VOLUNTARY ANNOUNCEMENT - SABCAP GENERAL REPURCHASE OF SHARES
Shareholders are referred to the voluntary announcement released on 26 May 2021 summarising the
Sabcap general repurchase of shares made in accordance with the general authority granted by
shareholders at the Company’s general meeting held on 25 June 2020. Under that general authority,
through to its expiration at the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) on 24 May 2021, Sabcap, through
its wholly owned subsidiary Sabvest Finance and Guarantee Corporation (Pty) Limited (“SFGC”),
repurchased 1 128 352 Sabcap ordinary shares, of which 508 352 Sabcap ordinary shares were
cancelled in December 2020, with the remaining 620 000 Sabcap ordinary shares held in treasury.
Sabcap, through SFGC, repurchased a further 830 000 Sabcap ordinary shares under the new general
authority granted by shareholders on 24 May 2021. This represents 2,0% of the Sabcap ordinary
shares in issue before the repurchase was affected.
A total of 1 450 000 Sabcap ordinary shares were repurchased to date under both general authorities.
Shareholders are advised that the Company acquired 1 450 000 Sabcap ordinary shares from SFGC on
18 November 2021 for a total consideration of R79,8 million. Following the repurchase transaction,
the Company applied to the JSE Limited for the delisting of the 1 450 000 Sabcap ordinary shares.
The repurchased shares were cancelled on 24 November 2021 and reverted to authorised but
unissued shares of the Company in accordance with section 35(5) of the Companies Act.
The largest number of shares in issue by Sabvest Limited (‘’Sabvest’’) was 52 327 962. Following this
cancellation, there are now 39 550 000 Sabcap ordinary shares in issue, a reduction of 24,4% due to
repurchases and cancellations by Sabvest and Sabcap over the years.
