Preference Share Code: RACP
ISIN: ZAE000145041
("RAC" or "the Company")


Shareholders are advised that the Company’s Integrated Annual Report containing the audited annual
financial results for the twelve months ended 31 March 2022 were published on SENS on 23 June 2022
(“Full Announcement”).

Financial highlights

The financial results for the year ended 31 March 2022 are set out below, compared to the twelve months
ended 31 March 2021 (“the Comparative Period”):

    -   Net asset value per share (ordinary and preference shares) decreased by 32% to R14.48 from
        R21.33 for the Comparative Period.

    -   Headline earnings and basic earnings per share (ordinary and preference shares) decreased to (6)
        cents from 100 cents for the Comparative Period.

    -   Income decreased to R1 511 847 from R1 526 347 and net profit before tax decreased to a loss of
        (R3 039 239) from a profit of R51 409 345 for the Comparative Period.

    -   No cash dividend has been declared in respect of the current or Comparative Period.

Distribution of Astoria shares

RAC distributed 90.1% of its shareholding in Astoria Investments Limited (“Astoria”) to RAC Shareholders,
by way of a distribution in specie, on a one-for-one basis in April 2021. RAC retained ownership of 9.9%
of Astoria. At the time of the distribution, Astoria’s NAV per share was R6.79 and since then has grown by
51% to R10.23 at 31 March 2022.

Despite Astoria’s share price having grown by 32% since the distribution, the share is currently more
undervalued than at the time of distribution. As an investment company, RAC’s aim is to realise the highest
per-share value for RAC shareholders. It therefore does not make sense for RAC to sell these shares at
the current market price.

RAC will distribute 5 115 000 Astoria shares to its shareholders. A further announcement setting out the
full terms of this distribution will be released on SENS separately.

The distribution will allow RAC shareholders to exercise their own discretion on the timing of realising the
value of their investment in Astoria, if so desired. The distribution is subject to the usual regulatory
approvals, but is expected to be concluded in the next two months.
