("Altron" or the "Company")
The definitions and interpretations commencing on page 6 of the Circular to shareholders dated
Thursday, 9 February have been used in this SENS announcement.
Shareholders are referred to the finalisation announcement released on SENS on Friday, 17 March
2017 confirming that all conditions precedent to the Restructure had been fulfilled and the
implementation of the Restructure had commenced.
Where an N Shareholder´s entitlement to A Shares issued in terms of the Repurchase Scheme
Consideration, calculated on the basis of nine A Shares for every 10 N Shares held on the Repurchase
Scheme Record Date, being Friday, 31 March 2017, results in a fractional Share entitlement, such
fraction of an A Share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, resulting in allocations of
whole A Shares and a cash payment will be made to the N Shareholder for the fraction.
In accordance with the Listing Requirements, the cash payment has been determined with reference to
the weighted average traded price of the A Share traded on the JSE on Wednesday, 29 March 2017
(being the day after the last day to trade in the N shares), discounted by 10%.
Shareholders are accordingly advised that the basis applicable in determining the cash payment for
fractional entitlements is 974.38791 cents (1,082.65323 cents discounted by 10%).
Example of fractional entitlement:
This example assumes that an N Shareholder holds 125 N Shares at the close of business on the
Repurchase Scheme Record Date.
A Share entitlement = 125 x 90% (being the Repurchase Scheme Consideration ratio of the issue of
nine A Shares for every 10 N Shares held on the Repurchase Scheme Record Date)
= 112.5 A Shares. The rounding provision described above is then applied and the Shareholder will
112 A Shares in respect of the 125 N Shares held and a cash payment for the fractional entitlement
based on the 97974.38791 cents noted above of 974.38791 x 0.5 = 487.19395 cents.
The cash received by N Shareholders for the fractional entitlement is part of the Repurchase Scheme
Consideration The cash for the fractional entitlement does not constitute a dividend as defined in section
1 of Income Tax Act, consequently no dividend tax arises on the cash so received. However, this does
not preclude the possibility of capital gains tax and income tax arising on the cash received and the tax
implications will depend on the individual tax circumstances of each N Shareholder. N Shareholders
should seek advice from appropriate professional advisers if they are in any doubt whatsoever about
their tax position.
