Johannesburg, 12 September 2018

Commenting on the listing, Raven Property Group Chief Executive, Glyn Hirsch says,
We're very pleased to be able to offer South African investors the opportunity to participate in the long-term performance of the Group. We are confident that as the Russian economic recovery continues to gain momentum, this will be of great interest to investors seeking progressive distributions from a business that provides both geographic and currency diversification."
