Trading Statement

Shareholders are advised that  the Naspers group  is presently finalising  its 
interim report for the six months to 30 September 2012.

We expect core headline earnings  per share to be  between 10% and 20%  higher 
than the comparable  period's 921  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.


      It is expected that  earnings per share for  the six months to  30 
      September 2012 will be  between 110% and  120% higher compared  to 
      the prior  period's  498  cents,  mainly as  a  consequence  of  a 
      non-recurring book profit flowing from's sale of a portion
      of its shares in Facebook.


      Headline earningsper  share  for the  period  are expected  to  be 
      between 15% and 25% higher than the prior period's 692 cents.

Further details will be provided in the interim report, due to be released  on 
or about  27  November  2012.  Financial information  on  which  this  trading 
statement is  based has  not been  reviewed or  reported on  by the  company's
