RESULTS OF GENERAL MEETING AND FINALISATION ANNOUNCEMENT

Unitholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 2 July 2015 wherein they were advised that
Fountainhead had posted a circular, incorporating a notice of general meeting, to unitholders, relating to a proposed
transaction in terms of which Fountainhead will dispose of all its assets, including the entire Fountainhead property
portfolio, to Redefine Properties Limited (“Redefine”), in exchange for 85 Redefine consideration shares for every
100 Fountainhead units in issue and the assumption by Redefine of all of Fountainhead’s liabilities, including
Fountainhead’s interest-bearing debt (the “transaction”).

The transaction is being treated as a related party transaction in terms of the JSE Listings Requirements as (i) Redefine
owns approximately 65.9% of Fountainhead’s issued units and (ii) Redefine is the sole, controlling shareholder of
FPTML, the manager of Fountainhead. In addition, in terms of Board Notice 42 of 2014 under the Collective
Investment Schemes Control Act, 2002 (the “Notice”), the resolution required to be passed in order to approve the
transaction (the “resolution”) was required to be approved by at least 75% of the total number of votes exercisable by
Fountainhead unitholders (which for the purposes of the Notice equates to 75% in value) present in person or
represented by proxy and entitled to vote at the general meeting, excluding Redefine and any of its associates.
Accordingly, while the Fountainhead units held or controlled by Redefine and its associates (and accordingly those of
FPTML, the manager of Fountainhead) were taken into account for the purposes of determining a quorum at the
general meeting at which the resolution was considered, they were not taken into account for voting purposes.

Unitholders are advised that at the general meeting of Fountainhead held on Friday, 24 July 2015, the resolution
required to be passed in order to approve the transaction was passed by the requisite majority of unitholders.

Details of the results of voting at the general meeting are as follows:

-        total number of Fountainhead units that could have been voted at the general meeting: 396 562 959 (being the
         total number of issued Fountainhead units, excluding those held by Redefine and its associates); and
-        total number of Fountainhead units that were present/represented at the general meeting: 200 044 165 (being
         50.44% of the total number of Fountainhead units that were eligible to vote at the meeting and 17.20% of the
         total number of issued Fountainhead units).
