POSTING OF CIRCULAR RELATING TO SCRIP DISTRIBUTION OR CASH
DIVIDEND ELECTION
Shareholders are referred to the Company´s unaudited financial
results for the six months ended 31 March 2017, published on the
Stock Exchange News Service ("SENS") on 12 May 2017, in which they
were advised that Life´s board of directors had resolved to
declare an interim distribution of fully-paid Life ordinary shares
of R0.000001 each ("the Scrip Distribution") to ordinary
Shareholders ("Shareholders") recorded in the register of the
Company at the close of business on the Record Date, being Friday,
30 June 2017.
Shareholders will, however, be entitled to elect to receive a cash
dividend of 35 cents per ordinary share of R0.000001 each held on
the Record Date, being Friday, 30 June 2017, in respect of all or
part of their ordinary shareholding, instead of the Scrip
Distribution ("the Cash Dividend").
The Cash Dividend will be paid only to those:
- certificated Shareholders whose Forms of Election to
  receive the Cash Dividend, in respect of all or part of
  their shareholding, are received by the Transfer
  Secretaries on or before 12h00 on Friday, 30 June 2017;
  and
- dematerialised Shareholders who have instructed their
  CSDP or broker accordingly and in the manner and time
  stipulated in their agreement with such CSDP or broker.
The number of Scrip Distribution shares to which each of the
Shareholders will become entitled pursuant to the Scrip
Distribution (to the extent that such Shareholders have not
elected to receive the Cash Dividend) will be determined by
reference to such Shareholder´s ordinary shareholding in Life (at
the close of business on the Record Date, being Friday, 30 June
2017) in relation to the ratio that 35 cents multiplied by 1.025
bears to the volume weighted average price ("VWAP") of an ordinary
Life share traded on the JSE during the 15-day trading period
ending on Monday, 19 June 2017.
Shareholders are advised that a circular, setting out, inter alia,
the terms of the Scrip Distribution and Cash Dividend (and including
a Form of Election) will be posted to Shareholders today, Monday, 5
June 2017 ("the Circular"). The Circular is also available on the
Company´s website, www.lifehealthcare.co.za.

Dividend, also contained in the Circular, are as follows:
