Harmony takes steps to address Continued Listing Standard Notice received from NYSE

Johannesburg: Friday, 11 September 2015. Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited (“Harmony” or “the Company”) advises that the Company (ticker on NYSE: HMY) was notified by the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on the 8th of September 2015 that the trading price of the Harmony American Depositary Receipt (“ADR” or “Harmony ADR”) has fallen below the NYSE’s continued listing standard. The NYSE requires that a Harmony ADR’s minimum average closing price should not be less than US$1.00 per ADR over a period of 30 consecutive trading days.

The NYSE notification does not affect the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements and has no impact on the Harmony’s business operations.

Under the NYSE’s rules, the Company has a period of six months from the date of receipt of the NYSE notice to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement. During this period, the Harmony ADR will continue to be traded on the NYSE, subject to the Company’s compliance with other NYSE listing requirements.

Harmony intends to consider available alternatives - such as changing the ratio between the ADRs and the underlying ordinary shares (also referred to as a ‘reverse stock split’) - to cure the share price deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standard. Any action taken to ensure compliance is not expected to affect Harmony’s market capitalization.
