Sycom unitholders (“Unitholders”) are referred to the joint announcement released by Sycom and

    become Growthpoint shareholders;

to be implemented in terms of the following indivisible and inter-conditional steps -

(a) Sycom will, subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions precedent, undertake an internal re-
    organisation in terms of which it shall transfer all its assets and liabilities to a wholly-owned
    subsidiary (“the Fixed Property Company”) in consideration for additional shares in that subsidiary
    (“Fixed Property Company Shares”) (the “Sycom Restructure”);
(b) Sycom will, immediately thereafter, subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions precedent, dispose
    of all of its assets (being its Fixed Property Company Shares) to Acucap, and, in consideration,
    Acucap will issue Acucap shares (“Acucap Consideration Shares”) to Sycom in the ratio of 58
    Acucap Consideration Shares for every 100 Sycom units in issue. The Acucap Consideration
    Shares shall thereafter be transferred as a distribution in specie by Sycom to Sycom Unitholders,
    to be held in escrow by SPFM on behalf of Sycom Unitholders (“the Amalgamation”); and
(c) Growthpoint will, subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions precedent, acquire all Acucap
    Consideration Shares distributed to Minority Sycom Unitholders (“Scheme Participants”) pursuant
    to the Amalgamation, by way of a scheme of arrangement in terms of section 114 of the Companies
    Act, 2008 (“the Companies Act”), in the ratio of 197 Growthpoint shares for every 100 Acucap
    Consideration Shares acquired (“the Scheme”),
