Shareholders are advised that, in line with the Board’s original intention and following a period of
orderly hand-over, Mr Eric Diack will step down from his position as Executive Chairman with effect

Mr Diack, together with the Group CEO and CFO has been pivotal in:

        Company on 27 February 2018, ensuring the Company's sustainable future;

(ii)    undertaking a rights issue, completing the early redemption of the Convertible Bond, the
        conversion to equity and the issuance of a new debt instrument;

(iii)   engaging with the Company's South African financiers to negotiate the Company's debt

(iv)    completing the various disposals of non core businesses; and

(v)     engaging with the Company’s stakeholders during this critical juncture.

leadership through a period of significant uncertainty. The Company thanks Mr Diack for his
significant contribution.
