JSE JSE - JSE Limited - Trading Statement JSE LIMITED (Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa) (Registration number: 2005/022939/06) Share Code: JSE ISIN Code: ZAE000079711 ("JSE") TRADING STATEMENT JSE is currently finalising its interim results for the six month period ended 30 June 2007, which should be released on 14 August 2007. Shareholders are advised that the consolidated revenue of the JSE for the period is expected to be between 27% and 35% higher than for the same period last year. Consolidated earnings per share for the same period are expected to be between 53% and 61% lower, with headline earnings per share being between 59% and 67% lower than for the comparable period last year, mainly as a result of the following: - the final issue of shares at par value to the JSE Empowerment Fund (JEF), amounting to approximately R30 million. The actual impact of this on cash flow is insignificant; - the second tranche of options issued to qualifying black shareholders in terms of the Black Shareholder Retention Scheme, amounting to approximately R53 million. The actual current impact of this on cash flow is zero. There will be a positive impact on cash flow when the options are exercised in 2011; - the valuation of the Employee Scheme for the six month period, amounting to approximately R47 million. The actual current impact of this on cash flow is zero. The Employee Scheme will have an impact on cash flow in 2009, 2010 and 2011; - in the comparable period, there was a non-recurring receipt from the insurers in the JSE Guarantee Fund Trust of R26 million. Shareholders are reminded that, although the JSE Guarantee Fund Trust and the JSE Derivative Fidelity Fund Trust are consolidated in compliance with IFRS, they are legally separate from the JSE and neither the JSE nor its shareholders have any right to the net assets of such trusts.
