HIGH COURT SETS ASIDE PUBLIC PROTECTOR’S REMEDIAL ACTIONS

Barclays Africa Group shareholders are advised that the North Gauteng High Court delivered its
judgment in the matter between Absa Bank (Absa) and the Public Protector on Friday.

As indicated on 20 June 2017, Absa applied to the High Court to set aside the Public Protector’s
final report and its remedial actions, which included recovering R1.125bn from Absa relating to
its acquisition of Bankorp in April 1992.

The High Court found in Absa’s favour by setting aside the Public Protector’s remedial actions
and awarding punitive costs against the Public Protector.
