A reconciliation of underlying operating profit to profit before tax is provided in note 3 of the condensed financial statements. 2 Free cash flow per share is the net increase in cash and cash equivalents before the effects of acquisitions and disposals of businesses, changes in net debt and dividends paid divided by the net number of shares in issue at year end. 3 ROCE is underlying profit expressed as a percentage of the average capital employed for the year, adjusted for impairments and spend on strategic projects which are not yet in operation. 4 The Group has restated comparative information following the adoption of revised IFRS standards. Full details of the restatements are set out in note 2b of the condensed financial statements. David Hathorn, Mondi Group chief executive, said: "I am pleased to report a record financial performance, driven by our low cost position, exposure to higher growth markets and ongoing focus on operational excellence. While growth in demand for the Group's key products has remained generally subdued, supply-side constraint has been supportive of pricing. It is particularly pleasing to see how well the integration of the businesses acquired in late 2012 has gone, with synergies delivered in line with target. Despite a difficult trading environment, the new business segment of Consumer Packaging has demonstrated its resilience. With order books strengthening in the new year and the structural growth dynamics still very much in place, we remain confident in the future development of this business. A further priority in 2013 was the successful development of the various capital expenditure projects initiated over the past two years. It is again pleasing to report that a number of these were delivered during the year, all within budget. The projects that are still in progress remain within budget and on target for their scheduled completion dates over the coming two years. The trading environment in the Group's main markets remains mixed. The increase in the price of recycled containerboard in the second half of 2013 on solid demand growth is encouraging, and should lend support to our other key containerboard grades. However, price pressure in most virgin paper grades in the second half of 2013 means that we start the new year with lower pricing than the average for 2013. The near-term outlook for pricing is largely dependent on the strength of the European macroeconomic recovery. In this regard it is encouraging to see a recent pick-up in orders in some of our main product segments and we are in discussions with customers on price increases in certain virgin packaging grades. Recent exchange rate volatility in several of the emerging markets in which we operate does create its challenges. However, the Group's positioning as a net exporter from most of these markets typically allows us to benefit from the devaluation of these currencies relative to the euro. We are confident that the ongoing capital investment programme will contribute meaningfully to our performance going forward. Our proven ability to generate strong cash flow through the cycle provides valuable optionality. As such, we remain confident in the Group's ability to continue delivering industry-leading performance."

Any reference to future financial performance included in this announcement has not been reviewed or reported on by the Group's auditors. Overview Mondi delivered a record financial performance in 2013, benefiting from a strong operating performance and the strategic acquisitions completed in the latter part of 2012. Underlying operating profit of €699 million was up 22% on that achieved in 2012. Excluding the effects of acquisitions made in the prior year, underlying operating profit was still up 11%, driven by particularly strong performances from Packaging Paper and the South Africa Division. Return on capital employed (ROCE), a key performance metric for the Group, was 15.3%, a record for the Group despite the dilutive effect of the acquisitions made in 2012. ROCE over the past three years, averaging 14.6%, has been consistently above the Group's through-the-cycle hurdle rate of 13%. The focus over the last year has been on integrating and optimising the significant acquisitions made towards the end of 2012 and delivering the major capital projects initiated over the past two years. Excellent progress has been made in this regard, with synergy targets delivered, a number of the capital projects having been completed in the latter part of 2013, and the remaining projects on track for completion within budget and on schedule over the next two years. The Packaging Paper business was the standout performer, benefiting from higher average pricing in all key grades and good volume growth. The downstream Fibre Packaging business was challenged by rising paper prices, but generally made good progress in recovering margins. The Uncoated Fine Paper business continued to deliver strong results despite the structural demand decline seen in mature western European markets, a testament to the business' superior cost and market positioning. The South Africa Division made very good progress during the year and is now delivering well in excess of the Group's 13% through-the-cycle hurdle rate. The Group benefited from currency weakness in certain of the emerging markets in which it operates, most significantly in the South Africa Division from the rand's devaluation relative to the euro and US dollar. The strong culture of continuous productivity improvement, relentless focus on cost management and the benefits of restructuring activities completed during the year ensured that fixed cost increases were contained to well below inflationary levels. The Group remains strongly cash generative with net debt reducing to €1,621 million, compared to €1,872 million at 31 December 2012, notwithstanding the €405 million (2012:€294 million) invested in capital expenditure projects during the year. Cash generated from operating activities exceeded €1 billion for the first time. Underlying earnings of 95 euro cents per share grew 37% compared to 2012, with higher finance charges offset by a lower effective tax rate and reduced non-controlling interest charges. We continue to refine our product and geographic mix in line with our strategic focus. Our emphasis is on growing our packaging interests, which currently account for around 70% of the Group's revenues, while at the same time continuing to invest appropriately to maintain and improve the competitiveness of our uncoated fine paper business. Within the broader packaging sphere, we see greater opportunities to develop those segments offering exposure to consumer related packaging. This includes both our Consumer Packaging business, and the corrugated packaging value chain. We continue to develop our presence in emerging markets, which offer us inherent cost and growth benefits, while recognising in some areas, most notably Consumer Packaging, that there are also opportunities to develop and leverage our competencies in mature markets. Overall, approximately 62% of the Group's net operating assets and 51% of revenue by destination are currently in emerging markets. The Boards are recommending payment of a final dividend of 26.45 euro cents per share, bringing the total dividend for the year to 36 euro cents per share, an increase of 29% on 2012.

The average benchmark selling price for recycled containerboard was 4% higher than the comparable prior year period, and by December was 14% up on the same stage in the prior year, with increases being implemented at various stages throughout the year. Price increases were driven by reasonable demand growth supported by limited net capacity additions, with new capacity brought on stream during the year largely offset by closures. Selling prices for the virgin containerboard grades increased modestly over the first half of the year before coming under some pressure during the second half. At year-end benchmark selling prices were around 2% lower than the average levels during the year. The price weakness in the second half was seen as a reaction to increased substitution towards recycled grades due to the abnormally high price differential that developed between virgin and recycled containerboard grades, competition from imports due to the weaker US dollar and an increase in supply as producers converted production from less profitable grades. The price differential has now reduced to levels towards the lower half of the historic trading range, typically seen as supportive of virgin containerboard pricing. With improving demand seen in early 2014, discussions are underway with customers around price increases in unbleached kraftliner grades. Kraft paper prices were relatively stable for much of the year while volumes were up on the prior year, supported by stable European markets and strong gains in export markets. As anticipated, there was some price erosion seen towards the end of the fourth quarter and into early 2014 on the back of seasonally weaker demand in Europe and increased competition in key export markets. By the end of the year, average selling prices had declined by around 9% from their highs in mid-2013. It is, however, encouraging to note a recent pick-up in orders. Sack kraft paper price increases are currently under discussion with customers. The uncertain regulatory environment surrounding renewable energy in Poland led to a significant decline in market prices for green energy in the first quarter of the year. As a consequence, the Group recognised an €11 million write down in the value of its existing green energy credits in the first quarter. The lower market prices prevailed throughout the year and income from the sale of green energy credits in the Packaging Paper business was €17 million lower than in 2012 (excluding the impact of the one-off write-down). Input costs were well contained. The cost of paper for recycling was relatively stable throughout the year following a sharp drop in prices seen in the second half of 2012, although there was some regional pressure in Poland following the start-up of new competitor capacity. The average benchmark price was approximately 7% lower than in 2012. Wood costs in central Europe were generally well contained. Following the acquisitions, in Fibre Packaging, of the Duropack corrugated packaging plants in the latter part of 2012, Packaging Paper benefited from the realisation of supply chain synergies. A strong operating performance and significant productivity improvements, most notably in Syktyvkar, ensured that increases in fixed costs were contained well within inflation.

Corrugated packaging benefited from higher sales volumes and higher prices, although margins were squeezed by the lag in passing on increasing paper input costs to customers, currency effects and aggressive competitor activity in certain markets. The business benefited from the successful integration of the acquisitions of the Duropack corrugated plants in Germany and the Czech Republic in the latter part of 2012. Industrial bags continued to deliver solid results. Selling prices and paper input costs were at similar levels to 2012, while the business realised the benefits of its restructuring activities, mainly in western Europe, with fixed costs reducing significantly compared to 2012. Sales volumes increased with good demand in Russia and the CIS as well as in Africa, Middle East and north and central America. Sales volumes in Europe were marginally down on the previous year. The weaker export currencies relative to the euro had a negative impact on margins. The coatings business experienced volume declines and margin pressures, mainly due to weak demand in the industrial and automotive markets and increased competitor activity in the main European markets. Europe & International - Consumer Packaging € million Year Year Six months Six months ended 31 ended 31 ended 31 ended 31 December December December December 2013 2012 2013 2012 Segment revenue 1,153 502 571 352 Underlying EBITDA 129 45 63 30 Underlying operating profit 74 19 35 9 Underlying operating profit 6.4% 3.8% 6.1% 2.6% margin Special items (13) (11) - (11) Capital expenditure 56 28 32 21 Net segment assets 855 872 ROCE - adjusted 9.1% 10.8% ROCE for 2012 has been adjusted to exclude one-off costs related to the acquisition of Nordenia. The benefits of the acquisition of Nordenia in October 2012 are reflected in the increase in underlying operating profit of €55 million to €74 million. On a pro-forma basis, assuming Nordenia was acquired at the beginning of 2012, and excluding the effects of acquisition accounting, the underlying operating profit of the combined business was in line with the prior year, with synergy gains offset by a weaker trading performance, the impact of some one-off costs, and higher fixed costs. Synergies related to the Nordenia acquisition of €16 million were realised during the year, well on track to achieve the targeted €20 million in 2014. One-off costs of €5 million were incurred in achieving these synergies. Sales volumes in the commoditised segments of the films business were lower than the previous year. With focus on higher value added products, it is pleasing to see volumes for fully converted packaging products held up well, up 2%, with good performances from the emerging European and north American operations. It is encouraging to note a pick-up in order intake in early 2014 following a weak finish to 2013. An increase in fixed costs, excluding synergy effects, due in part to costs incurred on new product launches and a new plant start-up further impacted the underlying result. The closure of the Lindlar operation and redirection of production to existing Consumer Packaging facilities in Germany and Hungary and to the Fibre Packaging business in the Czech Republic was completed.

Sales volumes in uncoated fine paper were around 1.5% down on the prior year, reflecting mainly the effects of the decision to restructure the Neusiedler mill. In May 2013, Mondi announced plans to restructure the non-integrated Neusiedler operation to improve the competitiveness of the mill. The restructuring was successfully completed and the mill is now focused on production of speciality paper grades enjoying higher margins. Selling prices were largely unchanged in the first part of the year compared to the levels at the end of 2012, but decreased in the second half in the face of continuing weak demand and the introduction of additional capacity from industry competitors in an already oversupplied market. Average benchmark selling prices for uncoated fine paper were around 2% lower than the prior year, while prices at the year-end were around 1% below the average for the year. Input costs increased, with higher wood costs in Ruzomberok, higher pulp input costs at the unintegrated Neusiedler mill in Austria and higher gas and transportation costs in Syktyvkar. In Syktyvkar, wood costs reduced as a result of a number of cost reduction initiatives. On average, own wood costs in Syktyvkar have decreased by more than 10% from 2012 average costs. Profit improvement initiatives and productivity improvements more than offset inflationary fixed cost increases, enabling the business to realise a net reduction in fixed costs compared to 2012. South Africa Division (Restated) (Restated) € million Year ended Year ended Six months Six months 31 31 ended 31 ended 31 December December Change December December Change 2013 2012 % 2013 2012 % Segment revenue 624 702 (11) 299 354 (16) Underlying EBITDA 135 125 8 68 69 (1) Underlying operating 93 69 35 49 40 23 profit Underlying operating 14.9% 9.8% 16.4% 11.3% profit margin Special items (11) 6 7 - Capital expenditure 52 43 38 26 Net segment assets 622 821 ROCE 16.0% 9.6% The South Africa Division delivered a very strong performance. Underlying operating profit was €93 million, an increase of 35%, and ROCE was 16.0%, despite net fair value gains from the revaluation of the Division's forestry assets being around €23 million lower than those realised in the prior year. The business benefited from higher domestic selling prices, good domestic containerboard volume growth, and improved export margins due to the weaker South African rand coupled with higher average export pulp prices. In May 2013, the closure of one of the two newsprint machines located in Merebank was announced as a result of the continued decline in demand for newsprint in South Africa. The machine stopped production with effect from 1 July 2013. The South African rand came under significant pressure during the year, closing the year more than 30% weaker against the euro than in December 2012. The Division generates approximately 40% of its revenue from exports, with a predominantly rand cost base and thus benefited from the weakening currency. The Division has continued to invest in the modernisation of its forestry operations, with a focus on silviculture and harvesting in the current year. The benefits of these investments, further productivity improvements and strong cost management ensured that fixed costs were contained to well within inflationary levels. Tax The Group's underlying effective tax rate of 17% is below that of the prior year, and reflects a favourable underlying profit mix, the continued benefits arising from the utilisation of certain tax incentives available to the Group, most notably in Poland, and further tax incentives received during the year related to the recovery boiler investment project in Slovakia. Non-controlling interests The non-controlling interest charge of €28 million is €7 million lower than the previous year, primarily due to the impact of the acquisition of the remaining minority interest in Mondi Swiecie during the first half of 2012. Special items Special items are those items of financial performance that the Group believes should be separately disclosed to assist in the understanding of the underlying financial performance achieved by the Group and its businesses. These items are considered to be material either in nature or in amount. The net special item charge of €87 million before tax, the cash component of which amounted to €20 million, included the following: * Closure of Consumer Packaging's Lindlar operation in Germany (€13 million); * Closure of the Newsprint machine in Merebank, South Africa and related restructuring activities (€18 million); * Impairment of Uncoated Fine Paper's Neusiedler mill in Austria and related restructuring costs (€51 million); * Write-down of unutilised assets in Uncoated Fine Paper's Syktyvkar mill in Russia (€9 million); * Gain from the sale of land in South Africa Division (€7 million); and * Further restructuring and impairment costs in the Industrial Bags segment of Fibre Packaging in France and Mexico (€3 million). Further detail is provided in note 5 of the condensed financial statements. After taking special items into consideration, earnings of €386 million (79.8 euro cents per share) were 59% higher than the previous year (€242 million, 50.1 euro cents per share). Cash flow The Group is strongly cash generative with EBITDA of €1,068 million, reflecting an increase of 15% compared to the prior year. The Group generated €1,036 million of cash from operations (2012: €849 million) after taking into account a net increase in working capital of €27 million. Working capital as a percentage of revenue was 11%, in line with the target of 10-12% of turnover, and represents a reduction on the prior year comparable figure of 11.9% (adjusted for acquisitions). The strong cash flow generation was applied to fund the Group's capital expenditure of €405 million, the payment of finance charges of €124 million, and the payment of dividends to holders of non-controlling interests of €60 million and to shareholders of €138 million. The net cash flow generated by the Group of €174 million was applied to reduce the Group's net debt. Capital investments Capital expenditure of €405 million was €111 million higher than the prior year as expenditure on a number of the Group's previously announced energy and debottlenecking investments ramped up. The capital expenditure to depreciation ratio was 113%. The major strategic investments initiated over the past two years and completed during 2013 include the rebuild of the bark boiler at the Syktyvkar uncoated fine paper and containerboard mill in Russia, a new recovery boiler at the Group's Frantschach kraft paper mill in Austria, a recovery boiler economiser and turbine at the Stambolijski kraft paper mill in Bulgaria and a new steam turbine at the Richards Bay pulp and containerboard mill in South Africa. With the exception of the bark boiler, completed in the first half of 2013, these projects were completed in the second half of the year, with the benefits of reduced energy costs, improved efficiencies and improved electricity self-sufficiency expected to be realised from 2014 onwards. In total, approximately €140 million has been invested in these, and other smaller energy related projects. Early in 2013, the construction of a 150,000 tonne bleached kraft paper machine at the Steti kraft paper mill in the Czech Republic was approved. This will enable the mill to integrate its remaining open market pulp production on site, providing further growth opportunities for this business. The €70 million project is expected to be completed in the first half of 2014. Good progress is being made on the €30 million investment in a 100,000 tonne pulp dryer in the Syktyvkar mill and the project is on schedule for completion in the second half of 2014. In the first half of the year, a €128 million project to replace the recovery boiler at the Ruzomberok uncoated fine paper mill in Slovakia commenced. Completion is scheduled towards the end of 2014. The project will reduce the mill's environmental footprint and improve its overall cost position. Some of the benefits from this project also result from avoiding otherwise essential stay-in-business capital expenditure. In the second half of the year, the Boards approved a €166 million investment at the Mondi Swiecie containerboard mill in Poland, bringing forward the planned replacement of the recovery boiler and the mill's coal fired boilers. The investment will result in a reduction of ongoing maintenance costs, an improvement in overall energy efficiency and a reduction in CO2e emissions. The project is expected to be completed towards the end of 2015. These investments are all proceeding according to schedule. As a consequence of the major capital projects approved during 2013, coupled with some delay in the expected spend on previously approved projects, capital expenditure is expected to increase to around €500 million per annum, on average, over the next two years. Treasury and borrowings Net debt at 31 December of €1,621 million decreased by €251 million from 31 December 2012 as a consequence of the Group's strong cash flow generation and currency effects. The weakening of a number of the emerging market currencies in which the Group's debt is denominated resulted in a net currency gain of €59 million being recorded. Gearing reduced to 36.3% at the end of 2013, down from 39.5% at the end of 2012. The net debt to 12 month trailing EBITDA ratio was 1.5 times, well within the Group's key financial covenant requirement of 3.5 times. Finance charges of €115 million were €5 million higher than the previous year, with higher average net debt as a consequence of the acquisitions made at the end of 2012 offset by a lower effective interest rate. Mondi's public credit ratings, first issued in March 2010, were again reaffirmed during the year at BBB- (Standard and Poor's) and Baa3 (Moody's Investors Service). The Group actively manages its liquidity risk by ensuring it maintains diversified sources of funding and debt maturities. The weighted average maturity of the Eurobonds and committed debt facilities was 3.7 years at 31 December 2013. At the end of the year €792 million of the Group's €2.5 billion committed debt facilities remained undrawn. Dividend The Boards' aim is to offer shareholders long-term dividend growth within a targeted dividend cover range of two to three times over the business cycle. Given the Group's strong financial position and the Boards' stated objective to increase distributions to shareholders through the ordinary dividend, the Boards have recommended an increase in the final dividend. The Boards of Mondi Limited and Mondi plc have recommended a final dividend of 26.45 euro cents per share (2012: 19.1 euro cents per share), payable on 22 May 2014 to shareholders on the register on 25 April 2014. Together with the interim dividend of 9.55 euro cents per share, paid on 17 September 2013, this amounts to a total dividend for the year of 36.0 euro cents per share. In 2012, the total dividend for the year was 28.0 euro cents per share. The final dividend is subject to the approval of the shareholders of Mondi Limited and Mondi plc at the respective annual general meetings scheduled for 14 May 2014. Outlook The trading environment in the Group's main markets remains mixed. The increase in the price of recycled containerboard in the second half of 2013 on solid demand growth is encouraging, and should lend support to the other key containerboard grades. However, price pressure in most virgin paper grades in the second half of 2013 means that the new year started with lower pricing than the average for 2013. The near-term outlook for pricing is largely dependent on the strength of the European macroeconomic recovery. In this regard it is encouraging to see a recent pick-up in orders in some of the Group's main product segments and discussions are underway with customers on price increases in certain virgin packaging grades. Recent exchange rate volatility in several of the emerging markets in which the Group operates does create some challenges. However, the Group's positioning as a net exporter from most of these markets typically allows it to benefit from the devaluation of these currencies relative to the euro. The Group is confident that its ongoing capital investment programme will contribute meaningfully to Mondi's performance going forward. Mondi's proven ability to generate strong cash flows through the cycle provides valuable optionality. As such, the Group remains confident in its ability to continue delivering industry-leading performance. Principal risks and uncertainties It is in the nature of Mondi's business that the Group is exposed to risks and uncertainties which may have an impact on future performance and financial results, as well as on its ability to meet certain social and environmental objectives. The executive committee, mandated by the Boards, has established a Group-wide system of internal control to manage Group risks. The Group-wide system, which complies with corporate governance codes in South Africa and the UK, supports the Boards in discharging their responsibility for ensuring that the wide range of risks associated with Mondi's diverse international operations is effectively managed. Continuous monitoring of risk and control processes across all key risk areas provides the basis for regular reports to management, the executive committee and the Boards. On an annual basis, the executive committee, the audit committee and the Boards conduct a formal systematic review of the Group's most significant risks and uncertainties and the monitoring of and response to those risks. These risks are assessed against pre-determined risk tolerance limits, established by the Boards, taking both the likelihood and severity of the risk factors into consideration. The risk management framework addresses all significant strategic, sustainability, financial, operational and compliance-related risks which could undermine the Group's ability to achieve its business objectives in a sustainable manner. The risk management framework is designed to be flexible, to ensure that it remains relevant at all levels of the business given the diversity of the Group's locations, markets and production processes; and dynamic, to ensure that it remains current and responsive to changing business conditions. The directors are satisfied that the Group has effective systems and controls in place to manage its key risks within the risk tolerance levels established by the Boards. Competitive environment in which Mondi operates The industry in which Mondi operates is highly competitive and selling prices are subject to significant volatility. New capacity additions are usually in large increments which, combined with product substitution towards lighter weight products, electronic substitution, alternative packaging solutions and increasing environmental considerations, have a significant impact on the supply-demand balance and hence on market prices. The Group monitors industry developments in terms of changes in capacity as well as trends and developments in its product markets and potential substitutes. Mondi's strategic focus on low-cost production in growing markets with consistent investment in its operating capacity ensures that the Group remains competitive. Mondi invests in research and development activities to improve existing processes and to identify new markets and new products. The locations in which the Group operates The Group operates in a number of geographical locations in countries with differing levels of political, economic and legal systems. The Group continues to actively monitor and adapt to changes in the environments in which it operates. Management engages in regular formal and informal interaction with the authorities to ensure they remain abreast of new developments. Thorough country risk assessments are conducted and return requirements adjusted to take country risk into consideration. The Group's geographical diversity and decentralised management structure, utilising local resources in countries in which it operates, reduces exposure to any specific jurisdiction. The Boards have established limits on exposure to any particular geographic environment and new investments are subject to rigorous strategic and commercial evaluation. Capital intensive operations Mondi operates large facilities, often in remote locations. The ongoing safety and sustainable operation of all its facilities is critical to the success of the Group. The management systems in place ensure ongoing monitoring of all operations to ensure they meet the requisite standards and performance requirements. The Group has adequate insurance in place to cover material property damage, business interruption and liability risks. A structured maintenance programme is in place under the auspices of the Group technical director. Emergency preparedness and response procedures are in place and subject to periodic drills. Cost and availability of a sustainable supply of fibre Paper for recycling and wood account for approximately one-third of input costs. It is the Group's objective to acquire fibre from sustainable sources and to avoid the use of any illegal or controversial supply. International market prices are constantly monitored and, where possible, cost pass through mechanisms are in place with customers. The Group maintains strong forestry management teams in Russia and South Africa to actively monitor environmental influences impacting its owned sources of fibre. Mondi's relatively high levels of integration and access to own FSCTM certified wood in Russia and South Africa serve to mitigate this risk. All the Group's mills have chain-of-custody certificates in place ensuring that wood procured is from non-controversial sources. Cost of energy and related input costs Energy and related input costs comprise approximately a third of the Group's variable costs. Increasing energy costs, and the consequential impact thereof on both chemical and transport costs, may impact profit margins. Energy usage levels, emission levels and usage of renewable energy are monitored and energy costs are benchmarked against external sources. The Group continues to invest in energy infrastructure at its key operating facilities in order to improve energy efficiency and electricity self-sufficiency as well as to reduce its environmental footprint. Attraction and retention of key skills and talent The complexity of operations and geographic diversity of the Group is such that high-quality, experienced employees are required in all locations. The Group monitors its staff turnover levels, diversity and training activities and conducts regular employee surveys. Appropriate reward and retention strategies are in place to attract and retain talent across the organisation. At more senior levels, these include a share based incentive scheme. Employee and contractor safety The Group's employees work in potentially dangerous environments where hazards are ever-present and must be managed. The Group engages in extensive safety communication sessions, involving employees and contractors, at all operations. The Nine Safety Rules to Live By, applied across the Group, are integral to the safety strategy. Operations conduct statutory safety committee meetings where management and employees are represented. A risk-based approach underpins all safety and health programmes. All business units and operations are required to have safety improvement plans in place. Governance risks The Group operates in a number of legal jurisdictions and non-compliance with legal and governance requirements in these jurisdictions could expose the Group to significant risk if not adequately managed. The Group operates a comprehensive training and compliance programme, supported by regular self-certification and reporting as well as its confidential reporting hotline for all stakeholders, Speakout. Financial risks Mondi's trading and financing activities expose the Group to financial risks that, if left unmanaged, could adversely impact current or future earnings. These risks relate to the currencies in which the Group conducts its activities, interest rate and liquidity risks as well as exposure to customer credit risk. Going concern The Group's business activities, together with the factors likely to affect its future development, performance and position, the most significant risks and the Group's related management and mitigating actions are set out above. The financial position of the Group, its cash flows, liquidity position and borrowing facilities are described in the condensed financial statements. Mondi's geographical spread, product diversity and large customer base mitigate potential risks of customer or supplier liquidity issues. Ongoing initiatives by management in implementing profit improvement initiatives which include ongoing investment in its operations, plant optimisation, cost-cutting, and restructuring and rationalisation activities have consolidated the Group's leading cost position in its chosen markets. Working capital levels and capital expenditure programmes are strictly monitored and controlled. The Group meets its funding requirements from a variety of sources as more fully described in note 11 of the condensed financial statements. The availability of some of these facilities is dependent on the Group meeting certain financial covenants all of which have been complied with. Mondi had €792 million of undrawn committed debt facilities as at 31 December 2013 which should provide sufficient liquidity in the medium term. The Group's debt facilities have maturity dates of between 1 and 12 years, with a weighted average maturity of 3.7 years. The Group's forecasts and projections, taking account of reasonably possible changes in trading performance, including an assessment of the current macroeconomic environment indicate that the Group should be able to operate well within the level of its current facilities and related covenants. The directors have reviewed the overall Group strategy, the budget for 2014 and subsequent years, considered the assumptions contained in the budget and reviewed the critical risks which may impact the Group's performance. After making such enquiries, the directors are satisfied that the Group remains solvent and has adequate liquidity in order to meet its obligations and continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, the Group continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparing this report. Directors' responsibility statement These financial statements have been prepared under the supervision of the Group chief financial officer, Andrew King CA (SA), and have been audited in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa 2008 and the UK Companies Act 2006.

The movement in non-controlling interests as a direct result of the movement in other reserves for the year ended 31 December 2013 was a decrease in non-controlling interests related to total comprehensive income for the year of €11 million (2012: increase of €7 million). 2 Statutory reserves consist of the merger reserve of €259 million (2012: €259 million) and other sundry reserves in deficit of €4 million (2012: deficit of € 6 million). Notes to the condensed combined and consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2013 1 Basis of preparation The Group has two separate legal parent entities, Mondi Limited and Mondi plc, which operate under a dual listed company (DLC) structure. The substance of the DLC structure is such that Mondi Limited and its subsidiaries, and Mondi plc and its subsidiaries, operate together as a single economic entity through a sharing agreement, with neither parent entity assuming a dominant role. Accordingly, Mondi Limited and Mondi plc are reported on a combined and consolidated basis as a single reporting entity. The Group's condensed combined and consolidated financial statements included in this preliminary announcement have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and contain the information required by IAS 34, `Interim Financial Reporting'. There are no differences for the Group in applying IFRS as issued by the IASB and IFRS as adopted by the European Union (EU) and therefore the Group also complies with Article 4 of the EU IAS Regulation. The Group has also complied with the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Reporting Pronouncements as issued by the Reporting Standards Council of South Africa. The condensed combined and consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis as set out above. The financial information set out above does not constitute the Company's statutory accounts for the years ended 31 December 2013, 2012 or 2011 but is derived from those accounts. Statutory accounts for 2011 and 2012 have been delivered to the registrar of companies, and those for 2013 will be delivered in due course. The auditors have reported on those accounts; their reports were (i) unqualified, (ii) did not include a reference to any matters to which the auditors drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and (iii) did not contain a statement under section 498 (2) or (3) of the UK Companies Act 2006. Copies of their unqualified auditors' reports on the Integrated report and financial statements 2013 as well as the condensed combined and consolidated financial statements are available for inspection at the Mondi Limited and Mondi plc registered offices. These condensed combined and consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis, except for the fair valuing of financial instruments and forestry assets. 2a Accounting policies The same accounting policies, methods of computation and presentation have been followed in the preparation of the condensed combined and consolidated financial statements as were applied in the preparation of the Group's annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2012, except as set out below. Standards and Interpretations early adopted by the Group There were no Standards or Interpretations early adopted by the Group in the current year. An amendment to IAS 36 - Impairment of Assets which clarifies certain disclosure requirements, was adopted with effect from 1 January 2013. Standards, amendments to published Standards and Interpretation effective during 2013 The Group has adopted the following Standards and amendments to published Standards during the current year, and their impact on the Group's results are detailed in note 2b: * IFRS 10 - Consolidated Financial Statements * IFRS 11 - Joint Arrangements * IAS 19 (revised) - Employee Benefits The following Standards, amendments to published Standards and Interpretation which the Group has adopted during the current year, had no significant impact on the Group's results except for the addition of certain disclosures: * IFRS 1 - First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards * IFRS 7 - Financial Instruments: Disclosure * IFRS 12 - Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities * IFRS 13 - Fair Value Measurement * IAS 1 - Presentation of Financial Statements * IAS 16 - Property, Plant and Equipment * IAS 27 - Separate Financial Statements * IAS 28 - Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures * IAS 32 - Financial Instruments: Presentation * IAS 34 - Interim Financial Reporting * IFRIC 20 - Stripping Costs in the Production Phase of a Surface Mine 2b Restatement of comparative information IFRS 10 and IFRS 11 broadened the concept of control and eliminated the option of proportionate consolidation for joint ventures, except in certain circumstances. The impact of these Standards has been that Mondi Shanduka Newsprint Proprietary Limited has been consolidated whilst Aylesford Newsprint Limited has been accounted for using the equity method up to the date of sale in 2012. Comparative information has been restated. IAS 19 (revised) impacted the measurement of the various components representing movements in the defined benefit pension obligation and associated disclosures. As the Group has always recognised actuarial gains and losses immediately, the Group's total obligation was unchanged. This Standard has been adopted with effect from 1 January 2012 as it was impractical to complete revised actuarial valuations prior to that date. Following the replacement of expected returns on plan assets with a net finance cost in the combined and consolidated income statement, the profit for the period was reduced and accordingly other comprehensive income increased in 2012. Comparative information for the year ended 31 December 2012 has been restated.

All other financial liabilities are estimated by discounting the future contractual cash flows at the current market interest rate that is available to the Group for similar financial instruments. 12 Retirement benefits All assumptions related to the Group's defined benefit schemes and post-retirement medical plan liabilities were re-assessed individually for the year ended 31 December 2013. The net retirement benefit liability decreased by €42 million mainly due to changes in assumptions and an exchange rate impact of €22 million. The assets backing the defined benefit scheme liabilities reflect their market values as at 31 December 2013. Any movements in the assumptions have been recognised as a remeasurement in the condensed combined and consolidated statement of comprehensive income. 13 Consolidated cash flow analysis (a) Reconciliation of profit before tax to cash generated from operations (Restated) € million 2013 2012 Profit before tax 499 368 Depreciation and amortisation 365 349 Impairment of tangible and intangible assets (not included 4 4 in special items) Share-based payments 11 10 Non-cash effect of special items 60 91 Net finance costs 115 110 Net (profit)/loss from associates (2) 5 Decrease in provisions and net retirement benefits (25) (22) Increase in inventories (7) (16) Increase in operating receivables (14) (38) Decrease in operating payables (6) (29) Fair value gains on forestry assets (17) (40) Felling costs 55 66 Profit on disposal of tangible and intangible assets (2) (4) Other adjustments - (5) Cash generated from operations 1,036 849 (b) Cash and cash equivalents (Restated) € million 2013 2012 Cash and cash equivalents per combined and consolidated 130 56 statement of financial position Bank overdrafts included in short-term borrowings (66) (93) Net cash and cash equivalents per combined and consolidated 64 (37) statement of cash flows The fair value of cash and cash equivalents approximate the carrying values presented.

The following table shows the amounts available to draw down on the Group's committed loan facilities: € million 2013 2012 Expiry date In one year or less 42 27 In more than one year 750 735 Total credit available 792 762 14 Capital commitments (Restated) € million 2013 2012 Contracted for but not provided 366 129 Approved, not yet contracted for 625 589 These capital commitments relate to the following categories of non-current non-financial assets: (Restated) € million 2013 2012 Intangible assets 4 9 Property, plant and equipment 987 709 Total capital commitments 991 718 The expected maturity of these capital commitments is: (Restated) € million 2013 2012 Within one year 544 445 One to two years 392 263 Two to five years 55 10 Total capital commitments 991 718 Capital commitments are based on capital projects approved to date and the budget approved by the Boards. Major capital projects still require further approval before they commence. These capital commitments are expected to be financed from existing cash resources and borrowing facilities. 15 Contingent liabilities Contingent liabilities comprise aggregate amounts as at 31 December 2013 of €25 million (2012: €15 million) in respect of loans and guarantees given to banks and other third parties. No acquired contingent liabilities have been recorded in the Group's combined and consolidated statement of financial position for both years presented. 16 Financial instruments' fair value disclosures Financial instruments that are measured in the combined and consolidated statement of financial position at fair value or where the fair value of financial instruments have been disclosed in notes to the combined and consolidated financial statements require disclosure of fair value measurements by level based on the following fair value measurement hierarchy: * level 1 - quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities; * level 2 - inputs other than quoted prices included within level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (that is, as prices) or indirectly (that is, derived from prices); and * level 3 - inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (that is, unobservable inputs). The fair values of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market (for example, over-the-counter derivatives) are determined using standard valuation techniques. These valuation techniques maximise the use of observable market data where available and rely as little as possible on Group specific estimates. The significant inputs required to fair value all of the Group's financial instruments are either quoted prices or are observable. The Group only holds level 1 and 2 financial instruments and therefore does not hold any financial instruments categorised as level 3 financial instruments. There have also been no transfers of assets or liabilities between levels of the fair value hierarchy during the year. Specific valuation methodologies used to value financial instruments include: * the fair values of interest rate swaps and foreign exchange contracts are calculated as the present value of expected future cash flows based on observable yield curves and exchange rates; * the Group's commodity price derivatives are fair valued by independent third parties, who in turn calculate the fair values as the present value of expected future cash flows based on observable market data; and * other techniques, including discounted cash flow analysis, are used to determine the fair values of other financial instruments. The only assets or liabilities measured at fair value on level 3 of the fair value measurement hierarchy represent forestry assets. Refer to note 10 for more details on fair value measurement. Except as detailed in the following table, the directors consider that the carrying values of financial assets and financial liabilities recorded at amortised cost in the combined and consolidated financial statements are approximately equal to their fair values.

These transactions are under terms that are no less favourable than those arranged with third parties. These transactions, in total, are not considered to be significant. The Group has a related party relationship with its equity accounted investees. Transactions between Mondi Limited, Mondi plc and their respective subsidiaries, which are related parties, have been eliminated on consolidation and are not disclosed in this note. With effect from 3 May 2013, Cyril Ramaphosa ceased to be a director of Mondi Limited and Mondi plc. As a result, all transactions with the Shanduka Group Proprietary Limited, in which Mr Ramaphosa held a 29.6% interest, and its subsidiaries are no longer classified as related party transactions from that date. Other than the paragraph above, there have been no significant changes to the related parties as disclosed in note 39 of the Group's annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2012. 18 Events occurring after 31 December 2013 With the exception of the proposed final dividend for 2013, included in note 9, there have been no material reportable events since 31 December 2013.
