     1 The chairman of the Scheme Meeting noted a clarification in respect of Special Resolution Number 1 in that the
       reference to the Scheme Consideration in Special Resolution Number 1 (and the Circular) should be construed as a
       reference to the Increased Scheme Consideration (as defined in the Revised Offer Announcement).

     Shareholders are further advised that the Scheme remains subject to inter alia the fulfilment of one
     outstanding Scheme Condition, namely the issue by the Takeover Regulation Panel of a compliance
     certificate contemplated in section 121(b)(i) of the Companies Act. Master Plastics did not receive any
     notices from its Shareholders in terms of section 164 of the Companies Act, objecting to the Scheme.
     Master Plastics has received the consent of Nedbank Limited to the Scheme under the Company's debt
     funding arrangements as well as approval from the Competition Authorities in terms of the Competition Act.
     Once the last remaining Scheme Condition has been fulfilled, a further announcement regarding the
     relevant dates for the implementation of the Scheme will be made.
