  3. Organisational Structure Overview (cont.) • No centralised supplier accounts are run by the Group, each member being responsible for its own financial and credit relationship with suppliers • Purchasing is conducted at a Group level through the head office, as well as at a store level • As a business, EST Africa has a focus on improving the trading term packages allocated by suppliers to independent traders and has adopted a transparent business formula allowing both members and suppliers to reach their full potential • The EST Africa strategy for growth focuses both on increased turnover within the current member base, as well as expansion of the member footprint, enhanced warehousing, distribution and re-distribution capabilities, targeted regional ranging and specialist category expansion, developing a consummate customer understanding and enhanced customer communication both at Group and member level • Ongoing focus will remain on using the Group’s buying power to achieve best-in-class trading terms to optimize profitability both for itself and its member base. In addition, a relentless drive to increase sales in Sub-Saharan Africa is a primary pillar of the Group’s expansion strategy, with the Elite Star member base firmly focused on the African market, based primarily on the development of member export capability | Elite Star Trading Africa | Organisational Structure

  9. Organisational Structure Buying Structure • Group Level • Centralised buying and price negotiation conducted at Head Office • Rebates negotiated at Head Office for all member stores. Benchmarked prices always set at head office level • Promotional pricing and jabs negotiated centrally • Approximately 90% of member’s stock is purchased through the Group Head Office • Buying department structured into: • Foods (headed by Mohammed Varachia) • Building/Hardware (headed by Rob Suttle) • Member Level • Store-level procurement conducted over and above that at a national level - approximately 10% of member’s stock • Extent of store-level buying dependent on member volume/value (i.e. what the store is able to offer the supplier) • Members hold own accounts with suppliers, the Group does not hold centralised accounts on behalf of its member base • For constructive negotiation at a store level, it is advantageous for suppliers to have a strong understanding of regional/local brands and price points as well as be observant of POP drivers in-store | Elite Star Trading Africa | Organisational Structure
