Amended Code Series 100: Measurement of the Ownership Element of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment

Statement 100: The General Principles for Measuring Ownership

Key measurement principles

3.7 Mandated Investments


3.7 Mandated Investments


3.7.1 When determining Ownership in a Measured Entity, rights of Ownership of Mandated Investments may be excluded.


3.7.2 The maximum percentage of the Ownership of any Measured Entity that may be so excluded is 40%.


3.7.3 A Measured Entity electing not to exclude Mandated Investments when it is entitled to do so, may either treat all of that Ownership as non-Black or obtain a competent person's report estimating the extent of Black rights of Ownership measurable in the Measured Entity and originating from that Mandated Investments.


3.7.4 A Measured Entity cannot selectively include or exclude Mandated Investments and therefore an election to exclude one Mandated Investment is an election to exclude all Mandated Investments and visa versa.


3.7.5 A Measured Entity applying the Exclusion Principle to Mandated Investments cannot benefit from the Modified Flow-Through Principle.
