BROAD-BASED BLACK ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT ACT: ANNUAL COMPLIANCE REPORT

In accordance with the JSE Listings Requirements, applicable to the Company having a secondary
listing on the JSE, notice is hereby given that the Company’s annual compliance report in terms of
section 13G(2) of the South African Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act, 53 of 2003, as
amended, (the “B-BBEE Act”) was submitted to the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment
Commission (the “BEE Commission”). The compliance report is available in the governance section
of Mediclinic’s website at www.mediclinic.com.

The compliance report relates to the assessment of the broad-based black economic empowerment
status of Mediclinic Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, in respect of
the Company’s operations in South Africa.

About the B-BBEE Act

The B-BBEE Act was enacted to establish a legislative framework for the promotion of broad-based
black economic empowerment in South Africa and is intended to encourage transformation by including
black people in the economy. It covers aspects such as ownership, management control, skills
development, enterprise and supplier development and social-economic development. Although
compliance with the B-BBEE Act and the Codes of Good Practice issued in terms thereof is voluntary,
an obligation was introduced by way of an amendment to the B-BBEE Act in 2013, which became
effective in June 2016, to require public companies listed on the JSE to report on their broad-based
black economic empowerment status to the BEE Commission.
