6 September 2019 regarding the delay in the release of Sasol’s annual results for the year
ended 30 June 2019 (2019 financial results) and related year-end publications to allow for
the completion of the independent review commissioned by the Sasol board of directors (the

The report from the Board Review is complete and the Board will now consider the findings
and determine any appropriate steps arising from these. The Board will make an
announcement on these matters in due course.

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate
to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates
of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects,
developments and business strategies. Examples of such forward-looking statements include,
but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth,
increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects (including
LCCP), oil and gas reserves, cost reductions, our Continuous Improvement (CI) initiative and
business performance outlook. Words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend,
“seek”, “will”, “plan”, “could”, “may”, “endeavour”, “target”, “forecast” and “project” and similar
expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive
means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve
inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the
predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved.
If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect,
our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a
number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans,
objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking

on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider
both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only
