Board and committee succession

Mediclinic, a leading international private healthcare services group, announces that on 25 May 2021, Messrs
Alan Grieve and Trevor Petersen, both independent non-executive directors, informed the Board of their
intention to retire as directors of the Company upon the conclusion of their second three-year term of
appointment on 14 February 2022. The Board is in the process of actively recruiting two new independent non-
executive directors and the Company will make further announcements when it is in a position to confirm the
appointments.

The Company is mindful that both Messrs Grieve and Petersen were appointed as directors of Mediclinic
International Limited (a predecessor company to Mediclinic International plc) on 13 September 2012 and that
despite the Board’s views to the contrary, the length of their tenure may, under the UK Corporate Governance
Code, be viewed as impairing their independence. In view of this, and in the interests of continuity and
significant knowledge of the company, Messrs Grieve and Petersen will continue to serve on the Board in a
non-independent capacity from 13 September 2021 until 14 February 2022.

In addition, with effect from 13 September 2021:
- Dr Felicity Harvey will succeed Mr Grieve as Senior Independent Director of the Company,
- Mr Tom Singer will succeed Mr Grieve as Chair of the Audit & Risk Committee, and
- Mr Steve Weiner will succeed Mr Petersen as Chair of the Remuneration Committee.

Messrs Grieve and Petersen will step down f rom all Board committees with effect f rom 13 September 2021.

Mediclinic's Chair, Dame Inga Beale commented:
"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Alan and Trevor for their commitment and valued contributions
to the Board and the Group over many years. We are using the opportunity afforded by their retirements to
further refresh and strengthen the Board. I wholeheartedly welcome Felicity’s appointment as Senior
Independent Director, Tom’s appointment as Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee and Steve becoming Chair
of the Remuneration Committee".

This announcement is made in accordance with the requirement of LR 9.6.11.
