Interim results announcement for the six months ended 31 March 2024 and Interim DIVIDEND DECLARATION

Tharisa is an integrated resource group critical to the energy transition and decarbonisation of economies. It incorporates exploration, mining, processing and the beneficiation, marketing, sales, and logistics of PGMs and chrome concentrates, using innovation and technology as enablers.
Its principal operating asset is the Tharisa Mine, located in the south-western limb of the Bushveld Complex, South Africa. The mine has a 13-year open pit life and is strategically advancing the vast mechanised underground resource which extends for over 60 years. Tharisa is developing Karo Platinum, a low-cost, open-pit PGM asset located on the Great Dyke in Zimbabwe.

 

The Company is committed to reducing its carbon emissions by 30% by 2030 and the development of a roadmap to become net carbon neutral by 2050. As part of this energy transition, the 40MW solar project adjacent to the Tharisa Mine is well advanced. Redox One, a wholly owned subsidiary, is accelerating the development of proprietary iron chromium redox flow long duration battery storage utilising the commodities we mine.

Tax implications of the dividend

Shareholders and Depositary Interest holders should note that information provided should not be regarded as tax advice.

Shareholders are advised that the dividend declared will be paid out of income reserves and may therefore be subject to dividend withholding tax depending on the tax residency of the shareholder. Funds will be paid from Cyprus.

South African tax residents

South African shareholders are advised that the dividend constitutes a foreign dividend.  For individual South African tax resident shareholders, dividend withholding tax of 20% will be applied to the gross dividend of 27.28065 South African cents per share.  Therefore, the net dividend of  21.82452 South African cents per share will be paid after 5.45613 South African cents in terms of dividend withholding tax has been applied.  Shareholders who are South African tax resident companies are exempt from dividend tax and will receive the dividend of 21.82452 South African cents per share.  This does not constitute legal or tax advice and is based on taxation law and practice in South Africa.  Shareholders should consult their brokers, financial and/or tax advisors with regard to how they will be impacted by the payment of the dividend.

UK tax residents

UK tax residents are advised that the dividend constitutes a foreign dividend and that they should consult their brokers, financial and/or tax advisors with regard to how they will be impacted by the payment of the dividend.

Cyprus tax residents

Individual Cyprus tax residents are advised that the dividend constitutes a local dividend and that they should consult their brokers, financial and/or tax advisors with regard to how they will be impacted by the payment of the dividend.
