-   Sasol Inzalo Public Funding (RF) Limited (“Fundco”), a wholly owned subsidiary
    of Sasol Inzalo Public, is obliged to redeem its A, B and C preference shares on

    to dispose of a sufficient number of these shares to Sasol Limited (“Sasol”) on
    Friday, 7 September 2018 in order to satisfy the Preference Share Debt. This
    disposal will take place at the 30 day volume weighted average price of a Sasol
    ordinary share (“30 day VWAP”) on Thursday, 6 September 2018;

-   Sasol has accepted the offer from Fundco to sell, for cash, to Sasol any Available
    Shares held by Fundco after settlement of the Preference Share Debt;

*Shareholders were cautioned that if the 30 day VWAP on Thursday, 6 September 2018
is less than R462, Fundco will be obliged to sell all its Sasol preferred ordinary
shares in order to settle its Preference Share Debt and there will therefore be no
Available   Shares      and   accordingly    no    distribution   ultimately     to   Sasol   Inzalo
shareholders.

**Shareholders are informed that the change in the delisting date from Friday,
7 September 2018 (as mentioned in the announcement on Monday, 20 August 2018) to
Tuesday, 18 September 2018 is to allow for the distribution of cash before the
delisting   of    the   SIPBEE      shares   and   will   have   no   adverse   effect   on   SIPBEE
shareholders.

In   accordance    with       the   requirements     of    Strate,    no     dematerialisation    or
rematerialisation of SIPBEE shares will be possible from Wednesday, 5 September
2018 to Friday, 7 September 2018, both dates inclusive.
