Woolworths Holdings Limited - Cash distribution and STC charge

Woolworths Holdings Limited
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)

Registration number:  1929/001986/06

Share code: WHL & ISIN: ZAE00063863

Cash distribution and STC charge

Shareholders are reminded of the non-comparability of the effective tax rate in
the forthcoming interim results, due to the STC incurred on the September 2005
dividend payment. The cash distribution from share premium in the comparative
period did not incur STC.

The impact is estimated to increase the effective tax rate by approximately 2.5%
and reduce headline earnings per share by approximately 4% for the half year.
