MAS Real Estate Inc.
Registered in the British Virgin Islands
Registration number 1750199
JSE share code: MSP
ISIN: VGG5884M1041
LEI: 213800T1TZPGQ7HS4Q13
(“MAS” or the “Company”)



As announced on Monday, 26 February 2018, an interim distribution of 3.58 euro cents per share was
proposed. Shareholders are now advised that the board of the Company has approved the interim distribution
of 3.58 euro cents per share for the six month period ended 31 December 2017 (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 Distribution”).

The number of New Shares to which shareholders are entitled will be determined with reference to the ratio
that 3.58 euro cents per share bears to the reference price (being a five percent discount to the five-day
volume weighted average price (“Reference Price”) of MAS shares on the JSE Limited (“JSE”) on Tuesday,
13 March 2018). For shareholders on the South African share register, the euro to rand conversion rate for the
calculation of the rand equivalent distribution amount (“Conversion Rate”) will be announced on Tuesday,
13 March 2018.

The New Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing shares in the Company.

The rationale for the issue of the New Shares is to afford shareholders the opportunity to increase their
shareholding in the Company and retain the Company’s flexibility on cash resources. The Cash Distribution
will be funded from distributable reserves and the issue of New Shares by way of a return of capital.

As at the date of this announcement, the Company has 646 765 786 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, 7 March 2018.

Tax Considerations


Shareholders are advised to consult their own tax advisors with regard to their individual tax liability,
circumstances and reporting responsibilities.

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

South African resident shareholders

The issue of New Shares by the return of capital and the Cash Distribution may have tax implications for
South African resident shareholders.

For 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 20% unless an exemption as set out in the South
African Income Tax legislation applies.

The receipt of New Shares from the return of capital 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. There could however be other tax implications (either
immediately or at the time of disposal) so shareholders should seek independent professional tax advice.

Shareholders residing outside of 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 regard.
