ASSET SWAP INVESTMENTS CONCLUDED

Further to the investment update released on the Stock Exchange News Service on 2 February
2018, shareholders are advised that Sabvest has implemented the R300m asset swap from rands
to US dollars referred to therein. Based on the experience of years of investing in its existing
offshore general portfolio and its direct participation in numerous technology investments and
boards over a number of decades, Sabvest resolved to utilise a meaningful portion of its cash
resources to establish a larger bespoke technology portfolio. This has been concluded in the
dollar equivalent amount of R208m as follows:
