Implats has the option to call the bonds at par plus accrued interest at any time if the aggregate value of the underlying shares per bond for a specified period of time is 130% or more of the principal amount of that bond. The effective interest rate of the bond is 12.8%.|

The value of this conversion option derivative was R559 million at initial recognition. Implats has the option to call the bonds at par plus accrued interest at any time if the aggregate value of the underlying shares per bond for a specified period of time is 130% or more of the principal amount of that bond.

|10.1||Cross-Currency Interest Rate Swap (CCIRS) (2022)|
|Implats entered into a CCIRS amounting to US$250 million to hedge the foreign exchange risk on the
US$ convertible bond, being: exchange rate risk on the dollar interest payments and the risk of a future
cash settlement of the bonds at a rand-dollar exchange rate weaker than R13.025/US$. US$250 million
was swapped for R3 256 million on which Implats pays a fixed interest rate to Standard Bank of 9.8%.
Implats receives the 3.25% coupon on the US$250 million on the same date which Implats pays-on
externally to the bond holders and the interest thereon. In June 2022, Implats will receive US$250 million
for a payment of R3 256 million.
The CCIRS is carried at its fair value of R21 million asset (2017: R49 million liability). No hedge accounting has been applied.

|The US$ bond holders have the option to convert the bonds to Implats shares at a price of US$3.89. The conversion option was valued at its fair value of R50 (June 2017: R547) million at year end, resulting in a R497 million profit for the period in other income.|
|10.3||Conversion option – ZAR convertible bond (2022) (note 9.3)|
|The ZAR bond holders have the option to convert the bonds to Implats shares at a price of R50.01. The conversion option was accounted for in equity, upon receipt of shareholders approval to settle this option by means of Implats shares, at a fair value of R625 million, resulting in a R12 million profit for the period in other income.|
