A WORD FROM OUR GROUP CEO (outgoing)

Grant Dunnington

Dear Stakeholders,

In November 2017 I will be retiring from SBV after 16 years,
having joined in 2001. During this time the business has grown
significantly and I have witnessed momentous change, not
only in the company but also in the industry. SBV has evolved
from a utility company, to a commercial entity, and has grown
from a company with a turnover of R200 million per annum
with less than 1 500 staff to a business that today is generating
in excess of R3 billion in turnover with a staff complement of
more than 7 000 people. It now has operations in Lesotho and
Namibia with plans to expand into other African countries
as it leverages its expertise in South Africa and supports it’s
South African customers abroad.

Securing the contract from Absa for the outsourcing of 100%
of its cash operations in 2012 was a significant milestone and
resulted in a large increase in SBV’s operations and footprint,
which enabled scale economies and efficiencies to be realised
in the business.

Any project of this size comes with
challenges, but it is pleasing to see
that these have by and large been
overcome as the aquired operations
have been fully integrated into SBV.
In February 2016 another significant milestone was achieved
                                                                        I wish to thank all our stakeholders for the role that each of

A WORD FROM OUR CEO, SOUTH AFRICA

Mark Barrett

I
   am pleased to present the biennial SBV Services Integrated
   Report for the period July 2015 to June 2017. Reflecting on
   the past two years we can, as an organisation, be proud
of the extraordinary efforts of our teams of people who have
worked tirelessly to embed the new technology, optimise
our business processes, improve customer service levels and
manage the ever-growing risk environment.

The external environment continues to be challenging from a
cost-pressure perspective and from a crime perspective. Good
progress has been made in conjunction with the Shareholder
Banks to implement a new operating model to address the
deficiencies in the previous wholesale cash storage and
processing model.

Excellent progress in driving greater
efficiencies, improved service levels
and optimisation of processes
continues to be reflected in the
Processing division and continued
pressure on costs and an inability
to price appropriately to the market
continues to be a focus point for the
Logistics division.
Our organisation has significantly improved its engagements
with the stakeholder Banks and continues to explore
approaches that will reduce costs and improve service
levels. The key challenge that the organisation is digesting is        I wish to thank all our shareholders for suporting the Stratco

SBV SERVICES – AN OVERVIEW

                                                                   7

OUR STORY – ENABLING SEAMLESS CASH SUPPLY
    ACROSS THE VALUE CHAIN

    A
           frica still has predominantly cash-based economies,
           which means that managing the life cycle of cash has
           a direct impact of the integrity of the economies in
    which we work. At SBV, we pride ourselves on making sure
    that cash in circulation is of a high quality, always available,
    where it’s needed and on time.

    Every year, SBV processes R1.8 trillion in cash and we transport
    R1 trillion in notes and coins. On average in a month we service
    over 13 000 ATMs, 3 000 bank branches and 5 000 retail sites.
    This means that we have touchpoints at every place along the
    cash life cycle: a responsibility that we take very seriously.

    One of our key partnerships is with the South African Reserve
    Bank (SARB). The SARB is responsible for removing old notes
    from circulation and replacing them with newly printed ones.

    Managing the rate of coin and note production to replace old
    and worn notes involves a complex economic balance. SBV
    provides the SARB with valuable, on-the-ground insight into
    the demands across different touchpoints of the cash cycle.
    SBV ensures sustained cash availability, while managing the
    associated costs and risks.

    The movement of cash is intricate and extensive and a single
    banknote or coin will pass through a multitude of hands and
    systems during its lifetime. Maintaining a balance across the
    cycle to ensure that cash is available wherever it is needed,
    though not piling up in excess quantities, requires significant
    information management, data collection and analysis.

    Once implemented, good cash management can have a positive impact on the way in which the economy functions and can keep logistical
    costs at a minimum for all participants in the cash cycle. SBV is part of the solution in achieving this.

    Cash is more than just money, it’s about people, quality of life, business and commerce. Cash helps to maintain a healthy, integrous economy.

Through a focus on strengthening and sustaining our partnerships and significant investments in our capabilities and business processes, as well
as a consistently low risk profile, we have built our reputation as a trusted leader in the cash environment.

Our steadfast reliability and integrity are essential for the continuation of our business and are what make our clients trust us as a reliable cash-
services partner. We endeavour to embody integrity and stand out as a world-class, ethical and professional company. We have a thorough
understanding of our customers and the dynamics involved in the cash industry. Even in the face of challenges, we aim to consistently do the
right thing, and take accountability for all our decisions.

SBV has a remarkable capacity for innovation and one of our key distinguishing features in the market is our adaptability to meet the needs of a
continually changing sector. This adaptability has led to recent highlights like the development of smaller cash centres for the handling of cash
collected from clients’ premises and our shopping mall cash-recycling system.

We value the people we encounter at every point in our work, including our employees, our clients and the public, and all our solutions are
designed with people in mind. Innovations developed by SBV always prioritise public safety and the safety of our cash-in-transit employees, and
clients have seen the benefit of this. Our solutions and services keep people safe, cash flowing and optimum efficiencies in place along the cash
supply value chain. SBV takes care of the risks associated with cash, and provides peace of mind and smart solutions.

    History and recent highlights
    Founded in 1986, SBV Services is a leading provider of cash services and solutions in South Africa. In addition, we have
    expanded into other African countries, including extending our business into Namibia and Lesotho. In total, SBV has 36 cash

Prosegur – a key strategic
     partnership
     In 2016, SBV Services formed a strategic alliance with
     Prosegur a global leader in the private security industry, with
     the sale of a 33.33% stake in our ownership to the Madrid-
     based company. The alliance forms part of SBV’s strategy for
     sustainable growth and diversification, particularly as we look
     to continue expanding into Africa.

     Our engagement with Prosegur dates back to 2010 and this
     relationship has enhanced our competitiveness as a key player
     in the cash sector. The alliance is a positive step for our two
     companies as we will maximise synergies through the transfer
     of knowledge, resources and capabilities. With a global
     industry leader on board, we will raise the bar on international
     best practice within the African cash environment and increase
     our ability to grow and diversify our business.

     Prosegur is a global company in the private security industry. It
     has over 160 000 employees and a presence in Asia (China, India
     and Singapore), Europe (France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal
     and Spain), Oceania (Australia) and Latin America (Argentina,
     Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay).
     Prosegur offers companies, households and retail businesses
     security that they can trust, based on the most advanced
     solutions in the market.

     SBV’s existing partnership with the four largest banks in South
     Africa, our national infrastructure and our expertise in the cash-
     services sector, make the alliance a strategic achievement for
     Prosegur, whilst also giving it an African presence.

     Since 2001 Absa Bank Limited, FirstRand Bank Limited,
     Standard Bank of SA Limited and Nedbank Limited have
     each held a 25% shareholding in SBV. With the new Prosegur
     alliance, the banks each hold a 16.67% share in the business.

3 Decades in the cash-services sector
On 26 September 2016 SBV celebrated
30 years in business. Our growth,
innovation and commitment to the
cash-services sector over the past three
decades have established SBV as a
leader in the South African cash market
and in other key markets across the
continent.
Over the last 30 years, SBV has been a front runner in developing
technology to constantly improve our services and capabilities in the
cash industry. SBV leads the industry by maintaining a low risk profile,
statistics provided by the South African Banking Risk and Information
Centre (SABRIC) on cash-in-transit crime bear testament to this as
SBV consistently experiences the least number of attacks. Recent
investments and developments include establishing Automated
Commercial Deposit Processing in our cash centres to reduce the
time and cost of processing cash.

SBV has also increased its IT capability with investment in data
production and business intelligence integration with our banking
clients’ cash management systems through Inventory Supply
Accounting (ISA) for better efficiency in cash management. In
addition, we have invested in research and testing of new technology
that contributes to the mitigation of risks in both the Processing and
Logistics environments.

Our commitment to continually developing and improving our
services has been a key part of our success and sustainability.
From humble beginnings as a utility company, our expansion into
a fully integrated cash-services organisation and our increased
geographical reach are an exciting foundation on which to build for
the next 30 years.

      SBV’s journey would not have been possible without the
      partnership of others. Dedicated employees and an executive
      team that is committed to excellence and growth have been
      a fundamental part of our successes.

                                                                                                                 11

In honour of Mandela Day and to celebrate SBV’s 30th Anniversary, 30 000 colouring books and crayons were printed
       and distributed by SBV employees to homes and schools in their communities. These colouring books were custom
       made including designs and stories of hope contributed by SBV’s employees and covered themes of conservation and
       saving – topics which reflect SBV’s values and hope for future generations.

     KEY STATISTICS – OVERVIEW OF OUR EXISTING CAPABILITIES

     SBV SERVICES INTEGRATED REPORT 2017
OUR BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT AT A GLANCE

A
        s a key role player in the economy and partner to the Central Banks and the Commercial Banks, SBV’s business environment is
        influenced by several complex and intricate components that are interdependent. An impact or change in one element of our
        business has a consequence on every other component. We are cognisant that our shareholders and customers are feeling the
pressures of a challenging economic and political climate and this places significant pressure on SBV to contain the costs of the company’s
cash services and solutions while at the same time investing in the business to improve efficiencies, mitigate our risks and meet the needs of
our customers. Furthermore, lower living standards, the unemployment rate, and crime and corruption expose our people and our business
to severe risks.

We face several other challenges including complex relationships and dependencies
on the shareholding banks who are also our customers and whom we need to support
in realising their own strategic deliverables.
We are, therefore, reviewing our business model to clarify roles and expectations so that benefits can be derived for both SBV and our
partners. The retail market is also volatile and price sensitive presenting ongoing pressures to reduce our pricing structures. We are, however,
focused on the protection of human life and will therefore not compromise on the costs that we need to incur to protect people and assets.

Despite the challenges that the business faces, SBV is a solutions and customer-focused business and has taken several deliberate measures
to build the business and to address its customer’s issues. Through the foundations that we have built over the last two years, we are currently
at the forefront of the industry in terms of our infrastructure, capabilities, technology, risk management and talent acquisition.

We have recognised the opportunities presented by the challenges that our business has faced and have reshaped our business to deliver
on our promises to our customers and to the cash-services sector while at the same time ensuring sustainability.

                  Political
                  Instability and conflict in Parliament coupled with looming allegations of fraud and corruption have created serious
                  reputational damage in South Africa and have resulted in a lack of confidence in the integrity and capability of Parliament’s
                  governance. These conditions have been aggravated by service delivery failures. A decline in consumer business confidence
                  has a impact on SBV’s customers as purchasing, manufacturing and trade slow down.

                  Economic
                  Fluctuating fuel prices have an impact on SBV’s variable costs and also the consumer. Low economic growth, food inflation
                  as a result of the drought season, a weakening Rand and South Africa’s downgrading to junk status have had a negative
                  impact on consumers and businesses resulting in pressure on the banks and our retail clients to contain operational costs.

                  Social
                  Over the last year South African businesses have been significantly impacted by ongoing strike and protest action and this
                  in turn has had an impact on SBV’s operations. With contingency plans in place and dedicated teams within our operations,
                  the impact on service delivery has been successfully contained.

                  Consumers are under severe pressure and faced with debt issues, this is compounded by a growth in unemployment,
                  inflation, low living standards and inequality with high levels of poverty. This complex social environment potentially
                  exposes the cash industry to crime, it also can potentially foster fraud and dishonesty. Fraud, crime and corruption increase
                  insurance costs as well as the costs of acquiring intelligence and technology thereby adding to the capital expenditure
                  and operational costs to the business. Despite these challenging conditions, SBV continues to create job opportunities
                  and to invest in skills development, training and education. SBV’s talent force, of more than 7 000 employees has remained
                  consistent with no job losses being suffered over the period. Employee wellness is also a key focal point and the company
                  offers several programmes and benefits to enhance employee wellbeing and lifestyle.

                                                                                                                                                    13
                                                                                                              SBV SERVICES INTEGRATED REPORT 2017
Technological
                        Cybercrime continues to present challenges and threats at a global level and is a critical component of our IT risk
                        management framework.

                        A key component of SBV’s strategy over the last two years has been the advancement of our IT capabilities and to improve
                        efficiencies and reduce costs to the banks through automation.

                        Our customers have already started to gain visibility of the benefits of our investments and, looking ahead, our strategy is
                        to provide greater integration with the bank’s systems with added automation. Furthermore, the deployment of advanced
                        technology is instrumental in mitigating SBV’s risks.

                        Legal
                        Cash availability and the handling of cash is highly regulated by the Currency and Banking Act and is governed by the
                        South African Reserve Bank Act. As a preferred partner to the SARB, SBV ensures that its practices are aligned to legislation
                        and leads in the cash-services sector to support the SARB’s objectives by ensuring the velocity of cash, safeguarding the
                        quality of cash, ensuring cash availability and mitigating systemic risks.

                        Complexities are also presented by the Competition Commission’s legislation and we need to ensure that our practices
                        and competitiveness in the industry are equitable.

                        Environmental
                        SBV is conscious of its responsibility to reduce the impact that it has on its environment and in addressing the global
                        warming crisis. SBV’s most significant impact on the environment is the fuel consumption and carbon emissions of its
                        fleet and as such it is currently replacing its entire fleet with engines that are compliant with Euro 3 standards. Fleet
                        management technology also plays a role in ensuring that our fleet is efficiently managed and as such is reducing our fuel
                        consumption.

                        SBV’s recently developed cash centres are fitted with solar panels and water tanks. Furthermore, lighting in all our buildings
                        has been replaced with energy efficient lighting.

                        SBV is committed to effectively monitoring and managing its water and electricity consumption and to the implementation
                        of a national waste management and recycling programme within the next year.

                        Power and water cuts together with extreme weather conditions have also had a significant impact on the commercial
                        environment. SBV has played a supportive role in ensuring cash continuity and security over these periods and has
                        developed a Business Continuity Plan for disaster recovery and cash risk mitigation.

LEADING A BETTER BUSINESS FOR TOMORROW

SBV is on a relentless drive to lead in customer service, risk and expertise and this has
been articulated in SBV’s strategy, which is founded on six pillars:

•    n ongoing focus on people, with the ultimate goal to retaining our top talent, fostering an engaged and committed workforce and to
    A
    be an Employer of Choice.
•   Re-enforcing and growing our partnerships with the banks and central banks and the diversification of our business.
•   An inward focus on driving efficiencies, automation, IT integration and service excellence.
•   Enabling delivery through the effective deployment of the six capitals (financial, human, social and relationship, intellectual, manufactured
     and natural) to support our operational teams.
•    An outward focus on our customers and on providing innovative products and solutions to the market and bespoke solutions to our
      customers.
•     Risk mitigation to protect people and assets.

SBV strategy

Over the last two years SBV has continued to make progress in executing our strategy while recognising the ongoing negative contribution
to cash-in-transit services, and the commitment to cash availability principles. We have successfully executed capital expenditure programmes
to strengthen our position as a leader in the cash services sector and to improve sustainability. Furthermore specific emphasis was placed on
establishing strong operational stability to deliver positive business results.

                                                                                                                                                      15

What we have achieved to date

     2015 – 2016: Stabilisation of the business
     The integration of the Absa Cash Solutions business and the taking on of the Standard Bank Mthatha and Mahikeng centres played a key role
     in identifying gaps within our business that needed to be filled so that we could build a stable, world-class business that allows us to manage
     customer expectations and complex markets.

     2016 – 2017: Margin management and profitability
     We reviewed costs at every level of our business to ensure that we are profitable, meet the requirements of our shareholders and that our
     cash-handling and cash-processing business grows.

     Furthermore, we invested significantly in infrastructure, automation, lean methodologies technology and operational efficiencies to create
     long term value for our stakeholders.

BOLSTERING OUR RESILIENCE & ENSURING SUSTAINABILITY
     THROUGH A SOUND RISK MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK

     S
           BV is continually focused on reducing its risks and this is supported by significant investments in increasing automation and acquiring
           technology that is aligned to global best practice. We are also dedicated to the Business Continuity Management of the cash industry
           and effective crisis management, a responsibility that we take seriously.

     SBV Risk Management Framework
     Managing risk will always be integral to generating sustainable shareholder and stakeholder value. SBV endeavours to apply the principles
     of King IV to such an extent as to make risk management not only a reporting and oversight obligation, but a management discipline. In
     support of this, risk management forums have been established to further support the formal risk reporting structures and to drive risk
     management as part of the culture and organisational practice at SBV.

     Stratco/Executive Management
     The SBV executive and its management structures are responsible for applying the defined risk management process across the business.
     This enables management to identify potential events, which if they occur, will affect SBV in achieving its strategic objectives. Risks will be
     managed within SBV’s risk appetite and tolerance levels as set by the Board.

     Risk Management Services
     The Risk and Compliance Division is the owner of the SBV Risk Management Framework and drives the implementation and reporting of all
     risks in SBV. This includes:
     • Defining and implementing the risk process;
     •	Facilitating risk workshops with all areas of the business annually;
     • Ensuring updates to risk reporting at least quarterly;
     • Tracking and updating on risk corrective actions;
     • Reporting on all risks to line management and Stratco;
     •	Providing status reports on risks to the Risk and Audit Committee; and
     • Driving risk management as an effective management tool in SBV.

SBV’s Risk Profile
This financial year saw a renewed steep trajectory in violent
heists and the threat of potential workforce instability. The
current deterioration in the external risk environment in
South Africa, continues to attract the attention of the
underwriters, which will significantly impact bottom line, and
places the overall 207/2018 budget at risk.

JOINING FORCES IN THE BATTLE AGAINST CIT CRIME

     The industry cash-in-transit (CIT) risk has continued on a steep upward trajectory and we are alarmed about the recent targeting of CIT
     companies by criminals. CIT crime is characterised by excessive violence and shoot outs between the perpetrators and CIT members as well
     as the SAPS. Attacks are carried out with military precision and the use of explosives is increasing.

     In this financial year as at 31 October 2017, SBV has experienced 15 CIT robbery incidents. Industry CIT robbery incidents have increased by
     44% from 2016 YTD (218 incidents) to 2017 YTD (313 incidents). Incidents in October 2017 increased by 24% compared to October 2016.
     42 incidents were reported for the month of October, the highest since August 2009. Based on monthly trends over the past five-years
     (2012-2016), incidents for November 2017 will exceed 30.

     SBV is reinforcing its internal systems and risk mitigation measures to keep our employees, the public and our customers’ assets safe. We are
     also working closely with our industry partners, with SABRIC, the authorities and law enforcement officials to ensure that everything possible
     is being done to prevent these serious crimes.

     Our Risk and Compliance team is committed to ensuring that
     justice is served and we are pleased that over the last two months
     five criminals have been convicted and sentenced, one of whom
     was involved in the murder of an SBV employee.

     Despite the increase in CIT crime, SBV has maintained the lowest
     risk profile and we will persist in further reducing, mitigating and
     fighting CIT crime.

     We are, however, conscious that the entire industry is vulnerable
     to CIT crime, at all times, and will work collaboratively with all role
     players to reduce this iniquitous threat to the industry and society
     at large.

SBV’S SECURITY HEROES

In honour of SBV’s Logistics Heroes
Behind the wheel of SBV’s cash-carrying vehicles, on foot at strategic sites in
commercial areas, guarding ATM sites and moving purposefully through
public spaces, SBV’s Logistics employees are on duty ensuring that human
lives are protected whilst ensuring that cash is available to keep the economy
flowing. SBV’s Logistics teams are our security heroes who are dedicated to
public safety, to the communities that SBV serves and to their teams.

SBV’s Protection Officers are highly trained to perform their duties in dangerous
environments and to effectively respond to security threats. CIT crime is,
however, extremely violent and there are unfortunate incidents where team
members are injured and even more tragically when there is a loss of life.

In October 2016, SBV held its second Annual
Remembrance and Bravery Recognition
ceremony in recognition of individuals who
have demonstrated extraordinary acts
of bravery in the face of danger and in
remembrance of our team members who
lost their lives in the line of duty.

      We honour and remember our team members who sacrificed their lives
           in the line of duty between November 2015 and September 2017.

     SBV SERVICES INTEGRATED REPORT 2017
SBV adds significant value to the South African Financial Services industry and particularity supports its bank partners. The Social Assistance
Act of 2004 and regulations to the Act provide the legal framework for the administration of social grants. Grants are targeted at categories of
people who are vulnerable to poverty and in need of state support. The Government Pensions Administration Agency paid out pensions and
benefits worth over R3.7 billion to approximately 114 200 beneficiaries during 2014/2015. SBV manages the cash handling process for the
majority of the monthly social grant withdrawals by the South African Social Security Agency, including pensioners’ grants.

The ATM remains a convenient, trusted self-service channel for many customers and continues to play a key role as a source of access to cash. SBV
manages over 3 000 ATMs on average per month as part of our strategy to ensure the availability of cash and the careful management thereof.

SBV’s role in managing systemic risk
SBV plays a major role in almost every component of the cash value supply chain, which necessitates significant work in developing strategies,
plans and actions that provide protection or alternative modes of operation for activities or business processes, which if interrupted, might cause
serious damage or significant loss.

Evolving core elements taken into consideration include:
•   Crisis management and communications plan – a process designed to enable an effective response to an event. During the year, a hostage
     management process was added to the SBV crisis management plan to prepare the business for effective planning and communication
     protocols if such an event should materialise.
•	  IT disaster recovery – addresses recovering business critical IT assets, including systems, applications, databases, storage and network
     assets.
•    Business continuity plan or recovery plan – recovering critical business functions and processes that affect delivery of core services to
      our clients. As a component of business continuity management, emergency response plans are documented and tested regularly. These
      include immediate actions to preserve lives and safeguard property and assets.
