Issue of Equity and Total Voting Rights

Posted on: 10 May 2011

The Company advises that it has issued a total of 2,000,000 new ordinary shares of EUR0.01 each ("Scheme Shares") at EUR2.99 per share, pursuant to the The NEPI Share Purchase Scheme.

Application has been made for the Scheme Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and the JSE Limited and the Scheme Shares are expected to be admitted to trading on 16 May 2011.

Following the admission to trading of the Scheme Shares, NEPI's share capital will consist of 78,933,734 ordinary shares of EUR 0.01 each ("Ordinary Shares") with voting rights. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in NEPI as at 16 May 2011 is 78,933,734.

The above figure of 78,933,734 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, NEPI under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules with effect from 16 May 2011.
