Johannesburg, 6 December 2021
Reference is made to the terms and conditions for the Bonds, originally dated 16 September 2013, as amended and restated, most recently by an amendment and restatement agreement dated 22 September 2020 (the "Terms and Conditions").
In addition to scheduled amortizations, the Company is obliged to apply excess cash to repay Senior Unsecured Loans. If repayments are made under Senior Unsecured Loans, corresponding pro rata payments shall be made under the Bonds. The Company will therefore make an increased early partial redemption of the Bonds pursuant to Clauses 9.6 (Mandatory redemption pro rata in case of repayment of the Senior Unsecured Loan) and 11 (Cash Sweep) of the Terms and Conditions as further set out below.
SEK Bonds (ISIN: SE 000 5392560)
The SEK Bonds will be partially redeemed on 30 December 2021 in a total amount of SEK 2,961,737.74. The record date, on which a bondholder must hold SEK Bonds in order to receive the redeemed amount, will be 22 December 2021.
The partial redemption of the SEK Bonds will be made as partial prepayments of all outstanding SEK Bonds by way of reducing the registered Nominal Amount of each SEK Bond with an amount of SEK 22,846. Due to the fact that the Nominal Amount registered with the CSD does not include capitalised interest, the repayment will appear to be made at a price of 102.07813% of the amount by which the registered Nominal Amount will be reduced as a result of the repayment. The amount is rounded down to the nearest SEK 1.00 per SEK Bond.
NOK Bonds (ISIN: NO 001 0689342)
The NOK Bonds will be partially redeemed on 31 December 2021 in a total amount of NOK 2,305,135.62. The record date, on which a bondholder must hold NOK Bonds in order to receive the redeemed amount, will be 28 December 2021.
The partial redemption of the NOK Bonds will be made by pro rata payments to the bondholders holding NOK Bonds through redeeming NOK Bonds with a total registered Nominal Amount of NOK 2,252,744. Due to the fact that that the outstanding Nominal Amount registered with the CSD does not include capitalised interest, the repayment will appear to be made at a price of 102.32568% of the amount by which the registered Nominal Amount will be reduced as a result of the redemption. The amount is rounded down to effect a pro rata repayment to the bondholders in accordance with the rules of the CSD.
Updated guidance regarding expected partial repayments under the Bonds
Clause 10 (Minimum repayment undertaking) of the Terms and Conditions prescribes that the Issuer must meet certain minimum amortization levels. In addition, pursuant to clause 9.3 (Mandatory redemption pro rata in case of repayment of the Senior Unsecured Loan) of the Terms and Conditions, the Issuer shall redeem the Bonds in an amount equal to the Bonds Pro-rata Share (as defined in the Terms and Conditions) if any repayment is made to the senior lenders under the senior unsecured loan agreement. The Issuer has agreed a new amortization profile with the senior lenders under the senior unsecured loan agreement as set out int the table below. The table has been updated to reflect effects of cash sweep payments and replaces the guidance published on 2 September 2021 Corresponding Bonds Pro-Rata Share payments will be made under the Bonds. It is expected that the amortizations that will be made with respect to the Bonds as a result of the above-mentioned provisions will meet the minimum repayment undertaking applicable for the Bonds.

Due to slightly different bases used for the purpose of the calculations and currency conversion effects, the amortizations under the Bonds will not correspond exactly with the amortizations under the senior unsecured loan, but the figures can be used as a broad indication of the amortizations that can be expected under the Bonds. The Issuer will publish information on amounts to be repaid under the Bonds and repayment dates when they have been determined in connection with the repayments.
