AVENG CIRCULAR – FOLLOW-ON RIGHTS OFFER AND NOTICE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING
Shareholders are referred to the announcement published on SENS on Tuesday, 23 March
2021 in terms of which the Company announced the successful completion of the R300 million
rights offer which closed on Friday, 19 March 2021 (the "Initial Rights Offer"). It was noted that
the Initial Rights Offer received greater than expected interest. Immediately following the Initial
Rights Offer, certain shareholders of the Company indicated a willingness to provide further
capital to support the Company. Such additional capital was not anticipated at the time of
developing the Balance Sheet Restructure Transaction (as defined in the Initial Rights Offer
circular). The additional capital would provide the Company with an opportunity to (i) further
solidify its balance sheet, (ii) accelerate its business plan, and (iii) fund identified growth
opportunities which will provide attractive returns, mainly in the Moolmans business.
In order to raise the abovementioned additional capital, Aveng intends to launch a further co-
underwritten, renounceable rights offer to raise up to R100 million from shareholders (the
"Follow-on Rights Offer"). In order to do so, Aveng requires the approval of its shareholders.
The details of the Follow-on Rights Offer will be set out in the Aveng circular.
The circular is available on the Company’s website https://www.aveng.co.za/circular.php
