Brian Joffe The Bidvest Dinatla Trust

20 The R2,8 billion Bidvest/Dinatla Black Bconomic Empowerment deal was unique and a cleverly done arrangement, - Mike Lawrenson, Coronation Fund Managers We support the deal and our view is that although theres a cost to shareholders...we believe the benefit of the deal exceeds the cost because it positions Bidvest as an empowered company, …the potential upside is much, much greater than the cost of the deal. Alan Miller, Chief Executive, Stanlib Asset Managers Were happy that the black empowerment consortium is a well structured organisation and that there will be a substantial number of people benefiting. Bidvest could also benefit from being one of the first big industrial groups, whose interests cross a wide spectrum of the economy, to do a significant empowerment transaction at group level, Rob Forsyth, Investec On implementation of the Dinatla transaction Bidvest will be well placed in all areas outlined in the DTI Scorecard, - Brian Joffe We once again commend you on your deal and wish to state upfront that Sanlam Investment Management (SIM) is fully supportive of and committed to Black Economic Empowerment, – Johan van der Merwe, Chief Executive Officer, SIM Bidvest BEE
