Notes

 

1.  Shareholders on the United Kingdom register of members with an address in the United Kingdom will be paid in pounds sterling and those with an address in a country in the European Union which has adopted the euro, will be paid in euros. Such shareholders may, however, elect to be paid their dividends in US dollars, provided the UK Registrars receive such election by Wednesday, 10 April 2019. Shareholders with an address elsewhere will be paid in US dollars except those registered on the South African branch register who will be paid in South African rand.

 

2.  Dividend Tax will be withheld from the amount of the gross dividend paid to South African shareholders at the rate of 20% unless a shareholder qualifies for exemption. In South Africa the dividend will be distributed by Anglo American South Africa Limited, or one of its South African subsidiaries, in accordance with the Company's dividend access share arrangements.

 

3.  Dematerialisation and rematerialisation of registered share certificates in South Africa will not be effected by CSDPs during the period from the JSE
ex-dividend date to the record date (both days inclusive).

 

4.  Those shareholders who already participate in the DRIP need not complete a DRIP mandate form for each dividend as such forms provide an ongoing authority to participate in the DRIP until cancelled in writing. Shareholders who wish to participate in the DRIP should obtain a mandate form from the UK Registrars, the South African Transfer Secretaries or, in the case of those who hold their shares through the STRATE system, their CSDP.

 

5.  In terms of the DRIP, and subject to the purchase of shares in the open market, share certificates/CREST notifications are expected to be mailed and CSDP investor accounts credited/updated on or about Wednesday, 29 May 2019. CREST accounts will be credited on Thursday, 9 May 2019.

 

6.  Copies of the terms and conditions of the DRIP are available from the UK Registrars or the South African Transfer Secretaries.

 

7.  The US$: £ / € conversion rates will be determined by the actual rates achieved by Anglo American buying forward contracts for those currencies, during the two days preceding the announcement of the conversion rates, for delivery on the dividend payment date.
