In terms of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, a listed company is required to publish a
trading statement as soon as it becomes reasonably certain that the financial results for the
next period to be reported on will differ by 20% or more from the financial results for the
previous corresponding period. The Company hereby advises that it expects the financial
results for the six months ended 30 June 2022 to fall within the following ranges:

cents cents change

Recurring headline
Increase of between 22.2%
earnings per share 19.4 23.7 to 27.1
and 39.7%

Headline earnings Increase of between 33.5%
19.4 25.9 to 29.1
per share (“HEPS”) and 50.0%

Earnings per share Increase of between 19.4%
21.7 25.9 to 29.1
(“EPS”) and 34.1%

In evaluating these results, shareholders should take into account that Curro’s Meridian
subsidiary received long overdue education subsidy income from the provincial government
in the first half of this year, which is treated as non-recurring in this period.

This subsidy income is included in the calculation of EPS and HEPS but is removed for
purposes of the calculation of RHEPS, and accordingly accounts for the key difference
between RHEPS and HEPS and EPS.

The Company had 597 961 595 shares in issue throughout the first half of this year and the
previous comparable period.
