Related Party Transactions

Zambeef (AIM: ZAM), the fully integrated food producer with operations in Zambia, Nigeria and Ghana, announces the following related party transactions involving Non-Executive Director, Mr. John Rabb, and the former Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Francis Grogan, over cattle purchases for the calendar year 2020.

Mr. John Rabb is one of a class of beneficiaries in Sussex Trust, an organisation that owns 100% shareholding in Wellspring Ltd ("Wellspring") and Mr. Francis Grogan is a 50% shareholder in Chisamba Ranching and Cropping Ltd ("CRC"). The two companies will be contracted to supply cattle to the Company commencing in April 2020 (and ending December 2020), as they have done in previous years.

Based on 2019 supplied quantities, Wellspring is expected to supply approximately 1,343 cattle with an approximate value of K4,600,185 (c. US$260,000) and CRC is expected to supply 1,480 cattle with an approximate value of K7,830,617 (c. US$440,000).

For the year 2019, CRC supplied 1,522 cattle and Wellspring supplied 1,056 cattle. Zambeef also buys cattle from other traditional and commercial farmers throughout the year. On average, the Company keeps about 8,000 cattle in the feedlot during the year.
