On 7 November 2013, Lonmin, announced that the Chairman of its board of directors, Roger Phillimore, had indicated his intention to retire from office during 2014.

The Company now announces that Roger Phillimore will retire as Chairman of the board and as a director of the Company at the close of business on 30 April 2014.

With effect from 1 May 2014, Brian Beamish, an independent non-executive director who joined the board on 1 November 2013, will become Interim Chairman of the board of directors.

He has been a superb leader of the board in what were oftenextremely challenging circumstances.

The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Ben Magara said, “Roger has been a great pillar of support for me since my arrival at Lonmin and I will always be grateful for the support and wise counsel he invariably provides.I have known Brian for many years, and have the greatest respect for him personally and for his considerable knowledge of the challenges facing the platinum mining industry.”

He is somebody I know I can work with in achieving our objectives in the years ahead,” concludes Magara.
