Independent auditor's report on the summarised Company financial statements

To the shareholders of Vodacom Group Limited
Opinion

The summarised financial statements of Vodacom Group Limited (the ’Company’), set out in the Summarised Company consolidated annual financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2018, which comprise the summarised company statement of financial position as at 31 March 2018, the summarised Company income statement, summarised Company statement of comprehensive income, summarised Company statement of changes in equity and summarised Company statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and related notes, are derived from the audited financial statements of the Company standing alone for the year ended 31 March 2018.

In our opinion, the accompanying summarised financial statements are consistent, in all material respects, with the audited financial statements, in accordance with the JSE Limited’s (JSE) requirements for summarised financial statements, as set out in the basis of preparation paragraph in the summarised financial statements, and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa as applicable to summarised financial statements.

Summarised financial statements

The summarised financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by International Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa as applicable to annual financial statements. Reading the summarised financial statements and the auditor’s report thereon, therefore, is not a substitute for reading the audited financial statements and the auditor’s report thereon.

The audited financial statements and our report thereon

We expressed an unmodified audit opinion on the audited financial statements in our report dated 1 June 2018. That report also includes communication of key audit matters. Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period.

Directors’ responsibility for the summarised financial statements

The directors are responsible for the preparation of the summarised financial statements in accordance with the JSE’s requirements for summarised financial statements, set out in the ’Basis of preparation’ paragraph in the summarised financial statements, and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa as applicable to summarised financial statements.

Auditor’s responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on whether the summarised financial statements are consistent, in all material respects, with the audited financial statements based on our procedures, which were conducted in accordance with International Standard on Auditing (ISA) 810 (Revised), Engagements to Report on Summary Financial Statements.
