The R55.1 million loss from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 arose mainly as
a result of a R72.0 million net unrealized foreign exchange loss recognised during the period. Net
foreign exchange gains/losses are primarily driven by fluctuations in the South African Rand (“ZAR”)
and US Dollar exchange rate used to translate the Resource Capital Fund Convertible Loan of US$27.0
million (approximately R455.0 million) into ZAR.
No dividends were declared or paid during the period under review or during the Comparative Period.
