(Official Notice)
As previously reported, the South African Revenue Service ("SARS") issued revised assessments for Sasol Oil (Pty) Ltd. ("Sasol Oil") relating to a dispute around its international crude oil procurement activities for the 2005 to 2014 tax years. The litigation in the Tax Court, relating to the international crude oil procurement activities for the 2005 to 2007 years of assessment, was concluded and judgement was delivered in favour of SARS on 30 June 2017. Sasol Oil made a provision in its 2018 annual financial statements of R1.3 billion, including penalties and interest, which covers the 2005 to 2014 tax years relating to the tax assessment ground to which this litigation is related.



Sasol Oil filed an appeal against the judgment by the Tax Court with the Supreme Court of Appeal. Today the Supreme Court of Appeal decided to uphold the appeal and to set aside the ruling by the Tax Court. The Court effectively confirmed Sasol Oil?s view that the ground for additional taxation of Sasol Oil?s international crude oil procurement activities has not been fulfilled.



On the basis of this judgement, Sasol Oil will reverse the accrual of R1.3 billion.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are reminded that at a general meeting held on 17 November 2017, shareholders authorised Sasol, by way of a specific authority, to repurchase all or some of the Sasol preferred ordinary shares (?Preferred Ordinary Shares?) held by Inzalo Public FundCo at the 30 day volume weighted average price (?VWAP?) of a Sasol ordinary share (?SOL Share?) on the business day immediately prior to the date of repurchase of the Preferred Ordinary Shares.



Sasol repurchased 16 085 199 Preferred Ordinary Shares, being all the Preferred Ordinary Shares from Inzalo Public FundCo. The 30 day VWAP of a SOL Share on 6 September 2018 was R542,11. Sasol therefore paid R8 720 million for such Preferred Ordinary Shares. The 16 085 199 Preferred Ordinary Shares were cancelled upon repurchase in accordance with section 35(5) of the Companies Act 2008, as amended, and have the same status as authorised but unissued shares.



The proceeds of the repurchase of the Preferred Ordinary Shares were sufficient to discharge in full the preference share funding obligations of Inzalo Public FundCo. The guarantee which Sasol gave to the holders of Class C preference shares has therefore ceased to have any effect.



The financial effect of the repurchase on Sasol?s earnings per share, headline earnings per share, net asset value per share and net tangible asset value per share will be confined to the legal fees, the taxes levied by the South African Revenue Services and the JSE documentation fee which are considered negligible. The repurchase of the Preferred Ordinary Shares has been funded out of available cash and credit facilities.

Announcement regarding repurchase of preferred ordinary shares from Sasol Inzalo Groups Funding (Pty) Ltd (RF) (?Inzalo Groups Funding?)

1.Shareholders are reminded that at a general meeting held on 17 November 2017, Sasol shareholders authorised the Company, by way of a specific authority, to repurchase all or some of the unlisted Sasol preferred ordinary shares (?Preferred Ordinary Shares?) held by Inzalo Groups Funding at the 30-day volume weighted average price (?VWAP?) of a Sasol ordinary share of no par value (?SOL Share?) on the business day immediately prior to the date of the repurchase since the Preferred Ordinary Shares would have, had they not been repurchased today, redesignated as SOL Shares on Wednesday, 27 June 2018.

2.The 30-day VWAP of a SOL Share on 25 June 2018 was R475,03.

3.Sasol today repurchased 9 461 882 Preferred Ordinary Shares from Inzalo Groups Funding for a purchase price of R475,03 per Preferred Ordinary Share (?the Repurchase?).

4.After deducting the proceeds of the Repurchase of the Preferred Ordinary Shares from the aggregate amount outstanding in respect of the preference shares issued by Inzalo Groups Funding, the preference share funding shortfall remaining due as regards the Class C preference shares (together with costs and taxes) is R59,42 million. On 27 June 2018, Sasol will subscribe for 1 ordinary share in Inzalo Groups Funding for an amount of R59,42 million, so as to place Inzalo Groups Funding in funds to settle the Class C preference share funding shortfall and any applicable costs and taxes. By doing so, Sasol ensures that the guarantee which it gave to the holders of Class C preference shares in Inzalo Groups Funding will not be called up.

5.The financial effect of the Repurchase on Sasol?s earnings per share, headline earnings per share and net asset value per share will be limited to the legal fees, the taxes levied by the South African Revenue Services and the JSE documentation fee, which are considered negligible. The Repurchase will be funded from Sasol?s available cash resources.

05-Jun-2018
(Official Notice)
1. Resolutions in relation to the treatment of the Sasol ordinary shares (SOL Shares) held by the Inzalo Employee Schemes at the end of these schemes were passed at a general meeting of ordinary shareholders of Sasol held on 16 May 2008. In accordance with these resolutions and depending on the SOL Share price prior to the end of the Inzalo Employee Schemes on 4 June 2018, Sasol was entitled to repurchase some or all of the SOL Shares held by the Inzalo Employee Scheme trusts in accordance with the provisions of the Inzalo Employee Scheme trust deeds. The Inzalo Employee Scheme trusts together held 25 231 686 SOL Shares.



2. Sasol exercised its rights of repurchase under the Inzalo Employee Schemes trust deeds on 4 June 2018 by repurchasing 25 231 686 SOL Shares from the Inzalo Employee Schemes, at a nominal value of R0,01 per share (the Specific Repurchase). Accordingly, the Inzalo Employee Schemes ceased to hold any SOL Shares and consequently the relevant vested participants in the Inzalo Employee Schemes will receive no distribution of SOL Shares.



3. The effect of the Specific Repurchase is that SOL Shares representing 3,9% of Sasol?s total issued share capital before the Specific Repurchase, have been cancelled and restored to Sasol?s authorised ordinary share capital with effect from 4 June 2018. After the cancellation, Sasol will have 623 066 479 SOL Shares in issue.



4. Sasol has applied for the delisting of the SOL Shares from the JSE with effect from Thursday, 07 June 2018. The acquisition will have no financial effect on Sasol or its shareholders, other than in respect of Specific Repurchase costs that are normally incurred in transactions of this nature. The financial effect of the Specific Repurchase on Sasol?s earnings per share, headline earnings per share, net asset value per share and net tangible asset value per share will be confined to the cost of the sponsor fee, the legal fees, the taxes levied by the South African Revenue Services and the JSE documentation fee which are considered negligible. The Specific Repurchase has been funded out of Sasol?s existing reserves resulting in a reduction of contributed tax capital.

Due to technical challenges beyond Sasol?s control, which might have prevented SOLBE1 shareholders wishing to exercise the Election Right from doing so, Sasol has agreed that SOLBE1 shareholders now have until 12:00 on Friday, 23 March 2018 to exercise the Election Right.

(Official Notice)
At the annual general meeting held on 17 November 2017, Sasol shareholders approved a specific authority to acquire 8 809 886 ordinary shares from its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sasol Investment Company (Pty) Ltd. (SIC) at Sasol?s closing ordinary share price on the business day prior to the approval of the repurchase by the Sasol board of directors (the Board) or its nominee (Specific Repurchase).



In accordance with the authority conferred on him by the Board, the Chief Financial Officer, after the Board concluded that Sasol satisfied the solvency and liquidity test as required in terms of the Listings Requirements of the JSE, sections 4 and 46 of the Companies Act, approved the Specific Repurchase of 8 809 886 ordinary shares from SIC at the closing price on 23 February 2018 of R394.50 per ordinary share effective, 26 February 2018.



The effect is that the shares have been cancelled and restored to Sasol?s authorised ordinary share capital as from today. No treasury shares will be in issue after the Specific Repurchase. Application will be made to the JSE for the delisting of the shares with effect from Monday, 5 March 2018. The acquisition will have no financial effect on Sasol or its shareholders, other than in respect of Specific Repurchase costs that are normally incurred in transactions of this nature. As the Specific Repurchase is intra-group, between Sasol and its wholly-owned subsidiary, SIC, the net cash position of the Sasol group will not change as a result of the acquisition (except for the payment of the transaction costs).



Consequently, the financial effect of the Specific Repurchase on Sasol?s earnings per share, headline earnings per share, net asset value per share and net tangible asset value per share will be confined to the cost of the sponsor fee, the legal fees, the taxes levied by the South African Revenue Services and the JSE documentation fee which are considered negligible. The Specific Repurchase will be funded out of Sasol?s existing reserves resulting in a reduction of contributed tax capital.

Sasol, the South African chemicals and energy company, has increased its existing USD1.5 billion Revolving Credit Facility (?the Facility?)to USD3.9 billion and extended the maturity to five years, with the inclusion of two further extension options of one year each (?the Transaction?).



Sasol launched the Transaction with a targeted facility size of USD3.0 billion, which was subsequently increased to USD3.9 billion, given the notable oversubscription.



Sasol mandated Citi and Mizuho Bank, Ltd. as Joint Global Co-ordinators for the Transaction, which launched in early November 2017 to a targeted group of banks. The Joint Global Co-ordinators each pre-committed to the Transaction, and invited banks to commit at one of three ticket levels, with the following titles: Bookrunner and Mandated Lead Arranger (BMLA), Mandated Lead Arranger (MLA) and Lead Arranger. The Company also accommodated a limited number of smaller tickets with the Arranger title.



Syndication closed oversubscribed with 17 banks committing, allowing Sasol to increase the Facility and offer scale back to the Joint Global Co- ordinators, BMLAs and the MLAs.



Along with the Joint Global Co-ordinators, there were eight other BMLAs: ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Bank of America Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas S.A. South Africa Branch, Intesa SanPaolo Bank Luxembourg S.A., J.P. Morgan Securities plc, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Europe Ltd. and UniCredit Bank Austria.



Barclays Bank PLC, Deutsche Bank and HSBC joined as MLAs, Export Development Canada and Standard Chartered Bank joined as Lead Arrangers and Wells Fargo Bank N.A., London Branch and Societe Generale joined as Arrangers.



EY acted as Independent Financial Advisor to Sasol in respect of the transaction.

Sasol publishes production and sales metrics for the nine months ended 31 March 2017 and an update on significant hedging activities



Sasol has published its production and sales performance metrics for the nine months ended 31 March 2017 on the company?s website at www.sasol.com, under the Investor Centre section or via this URL: www.sasol.com/investor-centre/financial-reporting/business- performance-metrics



During the course of the 2017 financial year, Sasol entered into a number of hedges to mitigate specific financial risks. In particular, Sasol has entered into hedges against the downside risk in the crude oil price and rand strengthening against major currencies to increase the stability and predictability of our cash flows. Information on these hedges is also included in the performance metrics.

11-Apr-2017
(Official Notice)
In December 2016, Sasol announced that it entered into crude oil put options, in terms of the company?s financial market risk policy, to mitigate specific risks and to provide protection against adverse movements in commodity and final product prices.



The company also stated that as part of its financial risk mitigation strategy it was reviewing other commodity and currency hedges to protect and strengthen the company?s balance sheet as measured in terms of its gearing and net debt to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (?EBITDA?) targeted levels. In its half-year to 31 December results published on 27 February 2017, Sasol announced that it had hedged approximately 12% of its Rand/US dollar exposure for specific periods in its 2018 financial year.



Sasol has completed the majority of its Rand/US dollar hedging programme for the 2018 financial year ending on 30 June 2018 using zero-cost collar instruments. Hedges with a total notional amount of USD4 billion (averaging USD1 billion per quarter) have been put into place, with an annual average floor of R13.46/USD, and an annual average cap of R15.51/USD. These levels approximate the quarterly averages.



These hedges approximate 70% of the company?s expected net Rand/US dollar exposure in the 2018 financial year. These hedges will provide Sasol with some cash flow and balance sheet protection, as gearing and net debt to EBITDA levels are expected to peak during the 2018 financial year. In addition, the financial risk mitigation strategy with reference to currency hedges is expected to partially mitigate the negative translation impact of valuing the balance sheet at each reporting date. The company continues to review financial market risks, and should additional material hedges be put into place, appropriate announcements will be made.

Sasol?s headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the financial year ending 30 June 2016 are expected to decrease by between 10% and 30% (approximating R4.98 to R14.93 per share) compared to the 2015 financial year (comparable period) HEPS of R49.76. Earnings per share (EPS) for the same period are expected to decrease by between 53% and 73% (approximating R25.82 to R35.56 per share) from the comparable period EPS of R48.71.



The volatile macroeconomic environment, in particular lower crude oil prices, has had a significant impact on earnings. EPS was further impacted by the R7.4 billion (CAD665 million) impairment of our share in the Montney shale gas asset recognised in December 2015. Due to a further decline of natural gas prices in North America, we will recognise an additional impairment of approximately R4.1 billion (CAD340 million), resulting in a total impairment of R11.5 billion. This impairment contributed to a 39% decrease of EPS.



Sasol expects production volumes and cost reductions to be better than their previous guidance. Further details on their operational and financial performance will be provided in a trading update in early August 2016. The current volatile market conditions may however further impact Sasol's results, particularly changes in oil, product prices and movements in the rand/dollar exchange rate.



Sasol's financial results for the financial year ending 30 June 2016 will be announced on Monday, 12 September 2016.

Cash dividend

A final gross cash dividend of South African 1 150 cents per ordinary share (2014: 1 350 cents per ordinary share) has been declared for the year ended 30 June 2015. The final cash dividend is payable on the ordinary shares and the Sasol BEE ordinary shares.



Profit outlook - solid production performance and cost reductions to continue

The global economic environment remains very volatile and uncertain with global economic growth expected to continue at a moderate and uneven pace over the near-term. Sasol expects oil prices to remain low until the end of the 2017 calendar year. The rand exchange rate is expected to be under pressure mainly as a result of the pace of interest rate increases in the US, as well as concerns regarding the South African economy and local growth rate. Foreign exchange and oil price movements are outside of Sasol's influence, hence the group focus remains firmly on factors within their control, which include volume growth, margin improvement, cost optimisation and cash conservation. In addition, oil and other commodity price risk hedging are continuously evaluated.

The portfolio changes will be effective from 1 March 2015 and are pursuant to Sasol?s announcement to further optimise its top management structure.



With the retirement of Mr E Oberholster, as Executive Vice President: Strategy, Development and Planning, and as part of the company?s ongoing drive to enhance its structures and business processes, Sasol has decided not to appoint a new Group Executive Committee (GEC) member to assume responsibility for Mr Oberholster?s portfolio. Instead, these accountabilities will be reallocated to current members of the GEC.



Given the reallocation:

* Ms Fakude will be directly accountable for the Strategy and Sustainability portfolio comprising the following Group functions: Strategy; Risk - Safety, Health and Environment; and Human Resources. Ms Fakude will relinquish the South Africa Shared Services and Public - Regulatory Affairs functions, which will be assumed by other members of the GEC.

* Mr Nqwababa will be directly accountable for the Finance portfolio, comprising the following Group functions: Financial Control; Corporate Finance, Business Development and Portfolio Management; Investor Relations and Information Management.



On 28 January 2015, Sasol confirmed that it is formulating a comprehensive plan to respond to the current low oil price environment. The further optimisation of its top management structure is an important step in the company?s response plan efforts, ensuring that the organisation is much more focused and cost-conscious.

? Normalised cash fixed costs continue to trend below inflation;

? 9% weaker average rand/US dollar exchange rate;

? Notable once-off charges prompted by volatile macro-economic factors, changes to the share price and decisive management actions:

Sasol hosted analysts and investors at its Westlake facility in Lake Charles, Louisiana on Monday, 2 February 2015.



On 27 October 2014, the company announced that it had taken a final investment decision to construct an USD8.1 billion ethane cracker and derivatives complex at its existing site in Lake Charles, Louisiana.



Once commissioned, this world-scale petrochemicals complex will roughly triple Sasol?s chemical production capacity in the United States, enabling Sasol to further strengthen its position in a growing global chemicals market. The U.S. Gulf Coast?s robust infrastructure for transporting and storing abundant, low-cost ethane was a key driver in the decision to invest in America.



Sasol announced that it is developing a comprehensive plan to respond to the current low oil price environment. At the same time, the company confirmed that the construction of the cracker and derivatives complex will continue.



Given the robust project economics, the Sasol team is confident that this facility is the first step in developing the Louisiana site into an integrated multi-asset, multi-business hub, which will enable future growth for several decades to come.



A supporting presentation and audio webcast will be available on the company?s website at http://www.sasol.com/investor- centre/presentations-and-speeches/us-site-visit and will begin at 10h30 (CST), 18h30 (SA), 16h30 (GMT).

Sasol announces that it is formulating a comprehensive plan to conserve cash in response to lower international oil prices.



While the detailed actions underpinning Sasol?s response plan are being refined, certain decisive measures have already been agreed to and are being implemented. These include identifying opportunities for additional cash savings targeted over the next 30 months. The focus areas are capital portfolio phasing and reductions, capital restructuring, working capital improvements, margin enhancement and further fixed cost reductions. Cash flow improvements actioned in terms of the response plan will be over and above the current target of at least R4 billion in sustainable cost savings by 2016, which was confirmed last year as part of Sasol?s business performance enhancement programme.



As a result of the ongoing capital investment reprioritisation exercise, Sasol has decided to delay the final investment decision on its large-scale, gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant in Louisiana. The timing of the decision will take into consideration progress made with the execution of the Company?s world-scale ethane cracker and derivatives complex, prevailing market conditions and other strategic investment opportunities.



Sasol is proceeding with the construction of the ethane cracker and derivatives complex in Louisiana. Given the robust project economics, the Sasol team is confident that this facility is the first step in developing the site near Lake Charles into an integrated multi-asset, multi-business hub, which will enable future growth for several decades to come.



In parallel, Sasol will also continue to advance its investments in Southern Africa, including the mine replacement programme and various gas and chemicals projects.



As the Sasol team finalises the details of its response plan, an update on the actions being undertaken will be provided when results are announced for the first half of the 2015 financial year on 9 March 2015.

Sasol announces final investment decision on world-scale ethane cracker and derivatives complex in Louisiana



Today, Sasol announced the final approval of an US$8.1 billion ethane cracker and derivatives complex at its existing site in Lake Charles, Louisiana.



At the heart of the project is an ethane cracker that will produce 1.5 million tons of ethylene annually, benefiting from significant economies of scale. The complex also includes six chemical manufacturing plants. Approximately 90 percent of the cracker?s ethylene output will be converted into a diverse slate of commodity and high-margin specialty chemicals for markets in which Sasol has a strong position, underpinned by collaborative customer relationships.



Sasol has selected Fluor Technip Integrated, a joint venture of two world-class firms, as the primary engineering, procurement, and construction management contractor for this project. Sasol's project management team is also supported by WorleyParsons, who bring with them significant mega-project experience.



An additional US$800 million will be invested in infrastructure and utility improvements, as well as land acquisition, to establish the Lake Charles location as an integrated, multi-asset site that will enable growth for decades to come.



Sasol is well-advanced in raising the funds required for construction and will utilise a variety of international U.S. dollar-based sources. Site preparation is underway, and the company expects that the facility will achieve beneficial operation in 2018.

In October 2008, the European Commission imposed a fine of EUR 318.2 million on Sasol Wax GmbH and other Sasol group companies, including Sasol for Sasol Wax's involvement in the European paraffin wax cartel. The fine was paid in full by Sasol in January 2009. Sasol viewed the fine as excessive and, in December 2008, applied to the European General Court in Luxemburg for a reduction of the fine. Today, the European General Court reduced the fine by an amount of EUR 168.22 million to EUR 149.98 million. The European Commission has the right to appeal the decision.



In 1995, Sasol became a co-shareholder in an existing wax business located in Hamburg, Germany, owned by the Sch?mann group. In July 2002, Sasol acquired the remaining shares in the joint venture and became the sole shareholder of the business. Sasol was unaware of any cartel activities, before the European Commission commenced its investigation into the European paraffin wax industry in April 2005.



Sasol will account for this as a post balance sheet adjusting event. The effect of the reduced fine will be accounted for in Sasol's FY14 income statement.

Prospects

Economic recovery in the global environment is expected to remain fragile and unbalanced. The European debt crisis has continued, weakening demand in that region. Coupled with the Chinese slowing growth, the announcement of the gradual withdrawal of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve in the US, increased the risks of global economic recovery. Global economic growth is expected to remain modest in light of the uncertainties in the European and US markets in particular. Crude oil prices are expected to remain stable over the near term. Product prices are expected to remain volatile. The rand/US dollar exchange rate remains one of the biggest external factors impacting our profitability.

In a trading statement released on 23 November 2011, Sasol advised shareholders that earnings per share (EPS) and headline earnings per share (HEPS) of the group for the six months ended 31 December 2011 were estimated to increase by at least 45% compared to the prior comparable period. As previously stated, the expected increase in earnings was mainly due to solid operational performance in our businesses, coupled with a strong improvement in the average crude oil and product prices and a weaker rand/US dollar exchange rate. In addition, the results have been positively impacted by exchange gains on foreign exchange contracts. It was also highlighted that the results may be impacted by further changes in oil and product prices, volume variances, the impact of closing exchange rates on financial assets and liabilities, as well as any adjustments, including possible impairments, resulting from our half year- end closure process.



Sasol is now able to indicate that the increase in EPS and HEPS for the six months ended 31 December 2011 is expected to be between 80% and 90% compared to the prior comparable period. Our half-year closure process is currently in progress and further adjustments may arise including re-measurement effects. As previously stated, this trading statement only deals with the comparison to the first half of the 2011 financial year. The higher earnings base of the second half of the 2011 financial year will strongly influence a comparison of the full 2012 financial year's results with 2011. Guidance will be provided when there is a reasonable degree of certainty in this regard. Sasol's financial results for the six months ended 31 December 2011 will be announced on Monday, 12 March 2012.

In the update from the chief financial officer released on 14 June 2011, Sasol stated that they were confident of achieving an overall solid operational performance and containing cost increases to within inflationary levels for the 2011 financial year. At the time the volatility and uncertainty of global markets, as well as any adjustments arising from our year end closure process, made it difficult to be more precise in the profit outlook statement. Sasol's profitability for the financial year ended 30 June 2011 has improved due to the sustained focus on factors within their control - such as enhancing operational efficiencies, delivering on business improvement plans and strict cost management. In addition, robust global commodity prices have countered the impact of the strong rand. The group remains a strong cash generator and maintains a solid financial position.



Shareholders were accordingly advised that Sasol's headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the year ended 30 June 2011 were expected to increase by between 22% and 32%, and earnings per share (EPS) for the year ended 30 June 2011 are expected to increase by between 18% and 28%, compared to the previous financial year. The results may be further affected by any adjustments resulting from our year- end process. This may result in a change in the estimated earnings. Sasol's financial results for the year ended 30 June 2011 will be announced on Monday, 12 September 2011.

Recent media reports emanating from an interview with a managing director of a Sasol subsidiary, Sasol Synfuels, may have created certain impressions which may have been misleading. We will not respond to the reports in their entirety, but wish to provide context to some of the statements made. The reports state that Sasol expects to produce 7.3 million tons of product at Sasol Synfuels for the 2012 financial year. In fact, 7.3 million tons refers to the Sasol Synfuels baseline production capacity. Sasol Synfuels` growth programme will improve volumes from this baseline. Sasol Synfuels has a growth plan in place and we are focusing on implementing this programme, as opposed to developing a new growth plan. Our growth plans remain on track. The strike that is currently underway has had a negligible impact on the growth programme. Production at the plant has already been ramped up and we continue to monitor the situation.

The zero cost collars expire on 15 June 2011. The hedge will provide downside protection should monthly average dated Brent crude oil prices decrease below USD85 per barrel (put level) on the hedged portion of production. Conversely, Sasol will incur opportunity losses on the hedged portion of production should monthly average oil prices exceed a volume weighted average USD172.77 per barrel (call level). Call levels between USD170 per barrel and USD175 per barrel were entered into. Sasol assesses the appropriateness of oil price hedging continuously and periodically enters into hedging transactions to improve the stability and predictability of cash flows as part of its risk management activities.

According to Business Day, controversy around the exploration for shale gas done little to dampen Sasol's aspirations in that area, with CEO Pat Davies saying that the group was on the lookout for more gas acquisitions. Mr Davies commented that shale gas was the "game changer" in the US energy landscape. "The unanticipated success of shale gas in the US has completely changed North American gas market dynamics." He said horizontal drilling, which is used in shale gas exploration, has been on the increase in North America. Sasol stands to reap huge financial rewards from the pursuit of natural gas because of the gap between the prices of gas and oil.

Dividend

An interim cash dividend of R3.10 per ordinary share (2009: R2.80 per share) has been declared for the six months ended 31 December 2010.



Outlook

Signs of recovery have been seen in some developed economies, albeit at a sluggish pace, and downside risks remain. Financial stability experienced a setback as market volatility increased and investor confidence decreased, especially in the European markets with the selling off of sovereign debt. However product prices and the demand for chemical products have shown significant improvement. Crude oil prices have been increasing steadily supported by geopolitics in the Middle East/North Africa and growing risks to supply, offsetting the negative impact of the rand/US dollar exchange rate. The further strengthening of the rand/US dollar exchange rate remains the single biggest external factor exerting pressure on our profitability. The group remains on track to deliver on expectations for an improved operational performance and to contain cost increases to within inflationary levels for the full year. The group anticipates that Sasol Synfuels' production volumes will be marginally lower than that of the previous year, taking into account the major planned maintenance outage which was undertaken in September 2010. We expect to maintain Oryx GTL and Arya Sasol Polymer company's operating rates for the full year. However, in light of the continuing uncertain macro economic conditions and our assumptions in respect of improved crude oil and product prices, weaker refining margins as well as the stronger rand/US dollar exchange rate, the group's focus remains on factors within its control: volume growth, margin improvement and cost containment. The current volatility and uncertainty of global markets makes it difficult to be more precise in this outlook statement.

The Competition Tribunal ("the Tribunal") announced that, in terms of a consent order granted on 24 February 2011, it has confirmed the settlement agreement ("the Settlement Agreement") reached between the Competition Commission ("the Commission") and Sasol Polymers, a division of Sasol Chemical Industries Ltd.



The Settlement Agreement related to Sasol Polymers' existing propylene supply contract with Safripol ("the Supply Agreement"). On 12 August 2010, the Commission referred a complaint to the Tribunal, in which it contended that the pricing provisions of the Supply Agreement gave raise to indirect price fixing between Sasol Polymers and Safripol. The pricing provisions were, however, inserted into the Supply Agreement with the knowledge of the then Competition Board in relation to the proposed merger, in 1993, of the monomer, polymer and certain other chemicals operations of Sasol and AECI Ltd.



In Sasol Polymers' view, any contravention of the Competition Act (Act 89 of 1998), as amended, (the "Act") as a result of the Supply Agreement has its origins in these pricing provisions rather than any intention to contravene the Act. Given the uncertainty surrounding the legal position in relation to the pricing formula and the interpretation of section 4(1)(b) of the Act, it was considered prudent to settle with the Commission by accepting that the Supply Agreement gave rise to indirect price-fixing.



As communicated in our press release on the 14th of December 2010, in terms of this Settlement Agreement, Sasol Polymers has agreed to pay a penalty of R111 690 000, which was subject to confirmation by the Tribunal, in full and final settlement of the Commission's allegations that the pricing formula gave rise to indirect price fixing.



Sasol Polymers and Safripol have also reached agreement on the key terms that are to govern the future monomer supply relationship between the parties, which we consider to be fully compliant from a competition law perspective.

Product prices have remained quite resilient with higher oil prices, refining margins and chemical prices being realised. Although the relatively strong rand has put pressure on the group`s earnings, the year-on-year improvement in product prices has largely mitigated this negative effect. The sustained strength of the currency remains a key challenge to the group although there has recently been a slight weakening. We are therefore maintaining our focus on the factors within our control, such as cost management and operational efficiency. As announced in December 2010, Sasol has made a significant investment in upstream shale gas resources in support of its gas-to-liquids (GTL) value proposition in North America.



Expected earnings for the six months ended 31 December 2010

Sasol's earnings per share and headline earnings per share for the six months ended 31 December 2010 are estimated to increase by 17% - 27% compared with the prior year comparable reporting period. The expected increase in earnings is mainly due to a strong focus on cost containment as well as an improvement in crude oil prices and product prices, partially offset by the continued strength of the rand against the US dollar. The Ixia empowerment transaction announced last year resulted in WIPCoal Investments owning effectively 10,2% of the equity in Sasol Mining. The once- off non-cash share based payment expense relating to the transaction resulted in an impact of approximately R1 on both headline earnings per share and earnings per share.

Our half-year closure process is currently in progress and further adjustments may arise including remeasurement effects. This trading update deals only with the first half of the 2011 financial year comparison. Sasol's financial results for the six months ended 31 December 2010 will be announced on or about Monday, 7 March 2011. The above information has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's external auditors.

Business Day reported that Sasol said it would defend itself against new allegations from the Competition Commission of collusion and excessive pricing in its chemicals division. If found guilty, the petrochemicals giant could face another record-breaking fine, this time R4.4 billion. The commission had referred the complaints, relating to collusion in the polymer market, to the Competition tribunal for its adjudication. According to the commission it had been investigating Sasol and Safripol since 2007. Safripol agreed to pay a penalty of R16.5 million after it admitted to colluding with Sasol to fix prices. The investigation followed concerns raised by the Department of Trade and Industry about polymer pricing and its negative effect on growth and employment in the manufacturing sector.

In Sasol's public disclosures we have reported on a business segment basis and have not provided the turnover of SCI as a legal entity. The turnover of SCI excluding transfers to the Sasol group for the 2009 fiscal year was R22.13 billion. In our previous announcement we have indicated that at this time there is no reasonable certainty as to whether or not SCI will be found to have contravened competition laws as alleged, whether a penalty will be imposed and the quantum thereof if imposed.

As previously disclosed by Sasol as part of its ongoing disclosures, the South African Competition Commission has been investigating the South African polymers industry. The competition commission announced today, 12 August 2010 that it has referred its findings to the competition tribunal for adjudication. In its announcement the competition commission stated that it has referred complaints of collusion and excessive pricing in the polymers market against Sasol Chemical Industries Ltd (SCI) and Safripol (Pty) Ltd (Safripol) to the competition tribunal for adjudication. It also announced that it has simultaneously reached a settlement with Safripol in which Safripol admits that the supply agreement between SCI and Safripol and its implementation amounted to price fixing in contravention of the Competition Act. The competition commission has indicated that it is seeking an administrative penalty of 10% of SCI's annual turnover for each of these alleged contraventions. The competition commission's allegation of collusion relates to an agreement of the Sasol polymers division of SCI with Safripol, which was structured at the behest of the former competition board following the formation of Polifin (the Sasol / AECI joint venture) in 1994. The agreement was structured to ensure Safripol's ongoing access to propylene supply at a market-related price. South African propylene and polypropylene prices are comparable to international prices and hence Sasol believes that there is no legitimate basis for the competition commission's excessive pricing allegations. Sasol Polymers has been liasing with the competition commission in its investigation. SCI has not yet received the referral mentioned in the competition commission's announcement. Given SCI's interactions with the competition commission and knowledge of this matter, SCI does not believe that it has breached any competition laws. Accordingly, at this time, there is no reasonable certainty as to whether or not SCI will be found to have contravened competition laws as alleged, whether a penalty will be imposed and the quantum thereof. SCI intends defending the matter before the competition tribunal should an amicable resolution of the matter not be achieved.

The competition commission referred complaints of collusion and excessive pricing in the polymers market against Sasol Chemical Industries Ltd ("Sasol") and Safripol (Pty) Ltd to the tribunal for adjudication. Simultaneously, it also reached a settlement with Safripol in which it admits that the supply agreement between Sasol and Safripol and its implementation amounted to price fixing in contravention of the Act. Safripol agreed to pay a penalty of R16.5 million which represents 1.5% of its total annual turnover derived from polypropylene products.



The commission initiated the investigation in 2007 following concerns raised by the department of trade and industry ("dti") about polymer pricing and its negative effect on diversified growth and employment in manufacturing. The commission found that Sasol had charged excessive prices for polypropylene and propylene to its local customers in line with import parity pricing. Further, that Sasol and Safripol engaged in collusive conduct as a result of the implementation of the supply agreement including the operation of the pricing formula and the exchange of information relating to the pricing of polypropylene. Sasol is the dominant supplier of propylene, for its own use and that of Safripol. It is also the major supplier of polypropylene to the South African market along with Safripol. The commission found that South Africa is also a major exporter of polypropylene reflecting its competitive position in this product. One would therefore have expected pricing to local customers to be on the same basis as export prices, however, this is not the case. Polypropylene, a plastics polymer is used by plastics converters to manufacture a wide range of products. The competitiveness of local manufacturers in these relatively labour intensive activities depends on competitively priced polypropylene input.

An overall improvement in market conditions, higher production volumes and cost containment have benefited earnings for the financial year ended 30 June 2010. Shareholders were advised that headline earnings per share ("HEPS") for the year ended 30 June 2010 are expected to increase by 0% to 8%, and earnings per share ("EPS") are expected to increase by 12% to 20% compared to the previous financial year. The difference between HEPS and EPS is attributable to the impact of re- measurement items relating to the EGTL project in Nigeria and other impairments which were included in the prior financial year. Shareholders should also note the impact of significant once off items included in the prior financial year as reflected in the 2009 annual financial statements. The group remains strongly cash generative and maintains a healthy balance sheet. Sasol's financial results for the year ended 30 June 2010 will be announced on Monday, 13 September 2010.

The Competition Tribunal confirmed the settlement agreement between Sasol Nitro and Competition Commission Subsequent to the confirmation hearing held on 14 July 2010, the Competition Tribunal confirmed the settlement agreement between the Competition Commission of South Africa and Sasol Nitro, a division of Sasol Chemical Industries Ltd, relating to allegations of abuse of dominance in its fertiliser businesses. In terms of the confirmed settlement Sasol Nitro will restructure its fertiliser business as outlined in the announcement of the settlement agreement of 5 July 2010. No finding was made relating to abuse of dominance and accordingly no administrative penalty was sought. Nevertheless, Sasol believes the restructuring will address the Commission's concerns regarding its position within the nitrogen based fertiliser value chain.



Sasol Nitro will withdraw from certain downstream activities with increased focus on the core activities of its fertiliser business. The confirmed settlement agreement has the effect of a full and final settlement of the alleged contraventions of excessive pricing and exclusionary practices, which are the subject of the Nutri-Flo and Profert referrals. The confirmed settlement agreement, together with the changes to the Sasol Nitro business, will not have a material adverse financial impact on the Sasol Group.

Sasol announced that operating profit has further improved in the third quarter of this financial year. Higher realised product prices and improved production volumes have contributed to healthy cash generation supporting the strength of our balance sheet. The board of directors' (the board) approval of a progressive dividend policy demonstrates our confidence in the value that Sasol consistently delivers. The focus remains on improving total shareholder return and a progressive dividend policy is complementary to the group's approach to delivering value for shareholders over time. Growth plans remain on track. Recent technology developments in the cost-effective extraction of shale gas, and resulting lower global gas prices, present a significant opportunity for the expansion of Gas-to-liquids (GTL) value proposition. Sasol is well positioned to deliver solid financial and operational results for the full financial year.



Product prices continue to rise

Despite the recent volatility experienced in currency and commodity markets, third quarter average dated Brent prices of USD77/bbl at an average exchange rate of R7.50/US$1 supported a 3% increase in domestic fuel prices compared with the first half of this financial year. Chemical product margins also improved significantly with international polymer and solvent commodity prices increasing between 12% and 14%, respectively, in dollar terms from first half levels. The group's near-term expectation is that crude prices should bottom out at around the USD70/bbl range. The continued restraint in production from OPEC and improving global economic fundamentals should support future prices in a range of approximately USD75- USD85/bbl. The greatest risk to Sasol's oil price forecast remains a protracted global recession. Whilst all indications are that the global economy is showing signs of improvement, macroeconomic concerns in some European countries highlight the fragility of this economic recovery.

Business Day highlighted that Sasol, the world's largest fuel from coal producer, announced that it will construct a new plant in Germany. The group said it would construct a purified tri-ethyl aluminium production unit at its Sasol Olefins and Surfactants plant in Brunsbuttel. The group said the unit would enable Sasol to further benefit from its existing strong position in the production and captive supply of tri-ethyl aluminium. The new plant will also use a small portion of available Ziegler plant resources, opening the way for the group to develop additional capacity as the market demands.

At the onset of the global economic crisis, Sasol made the decision to conserve cash and strengthen its balance sheet. Following a substantial drop in earnings in the 2009 financial year and a bleak, uncertain economic outlook, the group decided to reduce the 2009 dividend in line with the reduction in earnings. Taking into consideration overall improved market and economic conditions, the strength of its balance sheet and current capital investment plans, the group has decided to resume an approach consistent with its long-term track record of dividend growth as a key component of adding shareholder value. As a result the board of directors ("the Board") has decided to adopt a progressive dividend policy, as stated below:

It is Sasol's intention to maintain and/or grow dividends over time in line with the group's anticipated sustainable growth in earnings, barring significant economic variables such as fluctuations in the oil price and exchange rates. When deciding on dividends, the board will also take into consideration several factors including the prevailing circumstances of the company, future investment plans, financial performance and the trading and macro economic environments. Sasol Chief Executive Pat Davies highlighted the group's focus on total shareholder return and its progressive dividend policy as complementary to Sasol's approach to building value for shareholders over time.

Turnover declined by R58.1 billion (R83.1 billion). Gross profit decreased by R20.5 billion (R32.4 billion) and operating profit more than halved to R10.5 billion (R21.5 billion). Net attributable profit was also down by more than 50% to R6.3 billion (R13.2 billion). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis fell to 1 067cps (2 192cps).



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 280cps has been declared.



Outlook

There has been some stability in global chemical markets and it is anticipated that this will continue in the second half of the year. Although the current levels of chemical product demand and product prices currently lag behind crude oil prices, the strength of the rand/US dollar exchange rate remains the single biggest external factor exerting pressure on profitability. Crude oil prices have increased from the lows of a year ago and have remained stable in the USD70-80 per barrel range.



Sasol is anticipating some improvement in overall production volumes for the full year. Taking into account, however, the continuing challenging economic conditions and our assumptions in respect of crude oil and product prices, tight refining margins as well as the stronger rand/US dollar exchange rate, the group remains cautious in its outlook for the full year compared with 2009. The current volatility and uncertainty of global markets makes it difficult to be more precise in this outlook statement. The board has decided to increase the interim dividend given the signals of recovery seen in the global economy and the proactive measures taken by management in response to the global economic crisis. Focus remains on the company's growth strategy in the interest of the preservation of long-term shareholder value. Sasol expects to maintain dividend policy within the targeted range of 2.5 times to 3.5 times annual earnings cover for the full year dividend.

The Commission refers its price fixing findings against major oil companies The Competition Commission today referred to the Tribunal its findings of price fixing in the supply of bitumen against Chevron SA (Pty) Ltd ("Chevron"), Engen Ltd ("Engen"), Shell SA (Pty) Ltd ("Shell"), Total SA (Pty) Ltd ("Total"), Masana Petroleum Solution (Pty) Ltd ("Masana"), Southern African Bitumen Association ("SABITA"), Sasol Ltd ("Sasol") and Tosas (Pty) Ltd ("Tosas"), to the Tribunal for adjudication. Bitumen is a residual fraction of crude oil. Bitumen and modified bitumen products are mainly used in road construction to tar and rehabilitate roads, which is mainly sold to government entities.



The Commission initiated this investigation on 12 January 2009, following an application for leniency by Sasol and its subsidiary Tosas. In its application Sasol admitted that together with its subsidiary, Tosas, it had colluded with its competitors and was granted conditional immunity from prosecution provided it cooperates with the Commission in its investigation and prosecution. The Commission has asked the Tribunal to impose an administrative penalty of 10% on each of the firms involved, except for Sasol and Tosas. Settlement terms have been agreed in principle with Masana whereby it (Masana) admits guilt and will pay an administrative penalty of R13 million. The settlement agreement will be referred to the Tribunal for confirmation shortly. In its investigation the Commission found that the respondents engaged in collusive conduct from around 2000 until at least December 2009. The respondents collectively determined and agreed on pricing principles, including a starting reference price and monthly price adjustment mechanism. This was facilitated through meetings convened by SABITA, as well as through correspondence through SABITA and direct communication between oil companies. The conduct resulted in final customers being charged prices which were not competitively determined.

Sasol confirms expected range of earnings per share for the six months ended 31 December 2009 In a trading statement released on 3 December 2009, Sasol advised shareholders that earnings per share ("EPS") and headline earnings per share ("HEPS") of the group for the six months ended 31 December 2009 were expected to decrease by at least 45% compared to the prior comparable period. As previously stated, HEPS for the first half of the 2009 financial year were at a record high. It was reported that the expected decrease in earnings was mainly due to the significant strengthening of the rand against the US dollar and a decrease in average crude oil and product prices compared to the corresponding six months of the previous reporting period.



In addition, the average oil price achieved during the prior year comparable period was positively impacted by the effect of oil hedges which resulted in a net gain of approximately R5 billion. It was also highlighted that the results may be further impacted by the potential change in volume variances and the impact of a stronger rand on closing financial assets and liabilities, as well as any adjustments resulting from the half year-end closure process. Volatile market conditions, at the time, precluded the group from providing a more precise indication of the range of the earnings decline expected.



Following completion of the half-year closure process, Sasol is now able to indicate that the reduction in EPS and HEPS is expected to be between 50% and 55%. It is emphasised that, as per our previous statement, this trading update deals only with the first half of the 2009 financial year comparison. The very low earnings base of the second half of the 2009 financial year will strongly influence a comparison of the full 2010 financial year's results with 2009 and guidance in this regard will be given in due course. The above information has not been reviewed or reported on by the company's external auditors. Sasol's interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2009 will be released on Monday, 8 March 2010.

Soladria says it had an agreement with Sasol to supply "dirty chemicals", which Sasol first denied, but then said existed and was terminated early on. Sasol has declined to settle with Soladria twice, despite been asked to do so. Soladria's case with Sasol is dependent on the outcome of a 27 January 2010 court hearing.

Sasol's earnings per share and headline earnings per share for the six months ending 31 December 2009 are estimated to decrease by at least 45% compared to the prior year comparable reporting period. In terms of the JSE Ltd listings requirements, a trading statement is necessitated when there is reasonable certainty that earnings will differ by at least twenty percent from the prior comparable period. Due to continued volatility, Sasol is unable at this time to give a more precise indication of how much this decrease will be, but a more accurate estimate will be given once the half year has closed and we have greater certainty. The expected decrease in earnings is mainly due to the significant strengthening of the rand against the US dollar and a decrease in average crude oil and product prices compared to the corresponding six months of the previous reporting period.



It is emphasised that this trading update deals only with the first half of the 2009 financial year comparison. The very low earnings base of the second half of the 2009 financial year will strongly influence a comparison of the full 2010 financial year?s results with 2009 and guidance in this regard will be given in due course.

Competition law compliance review

The following statement was made by the company at the annual general meeting: During the course of the past year the company has made several announcements with respect to competition law matters including the review of Sasol and its subsidiaries' ("the Sasol Group") competition law compliance. The board of directors of Sasol ("the board") regrets instances of collusion that occurred in the Sasol Wax GmbH and Sasol Nitro businesses and endorses executive management's unequivocal apology to all stakeholders. Legal compliance in general and competition law compliance specifically remain a priority focus area of Sasol's executive management and the board.



Sasol announced on 19 January 2009 that Sasol's executive management team had, in July 2008, launched a comprehensive competition law compliance review of all Sasol business units. It was further announced that the Board, on recommendation of Sasol's executive management, was also launching its own independent competition law compliance review ("board review").



The board review has now been completed and the board has mandated executive group management to further enhance Sasol's competition law compliance processes and systems. The board supports the remedial steps being taken and, further, believes that the implementation of these measures will augment the competition law compliance processes of the Sasol Group.

Prospects

Reduction in earnings for the full 2010 financial year. The decline in global chemical markets seen in the second half of the year is expected to stabilise, although increasing feedstock costs are expected to have a negative impact on our chemical businesses. While there has been some recovery in the markets of late, the crude oil price and rand/US dollar exchange rate remains volatile.



Taking into account the overall market conditions and our assumptions in respect of crude oil and product prices which are expected to remain at levels seen in the latter part of the 2009 financial year, as well as the current levels of lower chemical product demand, an expected significantly stronger rand/US dollar exchange rate and some improvement in overall production volumes, the earnings for the 2010 financial year are expected to reflect a reduction compared to the 2009 financial year. The current volatility and uncertainty of global markets makes it difficult to be more precise in this outlook statement.

The company indicated that the EPS and HEPS were expected to decrease by between 40% and 50%. At the time the company cautioned that the results may be further impacted by changes in the oil and product prices, the impact of a much stronger rand on closing financial assets and liabilities as well as any adjustments resulting from our year-end process and that these may result in a change in the estimated earnings. Developments in final month of trading



The negative effect of the stronger R/USD closing exchange rate was less than anticipated on closing balances, the strengthening of the Brent crude oil price and product prices during June 2009 exceeded expectations and higher refining margins as well as greater positive stock effects than forecasted were experienced. In addition, the decline in the Sasol share price during June 2009 resulted in lower share-based payment expenses. All of these positive factors contributed to the current profit expectation being better than expected than at the time of the issuance of the trading statement on 19 June 2009.

Taking cognisance of the abovementioned factors, the HEPS for the full 2009 financial year are expected to decrease by between 32% and 37%, and EPS are expected to decrease by between 37% and 42% compared to the prior year.

Petrochemicals group Sasol has held back jubilation at signs of a recovery in the price of international crude oil, with chief financial officer Christine Ramon saying the company was cautious about the short-term outlook for oil prices. The oil price has shown signs of recovery after it dipped to below USD33 a barrel earlier this year. Yesterday evening it was trading at just more than USD68 a barrel. Higher international crude oil prices will ease the pressure on Sasol's earnings. The lower oil price is one of the reasons for the expected fall in Sasol's earnings.



Sasol wanted to introduce carbon capture and storage technology into future coal-to-liquid plants, said Ramon. Ramon said Sasol wanted to reduce it's greenhouse gas emissions, introduce renewable energy and raw material feedstock."We are also investigating the potential of using viable Carbon dioxide capture and storage technologies. The idea is to integrate carbon capture and storage technology solutions into future (coal-to-liquid) plants. We are exploring opportunities for storing Carbon dioxide by compressing the gas to a liquid form and injecting it into deep geological formations, such as saline aquifers, unmineable coal seams or into depleted oil and gas fields," she said.

Davies still insists that he had no idea of the irregularities for which Sasol has been fined for and that "there was no hint that bending laws was OK". The CEO also thinks that the company has already made some progress on improving it business culture, but some have already questioned whether he is the right man to tackle these issues since he has been with the company since 1975, and may be too embedded in Sasol's culture, despite never been involved in the sales side where the problems seem to be.

Since the previously announced settlement agreement was concluded with the Competition Commission ("the commission") in respect of competition law contraventions in the fertilizer and phosphoric acid businesses of Sasol Nitro, Sasol has continued its internal investigations. It is only now after intensive repeat interviews with employees and former employees that additional new information relevant to one of the previously announced contraventions in the fertilizer business has been uncovered. Sasol tendered the information to the commission as soon as it was verified, in line with its commitment to co-operate with the commission.



In view of the new information Sasol tendered an amendment to the settlement agreement to expand the scope of the admissions that Sasol made in respect of the anti-competitive conduct in the fertilizer industry. The commission agreed to the amendments, but indicated that the amendment would require an increase in the administrative fine that Sasol agrees to pay in terms of the settlement agreement from R188.01 million to R250.68 million. The information changed the commission's view of the nature and seriousness of one of the matters covered by the settlement agreement.

These activities are still in progress across all of Sasol's businesses.



These discussions with the competition commission have progressed to the extent that a settlement agreement has been concluded with the competition commission. Subject to confirmation by the competition tribunal, the agreement will have the effect of a full and final settlement and conclusion of all proceedings between the commission and Sasol chemical Industries Ltd relating to any alleged contraventions by Sasol Chemical Industries Ltd of section 4(1)(b) (prohibiting collusive conduct) of the South African Competition Act that were the subject of the commission's investigations in respect of the Nutri-Flo matter and the phosphoric acid investigation . In terms of the agreement Sasol Chemical Industries Ltd will pay an administrative penalty of R188, 01 million. Provisions raised this financial year are sufficient to cover this administrative penalty. Steps have been taken by Sasol Nitro to address these areas of non-compliance.

Analysts have conflicting views about where Sasol's share price should be, with opinions and forecasts ranging from R220.00 to R370.00 a share. However, investors should not forget about Sasol's long-term prospects. According to Finweek, investors are very excited about Sasol's technology, especially its leading position in gas-to-liquid ("GTL") fuels, even though its GTL projects are yet to make a large contribution to profits. This could change in the future. An immediate negative though, is the EUR318.2 million fine that the European Commission on Competition placed on the company, which Sasol is intending to appeal.

As anticipated in several previous announcements made by Sasol, the European Union found that members of the European paraffin wax industry, including Sasol Wax GmbH, formed a cartel and violated antitrust laws. A fine of EUR318 200 000 was imposed by the European Commission on Sasol Wax GmbH (of which Sasol Wax International AG, Sasol Holding in Germany GmbH and Sasol Ltd would be jointly and severally be liable for EUR250 million). The fine is payable within three months. As a result of Sasol's co-operation and support in the investigations, the European Commission reduced the base amount of the fine by 50% to the net amount stated above. Sasol is surprised by and does not understand the reasons for the magnitude of this fine and will be studying the reasons for the finding with a view to lodge an appeal against it.



According to the statement of objections of the European Commission an infringement of antitrust laws commenced in 1992 or even earlier. In 1995 Sasol became a co-shareholder in an existing wax business located in Hamburg, Germany owned by the Schumann group. In July 2002 Sasol acquired the remaining shares in the joint venture and became the sole shareholder of the business. Sasol Ltd was unaware of these infringements before the European Commission commenced their investigation at the wax business in Hamburg in April 2005. Sasol views this matter in a serious light and has intensified its competition and anti-trust law compliance programmes in all its businesses including joint ventures. It is Sasol's policy to comply with all applicable laws, including competition laws.

Shareholders are advised that, in accordance with the general authority granted by them at Sasol's annual general meeting held on 30 November 2007, Sasol through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sasol Investment Company (Pty) Ltd ("SIC"), purchased 6.01% of its own shares on the open market of the JSE Ltd ("JSE") between 7 March 2007 and 18 September 2008.



Implementation

As at 30 June 2008, 37 093 117 Sasol ordinary shares in aggregate had been repurchased, equivalent to approximately 5.88% of Sasol's issued share capital on the date that the authority was given. The repurchase programme was suspended during Sasol's closed periods (between 31 December 2007 and 25 March 2008 and between 30 June 2008 and 9 September 2008) but recommenced on 17 September 2008 on a day-to-day basis as market conditions allowed. By close of trading on 18 September 2008, a further 800 000 Sasol ordinary shares had been repurchased. A total of 37 893 117 Sasol ordinary shares, equivalent to 6.01% of the issued share capital of Sasol on the date that the authority was given, have now been purchased by SIC. Details of shares repurchased since commencement of the repurchase programme in March 2007 are as follows:

*Number of ordinary shares repurchased -- 37 893 117

*Cost of ordinary shares repurchased -- R 11 233 million

*Highest price paid per ordinary share -- R 348.00

*Lowest price paid per ordinary share -- R 215.48

*Average price paid per ordinary share -- R 295.61

Repurchases have been and will in future continue to be funded from available cash resources.



Listing of shares on JSE

The repurchased shares will remain listed on the JSE. The repurchased shares are held by SIC as treasury shares, and therefore do not carry any voting rights. All the repurchased shares are held as a long-term investment.

Finweek reported that the general public can now purchase Sasol shares for around R350.00 each. This is around 5% cheaper than the R368.00 that previously disadvantaged people had to pay for shares in the group under the Inzalo empowerment scheme. Even though the oil price has weakened lately, the rand has also weakened, implying that Sasol is now receiving 14% more per barrel of oil that it produces compared to the previous financial year. As a result, the 33% dive in its share price, from R515.00 at the end of May 2008 to R350.00, looks overdone.

Turnover rose to R129.9 billion (R98.1 billion) for the year to 30 June 2008. Operating profit increased by 32% on the previous financial year to reach a record of R33.8 billion (R25.6 billion). Earnings attributable to shareholders for the year ended 30 June 2008 was up 32% to R22.4 billion from R17 billion in the previous financial year. In addition, headline earnings per share grew to 3 809cps (2 537cps).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 935cps has been declared.



Prospects

Production at the Arya Sasol Polymer plant, the Oryx GTL facility and the Octene 3 plant will be ramping up further during 2009. Sasol also expects to increase production at the Sasol Synfuels operation. Based on overall improved production volumes, a modest increase in the average crude oil price, marginally weaker exchange rate and softer refined product price and chemical price assumptions relative to 2008, the earnings for 2009 are expected to reflect robust growth on 2008. The effects of Sasol's BEE transactions, which are expected to have material non-cash accounting effects, have not been taken into account in this profit outlook. The group expects dividend policy to remain within the target range of 2.5 times to 3.5 times earnings cover before taking into account the non-cash IFRS2 accounting effects of the Sasol Inzalo BEE transaction.

On 13 May Sasol reported that the capital cost of the Escravos gas-to-liquids project (EGTL) under construction in Nigeria is expected to increase to USD6 billion and that Sasol was reviewing all the factors that have an impact on the project economics.

As a result of the reduction in our economic interest, an impairment of R362 million was recognised in 2008 in operating profit (a net effect after tax of R112 million) relating to interest previously capitalised on the capital expenditure.

Sasol has entered into hedging transactions (zero cost collars) for 16.425 million barrels of oil (equivalent to about 30% of its planned South African synfuels production) for the remainder of the 2009 financial year. The hedge will provide downside protection should monthly average dated Brent crude oil prices decrease below USD90/ bbl (put level) on the hedged portion of synfuels production. Conversely, Sasol will incur opportunity losses on the hedged portion of production should monthly average oil prices exceed a volume weighted average USD228/bbl (call level). The hedge has been executed over a four week period (commencing at the beginning of the new financial year, 1 July 2008) and due to the volatility of the oil price, call levels between USD195/bbl and USD253/bbl were attained.



Similar to the synfuels hedge Sasol also entered into zero cost collars for 550 000 barrels of oil for its Sasol Petroleum International`s West African crude oil output (representing about 30% of planned net output for financial year 2009). The levels attained were a put level of USD90/bbl and a call level of USD240/bbl.



Sasol considers oil price hedging on an annual basis as part of its risk management activity. In the light of very volatile oil prices, Sasol believes that the hedge that has been entered into will mitigate the risk of any substantial fall in oil prices.

According to Business Report, Sasol's hedging strategy, which was initiated in 2004 to shield the company from falling oil prices, has cut R3 billion from the group's revenues over the past four years. Sasol introduced the hedge in 2004 to protect itself from downside risks so that it could fund a massive capital spending programme. But Mohamed Kharva, a Nedcor Securities analyst, commented that Sasol should discontinue its hedging strategy as oil prices were expected to remain strong. Some analysts believe that the second-half hedging loss could double as oil prices have broken through USD100 million a barrel.

Business Day reported that Sasol had given its strongest signal yet that it was determined to build a new coal-to-liquids plant in South Africa, when it announced that its board had committed R300 million to examine the project's viability. The "Mafutha project" would cost an estimated USD5 billion-7 billion (up to R56 billion) and would be South Africa's largest greenfields investment to date. If built, the new plant could add capacity of 80 000 barrels a day. Sasol also said that it was in talks with the Industrial Development Corporation and the two government departments about the development. Sasol has commented previously that it would not be the sole investor in a project of this magnitude.

Turnover for the six months to 31 December 2007 increased to R55.5 billion (R48.5 billion). Operating profit of R14 billion was 15% higher than the comparable figure of R12.2 billion. Earnings attributable to shareholders for the six months ended 31 December 2007 increased by 15% to R9.1 billion from R8 billion previously. Headline earnings per share was up 18% to R14.56.



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of 365cps (310cps) has been declared.



Outlook

Sasol is currently commissioning new production capacity at Arya Sasol and Oryx GTL's output is steadily increasing. Sasol expects to see the benefits in group earnings during the second half of the 2008 financial year and into the 2009 financial year, when production at these plants ramps up. Taking into account Sasol's assumptions on prices and currencies, the earnings for the full 2008 financial year will reflect good growth compared with the 2007 financial year. The effects of the group's BEE transactions as announced in September 2007, which are expected to have material non-cash accounting effects, have not been taken into account in this outlook.

Sasol announced that it had, for its 2007 financial year which commenced 1 July 2006, entered into hedging transactions (zero cost collars) for 45 000 barrels of oil per day (equivalent to approximately 30% of its South African synfuels production). In terms of this hedge Sasol will be protected should monthly average dated Brent crude oil prices decrease below USD63.00 per barrel on the hedged portion of production, and conversely Sasol will incur opportunity losses on the hedged portion of production should monthly average oil prices exceed an average USD83.60 per barrel. This is in line with Sasol's approach to consider oil price hedging on an annual basis to improve the stability and predictability of its cash flows. The zero cost collar structure is similar to the oil price hedging concluded for the 2006 financial year when a floor price of USD45 per barrel was achieved and upside was limited to USD83 per barrel, also on 45 000 barrels of oil per day. During the 2006 financial year oil prices did not fall below USD45 per barrel or increase above USD83 per barrel and no cash flows, therefore, emanated from the hedging. Appropriate disclosure of this hedging will also be made in the group's 2006 annual report.

When Sasol on 7 March 2006 announced its interim financial results for the six months ended 31 December 2005, the company commented "Assuming lower oil and commodity chemical prices and a stronger rand relative to the first half, earnings in the second half of the financial year are expected to be considerably lower than the first half year although pleasing growth in earnings for the full financial year is anticipated."



Contrary to expectations, average international oil prices in the second half of the financial year are anticipated to be approximately 8% higher than in the first half. The average rand: US dollar exchange rate is expected to be approximately 6% stronger than in the first half, in line with expectations. As a consequence, while earnings in the second half of the financial year are still expected to be lower than in the first half year, headline earnings per share for the full financial year are expected to be between 20% - 25% higher than those achieved in the previous financial year. Attributable earnings per share are expected to be between 35% - 40% higher, with the difference in the increases arising because of capital effects of about R1.2 billion in the previous financial year.

Sasol's shareholders are referred to the joint announcement today by Petronas, Sasol, Tshwarisano LFB Investment (Pty) Ltd and Worldwide African Investment Holdings.



Although disappointed with the outcome and much of the commentary in the judgement published by the Competition Tribunal, Sasol respects the process and decision made relating to the proposed merger of its liquid fuels business with Engen. The business case and merits of this merger remain compelling in Sasol's view. It is considered unfortunate that an opportunity to create a national fuel champion, in much the same way as other countries have their own (e.g. BP of the United Kingdom, Total of France, etc) in markets that are significantly larger than South Africa's, has been lost.

According to Business Day, Sasol signed an agreement with the Central Energy Fund (CEF) for further studies that would speed up Sasol's plans to build a plant that would enable them to produce diesel from soy. Earlier feasibility studies showed potential for commercial-scale production, if it were supported by appropriate fiscal incentives. The proposed plant would use about 500 000 tons of soy beans to produce about 100 000 tons of biodiesel per annum, which translates in to about 125 million litres of fuel. It is expected that the new feasibility study would be done by year-end 2006.

When Sasol announced its results in September 2005 for the financial year ended 30 June 2005, the company commented: "International oil and commodity chemical markets and prices are unstable and so forecasting these with confidence is not possible. Nevertheless, assuming no major disruptions in world currency and energy markets, we anticipate satisfactory growth in earnings in the year ahead."



During the intervening months, international oil prices have been nearly 25% higher than anticipated, the Rand: US Dollar exchange rate has been weaker than expected and pleasing plant efficiencies and operating rates have generally been achieved. As a result, Sasol's financial results for the six months ending 31 December 2005 are forecast to be better than anticipated when the previous public announcement was made.



Although it is premature to comment on attributable earnings for the six months ending 31 December 2005, headline earnings are expected to be between 65% and 75% higher than those of the comparable previous reporting period (i.e. six months ended 31 December 2004). It is important to note, however, that based on an expectation that international oil prices will be lower in the second half of the financial year and that commodity chemical prices and margins will also weaken, earnings growth for the full financial year is expected to be more in line with the profit outlook given in September 2005.

Sasol today announced that it is evaluating several new gas-to-liquids (GTL) and coal-to-liquids (CTL) opportunities over and above the ventures it is currently developing with partners in Qatar and Nigeria. One of Sasol's strategic growth drivers is the commercialisation of GTL - CTL. One such opportunity is in Algeria. The Algerian Ministry of Mines - Energy and Sonatrach, the Algerian national oil company, are soliciting bids for a 34 000 barrel per day GTL project at Arzew using potential gas reserves in the Tinrhert area. Sasol Chevron, the joint venture between Sasol and Chevron Corporation, headquartered in the USA, submitted a non-binding technical proposal at the end of September 2005. The Algerian authorities have set the middle of 2006 as the date for commercial submissions. Another opportunity is the USA. Recent changes to the USA"s Energy Policy Act resulted in renewed interest in CTL projects in the US. Sasol is currently in the early stages of evaluating several potential CTL ventures in the USA. Again, these studies are in pre-feasibility stage and Sasol has taken no decision whether or not to pursue any of these opportunities.

Sasol might be forced to sell a 13.6% stake in the Natref inland refinery, following a misunderstanding concerning Total's pre-emptive right of whether it wants to increase it's stake in the refinery or not. Total's decision not to exercise its option meant that the merged entity would have a larger share of fuel production in South Africa than the Competition Commission assumed it would have. Business Day noted that Total's expected increased stake in Natref was one of two possible remedies the commission assumed would take place. The other option was government's plan to build a new pipeline to transport fuel from the coast to inland regions which would in effect eliminate other fuel companies' reliance on Sasol for fuel supply inland. Opposing companies BP, Shell, Chevron and Total however dismissed these as inadequate to address their concerns over Uhambo's dominance in fuel production and retailing in South Africa.

Turnover increased to R69.2bn (R60.2bn) and attributable earnings increased by 61% from R5.9bn to R9.6bn. Headline earnings per share increased by 87% to R17.49 (R9.34) while operating profit rose R5.2bn (56%) to R14.5bn (R9.3bn). Higher average international oil prices boosted operating profit by about R2.5bn. This benefit was partly offset by the adverse impact of the stronger rand during the year (average rate R6.21:USD1 versus R6.88:USD1 in 2004), which reduced operating profit by approximately R2.7bn.



A dividend of 310cps was declared bringing the total dividend declared for the year to R5.40, representing a 20% increase.



Prospects

International oil and commodity chemical markets and prices are unstable and so forecasting these with confidence is not possible. Nevertheless, assuming no major disruptions in world currency and energy markets, the group anticipates satisfactory growth in earnings in the year ahead.

Sasol announced today that it is considering the disposal of its Olefins and Surfactants (O-S) business excluding its co-monomers activities in South Africa. Sasol acquired Condea in March 2001 from German-based RWE Dea for EUR1.3bn. Most of this business was subsequently hosted in Sasol O-S with production facilities mainly in the USA, Europe and South Africa. A smaller part of the business was hosted in Sasol Solvents which, together with the South African-based solvents activities, forms a global solvents business. The entire solvents business is being retained by Sasol. `Since the acquisition, substantial success has been achieved in reducing costs and improving the productivity at Sasol O-S. Pleasing progress has also been made in strengthening relationships with key customers,` says Sasol deputy chief executive Trevor Munday.



`In 2003, Sasol determined that it would continue to grow its chemical businesses conditional upon projects leveraging its technology or securing integrated and highly cost-competitive feedstock positions. The O-S business is only partially integrated upstream into feedstocks and has not adequately provided the integration benefits which Sasol requires,` says Munday. Sasol has embarked on an exciting international commercialisation programme of its leading gas-to-liquid (GTL) fuels technology and possibly also at a later stage its coal-to-liquid (CTL) technology. `This is expected to require significant funding. The GTL and CTL ventures will support or enhance traditionally high margins achieved by Sasol as a consequence of its technology and operating prowess,` says Sasol chief executive Pat Davies. `To optimally leverage both its talented people and financial resources in the next few years, Sasol wishes to establish the saleability of Sasol O-S at fair value,` says Davies. `During this process, Sasol will remain committed to the strategic and operational goals of Sasol O-S and will continue to provide the business with the support necessary to uphold its effectiveness and success,` he says.



Deutsche Bank has been appointed to assist Sasol in procuring offers, assessing the feasibility and attractiveness thereof and executing any potential transaction.

Sasol announces that due to continuing volatility in oil markets and considering its capital expenditure plans and the merits of improving the stability of its cash flows, it has for its financial year which started 1 July 2005, entered into hedging transactions (zero cost collars) for 45 000 barrels of oil (dated Brent) per day (equivalent to approximately 30% of its synfuels production). In terms of this hedge Sasol will be protected, should monthly average oil prices decrease below USD45.00 per barrel on the hedged portion of production, and conversely Sasol will incur opportunity losses on the hedged portion of production should monthly average oil prices exceed USD82.61 per barrel. This follows Sasol`s announcement in May 2004 that it had embarked on a modest hedging programme in respect of its exposure to the oil price, with the objective of improving the stability of its cash flows in light of its capital expenditure plans for its financial year that commenced on 1 July 2004. That programme was concluded in May 2005. Sasol announced at the time that going forward it intended to review the merits of hedging a portion of its synfuels production each financial year. Appropriate disclosure of this hedging will also be made in our 2005 annual report and Form 20-F.

On 25 April 2005, Sasol issued a trading statement advising that it anticipated rand attributable earnings and earnings per share for the financial year ending 30 June 2005 to be between 45% and 55% higher than those achieved in the previous financial year. The trading statement also advised that headline earnings were expected to increase by between 55% and 65% compared to the previous financial year. At the time the trading statement was issued, the rand was trading at about R6.00 : USD1.00 and international oil prices were about USD52.60 per barrel. During the intervening period through to end-June 2005, the rand weakened by more than 10% and oil prices increased by approximately 5%.



Primarily as a consequence of these factorsrand attributable earnings and earnings per share for the full financial year ended 30 June 2005, are expected to be between 55% and 60% higher than those achieved in the previous financial year. Impairment tests on all material assets have been undertaken as a part of the year-end accounting exercise. Primarily because of anticipated impairments and other capital effects including non-recurring income and proceeds from asset disposals in the previous year, it is also expected that rand headline earnings and headline earnings per share should be between 80% and 85% better than those achieved in the previous financial year. This revised view has not been audited or reviewed by the company`s auditors.
