Global discount retailers Steinhoff and its subsidiary Steinhoff Africa Retail (STAR) have entered into call option agreements with Lancaster Group Proprietary, the Public Investment Corporation  and Titan Premier Investments, a family trust of Billionaire Christo Wiese to acquire economic and voting interests in Thibault Square Financial Services and Africa’s largest retail group – Shoprite for R8 billion or $593 million. Once the call option is exercised Steinhoff and its subsidiary will hold a 22.7% economic interest and 50% of the voting rights in Shoprite.

STAR is likely to be included in the JSE Top 40 Index and other relevant emerging market
indices, such as the MSCI Emerging Market Index.
