JOHANNESBURG, March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sasol was scheduled to host a conference call on Tuesday, 10 March 2020, at 15:00 (SAST) in order to discuss the recent outcome of the periodic ratings review by S&P Global and Moody's.
Given the latest developments where oil prices have declined significantly and increased market volatility, the conference call will be moved to Tuesday, 17 March 2020, at 15:00 (SAST). This allows more time to assess the impact of these latest developments on the market and Sasol in particular.
Balance sheet protection remains a key priority. As communicated during the interim financial results, we continue to actively manage the balance sheet and several steps have already been taken to mitigate market volatility. This includes our hedging programme to mitigate commodity price movements and exchange rate exposures. We have hedged our US$/ZAR exchange rate and ethane exposure, but oil price exposure is not hedged for the remainder of FY20.
