RENEWAL OF THE CAUTIONARY ANNOUNCEMENT
Shareholders are referred to the various announcements issued by the Company during the past three
months in respect of:
1. The issue of a circular to Security Holders setting out details regarding proposed amendments to the
Memorandum of Incorporation (“MOI Amendments”). If the MOI Amendments:
a) are approved by the requisite majority of Security Holders, the terms applicable to the current
preference shares will be amended (“Amended Preference Shares”) and the Amended
Preference Shares will be transferred from Debt Instruments to Hybrid Instruments on the JSE
List and the preference shares will be reclassified from financial liabilities to equity; or
b) are not approved by the requisite majority of Security Holders, the relevant preference shares
will be converted to ordinary shares.
2. An announcement regarding a proposed specific issue of shares for cash relating to the issue of
8,808,624,705 ordinary shares to MHMK Group Limited (“MHMK Group”) at a subscription price of
ZAR0.0245 per ordinary share (“Specific Issue”), resulting in a total subscription consideration of
ZAR215 811 305. The subscription consideration will not be paid in cash but will be offset against a
claim owing to the MHMK Group, thereby reducing the Company’s liabilities owing to the MHMK Group
by ZAR215 811 305.
In addition to the above, the Board has advised that it is assessing various possibilities to restructure the
group’s balance sheet, and to obtain additional equity capital, and ensure a continued solvent position.
Having regard to the above factors, the outcomes of which are currently unknown and may have a material
impact on the Company’s share price, shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution when dealing
in the Company’s securities until a further announcement is made.
