('Tharisa' or the 'Company')


Tharisa, the platinum group metals ('PGMs') and chrome co-producer dual-listed on the Johannesburg and London stock exchanges, hereby advises the result of the private placement of the fixed income note offer ('the Bond' or 'Notes') by Karo Mining Holdings plc ('the Issuer'), a subsidiary of Tharisa, and confirmation of listing by way of introduction on the Victoria Falls Stock Exchange ('VFEX'). The proceeds from the Bond will be applied to part fund the Karo Platinum Project - a development stage, low-cost, open-pit PGM asset, located on the Great Dyke in the Republic of Zimbabwe ('Project').

The Issuer has received applications to subscribe for Notes as well as being advised of credit committee approval, subject to completing certain administrative processes, to subscribe for Notes, totalling US$31.8 million - exceeding the minimum requirement of US$25.0 million. As such, applications have been granted in full and the Notes will be issued to applicants in terms of the timetable where the subscription proceeds have been received, or on receipt of the subscription proceeds where the funds are still to flow. Interest on the issued Notes will accrue from the date of issue thereof. The issued Notes will be listed on the VFEX on 16 December 2022 and, where issued subsequent to this date, on the business day following issue.

As previously advised, all submissions to Zimbabwe's Insurance and Pensions Commission relating to the Bond being conferred 'prescribed asset status' have been lodged. Regulatory approval has thus far not been awarded.

The Issuer is being advised by IH Securities (Private) Limited, the Debt Sponsor for the Listing and a member of the VFEX.

A further announcement will be made on receipt of all subscription monies.
