DIVESTMENT OF FULL SHAREHOLDING IN CENTRAL TERMICA DE RESSANO GARCIA
Sasol is pleased to announce that a Sale Securities Purchase Agreement has been signed with
Azura Power Limited for the divestment of the Company’s full shareholding in CTRG, the gas-
to-power plant located in Ressano Garcia, Mozambique.
The transaction is subject to a number of conditions precedent, which include regulatory
approval and the waiver of pre-emption rights held by Electricidade de Mocambique (EDM), the
Mozambican state-owned electricity company.
The consideration will be approximately USD145 million and covers the equity and other
shareholder claims that Sasol holds in CTRG. This will be subject to any relevant closing
adjustments, including those in relation to working capital.
This transaction is part of the Company’s ongoing, strategy aligned, asset divestment
programme. Sasol remains fully committed to upstream operations in Mozambique, which
continue to be integral to Sasol’s strategy.
