COMMENTARY
 
 
OVERVIEW
 
 
PSG is an investment holding company consisting of underlying investments that operate across
 
a diverse range of industries which include financial services, banking, private equity, agriculture
 
and education. PSG’s market capitalisation (net of treasury shares) is approximately R20bn, with its
 
largest investment a 28,3% interest in Capitec.
 
 
The six-month period under review saw strong performance from all of PSG’s key investments.
 
 
RESULTS
 
 
The two key benchmarks which PSG believes to measure performance by are sum-of-the-parts (“SOTP”) value
 
and recurring headline earnings per share.
 
 
SOTP
 
 
The calculation of the SOTP value is simple and requires limited subjectivity as 81% of the value is
 
calculated using JSE-listed share prices, while other investments are included at market-related
 
valuations. At 31 August 2014, the SOTP value per PSG share was R109,52 (28 February 2014: R95,01).
 
At 10 October 2014, the SOTP value was R118,49 per share.

Capitec remains PSG’s largest investment and represented 29% (28 February 2014: 30%) of the SOTP value’s
 
total assets as at 31 August 2014. It continues to be the major contributor to PSG’s recurring headline
 
earnings.

Recurring headline earnings for the six months ended 31 August 2014 increased by 30% to 252,7 cents per
 
share, following commendable per share earnings growth from Capitec (21%), PSG Konsult (32%) and
 
Zeder (78%). While Curro’s earnings contribution remains relatively small, it reported a 76% increase
 
in recurring headline earnings per share for the six months ended 30 June 2014. This investment is
 
expected to become a major earnings contributor to PSG in years to come. PSG Private Equity reported
 
a 49% decrease in recurring headline earnings per share following tough trading conditions at select
 
investments, such as the recent platinum mining strikes.
 
 
Headline earnings increased by 31% to 312,9 cents per share. The non-recurring headline gains achieved
 
during the period under review mainly comprised marked-to-market profits on Thembeka’s portfolio of
 
listed shares.
 
 
Attributable earnings increased by 24% to 305,8 cents per share.
 
 
CAPITAL RAISING
 
 
PSG has strengthened its capital base for further investing during the period under review. R920m was
 
raised through the issue of new equity by means of a bookbuild during June 2014, and a further R155m
 
through a private placement during August 2014.
 
 
CAPITEC (28,3%)
 
 
The recent demise of African Bank (as well as certain other players in the unsecured lending market)
 
was a major event in Capitec’s life - we commend the Capitec management team on the way they handled
 
the situation!
 
 
Capitec is an exceptional business. It is very different to and not necessarily comparable with the
 
majority of other players in the unsecured lending market. Key differences include the following:
 
 
- Capitec has a banking relationship with its clients, providing it with greater insight into their
 
financial wellbeing and naturally favours the collection of debt;
 
- It has a lower appetite for risk. Capitec’s credit screening models and affordability assessments
 
are highly advanced – it focuses relentlessly on granting loans which clients are able to repay;
 
- Capitec prices credit at lower rates since it does not charge credit life and retrenchment
 
insurance over and above the maximum interest rates allowed by the National Credit Act. It
 
consequently lends to lower risk clients;
 
- It has a diversified income stream with net transaction fees from its banking operations now
 
constituting 34% of total net income;
 
- Capitec has a diversified funding base comprising a healthy blend of wholesale fixed, retail fixed
 
and call deposits;
 
- It has a high level of liquidity with R16,6bn in cash, representing 34% of total assets;
 
- Capitec’s provisioning and bad debt write-off policies are the most conservative in the market.
 
It provides for 8% of loans that are up to date, 46% of loans behind by one instalment, 74% of
 
loans behind by two instalments and 87% of loans behind by three instalments. After 90 days in
 
arrears, Capitec considers the loan bad and writes it off in full. Provisions are almost twice the
 
size of loans in arrears, as demonstrated by the arrears coverage ratio of 194%;
 
- Capitec’s capital adequacy ratio remains prudent at 38%; and
 
- In our opinion, Capitec has the best management team in this industry.
 
 
Capitec’s comprehensive results for the six months ended 31 August 2014 are available
 
at www.capitecbank.co.za.
 
 
PSG KONSULT (62,7%)
 
 
We are proud of PSG Konsult’s listing on the JSE (and the NSX) during the period under review. It has
 
been a dream of ours ever since the first stockbrokers joined our group in 1996.
 
 
All of PSG Konsult’s divisions delivered a strong performance.
 
 
PSG Konsult’s comprehensive results for the six months ended 31 August 2014 are available
 
at www.psg.co.za.
 
 
CURRO (57,1%)
 
 
The education market offers significant investment opportunities and Curro continues to capitalise
 
on same. The majority of its schools are either performing to expectation, or better. We look forward
 
to Curro achieving (and even exceeding) its target of reaching 80 schools with 80 000 learners by 2020.
 
 
Curro’s comprehensive results for the six months ended 30 June 2014 are available at www.curro.co.za.
 
 
ZEDER (42,8%)
 
 
The Zeder/Agri Voedsel merger was a new milestone for PSG as it constituted the largest single
 
transaction in our history. Following implementation, Zeder will own an asset portfolio in excess
 
of R10bn, with its 32% direct interest in Pioneer being the major investment. PSG’s interest in Zeder
 
will dilute to 29,1%. Zeder’s portfolio, especially Pioneer and Capespan, reported strong earnings
 
growth for the period under review.
 
 
Zeder’s comprehensive results for the six months ended 31 August 2014 are available at www.zeder.co.za.
 
 
PSG PRIVATE EQUITY (100%)
 
 
PSG Private Equity serves as incubator to find the businesses of tomorrow. Management is continuously
 
refining the existing portfolio and is actively searching for exciting new investment opportunities.
 
Given its nature, this portfolio will inevitably yield volatile earnings, while providing significant
 
optionality.
 
 
THEMBEKA (49%)
 
 
Thembeka reported a 44% increase in recurring headline earnings per share for the period under review.
 
 
PSG has made a formal offer to acquire the 51% shareholding it does not already own in Thembeka by
 
issuing 1,7 PSG shares for every 1 Thembeka share held. The objective of this transaction is to provide
 
the 51% black-owned Thembeka shareholders with a mechanism to realise the underlying value that has been
 
created since establishment in 2006. The financial effect of same on PSG will be negligible.
 
 
PROSPECTS
 
 
PSG is fortunate to have a quality asset portfolio with significant investment opportunities that should
 
continue yielding above average returns in future.
 
 
DIVIDENDS
 
 
Ordinary shares
 
PSG’s policy remains to pay up to 100% of free cash flow as an ordinary dividend, of which one third is
 
payable as an interim and the balance as a final dividend at year-end. The directors have resolved to
 
declare a gross interim dividend of 55 cents (2013: 43 cents) for the six months ended 31 August 2014.
 
 
The company will be utilising secondary tax on companies credits amounting to 1 cent per ordinary share
 
and, as a result, the taxable interim dividend per share will amount to 54 cents per share. The dividend
 
amount, net of South African dividend tax of 15% equating to 8,1 cents per share, is therefore 46,9 cents
 
per share for those shareholders that are not exempt from dividend tax. The number of ordinary shares in
 
issue at the declaration date is 218 873 454, and the income tax reference number of the company
 
is 9950080714. The ordinary dividend will be paid from income reserves.
 
 
The salient dates of this dividend distribution are:
 
 
Last day to trade cum dividend Friday, 31 October 2014
 
Trading ex dividend commences Monday, 3 November 2014
 
Record date Friday, 7 November 2014
 
Payment date Monday, 10 November 2014
 
 
Share certificates may not be dematerialised or rematerialised between Monday, 3 November 2014 and
 
Friday, 7 November 2014, both days included.
 
 
Preference shares
 
The directors of PSG Financial Services Ltd have declared a dividend of 380,64 cents per share in respect
 
of the cumulative, non-redeemable, non-participating preference shares for the six months ended
 
31 August 2014, which was paid on 22 September 2014. The detailed announcement in respect hereof was
 
disseminated on Stock Exchange News Services (“SENS”).

Notes to the condensed interim group financial statements
 
 
1. Basis of presentation and accounting policies
 
 
These condensed interim group financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the recognition
 
and measurement principles of International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the
 
International Accounting Standards Board, including IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting; the SAICA
 
Financial Reporting Guides, as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee; the Financial Reporting
 
Pronouncements, as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council; the requirements of the South
 
African Companies Act, 71 of 2008, as amended; and the Listings Requirements of the JSE Ltd.
 
 
The accounting policies applied in the preparation of these condensed interim group financial statements
 
are consistent in all material respects with those used in the prior financial year, apart from the
 
adoption of various revisions to IFRS which are effective for the financial year ending 28 February 2015,
 
none of which resulted in a material impact on the group’s reported interim results or disclosures.
 
 
The statement of cash flows for the six months ended 31 August 2013 were disaggregated in order to
 
provide greater clarity on the group’s operating, investing and financing cash flows. Furthermore,
 
employee benefit assets and liabilities were disaggregated in order to present same as separate lines on
 
the statement of financial position. These reclassifications had no impact on previously reported amounts
 
of profit, cash flow, equity, assets or liabilities.
 
 
2. Preparation
 
 
These condensed interim group financial statements were compiled under the supervision of the group
 
financial director, Mr WL Greeff, CA (SA), and were not reviewed or audited by the company’s external
 
auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc.

5. Business combinations
 
 
The group’s most significant business combinations entered into during the period under review included:
 
 
Mpongwe Milling (2009) Ltd (“Mpongwe Milling”)
 
During April 2014, the group, through Zeder, acquired the entire issued share capital of Mpongwe Milling,
 
a maize and wheat mill operating in the Copperbelt province of Zambia, for a Zambian kwacha denominated
 
cash consideration equating to R307,6m. Mpongwe Milling compliments the group’s existing farming
 
operations in Zambia and the acquisition provides the group with an opportunity to expand its product
 
offering across the value chain. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, synergies pertaining to the
 
procurement and marketing functions of the mill and farming operations. Since acquisition,
 
revenue of R56,6m and profit of R1,3m were included in the group’s income statement in respect of same.
 
Had the acqusition been effected at the beginning of the reporting period, additional revenue of R61,1m
 
and profit of R5m would have been recognised by the group.
 
 
Animalzone (Pty) Ltd (“Animalzone”)
 
During July 2014, the group, through Zeder, acquired the remaining 50% shareholding not yet held in
 
Animalzone (a joint venture) for a nominal cash consideration of R1. Animalzone manufactures seed-based
 
pet food and goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, expected synergies and its growth potential.
 
 
Pack 'n Stack Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (“Pack ’n Stack”)
 
During June 2014, the group, through PSG Private Equity, increased its interest in Pack 'n Stack
 
(an associate) from 30% to 50,2% for a purchase consideration of R52m. Pack 'n Stack is involved in
 
the distribution of fast moving consumer goods and compliments the group's existing investments
 
in same. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, the employee corps and expected synergies.
 
Non-controlling interest in Pack ’n Stack was recognised based on their proportional share of
 
identifiable net assets. Since acquisition, revenue of R37,3m and profit of R5,5m were included
 
in the group’s income statement in respect of same. Had the acquisition been effected at the beginning
 
of the reporting period, additional revenue of R139,8m and profit of R21,6m would have been
 
recognised by the group.
 
 
Mutual fund
 
During June 2014, the group invested excess cash in the PSG Money Market Fund (“PSGMMF”) following the
 
capital raising set out in note 9 below. In light of the larger interest held by the group and
 
PSG Konsult managing the fund, the group commenced consolidation of the PSGMMF. The PSGMMF invests
 
in various money market instruments with an average maturity of 90 days or less. Money market
 
instruments issued by ABSA, FirstRand, Nedbank, Standard Bank and the South African government
 
comprised 84% of funds under management at the reporting date.
 
 
Grantleigh business
 
During March 2014, the group, through Curro, acquired the business properties and operations of
 
Grantleigh, a private school in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, for a cash consideration of R30m.
 
 
Waterstone College (Pty) Ltd (“Waterstone”)
 
During June 2014, the group, through Curro, acquired the entire issued share capital of Waterstone,
 
a private school in Gauteng, South Africa, for a cash consideration of R130,8m (of which R30m is
 
deferred) and Curro equity instruments of R1,4m. Goodwill arose in respect of, inter alia, the employee
 
corps and expected synergies.
 
 
The amounts of identifiable net assets acquired, goodwill and non-controlling interests recognised from
 
aforementioned business combinations can be summarised as follows:

Transaction costs relating to the aforementioned business combinations were insignificant and expensed in
 
“marketing, administration and other expenses” in the income statement. The accounting for the
 
aforementioned business combinations are provisional and they did not contain any contingent liabilities,
 
contingent consideration or indemnification asset arrangements. No goodwill is expected to be deductible
 
for income tax purposes. Unless otherwise stated, aforementioned business combinations did not contribute
 
significant amounts of revenue or profit to the group’s income statement since the respective acquisition
 
dates, nor would it have, had the acquisitions been effected at the beginning of the period under review.
 
 
6. Linked investment contracts
 
 
These represent PSG Life clients’ assets held under investment contracts, which are linked to a
 
corresponding liability. The impact on the income statement from the returns on investment contract

9. Corporate actions and subsequent events
 
 
Apart from the transactions set out in note 5 above, the group’s most significant corporate actions
 
included the following:
 
 
• The group has strengthened its capital base for further investing during the period under review.
 
R920m was raised through the issue of new equity by means of a bookbuild during June 2014, and a
 
further R155m through a private placement during August 2014.
 
• The group, through Zeder, disposed of its remaining Capevin Holdings Ltd shares (being classified
 
as non-current assets held for sale) during the period under review for cash proceeds of R193,5m.
 
• The group has made a formal offer to acquire the 51% shareholding it does not already own in
 
Thembeka Capital (RF) Ltd (“Thembeka”) by issuing 1,7 PSG shares for every 1 Thembeka share held.
 
The objective of this transaction is to provide the 51% black-owned Thembeka shareholders with a
 
mechanism to realise the underlying value that has been created since establishment in 2006. The
 
financial effect of same on the group will be negligible.
 
• On 15 September 2014, the proposed scheme of arrangement between Agri Voedsel Ltd (“AVL”) and its
 
shareholders was approved, in terms of which the group, through Zeder, will acquire all the shares
 
in AVL not already held by Zeder. AVL shareholders will receive 16,2 newly issued JSE-listed Zeder
 
ordinary shares for every one unlisted AVL share disposed of in terms of the aforementioned scheme.
 
Upon implementation of the transaction on 20 October 2014, the group, through Zeder, will hold a
 
direct economic interest of 31,7% in Pioneer Foods Group Ltd (“Pioneer Foods”). As a result of
 
aforementioned Zeder share issue, the group’s interest in Zeder will dilute to 29,1%, although the
 
group will continue to exercise control over Zeder through the existing management agreement.
 
• The board of directors of Pioneer Foods previously resolved to unbundle its 100% shareholding in
 
Quantum Foods Ltd (“Quantum Foods”) to Pioneer Foods’ shareholders. Quantum Foods’ ordinary shares
 
listed on the JSE on 6 October 2014 and the unbundling became effective since. Following the
 
implementation of aforementioned transactions pertaining to Pioneer Foods, the group, through Zeder,
 
will hold a direct economic interest of approximately 31% in Quantum Foods.
 
• During June 2014, Curro conducted a rights offer which was fully underwritten by the group. The group
 
followed its rights and the additional investment amounted to R338,6m.
 
 
10. Financial instruments
 
 
10.1 Financial risk factors
 
 
The group’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including currency risk,
 
cash flow and fair value interest rate risk, and price risk), credit risk and liquidity risk.
 
 
These condensed interim group financial statements do not include all financial risk management
 
information and disclosures set out in the annual financial statements, and therefore they should be
 
read in conjunction with the group’s annual financial statements for the year ended 28 February 2014.
 
Risk management continues to be carried out by each major entity within the group under policies
 
approved by the respective boards of directors.
 
 
10.2 Fair value estimation
 
 
The group, through PSG Life Ltd, issues linked investment contracts (note 6) where the value of the
 
policy benefits (i.e. liability) is directly linked to the fair value of the supporting assets, and
 
as such does not expose the group to the market risk relating to fair value movements.
 
 
The information below analyses financial assets and financial liabilities, which are carried at fair
 
value, by level of hierarchy as required by IFRS 13. The different levels in the hierarchy are
 
defined below:
 
 
Level 1
 
The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets is based on quoted market prices at
 
the reporting date. A market is regarded as active if quoted prices are readily and regularly
 
available from an exchange, dealer, broker, industry group, pricing service, or regulatory agency,
 
and those prices represent actual and regularly occurring market transactions on an arm’s length basis.
 
The quoted market price used for financial assets held by the group is the current bid price.
 
 
Level 2
 
Financial instruments that trade in markets that are not considered to be active but are valued (using
 
valuation techniques) based on quoted market prices, dealer quotations or alternative pricing sources
 
supported by observable inputs are classified within level 2. These include over-the-counter traded
 
derivatives. As level 2 investments include positions that are not traded in active markets and/or
 
are subject to transfer restrictions, valuations may be adjusted to reflect illiquidity and/or non-
 
transferability, which are generally based on available market information. If all significant
 
inputs in determining an instrument’s fair value are observable, the instrument is included in level 2.
 
 
Level 3
 
If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on observable market data, the instrument is
 
included in level 3. Investments classified within level 3 have significant unobservable inputs,
 
as they trade infrequently.
 
 
The fair value of financial assets and liabilities carried at amortised cost approximates their fair
 
value. The fair value of financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value in the statement of
 
financial position can be summarised as follows:

Derivative financial assets, equity securities, debt securities and unit-linked investments, to the
 
extent not being policyholder assets, are all included in “other financial assets” in the statement of
 
financial position, while derivative financial liabilities and third party liabilities arising on
 
consolidation of mutual funds are likewise included in “other financial liabilities”.
 
 
There have been no significant transfers between level 1, 2 or 3 during the period under review, nor
 
were there any significant changes to the valuation techniques and inputs used to determine fair values.
 
Valuation techniques and main inputs used to determine fair value for financial instruments classified as
 
level 2 can be summarised as follows:
 
 
Instrument Valuation technique Main inputs
 
 
Derivative financial Exit price on recognised Not applicable
 
assets and liabilities over-the-counter platforms
 
Debt securities Valuation model that uses the Bond interest rate curves
 
market inputs (yield of benchmark Issuer credit ratings

linked to the liability, multiplied
 
by the number of units held
 
Third party liabilities Quoted put (exit) price provided by Not applicable - prices
 
arising on consolidation of the fund manager available publicly
 
mutual funds
 
 
Non-current assets held for sale included assets measured at fair value, as set out in note 9, which
 
was either based on the JSE-listed share price or other observable inputs.
 
 
11. Capital commitments
 
 
For the 2014 calendar year, Curro is developing a further 11 education campuses and land banking more
 
than 20 sites for future development. At the reporting date, Curro’s capital expenditure authorised
 
but not yet contracted amounts to R1,3bn.
 
 
12. Segment report
 
 
The group’s classification into seven reportable segments, namely: Capitec, Zeder, PSG Private Equity,
 
Thembeka Capital, Curro, PSG Konsult and PSG Corporate, remains unchanged. These segments represent
 
the major investments of the group. The services offered by PSG Konsult consist of financial advice,
 
stock broking, fund management and insurance, while Curro offers private education services. The other
 
segments offer financing, banking, investing and corporate finance services. All segments operate
 
predominantly in the Republic of South Africa.
 
 
Intersegment income represents income derived from other segments within the group which is recorded
 
at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable for services rendered in the ordinary
 
course of the group’s activities. Intersegment income mainly comprises intergroup management fees
 
charged in terms of the respective management agreements.
 
 
Headline earnings comprise recurring and non-recurring headline earnings. Recurring headline earnings
 
are calculated on a proportional basis, and include the proportional headline earnings of underlying
 
investments, excluding marked-to-market adjustments and one-off items. The result is that investments
 
in which the group holds less than 20% and which are generally not equity accountable in terms of
 
accounting standards, are equity accounted for the purpose of calculating the consolidated recurring
 
headline earnings. Non-recurring headline earnings include one-off gains and losses and
 
marked-to-market fluctuations, as well as the resulting taxation charge on these items.
 
 
Sum-of-the-Parts (“SOTP”) is a key valuation tool used to measure PSG’s performance. In determining
 
SOTP, listed assets and liabilities are valued using quoted market prices, whereas unlisted assets
 
and liabilities are valued using appropriate valuation methods. These values will not necessarily
 
correspond with the values per the statement of financial position since the latter are measured
 
using the relevant accounting standards which include historical cost and the equity accounting
 
method.
 
 
The chief operating decision-maker (the executive committee) evaluates the following information to
 
assess the segments’ performance:
