Commitments update

Ethos Capital’s Investment Strategy is to make commitments or investments into Funds or Direct Investments that are managed by Ethos Private Equity (Pty) Limited.

In support of this strategy, Ethos Capital made a first close commitment of R1.25 billion to Ethos Fund VII, the successor buyout fund for Ethos Fund VI, and a first close commitment of R150 million to the Ethos Ai Fund that will invest alongside other Ethos Funds in businesses which will benefit from the adoption and implementation of algorithmic decision making.

Pursuant to Ethos Capital’s Investment Strategy, commitments to the Ethos Funds as envisaged above are in the ordinary course of business and accordingly do not require Ethos Capital shareholder approval. However, all transactions in excess of 10% of the Company’s market capitalisation are announced in accordance with Section 15 of the JSE Listings Requirements.
