Johannesburg, South Africa – The Sasol New Signatures Art Competition 2020 has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s competition and all associated events. This follows health and safety concerns arising from the COVID-19 pandemic as well as logistical challenges related to restrictions to contain the spread of the disease in South Africa.
Given the challenges we face in the next few months, we don’t believe that we will be able to run the competition safely and viably enough this year. We made this decision after much consideration and due diligence in seeking alternate ways to run the competition under the restrictions we face due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Pieter van Heerden, Director of the Association of Arts Pretoria.
“While we are deeply saddened at having to cancel the event, the safety of our artists, staff and attendees has to remain our key priority. We encourage you all to stay safe, and keep creating during this time of lockdown,” van Heerden continued.

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.
