The financial statements in this report contain the following modifications to the reviewed condensed consolidated financial results published on SENS on Tuesday, 24 February 2015 and in the press on Wednesday, 25 February 2015:

|(R millions) |
|Reviewed||Audited Annual Financial Statements||Difference|
|Non-current borrowings||1 251||1 459||(208)|
|Total||2 042||2 042||-|
An unsecured foreign US dollar loan of R208 million, shown as current borrowings in the reviewed results, had been renegotiated during the 2014 financial year and will only become payable in 2016.
Accordingly, current and non-current borrowings have been adjusted in this amount.
The annual financial statements were audited by the Company's auditors, KPMG Inc., and their unmodified report is available for inspection at AECI's registered office.
Printed copies of the integrated report and summarised financial statements were also posted today to those shareholders still receiving information in paper form.
