Shareholders are referred to the SENS announcement on 29 March 2019, advising shareholders of, inter alia, a consultation process in relation to the recognition of value distributed to B-BBEE shareholders through the unbundling of an asset in Old Mutual’s B-BBEE scorecard. This consultation process involved the Association for Savings and Investments South Africa ("ASISA") and the Financial Services Transformation Council ("FSTC"). Shareholders were advised that the outcome of this process would impact the recognition of the value of assets distributed by Old Mutual to its B-BBEE shareholders during 2018 as part of the Managed Separation and that Old Mutual would re-issue its B-BBEE certificate following completion of the consultation process.
Old Mutual is pleased to announce that the FSTC has now confirmed the recognition principles in respect of the value distributed by Old Mutual to its B-BBEE shareholders as part of Managed Separation. In accordance with these recognition principles, Old Mutual’s deemed Black South African ownership percentage was 22.8% as at 31 December 2018. A revised B-BBEE certificate was issued on 30 April 2019 and is available on the Company's website at: www.oldmutual.co.za/about-us/transformation/black-empowerment/bee-certificates.
