In compliance with the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, shareholders are advised of the following off-market
acceptances of options and shares in respect of ordinary shares on 1 December 2016 by Directors of Mr Price
Group Limited.

The routine long term incentive schemes (LTI’s) were designed to be rolling in nature, such that shares vesting on an
annual basis would be replaced by additional awards. This transaction represents the ‘top up award’ for those LTI’s
vesting in November 2016.
