for the six months ended 31 December 2017

Financial overview

The Sasol Inzalo share transaction will unwind in September 2018. Sasol Inzalo Public (RF) Limited
(the group) will be required to dispose of the preferred ordinary shares in order to be in a position to
redeem the preference share funding and cumulative dividends in 2018. Any shortfall in the value of
the preferred ordinary shares held by the group will be made good through a subscription of shares by
Sasol Limited in the group.

The investment in Sasol Limited was revalued at the closing market price of R428,18 per Sasol Limited
ordinary share as at 31 December 2017, to a value of R6 887 million (R6 417 million at 31 December
2016 at a closing market price of R398,90 per share) in line with the group's accounting policy for
investments classified as available-for-sale financial assets. At a Sasol Limited ordinary share price
of R425 and preference share funding balances at 31 December 2017 of R7 400 million, there is a shortfall
and a funding commitment for the Sasol Group of approximately R0,6 billion. As a result, assuming the
Sasol Limited share price remains at R425, there will be no distribution of Sasol Limited
ordinary shares to Sasol Inzalo Public funded participants when the transaction ends in September 2018.

The group recorded a net loss for the six months ended 31 December 2017 of R56 million (2016:
R58 million).

The directors have made an assessment of the group's ability to continue as a going concern until
termination date, and there is no reason to believe the business will not continue until the transaction
unwinds in September 2018.

Sufficient cash is expected to be generated from the dividends that will be received from
Sasol Limited in the period until termination of the scheme, to pay for the operating expenses as
well as preference dividends and a portion of the capital repayments on the preference shares which
are due.

Independent auditor's review report on the
condensed consolidated interim financial
statements

To the Shareholders of Sasol Inzalo Public (RF) Limited

We have reviewed the condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Sasol Inzalo Public (RF)
Limited in the accompanying interim report, which comprise the condensed consolidated statement of
financial position as at 31 December 2017 and the related condensed consolidated income statement
and statement of comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for the six-months then
ended, and selected explanatory notes.

Directors' responsibility for the interim financial statements

The directors are responsible for the preparation and presentation of these interim financial
statements in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standard, (IAS) 34 Interim Financial
Reporting, the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee
and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council and the
requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa, and for such internal control as the directors
determine is necessary to enable the preparation of interim financial statements that are free from
material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor's responsibility

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these interim financial statements. We conducted our
review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements 2410, Review of Interim
Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity. ISRE 2410 requires us to
conclude whether anything has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the interim
financial statements are not prepared in all material respects in accordance with the applicable financial
reporting framework. This standard also requires us to comply with relevant ethical requirements.

A review of interim financial statements in accordance with ISRE 2410 is a limited assurance
engagement. We perform procedures, primarily consisting of making inquiries of management and
others within the entity, as appropriate, and applying analytical procedures, and evaluate the evidence
obtained.

The procedures in a review are substantially less than and differ in nature from those performed in
an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Accordingly, we do not
express an audit opinion on these interim financial statements.

Emphasis of matter

Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to the interim financial statements which indicates
that the group incurred a net loss of R56 million for the six months ended 31 December 2017 and, as at
that date, the groupâEURTMs total liabilities exceeded its total assets by R730 million, rendering the
company technically insolvent. The directors have made an assessment of the group's ability to continue
as a going concern and there is no reason to believe the business will not be a going concern until the
transaction unwinds in September 2018.

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the
accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Sasol Inzalo Public (RF)
Limited for the six months ended 31 December 2017 are not prepared, in all material respects, in
accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standard, (IAS) 34 Interim Financial Reporting,
the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial
Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council and the requirements of the
Companies Act of South Africa.
