 Targeting higher margin private sector projects such as low cost housing
 Taking equity share in developments
13
Material issues
MATERIAL ISSUE
 B-BBEE scorecard
CHALLENGE
 To continually strengthen Esorfranki’s B-BBEE position and comply with Construction
Charter requirements essential for securing government and parastatal contracts
RESPONSE AND PROGRESS
 Ownership - in negotiations with potential BEE investor with expected finalisation
in June 2013
 Management - examination of board structure with intention of appointing black female
non-exec by end H1 2014
 Maximise procurement, business development and CSI spends
14
Material issues

CHALLENGE
 Balancing the group’s growth (double construction sector) with liquidity to service
investments in housing and development
RESPONSE & PROGRESS
 Sufficient liquidity and capital to meet business objectives through additional
banking facilities
 Provision of company and institutional guarantees to free up cash retentions
15
Material issues
MATERIAL ISSUE
 Project execution - on time, within budget and to required quality
CHALLENGE
 Ability to start projects efficiently and manage limited senior resources and
volatile labour while ensuring quality and safety
RESPONSE & PROGRESS
 Efficient risk-controlled delivery of quality projects
 Limits of authority depending on size and profile of contracts
 Project team monitors risk, execution, cost and payment from appointment
on monthly basis
 SHEQ compliance continuously monitored within the frameworks of
ISO 9001, 14001 & 18001
16
Material issues
MATERIAL ISSUE
 Skills shortage
CHALLENGE
 Scarce resources undermine delivery and expansion
RESPONSE & PROGRESS
 Creation of attractive employment proposition, a people-centred culture,
skills development programme and succession planning
 Employees are offered bursaries as well as skills training
 LDC employees are trained in a wider range of skills than is required for
the contract for their further empowerment
 In-house accredited training centre based at Germiston workshop
17
Material issues
MATERIAL ISSUE
 SHEQ – impact of safety, health, environment and quality on operations
CHALLENGE
 Potential threat to employees, natural resources, client’s and group’s reputation
through non-compliance
RESPONSE & PROGRESS
 ISO 9001, ISO 14001¹ and ISO 18001 accredited

Material issues
MATERIAL ISSUE
 Past collusive and anti-competitive practices within the industry
CHALLENGE
 To settle all outstanding Competition Commission issues
PROGRESS
 The CC investigation into alleged anti-competitive behaviour in the piling and drilling
markets was referred to the Tribunal following a failed settlement offer. Negotiations have
been reopened post year-end and the board is convinced that the estimated penalty
provision previously allowed in the financial statements will suffice
 During the recent fast track settlement process offered to the construction industry
Esorfranki Limited filed one marker relating to a prescribed offence and will accept an
imposed fine of R115 850
 Esorfranki was further mistakenly implicated in one other instance relating to Shearwater
prior to acquisition which has now fallen away
 Any further developments will be communicated to all stakeholders as they occur
19
Medium to long-term strategy
 Continue harnessing synergy within the group
 Expand product offering and grow market share
 Geographical diversity in Civils and Pipelines
 Environmental accreditation ISO 14001 obtained post year-end
 Securing long-term contracts to create future visibility and to underpin sustainability
 Focus on sustainable growth nodes within government infrastructure programmes
when they occur
 Supply chain management will take cognisance of environmental impact
and carbon emissions will be measured and managed
 Addressing Construction Charter requirements to improve B-BBEE scoring by
31 December 2013
 Focus on concession and development projects
 Focus on private sector clients to balance dependency on government contracts
