Major Subsidiary’s Strategic Securities Sale: BRP Compliance Triumph

  • Sishen Iron Ore Company, a subsidiary of Kumba Iron Ore, successfully completes on-market sale of securities as part of its Bonus and Retention Share Plan (BRP).
  • 67 forfeited ordinary shares, valued at R30,296.06, were sold in accordance with BRP rules after an employee's termination prior to vesting.
  • Transaction underscores commitment to transparent financial management and adherence to regulatory guidelines, showcasing responsible corporate practices.

In a strategic move to manage its Bonus and Retention Share Plan (BRP), Sishen Iron Ore Company Proprietary Limited, a major subsidiary of Kumba Iron Ore Limited, executed a successful on-market sale of securities on 4 August 2023. The sale, compliant with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, involved the forfeiture and subsequent sale of 67 ordinary shares, with a total transaction value of R30,296.06.

The sale of securities represents a carefully considered action under the umbrella of the BRP, which has been a crucial component of the company’s compensation and retention strategy. The securities were originally awarded to an employee as part of the BRP but were forfeited upon the employee’s termination of employment prior to vesting. This triggered the execution of rule of the amended BRP, approved by shareholders during the Annual General Meeting held on 10 May 2019, allowing for the sale of the forfeited shares.

The clearance obtained for the transaction ensures that the sale was conducted in accordance with the regulations and rules governing such transactions, highlighting the commitment of Sishen Iron Ore Company to transparent and responsible financial practices.

Commenting on the successful sale, Fazila Patel, Company Secretary at Anglo American, the parent company of Kumba Iron Ore, stated, “This on-market sale of securities by Sishen Iron Ore Company underscores our dedication to prudently manage our Bonus and Retention Share Plan while adhering to regulatory requirements. It is a testament to our commitment to align our actions with shareholder interests.”
