Bounty Brands, the fast moving consumer goods business with a portfolio of leading
brands that are sold in over 40 countries, announces the acquisition of Stella Pack and
the completion of two additional acquisitions.

Stella Pack is Poland’s leading manufacturer of recycled refuse bags and other non-
chemical household products, with well-recognised brands and a broad product portfolio. It has a diversified base of long-standing customers and a significant presence outside of
Poland, with international sales representing c.40% of revenues.

In 2016, Stella Pack generated revenues of PLN 222 million (ZAR 820 million and GBP
45.6 million).

The addition of Stella Pack represents a further expansion of Bounty Brands’ Home Care
activities, which are focused on non-chemical kitchen and cleaning accessories. It is
complementary to its Tuffy business in South Africa, which manufactures and distributes
a range of recycled refuse and carrier bags, as well as food bags and other household
products. Earlier this year, Bounty Brands also acquired Genesis, a South African
manufacturer and distributer of cleaning products and accessories into the cleaning
services market, with revenues of more than ZAR 360 million (GBP 20 million).

The acquisition of a controlling shareholding in Stella Pack is the company’s second major acquisition in Poland following the purchase of Sonko, the market-leading, value-
added rice and healthy snacks business, and is consistent with Bounty Brands’ strategy of expanding its presence in Central and Eastern Europe (“CEE”).

Nuance Brands, which owns the exclusive rights to import and retail the SuperDry brand
in South Africa, was bought as a bolt-on acquisition to Bounty’s Apparel division and will
add revenues of ZAR 100 million (GDP 5.6 million) to the group.

Stefan Rabe, Chief Executive Officer, said:
“With these acquisitions we continue to make good progress on our strategic aim of
creating a successful multi-national consumer brands business delivering superior and
sustainable growth. In particular, Stella Pack further diversifies our income stream
geographically and provides us with leading brands in Home Care in a key CEE market.”
