The Company informed stakeholders that the Financial Services Conduct Authority in South Africa (the "FSCA") has closed the last pending investigation related to trading in shares of NEPI Rockcastle ("prohibited trading").

Shareholders are referred to previous announcements relating to the election to receive the final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2018, either as a cash dividend or as a return of capital, the last of which was released on 9 April 2019.



Where a shareholder elects to receive the return of capital by way of an issue of new NEPI Rockcastle shares, any entitlement to receive a fraction of a NEPI Rockcastle share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, with a cash payment ("cash payment") made to the relevant shareholder in respect of the fraction.



The value of a NEPI Rockcastle share to be utilised in determining the cash payment due to shareholders has been determined with reference to the volume weighted average traded price of a NEPI Rockcastle share on the JSE on Wednesday, 10 April 2019, discounted by 10%. On this basis, shareholders are advised that the gross value of a NEPI Rockcastle share to be utilised in determining the cash payment due to shareholders is R107.25539. For shareholders on the European register, this gross value is EUR6.74350, being the aforementioned Rand value converted to Euro at the exchange rate of EUR1.00:ZAR15.9050 announced on Tuesday, 9 April 2019.

NEPI Rockcastle shareholders are referred to the circular issued on Wednesday, 20 March 2019, in respect of an election to receive the final dividend (the "final dividend") for the year ended 31 December 2018, either as a cash dividend or as a return of capital and are advised as follows:

*Shareholders holding shares traded on the JSE will receive their cash dividend in South African Rand converted from Euro at an exchange rate of EUR1.00:ZAR15.9050. Accordingly, the cash dividend of EUR26.37 cents per share will be equal to R4.1941 per share.

*The reference price is R112.6894 ("reference price"), being a 5% discount to the five-day volume weighted average traded price (less distribution) of NEPI Rockcastle shares on the JSE as at Friday, 5 April 2019. For NEPI Rockcastle shares traded on Euronext Amsterdam, the reference price is EUR7.0852 (being the reference price of ZAR 112.6894 converted to Euro at the Rand exchange rate of EUR1.00:ZAR15.9050).

*Shareholders electing to receive the return of capital will receive 3.7218 new NEPI Rockcastle shares for every 100 NEPI Rockcastle shares held by such shareholders on the record date of Friday, 12 April 2019, representing the ratio that the cash dividend bears to the reference price. The final dividend will be paid from the Isle of Man.



If no shareholders were to elect to receive the return of capital, the value of the dividends would amount to EUR152 366 053.56. Should all shareholders elect to receive the return of capital, the maximum total number of new NEPI Rockcastle shares to be issued by NEPI Rockcastle pursuant to the return of capital will be 21 504 969.



Dividend tax (and therefore the information provided in this paragraph) is only of direct application to shareholders holding shares traded on the JSE. The gross local dividend amount is R4.1941 per share for shareholders exempt from paying South African dividends tax. The net local dividend amount is R3.3553 per share for shareholders liable to pay the dividends tax rate of 20%. There is no withholding tax payable in the Isle of Man.



NEPI Rockcastle has a dual primary listing on the Main Board of the JSE and Euronext Amsterdam.

Distributable earnings

The board of directors declares a distribution of EUR26.37 cents per share for the second half of 2018. Shareholders can elect to receive distribution either in cash or as an issue of fully-paid shares based on a ratio between distribution declared and the reference price. The reference price will be calculated using a maximum 5% discount to the five-day volume-weighted average traded price, less distribution, of NEPIRock shares on the JSE. The Company reserves the right to limit the total allocation of shares as a percent of the total distribution. A circular containing full details of the election being offered to shareholders, accompanied by announcements on the Stock Exchange News Service (SENS) of the JSE and Euronext Amsterdam will be issued in due course.



Company prospects and earnings guidance

NEPIRock's strategy is to continue focusing on the long-term performance of its portfolio and selective expansion via developments and acquisitions. Leveraging on the quality of the existing portfolio and management platform, future results are expected to outperform those of the Company's peers operating in the same markets. Moreover, superior GDP growth between 2.8% and 4.5% is expected to continue in CEE, relative to EU average of 2.2%, driving up retail consumption and tenant turnovers in the countries where NEPIRock operates. The Company will maintain a flexible approach to new development and acquisition opportunities, considering the availability and cost of funding, with the aim of optimising the long-term benefit to its stakeholders.



Based on strategic options currently under management's control, distributable earnings per share for 2019 are expected to be approximately 6% higher than the 2018 distribution. This guidance is based on the assumptions that a stable macroeconomic environment prevails, no major corporate failures occur and controlled developments remain on schedule. This forecast has not been audited or reviewed by NEPIRock's auditors and is the responsibility of the board of directors.

Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has affirmed NEPI Rockcastle's long-term credit rating and senior unsecured rating at 'Baa3' and changed the outlook from positive to stable. The rating reflects, among others, the good quality of the Group's shopping centres, as illustrated by their consistently high occupancy and strong like-for-like rental growth, and the favourable macroeconomic fundamentals across the Central and Eastern European countries where the Group is present. The rating is also underpinned by the Company's track record of moderate debt metrics.



The change of outlook to stable from positive reflects the agency's view that the Company's liquidity management needs to strengthen. Moody's also note that "the Company's debt metrics remain strong for the rating and that its investment needs are currently more than covered by internally generated funds".

Fitch Ratings ("Fitch") has affirmed NEPIRock's Long-Term Corporate Credit Rating and senior unsecured rating at 'BBB' with a Stable Outlook.



The ratings reflect the group's expanding retail portfolio of dominant shopping centres in large and medium-sized urban conglomerations across Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).



Fitch underlines that, despite rapid growth, the Company has maintained a conservative financial profile with good liquidity and a high degree of financial flexibility. In addition, Fitch emphasizes that the group's expansion is steadily reducing asset concentration and continues to increase geographic diversification into higher-rated countries, which positively impacts on its credit rating assessment.



The Stable Outlook reflects the rating agency's expectations that NEPIRock will continue its expansion and effectively integrate the properties acquired into the existing portfolio, while maintaining its strong operational and financial profile.



The report issued by Fitch is available on the Company's website, http://nepirockcastle.com/wp- content/uploads/2018/11/Fitch-Affirms-NEPI-Rockcastle%E2%80%99s-BBB-Credit-Rating.pdf.

The sub-committee has been mandated by the board to, independently of the other three companies to which the letter is addressed:

- engage with those signatories of the letter who are shareholders in the Company (i) to clarify the specific issues or concerns that they may have pertaining to NEPIRock and (ii) to determine if and how such shareholders would like the Company to investigate these matters;

- engage with significant shareholders that are not signatories of the letter to obtain their views on the content and requests set out therein and ascertain whether they support the requested investigation; and

Shareholders are further advised that the Company is aware that the Financial Services Conduct Authority in South Africa (?FSCA?) is currently investigating possible prohibited trading practices in respect of NEPIRock shares traded on the JSE. Although not an investigation into the business affairs of the Company, NEPIRock has and will continue to co-operate fully with the FSCA investigation.

At the extraordinary general meeting of old NEPI shareholders held on 6 July 2017, shareholders authorised the administrative dissolution of old NEPI as soon as reasonably practicable following the settlement of all liabilities of old NEPI. This administrative dissolution is well advanced and is expected to be completed by 31 January 2018.

Nepirock announced an equity raising of approximately ZAR3 billion through the issue of new ordinary shares (the ?equity raise?). The equity raise is subject to pricing acceptable to Nepirock and will be completed as part of a vendor consideration placing (as defined under paragraph 5.62 of the JSE Listings Requirements) and under the Company?s general authority to issue shares for cash granted on Thursday, 16 May 2017.

The equity raise will be offered to qualifying investors through an accelerated book build process (the ?book build?).

Shareholders are referred to previous announcements relating to the election to receive the interim dividend for the six months ended 30 June 2017 either as a cash dividend or as a return of capital, the last of which was released on 26 September 2017.



Where a shareholder elects to receive the return of capital by way of an issue of new Nepirock shares, any entitlement to receive a fraction of a Nepirock share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, with a cash payment (?cash payment?) made to the relevant shareholder in respect of the fraction.



The value of a Nepirock share to be utilised in determining the cash payment due to shareholders has been determined with reference to the volume weighted average traded price of a Nepirock share on the JSE on Tuesday, 26 September 2017, discounted by 10%. On this basis, shareholders are advised that the gross value of a Nepirock share to be utilised in determining the cash payment due to shareholders is ZAR167.90. For shareholders on the European register, this gross value is EUR10.66573, being the aforementioned Rand value converted to Euro at the exchange rate of EUR1.00:ZAR15.74200 announced on Tuesday, 26 September 2017.



The receipt of the cash payment may have tax implications for shareholders. For those South African resident shareholders receiving the cash payment, such amount may be regarded as a foreign dividend and, if it is, may be subject to South African dividends tax at a rate of 20%, unless an exemption as set out in the South African Income Tax legislation applies. For shareholders liable to pay dividends tax at the rate of 20%, the net value of a NEPI Rockcastle share to be utilised in determining the cash payment due to shareholders is ZAR134.32.



The salient dates and times announced on Friday, 8 September 2017 remain unchanged.

(Official Notice)
Nepirock shareholders are referred to the circular issued on Friday, 8 September 2017, in respect of an election to receive the interim dividend for the six months ended 30 June 2017 either as a cash dividend or as a return of capital and are advised as follows:

* Shareholders holding shares traded on the JSE will receive their cash dividend in South African Rand converted from Euro at an exchange rate of EUR1.00: ZAR 15.74200. Accordingly, the cash dividend of 23.46 Euro cents per share will be equal to ZAR 3.69307 per share.

* The reference price is ZAR 173.22650 (?reference price?), being a 7% discount to the five-day volume weighted average traded price (less distribution) of Nepirock shares on the JSE as at Friday, 22 September 2017. For Nepirock shares traded on Euronext Amsterdam, the reference price is EUR 11.00410 (being the reference price of ZAR 173.22650 converted to Euro at the Rand exchange rate of EUR1.00: ZAR 15.74200).

* Shareholders electing to receive the return of capital will receive 2.13193 new Nepirock shares for every 100 Nepirock shares held by such shareholders on the record date of Friday, 29 September 2017, representing the ratio that the cash dividend bears to the reference price.



If no shareholders were to elect to receive the return of capital, the value of the dividends would amount to EUR 126 438 560. Should all shareholders elect to receive the return of capital, the maximum total number of new Nepirock shares to be issued by Nepirock pursuant to the return of capital will be 11 490 117.



Dividend tax (and therefore the information provided in this paragraph) is only of direct application to shareholders holding shares traded on the JSE. The gross local dividend amount is ZAR 3.69307 per share for shareholders exempt from paying South African dividends tax. The net local divided amount is ZAR 2.95446 per share for shareholders liable to pay the dividends tax rate of 20%. There is no withholding tax payable in the Isle of Man.
