CEO Year End Message

Greetings
As we draw the curtain on 2020, I would like to take the opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a safe and prosperous festive season.

We are in the second wave of COVID-19, and a new variant which is more infectious and more transmissible has been identified. I would like to urge you to avoid gatherings, practice social distancing, wear a mask and wash your hands regularly. Your safety is most important to me.

2020 has been a difficult and confusing year for most of us, but I would like to thank you for your positivity, energy and steadfast contribution to the success of Arnot Opco. You and your teams showed what it means to be an Arnot Opco team member; you never give up! I am proud to lead you.

Enjoy your holiday, keep safe and return re-energized, because in 2021 we will need to put coal on the belt as soon as possible.

Yours in safety
Bontle Aphane
Chief Executive Officer
