Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa
Share code: TDHBP
CUMULATIVE, REDEEMABLE “B” PREFERENCE SHARE (““B” Preference Share”) CASH DIVIDEND &
VOLUNTARY PARTIAL REDEMPTION
Notice is hereby given that:
(i) the directors of Tradehold have declared a gross cash dividend (“the Cash
Dividend”) of 2032.50937 cents per “B” Preference Share for the dividend period
from 17 September 2018 to 17 December 2018 (both dates inclusive). The amount
payable will be derived from Tradehold’s operations in the United Kingdom; and
(ii) Tradehold wishes to redeem 9,079 “B” Preference Shares at a redemption amount
of ZAR1,000 being an aggregate return of capital of R9,079,000 on 18 December
2018 (“the Voluntary Redemption”).
The Cash Dividend constitutes a foreign dividend, as defined in section 1 of the
Income Tax Act, 1962 (“ITA”), and is a dividend for purposes of dividends tax (“DT”)
imposed under Part VIII of Chapter II of the ITA, since the “B” Preference Shares are
listed on the JSE Limited and thus constitute a “listed share”, as contemplated in
section 64D of the ITA.
An exemption from DT is provided for in the ITA in respect of:
(i) foreign dividends paid to a South African resident company; or
(ii) dividends paid to a non-resident to the extent that the dividend is paid by a
foreign company in respect of listed shares,
provided certain administrative procedures are complied with.
In terms of the ITA, DT of 20% will be withheld for those holders of “B” Preference
Shares (““B” Preference Shareholders”) who are not exempt from DT. “B” Preference
Shareholders who are not exempt from DT will therefore receive a net dividend of
1626.00750 cents per “B” Preference Share.
The Voluntary Redemption will be funded from internally generated cash flows of
Tradehold. After the Voluntary Redemption, Tradehold will have 1,116,632 “B”
Preference Shares in issue. The Voluntary Redemption will be made pro rata among the
holders of “B” Preference Shareholders in proportion to their respective holdings of
“B” Preference Shares. The notice of Voluntary Redemption contemplated in this
announcement is revocable at the election of Tradehold at any time prior to the
Voluntary Redemption Date.
Tradehold’s income tax reference number is 9725/126/71/9.
