ALLOCATION OF PARTICIPATION UNITS TO BENEFICIARIES

11.1
As soon as reasonably possible following the registration of the Trust, applying the Allocation Criteria, the Trustees shall send/deliver a once-off Allocation Notice to each selected Eligible Employee (whether electronically or otherwise), specifying, inter alia, the number of Participation Units that are to be vested in the Eligible Employee and the number of Trust Shares which are attributable to those Participation Units and the relevant Allocation Date applicable to those Participation Units.

11.2
Upon the Trustees sending/delivering such Allocation Notice, each Eligible Employee shall be deemed to have accepted such Allocation and the terms of the Trust Deed and shall immediately become a Beneficiary of this Trust. Should any Eligible Employee choose not to accept such Allocation they will be advised in the Allocation Notice of a contact number which they can call in order to formally reject the Allocation made in terms of the Allocation Notice. Any Eligible Employee who fails to follow such procedure within a period of 10 (ten) days from the Allocation Date stipulated in the Allocation Notice, shall be deemed to have accepted the Allocation and the terms of this Trust Deed and shall automatically become a Beneficiary of the Trust.

11.3
For the avoidance of doubt, the Allocation of Participation Units to a Beneficiary in terms of this clause 11 is subject to the employment service requirements contained in clause 13, and to the restrictions on transferability of those Participation Units until the expiry of the Lock-in Period, as set out in clause 12 below.

11.4
The Trust Shares that are attributable to the Participation Units that have been Allocated to a Beneficiary in terms of this clause 11, shall be registered in the name of this Trust to be held by this Trust on behalf of the Beneficiary concerned until the expiry of the Lock-in Period.

11.5
In the event of the cancellation of Participation Units in terms of this Trust Deed, the Trustees shall adjust the Beneficiary register referred to in clause 8.1 to reflect this. The Trust Shares that were attributable to those Participation Units that were cancelled shall then form part of the Pool Shares.

11.6
The Trustees shall Allocate Participation Units resulting in a vesting of the Pool Shares in terms of this Trust Deed, at any point in time prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, in accordance with and in the same manner set out in this clause 11. Accordingly, applying the Allocation Criteria, The Trustees shall send Allocation Notices to Eligible Employees that join/qualify after the initial Allocation of Participation Units for purposes of Allocating the Pool Shares provided that this takes place no later than the end of the month following the month during which such Eligible Employee qualified for participation in terms of this Trust.

12.
RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY OF UNITS

12.1
Prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period no Beneficiary shall be entitled to:

12.1.1
Encumber his Participation Units;

12.1.2
Sell his Participation Units;

12.1.3
enter into any agreement in respect of any votes attached to his Participation Units or enter into any derivative transaction in respect of his Participation Units;

12.1.4
agree, whether or not subject to any suspensive or resolutive condition, to do any of the foregoing; or

12.1.5
Sell or Encumber any Harmony Shares or enter into any agreement in respect of any votes attached to his Harmony Shares or enter into any derivative transaction in respect of his Harmony Shares.

12.2
In the event that a Beneficiary purports to do or does anything listed in clause 12.1 at any time prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, the Participation Units of the defaulting Beneficiary will be cancelled for no consideration, and he shall cease to be a Beneficiary of this Trust. The attributable Trust Shares in respect of such cancelled Participation Units shall thereafter form part of the Pool Shares and the Trustees shall adjust the Beneficiary register referred to in clause 8.1 to reflect this.

13.
EMPLOYMENT SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

13.1
If a Beneficiary ceases to remain in the employ of Harmony prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, his Participation Units shall be cancelled on the terms and subject to the conditions of this clause 13.

13.2
In cases where the Beneficiary ceases to remain in the employ of Harmony and is regarded as a Good Leaver in terms of clause 14.1, the full number of the Beneficiary’s Participation Units will forthwith be cancelled for consideration (less any transaction costs and taxes), being the proceeds from the sale of the attributable Trust Shares as set out in clause 14.1.2, and he will thereafter cease to be a Beneficiary of the Trust.

13.3
In the event that a Beneficiary ceases to be an employee of Harmony prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, and that Beneficiary is a Bad Leaver in terms of clause 14.2, all of that Beneficiary’s Participation Units will forthwith be cancelled for no consideration, and he will cease to be a Beneficiary of the Trust.

14.
TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT

14.1
Good Leaver / No Fault Termination

14.1.1
For the purposes of clause 13, if a Beneficiary leaves the employ of Harmony by reason of:

14.1.1.1
retirement, if such retirement takes place on or after the “Normal Retirement Age” in accordance with the rules applicable to Harmony;

14.1.1.2
termination of employment for operational requirements (retrenchment);

14.1.1.3
termination of employment for permanent ill-health, permanent injury or disability, as determined to the satisfaction of Harmony and in accordance with the rules applicable to the Company;

14.1.1.4
the Beneficiary leaving the employ of Harmony due to his death at any point prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period;

14.1.1.5
the Beneficiary remaining in the employ of Harmony but no longer qualifying as an Eligible Employee by reason of being promoted to “Management” (in accordance with Company’s recognised employment/occupational levels, as ordinarily understood and applied by the Company); or

14.1.1.6
due to the fact he/she is no longer employed by Harmony by reason of being transferred along with a mine or mining operation sold or transferred by Harmony as a going concern, then

that Beneficiary’s termination of employment or promotion (as the case may be) will be regarded as a “No Fault Termination” and the Beneficiary will qualify as a “Good Leaver” for purposes of the Trust.

14.1.2
Where the Beneficiary is a Good Leaver as contemplated in clause 14.1.1, the Beneficiary shall retain his full number of Participation Units until such time as his attributable Trust Shares are sold in terms of the bulk sale contemplated in terms of clause 14.1.3. The Beneficiary’s Participation Units shall remain subject to the restrictions contained in clause 12 until the last Business Day immediately prior to the date on which such bulk sale commences.
 
14.1.3
On any Business Day following the 23rd of each month a bulk sale of all Trust Shares attributable to all Good Leavers (whose termination of employment or promotion, as the case may be, took place from the 24th of the prior month to the 23rd of the current month), shall take place. Immediately prior to the bulk sale, the Beneficiary’s Participation Units shall be cancelled, the attributable Trust Shares shall then be sold per the bulk sale, and the proceeds derived from such sale shall be distributed to the Beneficiary (or his estate as the case may be), less any transaction costs and less any amounts required to be withheld for tax purposes. In calculating the amount of proceeds to be distributed to each Beneficiary, the Trustees shall apply an average amount attributable to each Trust Share sold in the bulk sale, determined in accordance with the formula contained in clause 17.2.3. The Beneficiary will also receive any accumulated Dividends, which have accrued to him in accordance with clause 16.1. For the avoidance of any doubt, the taxing event in respect of each Good Leaver shall be the volume weighted average price of the last Business Day immediately prior to the date on which the bulk sale commences.

14.2
Bad Leaver / Fault Termination

14.2.1
For the purposes of clause 13, if a Beneficiary leaves the employ of Harmony by reason of:

14.2.1.1
being lawfully dismissed, whether on grounds of termination of employment for poor performance, misconduct, or otherwise; or

14.2.1.2
resignation;

that Beneficiary’s termination of employment (as the case may be) will be regarded as a “Fault Termination” and the Beneficiary will qualify as a “Bad Leaver” for purposes of the Trust.

14.2.2
Where the Beneficiary is a Bad Leaver as contemplated in clause 14.2.1, all of that Beneficiary’s Participation Units shall forthwith be cancelled for no consideration, in terms of clause 13 and he shall cease to be a Beneficiary of this Trust and shall forfeit any future beneficial interest in the Trust. The attributable Trust Shares in respect of such cancelled Participation Units shall thereafter form part of the Pool Shares. The Beneficiary will however, receive any accumulated Dividends which have accrued to him in accordance with clause 16.1.

14.2.3
In the event that a Beneficiary is a Bad Leaver on the grounds set out in clause 14.2.1 and is however subsequently lawfully reinstated back to the employ of Harmony at any time prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, such person’s Participation Units shall be re-allocated in accordance with clause 11 and such person shall be re-instated as a Beneficiary of the Trust and be placed in the same position as he/she would have been as though he had not previously left Harmony’s employ.

14.2.4
In the event that a Beneficiary is a Bad Leaver on the grounds set out in clause 14.2.1 and is however subsequently lawfully reinstated back to the employ of Harmony after the expiry of the Lock-in Period, Harmony shall make a compensatory payment to such employee calculated with reference to the value of all benefits that they would have received had such employee remained a Beneficiary of the Trust as from the date of their initial termination of employment, provided that such employee provides proof to Harmony of the dispute (which gave rise to their reinstatement) having been formally lodged with the CCMA and/or the Labour Court either prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, or at least within 14 (fourteen) days thereafter.

15.
VOTING OF SHARES

The Trustees shall be entitled to vote or abstain from voting the Trust Shares at any general meeting of Harmony in their discretion and in the best interests of the Beneficiaries provided that the Trustees appointed in terms of clause 5.2.1.1 shall recuse themselves at such meeting. In the event of a deadlock between the Trustees regarding the voting of the Trust Shares, the Independent Trustee shall have the casting vote.

PART D: DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME AND CAPITAL TO BENEFICIARIES

16.
DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME

16.1
All Dividends received by the Trust in respect of the Trust Shares held on behalf of Beneficiaries attributable to their Participation Units shall immediately vest in the Beneficiary concerned. The Dividends shall however be retained and held in Trust by the Trustees on the Beneficiary’s behalf, and thereafter such Dividends accumulated on the Beneficiary’s behalf shall be paid by the Trustees to the Beneficiary less any relevant taxes applicable (including any dividend withholding tax that may have been payable), either upon the Beneficiary’s termination of employment, if such Beneficiary ceases to remain in the employ of Harmony prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, or upon the expiry of the Lock-in Period. Any dividends accumulated on the Beneficiaries’ behalf in terms of this clause 16.1 shall not accrue any interest and shall be held by the Trust in an appropriate bank account/facility for such purpose. For the purposes of determining a Beneficiary’s liability for dividend withholding tax imposed in terms of section 64E of the Income Tax Act, 58 of 1962 (as amended), the Trustees shall notify the relevant regulated intermediary that the Beneficiary concerned is the beneficial owner of the dividend and the Trustees shall ensure that all the appropriate documentation required for dividend withholding tax purposes has been obtained.

16.2
All Dividends received by the Trust in respect of the Pool Shares held by the Trust shall vest in and be paid to the Trust less any relevant taxes applicable (including any dividend withholding tax that may be payable). The amount received shall be used to defray any costs incidental to the administration of the Trust (including any taxes, costs and liabilities of the Trust) in accordance with clause 21.

17.
DISTRIBUTION OF SHARES AFTER EXPIRY OF THE LOCK-IN PERIOD

17.1
Upon the expiry of the Lock-in Period, each Beneficiary shall be entitled to such number of Trust Shares (excluding any Pool Shares), which are directly attributable to the number of Participation Units held by each Beneficiary and their vested rights derived therein.
 
17.2
Unless the Trustees receive a written notice from a Beneficiary at least 60 (sixty)days prior to the expiry of the Lock-in Period, indicating:

17.2.1
that he/she wishes to receive the Trust Shares;

17.2.2
how he/she intends to settle any attributable taxes if receiving the actual Trust Shares;

17.2.3
as well as providing details of their nominated or appointed broker/CSDP account into which those shares must be transferred to;

upon the expiry of the Lock-in Period, the Trustees shall sell on the Beneficiaries’ behalf each Beneficiary’s attributable Trust Shares determined in accordance with clause 17.1, and shall within a reasonable period thereafter distribute the proceeds from the sale of the Trust Shares to the Beneficiary concerned (net any amounts required to be withheld for tax purposes, whether by reason of employees’ tax or otherwise and any attributable transaction costs). For the avoidance of doubt, the Trust Shares sold for purposes of this clause 17.2, shall be sold as part of bulk sale and in calculating the amount of proceeds to be distributed to each Beneficiary the Trustees shall apply an average amount attributable to each Trust Share sold in the bulk sale, determined in accordance with the following formula:

Y = (E - F) / G     

Where:
“Y”
represents the average amount of proceeds per Trust Share sold as part of the bulk sale;
“E”
represents the total proceeds from the bulk sale of the Trust Shares (specifically excluding any Pool Shares);
“F”
represents the total amount of costs and securities transfer taxes that are attributable to the bulk sale; and
“G”
represents the total Trust Shares sold as part of the bulk sale (specifically excluding any Pool Shares).

17.3
With respect to the unallocated Pool Shares held by the Trust upon the expiry of the Lock-in Period, the Trustees shall at their discretion, be entitled to transfer the Pool Shares to any other Harmony trust with similar objectives to the Trust, or be entitled to sell such Pool Shares and pay over the proceeds from the sale of such Pool Shares to Harmony (provided the proceeds will ultimately benefit its employees), or any other Harmony trust with similar objectives to the Trust (net of any taxes or costs).

PART E: GENERAL

18.
CHANGE OF CONTROL

In the event of a change of Control of Harmony, the board of directors of Harmony shall be entitled to determine that the Lock-in Period will be deemed to expire on the date of the event which causes such change of Control, that the employment service requirements outlined in clause 13 will be deemed to be fulfilled, and that the Trustees shall transfer/distribute the Trust Shares to the Beneficiaries in terms of clause 17.

19.
MANDATORY SALE

19.1
Should the Trustees receive a written offer to purchase all or any of the Trust Shares held by the Trust (the Offer), before the expiry of the Lock-in Period, the Trustees shall not be entitled to sell those shares unless:

19.1.1
there is an order in terms of section 155 of the Companies Act requiring them to do so; or

19.1.2
there is an invocation of section 124 of the Companies Act and in such event only so many shares as are proportionate to offers accepted by the Beneficiaries in terms of section 124 of the Companies Act.

19.2
Should a sale referred to in clause 19.1 take place, the Trustees shall distribute the proceeds (net of any taxes or costs) in accordance with clause 17.
 
20.
VARIATION OF RIGHTS

20.1
For purposes of this clause, “Variation” shall mean, in relation to the issued share capital of Harmony, a capitalisation issue, a rights issue, a dividend in specie, an offer or invitation made by way of rights, a subdivision, a consolidation or a reduction, or any other variation which Harmony believes justifies an adjustment to a Beneficiary’s Participation Units.

20.2
In the event of a Variation, the number of Trust Shares stipulated in the Beneficiary register against the name of the Beneficiaries will be adjusted in proportion to each Beneficiary’s Participation Units in the manner that Harmony considers appropriate to take account of the Variation, provided that the Auditors shall certify that as far as possible in the circumstances the Beneficiaries are placed in a substantially similar position as they were before the Variation.

COSTS, EXPENSES AND TAXATION
