Commentary
The group recorded a net loss for the period ended
31 December 2015 of R50 million (2015: R58 million for the
period ended 31 December 2014 and R84 million for the year
ended 30 June 2015), showing an improvement of 14% from
the previous period. This was mainly driven by the 4,4%
decrease in finance costs and a decrease in taxation charge.
This was partially offset by an increase in other expenses of
R8 million, due to costs incurred in respect of the listing on
the JSE.

Due to the nature of the business, the company recorded
a loss per share of R3,13 for the period ended 31 December
2015 (R3,62 for the period ended 31 December 2014 and
R5,25 for the year ended 30 June 2015).

Our investment in Sasol Limited was revalued at the
closing market price of R419,40 per Sasol Limited ordinary
share as at 31 December 2015, to a value of R6 746 million
(R6 933 million at 31 December 2014 at a closing market
price of R431,01 per share and R7 238 million at 30 June
2015 at a closing market price of R450 per share) in line
with the group's accounting policy on investment in Sasol
Limited.

The group generated sufficient cash from dividends
received on the investment in Sasol Limited to fund
operating activities, finance costs and to repay long-term
debt during the period. Cash retained from operating
activities for the period ended 31 December 2015 amounted
to R137 million (2015: R125 million for the period ended
31 December 2014 and R256 million for the year ended
30 June 2015). The increase is mainly due to lower security
transfer tax paid and lower finance costs paid on the
A preference shares.

Listing of Sasol Inzalo ordinary shares
Sasol Inzalo Public Limited (RF) ("Sasol Inzalo") was listed on
1 December 2015 on the BEE Segment of the Main Board of
the Johannesburg Stock Exchange ("JSE"). 

The listing provides existing and prospective shareholders
with access to a licensed trading platform and the flexibility
of transacting on a world-class stock exchange. This listing
continues to ensure that Sasol Inzalo Public ordinary shares
are traded exclusively amongst BEE compliant persons, as
defined in the JSE Listings Requirements.

Subsequent events
There were no events subsequent to 31 December 2015
requiring disclosure.

Change in directors
Ms Z Ntwasa was appointed as a non-executive director
with effect from 1 December 2015. Mss L Mogudi and
T Zondi resigned as non-executive directors with effect
from 21 November 2015. Ms V Doo resigned as non-
executive director with effect from 15 March 2016.

Declaration of cash dividend
Taking into account the continued decline in the value of
the underlying investment (Sasol Limited) due to the low oil
price and difficult macroeconomic environment, the board
of directors has seen it prudent to conserve cash and have
concluded that no cash dividend be declared for the period
ended 31 December 2015.

Basis of preparation and accounting policies

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements
for the six months ended 31 December 2015 have been
prepared in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standard, IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting,
the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by
the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial
Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting
Standards Council and the requirements of the Companies
Act of South Africa and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange
Listings Requirements. The condensed consolidated interim
financial results were approved for issue by the Sasol Inzalo
Public Limited (RF) board of directors on 17 March 2016.

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements
do not include all the disclosure required for complete
annual financial statements prepared in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued
by the International Accounting Standards Board.

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements
have been prepared in accordance with the historic cost
convention except that certain items, including available-
for-sale financial assets, are stated at fair value.

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements
are presented in South African rand, which is Sasol Inzalo
Public Limited (RF)'s functional and presentation currency.

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements
appearing in this announcement are the responsibility of
the directors. The directors take full responsibility for the
preparation of the condensed consolidated interim financial
statements.

Dashni Sinivasan, CA(SA), Senior Manager Finance at Sasol
South Africa Proprietary Limited, is responsible for this set
of condensed consolidated interim financial statements
and has supervised the preparation thereof in conjunction
with Loyd Matsilele, Manager Finance at Sasol South Africa
Proprietary Limited.

Accounting policies
The accounting policies applied in the preparation of these
condensed consolidated interim financial statements are
in terms of IFRS and are consistent with those applied in
the consolidated annual financial statements for the year
ended 30 June 2015.

Going concern
The group incurred a net loss of R50 million for the period
ended 31 December 2015 and, as of that date, the group's
total liabilities exceed its total assets by R600 million.
Due to the structure of the BEE transaction, the group is
regarded as a going concern despite the negative equity
position. Any shortfall between the value of the investment
in Sasol Limited and the outstanding C preference share
debt value at the end of the transaction will be settled
directly by Sasol Limited in terms of the guarantee issued
to the lenders. We expect that sufficient cash will be
generated out of dividends received from Sasol Limited to
pay for the operating expenses as well as dividends. The
directors have made an assessment of the group's ability
to continue as a going concern and there is no reason to
believe the business will not be a going concern in the year
ahead.

Related party transactions
The group, in the ordinary course of business, entered into
various transactions on an arm's length basis at market
rates with its related party.

Significant financial instruments
Fair value
Valuation techniques and assumptions utilised for the
purpose of calculating fair value

Fair value is determined using valuation techniques as
outlined below. Where possible, inputs are based on quoted
prices and other market determined variables.

Fair value hierarchy
The following table is provided representing the significant
financial instruments measured at fair value at reporting
date, or for which fair value is disclosed at 31 December
2015. The calculation of fair value requires various inputs
into the valuation methodologies used. The source of
the inputs used affects the reliability and accuracy of the
valuations. Significant inputs have been classified into the
hierarchical levels in line with IFRS 13, as shown below:

Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical
        assets or liabilities.
Level 2 Inputs other than quoted prices that are
        observable for the asset or liability (directly or
        indirectly).

Independent auditor's report on the condensed
consolidate interim financial statements

To the Shareholders of Sasol Inzalo Public Limited (RF)
We have reviewed the condensed consolidated interim
financial statements of Sasol Inzalo Public Limited (RF)
in the accompanying interim financial results, which
comprise the condensed consolidated statement
of financial position as at 31 December 2015 and the
related condensed consolidated income statement and
statements of comprehensive income, changes in equity
and cash flows for the six months then ended, and selected
explanatory notes. 

Directors' responsibility for the interim
financial statements
The directors are responsible for the preparation and
presentation of these interim financial statements in
accordance with the International Financial Reporting
Standard, IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, the SAICA
Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting
Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements as
issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council and
the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa,
and for such internal control as the directors determine
is necessary to enable the preparation of interim financial
statements that are free from material misstatement,
whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor's responsibility
Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these
interim financial statements. We conducted our review
in accordance with International Standard on Review
Engagements 2410, Review of Interim Financial Information
Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity.
ISRE 2410 requires us to conclude whether anything has
come to our attention that causes us to believe that the
interim financial statements are not prepared in all material
respects in accordance with the applicable financial
reporting framework. This standard also requires us to
comply with relevant ethical requirements.

A review of interim financial statements in accordance with
ISRE 2410 is a limited assurance engagement. We perform
procedures, primarily consisting of making inquiries of
management and others within the entity, as appropriate,
and applying analytical procedures, and evaluate the
evidence obtained.

The procedures in a review are substantially less than
and differ in nature from those performed in an audit
conducted in accordance with International Standards on
Auditing. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion
on these interim financial statements.

Emphasis of matter
Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to
page 3 to the interim financial statements which indicates
that the group incurred a net loss of R50 million for the
six months ended 31 December 2015 and, as at that date,
the group's total liabilities exceeded its total assets by
R600 million, rendering the company technically insolvent.
Page 3 also details plans in place by management to ensure
that the company is able to continue as a going concern in
the foreseeable future.

Conclusion
Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention
that causes us to believe that the accompanying condensed
consolidated interim financial statements of Sasol Inzalo
Public Limited (RF) for the six months ended 31 December
2015 are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance
with the International Financial Reporting Standard,
IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, the SAICA Financial
Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices
Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the
Financial Reporting Standards Council and the requirements
of the Companies Act of South Africa.
