Harmony brings in Meyer as FD

Meyer will come in as Financial Director Designate with effect from 1
August 2009.

Frank Abbott, Harmony’s interim FD since August 2007, has given notice of his
early retirement.

Abbott will hand over his financial director’s responsibilities to Meyer on 1

appointed to Harmony’s board as financial director on that date.

Graham Briggs Harmony’s CEO said: ‘Hannes not only has vast financial
experience, but is also very familiar with the mining industry. We searched for
an individual with financial engineering abilities and Hannes was by far the
strongest candidate.

‘I am pleased that Frank has agreed to stay on to ensure an effective
hand-over and continuity of the financial responsibilities.’
