Notes:
1.   All dates and times may be changed by mutual agreement between Kelly and Adcorp (subject to the approval of the JSE
     and/or the Takeover Regulation 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.   Kelly 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, Kelly Shareholders who acquire
     Kelly Shares after close of trade on Friday, 5 September 2014 will not be eligible to vote at the Scheme Meeting.
3.   All times given in this document are local times in South Africa.
4.   Kelly Shares may not be dematerialised or rematerialised after the Scheme LDT, which is expected to be Friday,
     14 November 2014.
5.   If the Scheme is approved by an insufficient number of Scheme Members at the Scheme Meeting so that a Scheme
     Member may require Kelly 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. If this is the case, Kelly 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 and applies to Court for a review of the transaction, the dates and times set out above will not be
     relevant. If this is the case, Kelly Shareholders will be notified separately of the applicable dates and times under this
     process.
7.   If the Scheme Meeting is adjourned or postponed, forms of proxy submitted for the initial Scheme Meeting will remain
     valid in respect of any adjournment or postponement of the Scheme Meeting.
