Shareholders are advised that the transaction is subject to the fulfilment or waiver, as the case may be, of certain
conditions precedent, further details of which are set out in the circular. One of the conditions precedent is the requisite
majorities of Tsogo shareholders passing all the resolutions (including those required in terms of the Listings
Requirements and the Companies Act) required to authorise and approve the transaction and its implementation. With
reference to the SENS announcement released by Tsogo on 23 October 2018, shareholders are advised that the Tsogo
general meeting to approve the transaction and its implementation has been adjourned to 09:00 on Monday,
12 November 2018. A further SENS announcement setting out the salient dates and times for the implementation of
the transaction will be released on SENS once all the outstanding conditions precedent have been fulfilled or waived,
as the case may be.
