Naspers Limited
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)
(Registration number 1925/001431/06)
share code: NPN ISIN Code: ZAE000015889
(“Naspers” or the “Company” or the “Group”)

Naspers today announced a capital raising by way of a private placement to
institutional investors of new Naspers N shares (“New N Shares”), to raise the ZAR-
equivalent of approximately US$750 million (the “Capital Raising”). The Capital
Raising will be undertaken primarily by way of an issue of shares for cash under the
JSE Listings Requirements. Application will be made for the New N Shares to be
admitted to trading on the JSE Limited.

In addition, Naspers has granted an over-allotment option, pursuant to which it may
issue up to an additional 15% of the number of shares placed in terms of the Capital
Raising in order to cover over-allotments, if any.

Use of Proceeds
Proceeds from the Capital Raising will be used in the execution of Naspers’s
international investment strategy and to replenish internal resources utilised for the
purposes of Naspers’ acquisitions of Russian internet portal, Brazilian
magazine publisher Abril and Chinese sports publisher Titan. Naspers is currently
pursuing several acquisitions, some of which may be material, although no binding
agreements have been entered into at this stage.

Recent Financial Performance Update
Naspers published its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2006 on
29 November 2006. The Group has not published financial information in respect of
the three month period to 31 December 2006. However, based on currently available
information, the Group continues to grow. Revenue growth was largely driven by an
increase of an additional 100,000 pay television subscribers for the period whilst
advertising revenues continued to show growth. The internet businesses maintained
their market leadership and the technology businesses showed progress.

Operating profit before amortisation and other gains/losses continued to grow at
similar levels to that reported in September 2006.

However, investors need to be aware that the Group remains subject to the trading,
political, regulatory and technological risks previously identified, as well as those
which the Group may currently not foresee.

The above financial information has not been reviewed or audited by the Group’s
