(Registration number 2014/130842/06)
JSE share code: EMI     ISIN: ZAE000203063
JSE Bond Company Code: EMII
(Approved as a REIT by the JSE)
(“Emira” or “the Company”)



       Shareholders are advised that Emira has concluded a transaction to dispose of its shareholding
       in Enyuka Prop Holdings Limited (“Enyuka”), for an aggregate consideration of R638.6 million
       (the “Transaction”).

       Enyuka is a rural and lower living standards Measure (“LSM”) retail venture between Emira
       (49.9%) and Oneeighty Holdings Two Proprietary Limited (“OEH2”) (50.1%), which owns 24
       lower LSM retail centres in South Africa. The Transaction forms part of Emira’s strategy to
       recycle capital through the disposal of non-core assets. The net proceeds of the Transaction
       will be used to reduce Emira’s debt.


       Emira will dispose of the Enyuka ordinary shares held by Emira (the “Enyuka Ordinary Shares”)
       to OEH2, for an aggregate purchase consideration of R2 700 499. In addition, Enyuka will
       repurchase the Enyuka A shares held by Emira (the “Enyuka A Shares”) as well as the
       shareholder loan advanced by Emira to Enyuka (the “Emira Loan”) (collectively the “Linked
       Units”) for an aggregate consideration of R635 915 496, being the value of the Linked Units as
       reflected in the financial statements of Enyuka as at 30 June 2021, plus any accrued and unpaid
       interest on the Emira Loan.

       The total purchase consideration for the Enyuka Ordinary Shares and the Linked Units will be
       paid in cash on the closing date.

       Vendor Loan
       To enable and facilitate the Transaction, Emira will on the Closing Date advance a vendor loan
       of R100 million to OEH2 (the “Vendor Loan”) which OEH2 will advance as a shareholder loan to
       Enyuka. The Vendor Loan will bear interest at the prime rate of interest of the Standard Bank of
       South Africa (“Prime”) plus 3% for 36 months and will be repaid in full 36 months after the
       Closing Date. If the Vendor Loan is not repaid at the end of the initial 36 month period, it will
       bear interest at Prime plus 4% for 12 months and if not paid at the end of that 12 month period,
       it will bear interest at Prime plus 5% for the final 12 month period. Interest is payable monthly
       in arrears. As security for the Vendor Loan, the Enyuka Ordinary Shares acquired, together with
       all rights and title to the shareholder loan advanced by OEH2 to Enyuka, will be pledged and
       ceded to Emira by OEH2.
