(the Issuer) has priced an offering of US$-denominated, Rule 144A / Regulation S notes, being
US$1 000 million of notes due 2029 (the Notes). The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 8.750% per
annum. The orderbook peaked above US$2,3 billion, which represents an oversubscription of more
than 2,3 times.

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,
expectations, developments and business strategies. 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 August 31,
2022 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, and you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. 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
