Durban, South Africa – Sasol Satellite Operations will host a ceremony on Wednesday, 14 February in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal where last year’s top performing Grade 12 learners will be awarded bursaries.
The learners will receive bursaries from the Sasol corporate bursary programme as well as the Sasol Inzalo Foundation bursary scheme. Both programmes are aimed at promoting interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics related careers.
Sasol Satellite Operations, Senior Vice President, Rightwell Laxa, said the successful candidates were deliberately selected from Sasol’s fence-line communities in Durban. These include Merebank, Newcastle, Richards Bay, Empangeni, Wentworth, Lamontville and Umlazi.
“With the scarcity of talent in South Africa and globally it is essential for Sasol to ensure continuous availability of skills to sustain our growth. The Sasol bursary scheme is a critical talent lever to enable us to meet our strategic and transformation objectives” said Rightwell Laxa.
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 2017 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.
