DISTRIBUTION OF INTEGRATED ANNUAL REPORT

Trencor will on Wednesday, 11 July 2018 distribute its integrated annual report, incorporating its audited annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2017 (“audited financial statements”), which are unchanged from the reviewed condensed consolidated financial statements (“reviewed provisional results”) released on the Stock Exchange News Service (“SENS”) on 22 May 2018 and distributed to shareholders on 23 May 2018, save as detailed in the Change Statement below.

The Company’s independent auditors have issued an unmodified audit opinion. The integrated annual report is available on the Company’s website: http://www.trencor.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=252&Itemid=796

CHANGE STATEMENT

The audited financial statements contain two changes from the reviewed provisional results for the year ended 31 December 2017, namely:

  • Capital expenditure committed and authorised, but not yet incurred amounts to R3 030 million, previously reported as R2 365 million; and
  • Incorrect allocation of impairment losses relating to containers on lease to defaulting customers which affected headline earnings.

The change to headline earnings results from (i) the incorrect allocation of amounts in respect of previously impaired containers which were disposed of during the financial year and (ii) the incorrect allocation of an amount previously impaired, now no longer required as a result of the improved recovery rate of the containers related to the Hanjin bankruptcy referred to in note 20.2 of the annual financial statements.

     

 The above changes have had no effect on the consolidated statement of financial position as presented in the reviewed provisional results.
