Commercial market softening– EBIT expected to be similar to last year• Sugar– Refining and renewables to continue earnings growth– Based on current hedge book, fx rates and forward curve, realised sugar priceimprovement expected to outweigh effect of Pioneer incident and wet weather.Assuming reasonable finish to season, total Sugar EBIT expected to be higher thanlast year• Aluminium– Carbon material costs likely to have peaked, but benefits won’t be seen this year.Tomago competitive position on cost curve and lower A$ supports earnings– EBIT expected to be slightly lower than last year• Property– EBIT expected to be in the sustainable range of $35-40m, subject as usual to timingof transactions• GROUP LEVEL– Group EBIT expected to be in line with last year– NPAT and EPS to reflect provision adjustments and more shares on issue30
