Naspers dropped 30% (to R2465) after listing its offshore internet assets in Amsterdam as a separate company called Prosus.
The steep fall in the share price is due to Naspers now owning only 75% of Prosus (instead of 100% of it on Tuesday).
Prosus is now the holder of a 31% stake in Chinese tech giant Tencent.
Naspers retains control of Prosus through its ownership of 75% of Prosus' shares.
