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 is pleased to announce the pricing of the capital raising announced on 27
February 2007 (the "Capital Raising").

In the Capital Raising, 39.9 million new Naspers “N” shares (“New “N” Shares”) have
been placed with institutional investors by way of a private placement at an offer price
of ZAR163.00 (the "Offer Price") per New “N” Share. The Offer Price of ZAR163.00
represents a discount of 1.2% to the closing price of Naspers “N” shares on the JSE
Limited (the “JSE”) on 7 March 2007 and a discount of 9.0% to the weighted average
traded price of Naspers “N” shares on the JSE over the 30 prior trading days. Based on
the Offer Price, the gross proceeds to be received by Naspers will be approximately
ZAR6.5 billion, or approximately US$875 million (at an indicative ZAR/US$ exchange
rate of 7.43). The New “N” Shares represent approximately 12.4 per cent of Naspers’
issued “N” ordinary share capital prior to the Capital Raising.

Proceeds from the Capital Raising will be used in the execution of Naspers’ investment
strategy and to replenish internal resources utilised for the purposes of acquiring
interests in the Russian internet portal and the Brazilian magazine publisher

As is customary in both local and international primary capital raisings, Naspers has
granted an over-allotment option pursuant to which Naspers may be required to issue an
additional 5.7 million New “N” Shares at the Offer Price, in order to cover over-
allotments, if any.

The New “N” Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari
passu in all respects with the existing issued “N” ordinary shares of Naspers, including
the right to receive future dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after
the date of their issue. Application will be made for the New “N” Shares to be admitted
to trading on the JSE ("Admission"). Admission, settlement and commencement of
dealings are expected to take place on or around 15 March 2007.
This announcement has been issued by, and is the sole responsibility of Naspers

shares in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law. Any persons reading this
