NEW OPERATING MODEL
As previously communicated, Sasol's response plan to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19
pandemic and lower oil prices included near-term deleveraging measures together with a reset of
the strategy and operating model to position the business for sustained profitability in a low oil price
environment. The new operating model is now in place and allows the business to be more agile,
cost competitive and customer focused.
The non-financial information contained in the business performance metrics for the nine months
ended 31 March 2021 has been presented in accordance with the new operating model. The
financial information has been restated for financial years 2019, 2020 and half year 2021.
Additional information, including a revised overview of the business and modelling guidance for
analysts and investors, is available on Sasol's website:
