PROPOSED SHARE BUYBACK
Shareholders and the general public are informed that on Friday, 31 May 2019, the board of directors of
Atlantic Leaf (the "Board") resolved, subject to shareholder approval, to put in place a share buyback
programme that would authorise the Board, should circumstances justify this, to repurchase up to 4.99% of
the issued share capital of the Company as at 30 April 2019, representing a maximum of 9 429 933 ordinary
shares in the Company (the "Proposed Share Buyback"). Should shareholders vote in favour of the general
authority to repurchase shares at the upcoming annual general meeting, the Proposed Share Buyback will run
from Wednesday, 10 July 2019 and will endure until the conclusion of the subsequent annual general meeting
of shareholders of the Company in 2020. The Proposed Share Buyback would be at a price calculated based
on the prevailing market price at the time of the repurchase, being at least ZAR 0.01 and not more than 10%
above the weighted average of the market value of the shares as traded on the JSE for the five business days
immediately preceding the date that any repurchase is effected.
Any shares that are bought back by the Company will be held as treasury shares.
The Board is of the opinion that it could be in the best interest of shareholders to proceed with the Proposed
Share Buyback due to the fact that the price at which the issued shares of Atlantic Leaf trade from time to time
represents a significant discount to the intrinsic value of the Company. The Board is further of the view that
the shares repurchased at a discount to their net asset value could be an efficient use of Atlantic Leaf's cash.
In the absence of any other mitigating factors, the Proposed Share Buyback is generally expected to be value
enhancing and will benefit the shareholders of Atlantic Leaf as a whole given that the pricing at which the
Proposed Share Buyback would be effected would be less than the intrinsic value of those shares.
Any amendment to these terms will be announced on the SEM website and on the SENS.
An Explanatory Statement, detailing the terms of the Proposed Share Buyback, has been included in the notice
of annual general meeting that has been distributed to the shareholders of the Company today.
Atlantic Leaf has a primary listing on the Main Board of the JSE and a secondary listing on the Official Market
of the SEM.
