STRATE Charity Shares

Shareholders with small or odd-lot holdings, or those who find the cost of selling their shares exceeds the market value of their shares, may wish to consider donating the shares to charity. An independent non-profit organisation called STRATE Charity Shares has been established to administer this process. In terms of this initiative, investors may donate their holdings, whether or not they have been converted to an electronic record of ownership in STRATE, to one or more nominated charities. The value of any shares donated may be deducted from taxable income, as the scheme is registered under section 18A of the Income Tax Act in South Africa.

For further details, queries and/or donations, contact the STRATE Share Care toll-free helpline on 0800 202 363 or +27 (0)11 373 0038, or e-mail
