     intrOdUctiOn
     Omnia is a diversified, specialist chemical services provider with business interests balanced
     across chemical, mining and agricultural markets. The Group’s model, which leverages its
     intellectual capital and technology, differentiates it from commodity chemical companies.
     The Group’s three business divisions (chemical, mining and agriculture) continue to provide value
     add customised solutions built on a continually expanding knowledge base. Omnia’s business
     model places it at the forefront of the chemical services industry and involves uniquely matching
     customer needs to product innovation and application expertise to add extraordinary value to its
     customer’s businesses.

     marKet cOnditiOns
     Overall market conditions were more stable than in 2009. commodity prices in general were
     marginally higher, albeit off low levels but the benefit thereof was negated by the strong Rand
     such that Rand margins came under pressure.
     Significant different demand conditions existed in the markets of the three divisions. Mining
     experienced buoyant conditions due to increased international demand for coal, iron ore, copper
     and platinum. chemicals experienced tough trading conditions as low levels of activity persisted
     in the South Africa manufacturing sector and selling prices came under pressure due to the
     strong rand and relatively subdued commodity prices. Agriculture conditions were mixed in that
     there was a poor winter wheat season, a bumper maize harvest and lower domestic maize prices
     prevailed. The strong Rand and subdued international fertilizer prices led to a small reduction in
     local fertilizer prices.

     financial revieW
     Revenue at R4 268 million was the same as the previous year and reflected the effect of
     marginally lower sales prices offset by marginally higher overall volumes.
     Operating profit improved to R293 million (2009: R52 million loss). Adjusting for the 2009
     R350 million downward valuation of inventory, operating profit was in line with the previous year.
     finance cost reduced by 37% due mainly to lower average working capital in 2010 compared
     to 2009 and further aided by lower interest rates.
     Net working capital of R1 917 million (2009: R1 501 million) is in line with the traditional peak
     seasonal requirements of the Agriculture division. The Group’s net working capital requirements
     reach a peak in September/October each year, and so does net interest bearing debt. The
     R1 billion equity raising programme was completed on 14 September 2010 on which date the
     funds were received. R467 million of the R1 billion has been utilised to fund capital expenditure
     on the new Nitric Acid complex and expenses associated with the equity raising programme,
     and the balance of R533 million has been applied to repay short term bank facilities resulting
     in net interest bearing debt at R1 084 million being lower than the R1 513 million recorded
     in 2009.

divisiOnal revieW
chemicals
Protea chemicals is a well established distributor and manufacturer of speciality, functional and
effect chemicals and polymers in southern and eastern Africa. It was recently rated the 13th
largest chemical distribution company in a worldwide survey by the respected industry journal,
IcIS chemical business.
The tough trading conditions experienced saw revenue decline by 5% to R1 748 million (2009:
R1 844 million) as selling prices reduced on the back of the strong rand and volumes were flat
year on year. Operating profit declined 46% to R32 million (2009: R59 million). Given the largely
fixed nature of overheads, an improvement in the gross margin percentage and a strong focus
on cost control were insufficient to compensate for the effect of the reduced revenue but
assisted in limiting the decline in operating profit.

mining
The Mining division offers a broad range of services to the mining industry through bME and
Protea Mining chemicals. bME is a market leader in manufacture and supply of blended bulk
explosives for surface mines and also manufactures and supplies packaged explosives for
underground mines and shock tube and electronic delay detonators initiation systems. bME
operates throughout Africa. Protea Mining chemicals operates in southern Africa and offers
value added services to complement its wide range of chemical products.
Revenue increased by 20% to R1 081 million (2009: R899 million) on the back of strong volume
growth in surface and underground mining. Operating profit improved 61% to R172 million
(2009: R107 million) even with the strong rand negatively impacting the translation of improved
earnings from foreign operations.
The new shock tube initiation system manufacturing facility is functioning well and throughput
increases month by month. The results of the most recent trials of the latest generation
Electronic Delay Detonator system are very promising and commercialisation will commence
in the near future.
Protea Mining chemicals achieved volume increases but operating profit was marginally below
that of 2009. Anticipated growth continues to be affected by delays in a number of customer’s
expansion projects.

agriculture
The Agriculture division produces and supplies granular, liquid and speciality fertilizers to farmers,
co-operatives and wholesalers throughout southern and eastern Africa, Australasia and brazil.
Revenue reduced by 4% to R1 439 million (2009: R1 506 million) on the back of a small reduction
in selling prices due to the strong rand whilst volumes were at similar levels to the previous
year. Operating profit of R89 million was substantially ahead of the 2009 R218 million operating
loss as the 2009 results included a downward valuation in inventory amounting to R350 million.
Adjusting for this R350 million, operating profit was R43 million below 2009 levels due to the
impact on margins of the reduction in sales prices and the additional input cost attributable to
the purchase of more expensive nitrogen materials, as internal nitric acid production capacity
was increasingly utilised to supply bME’s volume growth.
construction of the new Nitric Acid complex is proceeding according to plan. The Phosphate
plant at Phokeng has been placed on care and maintenance.
Omnia’s defence against the competition commission’s charges is progressing. The seven
year investigation into the alleged collusion within the fertilizer industry continues.


                                                                                                         9
      prOspects
      Overall domestic commodity prices have stabilised, albeit at lower levels, but the strong rand
      will negatively impact operating profit. The Group expects to benefit from substantially lower
      finance costs.
      The chemical division is not expecting any material improvement in volumes and prices and is
      therefore focusing on aggressive cost reductions and efficiency improvements to improve
      operating profit.
      The Mining division expects the favourable conditions of the first half to continue in the second
      half reflecting strong demand for its products.
      The Agricultural division performance will be influenced by fertilizer sales volumes in the
      summer planting season. International fertilizer prices have increased significantly as demand
      improves following the upward move in agriculture produce prices. Some turbulence in the
      market is being experienced because of the withdrawal by yara from South Africa and the
      competition commission ruling that requires Sasol to withdraw from the fertilizer retail market,
      the effects of which are difficult to predict.
      Overall, the Group expects effects to revert to the normal pattern of higher second half earnings.

      dividends
      Shareholders were advised in the 2010 annual report that a dividend was not likely to be
      declared this year in the light of the equity that was raised to fund the Nitric Acid complex. The
      board has confirmed this approach and no dividend has been proposed.

     KOmmentaar
     inleiding
     Omnia is ’n gediversifiseerde spesialisverskaffer van chemiese dienste met gebalanseerde
     belange in die chemikalie-, mynbou- en landboumarkte. Die Groep is in wese ’n kennisbesigheid
     wat sy toonaangewende intellektuele kapitaal en tegnologie aanwend om hom te diversifiseer
     van ander kommoditeits-chemikalieëverskaffers.
     Al drie die Groep se sakesegmente (chemikalieë, mynbou en landbou) lewer steeds hoë
     waarde, pasgemaakte oplossings wat gebaseer is op ’n voortdurende groeiende kennisbasis.
     Omnia se unieke besigheidsmodel wat daarop gerig is om buitengewone waarde vir sy kliënte
     en hulle besighede te skep deur sy vermoë om kliëntebehoeftes te identifiseer en met
     toepaslike innoverende produkte en dienste te bevredig, plaas hom op die voorpunt van die
     chemiese dienstebedryf.

     marKtOestande
     Oor die algemeen was markomstandighede meer stabiel as dié van 2009. Kommoditeits-
     pryse was in die algemeen marginaal hoër, alhoewel in vergelyking met baie lae vlakke, maar
     die voordeel daarvan was teengewerk deur die sterk rand sodat randmarges onder druk
     verkeer het.
     beduidend verskillende aanvraag omstandighede was teenwoordig in die markte van die drie
     afdelings. Mynbou het veerkragtige toestande beleef weens verhoogde internastionale
     aanvraag na steenkool, ystererts, koper en platinum. chemikalieë het taai handelstoestande
     beleef namate lae vlakke van aktiwiteit voortgeduur het in die Suid-Afrikaanse vervaardigingsektor
     en verkooppryse steeds onder druk verkeer het weens die sterk rand en relatief gematigde
     kommoditeitspryse. Landboutoestande was gemeng in die sin dat dit ’n swak winterkoring-
     seisoen was, ’n goeie mielie-oes en laer plaaslike mieliepryse het geheers. Die sterk rand
     en gematigde internasionale kunsmispryse het gelei tot effens laer plaaslike kunsmispryse.

     finansiËle OOrsig
     Inkomste van R4 268 miljoen was dieselfde as die vorige jaar en reflekteer die effek van die
     marginale laer verkoopspryse teengewerk deur marginale hoër totale volumes.
     bedryfswins het verbeter tot R293 miljoen (2009: R52 miljoen verlies). Aangepas vir die 2009
     R350 miljoen afwaarste waardering van voorraad, is bedryfswins in lyn met die vorige jaar.
     finansieringskoste het met 37% afgeneem, hoofsaaklik as gevolg van laer gemiddelde
     bedryfskapitaal in 2010 as dit met dié van 2009 vergelyk word en is verder gesteun deur laer
     rentekoerse.
     Netto bedryfskapitaal van R1 917 miljoen (2009: R1 501 miljoen) is in lyn met die tradisionele
     piek seisoenale vereistes van die Landbou-afdeling. Die Groep se netto bedryfskapitaalvereiste
     bereik elke jaar in September/Oktober ’n hoogtepunt, so ook netto rentedraende skuld. Die
     R1 miljard ekwiteits-uitgifte program is op 14 September 2010 voltooi op welke datum die
     fondse ontvang was. R467 miljoen van die R1 miljard is aangewend om die kapitaalbesteding
     op die nuwe Salpetersuurkompleks en uitgawes wat met die ekwiteits-uitgifte program
     geassosieer word, te befonds en die balans van R533 miljoen is aangewend om korttermyn
     bankoortrekkings af te betaal, wat veroorsaak het dat netto rentedraende skuld van
     R1 084 miljoen laer is as die R1 513 miljoen verklaar in 2009.

bedrYfsOOrsig
chemikalieë
Protea chemicals is ’n goed gevestigde verspreider van spesialis-, funksionele- en effek-
chemikalieë in Suidelike en Oos-Afrika. Dit is onlangs gegradeer as die 13de grootste chemiese
verspreidingsmaatskappy in ’n wêreldwye opname deur die gerespekteerde industrie tydskrif,
IcIS chemical business.
Die taai handelstoestande wat ondervind is, het veroorsaak dat inkomste afgeneem het met
5% tot R1 748 miljoen (2009: R1 844 miljoen) namate verkooppryse afgeneem het as gevolg
van die sterk rand en volumes was konstant jaar op jaar. bedryfswins het afgeneem met 46%
tot R32 miljoen (2009: R59 miljoen). Gegewe die grootlikse vaste aard van bokostes, was ’n
verbetering in die bruto marge persentasie en ’n fokus op kostebeheer onvoldoende om te
vergoed vir die verlaagde inkomste, maar het gehelp om die afname in bedryfswins te beperk.

mynbou
Die Mynbou-afdeling verskaf wye reeks dienste aan die mynbou-bedryf deur bME en Protea
Mining chemicals. bME is ’n markleier op die gebied van massaplofstofvermengings vir
oopgroefmyne, produseer en verskaf verpakte plofstowwe vir ondergrondse mynbou asook
skokbuisinisiëringstelsels en elektroniese vertragingsknaldoppie-stelsels. bME doen besigheid
regdeur Afrika. Protea Mining chemicals doen besigheid in suidelike Afrika en bied toegevoede
waarde dienste aan om sy wye verskeidenheid chemiese produkte aan te vul.
Inkomste het met 20% toegeneem tot R1 081 miljoen (2009: R899 miljoen) op grond van die
sterk volume-groei in beide oopgroefmyne en ondergrondse myne. bedryfwins het met 61%
verbeter tot R172 miljoen (2009: R107 miljoen) desnieteenstaande die sterk rand wat ’n negatiewe
uitwerking het op die omrekening van verbeterde verdienste van buitelandse bedrywighede.
Die nuwe skokbuisinisiëringstelsels-aanleg funksioneer goed en deurset groei maandeliks.
Resultate van die toetse van die jongste weergawe van die Elektroniese vertragingsknaldoppie-
stelsel is baie belowend en kommersialisering sal in die nabye toekoms begin.
Protea Mining chemicals het toenames in volumes bereik maar die bedryfswins, was effens
laer as in 2009. verwagte groei word steeds beïnvloed deur vertragings by ’n aantal kliënte se
uitbreidingsprojekte.

landbou
Die Landbou-afdeling produseer en verskaf korrel-, vloeibare- en spesialiteitskunsmis aan boere,
koöperasies en groothandelaars regdeur suidelike en oostelike Afrika, Australasië en brasilië.
Inkomste het met 4% afgeneem tot R1 439 miljoen (2009: R1 506 miljoen) as gevolg van ’n
klein afname in verkoopspryse weens die sterk rand, terwyl volumes konstant gebly het.
bedryfswins van R89 miljoen is aansienlik hoër as die 2009 bedryfsverlies van R218 miljoen.
Die 2009 resultate het ’n afwaarste waardasie van voorraad van R350 miljoen ingesluit.
Aangepas vir die R350 miljoen, is bedryfswins R43 miljoen onder die 2009 vlakke as gevolg
van laer verkoopspryse en die addisionele insetkostes toeskryfbaar aan die koop van duurder
stikstof aangesien eie stikstof produksiekapasiteit toenemend aangewend is om aan bME se
volumegroei te voldoen.
Konstruksie van die nuwe Salpetersuurkompleks vorder volgens plan. Die fosfaat-aanleg by
Phokeng is onder sorg en onderhoud geplaas.
Omnia se verdediging teen die mededingingsraad se aantygings vorder. Die sewejaar lange
ondersoek na die beweerde sameswering in die kunsmis bedryf duur voort.

      Oor die algemeen het plaaslike kommoditeitspryse gestabiliseer, alhoewel teen laer vlakke,
      maar die sterk rand sal bedryfswins negatief beinvloed. Die Groep sal na verwagting bevoordeel
      word deur beduidend laer finansieringskoste.
      Die chemikalie-afdeling verwag nie enige wesenlike verbetering in volumes en pryse nie en is
      daarom gefokus op aggresiewe kostebesparings en effektiwiteitsverbeterings om bedryfswins
      te verbeter.
      Die Mynbou-afdeling verwag dat die gunstige toestande van die eerste helfte sal voortduur in
      die tweede helfte, gegewe die sterk vraag na sy produkte.
      Die Landbou-afdeling se prestasie sal beïnvloed word deur kunsmisverkoopsvolumes in die
      somer plantseisoen. Internasionale kunsmispryse het aansienlik gestyg namate die vraag toeneem
      as gevolg van die styging in landbouprodukpryse. ’n Mate van onsekerheid is veroorsaak deur
      die onttrekking van yara uit SA en die mededingingsraad se bevel wat Sasol verplig om uit die
      kleinhandelmark te onttrek, veroorsaak sekere mark onstuimighede, waarvan die gevolg
      moeilik voorspelbaar is.
      Algeheel verwag die Groep om terug te keer na die gewone patroon van hoër verdienste in die
      tweede helfte van die jaar.

      dividende
      Aandeelhouers is in die 2010 jaarverslag in kennis gestel dat dividende waarskynlik nie hierdie
      jaar verklaar sal word nie, in die lig van die ekwiteit-uitgif om die Salpetersuurkompleks te
      befonds. Die raad het hierdie benadering bevestig en geen dividend is voorgestel nie.
