(“Mediclinic”, or the “Company”, or the “Group”)

24 June 2021


In accordance with the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, notice is hereby given that the Company’s
annual broad-based black economic empowerment compliance report (“compliance report”) in terms
of section 13G(2) of the South African Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act, No. 53 of 2003,
as amended (the “B-BBEE Act”), has been submitted to the Broad-Based Black Economic
Empowerment Commission (the “B-BBEE Commission”). The compliance report is available on
Mediclinic’s website at mediclinic.com/en/governance/sustainable development.

The compliance report relates to the Group’s South African operations and presents an assessment of
the broad-based black economic empowerment status of Mediclinic International (RF) (Pty) Ltd, a
wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and its subsidiaries which include Mediclinic Southern Africa
(Pty) Ltd.

About the B-BBEE Act

The B-BBEE Act was enacted to establish a legislative framework for the promotion of broad-based
black economic empowerment in South Africa and is intended to encourage transformation by including
black people in the economy. It covers aspects such as ownership, management control, skills
development, enterprise and supplier development and socio-economic development. Although
compliance with the B-BBEE Act and the Codes of Good Practice issued in terms thereof is voluntary,
an obligation was introduced by way of an amendment to the B-BBEE Act in 2013, which became
effective in June 2016, requiring a public company, listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (“JSE”),
to submit its annual compliance report to the B-BBEE Commission, to load its compliance report on its
website and to publish a SENS announcement confirming the aforementioned steps taken.
