11 May 2011

African Rainbow Minerals Limited would like to provide clarification on recent media coverage reporting on the performance of the Kenya Stock Exchange which has referred to “ARM”. This coverage does not refer to African Rainbow Minerals Limited, which is listed on the exchange operated by the JSE Limited under the ticker symbol ARI, but rather to Athi River Mining which is listed on the Nairobi Stock Exchange in Kenya under the ticker symbol ARML KN.

Please also note that there exists a British technology company trading under the name ARM Holdings which is listed on the London Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ under the ticker symbols ARM and ARMH respectively.
