Implats shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 22 June 2017 in
relation to the distribution of a circular to Implats’ shareholders (dated 22 June 2017), including a
notice (the “Notice”) of general meeting (the “General Meeting”) and amongst others a resolution
to grant the board of directors of Implats a specific authority to issue Implats’ ordinary shares in the
future (Ordinary Resolution – Approval of Conversion Issue per the Notice, the “Resolution”), if
required, in accordance with the terms of the recently issued US$ and ZAR convertible bonds
maturing in 2022 (collectively the “2022 Convertible Bonds”).

Following further discussions with the JSE, it has been agreed that because the Implats’ ordinary
shares nominally held by Allan Gray are beneficially held by the clients of Allan Gray and not Allan
Gray itself, Allan Gray will not be treated as a “material shareholder” of Implats and therefore will
not be regarded a “related party” in terms of the JSE Listings Requirements. Allan Gray was the only
potential related party in relation to Implats. Allan Gray clients or entities that are the beneficial
owners of the Implats’ ordinary shares will be entitled to vote on the Resolution, whether in person
or by proxy, subject to the restriction below.

Voting at the General Meeting

Voting at a General Meeting in relation to resolutions regarding a specific issue of shares for cash are
governed by the JSE Listings Requirements. Shareholders are advised that any votes cast on the
Resolution by any specific beneficial holder of Implats ordinary shares that is also a holder of the
2022 Convertible Bonds during the period commencing on the last day to trade to be eligible to vote
at the General Meeting, being Friday, 17 July 2017, up to and including the date of the General
Meeting, being Monday, 24 July 2017 (“Relevant Period”), cannot be counted. Accordingly, any
shareholder entitled to vote at the General Meeting should be satisfied that they were not also a
holder of the 2022 Convertible Bonds during the Relevant Period before either casting their vote at
the General Meeting or, if voting by proxy, submitting their proxy form ahead of the deadline for
submission at 11:00 South Africa time on Friday, 21 July 2017.
