  FURTHER INFORMATION PROVIDED BY NEDBANK GROUP LIMITED IN RESPECT OF THE HOLDINGS OF
 CERTAIN NON-SOUTH AFRICAN SHAREHOLDERS, FOLLOWING THE UNBUNDLING OF THE MAJORITY OF
                               NEDBANK SHARES HELD BY OLD MUTUAL LIMITED.

Nedbank Group Limited (“Nedbank”) have published on their website further information to provide assistance to non-
South African shareholders who received shares following the unbundling of the majority of Old Mutual’s shareholding in
Nedbank. We set out this information below, for the benefit of certain overseas Old Mutual shareholders who are now
also Nedbank shareholders, and who may be unfamiliar with the South African requirements for the holding of shares in
Nedbank. Nedbank shares are listed on the JSE in South Africa and the NSE in Namibia.


“Note to Holders of Old Mutual Limited (“OML”) shares on the United Kingdom Register who obtained Nedbank
Group Limited (“NGL”) shares pursuant to the unbundling by OML of a majority of its NGL share.


Allocation of entitlements
Eligible OML shareholders who held OML shares on the United Kingdom Register (UK shareholders) as at the Record
date for the Unbundling, received NGL entitlements in the SA Nominee called Pacific Custodians Nominees (RF) Pty Ltd
(‘PCN’) on Monday 15 October 2018.


The entitlements to the unbundled NGL shares are held in uncertificated form by the SA Nominee. NGL shares may only
be traded in uncertificated form on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and only through South African brokers or through
a custody account with a South African Central Securities Depository Participant (‘CSDP’).


Equiniti Limited (OML’s UK registrar) in the United Kingdom will be sending confirmations of holdings in NGL to affected
UK shareholders by post to their registered address on 26 October 2018. The confirmations will contain the shareholder
reference number and the number of NGL shares that they have received in the Unbundling.


The SA Nominee is a Strate approved nominee owned by Link Investor Services Pty Ltd (‘LIS’). As LIS is a CSDP and
an accountable institution in terms of the Financial Intelligence Centre Act, 38 of 2001 (‘FICA’) it is required to conduct
Know Your Client (‘KYC’) procedures on all clients prior to the NGL shares being sold or transferred.


UK shareholders who wish to sell their NGL shares or who wish to transfer their NGL shares to their CSDP in South
Africa are required to provide their FICA documentation to LIS, thereafter they will be able to issue an instruction to sell
or transfer shares. UK Shareholders can contact LIS during office hours between 08:00am to 16:30pm (South African
time), Monday to Friday on +27 (0)86 140 0110/ +27 (0)11 029 0253 or enquiries may be sent to
UKinvestors@linkmarketservices.co.za.

Shareholders who manage their investment through a nominee or stockbroker, where the registered holder is that
nominee or stockbroker, should contact them for their entitlement notices as the underlying beneficiary and instruct them
to request a transfer of their beneficial entitlement to their CSDP which could be PCN in South Africa or to sell their
beneficial entitlements through LIS.

LIS’s standard dealing fees will apply in respect of share sales. Shareholders can obtain the fee structure by contacting
LIS.


The frequently asked questions below are provided to assist UK shareholders who acquired NGL shares pursuant to the
Unbundling of NGL by OML.

Frequently asked questions

Will UK shareholders receive share certificates for the unbundled NGL shares?
A share certificate will not be issued as the entitlements to the unbundled NGL shares are already held by PCN in
dematerialised (uncertificated) form. NGL shares may only be traded in uncertificated form on the Johannesburg Stock
Exchange.


How do UK shareholders sell their unbundled NGL shares in South Africa?
In order to sell the unbundled NGL shares held by PCN, UK shareholders can email the required FICA documentation
to UKinvestors@linkmarketservices.co.za. Once LIS receives the required FICA documentation, shareholders will be
able to sell telephonically and the proceeds will be paid into their UK bank account.

•        A copy of your identity or passport document

What happens if UK shareholders do not want to sell their unbundled NGL shares after Unbundling?
UK shareholders have the following options:
•         Leave NGL shares in PCN, no fees are applicable for holding shares in PCN;
or
•         Transfer NGL shares from PCN to any South African Broker or another CSDP in South Africa by submitting the
          required FICA documentation and a signed withdrawal form to UKinvestors@linkmarketservices.co.za. (Note:
          transferring shares from PCN to another SA broker or CSDP in SA will attract an administration fee of R 100
          Excl. Vat)

Are there any immediate plans for a UK listing of NGL to allow for trading of unbundled NGL shares by UK
shareholders after Unbundling?
Nedbank have no immediate plans to list on the London Stock Exchange post Unbundling. Ahead of the Unbundling, a
decision was taken that the unbundled NGL shares in respect of the UK Register will settle directly into the nominee
called Pacific Custodians Nominee (RF) Proprietary Limited (PCN). UK shareholders are able to sell or trade the NGL
shares held with PCN after submitting the required FICA documentation to Link Investor Services.”
