Notes:

1.   All dates and times may be changed by mutual agreement between SecureData and MB Tech (subject to the approval
     of the JSE and/or the Panel, if required). The dates have been determined based on certain assumptions regarding the
     date by which certain regulatory approvals will have been obtained and that no Court approval or review of the special
     resolution required to approve the implementation of the Scheme will be required. Any change in the dates and times
     will be released on SENS and published in the South African press.
2.   SecureData Shareholders should note that, as transactions in Shares are settled in the electronic settlement system
     used by Strate, settlement of trades takes place five Business Days after such trade. Therefore, SecureData
     Shareholders who acquire SecureData Shares after close of trade on Friday, 3 January 2014 will not be eligible to vote
     at the General Meeting.
3.   All times given in this document are local times in South Africa.
4.   Share certificates in respect of SecureData Shares may not be dematerialised or rematerialised after Friday, 21
     February 2014.
5.   If the Scheme is approved by an insufficient number of Scheme Members at the General Meeting so that a Scheme
     Member may require SecureData to obtain Court approval of the Scheme, as contemplated in section 115(3)(a) of the
     Companies Act, and a Scheme Member in fact delivers such a request, the dates and times set out above will not be
     relevant. SecureData Shareholders will be notified separately of the applicable dates and times under this process.
6.   If any Scheme Member who votes against the Scheme exercises its rights in accordance with section 115(3)(b) of the
     Companies Act applies to Court for a review of the transaction, the dates and times set out above will not be relevant.
     SecureData Shareholders will be notified separately of the applicable dates and times under this process.
7.   If the General Meeting is adjourned or postponed, forms of proxy (yellow) submitted for the initial General Meeting will
     remain valid in respect of any adjournment or postponement of the General Meeting.
