TENDER OFFER PRICE IN RESPECT OF THE TENDER OFFER
The tender offer price per share in respect of the Tender Offer has been calculated using the
volume weighted average traded price for a Quantum ordinary share (“Share”) traded on the
JSE over the 10 trading days ending on Friday, 3 August 2018 (which price was R4.26324),
plus a 5% premium of R0.21316 (“Tender Offer Price”). Accordingly, shareholders are
advised that the gross Tender Offer Price is therefore R4.47640 per Share (“Gross Tender
Offer Price”) and that the net Tender Offer Price is R3.58112 per Share (“Net Tender Offer
Price”). The determination of the Net Tender Offer Price and dividend tax is set out below.
Shareholders who elect to sell their Shares in terms of the Tender Offer will each receive either
the Gross Tender Offer Price per Share or the Net Tender Offer Price per Share, depending
on their status in relation to dividend tax as detailed below.
Shareholders who elect to sell their Shares in terms of the Tender Offer for the Tender Offer
Price will receive:
• if they are exempt from dividend tax, the full Gross Tender Offer Price per Share sold;
• if they are not exempt from dividend tax, the Net Tender Offer Price per Share sold.
The reason for the lower Net Tender Offer Price is because the Tender Offer is subject to the
withholding of dividend tax at a rate of 20%, in respect of those shareholders (i.e. beneficial
owners) who are not exempt from dividend tax and, accordingly, the Net Tender Offer Price
amounts to R3.58112 per Share after deducting dividend tax at a rate of 20% from the Gross
Tender Offer Price per Share.
The Tender Offer Price will be paid from revenue reserves.
