Shareholders are advised that the Naspers group (“the group”) is presently finalising its provisional report for the year ended 31 March 2016. Shareholders should note that the group’s results are presented in US dollars from the financial year ended 31 March 2016.

We expect core headline earnings per share to be between 15% (38 US cents) and 20% (51 US cents) higher than the comparable period’s 255 US cents. Shareholders are reminded that the board considers core headline earnings an appropriate indicator of the sustainable operating performance of the group, as it adjusts for non-recurring and non-operational items.

Headline earnings per share for the year is expected to increase by between 0% (0 US cent) and 5% (8 US cents) from the prior period’s 167 US cents.
