Additional information for South African resident shareholders of Karooooo Ltd.:
Shareholders registered on the South African section of the register are advised that the distribution of USD 0.60 per ordinary shares will be converted to Rands using the USD/ZAR spot rate from Oanda Currency Converter (www.oanda.com), as determined on Friday, 19 August 2022 at 14h56 Singaporean time, of 16.75500. This will equate to a gross dividend of ZAR 10.053 per share.
Karooooo Ltd. tax reference number is 201817157Z.
The issued ordinary share capital of Karooooo Ltd. is 30,951,106 ordinary shares.
The dividend will be distributed by the Company from distributable profit reserves and is regarded as a “foreign dividend” (as defined in the South African Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962) for South African resident shareholders holding shares on the South African register.
Singapore does not impose withholding tax on dividends.
Dividends declared and paid by the Company to South African resident shareholders holding shares on the South African register are subject to South African dividend tax (“SA DWT”) of 20% (subject to any applicable exemptions that may apply). The net dividend to South African resident shareholders who are not exempt from SA Tax, equates to ZAR 8.0424 per share.
Dividends will be paid net of SA DWT, to be withheld and paid to the South African Revenue Service. Such tax must be withheld unless beneficial owners of the dividend have provided the necessary documented proof to the regulated intermediary (being a broker, CSD participant, nominee company or the Company’s transfer secretaries, Computershare Investor Services (Pty) Ltd., Private Bag x9000, Saxonwold, 2132, South Africa) that they are exempt therefrom, or entitled to a reduced rate, as a result of any relevant double taxation agreement between South Africa and the country of tax domicile of such owner.
Shareholders are encouraged to consult their professional tax advisers should they be in any doubt as to the appropriate action to take.
