Shareholders are advised that on Wednesday, 25 August 2021, NVest received a non-binding
expression of interest (“EOI”) from a consortium of investors made up of the Godwin Trust, the
Gavin Ramsay Family Trust and the Rayner Sparg Trust (“the Consortium”).
The EOI is in respect of a possible transaction whereby the Consortium would acquire 100% of all
the issued ordinary shares in NVest not already held by related parties, directors and management
of NVest, excluding any treasury shares (“the Transaction”).
If the Transaction is successfully implemented, which would be done by way of a scheme of
arrangement in terms of section 114 of the Companies Act, 71 of 2008, and which would be
subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions precedent, application will be made to the JSE for
the issued ordinary shares of NVest to be delisted.
The Consortium’s indicative offer price is R2.10 (210 cents) per share, payable in cash.
The EOI, which contains terms and conditions customary for a transaction of this nature, does not
constitute an offer or a firm intention to make an offer as contemplated by the Companies Act
Regulation 101. It is possible that no offer may result from this process.
The Transaction may have a material effect on the price of the Company’s securities.
Accordingly, pending further announcements, shareholders are advised to exercise caution when
dealing in the Company’s securities.
The Board, and the Independent Board, which has recently been appointed, each accepts
responsibility for the information contained in this announcement to the extent that it relates to the
Company. To the best of their knowledge and belief, the information contained in this
announcement is true and nothing has been omitted which is likely to affect the importance of
