Change statement and Notice of AGM

Premium Properties Limited
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)
(Registration number 1994/003601/06)
Share code: PMM
ISIN: ZAE 000009254
REIT status approved


Unitholders are referred to Premium's reviewed condensed consolidated financial results for the year
ended 28 February 2014 released on SENS on 6 May 2014 (“the reviewed results”).

There have been no changes to the reviewed results, with the exception of the calculation of headline
earnings per share (“HEPS”) and the statement of cash flows.

The aforementioned changes arose as a result of Premium having received an extraordinary dividend
from IPS Investments Proprietary Limited (“IPS”), an investee company of Premium, which was
included in Premium's reserves and deducted when calculating HEPS at the time of issuing the
reviewed results.

The disclosure of earnings per share/linked unit and headline earnings per share/linked unit, while
obligatory in terms of IAS33 – “Earnings per share” and the JSE Listings Requirements, is not
meaningful to investors in a REIT as the calculations include certain non-distributable items. The
calculation of distributable earnings and distribution per share/linked unit is more meaningful.

The effect of this change on HEPS in the audited results for the year ended 28 February 2014 is as
set out below.
