RESIGNATION OF A DIRECTOR OF THE COMPANY AND CHAIRMAN OF THE AUDIT AND RISK
In accordance with the Listings Requirements of the Botswana Stock Exchange Limited and the
Johannesburg Stock Exchange Limited, the Board of Directors of Choppies (the "Board") hereby
notifies its shareholders and the public that Mr. Robert Matthews ("Mr. Matthews"), a director of
the Company and Chairman of its Audit and Risk Committee, has tendered his resignation from both
posts, with immediate effect. Mr. Matthews' resignation has been accepted by the Chairman of the
Board and the Board.
Mr. Matthews had intended resigning from the Board on 31 March 2019, a decision he had
conveyed to the Board on 18 November 2018. However, his unavailability over the course of the
remainder of this month (February 2019) and much of next month (March 2019) for reasons
relating, in part, to out of country travel, has brought forward his resignation date.
Mr. Wilfred Mpai, a director of the Company, and a member of the Audit and Risk Committee,
immediately assumes chairmanship of that committee with immediate effect.
The Board would like to thank Mr. Matthews for his valued service and his contribution to the Board
and to the Company, and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
The Company's primary listing is on the Botswana Stock Exchange Limited and its secondary listing is
on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange Limited.
