immunity unit to develop the therapeutic vaccine against cancer.

Management continues with its plans to upgrade the manufacturing facility to prepare for
improved production to increase efficiency at the facility in Centurion.

During the year, the scientific team at the Cape Town facility continued with their
efforts to replicate the protocol for the granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF)
technology.

Media

The Sekunjalo Media ("Sekmedia") division incurred a loss due to the cancellation and
postponement of certain new events. Sekmedia owns the rights of and manages the
Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The Cape Town International Jazz Festival
continues to bear fruit and contributes greatly to the gross domestic product of the
Western Cape and national economy.
