Harmony disposes of its remaining shares in Gold Fields Limited

Harmony (NYSE: HMY; JSE: HAR) today announced that it had disposed of its remaining 26,5 Million Gold Fields Limited shares at an average price of R93.228 per share. The process was concluded through market disposals which commenced on 10 November 2005 and an open market offering on 15 and 16 November 2005.

“The disposal of our remaining shares in Gold Fields has significantly strengthened our balance sheet. In addition, with Harmony’s re-structuring process being concluded during the previous quarter, the company is well-positioned to fully exploit the current higher gold price in Rand/kg terms. This bodes well for Harmony who through the development of our range of growth projects in South Africa and Papua New Guinea will be transformed from a high cost marginal producer to producing high margin quality ounces”, commented Harmony CEO, Bernard Swanepoel.

Merrill Lynch South Africa acted as sole bookrunner for this transaction.

A full SENS announcement with more details regarding the disposal will follow.
