Sustainability Linked Bonds (RWL26 & RWL28) - Availability of sustainability certificate
Noteholders are referred to Annexure A - additional terms and conditions contained in the applicable pricing
supplement relating to the RWL26 and RWL28 notes. Noteholder are further advised that the Sustainability
Certificate (as defined in the Applicable Pricing Supplements for RWL26 and RWL 28) which is accompanied
by the key performance indicator auditor's limited assurance report, is available on the Rand Water website at
The Sustainability Performance Targets for key performance indicator's (KPI's) Access to potable water and
Gender Equality were achieved. However, the Renewable Energy key performance indicator was not
satisfied. This is due to the challenges faced in respect of the conclusion of the award for the photovoltaic
tender, and Rand Water has since made necessary efforts within our supply chain management process
regarding the conclusion of this tender.
Accordingly, the step-down margin will not be applicable. The applicable margin for RWL26 will remain at
2.25%, and the interest rate for RWL28 will remain at 9.705%.
