(the “Fund”)


    Unitholders are referred to the announcement released this morning, 3 May 2019, referencing the approvals
    given by unitholders on 5 September 2018 in relation to a number of resolutions to facilitate a listing of the
    Fund on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and associated capital raising (ASX Listing Proposal).

    In accordance with those approvals, the Responsible Entity has decided to pursue an additional primary listing
    of the Fund on the ASX together with an associated offer involving the issue by the Responsible Entity of
    76 923 077 new units (Subscription Units) in the Fund (Offer). The Responsible Entity has lodged a product
    disclosure statement (PDS), dated 3 May 2019, in connection with the Offer with the Australian Securities and
    Investment Commission. The PDS is available electronically at Unitholders should consider
    the PDS in deciding whether to acquire or continue to hold units in the Fund.

    The Offer will consist of:

        •    A broker firm offer that is open to retail investors in Australia and New Zealand who have received a
             firm allocation through their broker (Broker Firm Offer); and
        •    An institutional offer which is an invitation to certain institutional investors in Australia, New Zealand,
             South Africa, Hong Kong and Singapore to bid for Subscription Units (Institutional Offer).

    The final subscription price will be determined under an institutional bookbuild conducted by the joint lead
    managers (being J.P. Morgan Securities Australia Limited and Macquarie Capital (Australia) Limited), subject
    to a minimum subscription price of AUD 1.30.1 The final subscription price is expected to be within the
    indicative price range of AUD 1.30 to AUD 1.35, and is expected to raise approximately AUD 100 million (at the
    lower end of this range). The proceeds from the Offer will be used to repay debt and pay the costs associated
    with the Offer.

    Currently, the Fund has a primary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and a secondary listing
    on the Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX). Following the implementation of the ASX Listing Proposal, the Fund
    will delist from the BSX and will be dual primary listed on the JSE and ASX.

    The important dates and times in relation to the Offer and the ASX Listing Proposal are set out below:
