In the spirit of transparency and open communication with our customers we would like to advise you of the impending change in ownership. We have been in negotiations with the Tsebo Outsourcing Group which has expressed an interest in acquiring a stake within the company.

Pending approval from the Competition Commission, Tsebo Outsourcing Group has acquired Thorburn Security Solutions (Northern Region) Pty) Ltd, Thorburn Security Solutions (Southern Region) (Pty) Ltd and Thorburn Remote Monitoring (Pty) Ltd.

 I will remain as CEO with Dolf Scheepers (Northern Region) and Koos van Rooyen (Southern Region) as respective Managing Directors.  The technical, cleaning and armed response businesses will remain in Thorburn Holdings with no change in shareholding and ownership.  We foresee no structural or employment changes.

Our business association with our customers has always been a partnership that continuously strives to provide effective support services, enabling our customers to focus on their core business.  As Chief Executive Officer and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I assure you that the quality offering you experience from your partnerships with Thorburn Security Solutions will continue.  The expertise, experience, and management skills that have made us your partner of choice will remain without any reduction in personnel or changes to the management structure.  Due to the strength of the Thorburn brand, these companies will continue to operate under their existing brand names, so in essence it is business as usual.

Tsebo Outsourcing is a truly South African company with a Level 2 BBBEE rating which has been providing facility management services for more than 40 years and currently employs approximately 26 000 staff at over 5 000 sites across Africa and the Middle East. It is our belief that Tsebo will inject a new level of engagement, providing the necessary structure to develop and grow those skills for the benefit of our customers.

You will be kept informed of the outcome of the Competition Commission process.

Please contact either Dolf Scheepers/Koos van Rooyen or myself should you wish to discuss further details of the agreement.

Yours sincerely,


FC Smit
