Sasol to Build Oxygen Production Facility at its Synthetic Fuels and Chemicals Complex in Secunda, South Africa

Sasol and Air Liquide have signed an agreement under which Air Liquide will invest around 200 million in the construction of the large Air Separation Unit (ASU) ever built at Sasol's synthetic fuels and chemicals complex in Secunda, South Africa. Through this agreement, Air Liquide will build, own and operate a 5,000 tonne per day air separation train to supply oxygen and nitrogen to Sasol s proprietary synthetic fuels and chemicals manufacturing process. This is the 17th train to be built at Sasol s Secunda complex. Using the latest air separation technology and economies of scale, this train will be the most energy efficient oxygen train on the Secunda site with a significantly reduced impact on the environment. The oxygen capacity created enables Sasol to operate this complex up to the middle of the century, which is a cornerstone of the group's Project 2050 strategy.

Sasol Ltd. Provides Earnings Guidance for the Six Months Ended 31 December 2014

Sasol Ltd. provided earnings guidance for the six months ended 31 December 2014. The company's headline earnings per share for the six months ended 31 December 2014 is expected to increase by between 3% and 9% (approximating ZAR 0.91 to ZAR 2.72) and earnings per share for the same period is expected to increase by between 51% and 57% (approximating ZAR 10.65 to ZAR 11.90), off a 2014 half year base of ZAR 30.19 and ZAR 20.88 respectively. Excluding the impact of notable once-off items, net impairments charges, stock movements and the share-based payment expense, EPS would have decreased by between 21% and 27%. Sasol's profitability for the first half of the 2015 financial year was positively impacted by the following factors: A solid operational performance through increases in production and sales volumes across the majority of Sasol's integrated value chain; 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: Reversal of share-based payment expense of ZAR 2.5 billion due to a 32% lower share price; Positive impact arising from the movement in un-realised profit in inventory of approximately ZAR 2.0 billion at period end; Net impairments of ZAR 0.2 billion for the six months under review compared to the comparable period of ZAR 6.0 billion, which included the ZAR 5.3 billion partial impairment of the Canadian shale gas assets; and Extension of the useful life of the Southern African operations amounting to ZAR 2.5 billion. Conversely, Sasol's profitability was negatively impacted by 19% lower average Brent crude oil prices (average dated Brent was $89/barrel for the six months ended 31 December 2014 compared to $109.83 in the prior comparable period).
