Quantum did not disclose the terms of the deal.

Quantum said last December it was in talks that could have an impact on the company’s share price. In a disclosure to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, it said: “Shareholders are referred to the SENS announcements dated 28 September 2015 and 9 November 2015 and are advised that the company is still in negotiations, which if successfully concluded may have a material effect on the price of the company’s securities. Accordingly, shareholders are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the company’s securities until a full announcement is made.”
