Approval of annual fees to be paid to non-executive directors – special resolution number 2
To approve for the period 1 November 2013 until the date of the next annual general meeting of the company, the
remuneration payable to non-executive directors of the company for their services as directors as follows:
Annual board fee for each non-executive director: R86 000
Annual subcommittee fee for each non-executive director: R34 000*
Where a non-executive director is a member of more than one subcommittee of the company, the annual subcommittee
fee is limited to R34 000.”
Reason for and effect of special resolution number 2
This resolution is proposed in order to comply with the requirements of the Companies Act. In terms of section 65(11)(h)
of the Companies Act read with sections 66(8) and 66(9) of the Act, remuneration may only be paid to directors for their
services as directors in accordance with a special resolution approved by the holders within the previous 2 (two) years and,
only if this is not prohibited in terms of the company’s MOI.
The payment of remuneration to directors for their services as directors is not prohibited by the company’s MOI. This special
resolution applies only to non-executive directors, as executive directors are required to attend meetings as part of their
terms of employment and do not receive remuneration for their services as directors in addition to salaries they receive by
virtue of their employment by the company.
The proposed directors’ remuneration payable to non-executive directors is based on best practice and aimed at ensuring
fair and competitive remuneration practices. It is important for the company to attract new directors and retain directors
with the relevant capabilities, skills and experience required to effectively conduct the business of the board and lead the
company according to its strategic priorities.
