South African Constitutional Court Pronounces Judgment on Reserved Issue

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwired - March 24, 2015) - Net 1 UEPS Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: UEPS) (JSE: NT1) today provided a further update on the SASSA tender process.

Further to the South African Constitutional Court's ("Court") judgment as described in the Company's press release dated March 19, 2015, the Court today passed judgment on the only remaining matter it had reserved judgment on. The Court had reserved judgment on the request by certain parties for an order directing that parties may only approach the Court for further relief if it is necessary to protect the interests of beneficiaries.

The Court did not grant the request to make it explicit that parties may only approach the Court for further relief if it is necessary to protect the interest of beneficiaries. The Court ordered that parties may only approach the Court for further relief, and stated that the interest of beneficiaries will be central to the exercise of the Court's jurisdictional discretion when it decides whether it is in the interest of justice to entertain such an application.

The complete judgments of the Court dated March 19 and 24, 2015, are available on the Company's website.
