  • a paid press release giving such details as may be required in terms of the Listings Requirements of the JSE be published when the company or its subsidiaries have cumulatively repurchased 3% (three percent) of the shares in issue and for every 3% (three percent) in aggregate of the initial number of that class acquired thereafter;
  • the general repurchase(s) may not in the aggregate in any one financial year exceed 20% (twenty percent) of the number of shares in the company’s issued share capital at the beginning of the financial year provided that a subsidiary of the company may not hold at any one time more than 10% (ten percent) of the number of issued shares of the company;
  • in determining the price at which the company’s ordinary shares are acquired by the company in terms of this general authority, the maximum premium at which such ordinary shares may be acquired will be 10% (ten percent) of the weighted average of the market price at which such ordinary shares are traded on the JSE, as determined over the 5 (five) trading days immediately preceding the date of the repurchase of such ordinary shares by the company;
  • the sponsor to the company provides a letter on the adequacy of working capital in terms of section 2.12 of the JSE Listings Requirements prior to any repurchases being implemented on the open market of the JSE;

DIRECTORS’ RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT
The directors, whose names are given in the Board of directors, collectively and individually accept full responsibility for the accuracy of the information pertaining to this resolution and certify that to the best of their knowledge and belief there are no facts that have been omitted which would make any statement false or misleading, and that all reasonable enquiries to ascertain such facts have been made and that this resolution contains all information required by law and by the Listings Requirements of the JSE.

The board has no immediate intention to use this authority to repurchase shares in the company. However, the board is of the opinion that this authority should be in place should it become appropriate to undertake a share repurchase in the future.

The reason for and the effect of the special resolution is to grant the company’s directors a general authority, up to and including the date of the following annual general meeting of the company, to approve the company’s purchase of shares in itself, or to permit a subsidiary of the company to purchase shares in the company.
