Pan African is pleased to advise shareholders that the Group’s new ZAR 1 billion (One billion Rand) revolving
credit facility became effective on 25 November 2021 (“New RCF”). The New RCF consolidates the previous
revolving credit facility (“Previous RCF”), which expires in June 2022, and the existing Elikhulu term loan
(“Term Loan”). The New RCF is provided by Rand Merchant Bank and Nedbank, has a three-year term and
bears interest at a reduced margin of 275 basis points over the applicable JIBAR rate, compared to the 380
and 330 basis points over JIBAR, applicable to the Term Loan and Previous RCF, respectively.

The available capacity on the New RCF reduces to ZAR 850 million and ZAR 700 million on 31 December
2022 and 31 December 2023, respectively, with a final maturity date of 30 June 2024.

The New RCF’s covenant compliance is measured semi-annually for a rolling 12-month period, as follows:

    •     Debt service cover ratio must be greater than 1.3 times;
    •     Interest cover ratio must be greater than 4 times;
    •     Net debt to equity ratio must be less than 1:1; and
    •     Net debt to EBITDA ratio must be less than 2:1.

Pan African’s Chief Executive Officer, Cobus Loots, commented:

“Even though the Group expects to be materially debt-free during the next year, the New RCF provides the
Group with access to a flexible and cost effective facility over the next three years, should it be required for
growth or contingency purposes.”
