Directors’ responsibility for financial reporting

for the year ended 30 June 2012

The directors of the company are responsible for the maintenance of adequate accounting records and the preparation and integrity of the annual financial statements and related information. The annual financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, the AC 500 standards issued by the Accounting Practices Board and in the manner required by the South African Companies Act, 2008.

The directors are also responsible for the systems of internal control. These are designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance as to the reliability of the financial statements, and to adequately safeguard, verify and maintain accountability for assets, and to prevent and detect material misstatements and losses. The systems are implemented and monitored by suitably trained personnel with an appropriate segregation of authority and duties. Nothing has come to the attention of the directors to indicate that any material breakdown in the functioning of these controls, procedures and systems has occurred during the year under review.

The annual financial statements are prepared on the going concern basis. Nothing has come to the attention of the directors to indicate that the group will not remain a going concern for the foreseeable future.

The abridged annual financial statements, which have been prepared using information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting, set out on pages 90 to 122, are an extract of the audited consolidated annual financial statements. These consolidated annual financial statements are electronically available on the compact disc attached and on the group website at www.imperial.co.za.

The group’s independent external auditors, Deloitte & Touche have confirmed that the abridged annual financial statements are derived from the audited consolidated annual financial statements and their unmodified report appears on page 89.

The abridged annual financial statements were approved by the board of directors and are signed on their behalf by:
