Verification Statement

Internal Audit Verification Statement

We remain of the firm opinion, given their intimate knowledge of the Group and our information systems, that Massmart Internal Audit Services is better placed than any external organisation to verify the statistical scorecard information contained in this report.

The Massmart Internal Audit Services conducted a review of the data reported in the preliminary and final sustainability scorecards. The review was conducted in terms of assurance standards and entailed the verification of the authenticity of data presented against internal and external sources. All significant reported internal audit findings have been satisfactorily addressed prior to publication. On this basis we are satisfied to report that the data presented in the scorecards fairly represents the position of Massmart’s sustainability performance for the year ending 30 June 2008.

We report to shareholders and stakeholders through a number of channels. Our annual report 2008 issued along with the sustainability report 2008, focuses on the financial and operational performance of our company as well as our future outlook. Our website www.massmart.co.za is regularly updated, and contains a wealth of detailed information about Massmart and our social and environmental initiatives.
