A circular containing full details of the Rights Offer and incorporating a form of instruction in
respect of a letter of allocation reflecting the Entitlement of Renergen shareholders to the Rights
Shares (“Letter of Allocation”), will be posted to shareholders in due course (“Circular”).

The Letters of Allocation are negotiable and will be listed on the JSE under the share code RENN
and ISIN ZAE000264503. The Rights Shares cannot be traded before such shares are listed on
the JSE.

Shareholders are referred to the Circular for the procedures for acceptance, sale or renunciation
of their Entitlement to the Rights Shares.

Renergen and the transfer secretaries accept no responsibility and will not be held liable for any
allocation of Entitlements pursuant to payment being made or alleged to have been made and
where proof of such payment has not been received or purported proof of such payment being
insufficient or defective for Renergen together with the Transfer Secretaries, for any reason, not
being able to reconcile a payment or purported payment with a particular application for Rights
Offer Shares.


All transactions arising from the provisions of this Circular and the Form of Instruction shall be
governed by and be subject to the laws of South Africa. The Rights Offer may be affected by the
laws of the relevant jurisdictions of foreign Shareholders. Such foreign Shareholders should
inform themselves about and observe any applicable legal requirements of such jurisdictions in
relation to all aspects of this Circular that may affect them, including the Rights Offer. It is the
responsibility of any foreign Shareholder to satisfy himself/herself as to the full observation of
the laws and regulatory requirements of the relevant jurisdiction in connection with the Rights
Offer, including the obtaining of any governmental, exchange control or other consent or the
making of any filings which may be required, the compliance with other necessary formalities,
the payment of any issue, transfer or other taxes or requisite payments due in such jurisdiction.
The Rights Offer is further subject to any other applicable laws and regulations, including the
Exchange Control Regulations. Any foreign Shareholder who is in doubt as to his/her position,
including, without limitation, his/her tax status, should consult an appropriate independent
professional adviser in the relevant jurisdiction without delay.


The whole number of Rights to subscribe for Rights Offer Shares to which Qualifying
Shareholders will become entitled will be determined by the Ratio of Entitlement. Only whole
numbers of Ordinary Shares will be issued and Shareholders will be entitled to subscribe for
rounded numbers of Ordinary Shares once the Ratio of Entitlement has been applied. Fractional
entitlements of 0.5 or greater will be rounded up and less than 0.5 will be rounded down.
