54 Attention: Rick Norwood RNA Consultants 2 September 2009 Dear Rick Having worked for SAB for 7 years as a Risk Manager, I always set extremely high standards for my contractors. SAB as a world class company sets very high standards, not only for their staff but also for their contractors and service providers. When I set out into the big world in 2007 to pursue my dream to be a businessman in my own right and to put my MBA (Masters Degree Business Administration) to work as a consultant, I knew that I had to carry on being the very best I could be and also not accept low grade work from anybody I associated myself, and my company with. I have to honestly say that I have found your companys approach to roofing contracts very refreshing, in the sense that you did things differently, very much like I did! So we had an immediate synergy which has resulted in my being associated with your company and professional network as the Risk/SHE consultant on 2 projects thus far at SAB (East London and Prospecton). I did an initial risk assessment at Butterworth Depot as well. I have found that your holistic, expert and honest approach to provide the client with world class service as well as intensive and effective project and cost management, and save them vast sums of money was a revelation to me. Coupled with your extensive knowledge and experience I now have a mentor from whom I can truly learn as I move forward. Roofing is very often not included as part of planned maintenance for the majority of companies, although it is one of their most valuable assets. Companies only realize the value of this when the roof is severely damaged and they have to spend money on its repairs or replacement, usually at exhorbitant costs. The approach that you use in being not only a supplier of a service but also somebody who partners companies - in the sense that you look after their assets as if they were your own – is unique and invaluable. You provide companies with detailed reports which gives them a clear indication of the current condition of their roofs. You also assist them with budgeting and CAPIN which they can use for forecasting purposes. This really takes all the guess work out of the equation because you do all the spade work for the client. I have noted during my association with you that the roofs at the respective SAB depots were in most cases in very poor and unstable condition and did not seem to have much shelf life left. I know that SAB has maintenance plans for plant and equipment. I would now strongly recommend that roofing for all depots and breweries be part of this as well. For example the Butterworth Depots roof is in a very poor condition, has a number of very high and illegal SHE risk factors and will need very urgent repairs. In short, I am saying that I am very impressed with the work that you do. You also have also developed an extensive and expert multi-disciplinary and very professional SCRACE national network (including myself!) that provides the client with the very best service that they can ever hope to have. I am proud to be associated with your company and association, and will recommend you to any company. Best Regards Dane Herman SHE, Fire and Project Management Consultant. SCRACE Custodian Dane Herman SAB Border and Kei Risk Manager The approach that you use in being not only a supplier of a service but also somebody who partners companies - in the sense that you look after their assets as if they were your own – is unique and invaluable.

55 CALCULATING THE DAMAGE AND LOSSES How much is your company losing, unnecessarily, from the neglect of roofs and other Vulnerable Building and Structure Components (VBSCS)? How much can be saved in Future?
56 Old rules equal poor bottom line! Old rules equal poor bottom line! Many companies cannot afford the usual costs of adequate, correct, essential ongoing professional roofing, construction and engineering remedial services Many companies cannot afford the usual costs of adequate, correct, essential ongoing professional roofing, construction and engineering remedial services Following all the old laws, rules, and recommendations often equals Following all the old laws, rules, and recommendations often equals bankruptcy - a better solution is definitely needed!!!
57 CRITICAL LOSS ZONES CRITICAL LOSS ZONES The Loss-Gain Rule of 1 to 3
58 A vitally important loss-gain issue for many companies at this stage is the salvation of roof etc. areas that are very close to the point of no return.
59 Such areas could be as high as 40% of many companies property portfolios. Such areas could be as high as 40% of many companies property portfolios. Saving these areas in time could reduce the medium term costs by a factor of 300%. Saving these areas in time could reduce the medium term costs by a factor of 300%.
In such cases, the increased costs related to a delay of a few short years could be staggering! In such cases, the increased costs related to a delay of a few short years could be staggering! 60
61 The 5 Basic Types of Roof and VBSC Maintenance The MFM – OMI Principle
62 Type 1 Total Neglect Policy VERY EXPENSIVE, VERY HIGH RISK. RESULTS IN EXORBITANT LONG TERM COSTS AND NO RELIABLE COST PREDICTION. ROOFS OFTEN BECOME PERSISTENTLY PROBLEMATIC WITHIN 7 YEARS, AND FAIL % THROUGH THEIR IDEAL LIFE CYCLE. VERY HIGH SAFETY AND LEGALITY RISKS WILL TEND TO OCCUR.
63 Type 2 Too Little (Maintenance) Too Late SIMILAR RESULTS TO THE ABOVE, THOUGH LESS SEVERE
64 Type 3 Minimum Feasible Maintenance (MFM). THIS IS THE SAFE MINIMUM CARE POLICY. ROOFS ETC. WILL GRADUALLY IMPROVE AND STABILIZE. SHOCK COSTS, SHE AND LEGAL RISKS, AND EXTREME LOSSES WILL STEADILY DECLINE.
65 Type 4 OPTIMUM MAINTENANCE INPUT (OMI) Theoretically ideal, but profitability, better investment options and cash flow should be considered.
66 Type 5 EXCESSIVE MAINTENANCE This becomes unnecessarily expensive, often with relatively poor investment gain.
67 These are empirical approximations, not based on virtual models or formal accounting. CUMULATIVE REPAIR, REPLACEMENT & MAINTENANCE COST: INLAND C4 ENVIRONMENT GALVANISED ROOFING (10 000sqm Roof) 1) Excl VAT and annual escalation. 2) OMI/ MFM graphs assume early commencement and sustained mainteance (within 3 years of construction), using full and correct SCRACE method. 3) Excessive, premature, incorrect or uneconomical maintenance will significantly worsen the cumulative cost outcome. 4) Where underspec materials or techniques are used, the outcomes will begin to approximate the emergency repairs only outcome. 5) The above graphs show heavy industrial corrosion (SO2) areas (C4 on ISO corrosivity category scale). Marine Coastal environments (C5 – surf spray zone) can accelerate costs and corrosion by 30% to 300%. Roof Failed & Replaced Original Roof still in Fair Condition Original Roof still in Good Condition Extreme Safety Risks, Stock Losses, Downtime, Damaged Equipment Safety Risks Nominal Serious Safety Risks & Cost Issues Begin Safety Risks Low Emergency repairs only – too little too late Minimum feasible maintenance input (MFM) Optimum maintenance input (OMP)
68 Key questions What are the cost implications of MFM vs OMI? What will the benefits be?
69 How much will be saved if MFM (Minimum Feasible Maintenance Input Levels) are attained within a year and sustained thereafter, on a existing fairly old, large property portfolio? ARTF estimates that this will effect an average long term saving of around 45% SHE, fire, and legal/ building regulation problems and transgressions should steadily reduce over 12 years by 87% or more Leaks should steadily reduce

77 The Thermographic Imaging Concept, and how Variable Specification Intensity methodology doubles remedial gain per Rand input Specially trained advanced SCRACE professionals apply a concept called: The Variable Vulnerability Concept & Variable Specification Intensity (VVC-VSI) E.g. In the next diagram, only red and orange items would usually be addressed. Lower priority items would only be taken up when all higher priority items in the property portfolio have been remedied and stabilized. This prevents overspending.
78 THE CORROSION & DAMAGE SENSITIVE ZONES OF A COASTAL ROOF Significantly damaged/ vulnerable. Good condition, stable Weathered, but sound and stable. Severely damaged/ vulnerable Becoming vulnerable.
79 Per the VVC-VSI formula, buildings in large property portfolios are carefully assessed – all needed works are carefully defined and priority sequenced. Per the VVC-VSI formula, buildings in large property portfolios are carefully assessed – all needed works are carefully defined and priority sequenced. Only the highest priority and top potential gain/ loss control items are addressed per contract, on a layered system basis. Only the highest priority and top potential gain/ loss control items are addressed per contract, on a layered system basis.
80 Because financial and effort wastage is thus greatly minimized, the level of specification intensity (structural rebuilds, new sheeting and components, heavy duty protective systems, localized repairs, lighter maintenance techniques) are then selectively matched to the severity of damage and damage vulnerability of the components …
81 In this way the roof and its accessories become more and more balanced over the years, resulting in majorly improved roof and VBSC life and performance etc., and enormously reduced costs, leaks, legal issues and risks.

88 ESSENTIAL LOSS/ DAMAGE CONTROL POLICY REQUIRED URGENTLY. Setting effective policy to protect your companys assets and interests.
89 LAW: Senior Management thinks long-term Local branches think short term Due to their own immediate interests, pressures and concerns, local level depots, branches and outlets very seldom correctly, safely and sustainably self-maintain their buildings. This is one of the most fundamental reasons behind the extensive and hugely expensive asset damage, risk accumulation, and the development of serious SHE and building legality issues for the entire corporate group.
These factors and liabilities frequently occur when middle management have sole authority and responsibility for the care of buildings, roofs and structures. SOLUTION: ALL MASTER LEVEL MAINTENANCE POLICY, SPECIFICATIONS AND PROGRAMS TO BE SET AND DILIGENTLY ENFORCED BETWEEN THE MOST SENIOR GROUP MANAGEMENT AND ARTF. 90
91 Recommended senior level protocols, policy and operational adjustments, to undercut and permanently correct the current critical and non-sustainable risk, legal issues, asset loss and damage scenario Move all major maintenance and remedial policy setting, procurements, programming and executions directly under the groups Senior Executive Strata, and advised on always by ARTF. ARTF approved consultants to develop ongoing 12 year strategic maintenance plans for all branches/ depots for maximum gain and cost control continentally Increase and sustain funding to MFM (Minimum Feasible Maintenance Input) level for the entire group continentally, ongoing.

107 Severely corroded structural steel, due to illogical design – now epoxy and polyurethane coated - Witbank.
108 Tzaneen – new box gutter, insulation and purlin
109 Tzaneen – Heavy duty rainwater box, gutter coating and hail guards
113 SAB Wadeville – underground drainage remedials, to deal with collapsed link channels.
114 SAB Wadeville – free flow gutter system
115 Isando – refurbished roof lights from inside. Double laying of old fibreglass sheets to the North facing side solved leaks, UV degradation of beer, and reduced replacement costs enormously.
116 These roofs were constructed from an inadequate material for coastal areas (pre-coated galvanized sheeting). Rapid and extensive corrosion damage occurred. The presence of high levels of windblown sand, salt spray from the sea, and high heat and humidity levels, caused extensive corrosion damage and destruction to the roof.
117 Epoxy pre-coating of roof sheets to prevent accelerated internal corrosion, and assure greatly extended roof sheet life. Corroded roof end was redesigned and rebuilt with an Australian high performance product.
118 Epoxy pre-treatment at new roof sheeting at apex, to prevent internal destruction from salt spray corrosion. Roof sheet replacements.
119 Corrosion treatment under gable trims – these areas tend to get packed with damp sand, organic matter and salt. Note the workers using SABS parachute style safety harnesses and safety lines.
