ROYAL BAFOKENG HOLDINGS INVESTMENT IN TRANSACTION CAPITAL THROUGH A SPECIFIC ISSUE OF SHARES
Transaction Capital is pleased to announce Royal Bafokeng Holdings Proprietary Limited’s ("RBH")
intention to invest, through its wholly owned subsidiary company Royal Bafokeng Resources Holdings
Proprietary Limited, an initial R500 million in the Company as a long-term strategic shareholder. To this
end, 12 million ordinary shares (representing 1.8% of existing ordinary shares in issue) were acquired
via a secondary purchase in an off-market transaction on 19 November 2020. Furthermore, Transaction
Capital and RBH will enter into a Subscription Agreement in terms of which RBH is expected to increase
its holding in the Company, in terms of a specific issue for cash (the "Specific Issue"), by subscribing for
a further 12.4 million ordinary shares at R20 per share (representing a 7,4% discount to the 30-day
VWAP of Transaction Capital up to and including 23 November 2020) in January 2021, subject to
shareholder approval. A circular to shareholders and notice of general meeting will be distributed in
RATIONALE FOR THE TRANSACTION
RBH is a highly regarded and respected South African investment firm and thus the board of the
Company is fully supportive of the Specific Issue which will be the start of a long-term strategic
relationship between RBH and Transaction Capital.
RBH strives to continually improve the economic wellbeing and quality of life of the Royal Bafokeng
Nation community by investing in businesses that will generate exceptional returns over the long term,
thus enabling it to contribute directly to the upliftment of the Royal Bafokeng Nation community, both
today and into the future.
INTENDED USE OF THE FUNDS
Transaction Capital continues to leverage its high-IP, technologies and low-cost operational
infrastructure to grow in adjacent market segments, related alternative asset classes and new
geographies. As market dynamics in the aftermath of COVID-19 become clearer, certain strategic
growth initiatives in the TCRS Group and TC Global Finance provide unprecedented opportunities to
accelerate capital deployment for attractive risk-adjusted returns.
The Group’s financial position is robust, with ample access to liquidity. However, given the protracted
impact of COVID-19, Transaction Capital believes it is prudent at this time to enhance the Group’s
financial flexibility and strategic agility. The capital raised pursuant to the Specific Issue will support
these strategic initiatives.
