(“Tradehold” or “the Company”)
Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa
Share code: TDHBP
CUMULATIVE, REDEEMABLE “B” PREFERENCE SHARE (““B” Preference Share”) CASH DIVIDEND & VOLUNTARY PARTIAL REDEMPTION (CORRECTION)
Notice is hereby given that:
(i) the directors of Tradehold have declared a gross cash dividend (“the Cash Dividend”) of 1893.73742 cents per “B” Preference Share for the dividend period from 16 March 2020 to 15 June 2020 (both dates inclusive). The amount payable will be derived from Tradehold’s operations in the United Kingdom; and
(ii) Tradehold wishes to redeem 11,348 “B” Preference Shares at a redemption amount of ZAR1,000 being an aggregate return of capital of R11,348,000 on 15 June 2020 (“the Voluntary Redemption”). The amount payable will be derived from Tradehold’s operations in the United Kingdom.
The Cash Dividend constitutes a foreign dividend, as defined in section 1 of the Income Tax Act, 1962 (“ITA”), and is a dividend for purposes of dividends tax (“DT”) imposed under Part VIII of Chapter II of the ITA, since the “B” Preference Shares are listed on the JSE Limited and thus constitute a “listed share”, as contemplated in section 64D of the ITA.
An exemption from DT is provided for in the ITA in respect of:
(i) foreign dividends paid to a South African resident company; or
(ii) dividends paid to a non-resident to the extent that the dividend is paid by a foreign company in respect of listed shares, provided certain administrative procedures are complied with.
In terms of the ITA, DT of 20% will be withheld for those holders of “B” Preference Shares (““B” Preference Shareholders”) who are not exempt from DT. “B” Preference Shareholders who are not exempt from DT will therefore receive a net dividend of 1514.98994 cents per “B” Preference Share.
The Voluntary Redemption will be funded from internally generated cash flows of Tradehold. After the Voluntary Redemption, Tradehold will have 1,084,856 “B” Preference Shares in issue. The Voluntary Redemption will be made pro rata among the holders of “B” Preference Shareholders in proportion to their respective holdings of “B” Preference Shares.
Tradehold’s income tax reference number is 9725/126/71/9.
