Dividend Re-Investment Price and Confirmation of Finalisation Information

Stor-Age Property REIT Limited
Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa
Registration number 2015/168454/06
Share Code: SSS ISIN ZAE000208963
Approved as a REIT by the JSE
(“Stor-Age” or “the Company”)


Shareholders are referred to the Company’s financial results announcement for the year ended
31 March 2018 released on SENS on 12 June 2018 (“the Declaration Announcement”), which
contained information relating to the declaration of a gross final cash dividend of 50.81 cents per share
(“Cash Dividend”) for the six months ended 31 March 2018 and the entitlement of shareholders to
elect to re-invest the Cash Dividend in return for Stor-Age Shares (“Share Alternative”) and are advised
that the reinvestment price is R12.32 per share (“Reinvestment Price”).

The Reinvestment Price is based on an approximate 0.72% premium to the closing price (less the Cash
Dividend of 50.81 cents per share) on 22 June 2018 and represents an approximate 0.06% discount to
the 5-day volume weighted average traded price at the close of business on 22 June 2018 (less the
Cash Dividend of 50.81 cents per share).

The ratio in respect of the Share Alternative is 4.12419 shares for every 100 shares held on the record
date by South African resident shareholders exempt from dividend tax and 3.29935 shares for every
100 shares held on the record date by non-resident shareholders subject to dividend tax at 20%.

Where a shareholder’s entitlement to the shares in relation to the Share Alternative, calculated with
reference to the above share ratio, gives rise to an entitlement to a fraction of a new share, such
fraction will be rounded down to the nearest whole number with the cash balance of the dividend
being retained by the shareholder (“Rounding Principle”).

Dividend withholding tax (“Dividend Tax”) implications:

Dividend Tax implications for South African resident shareholders:

Dividends received from a Real Estate Investment Trust (“REIT”) are exempt from Dividend Tax in the
hands of South African resident shareholders provided that the shareholders have provided the
requisite declaration as to residence as detailed in paragraph 5.2 of the circular to Stor-Age
shareholders dated 12 June 2018 (“Circular”). South African resident shareholders who have
submitted the requisite documentation and are exempt from Dividend Tax, will accordingly receive a
net dividend of 50.81 cents per share.

Dividend Tax implications for non-resident shareholders:

Dividends received from a REIT by a non-resident shareholder are subject to Dividend Tax at 20%,
unless the rate is reduced in terms of any applicable agreement for the avoidance of double taxation
(“DTA”) between South Africa and the country of residence of the non-resident shareholder. A
reduced dividend withholding tax rate in terms of the applicable DTA may only be relied upon if the
non-resident shareholder has provided the requisite documentation as detailed in paragraph 5.2 of
the Circular. Non-resident shareholders who have not submitted the requisite documentation, and
assuming that a Dividend Tax of 20% is applicable, will accordingly receive a net dividend of 40.64800
cents per share.

An example of the impact of Dividend Tax is illustrated below:
