2020 Annual General Meeting Voting Results - Update Statement

19 October 2020


At the Company's Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on 28 April 2020, 20 per cent or more of votes were cast against resolution 9. In the announcement released immediately following the AGM, the Board outlined the actions that it intended to take to understand and address shareholder concerns and an update is provided below.


Although Resolution 9, to re-elect Pierre Bouchut, was passed with the necessary majority, 24.3% of votes received were against. The negative vote is understood to be the mechanistic result of an over-boarding analysis. The Board is fully satisfied with Mr Bouchut's contribution and time commitment to the Company both as Chair of the Audit Committee and as a Non-Executive Director. However, the Company has discussed the matter with relevant shareholder.


The Company will continue to engage with the shareholder and will provide a final update in the 2020 Annual Report and Accounts.

The announcement above has also been released on the SENS system of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
