Certain statements made in this communication, other than statements of historical fact, including, without limitation, those concerning the economic outlook
for the gold mining industry, expectations regarding gold prices, production, cash costs and other operating results, growth prospects and outlook of
AngloGold Ashanti’s operations, individually or in the aggregate, including the completion and commencement of commercial operations of certain of
AngloGold Ashanti’s exploration and production projects and the completion of acquisitions and dispositions, AngloGold Ashanti’s liquidity and capital
resources and capital expenditure and the outcome and consequence of any potential or pending litigation or regulatory proceedings or environmental
issues, are forward-looking statements or forecasts regarding AngloGold Ashanti’s operations, economic performance and financial condition. These
forward-looking statements or forecasts involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual
results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the anticipated results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in these forward-
looking statements. Although AngloGold Ashanti believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements or forecasts are reasonable,
no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct. Accordingly, results could differ materially from those set out in the
forward-looking statements as a result of, among other factors, changes in economic and market conditions, success of business and operating initiatives,
changes in the regulatory environment and other government actions including environmental approvals and actions, fluctuations in gold prices and
exchange rates, and business and operational risk management. For a discussion of certain of these and other factors, refer to AngloGold Ashanti's annual
report for the year ended 31 December 2011, which was distributed to shareholders on 4 April 2012 and the company’s 2011 annual report on Form 20-F,
which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States on 23 April 2012. These factors are not necessarily all of the important
factors that could cause AngloGold Ashanti’s actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Other unknown or
unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on future results. Consequently, stakeholders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on
forward-looking statements. AngloGold Ashanti undertakes no obligation to update publicly or release any revisions to these forward-looking statements to
reflect events or circumstances after today’s date or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except to the extent required by applicable law. All
subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to AngloGold Ashanti or any person acting on its behalf are qualified by the cautionary
statements herein.
This communication may contain certain “Non-GAAP” financial measures. AngloGold Ashanti utilises certain Non-GAAP performance measures and ratios
in managing its business. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the reported operating results or
cash flow from operations or any other measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. In addition, the presentation of these measures may
not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies may use.
