GENERAL REPURCHASE OF ORDINARY SHARES
At the annual general meeting of the Company held on 26 July 2019 ("AGM"), shareholders,
by special resolution, granted a general authority to the board of directors of the Company
(“Board”) to repurchase up to 20% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company, on
the terms and subject to the conditions specified in the notice of AGM.
Shareholders are hereby advised that, during the period commencing on 8 June 2020 to
9 July 2020, the Company repurchased an aggregate of 77 445 000 ordinary shares,
representing 4.5% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company as at the date on which
the authority to repurchase the ordinary shares was granted (“Repurchases”). The
aforementioned ordinary shares were repurchased for an aggregate value of R180 817 086,
funded out of the Company´s available cash resources, as follows:

The Repurchases were made in terms of the general authority granted by shareholders at the
AGM and were effected through the order book operated by the JSE Limited trading system
without any prior understanding or arrangement between the Company and the
counterparties. The requirements for the general repurchase of ordinary shares in terms of
paragraph 5.72(a) of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, have been complied with.
The ordinary shares repurchased will be delisted and cancelled as soon as possible following
the date of this announcement as the JSE Limited may permit. Following the cancellation of
these shares, the Company will hold 5 001 469 ordinary shares in treasury.
The Company may repurchase a further 265 590 824 ordinary shares (15.5% of the ordinary
shares in issue as at the date on which the authority was granted), in terms of the current
general authority, which is valid until the Company’s next annual general meeting, which is
due to occur on 17 July 2020.
The impact of the Repurchases on the financial position of the Company is immaterial, as the
Repurchases were funded out of the Company’s available cash resources.
Opinion of the Board
The Board has considered the effect of the Repurchases and is of the opinion that, for a period
of 12 months following the date of this announcement:
• the Company and its subsidiaries (“the Group”) will be able, in the ordinary course of
business, to repay their debts;
• the consolidated assets of the Company and the Group will be in excess of the
consolidated liabilities of the Company and the Group;
• the Company´s and the Group´s share capital and reserves will be adequate for the
purposes of the business of the Company and the Group; and
• the Company and the Group will have sufficient working capital for ordinary business
