("Adcock Ingram" or "the Company")
EXERCISE AND SETTLEMENT PROCEDURES OF THE CALL OPTIONS
Shareholders are referred to the Stock Exchange News Service announcements by AdBEE (RF) Limited
("AdBEE") and Adcock Ingram, dated 31 May 2019.
As securities holders of AdBEE were notified on that date, AdBEE will not initiate the process of extending the
scheme and accordingly the scheme will come to an end on 29 July 2019, being the "specified date" as defined
in the circular to Adcock Ingram shareholders dated 28 May 2015 (the "Scheme Circular"), a copy of which is
available on the Adcock Ingram website at http://www.adcock.com/BEE/Circulars.
All terms in the Scheme Circular shall bear the same meaning when used herein.
As the scheme will not be extended, the Adcock Ingram call options which are traded on the Johannesburg
Stock Exchange ("JSE") may be exercised with effect from Wednesday, 26 June 2019 until Friday, 26 July
2019, being a 30-day period prior to the transaction end date i.e. 29 July 2019. In order to exercise the call
options, payment of the strike price (being R72.00 multiplied by the number of call options exercised) must
accompany the exercise of the call options. Once a call option has been exercised, it will no longer be possible
to trade that call option on the JSE. The procedure for exercising and settlement of the call options is set out
below. The Adcock Ingram shares which will be listed as a result of the exercise of the call options will be
issued and listed on the JSE in accordance with the normal JSE and Strate settlement timetable, further details
of which are set out below.
Exercise and settlement procedure
If you hold your Adcock Ingram call options in certificated format, you will be required to complete a form of
exercise and surrender, which form is available from the Transfer Secretaries, Computershare Investor
Services Proprietary Limited (at the details set out below) and on http://www.adcock.com/content/pdf/call
option.pdf and submit the completed form of exercise and surrender to the Transfer Secretaries so as to be
received at any time between 09h00 on Wednesday, 26 June 2019 up to and including 12h00 on Friday, 26
July 2019, attached to which should be proof of payment of the strike price into the bank account specified in
the form of exercise and surrender. The original documents of title evidencing the call option(s) being exercised
will need to be surrendered to the Transfer Secretaries, together with the completed form of exercise and
surrender, and proof of payment.
If you hold dematerialised call options, you should contact your broker or CSDP should you wish to exercise
such options, instruct them accordingly and pay the strike price of R72.00 (multiplied by the number of Adcock
Ingram call options being exercised) to your broker or CSDP who, in turn, will liaise with the Transfer
Secretaries accordingly.
The exercise of call options will be collated and settled on a weekly basis throughout the exercise period. Any
duly completed form of exercise and surrender, together with proof of payment, received by 12h00 on Friday
in any week during the exercise period will be settled on the Tuesday of the following week, with the last date
and time for exercise being 12h00 on Friday, 26 July 2019.
