Lifting of suspension

Brikor was placed into provisional liquidation on 30 July 2013 and the trading of shares of the company
on the JSE Limited (“JSE”) was suspended 31 July 2013. Brikor came out of provisional liquidation on
2 October 2015.

Shareholders are advised that the JSE has approved the lifting of Brikor’s suspension with effect from
23 July 2020.

In order to provide shareholders will the current status of the business, the following information is
disclosed below.

1)        Nature and history of the business

Brikor is a manufacturer and supplier of bricks across a broad spectrum of the market from low-cost
housing, residential to commercial, industrial, civil engineering and infrastructure projects as well as
coal to local markets and coal traders. The Group operates through two divisions, namely bricks (which
is owned directly by Brikor Limited) and coal (through its wholly owned subsidiary, Ilangabi Investments
12 (Pty) Ltd (“Ilangabi”)). Brikor manufactures Semi Face Bricks and Clay Stock Bricks at its Nigel
Operations and operates two factories. Ilangabi provides brick-making clay and low grade coal to
Brikor’s operations and sells coal to coal traders. It owns Vlakfontein and Grootfontein coal mining

Since coming out of provisional liquidation Brikor acquired the remaining 69% of Ilangabi with effect
from 13 July 2016, making it a wholly owned subsidiary of Brikor. On 17 April 2018, shareholders
approved the disposal of the Donkerhoek business, a non-core asset identified by management. On 17
April 2017, the company disposed of the Rayton property subject to conditions precedent. The section
11(1) transfer at the Department of Mineral Resources is still in progress and a renewed revival
agreement was signed to extend the original agreement to 30 November 2020 to allow for additional
time to obtain the section 11(1) transfer. On 10 July 2019 Brikor disposed of the Schist property.

Shareholders are referred to the SENS announcement dated 27 February 2020 regarding the request
by a shareholder in Brikor, for a shareholders meeting in terms of the Companies Act, No 71 of 2008
and Brikor’s Memorandum of Incorporation. Brikor has applied to court for an order setting aside this
request on the grounds that the request is frivolous and/or otherwise vexatious. Shareholders will be
kept up to date in this regard.
