SASOL PROVIDES ADDITIONAL HISTORICAL DISCLOSURE FOR PERFORMANCE
CHEMICALS SEGMENT

On 1 July 2014, Sasol introduced a value chain-based operating
model for the group, replacing Sasol?s previous operating model,
which was based on business units organised by product lines. This
resulted in a change of its segmental reporting for the 2015
financial year. In order to assist its investors, analysts and
other stakeholders to better understand the new segmental reporting
structure, Sasol published revised historical segmental reporting
for its 2013, 2014 and half-year 2014 financial periods on 21
November 2014. This included other non-financial information, such
as Business Performance Metrics for these periods.

Following the publication of this information in November last
year, Sasol has been engaging with various stakeholders regarding
its new operating model and the revised segmental disclosure. Based
on feedback received during these interactions, Sasol has decided
to provide some additional historical performance metrics for its
Performance Chemicals segment. These additional metrics will also
be provided in future quarterly releases of the Business
Performance Metrics.

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

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. 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
