These annual financial statements have been prepared under the supervision of
A G Waller, BCom, CA(SA). A G Waller; Group Financial Director
28 February 2012
Overview
2011 was an important year for Grindrod. The group continued to advance in
ports, terminals and rail infrastructure projects in Africa, in order to realise
its strategy of becoming an integrated freight and logistics service provider,
whilst retaining its position in shipping.
During the year shareholders approved the raising of R2 billion in equity, which
is required to develop infrastructural opportunities and projects, in particular
the expansion of coal terminal capacity.
The format of the specific share issue underwritten by the Remgro Group enabled
Grindrod to raise funds at a premium to the market.
In order to reduce the group's exposure to a single project and increase its
ability to execute its strategy, the Vitol Group, the world's largest
independent energy trader, has been introduced as a strategic partner to Maputo
Coal Terminal. Vitol has also entered into a coal trading venture with Grindrod.
The transactions, which are subject to regulatory approvals, were concluded and
announced in January 2012.
The group generated earnings of R530,9 million for the year ended 31 December
2011 (2010: R780,3 million), a 32% decline. Headline earnings per share
decreased by 41% to 99,6 cents per share (2010: 167,7 cents per share). Earnings
growth on the prior year was achieved in the Freight Services, Trading and
Financial Services divisions, whilst the Shipping division was impacted by weak
shipping markets.
Total ordinary dividends of 29,5 cents per share (2010: 54,0 cents per share)
was declared, at a dividend cover of 3,8 times.
Whilst the R2 billion raised strengthened the group's statement of financial
position, this has resulted in a dilution of earnings and the final dividend.
Capital expenditure and commitments
Capital expenditure was directed towards the group's ship newbuilding programme,
the expansion of terminal capacity and the replacement of a portion of the
Logistics road fleet.
Future capital commitments relate to the expansion of terminal capacity and the
procurement of locomotives and ships. The commitments exclude the planned
expansion of terminal capacity to 20 million tonnes at Maputo and by about 8
million tonnes at Richards Bay, railway infrastructure and the development of a
bulk liquid storage facility at Coega currently being developed.

The table above includes capital commitments of R365 million relating to
Grindrod's share of joint ventures' capital commitments.
Cash flow and borrowings
Operating profit before working capital adjustments was R1 069 million (2010: R1
316 million).
Cash outflows included investment in working capital of R1 264 million, capital
expenditure of R1 166 million and dividends of R260 million. Increased working
capital was required in December as a result of high oil prices and increased
sales in the Trading division. Cash inflows included net R1 984 million received
on the issue of shares. This resulted in the net debt position at 31 December
2010 of R1 835 million decreasing to R890 million at 31 December 2011 and the
net debt:equity ratio decreasing from 31% to 10%.
The group incurred a net interest expense of R49 million for the year compared
to a net interest expense of R51 million in the prior year.
The group is confident that it has adequate funding for all capital commitments
through its cash resources and bank facilities.
Shareholders' equity
The R2 billion, together with a translation gain of R905 million and retained
profits, increased shareholders' equity by 56% from R5 971 million at 31
December 2010 to R9 311 million at 31 December 2011.
On 31 October 2011, 133 333 334 ordinary shares were issued by way of a specific
issue. The total number of ordinary shares in issue accordingly increased to 598
715 314.

Basis of preparation
The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance
with the recognition and measurement criteria of International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) and its interpretations adopted by the International
Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in issue and effective for the group at 31
December 2011 and the AC 500 standards issued by the Accounting Practices Board
or its successor. The results are presented in terms of IAS 34 Interim Financial
Reporting and comply with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited and the
Companies Act 71 of 2008.
These condensed consolidated annual financial statements were approved by the
board of directors on 28 February 2012.
Accounting policies
The accounting policies adopted and methods of computation used in the
preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements are in terms of
IFRS and are consistent with those of the annual financial statements for the
year ended 31 December 2010 except for the adoption of new or revised accounting
standards, interpretations and circulars which are described below.
New accounting standards
During the year the group elected to early adopt IFRS 10, Consolidated Financial
Statements, IFRS 11, Joint Arrangements, IAS 27 (as revised in 2011), Separate
Financial Statements, IAS 28 (as revised in 2011), Investments in Associates and
Joint Ventures and IFRS 12, Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities. The group
believes that adoption of these standards will improve the disclosure of the
nature and risks associated with interests in other entities. The major change
as a result of the early adoption is that joint venture entities which were
previously proportionately consolidated are now accounted for and disclosed on
the same basis as investments in associates, which are equity accounted. These
standards have been applied retrospectively.
The group adopted IAS 24 (revised) Related Party Transactions in the current
year which modifies the definition of a related party. The adoption of this
standard has had no material effect on the group's disclosures.
Audit opinion
The auditors, Deloitte & Touche, have issued their opinion on the group's
financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2011.
The audit was conducted in accordance with International Standards of Auditing.
They have issued an unmodified audit opinion. These condensed consolidated
annual financial statements have been derived from the group financial
statements and are consistent in all material respects with the group financial
statements. A copy of their audit report is available for inspection at the
company's registered office.
Any reference to future financial performance included in this announcement has
not been reviewed or reported on by the group's external auditors.
