shares, representing 16.6659% of the issued share capital of the company at the time that the general

such that after the repurchase, there will be 17 273 965 Peregrine ordinary shares in treasury.
Following the above cancellations, the number of shares in issue, including treasury shares, will be
220 467 242.

3. STATEMENT BY THE BOARD
The board of directors has considered the effect of the repurchase and is of the opinion that, for a
period of 12 months following the date of this announcement:
- the company and the group will be able, in the ordinary course of business, to pay its debts;
- the assets of the company and the group will be in excess of the liabilities of the company and the
- the company and the group's ordinary share capital and reserves will be adequate for ordinary
business purposes; and
- the company and the group will have adequate working capital for ordinary business purposes.
4. FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The impact of the repurchase has been calculated and the board can confirm that the implementation
of the repurchase has reduced cash balances by R114 871 444.12. The reduced number of shares in
issue after the cancellation of the repurchased shares will result in a lower weighted average number
of shares used to calculate earnings per share in future reporting periods.
