DECLARATION OF SPECIAL CASH DIVIDEND


Shareholders are referred to the joint Firm Intention Announcement released on SENS on 11 August 2016 and
the circular distributed to shareholders on 14 September 2016 (“Circular”). Terms defined in the Circular shall
apply to this announcement unless otherwise stated.

Shareholders are advised that the total proceeds received by Amecor in terms of the Secequip Loan for the six
months from 1 April 2016 to 30 September 2016 amounts to R3 000 000. As provided for in the Firm Intention
Offer, the Amecor Board has resolved to return the total proceeds mentioned above to shareholders by way of
a special dividend.

Accordingly, shareholders are hereby advised that the Amecor Board has declared a gross special dividend of
3.84688 cents per ordinary share (“the Special Dividend”) payable to ordinary shareholders on
Monday, 24 October 2016. The Company has obtained the relevant South African Reserve Bank approval in
respect of the Special Dividend.

The Special Dividend will be payable from income reserves. The current local Dividend Withholding Tax
(“DWT”) rate is 15%. The gross local dividend amount is 3.84688 cents per share for shareholders exempt
from paying DWT whilst the net local dividend payable is 3.26985 cents per share for shareholders liable to
pay DWT. The issued share capital of Amecor is 77 985 337 shares. The Amecor Board has reasonably
concluded that the Company will satisfy the solvency and liquidity test immediately after distribution of the
Special Dividend and for the next 12 months. Amecor’s income tax reference number is 9381/483/84/2.
