In compliance with the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, shareholders are advised that, owing to the nature of the business conducted by Ethos Capital, the Board of the Company has decided to adopt net asset value per share (“NAVPS”) as the relevant measure for trading statement and short-form announcement purposes.

As an investment entity, Ethos Capital’s business and its strategy is to enhance the net asset value per ordinary share and to offer shareholders superior long-term capital appreciation by investing in unlisted private equity type investments. Therefore, the sustainability of the NAVPS and growth thereon over a longer period of time is considered a more appropriate measurement of financial performance, in comparison to headline earnings per share and earnings per share.
