CHANGE IN AUDIT FIRM DUE TO MERGER
Shareholders are advised in terms of paragraph 3.78 of the Listings Requirements of JSE Limited
(“Listings Requirements”) that Cognition has been informed by its audit firm, Grant Thornton
Johannesburg Partnership (“Grant Thornton”), that there has been a change in its network firm
membership from Grant Thornton to BDO South Africa Inc (“BDO”). The change was initiated following
the merger of Grant Thornton and BDO on 1 December 2018.
Accordingly, the audit firm of the Company is now BDO and the designated audit partner, Jacques
Barradas, will remain unchanged.
The Audit and Risk Committee of the Company will, in due course, follow the process detailed in
paragraph 3.84(g)(iii) of the Listings Requirements as the Company is deemed to be appointing BDO
for the first time. This process will be completed before the audit firm signs its next audit report.
