Listing of new financial instrument

(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)
(Registration number 2013/080877/06)
JSE share code: EQU ISIN: ZAE000188843
Debt company code: EQUI
(Approved as a REIT by the JSE)


The JSE Limited has granted approval for a new financial instrument listing to Equites under its Domestic
Medium Term Note Programme dated 30 August 2021.

The instrument is a sustainability-linked bond issued by Equites in partnership with Standard Bank, who acted
as sole arranger, sustainability structuring agent and primary anchor investor.

The bond represents the ability to raise capital at an attractive rate and Equites will benefit from a reduction in
the interest rate if pre-agreed key performance indicators (“KPI”) are met.

The three KPI’s that Equites has set are focussed on sustainable building practices, increasing renewable
energy usage and promotion of supplier enterprise development. Equites has committed to ensuring that all
new developments are green certified, that renewable energy consumption across its portfolio of high-grade
logistic assets is increased each year and increasing spend with enterprise and supplier development partners
as part of Equites’ Ampcore Programme. These initiatives are aligned with Equites’ strategy to ensure the
sustainability of its portfolio and the environment in which it operates.
