Interim dividend conversion rates and timetable

In accordance with its dividend policy of distributing at least 15% of annual net profit after tax and following the introduction of an interim dividend, the board has declared an interim cash dividend of US$ 0.5 cent per ordinary share.  The interim dividend will be paid on Wednesday, 19 June 2019 and will be paid from income reserves.

Shareholders on the principal Cyprus register will be paid in US$, shareholders whose shares are held through Central Securities Depositary Participants (CSDPs) and brokers and are traded on the JSE will be paid in South African Rand (ZAR) and holders of Depositary Interests traded on the LSE will be paid in Sterling (GBP). The currency equivalents of the dividend, based on the weighted average of the South African Reserve Bank's daily rate at approximately 10:30 (UTC +2) on 14 May 2019, being the currency conversion date, are as follows:

Tax implications of the dividend

Shareholders and Depositary Interest holders should note that information provided should not be regarded as tax advice.

Shareholders are advised that the dividend declared will be paid out of income reserves and may therefore be subject to dividend withholding tax depending on the tax residency of the shareholder.

South African tax residents

South African shareholders are advised that the dividend constitutes a foreign dividend. For individual South African tax resident shareholders, dividend withholding tax of 20% will be applied to the gross dividend of 7.1270 South African cents per share. Therefore, the net dividend of 5.7016 South African cents per share will be paid after 1.4254 South African cents in terms of dividend withholding tax has been applied. Shareholders who are South African tax resident companies are exempt from dividend tax and will receive the dividend of 7.1270 South African cents per share. This does not constitute legal or tax advice and is based on taxation law and practice in South Africa. Shareholders should consult their brokers, financial and/or tax advisors with regard to how they will be impacted by the payment of the dividend.
