The JSE Listing Requirements require disclosure of additional information in relation to any dividend

Shareholders registered on the South African register are advised that the dividend withholding tax will
be withheld from the gross final dividend amount of 11.25620 SA cents per share at a rate of 20%
unless a shareholder qualifies for an exemption; shareholders registered on the South African register
who do not qualify for an exemption will therefore receive a net dividend of 9.00496 SA cents per share.
The dividend withholding tax and the information contained in this paragraph is only of direct application
to shareholders registered on the South African register, who should direct any questions about the
application of the dividend withholding tax to Computershare Investor Services (Pty) Limited in South
Africa. Tel: +27 11 370 5000.

Share certificates may not be de-materialised or re-materialised between Wednesday, 9 March 2022
and Friday, 11 March 2022, both dates inclusive. Shares may not be transferred between the registers
in London and South Africa during this period either.
