Secunda, Mpumalanga – Sasol, in partnership with Mpumalanga government, will from 29 July – 2 August 2019 bring learners to Sasol Techno X 2019 in Secunda, which is regarded as the largest career guidance exhibition of its kind in the inland provinces.
For the past 19 years Sasol has hosted the exhibition. Since 2015 the exhibition has alternatively been hosted between Sasolburg and Secunda. Sasol Techno X is an annual career exhibition that is part of the company’s programmes that promote sustainable socio-economic development through education. It mainly promotes STEM education at schools to enable access to tertiary education, and ultimately boosts the pool of technical, vocational and STEM-related skills among the youth of South Africa. The exhibition is targeting high school learners from across the country and enables them to engage with the real world application of STEM subjects in a way that creates interest and captivates the imagination.
This will be the third time Sasol Techno X is hosted in Secunda. During 2015 and 2017 more than 48 000 learners from different provinces, with a large number from Mpumalanga province attended the exhibition. Learners are given access to relevant information on careers within STEM-related fields, career guidance and bursary opportunities from different institutions. Learners further directly engage with academic institutions in order to get better insights on the fields of study they would like to pursue.
The exhibition also offers learners an opportunity to enter various competitions (such as science, art and making fashion garments from used recyclable materials) Wow-shows, where scientific principles are demonstrated to inspire and motivate the next generation of scientists are a highlight on the daily programme. Many learners who attended previously, said that they were impressed with the easy access to information regarding possible career paths they can follow in future. Another “not-to-be missed” show is the Kalahari Scientist who teaches scientific principles through demonstrations designed to inspire and motivate our country’s future leaders. His passionate way of presenting, coupled with clear explanations, makes it a truly memorable experience for learners and teachers.

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.
