ISSUE OF ORDINARY SHARES ON THE EXERCISE OF CONVERSION RIGHTS AND
REDUCTION IN OUTSTANDING BONDS
On 24 July 2019, Implats announced that, in total, 64,204,365 ordinary shares in Implats
("Ordinary Shares") were expected to be issued by Implats as a result of the conversion of 99.9
per cent of its U.S.$250,000,000 3.25 per cent. convertible bonds due 2022 (the “Bonds”).
Implats hereby announces that the expected conversion of the Bonds has taken place and the
new 64,204,365 Ordinary Shares have been issued and admitted to trading on the Main Board of
the Johannesburg Stock Exchange's Equity Market with effect from 1 August 2019.
The issued new Ordinary Shares rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares.
Following the issue of the new Ordinary Shares, Implats' enlarged issued share capital comprises
798,982,743 Ordinary Shares. As at the date hereof, Implats holds 16,233,994 Ordinary Shares
U.S.$200,000 (representing less than 0.1 per cent. of the aggregate principal amount) of the
Bonds originally issued remains outstanding. As 15 per cent. or less of the aggregate principal
amount of the Bonds remains outstanding, Implats intends to elect to exercise its option to redeem
such Bonds in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Bonds. A separate announcement
will be made regarding such redemption.
