The directors of eMedia Holdings have resolved to declare an interim cash dividend for the period ended 30 September 2019
of 10 cents per share (2018: Nil). The dividend to shareholders relates to the ordinary shares (share code: EMH) and N ordinary
shares (share code: EMN). The dividend has been declared out of income reserves. The dividend will be subject to a local dividend
withholding tax at a rate of 20%, which will result in a net interim dividend to those shareholders not exempt from paying dividend
withholding tax of 8 cents per ordinary share and 10 cents per ordinary share for those shareholders who are exempt from
dividend withholding tax. In terms of dividend withholding tax legislation, any dividend withholding tax amount due will be withheld
and paid over to the South African Revenue Service by a nominee company, stockbroker or Central Securities Depository Participant
(collectively regulated intermediary) on behalf of shareholders. All shareholders should declare their status to their regulated
intermediary as they may qualify for a reduced dividend withholding tax rate or exemption. The salient dates for the payment of the
dividend are as follows:

Last day to trade cum dividend Tuesday, 10 December 2019
Commence trading ex dividend Wednesday, 11 December 2019
Record date Friday, 13 December 2019
Payment date Tuesday, 17 December 2019
Share certificates may not be dematerialised nor rematerialised between Wednesday, 11 December 2019 and
Friday, 13 December 2019, both dates inclusive.

eMedia Holdings' tax reference number is 9650/144/71/1.
