SALIENT DATES AND TIMES WITH REGARD TO AN ELECTION TO RECEIVE EITHER A CASH DIVIDEND OR A RETURN OF CAPITAL


Shareholders are referred to the condensed consolidated financial results for the year ended 31 December 2018
released on SENS and Euronext on 27 February 2019 (the "results announcement"), wherein it was stated
that the board of directors of NEPI Rockcastle had declared a distribution of 26.37 euro cents per share for the
second half of 2018. The results announcement stated further that shareholders would be afforded the
opportunity to elect to receive the distribution either in cash or as an issue of fully-paid shares (the "election")
based on a ratio between the distribution declared and the reference price, which would be calculated using a
maximum 5% discount to the five-day volume-weighted average traded price, less the distribution, of NEPI
Rockcastle shares on the JSE.

Shareholders are advised that a circular to shareholders in this regard is in the process of being finalised, but
in the interim the following information is provided.
