* The ordinary shareholders of Reunert Limited received a special dividend of R510 million (R2,50 per share)   on 29 October 1999. This payment has had a major distorting effect on the comparability of the results of   the current and prior years. Had this dividend been paid on 29 October 1998, the after-tax effect,   calculated using an average interest rate of 16%, would have been to reduce headline earnings of   R274,2 million by R58,3 million.
