Petra Diamonds Limited is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and is not dual listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, as such shares cannot be acquired in Rand in South Africa, but will need to be acquired via the LSE. Petra Diamonds welcomes the purchase of Petra shares by South Africans, and as a South African citizen the process of acquiring shares is best facilitated by discussing directly with your broker and enquiring as to whether they have an offshore trading platform or affiliated offshore broker who can execute the share purchases on the LSE.
The facilitating broker will typically look to ensure that, contingent on the underlying investor’s specific circumstances, the appropriate South African Reserve Bank and South African Revenue Services documentation and approvals are in place and that compliance with offshore investing allowances is in order.

In the last few years, the Company’s debt level became higher than anticipated, culminating in the need for a capital restructuring and debt for equity swap that completed in March 2021.
Since this time, the Company’s debt level has reduced considerably, aided by strong operational performance, the sale of exceptional diamonds and the buoyant diamond market. This has transformed the Company’s balance sheet and places Petra on a sustainable footing for the future. However, the financing agreement with our bondholders contains certain restrictions on dividend payments, which Petra must be in a position to comply with before declaring a dividend.
A Stocks and Shares ISA enables you to invest your money in the stock market, rather than simply saving it. You can invest your money into the shares of any company officially listed on a recognised stock exchange anywhere in the world. Petra Diamonds holds a premium listing on the Official List of the London Stock Exchange, therefore you are able to hold Petra shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA. The tax efficiency of the ISA is dependent on your individual circumstances. For more information, please review http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/isa/faqs.htm#24.
