Shareholders and noteholders are further advised that current independent non-executive director of Equites, Eunice Cross,
has been appointed as the chairperson of the social, ethics and transformation committee in place of Giancarlo Lanfranchi
who resigned with effect from 27 July 2021.
The board of directors confirms that the appointments of the non-executive directors were made in accordance with Equites’
policy on the nomination of directors, and these appointments are in line with Equites’ policy to ensure that the Board enhances
its independence, meets its diversity targets and constitutes the appropriate level of skills and expertise required to successfully
fulfil its duties.
Shareholders and noteholders are further advised that Todd Colin Petersen has been appointed as company secretary of Equites
with effect from 1 October 2021. In line with best governance practices, it is recommended that an executive director does
not also serve as the company secretary; for this reason, Riaan Gous has resigned from the role of company secretary, effective
1 October 2021.
Todd is a qualified attorney of the High Court of South Africa. Moreover, Todd holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree (majoring
in Political Science and History) and an LLB Degree both from the University of Cape Town. Todd has experience in
corporate and commercial law having started his legal career as a candidate attorney and, thereafter, as an associate at Norton
Rose Fulbright. He has also been an associate at Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs and at Bedell Cristin in the Channel Islands.
Todd has been employed as a Legal Executive at Equites since 1 September 2020.
The board is satisfied that Todd has the necessary experience, qualifications and expertise to take up the position of company
secretary of Equites.
The board welcomes Cindy, Ndabe and Todd and looks forward to their respective contributions to the Company.
