(the ?Acquisition?) for a total consideration of R325 000 000 to be settled in cash (?the Purchase Price?), subject to the suspensive conditions set out below:

? Approval by the Competition Authorities; and

In terms of existing DBX clients, there are no changes that are envisaged and no action needs to be taken.



Furthermore, subsequent to the Effective Date, Sygnia will apply to the Registrar of Collective Investment Schemes for a change in name of DBX to ?Sygnia Itrix?.

Shareholders are advised that Sygnia has made an offer to purchase the entire issued share capital of Gallet Group Employee Benefits Proprietary Limited (?Gallet?) from the shareholders of Gallet, being AEM Beck, CS Beck, The BC 1949 Trust, NA Karani-Desbois and JL Simpson (?the acquisition?). The acquisition is subject to the fulfilment of conditions precedent, as well as obtaining the required regulatory approvals.



Gallet is an authorised financial services provider that focuses primarily on the provision of employee benefit consulting, payroll services and liability administration to South African retirement funds. In addition, Gallet is a sponsor, consultant and administrator of the Setshaba Pension and Provident Funds, a well-established umbrella fund solution. As at 31 December 2015 Gallet had R5 billion in assets under advice and administration. The acquisition of Gallet facilitates Sygnia offering umbrella fund services, as per its stated strategic objective. Sygnia can leverage off Gallet?s administration systems, processes and a highly experienced team to offer umbrella fund services to the retirement fund market much more quickly. Sygnia has provided investment administration and asset management services to some of Gallet?s clients, including the Setshaba Funds, since 2008 and the systems and processes of the two companies are already integrated. It is the intention of Sygnia to rebrand the Setshaba Funds to the Sygnia Umbrella Retirement Fund as soon as the acquisition becomes effective and regulatory approval has been obtained.



Although the acquisition falls below the threshold of the categorisation of transactions which require disclosure in terms of the JSE?s Listings Requirements, the board of Sygnia nevertheless deems it appropriate to inform shareholders of the acquisition. The effective date of the acquisition is 1 March 2016 or alternatively the date on which the last condition precedent is fulfilled.
