1.    South African dividend tax of 27.26922 South African cents per ordinary share will be withheld from
      the amount of the gross final dividend of 136.3461 South African cents per ordinary share paid to
      shareholders on the South African branch register at the rate of 20% unless a shareholder qualifies
      for an exemption.
2.    After the South African dividend tax has been withheld, the net dividend will be 109.07688 South
      African cents per ordinary share.
3.    Australia is the country of source of income, the dividend is regarded as 'foreign' for the purposes of
      South African dividends tax.
