Repurchases of Preference Shares in terms of the Programme will be made pursuant to and in accordance with the general authority granted to the Company by its shareholders at the Company's annual general meeting held on 4 August 2022. The Company has notified the Prudential Authority in writing of the repurchase of the preference shares. No preference shares will be repurchased from directors of the Company.
The Programme commences on 30 November 2022 at the opening of the market and the Company will issue a further announcement once the programme has been closed.

Repurchases will be effected within certain pre-determined price limits with specific reference to the limits of the general authority granted by the Company's shareholders and in compliance with the JSE's Listings Requirements.
Preference shares repurchased under the Programme will be cancelled as issued shares and will revert to authorised but unissued share capital status.
