Datatec ordinary shareholders (“Shareholders”) are referred to the announcement released on the Stock 
Exchange News Service of the JSE Limited on Tuesday, 12 July 2016 (“the announcement”) regarding the ratio

each (“Scrip Distribution Shares”) to Shareholders recorded in the register at the close of business on the
