    Shareholders are advised that following feedback from key Shareholders on   
    the terms of the proposed B-BBEE Transaction, the Company is considering    
amending the lock-in period of the AECI Employees Share Trust from seven    
    years to ten years.                                                         
    Accordingly, Shareholders are advised that at the general meeting held      
    today ("the General Meeting"), all the Special Resolutions as set out in    
the notice of the General Meeting were withdrawn.                           
    The following Ordinary Resolutions were approved by the requisite           
    majority of ordinary Shareholders:                                          
    -    Ordinary Resolution number 1 relating to the placement of 4 678 667    
AECI ordinary shares under the control of the directors and            
         authorising the directors to issue those shares only for the purpose   
         of the proposed transaction between AECI and a consortium led by       
         Kagiso Tiso Holdings Proprietary Limited (RF); and                     
-    Ordinary Resolution number 2 authorising any director of AECI to       
         take all such action as may be necessary or incidental to give         
         effect to the resolutions proposed and passed.

    outcome of the Company`s further consideration regarding the terms of the   
    proposed B-BBEE Transaction will be made in due course.
