Civil Unrest in South Africa

Astoria’s underlying investments sustained limited damage during the recent wave of unrest in KwaZulu Natal and
Gauteng. The only asset that was impacted was the Goldrush Group, which is the largest underlying asset of RECM
and Calibre Limited, in which Astoria holds an 8.2% interest.

The extent of the damage was limited to the partial destruction of 3 sports betting stores in KwaZulu Natal and the
loss of 20 limited pay-out machines in Gauteng. Goldrush incurred some expense to ensure the safety of its staff
and facilities and for the provision of emergency and essential products to affected staff. The total cost to replace
damaged property is less than R5 million, and Goldrush has the appropriate SASRIA cover in place.

The rest of the portfolio was unaffected.
