Residual Debt Services Limited Key Developments

Residual Debt Services Ltd Announces Unaudited Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended March 31, 2016

Residual Debt Services Ltd. announced unaudited earnings results for the six months ended March 31, 2016. The company reported a loss of ZAR 646 million compared to a loss of ZAR 2,787 million for the comparative six months ended 31 March 2015. The bank's loss was an improvement on the forecast loss of ZAR 2,091 million as published in the Offer Information Memorandum on 4 February 2016. The material reasons for the variation to forecast include: a lower actual impairment charge than was forecast due to favourable shorter term variances and a larger than forecast debt counselling book. This partially offsets the lower than forecast actual interest income reflecting the debt counselling book; an actual stronger ZAR than was forecast resulting in lower actual foreign exchanges losses; Lower actual than forecast restructuring costs which are not included up to 31 March 2016 as expected; earlier than expected receipts on previously written off inter group balances.
