Santam Ltd. Declares Final Dividend for the Year 2014, Payable on March 30, 2015; Reports Audited Consolidated Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014

The board of Santam Ltd. has declared a final dividend of 480.00000 cents per share compared to 433 cents per share in 2013. The last day to trade ‘cum dividend’ will be 20 March 2015. The shares will trade ‘ex dividend’ from the commencement of business on 23 March 2015. The record date will be 27 March 2015, and the payment date will be 30 March 2015. The company reported audited consolidated financial results for the year ended 31 December 2014. For the year, the company reported net premium of ZAR 17,635 million compared to ZAR 16,900 million for the last year. Investment income was ZAR 807 million compared to ZAR 782 million for the last year. Profit before tax was ZAR 2,327 million compared to ZAR 1,473 million for the last year. Profit attributable to equity holders of the company was ZAR 1,579 million compared to ZAR 1,120 million for the last year. Diluted earnings per share were 1,372 cents compared to 973 cents for the last year. Net cash from operating activities was ZAR 1,930 million compared to ZAR 1,277 million for the last year, increased mainly due to improved underwriting results. Purchase of equipment was ZAR 69 million compared to ZAR 36 million for the last year. Purchase of intangible assets was ZAR 102 million compared to ZAR 71 million for the last year. Headline earnings increased by 40% compared to 2013. The earnings were negatively impacted by an impairment of R69 million in the Indwe investment.

Santam Ltd. Provides Earnings Guidance for Year Ended December 31, 2014

Santam Ltd. expected its earnings per share (EPS) as well as its headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the year ended 31 December 2014 to be between 35% (EPS 1,326 cents; HEPS 1,395 cents) to 45% (EPS 1,424 cents; HEPS 1,498 cents) above those reported for the prior period (EPS 982 cents; HEPS 1,033 cents). The increase in HEPS and EPS has been driven by a significant improvement in underwriting results compared to the comparative period in 2013. The improvement in underwriting results was influenced by improved contributions from all business units including a substantial turnaround in the crop insurance business. However, underwriting conditions remain challenging in South Africa, with continued pressure on claims costs, low GDP growth and a very competitive landscape. The Group's net underwriting margin is expected to be above 8%, exceeding the long term target range of 4% to 6%.

Santam Ltd. announced that it will appoint Tantaswa Fubu as Independent Non-Executive Director. The effective date is January 01, 2015.
