*   The 2005 normalised headline earnings per share have been restated to take account of the effect of the R24,1 million cost of the equity instrument offered to Powerhouse in 2005 to take up 25,1% of ATC (Pty) Limited’s shares.
**   The 2005 information has been restated to take account of the effect of adopting SAICA Circular 9/2006 and IFRS on 1 October 2004.
†   The 2002 to 2004 statistics have not been restated to take account of the effect of adopting IFRS and therefore are still in terms of SA GAAP.
°   These ratios have been restated in 2002 to 2007 to take account of the reallocation of the advance payments from inventory and contracts in progress to trade and other payables. (Refer to note 18.)
#   The 2008 percentages have been increased by 1,3% each as a result of the NSN commission now disclosed in operating income, whereas income from NSN was previously disclosed as income from associates.
$   The STC on a special dividend in 2006 and the share buy back in 2004 has been excluded in this calculation as well as abnormal items.
§   There were no net borrowings in 2007 mainly due to Quince being equity accounted.
