Group overview


Our vision is to provide quality hospitality and leisure experiences at every one of our destinations.

Our owners


Our key shareholder at 31 March 2015 was Hosken Consolidated Investments Limited, a JSE listed investment holding company (through TIH). SABMiller disposed of all of its ordinary shares in Tsogo Sun during July 2014 through a fully marketed secondary placing of 301.7 million ordinary shares to selected South African and international institutional investors and a specific repurchase of 133.6 million ordinary shares by Tsogo Sun. Following the placing and the repurchase, the shareholding of Tsogo Sun, excluding treasury shares, changed to HCI holding 47.6% with the free float increasing to 52.4%. A detailed analysis of shareholdings as at 31 March 2015, is included in Analysis of shareholdings.

The HCI shareholding is of particular importance to the sustainability of the group as it provides the bulk of the 79% broad-based empowered ownership at group level, significantly simplifying our group structure as local empowerment is not required at individual property level, except where specifically required by provincial legislation.

Although the nature of our shareholding impacts the way we are managed due to the majority of the board being appointed by the major shareholder, the governance environment is robust and actively encouraged. Refer to the corporate governance section.
