Business of the meeting

Ordinary business

Item 1: Directors’ report and financial statements

To receive and consider the annual financial report, directors’ report, the report of the audit and risk committee
and the auditor’s report in relation to the Fund for the period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.

Item 2: Resolutions

To consider and, if thought fit, pass the following resolution as a special resolution of the Fund:

RESOLVED THAT the Responsible Entity is authorised by way of a general authority to repurchase or buy-
back units in the Fund (Units) from any person at any time before the anniversary of the passing of this
resolution, upon such terms and conditions and in such number as the Responsible Entity determines,
where such repurchase or buy-back is permitted under, and undertaken in compliance with, the constitution of
the Fund (“Constitution”), the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) Cth Australia (“Act”) (including as modified by
ASIC Instrument 13-0380), and other applicable requirements and the Listings Requirements of the JSE
Limited (JSE Listings Requirements). Any such repurchase or buy-back of Units will not in aggregate before
the anniversary of the passing of this resolution exceed 20% (twenty percent) of the Fund’s issued unit capital
of that class in any 1 (one) financial year.

The Responsible Entity considers it beneficial to obtain the authority to enable the Fund to take advantage of
any business opportunity that may arise in future. Unitholders should note that the current authorisation under
which the Fund is able to buy back units, will expire on 19 August 2019. If the Fund becomes ASX listed, the
Fund will continue to be authorised to buy back Units in the ordinary course of trading on the JSE in
accordance with the Act as modified by ASIC Instrument 13-0380. In addition, it will be able to conduct on-
market buybacks on ASX in accordance with the general class order (ASIC Instrument 2016/155) which
applies to ASX listed registered managed investment schemes. This resolution is a special resolution. To be
passed, it must be approved by at least 75% (seventy-five percent) of the votes cast by unitholders entitled to
vote on the resolution (including unitholders who are voting by proxy).

Recommendation

The board of the Responsible Entity has duly considered the implications of the resolution and is satisfied that
it is in the best interests of unitholders as a whole and recommends that unitholders vote in favour of the
resolution.

By order of the board of Investec Property Limited as responsible entity of the Investec Australia Property
Fund.

ASX Listing Proposal

On 5 September 2018, unitholders approved a number of resolutions to facilitate an ASX listing of the Fund
and associated capital raising within 12 months of the date of those resolutions (“ASX Listing Proposal”). In
accordance with those approvals, the Responsible Entity has decided to pursue a primary listing of the Fund
on the Australian Securities Exchange and an associated offer of approximately 76.9 million new units
(“Offer”). The Responsible Entity intends to lodge a product disclosure statement in connection with the Offer
with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission shortly after the release of this report.
