Shares and a cash payment for the fraction to Shareholders.
1.2. In accordance with the JSE Listings Requirements, the weighted average traded price
for a Capitec Distribution Share on the last day to trade, being Tuesday,
25 August 2020, plus one Business Day, less 10%, will be used to calculate the cash
value in respect of the respective fractions of Capitec Distribution Shares to be paid
to the applicable Shareholders.
1.3. Shareholders are advised that the weighted average traded price for a Capitec
Distribution Share on the last day to trade, being Tuesday, 25 August 2020, plus one
Business Day, was 95 064.77344 cents. Accordingly, the weighted average traded
price for a Capitec Distribution Share on the last day to trade, being Tuesday,
25 August 2020, plus one Business Day, less 10%, was 85 558.29610 cents, which
amount will be used to determine the cash payment for the fractional entitlements.
