TRENCOR LIMITED
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)
(Registration No 1955/002869/06)
Share Code: TRE
ISIN: ZAE000007506
(“Trencor” or "the Company")

                                                                    Further Trading Statement

Shareholders are referred to the Trading Statement and Further Trading Statement published on the Stock Exchange News Service (“SENS”) on 3 October and 12 October 2016 respectively.  In the Further Trading Statement of 12 October 2016 it was advised that Trencor’s (loss)/earnings per share, headline (loss)/earnings per share and adjusted headline (loss)/earnings per share for the six months ended 30 June 2016 were expected to be within the ranges set out below:

(Loss)/Earnings per share   (1 280) - (1 300) 278 (83)

*As a result of the restatement disclosed in note 35 to the 2015 Trencor annual financial statements, the comparative amounts for the six months ended 30 June 2015 have been restated accordingly.  Previously reported amounts: headline earnings 275,8, adjusted headline earnings 261,2 and earnings 275,3 cents per share respectively.

The information above took into account the impairment of the Hanjin trade receivable as at 30 June 2016, but did not take into account further uncertainties related to the Hanjin bankruptcy.  Subsequent to publication of the Further Trading Statement on 12 October 2016, Trencor has received additional information relating to the Hanjin finance lease receivables due to Textainer.  The amounts receivable under these finance leases have been impaired to the current best estimate of the fair value of the containers which serve as collateral.  Currently, great uncertainty exists in relation to the potential recovery of the underlying container fleet on lease to Hanjin and an estimate of its financial effect cannot at present be made.

Consequently, shareholders are now advised that Trencor’s loss per share, headline loss per share and adjusted headline loss per share for the six months ended 30 June 2016 are expected to be within the ranges set out below:

 

2016

30 June

Expected

Headline loss per share   (320) - (330)
Adjusted headline loss per share (which excludes net unrealised foreign exchange losses on translation of long-term receivables)  

 

                         (310) - (320)

Loss per share   (1 330) - (1 350)

The financial information on which this Further Trading Statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by Trencor’s external auditors.

Shareholders are advised that the Company expects to publish its Interim Results in respect of the six months ended 30 June 2016 on SENS on or before 21 October 2016.
