DIVIDEND DECLARATION

With the actions in place to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on the financial performance of Cartrack for the year ahead, coupled with the inherently
strong cash flow of the Group as well as the access to funding, shareholders are advised that the board of directors is satisfied with the solvency and
liquidity of the Group and has declared an interim gross cash dividend of 87 cents per ordinary share (69.6 cents net of dividend withholding tax) for the
six months ended 31 August 2020 (the cash dividend). The cash dividend will be paid out of retained earnings of the company.

The cash dividend is in line with the current dividend policy, which provides for a cover of between 1 and 10 times HEPS, effective for HY21.

TAX IMPLICATIONS

The cash dividend is likely to have tax implications for both resident and non-resident shareholders. Shareholders are therefore encouraged to consult
their professional tax advisers should they be in any doubt as to the appropriate action to take.

In terms of the Income Tax Act, the cash dividend will, unless exempt, be subject to dividend withholding tax ('DWT'). South African resident shareholders
that are liable for DWT, will be subject to DWT at a rate of 20% of the cash dividend and this amount will be withheld from the cash dividend. Non-resident
shareholders may be subject to DWT at a rate of less than 20% depending on their country of residence and the applicability of any double tax treaty
between South Africa and their country of residence.
