ELECTION TO RECEIVE EITHER A CASH DIVIDEND OR A RETURN OF CAPITAL: FINALISATION ANNOUNCEMENT

 

 

NEPI shareholders are referred to the circular to NEPI shareholders and notice to NEPI shareholders in respect of an election to receive either a cash dividend or a return of capital announced on 31 August 2016, and are advised as follows:

 

-           Shareholders on the South African register will receive their cash dividend in South African Rand converted from Euro at an exchange rate of EUR1.00 : ZAR16.0952.  Accordingly, the cash dividend of 18.68 Euro cents per share will be equal to 3.0066 ZAR per share.

-           The reference price is ZAR150.98946 ("reference price"), being a 5% discount to the five-day volume weighted average traded price (less distribution) of NEPI shares on the JSE as at Monday, 12 September 2016. For NEPI shares on the UK and Romanian registers, the reference price is EUR9.38102 (being the reference price of ZAR150.98946 converted to Euro at the Rand exchange rate of EUR1.00 : ZAR16.0952).

-           Shareholders electing to receive the return of capital will receive 1.99 new NEPI shares for every 100 NEPI shares held by such shareholders on the record date of Friday, 23 September 2016, representing the ratio that the cash dividend bears to the reference price.

 

If no shareholders were to elect to receive the return of capital, the value of the dividends would amount to EUR €59 559 907. Should all shareholders elect to receive the return of capital, the maximum total number of new NEPI shares to be issued by NEPI pursuant to the return of capital will be 6 344 979.

 

The share capital of the company as at the date of this announcement is as follows:

The allocation of new NEPI shares will be such that shareholders who elect to receive the return of capital will not be allocated a fraction of a new NEPI share and as such any entitlement to receive a fraction of a new NEPI share which:

 

-           is less than one-half of a new NEPI share, will be rounded down to the nearest who number; and

-           is equal to or greater than one-half of a new NEPI share but less than a whole new NEPI share, will be rounded up to the nearest whole number.

 

Dividend tax (and therefore the information provided in this paragraph) is only of direct application to shareholders on the South African share register. The gross local dividend amount is 3.0066 ZAR per share for shareholders exempt from paying South African dividends tax. The net local divided amount is 2.5556 ZAR per share for shareholders liable to pay the dividends tax rate of 15%. There is no withholding tax payable in the Isle of Man.
