NON-BINDING OFFER TO ACQUIRE MERCANTILE BANK HOLDINGS LIMITED
AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES (“MERCANTILE”)

Shareholders are advised that Capitec Bank, the wholly-owned
subsidiary of Capitec has made a non-binding offer to purchase
Mercantile. Mercantile’s core business offer is business
banking to small- to medium-sized enterprises and
entrepreneurs. The shareholder of Mercantile, Caixa Geral de
Depositos, S.A., a Portuguese bank, wishes to divestment from
non-core operations outside of Portugal, of which Mercantile
is one such investment.

Capitec Bank is one of a number of interested parties whose
non-binding offer to purchase Mercantile has been accepted.
Capitec Bank will now commence with a formal, in-depth due
diligence exercise to determine whether the opportunity
presented by Mercantile fulfils Capitec Bank’s expectation to
build the Capitec Bank business bank strategy.

Capitec will keep the market informed of developments as and
when appropriate. Any proposed transaction will be subject to
regulatory authority approvals.

Capitec continues to investigate strategic opportunities to
enhance shareholder value and deliver to its commitment to the
market in offering affordable, simple and transparent banking
services.
