The record date for the purpose of determining which shareholders are entitled to participate in, and vote at, the annual general meeting is Friday, 10 July 2015. Accordingly, the last date to trade in order to be registered in the register of shareholders of the company and therefore be eligible to participate in and vote at the annual general meeting is Friday, 3 July 2015.

Proxies/representation at the meeting

Shareholders holding certificated shares and shareholders that have dematerialised their shares and have elected own name registration in the sub-register maintained by a Central Securities Depository Participant (CSDP), may attend, speak and vote at the annual general meeting or may appoint one or more proxies (who need not be shareholders of the company) to attend, speak and vote at the annual general meeting on behalf of the shareholder who appointed him.

A proxy form is included at the back of the Integrated Annual Report. Duly completed proxy forms must be returned to the transfer secretaries, Link Market Services South Africa Proprietary Limited (PO Box 4844, Johannesburg, 2000 or Rennie House, 13th Floor, 19 Ameshoff Street, Braamfontein, 2001) by no later than 12:00 on Monday, 13 July 2015.

Shareholders who have dematerialised their shares through a CSDP or a broker and who have not elected own name registration in the sub-register maintained by the CSDP and who wish to attend the annual general meeting, should instruct their CSDP/broker to issue them with the necessary authority to attend. Shareholders who are unable or do not intend to attend the meeting, but wish to be represented at the meeting, may provide their CSDP/broker with their voting instructions in terms of the custody agreement entered into between such shareholders and their CSDP/broker.


Pursuant to the requirements of section 62(3) of the Companies Act, notice is hereby given that in terms of section 63(1), shareholders and proxies who attend the annual general meeting will be required to provide satisfactory identification.

Electronic communication

With regard to section 61(10) of the Companies Act, any shareholder or proxy eligible to attend the annual general meeting but unable to do so, may make arrangements with the company to be connected to the meeting via a teleconference facility. Voting will not be possible via the electronic facilities and shareholders who wish to vote at the meeting must be represented at the meeting either in person, by proxy or by letter of representation, as provided for in the notice of meeting.

Should any shareholder or proxy wish to use this facility, he/she should contact the company's group corporate affairs manager, Mr L M Smith, telephone number +27 31 508 4303, or email by no later than 12:00 on Friday, 10 July 2015, so as to be advised of the relevant dial-in requirements.
