CHANGES TO THE ABSA GROUP AND ABSA BANK BOARDS
In accordance with paragraph 3.59 of the JSE Limited (JSE) Listings Requirements and paragraph 6.39 of the JSE
Debt Listings Requirements, shareholders are informed that the Absa Group and Absa Bank Boards (the Boards)
have resolved, in terms of section 71(3)(b) of the South African Companies Act, 71 of 2008 (the Companies Act),
that Sipho M Pityana will cease to be a director of the Boards, with immediate effect.
The Boards were of the view that, through his conduct, Mr Pityana had neglected, or been derelict in the performance
of, his functions as a director of the Boards.
This followed a meeting with Mr Pityana in which he was provided with an opportunity to address the Boards on this
issue. The Boards considered Mr Pityana’s responses and came to their decision after extensive deliberation.
