Summarised consolidated annual results and
cash dividend declaration
FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2016

Responsibility for annual results
The preparation of these annual results has been supervised by the chief financial officer, Aarti Takoordeen CA(SA), in terms of section 29(1)(e)
of the Companies Act. This report is extracted from the audited information, but is not itself audited. The directors take full responsibility for the
preparation of this report and warrant that the financial information has been correctly extracted from the underlying audited annual financial
statements.

COMMENTARY
We are pleased to report that the JSE Group earnings after tax grew by 2% to R920 million (2015: R899 million). This was achieved against the
following backdrop:
– South Africa navigated a particularly noisy socio-economic environment;
– Key global markets experienced socio-economic upheavals;
– The JSE listed ABInBev SA/NV (the world’s largest brewer), Hammerson plc (one of the UK’s leading real estate investment trusts (REITs) and
7 AltX listings, among 18 new listings;
– The JSE moved to T+3 equity settlement with zero failed trades to date (something for which we know of no international precedent);
– We upgraded our equity trading engine and implemented new large order functionality to allow clients to execute large orders with lower
market impact;
– We reduced certain BDA and equity trading fees considerably;
– Liquidity on the local register grew to nearly 80%;
– Real traction has been gained in implementing the electronic trading platform for government bonds;
– Value traded grew in almost all the derivative markets;
– We launched new initiatives to support the development of our black brokers to facilitate the trading of BEE schemes;
– We invested R205 million in capex to enable us to deliver faster, more reliable systems to our clients; and
– New exchange licences have been granted in South Africa.
Operating revenue rose by 10% to R2.3 billion (2015: R2.1 billion). Group earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) decreased by 5% to R975 million
(2015: R1 billion) following the impact of price reductions, forex movement and cost growth. Although EBIT declined, the positive contribution
from higher finance income and a higher contribution from Strate (the Group’s equity accounted investee) supported net profit after tax (NPAT)
growth for 2016.
Earnings per share (EPS) and headline earnings per share (HEPS) were at 1 074.8 cents (up 2%) and 1 063.2 cents (up 4%) respectively.

Revenue
Operating revenue grew despite higher year-on-year fee reductions of R34 million (2015: R18 million) in Back-Office Services (BDA) and the
impact of the R30 million (2015: R0 million) elimination of charges for certain report-only trades in 2016. The following contributions to operating
revenue are worth noting:
– The Primary Market recorded a 2% increase in revenue to R164 million (2015: R161 million) as a result of equity listing fees being brought in
line with global peers;
– Equity Market billable value traded grew by 18%, contributing to an 11% increase in cash equities trading revenue to R555 million (2015: R501
million). The revenue reflected is net of the fees eliminated for certain report-only trades (R30 million);
– BDA revenue grew by 2% to R316 million (2015: R311 million) owing to increased number of transactions. The revenue reflected is net of fee
reductions of R34 million;
– The Equity Derivatives Market value traded increased by 4%, resulting in a 2% increase in revenue to R177 million (2015: R173 million);
– Currency Derivatives Market revenue increased by 12% to R38 million (2015: R34 million) owing to the increase in the number of contracts
traded (up 7%);
– Interest Rate Market bond nominal value traded increased by 22%, resulting in a 20% increase in revenue to R60 million (2015: R50 million).
This was on the back of two SARB Monetary Policy Committee repo rate hikes in 2016 and continued expectations that the US Federal
Reserve would hike interest rates;
– Commodity derivatives revenue declined by 4% to R70 million (2015: R73 million) owing to a 2% drop in commodity derivatives contracts.
2016 was a tough year for the grains sector, as the drought significantly reduced the available deliverable supply of grains, negatively
impacting trading volumes;
– Post-Trade Services grew by 16% to R413 million (2015: R357 million) following the increase in equity billable value traded; and
– Information Services, which includes Market Data, grew revenue by 22% to R298 million (2015: R245 million) because of new business, new
clients, new products, colocation and the impact of forex gains.

Other income
Year-on year Group revenue growth was negatively impacted by a R14 million forex loss (2015: R83 million forex gain) on foreign denominated assets.

Operating expenditure
The Group’s total operating expenses increased by 12% to R1.4 billion (2015: R1.3 billion) following higher technology investment, staff costs and
expenses to support our ecosystem.

Personnel costs increased by 14% (R69 million) to R565 million (2015: R496 million). This is made up as follows:
– Gross remuneration per employee increased by 7% and average headcount increased by 1%. This, together with the impact of the change
in the mix of staff, resulted in a net 11% increase in the payroll bill or an increase of 8 percentage points. Headcount at year-end was
483 (2015: 506).
– The accounting impact for the long-term incentive scheme (LTIS) increased by R13 million to R43 million (2015: R30 million), contributing
3 percentage points to the growth. This amount includes a R4 million accelerated recognition for good leavers.
– Retention payments amounting to R9 million (2015: R0 million), contributed 2 percentage points to growth.
– The discretionary reward pool increased to R88.9 million (representing 9.7% of NPAT) from R85.9 million in 2015 (representing 9.6% of 2015
NPAT). This R3 million increase in the reward pool contributed 1 percentage point to the growth in personnel costs.
– Remuneration capitalised to projects increased by R1 million to R19 million (2015: R18 million) as work on strategic projects continues.

Technology costs increased by 20% or R48 million to R283 million (2015: R235 million) as we maintained our technology investments to ensure
robust product and service delivery to our clients.

General expenses increased by 9% to R463 million (2015: R425 million).

Depreciation was largely flat at R99 million (2015: R100 million).

Robust balance sheet
We generated R976 million (2015: R888 million) and ended the year with a robust balance sheet, including R2 billion (2015: R1.9 billion) in cash,
owing to strong working capital management.

We invested R205 million in capex to enable us to deliver more reliable systems.

The Board believes that the JSE is appropriately capitalised, given the nature of the risks we currently face and given the uncertain nature of
future regulatory capital requirements.

Prospects
Despite the difficult economic environment in which, for the first time, we expect to see local licensed exchange competitors, we are clear about
our 2017 priorities and hence the issues that we need to tackle to achieve our strategy and grow this business sustainably.

The JSE is a largely fixed-cost business. Therefore we will maintain our focus on costs, while making the necessary capital investments in areas
that will enhance the Group’s sustainability and diversify revenue.

Our revenues are variable and largely driven by activity on the various markets that we operate. For this reason, the Board makes no projections
regarding the Group’s financial performance in 2017.

REGULATION
South African financial sector policy makers and regulators have guided the Financial Sector Regulation Bill, also known as the Twin Peaks
Bill, through the Standing Committee on Finance in Parliament. The Regulations primarily provide for the regulation of the over-the-counter
derivatives market but include the governance, capital requirements and risk requirements for market infrastructures (exchanges, clearing
houses, central counterparties, central depositories and trade repositories). This Bill will impact both how the JSE is regulated and the cost of
operating in a regulated environment. The JSE is ready to meet the new regulatory capital requirements and is exploring opportunities to provide
products and services to give capital relief to its clients.

ACCOLADES
South Africa’s overall rating in the World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Index improved in the 2016-2017 rankings, to 47th from 49th
last year and from 52nd in 2012-2013. The financial sector and corporate governance continue to be highlights for South Africa and we have top
three global rankings in the following categories: strength of auditing and reporting standards; protection of minority shareholders’ rights; and
financing through the local equity market. We are number two in financial services meeting business needs and soundness of banks, as well as
number three in the efficacy of corporate boards and the regulation of securities exchanges. These accolades demonstrate how relevant and
competitive our financial sector remains.

Changes to directorate during the period under review
In 2016, there was the following change to our Board:
– Dr Leila Fourie, director of Post-Trade and Information Services, resigned with effect from 18 July 2016 following her emigration.

– Tswantsho Matsena was appointed with effect from 1 July 2016 as director of Trading and Market Services; and
– Donald Khumalo was appointed with effect from 1 November 2016 as director of Human Resources.

Declaration of ordinary dividend
The Board has decided to declare an ordinary dividend for the year ended December 2016 at 560 cents per ordinary share (2015: 520 cents

2. Basis of preparation
Statement of compliance
The summary consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the JSE Listings Requirements, and the
the Companies Act applicable to summary financial statements. The Listings Requirements require such reports to be prepared in accordance
with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the
SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial
Reporting Standards Council and to also, as a minimum, contain the information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting. The accounting
policies applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements, from which the summary consolidated financial statements were
derived, are consistent with those applied in the preparation of the previous period’s consolidated annual financial statements.

3. Changes in accounting policies
All accounting policies applied by the Group in these summarised consolidated financial statements are in terms of IFRS and are the same
as those applied by the Group in its consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2016.

4. Comparative figures
Unless otherwise indicated, comparative figures refer to the 12 months ended December 2015.

5. Use of estimates and judgements
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRSs requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions
that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The estimates
and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the
circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making the judgements about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not
readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in
which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected.

6. Financial risk management
The Group’s financial risk management objectives and policies are consistent with those disclosed in the consolidated financial statements
as at and for the year ended 31 December 2016.

7. Operating segments
An operating segment is a component of the Group that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur
expenses, including revenues and expenses that relate to transactions with any of the Group’s other components. Costs in the JSE are
managed holistically across the Exchange and variances against budget are closely monitored. Information technology and other corporate
overheads are not generally allocated to a particular segment.

iii. Grant of Allocation 7 under LTIS 2010 during the period under review
At the annual general meeting held on 26 May 2016, shareholders approved two special resolutions authorising the acquisition of
shares for the purposes of awards under the LTIS 2010 scheme as well as the provision of financial assistance to the JSE LTIS 2010
Trust for a period of two years, for the purpose of acquiring such JSE ordinary shares in the open market for allocation to selected
employees in accordance with the rules of LTIS 2010. In accordance with the terms of these resolutions, the Board approved a fresh
annual allocation of 342 090 shares (‘Allocation 7’) to selected employees for the 2016 year. These individual allocations were
accepted by all scheme participants on 4 March 2016. As at this date, the grant date as defined in IFRS 2 had not been determined
as the detailed terms of the vesting conditions were in the process of being finalised. These were finalised and communicated to all
affected parties on 21 October 2016, which was established as the grant date as defined in IFRS 2. The initial award under Allocation
7 comprised a total of 342 090 JSE ordinary shares and these shares were acquired in the open market by 10 March 2016, at a volume-
weighted average price (including all execution costs) of R158.25 per ordinary share. An additional purchase of 9 684 shares was
executed in respect of the Human Resources Director who joined the Company on 25 November 2016, at a volume-weighted average
price (including all execution costs) of R161.01 per ordinary share. All Allocation 7 shares are held in trust and are restricted until all
vesting conditions are fulfilled, whereupon the shares vest.

Included in the total number of shares granted of 351 774, a total of 177 214 corporate performance shares have been granted to
members of the JSE’s Excecutive Committee. No personal performance shares were allocated under Allocation 7.

15. Fair value estimation
Financial instruments measured in the statement of financial position at fair value require disclosure. The following is the fair value
measurement hierarchy:
– Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1).
– Inputs other than quoted prices included in level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (that is, as prices) or
indirectly (that is, derived from prices) (level 2).
– Inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (that is, unobservable inputs) (level 3).

The following table presents the Group’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value.
