DRDGOLD shareholders approve the transaction with Sibanye-Stillwater

Sibanye-Stillwater shareholders are referred to the announcement released on 22 November 2017, and unless otherwise indicated, capitalised words and terms contained in this announcement shall bear the same meanings ascribed thereto in the Transaction Announcement.

Johannesburg, 28 March 2018: Sibanye-Stillwater (Tickers JSE: SGL and NYSE: SBGL - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URd4m-Te4Ds&t=29s) shareholders are referred to the announcement released on 22 November 2017 (“Transaction Announcement”), and unless otherwise indicated, capitalised words and terms contained in this announcement shall bear the same meanings ascribed thereto in the Transaction Announcement.

In terms of the Transaction Announcement, shareholders were advised of, inter alia, the Transaction in terms of which Sibanye-Stillwater will exchange the Selected Assets for c.265 million newly issued DRDGOLD Limited (“DRDGOLD”) shares, resulting in Sibanye-Stillwater holding 38% of the issued share capital of DRDGOLD, post the Transaction and be granted a call option to subscribe for the Option Shares during the Option Period so as to attain a 50.1% shareholding in DRDGOLD.

Sibanye-Stillwater is pleased to announce that today (Wednesday, 28 March 2018), the Transaction was approved through the passing of all the required resolutions by DRDGOLD shareholders, which included a waiver of the obligation of Sibanye-Stillwater to make a mandatory offer to the remaining shareholders of DRDGOLD in terms of the provisions of regulation 86 of the Companies Regulations, 2011 (“Waiver”). An application will be made to the Takeover regulation panel to obtain a ruling with regards to the Waiver.

The implementation of the Transaction remains subject to, and conditional on, inter alia, the requisite environmental authorisations and approvals to operate the Selected Assets having been granted to Sibanye-Stillwater. Sibanye-Stillwater shareholders will be advised in due course as to the fulfilment of all outstanding conditions precedent to the Transaction and it is anticipated that this will occur during the second quarter of 2018.

“We are thrilled to be one step closer to realising immediate value for our underutilised surface infrastructure and tailings storage facilities, while retaining upside to the West Rand Tailings Retreatment Project and future growth in DRDGOLD”, Sibanye-Stillwater CEO, Neal Froneman commented.
