Steinhoff shareholders are referred to the various publications by the Company related to the separate listing of STAR on the JSE. Steinhoff announces that STAR listed on the JSE on 20 September 2017 (?the Listing?)and issued 750 million new STAR shares under a private placement in a book that was 4.8 times oversubscribed, raising an aggregate amount of R15.4 billion (?the Private Placement?). The proceeds from the Private Placement (net of costs) were distributed by STAR to subsidiaries of Steinhoff (?the Distribution?).



Post the listing, STAR shares traded consistently above the listing price of R20.50 per share. Subsequently, STAR?s stabilisation manager (Citi Bank) exercised a call option to purchase a further 50 million existing STAR ordinary shares (?the Overallotment Shares?) from Steinhoff for delivery to external STAR shareholders under an overallotment option.



Accordingly, the listing of STAR resulted in the placement of an aggregate of 800 million STAR shares and total capital raised of approximately R16.4 billion. Steinhoff subsidiaries received an aggregate amount of approximately R16 billion (EUR1 billion) from the Distribution and disposal of the Overallotment Shares.

STAR continues to trade above the listing price, valuing STAR at R75.6 billion as at close of business on 29 September 2017. Post all of the above transactions, Steinhoff continues to indirectly hold 76.81% of STAR?s issued share capital.



Moody?s Investors Service released a note on Steinhoff on Friday 29 September 2017 titled ?Listing of 23.19% of African Retail assets credit positive? regarding the Listing of STAR.

Steinhoff announced on 15 April 2016 that it changed its financial year end from 30 June to 30 September. To assist investors with analysing the upcoming half year results announcement for the six months ended 31 March 2017 (to be announced on 7 June 2017), Steinhoff has published unaudited consolidated financial information for the comparative six months period ended 31 March 2016 on the Group?s website www.steinhoffinternational.com.
17-May-2017
(Official Notice)
Shareholders of Steinhoff are hereby advised that the company is evaluating and initiating steps to establish the separate listing of its African retail businesses on the main board of the JSE Ltd. (?JSE?) (the ?Listing?).



Prior to the Listing, Steinhoff will consolidate its African retail businesses, with assets including Pepkor South Africa and rest of Africa, JD Group, Unitrans Automotive, Steinbuild, Poco South Africa and Tekkie Town (collectively, ?Steinhoff Africa Retail Assets?), under a single holding company (?ListCo?).



The Steinhoff Africa Retail Assets are comprised of highly recognisable retail brands that have an extensive retail footprint and impressive growth track-record, both in South Africa and the rest of Africa.



Rationale

Steinhoff will continue to own a controlling interest in ListCo and it is the vision of Steinhoff to create a diversified multi-format listed retail company of significant size and scale with its roots in Africa.



The Listing will result in Steinhoff?s African retail exposure being held through a separately listed entity which can be independently valued as an emerging market, African-focused retail company. The establishment of a listed reference price for the Steinhoff Africa Retail Assets will avoid these assets being undervalued.



A separation of Steinhoff?s emerging market retail business and developed market retail business will be a natural progression for the respective businesses given the divergent strategic focus in each market.



Timing

ListCo has appointed Citigroup Global Markets Ltd., Investec Bank Ltd., Morgan Stanley - Co International Plc and Rand Merchant Bank (a division of FirstRand Bank Ltd.) to advise on the proposed Listing.



Any decision to proceed with the Listing will be subject to a number of factors, including, inter alia, market conditions and regulatory approvals. It is contemplated that the Listing will be completed in the third quarter of 2017.



The Listing will include a capital raise to achieve the required public shareholder spread, with Steinhoff retaining control in ListCo.



Cautionary Announcement

The Listing may have a material effect on the price of the securities of Steinhoff. Accordingly, shareholders are required to exercise caution when dealing in the company?s shares until a further announcement is made.

(Official Notice)
The Frankfurt Stock Exchange (?FSE?) contacted the company at 11:30 CET to inform it that the company's shares had been suspended from trading on the FSE until close of business today, due to the FSE?s systems having captured divergent information on the ex- entitlement date for shares traded on the FSE. The FSE's systems incorrectly reflected 30 November 2016 as the first ex-entitlement date, rather than 1 December 2016 as communicated by the company on 15 November and 22 November 2016.



As a result of the divergent information, trading was technically suspended on the FSE until 12h35 CET after the divergent information had been corrected in the FSE's system, at which point trade recommenced. Shareholders are advised that Steinhoff shares are today (30 November 2016) trading on the FSE cum-dividend and will only commence trading on the FSE ex-dividend on 1 December 2016. Shares trading on the JSE commenced trading ex-dividend today, 30 November 2016.



The company is working with the FSE in order to ensure that such discrepancy should not arise in future.
