Forward-looking statements: Sasol may, in this document, make
certain statements that are not historical facts and relate
to analyses and other information which are based on
forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet
determinable. These statements may also relate to our future
prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of
such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited
to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume
growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return
and cost reductions. Words such as ?believe?, ?anticipate?,
?expect?, ?intend?, ?seek?, ?will?, ?plan?, ?could?, ?may?,
?endeavour? and ?project? and similar expressions are
intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are
not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By
their very nature, forward-looking statements involve
inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific,
and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts,
projections and other forward-looking statements will not be
achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or
should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual
results may differ materially from those anticipated. You
should understand that a number of important factors could
cause actual results to differ materially from the plans,
objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed
in such forward-looking statements. These factors are
discussed more fully in our most recent annual report under
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on Form 20-F filed on 12
October 2012 and in other filings with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors
discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-
looking statements to make investment decisions, you should
carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties
and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the
date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any
obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a
result of new information, future events or otherwise.
