On Friday, 23 April 2004, the High Court of Ghana confirmed the scheme of arrangement between Ashanti and its shareholders pursuant to which AngloGold will acquire the entire issued ordinary share capital of Ashanti. The confirmation of the High Court was lodged with the Registrar of Companies in Ghana on Monday, 26 April 2004, and the merger of the companies and the name change to ANGLOGOLD ASHANTI LIMITED became effective on Monday, 26 April 2004.

AngloGold securities will trade as ANGLOGOLD ASHANTI on the New York Stock Exchange on Monday, 26 April 2004, on the London Stock Exchange, the Australian Stock Exchange, on the Euronext in Paris and Brussels on Tuesday, 27 April 2004 and on the JSE Securities Exchange on Wednesday, 28 April 2004, following a public holiday in South Africa on 27 April 2004.

AngloGold shareholders in possession of AngloGold share certificates need not take any action, since the share certificates reflecting the former name of the Company will still be good for delivery.
