Montauk Renewables is a renewable energy company specializing in recovery and processing of biogas from landfills and other non-fossil fuel sources for beneficial use as a replacement to fossil fuels. The company develops, owns, and operates renewable natural gas ("RNG") projects in the US, using proven technologies that supply renewable fuel into the transportation and electrical power sectors. Montauk Renewables established its operating portfolio of 12 RNG and three renewable electricity projects through self-development, partnerships, and acquisitions resulting in revenue growth from $34 million in 2014 to $107.4 million in 2019.

Currently, Montauk Renewables' operating projects generate RNG from landfill sites and livestock farms, the latter being a significant opportunity to expand the RNG business as other agricultural markets are evaluated. The projects provide their landfill and livestock farm partners benefits including a means to monetize biogas from their sites, support for their regulatory compliance, and provision of environmental services. Revenues of Montauk Renewables are generated from the sale of renewable natural gas and electricity, under long-term contracts, along with the environmental attributes that are derived from these products.

The company has appointed Computershare Investor Services Proprietary Limited as its transfer secretaries in South Africa, which have their registered address and primary place of business at Rosebank Towers, 15 Biermann Avenue, Rosebank, Johannesburg, 2196, South Africa. Montauk's transfer agent in the US is Computershare Investor Services with its registered address and primary place of business in Louisville, Kentucky.

    I had 100 shares in Montauk when it closed on 18th on the JSE but now have only 80 shares in Montauk Renewables, how was this calculated to reduce my holding by 20%? Will appreciate an explanation

      From the SENS release on Jan 13, 2021:

      Montauk will distribute the Distribution Shares (subject to the withholding of the Withholding Shares) in the ratio of one Montauk Renewables Share for every one Share held by any such Shareholder on the Distribution Record Date. For Shareholders who are not exempt from Dividends Tax and not subject to Dividends Tax at a reduced rate and/or those Shareholders who are exempt from Dividends Tax or subject to Dividends Tax at a reduced rate but have not delivered the requisite Forms of Declarations and Undertakings to the Company in terms of section 64FA of the Income Tax Act (“Non-exempt Shareholders”), the Withholding Shares will be determined at the full rate of Dividends Tax which is 20%. Consequently, Non-exempt Shareholders will receive 0.8 Montauk Renewables Shares for every one Share held by any such Shareholder on the Distribution Record Date.

      So basically, you were deducted a dividend tax of 20%.
