Audited Financial Results for the year ended 30 June 2022

AUDITED FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022

Earnings performance
Sasol delivered a strong set of financial results against the backdrop of increased volatility
resulting from ongoing geopolitical tensions, extended COVID-19 lockdowns and global supply
chain disruptions. We benefitted from higher energy and chemicals prices, as well as strong
cost and capital discipline through the delivery of our Sasol 2.0 transformation programme. This
was offset by lower volume performance mainly due to the operational challenges experienced
in the first half of the financial year. We have seen improved performance on the back of more
stable operations in the second half of the financial year

Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of R61,4 billion increased by more than 100% compared
to the prior year, driven by higher crude oil prices, refining margins and chemical prices. This
also resulted in a strong gross margin improvement compared to the prior year.

1 Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBIT for depreciation, amortisation, share-based payments,
remeasurement items, change in discount rates of environmental provisions, all unrealised translation gains and
losses, and all unrealised gains and losses on our derivatives and hedging activities. We believe adjusted
EBITDA is a useful measure of the Group’s underlying cash flow performance. However, this is not a defined
term under IFRS and may not be comparable with similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
(Adjusted EBITDA constitutes pro forma financial information in terms of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements
and should be read in conjunction with the basis of preparation and pro forma financial information as set out in
the full set of audited summarised financial statements).

2 Core HEPS is calculated by adjusting headline earnings per share with non-recurring items, earnings losses of
significant capital projects (exceeding R4 billion) which have reached beneficial operation and are still ramping up,
all translation gains and losses (realised and unrealised), all gains and losses on our derivatives and hedging
activities (realised and unrealised), and share-based payments on implementation of B-BBEE transactions.
Adjustments in relation to the valuation of our derivatives at period end are to remove volatility from earnings as
these instruments are valued using forward curves and other market factors at the reporting date and could vary
from period to period. We believe core headline earnings are a useful measure of the Group´s sustainable
operating performance. (Core HEPS constitutes pro forma financial information in terms of the JSE Limited

information as set out in the full set of audited summarised financial statements.

Dividend
A final gross cash dividend of South African 1 470 cents per share (30 June 2021 – nil cents per
ordinary share) has been declared for the year ended 30 June 2022. The cash dividend is

the liquidity and solvency of the company, as well as capital adequacy remaining after payment
of the dividend, are sufficient to support the current operations for the ensuing year. The
dividend has been declared out of retained earnings (income reserves). The South African
dividend withholding tax rate is 20%. At the declaration date, there are 629 367 128 ordinary
and 6 331 347 Sasol BEE ordinary shares in issue. The net dividend amount payable to
shareholders who are not exempt from dividend withholding tax, is 1 176 cents per share, while
