Dividend declaration

Shareholders on the South African register will receive their interim dividend in South African Rand converted
from US dollars at the closing rate of exchange on Thursday, 24th June 2021. In order to comply with the
requirements of Strate, the relevant details are as follows:

Shareholders are hereby advised that the exchange rate to be used will be USD 1 = ZAR 14.2613. This has
been calculated as the average of the bid/ask spread at 16.00 (United Kingdom time) being the close of
business on Thursday, 24th June 2021.

In respect of the normal gross cash dividend of US$1.9 cents (27.09647 South African cents), and in terms of
the new South African Tax Act, the following dividend tax ruling only applies to those shareholders who are
registered on the South African register at close of business on Friday, 23rd July 2021. All other shareholders
are exempt. The gross dividend is for the six-month period ended 31st March 2021 and will be paid on Friday,
30th July 2021.

•   The dividend has been declared from income reserves, which funds are sourced from the Jersey holding
    company’s main bank account in Switzerland and is therefore deemed a foreign dividend.
•   The dividend withholding tax rate is 20% resulting in a net dividend of US$1.52000 cents (21.67718 South
    African cents) per share to those shareholders who are not exempt from the dividend withholding tax.

The issued number of shares at the declaration date is 35,857,512. The Company’s Jersey tax number is
CH4513.
