CHANGE IN EXTERNAL AUDIT FIRM
Shareholders are advised that, following the introduction of Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation by the
Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors, the Company has resolved to early adopt the policy and
has conducted a formal tender process to appoint a new firm of external auditors. Pursuant to
paragraph 3.75 of the JSE Listings Requirements, the Group Audit & Risk Committee has
recommended and it is the intention of the board to approve, the proposed appointment of KPMG Inc.
(“KPMG”) as the external auditor of the Group with effect from the financial year ending 30 June 2022.
The appointment is still subject to approval, by the shareholders of the Company, at the next AGM.
KPMG will replace Ernst & Young Incorporated (“EY”) and the financial year ending 30 June 2021 will
be the final audit conducted by EY
