1 An index underpinned by the Islamic system of financial management MARKET DATA Indices Shariah All Share Johannesburg Stock Exchange

2 The Islamic system of financial management is faith-based, underpinned by the Qur anic proscription on riba (interest) and gharar (intentional incomplete disclosure or uncertainty). These Islamic financial products such as banking, mortgages, equity funds, fixed income, insurance, project finance, private equity and derivatives have grown considerably over the last 3-4 years. As such, a core component of the Islamic system of financial management is Shariah-compliance. There can be no compromise on Shariah compliance, otherwise the product or service may not be deemed as acceptable. Islamic finance is no longer only available in Muslim countries but also to some of the world s biggest financial institutions seeking to invest in the emerging markets. A growing interest from investment banks, hedge funds and even pension fund managers exists, therefore necessitating a neutral benchmark. For this reason, the Africa Series is being enhanced with the launch of the Shariah All Share, the first index of its kind in South Africa. This index is designed to track the performance of companies by full market capitalisations, whose activities are consistent with Islamic Shariah law. The index series is calculated by FTSE and the screening is then undertaken by Shariah consultants, Yasaar Research Inc., against a clear set of guiding principles. Yasaar s panels of high-profile Shariah scholars have extensive market expertise in all of the world s major financial centres. Screening Methodology Business activity screening Financial ratios screening Initially, companies involved in any of the following activities will be filtered out as non Shariah-compliant: > > Conventional Finance (non-islamic Banking, Finance and Insurance, etc.) > > Alcohol > > Pork-related products and/or non-halal food production, packaging and processing or any other activity related to pork and/or non-halal food > > Entertainment (casinos, gambling and pornography) > > Tobacco > > Weapons, arms and/or defence manufacturing Financial ratios screening The remaining companies are then further screened on a financial basis. The following financial ratios must be met for companies to be considered Shariah-compliant: > > Debt is less than 33% of total assets > > Cash and interest- bearing items are less than 33% of total assets > > Accounts receivable and cash are less than 50% of total assets > > Total interest and non-compliant activities income should not exceed 5%of total revenue 2

3 Features > > Impartial: By partnering with Yasaar Ltd., an impartial consultancy and leading authority on Shariah, the structure of the Shariah All Share remains neutral and fully up-to-date with latest practices > > Fatwa-certified: The Shariah All Share as part of the FTSE Shariah Global Equity Series has been fully certified as Shariahcompliant through the issue of a Fatwa (Islamic legal opinion) by Yasaar s principals. To view this document visit > > Asset-based debt screening: Unlike other competitor methodologies, a more conservative approach to Shariah compliance is ensured by rating debt ratio limits that are measured as a percentage of total assets, rather than more volatile measures that use 12-month trailing market capitalisation. This ensures that companies do not pass the screening criteria due to market price fluctuation, allowing the methodology to be less speculative and more in keeping with Shariah principles > > School-neutral: Yasaar Research Inc. scholars represent all of the major Shariah schools of thought, creating a best practices approach that has credibility across all regions of the Islamic world Daily data services useful links in the chain The following data product files are available for the Shariah All Share : Live Data Service This service provides subscribers with the intra- day index values (Real-time index calculated every 60 seconds) via InfoWiz. End-of-day Data Products This service provides subscribers with the following end-of-day data files which are produced in a flat file format and are available for download directly from the JSE via File Transfer Protocol (FTP). These files are subscribed to as a packaged product namely, valuations, constituents and tracker (including five-day tracker). > > Valuation Data Service This service provides subscribers with a file containing index level data. It provides the end-of-day capital and total return index values, the index code, index market capitalisation and number of constituents. The file also contains information on the ex dividend adjustment for the day (XD Adjustment) as well as the XD adjustment for the year-to-date, along with the actual dividend yield of the index. > > Constituent Data Service This service provides subscribers with a file which contains information on all the index constituents, inter alia, the constituent name, the ISIN and exchange code, the closing price, the total market capitalisation, the investable market capitalisation (the total market cap adjusted for free float), the number of shares in issue and the percentage weight of the constituent in the index. > > Tracker Data Service This service provides subscribers with a file highlighting corporate actions and constituent changes that will be implemented that evening, effective for open the following trading day. The service is designed to give users forward notice of corporate events and index changes, allowing them to plan for and implement any changes to their own investment products in a timely fashion. The file is split into three sections. Islamic finance is now available to some of the world s biggest financial institutions seeking to invest in the emerging markets First section Level Data, contains index changes to the number of constituents in the index, the market capitalisation of the index, index divisor, as well as the XD adjustment figure. 3

4 Second section Company Level Data, contains changes to the industry classification of the company, the closing shares in issue and the new shares in issue, the closing investability weighting used in the index calculation and the new investability weighting, and changes to the closing price. There is also an indication of whether a secondary line related to the company has been included in the calculation, and further amendment notes to give details of any housekeeping changes such as changes to the constituent name, a constituent addition or deletion, or a change to the ISIN. Corporate actions such as capital repayments, capitalisation issues, rights issues, subdivisions, complex corporate actions, consolidations and share changes will also be detailed in notes for the service user. Third section Dividend Information at Constituent Level, contains the ex-dividend date, the dividend amount, the ISO currency code for dividend payment, the XD adjusted values, and a FTSE dividend code to indicate the type of dividend issued (e.g. final dividend or interim dividend). > > Five-Day Tracker Service This service provides users with a rolling five-day preview of upcoming corporate actions and company changes. It includes constituent changes such as name changes, investability weight changes and corporate actions such as capital repayments, rights issues and share changes.
