Directors' responsibilities and approval

The Directors are responsible for the maintenance of adequate accounting records and the preparation, integrity and fair presentation of the financial statements of the Company.

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) Accounting Practices Committee, Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council, the JSE Listings Requirements and the requirements of the Companies Act of 2008.

The Directors consider that having applied IFRS in preparing the Company financial statements they have selected the most appropriate accounting policies, consistently applied and supported by reasonable and prudent judgements and estimates, and that all IFRS statements that they consider to be applicable have been followed.

The Directors are satisfied that the information contained in the Company financial statements fairly presents the results of operations for the year and the financial position of the Company at year-end. The Directors prepared the other information included in the Company financial statements and are responsible for both its accuracy and its consistency.

In addition, the Directors are responsible for the Company's system of internal financial control. These are designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance as to the reliability of the financial statements, and to adequately safeguard, verify and maintain accountability of the assets, and to prevent and detect misstatement and loss. Nothing has come to the attention of the Directors to indicate that any material breakdown in the functioning of these controls, procedures and systems has occurred during the year under review.

The Company financial statements have been prepared on the going concern basis, since the Directors have every reason to believe that the Company has adequate resources in place to continue in operation for the foreseeable future, based on forecasts and available cash resources.

The independent auditing firm SizweNtsalubaGobodo Grant Thornton Inc., which was given unrestricted access to all financial records and related data, including minutes of all meetings of shareholders, the Board of Directors and committees of the Board, has audited the Company financial statements. The Directors believe that all representations made to the independent auditors during their audit are valid and appropriate.

The external auditors are responsible for independently auditing and reporting on the Company's annual financial statements. The annual financial statements have been examined by the Company's external auditors and their report is presented on Independent auditor's report.

The annual financial statements set out from Company statement of financial position, which have been prepared on the going concern basis, were approved by the Directors on 29 August 2023 and were signed on their behalf by:

BM Levy
