WITHDRAWAL OF CAUTIONARY

Shareholders are referred to the detailed cautionary announcement released by Altron on the Stock
Exchange News Service ("SENS") on 6 December 2016 ("Detailed Cautionary Announcement"),
relating to the in-principle agreement between the Company and Value Capital Partners (Pty) Ltd
("VCP") regarding, inter alia, the:

1. collapse of the Company´s historical dual share capital structure and the removal of the Venter
Family´s absolute voting control over the Company;
2. subscription by the Venter Family for a new high voting share which will entitle the Venter Family
to exercise 25.0% plus one vote at any shareholders' meeting for as long as the Venter Family
owns in excess of 10.0% of the "A" class shares in the Company;
3. introduction of VCP as a new strategic partner, which is expected to be a catalyst in driving
shareholder value creation by accelerating the Company´s growth initiatives within its core IT
operations; and
4. appointment of VCP´s co-founders, Antony Ball and Samuel Sithole, to the board of directors of
Altron as non-executive directors.
(collectively, the "Proposed Transaction")

In the Detailed Cautionary Announcement, Altron cautioned shareholders that the implementation of
the Proposed Transaction was subject to regulatory approvals. At that point in time Altron had no
certainty that the regulatory approvals would be obtained. Based on in-principle confirmations and
approvals received from the relevant regulators, Altron is now reasonably certain that all required
regulatory approvals will be obtained. As a result of the in-principle confirmations and approvals
obtained, the Company intends to pursue implementation of the Proposed Transaction and issue the
related circular in due course.

Shareholders are referred to the Detailed Cautionary Announcement released by the Company on
SENS on 6 December 2016 and are advised that caution is no longer required to be exercised by
shareholders when dealing in Altron´s securities.
