(“MAS” or “the Company”)


As announced on 29 February 2016, a final distribution of 2.27 euro cents per share was proposed. Shareholders are
now advised that the board of the Company has approved the interim distribution of 2.27 euro cents per share for the
six months ended 31 December 2015 (the “Distribution”). The Distribution will be paid to those entitled to it by way of
an issue of new ordinary shares of no par value in MAS (“New Shares”) credited as fully paid, except for those
shareholders who elect to receive the Distribution by way of a cash payment in lieu of New Shares (the “Cash

The number of New Shares to which shareholders are entitled will be determined with reference to the ratio that 2.27
euro cents per share bears to the relevant share price (the “Ratio Price”). The Ratio Price is a five percent discount to
the five-day volume weighted average price of MAS shares on the JSE at the close of business on Thursday, 7 April
2016, converted to euro at the closing exchange rate on the same day, and will be announced on Friday, 8 April 2016.

For shareholders on the South African share register, the euro to rand conversion rate for the calculation of the rand
equivalent distribution amount will be the closing exchange rate on Thursday, 7 April 2016 and will be announced on
Friday, 8 April 2016. The New Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing shares in the Company.

The rationale for the issue of New Shares is to afford shareholders the opportunity to increase their shareholding in
the Company and retain the Company’s flexibility on cash resources. In line with the Company’s policy, the
Distribution is funded out of adjusted core income.

As at the date of this announcement, the Company has 315 773 079 ordinary no par value shares in issue.

A notice to MAS shareholders in respect of the Distribution, together with accompanying election forms, has been
posted to shareholders today, Wednesday, 30 March 2016.

Tax considerations

There is no withholding tax payable in the British Virgin Islands.

South African resident shareholders

The issue of New Shares or the Cash Distribution may have tax implications for shareholders.

The receipt of New Shares by South African resident shareholders will not be classified as a dividend or a foreign
dividend for South African tax purposes and accordingly no South African dividends tax will be levied on the New
Shares. Shareholders should nonetheless seek independent professional tax advice. For those South African resident
shareholders receiving the Cash Distribution, such amount may be regarded as a foreign dividend and if it is, may be
subject to South African dividends tax at a rate of 15%, unless an exemption as set out in the South African Income
Tax legislation applies.

Shareholders residing outside South Africa

The issue of New Shares or the Cash Distribution may have legal or tax implications for shareholders residing outside
of South Africa and such shareholders are advised to obtain appropriate advice from their professional advisers in this

MAS is dual primary listed on the Main Board of the JSE and the Euro MTF Market of the LuxSE.
