there are zero call charges to the shareholder, however, if you are not in a Wi-Fi area, you will use your data. In-
person registration of meeting participants will not be carried out at the registered office of the Company.
Shareholders will be liable for their own network charges in relation to electronic participation in and/or voting at
the annual general meeting. Any such charges will not be for the account of Massmart or the Transfer Secretaries.

Neither Massmart, nor its Transfer Secretaries (Computershare) can be held accountable in the case of loss of
network connectivity or other network failure due to insufficient airtime, internet connectivity, internet bandwidth
and/or power outages which prevents any such Shareholder from participating in and/or voting at the annual
general meeting.

Certificated shareholders and dematerialised shareholders with ‘own name’ registration, who wish to vote at the
annual general meeting, must pre-register by providing the Company’s Transfer Secretaries with their details as
well as an email address not later than Tuesday, 19 May 2020, upon which they will be given further instructions
on how to vote.

Certificated shareholders and dematerialised shareholders with “own name” registration making use of the
electronic participation facility are however encouraged to submit their duly completed forms of proxy to the
Company’s Transfer Secretaries by email to: proxy@computershare.co.za as soon as possible, but no later than
Tuesday, 19 May 2020 for administrative purposes, although any late submissions will still be accepted up until
commencement of the annual general meeting.

Dematerialised shareholders, other than those with “own name” registration, making use of the electronic
participation facility are encouraged to provide instructions to their duly appointed CSDP or broker, as soon as
possible, but no later than Tuesday, 19 May 2020 for administrative purposes. Those dematerialised
shareholders, other than those with ‘own name’ registration, who wish to vote at the annual general meeting,
must obtain letters of representation from their CSDP or broker and provide copies together with an email address
to the Company’s Transfer Secretaries (proxy@computershare.co.za), upon which they will be given further
