Distribution in specie

Randgold shareholders will receive approximately 3.161 Gold Fields shares for every 100 ordinary shares held in R-E.



Shareholder approval and circular

The distributions are subject to the passing of the requisite resolutions by the shareholders of Randgold at a general meeting approving the distributions. In this regard, to the extent that the distribution in specie and the special dividend, when taken together, may be considered to be a disposal of the assets of the company as regulated by section 228 of the Companies Act, the company will seek the approval of the distributions by way of a special resolution of the shareholders, as required by section 228 of the Companies Act. A circular will be posted to shareholders in due course containing full details of the distributions and incorporating a notice convening the general meeting of shareholders.

The majority of the income recognised in the period under review was a result of two recoveries of R783.5 million and R25.2 million which flowed from the settlement with JCI and the litigation settlement agreement, respectively. Revenue for the period increased to R12 million (2009: R9.8 million). Operating income rose to R792.5 million. Profit attributable to owners of the company increased to R792.2 million, while headline earnings per share was 1122cps. Excluding the effects of the settlement, R-E is liquid with no interest- bearing debt. R-E's total assets consist primarily of cash and an investment in GFI shares. After the settlement distribution and unbundling of the company's holding of JCI shares R-E has a net asset value per share of R7.01.



Dividend

The distribution dividend payable to ordinary shareholders of the company, as approved on 28 May 2010, of R790.4 million comprises of the JCI settlement assets amounting to R791.4 million and the unbundling shares of R32 million adjusted for the portion which will be returned to the company by virtue of its three million treasury shares. That translates to a distribution of 1101cps.



Outlook

Given R-E's liquid financial position and position in the resources industry, management will focus on seeking out new opportunities, where appropriate, for the benefit of R-E and its shareholders. As in the past, a pragmatic commercial approach will be adopted in dealing with the outstanding legal claims.

Business Day highlighted that after nearly five years of suspension following the murder of its former CEO Brett Kebble, mining company Randgold - Exploration (R-E) resumed trading on the JSE. The company was suspended on 1 August 2005, after USD268 million worth of stock it held in UK-based Randgold Resources went missing.

According to Business Report, shareholders of Randgold - Exploration ("R-E") are to share in a capital distribution of R950 million that was plundered by the late Brett Kebble. The money is a net settlement between the company and JCI. This marks the end of a five-year-long bitter dispute between the two companies. Both R-E and JCI were suspended in August 2005 for not submitting financial statements. Kebble was chief executive at both companies until he was booted out in August 2005. Three months after R-E's suspension and a month after Kebble's so-called assisted suicide, a forensic report revealed massive fraud had taken place during his reign.

Shareholders are referred to the SENS announcement of Randgold dated 12 June 2009, in which shareholders were informed that the settlement as envisaged in the memorandum of understanding concluded between R-E, JCI Ltd and JCI Investment Finance (Pty) Ltd on 5 May 2009 had not been achieved by the target date and further, that while the board of R-E remained hopeful that a settlement could still be achieved, all options were being assessed, including arbitration.



On 31 August 2009, the companies signed a settlement agreement subject to the fulfillment of a number of suspensive conditions. One such condition required certain shareholders of JCI and R-E to furnish irrevocable undertakings within two business days of the signature of the Settlement Agreement to support the settlement agreement and to vote in favour of the resolutions to be passed at shareholders meetings of R-E and JCI. Such irrevocable undertakings were however not forthcoming resulting in the settlement agreement lapsing. On 16 September 2009, the companies re-signed the settlement agreement however the same suspensive condition had once again not been fulfilled. Shareholders are therefore advised that the settlement agreement has lapsed due to the non-fulfillment of the suspensive condition referred to above. Due to the lapsing of the re-signed settlement agreement, R-E will be referring the disputes between it and JCI to arbitration in terms of the mediation and arbitration agreement concluded between it and JCI on 7 April 2006. Instructions have been given to R-E's legal team to make the necessary arrangements in this regard.



Shareholders are cautioned that R-E's claims against JCI are yet to be proven and the board of R-E cannot predict the outcome thereof. The board will at all times consider the commercial viability of the claims and will keep shareholders informed of developments.

As previously disclosed in the various announcements made by the company during the course of this year, the board of R-E has continued to endeavour to resolve the impasse between R-E and JCI Ltd ("JCI") (collectively referred to as "the companies"). Such endeavours have included the proposed merger by way of a scheme of arrangement ("the scheme") in terms of section 311 of the Companies Act (61 of 1973) as amended ("the Act") proposed by R-E between R-E and the shareholders of JCI (excluding R-E) ("the JCI scheme participants"), which proposed merger failed when the requisite majority of JCI scheme participants declined to approve the scheme on 9 April 2009. This was soon followed by the signing of a memorandum of understanding ("MOU") between inter alia R-E and JCI on 5 May 2009, with a view to settling the claims between the companies on or before 31 May 2009. The settlement as envisaged in the MOU was not achieved by the target date. The board of R-E remains hopeful, however, that a settlement may still be achieved but continues to assess all options at its disposal, including arbitration.



Notwithstanding the continued inability of R-E to produce meaningful annual financial statements, as a result of the well-publicised alleged misappropriation of the company's assets, the present board of R-E nevertheless aims to provide R-E shareholders with appropriate financial information as timeously as possible under the circumstances. In this regard, shareholders are informed that an information update comprising an updated net asset value statement for the R-E group (at 31 March 2009), together with other relevant information concerning settlement negotiations between the companies, the conclusion of the MOU, an update as to R-E's litigation and claims against third parties, and R-E's future strategy, will be available on R-E's website.

R-E Chairman, David Nurek, and CEO, Peter Gray, announced their resignations on 10 July and 11 July 2008 respectively. In his capacity as acting chairman of R-E, independent non-executive director, David Kovarsky made the following announcement:

*As a consequence of the mediation process, R-E and JCI Ltd ("JCI") have been endeavouring to effect a merger of the companies since 23 April 2007.

*Regulatory approvals necessary for the proposed merger have not yet been secured.

*In the interim, the boards of R-E and JCI have been engaged in negotiations regarding a possible settlement between the companies, however agreement has not yet been reached.

*The board of R-E will continue to pursue all options open to it, but cautions that the less attractive option of arbitration remains a distinct possibility, despite the costs and delays associated therewith.

The R-E board has noted a website published by anonymous parties claiming to be R-E shareholders. The board disclaims the information contained on the website (other than where it records statements issued in the name of R-E) and in particular cautions shareholders not to be influenced by the speculative Net Asset Values contained on the website and refers shareholders to the Net Asset Value Statement for the year ended 31 March 2007 published by R-E on 13 December 2007.



R-E is currently preparing an information circular for shareholders which will contain an updated NAV statement and will inform shareholders of the actions being taken by it to recover shareholder funds from various third parties on the basis of ongoing forensic investigations.

Business Day noted that Randgold's proven and probable gold reserves increased to 7.78 million ounces at the end of December from 6.29 million at the end of December 2006. The rise is due to ongoing exploration at the Loulo mine in Mali and the Tongon project in Cote d'Ivoire.

(Media Comment)
In an article in the Business Report, Randgold CE Peter Gray denied reports that the company was insolvent. His comments followed a report in the Sunday Times which stated that around R2 billion of Randgolds assets had disappeared under the leadership of Brett Kebble. The ANC, amongst others, was believed to have been the beneficiary of a large portion of the funds. Gray was misquoted by the paper, his comments were that the company was "undoubtedly solvent". On the issue of the leaked content of the forensic audit report (due to be formally released on 1 April 06), Gray thought that, " it could have been an attempt to deflect attention or to put pressure on the directors to change course." Randgold is owed somewhere between R1 billion and R1.5 billion by JCI.

(Official Notice)
The directors of Randgold were formally advised on 24 January 2006 that Societe Generale had sold 4 million Randgold Resources Ltd shares in terms of a scrip lending arrangement between them (Societe Generale) and Randgold. The scrip lending shares were being held on behalf of Randgold by SocGen. The scrip lending shares as well as the as yet unaccounted for Randgold Resources Ltd shares held by Randgold are the subject matter of an ongoing forensic investigation. SocGen contends that it was entitled to effect the sale of the scrip lending shares in terms of the arrangement. The directors are not able to comment further at this stage.



The circumstances that led to the scrip lending arrangement referred to above, including the role and responsibility of JCI Ltd, are also the subject of the forensic investigation currently under way at Randgold. The sale of the 4 million scrip lending shares by SocGen and any other Randgold Resources Ltd shares held by Randgold, will be dealt with in Randgold's financial results, having regard to the findings of the forensic investigation, which are scheduled for release in March 2006.



Furthermore, the directors advise shareholders that the Listing and Hearing Review Council of the Nasdaq stock market affirmed an earlier decision to delist Randgold and rejected an appeal against the delisting of the company's securities from the Nasdaq stock market (which was effective from 21 September 2005), on the grounds that the company does not comply with the filing requirements.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the forensic audit is expected to be delayed for an additional two months beyond the targeted completion date of 31 December 2005. Forensic auditors were appointed on 11 October 2005 to assess various transactions, and any other issues identified during the audit and/or by the directors. Substantial progress has been made in the forensic audit. However, the scope of the investigation has been revisited to address further issues not originally identified. The investigation has revealed prima facie evidence that there has been misappropriation of company assets, including during prior financial periods. Work is in progress to determine the exact extent of the misappropriation, which could be substantial, as well as to initiate, if necessary, the relevant legal processes, including the necessary actions for the recovery of misappropriated assets. It is planned to have KPMG commence in January 2006 a review of the annual financial statements for the financial year ended 31 December 2004 and the period to June 2005. Assuming that no further unforeseen issues become known in the interim, publication of preliminary results is anticipated by the end of the first quarter of 2006. R-E shares are currently suspended on the JSE and delisted on Nasdaq due to the delay in the publication of the annual financial statements. Shareholders are advised not to rely on prior period financial statements. Shareholders will be kept informed of further developments.

31 Oct 2005 16:46:40
(Official Notice)
The general meeting of the company scheduled for Tuesday, 15 November 2005, at 10h00 for has been postponed until further notice. The reason for the postponement is that the previously announced forensic audit and internal investigation of the company and its financial statements is ongoing. The forensic audit and internal investigation are in regard to, amongst other things, those issues specifically earmarked for discussion at the general meeting. Until this process is complete, the board believes any such discussion would be premature and not in the best interest of shareholders and could possibly undermine the results of the forensic audit and internal investigation. It is currently anticipated the forensic audit and internal investigation will be completed by end of 2005, after which KPMG will recommence the audit of the financial statements, which will then be published as soon as possible thereafter. There can be no assurance that the results of the forensic audit and internal investigation will not impact the company's previously issued financial statements and earnings releases or what any impact will be until the forensic audit and internal investigation are completed. As a result, investors are cautioned to not rely on those prior year financial statements and earnings releases until the forensic audit and internal investigation are completed and the company has published its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2004.

(Official Notice)
Peter Gray, CEO of Randgold issued the following update to shareholders on 6 October 05:

KPMG has been requested to complete a full audit of the accounts for the financial year ended 31 December 2004, including the work already done by the previous auditors, Charles Orbach - Company. Publication of the Annual Report is now targeted for end-November 2005. Shareholders will be notified should this date change. The Annual Report will include a review of Randgold's direct and indirect shareholding in Randgold Resources Ltd (RRL) and all relevant transactions. The board will appoint a forensic auditor to assess the transactions relating to Randgold's direct and indirect shareholding in RRL and any scrip lending transactions; as well as any other issues identified by KPMG and the directors.



The General Meeting:

At the request of shareholders, a General Meeting of shareholders will be convened on 11 November 2005.



The impact of the death of Mr Brett Kebble:

It is not anticipated that the restructuring of the board or the publication of the audited accounts will be further delayed by the tragic death of Mr Kebble. The restructuring of the board continues, with the appointment of additional non-executive directors to follow in due course. Mr Kebble had indicated his willingness to assist the auditors and management with any questions relating to transactions supervised by him during his tenure as CEO. At this stage it does not, however, appear that his death will have a material impact on the audit process or the timetable for communicating with shareholders.



A commitment to transparency and accuracy:

The board is committed to publishing a full account of the events relating to the affairs of Randgold when such information has been independently verified. In addition to the foregoing, the company will issue updates on SENS in respect of the affairs of the company.



22 Sep 2005 08:00:49
(Official Notice)
The Group`s auditors, Charles Orbach - Co., have notified Randgold of their resignation from the audit of the Company`s financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2004. The reason given for the resignation was that material financial information to conduct and complete the audit was not available timeously. KPMG Inc. has agreed to accept the appointment as auditors to Randgold, subject to completing certain client acceptance procedures. Randgold remains committed to finalising and publishing its audited results as of and for the year ended 31 December 2004 as soon as is practicably possible, and to complete and file its Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission shortly thereafter.



The delisting notice followed the Company`s filing with The Nasdaq National Market of a compliance plan requesting an extension of time for the Company to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules. The Company supported its request for an extension at a hearing held before the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel. The Company currently intends to appeal the delisting decision to the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council, however, such appeal will stay the delisting and there can be no assurance that any such appeal would be successful. The Company is currently examining other available trading alternatives for its securities in the United States, including Over-the-Counter (`OTC`) trading.

20 Jul 2005 17:18:27
(Official Notice)
In response to the notice from Nasdaq Brett Kebble stated, `We are aware that we are late in filing a Form 20-F but the problem is now almost resolved. Randgold has been unable to complete its financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2004 because it has been unable to gather all the information it needed from some of its investments in Africa. Our accounting team has worked hard to gather the outstanding information and hope to finalise as soon as possible. We intend to seek a hearing with Nasdaq, in terms of the exchange`s procedures.`
20 Jul 2005 16:26:49
(Official Notice)
Randgold announced that on 18 July 2005 the company received a notice from the Nasdaq staff indicating that the company is not in compliance with Nasdaq`s requirements for the continued listing due to the failure to timely file its Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2004, as required under Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14) and that therefore its securities are subject to delisting from The Nasdaq Stock Market. The notice does not by itself result in immediate delisting of the company`s securities. The company expects to make a timely request for a hearing with the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to review the Nasdaq staff`s determination which will stay the delisting pending the hearing and a determination by the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel. There can be no assurance that the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel will grant the company`s request for continued listing. The Form 20-F for the year ended 31 December 2004 has been delayed pending completion of its financial statements. As previously indicated, the company has experienced delays in obtaining information necessary to finalise its audited financial statements and to analyse the financial statements. The company is working diligently to complete its audited financial statements and will file its Form 20-F as soon as practicable thereafter.
04 Jul 2005 10:47:19
(Official Notice)
Randgold`s listing on the JSESETS system has been annotated with an `RE` to indicate that the company has failed to submit its annual reports timeously and that the listing of its securities is under threat of suspension and possible termination. Should the company still fail to submit its annual reports by Friday, 29 July 2005, its listing will be suspended.

The net profit of R120 million for the year ended 31 December 2004, which is a decrease of 32% from the net profit of R177 million for the previous year, was mainly as a consequence of the lesser income from Randgold Resources, both in terms of the attributable earnings and sale of shares in Randgold Resources. Randgold Resources attributable production declined to 204 194 ounces of gold in 2004 from 317 597 in 2003 and cash costs increased to USD158/oz in 2004 from USD76/oz in 2003. Randgold Resources` net profit declined on the back of the poorer production results to USD20.1 million in 2004 from USD47.5 million in 2003. Randgold`s attributable earnings from Randgold Resources declined in line with the fall in earnings of Randgold Resources, and also because of the decline in shareholding from 37% to 31%. Randgold disposed of 3.2 million Randgold Resources shares during the year at a net profit of R134 million. Randgold`s interest in Randgold Resources now stands at 31%. As a consequence of the further appreciation of the rand during 2004, the investment in Randgold Resources was affected by an unrealised foreign exchange loss on conversion of R57 million.
