Johannesburg, South Africa – Sasol employees have collected more than R100 000 to support relief efforts in Mozambique following the devastation left by Cyclone Idai and later Cyclone Kenneth. This morning, Sasol Executive Vice President: Human Resources and Corporate Affairs, Charlotte Mokoena donated the funds to charity organisation, Gift of the Givers. The donation was received by its founder, Dr Imtiaz Ismail Sooliman.

“We are truly grateful for the stellar work that aid organisations such as Gift of the Givers are doing to restore some form of normality to the lives of thousands of people in Mozambique who have been severely affected by the floods,” said Mokoena.

“We are also particularly proud of our employees who contributed generously to aid relief efforts in Mozambique, both with cash and through in-kind donations. We hope their contribution will bring some relief to families affected by this terrible event,” she added.

Established in 1992, Gift of the Givers is the largest disaster response agency of African origin on the African continent. It has delivered in excess of R2-billion of aid to millions of people in 42 countries, including South Africa, over its 27 year history.

The aid organisation also implements projects in 21 different categories. These include bursaries, agricultural self-sustainability, water provision, establishment of primary health care clinics and medical support to hospitals, and feeding schemes and food parcel distribution.

 

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts that 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 and cost reductions, including in connection with our BPEP, RP and our 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 statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 28 August 2018 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying 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 as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
