Statement from CEO Andrew Naude



"In a year of continued global change and uncertainty, I am proud to be able to say that DRA achieved what we set out to. By completing the public listing of the company on both the ASX and JSE, we also delivered on a commitment made five years ago. In doing so we have created a sustainable platform for future growth and a vehicle to better advance our purpose.

Over the past few years, DRA has grown in scale and maturity. We now operate a substantially larger and more diverse global enterprise than a few short years ago and compete in a truly global marketplace.

As the world grapples with the challenge of decarbonisation, we recognise that a transformed and sustainable mining, minerals and metals sector will be central to the success of these efforts. At the same time ore bodies are increasingly deeper and more complex, and digital technologies are driving the commoditisation of engineering services. We wish to position DRA as a value-add partner to the industry as it navigates these changes and challenges. In FY2021 we confirmed a future focus on advisory services including digital transformation, sustainability and underground mining services. We have gone to market with our advisory offering to ensure the appropriate focus and grown our underground mining capability in consulting, project delivery and operations.

The events of the last 12-months have strengthened our resolve and confidence in the direction we have chosen for DRA.

We are confident that delivery against our strategy will ensure that we are positioned for success for many years to come. We have identified five strategic pillars to enable and support our growth initiatives."
