("Brait" or “the Company”)


Shareholders are referred to the results of the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) announcement released on SENS on 31
July 2019 (the “Initial Announcement”). The Company has today been made aware of inadvertent errors in the process
of the Company’s transfer secretaries Computershare compiling the voting results based on the voting instructions
they received from Strate, the authorised Central Securities Depository (“CSD”) for the electronic settlement of all
financial instruments in South Africa. In accordance with standard practice, the Company relied on the voting
results submitted to it by Computershare at the time of the AGM, which were contained in the Initial Announcement.

In light of the above, details of the revised voting results received by the Company from Computershare for the AGM
held on 31 July 2019 are set out below. The revisions do not impact the passing of ordinary resolutions 1 – 3 and
5(a), together with extraordinary resolution 4, which were approved by the requisite majority of votes.

Further, the revised results had no change to the non-passing of extraordinary resolution 5(b) relating to the
renewal of the Board’s authority to withdraw statutory pre-emption rights, achieving a revised 69.8% vote in favour
relative to the required 75%.

The Company confirms the voting statistics based on the revised total number of shares represented and voted at the
AGM of 416,161,813 as follows (note 1):
                                                                              Shares voted for   Shares voted against

Note 1:
Brait’s total issued share capital is 525,599,215 ordinary shares. The total number of shares legally eligible to
vote at the AGM, which excludes the 17,475,070 treasury shares held, is therefore 508,124,145 ordinary shares. This
represents the legal base for determining the minimum 51% threshold (259,143,314 ordinary shares) required in order
for extraordinary resolutions 4 and 5(b) to be voted on.

Note 2:
Brait Mauritius Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary in the Brait Group, voluntarily elected not to vote the
36,616,189 shares held by it. Therefore, the maximum number of shares that could be represented and eligible to vote
at the AGM is 471,507,956.
