     Notes:
     1.   Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the 'for' total.
     2.   A 'vote withheld' is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes for or against
          a resolution.
     3.   Total voting rights of shares in issue: 850,820,151. Every shareholder has one vote for every ordinary share held.

     As announced on 27 February 2019, Graeme Gordon stepped down from the Board at the conclusion of the
     Annual General Meeting.

     The Board notes that although resolution 15 was passed with the requisite majority, 35.41% of votes received
     were against the resolution. This voting outcome reflects differing market practice between the UK and South
     Africa, where shareholders usually approve more restricted levels of authority to issue shares, and prefer to vote
     on proposed allotments of shares on a case by case basis. In addition, resolution 16 was withdrawn as there
     was narrowly insufficient support for the resolution based on proxy votes received before the time of the
     meeting.

     The Company has consulted regularly with its larger international shareholders on this matter, however many
     institutions operate under policies that do not permit this level of authority to be supported, although a number
     of our shareholders do understand the Company’s position. As a UK premium listed company, the Board
     considers it appropriate to seek authorities in line with the Investment Association's Share Capital Management
     Guidelines, to allow the Company to respond to market developments and to enable allotments to take place
     to finance business opportunities as they arise. The Board will continue to engage with our international
     shareholders on this topic, however as the voting outcome reflects the difficulty in balancing the expectations
     of different markets, it is likely that there will continue to be significant votes against these resolutions.

     In accordance with paragraph 9.6.2 of the Listing Rules, copies of the resolutions passed at the meeting, other
     than resolutions concerning ordinary business, have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and
     will shortly be available for inspection at: http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
