Notice of annual general meeting


This integrated report covers the activities of Hyprop Investments Limited

for the financial year ended 30 June 2015, and follows a similar report for the

year ended 30 June 2014.

Hyprop continues to provide a comprehensive view of the company in one

integrated report, with supplementary information on our website. This

report identifies and explains the material economic, social, governance

and environmental issues facing the group and their impact. We regard this

report as a valuable opportunity to engage with our stakeholder groups and

respond to issues raised. The report should enable stakeholders to evaluate

Hyprop’s ability to create and sustain value over the short, medium and long


Scope and boundary

The reporting on our sustainability initiatives covers the group holding

company and shopping centres in our sub-Saharan Africa portfolio (including

South Africa).

Material changes to the size, structure or ownership of the group during

the year included the sales of non-core assets: CapeGate Lifestyle Centre,

CapeGate Value Centre and Stoneridge. Effective 1 July 2014, all investments

in sub-Saharan Africa (excluding South Africa) are held through Hyprop

Investments Mauritius, a wholly owned subsidiary.
