New Group Operations Director role and new CFO appointment

Datatec Limited ("Datatec" or “the Group”, JSE/AIM: DTC), the international Information and
Communications Technology (ICT) group, announces that Rob Evans, the Group’s Chief Financial Officer, will
become Group Operations Director with effect from 1 June 2014. He will be succeeded by Jurgens Myburgh,
who will be joining the Group as Chief Financial Officer designate on 1 May 2014.

The addition of this new Board role reflects the growing scale and complexity of the Group’s operations.
Rob’s responsibilities will include business process improvement, internal audit, post-acquisition integration
oversight and internal corporate development.

Petrus Jurgens Myburgh (38) is a chartered accountant and will join Datatec from The Standard Bank of
South Africa Limited (“Standard Bank”). Jurgens joined Standard Bank in 2001 and was appointed Executive
Vice President of Mergers & Acquisitions in 2007 and Head: Mergers & Acquisitions in 2009. He has
extensive experience in finance, management, listed company corporate actions and mergers & acquisitions.

Jurgens holds a B.Comm (Hons) degree in Accounting from the University of Johannesburg and qualified as
a chartered accountant with KPMG (Johannesburg) in 2000.

Save as set out above, there are no details in relation to the appointment which need to be disclosed under
paragraph (g) of Schedule 2 of the AIM Rules.

Jens Montanana, Datatec's Chief Executive commented:

“The size and complexity of the Group now merits the position of a Group Operations Director.
Rob Evans is ideally suited for this new position with his broad international experience,
including over 10 years in various operating and finance roles across Datatec.

“I am delighted to welcome Jurgens as our new Chief Financial Officer. He has a strong
corporate finance background and extensive international mergers & acquisitions experience.”
