UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE ALTRON NEXUS / CITY OF TSHWANE
MUNICIPAL BROADBAND NETWORK JUDGEMENT
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 17 July 2019 regarding
the judgement handed down in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on 16 July 2019. The
judgement related to the setting aside of the award of the Altron Nexus / City of Tshwane
(“CoT”) Municipal Broadband Network contract on the basis of primarily internal processes not
having been followed by the CoT in the awarding of the tender. The contract was awarded to
a special purpose vehicle, Thobela Telecoms (RF) Proprietary Limited (“Thobela Telecoms”)
in June 2015, in which Altron Nexus is involved as the primary network designer and architect,
supplier of broadband equipment and related services, as well as being a minority shareholder
in Thobela Telecoms.
Shareholders are advised that Thobela Telecoms has been granted leave to appeal the
decision directly to the Supreme Court of Appeal. Shareholders will be updated regarding the
outcome of the appeal at an appropriate time.
