Further to the summarised consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2023 as released on SENS and the company’s website, the Prosus N.V. board has recommended that, in total, its shareholders receive a distribution of a gross amount of approximately €175m which represents an increase of approximately 7% for free-float shareholders. Subject to the requisite approval by Prosus shareholders being obtained, a dividend will be paid by Naspers in relation to the Naspers N ordinary shares and A ordinary shares from the amount that Naspers receives from Prosus, in accordance with the rights attaching to the shares as set out in the Naspers memorandum of incorporation.
