EXTENSION OF CONDITION PRECEDENT TO THE SCHEME AND STATUS UPDATE
Shareholders are referred to the various joint announcements by the Company and Afrimat, regarding
an offer by Afrimat to acquire all the ordinary shares in UCP not already held by Afrimat (or by its
subsidiaries) or by subsidiaries of UCP, by way of a scheme of arrangement (“the Scheme”) in terms
of section 114 of the Companies Act, No. 71 of 2008. A circular (“Circular”) detailing the Scheme was
distributed to UCP shareholders on 9 September 2020 and incorporated a notice convening a general
meeting of shareholders (“General Meeting”) for the purpose of considering, and, if deemed fit,
passing, with or without modification, the resolutions contained therein.
As previously announced on SENS on 9 October 2020, at the General Meeting, all of the resolutions
were passed by the requisite majorities of the Company’s shareholders.
EXTENSION OF CONDITION PRECEDENT
As indicated in paragraph 18.104.22.168, read with paragraph 4.2.2 of the Circular, it is a condition to the
Scheme that, by no later than 31 October 2020, the Mpumalanga Economic Growth Agency, as minority
shareholder in Nkomati Anthracite Proprietary Limited, agrees to the terms of the strategic and mining
management agreement to be concluded with Afrimat, as previously approved by the UCP board of
directors on 20 March 2020, to the reasonable satisfaction of Afrimat (“Relevant Condition”).
Shareholders are advised that Afrimat has, by written notice in terms of paragraph 4.2.3 of the Circular,
extended the deadline for fulfilment of the Relevant Condition to 14 December 2020.
STATUS OF THE SCHEME
In addition to the Relevant Condition, the Scheme remains subject to the fulfilment, or waiver, as the
case may be, by 31 January 2020 of the remaining conditions precedent, being those detailed in
paragraphs 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199.1 of the Circular.
UCP shareholders will be kept apprised of further developments in this regard and will be advised when
all remaining conditions precedent to the Scheme have been fulfilled (or, where applicable, waived).
Should the Scheme become unconditional, the updated timetable for implementation of the Scheme
will be published in the finalisation announcement to UCP shareholders.
