Currency conversion                                                             
The currency conversion at close of business (CAT) on 4 April 2011 was 1 South  
African Rand =  22.926 Naira. Accordingly, the dividend of three Naira (Naira   
3.00) per ordinary share equates to 13.0856 South African cents per ordinary    
Withholding tax                                                                 
Shareholders are advised that a withholding tax of 10% is payable by all        
shareholders on the dividend. Accordingly the dividend net of withholding tax is
Two Naira Seventy Kobo (Naira 2.70) 11.77702 South African cents per ordinary   
Listing of bonus shares                                                         
It is intended that the last day to trade in order to qualify for the bonus     
shares will be Tuesday, 19 April 2011 and the record date will be 29 April 2011.
It is anticipated that the bonus shares will be issued and listed by 31 August  
2011 and shareholders` accounts with Central Securities Depository Participants 
and brokers will be credited in South Africa with bonus shares or issue of new  
share certificates in respect of the bonus issue posted by the same day.        
Shareholders are advised that they may not trade in their new bonus shares until
they have been issued.                                                          
Rounding principle                                                              
The allocation of bonus shares will be such that shareholders will not be       
allocated a fraction of a bonus share and therefore any bonus share giving rise 
to a fraction of less than one of a bonus share will be rounded down to the     
nearest whole number. This is applicable to investors on both the Nigerian and  
South African share register.
