REFINANCING OF SHORT-TERM BRIDGE FACILITIES

AECI has successfully refinanced the short-term bridge facilities which were utilised to fund the
acquisition of Schirm GmbH (and related assets) and Much Asphalt Proprietary Limited. The refinance
was effected through a competitive syndication process where the Standard Bank of South Africa
Limited acted as arranger and bookrunner.

The bridge facilities were termed out into ZAR700 million, US$61 million and EUR68 million facilities
across three-, four- and five-year term bullet facilities. As part of the syndication process, AECI also
raised ZAR800 million in four- and five-year listed bonds. The five-year bond priced tighter than the
similar inaugural five-year bond issued in September 2018.

The syndication was well supported by both local and international financial institutions and was four
times oversubscribed.

The facilities were priced competitively, which will result in a reduced cost of funding for the Company
and an improved debt maturity profile.
