The condensed consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2023 have been reviewed, in
accordance with the International Standard on Review Engagements (ISRE) 2410, by BDO South Africa Inc., who
expressed an unmodified review conclusion.


The Board has declared a final cash dividend of 65 SA cps for the year ended 30 June 2023 as follows:

•     the dividend has been declared out of income reserves;
•     the local Dividend Withholding Tax rate is 20% (twenty per cent);
•     the gross local dividend amount is 65 SA cps for shareholders exempt from Dividend Withholding Tax;
•     the net local dividend amount is 52 SA cps for shareholders liable to pay Dividend Withholding Tax;
•     DRDGOLD currently has 864,588,711 ordinary shares in issue (which includes 3,896,663 treasury shares); and
•     DRDGOLD’s tax reference number is 9160/013/60/4.

In compliance with the requirements of Strate Proprietary Limited (“Strate”) and the JSE Limited Listings
Requirements, given the Company’s primary listing on the exchange operated by the JSE Limited, the salient dates
for payment of the dividend are as follows:

•     last date to trade ordinary shares cum-dividend: Tuesday, 12 September 2023;
•     ordinary shares trade ex-dividend: Wednesday, 13 September 2023;
•     record date: Friday, 15 September 2023; and
•     payment date: Monday, 18 September 2023.

On payment date, dividends due to holders of certificated ordinary shares on the SA share register will either be
electronically transferred to such shareholders’ bank accounts or, in the absence of suitable mandates, dividends will
be held in escrow by the Company until suitable mandates are received to electronically transfer dividends to such

Dividends in respect of dematerialised shareholdings will be credited to such shareholders’ accounts with the relevant
Central Securities Depository Participant (CSDP) or broker.

To comply with the further requirements of Strate, between Wednesday, 13 September 2023 and Friday,
15 September 2023, both days inclusive, no transfers between the SA share register and any other share register
will be permitted and no ordinary shares pertaining to the SA share register may be dematerialised or rematerialised.

The currency conversion date for the Australian and United Kingdom share registers will be Monday,
18 September 2023.

The holders of American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) should confirm dividend details with the depository bank.

ADR information is tentative and subject to confirmation by the depository bank. Assuming an exchange rate of
R18.00/$1, the net dividend payable on an ADR is equivalent to 29 United States cents per share for ADR holders
liable to pay Dividend Withholding Tax. However, the actual rate of payment will depend on the exchange rate on the
date for currency conversion.
