Notice to Stenprop shareholders in respect of an election to receive either a cash dividend or a scrip dividend

STENPROP LIMITED

(Registration number 64865)
LSE share code: STP  JSE share code: STP
ISIN: GG00BFWMR296
(“Stenprop” or the “Company”)


NOTICE TO STENPROP SHAREHOLDERS IN RESPECT OF AN ELECTION TO RECEIVE EITHER A CASH DIVIDEND OR A SCRIP DIVIDEND


2 July 2021

CASH DIVIDEND OR SCRIP DIVIDEND

On Friday, 11 June 2021 it was announced that the board of directors of the Company (the “board”) had approved and declared a final dividend
of 3.375 pence per share (the “dividend”) in respect of the six months ended 31 March 2021. It was further announced that the board intended
to offer shareholders the option to receive in respect of all or a part of their Stenprop shareholding either a scrip dividend by way of an issue of
new Stenprop shares (of the same class as existing shares) credited as fully paid up (the “scrip dividend”), or a cash dividend (the “cash dividend”).
The cash dividend will be paid to shareholders unless shareholders elect to receive the scrip dividend.

A circular in respect of the election being offered to Stenprop shareholders to receive either the cash dividend or the scrip dividend, together with
an election form (the “circular”), will be posted to shareholders today. All the terms defined in the circular shall bear the same meaning in this
announcement and any subsequent announcements relating to the dividend.

Should a shareholder validly elect to receive the scrip dividend in lieu of cash for all or part of his Stenprop shareholding, such shareholder will
become entitled to a number of new Stenprop shares which value will be as near as possible to the cash dividend such shareholder would have
otherwise received in respect of the elected shares. A shareholder’s entitlement to new Stenprop shares will be calculated by multiplying the
number of elected shares held by that shareholder at the record date by the dividend of 3.375 pence per share (converted to Rand at the Sterling
exchange rate for Stenprop shares on the SA share register) and dividing it by the scrip dividend reference price. The scrip dividend reference price
will be the average closing price of Stenprop shares traded on the London Stock Exchange (“LSE”) over a period of five days less the amount of the
cash dividend and will be announced on Tuesday, 13 July 2021.

Stenprop converted to a UK REIT on 1 May 2018. The Company may distribute dividends to shareholders either in the form of a property income
distribution (“PID”) or as an ordinary dividend (“non-PID”). Both the cash dividend and new Stenprop shares received in lieu of a cash dividend
under the scrip dividend may be paid as a PID, a non-PID or a mixture of the two. The Company will indicate whether the dividend will be paid as
a PID, a non-PID or a mixture of the two along with the scrip reference price on Tuesday, 13 July 2021. The Sterling to Rand conversion rate will be
determined on Monday, 12 July 2021 and announced on SENS on Tuesday, 13 July 2021.

The rationale for the scrip dividend is to afford shareholders the opportunity to increase their shareholding in Stenprop.

The cash dividend will be paid out of the Company’s profits and the new Stenprop shares to be issued pursuant to the scrip dividend will also be
funded from the Company’s profits.

As at the date of this announcement, the Company had 298,775,175 ordinary shares in issue with a par value of EUR0.000001258 each.

Electronic copies of the circular may be obtained from the company secretary by sending a request to Sarah.Bellilchi@stenprop.com. Due to the
current COVID-19 restrictions, hard copies of this circular will not be available at the registered address of the Company. The circular will only be
available on the website of the Company (www.stenprop.com) from Friday, 2 July 2021.
