Shareholders are hereby informed that, in terms of the aforementioned agreements, Tiger Brands repurchased 1 389 685 and 861 257 Tiger Brands shares from the BMT II and BrimTiger respectively with effect from 1 January 2018.
The shares were repurchased at a price of R0,10 per share in the case of the BMT II and R7,40 per share in the case of BrimTiger. The repurchased shares represent 1,172% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company.
