South African Section 155 proceedings

IMPORTANT NOTE regarding the voting process and the appointment of proxies under the Section 155 Proposal:

·       In the SIHPL Filing Instruction, claimants may elect whether they wish to attend and vote at the meeting personally or whether they wish to appoint a proxy to do so on their behalf. If claimants elect to appoint a proxy, they must instruct the proxy to either vote in favour or against the Section 155 Proposal or to abstain from voting.

·       The voting proxy may be revoked at any time prior to the Scheme Meeting, in which event the claimant in question may either –

o   submit a fresh proxy (provided it is submitted 96 hours prior to the Scheme Meeting) and in this respect claimants are asked to contact the Claims Administrator for further information; or

o   register for and attend the Scheme Meeting personally.

·       Submitting a proxy does not preclude the claimant in question from subsequently deciding to attend the Scheme Meeting and vote on the Section 155 Proposal personally. In this event, the claimant in question must advise the Claims Administrator at least 96 hours prior to the Scheme Meeting that the relevant proxy should be disregarded and that the claimant wishes to register to attend the Scheme Meeting personally.
