SACOIL HOLDINGS LIMITED - Potential Acquisition and Cautionary Announcement

Release Date: 27/07/2017 11:32:00      Code(s): SCL     
SacOil Holdings Limited
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)
(Registration number: 1993/000460/06)
JSE Share Code: SCL
SacOil Holdings Limited (?SacOil? or the ?Company?)



SacOil, the South African based independent African oil and
gas company, announces that it is in negotiations on an
exclusive basis to acquire a South African fuels wholesaler
(the ?Proposed Acquisition?), that sells fuel products, namely
diesel, petrol and paraffin, on a bulk basis to its customers
operating within industrial markets. The Proposed Acquisition
owns and operates a substantial fleet of heavy duty tankers.
The Board of SacOil believes that the Proposed Acquisition is
fully in keeping with the Company?s stated strategy of
focussing on cash generating opportunities across the oil and
gas value chain and will also significantly increase the
volumes of petroleum products sold by the SacOil group of
companies, whilst providing the opportunity to achieve
economies of scale with the recently acquired Afric Oil
business. The integration of the Afric Oil business is
progressing well and management will provide further details
as part of an operational update to be issued before 31 August

If concluded, the Proposed Acquisition would materially impact
SacOil?s turnover and provide the Company with additional
market share in the downstream oil and gas wholesale market
which complements its existing upstream assets such as the
producing Lagia field in Egypt.

Paragraph 3.9 of the JSE Listings Requirement ? Cautionary

In terms of paragraph 3.9 of the JSE Listings Requirements,
immediately after an issuer acquires knowledge of any material
price sensitive information and the necessary degree of
confidentiality of such information cannot be maintained, an
issuer must publish a cautionary announcement.

As such, shareholders are advised that the Proposed
Acquisition, if successfully concluded, may have a material
effect on the price of the Company?s securities. There can be
no guarantee however that the Proposed Acquisition will be
concluded and further updates will be provided in due course.

Accordingly, shareholders are advised to exercise caution when
dealing in the Company?s securities until a full announcement
is made.
