In compliance with section 3.4 (b) of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited (‘Listings Requirements’),
a listed company is required to publish a trading statement as soon as it becomes reasonably certain that
the financial results for the period to be reported on next will show a 20% or more difference from the
previous corresponding period.
DAWN shareholders are advised that, with a reasonable degree of certainty , the Group expects results for
the 6 months to 30 September 2018 to be as follows:
Headline loss per share (‘HLPS’) will reflect a deterioration of between 174% and 188% compared to the
HLPS achieved for the half year reported ended 30 September 2017. This translates to a HLPS of between
37.6 and 39.5 and cents per share compared to the HLPS of 13.73 cents per share for the half year ended
30 September 2017.
The loss per share (‘LPS’) will reflect a deterioration of between 98% and 112% compared to the LPS
incurred for the half year reported ended 30 September 2017. This translates to a LPS of between 38.5
and 41.2 cents per share compared to the LPS of 19.45 cents per share for the comparative half year ended
30 September 2017.
The financial results on which this trading statement has been based, have not been reviewed and reported
on by DAWN’s auditors.
