Sasol Nitro, a division of Sasol Chemical Industries Limited,
settles with Competition Commission regarding allegations of
abuse of dominance in its fertiliser businesses

Sasol Nitro, a division of Sasol Chemical Industries Limited, has
concluded a settlement agreement with the Competition Commission
of South Africa, relating to its fertiliser business. This
agreement is scheduled to be considered by the Competition
Tribunal on 14
July 2010.

Sasol Nitro and the Commission have been engaged in settlement
discussions, regarding alleged contraventions of the Competition
Act, pertaining to excessive pricing and exclusionary practices.
The discussions have been focussed on addressing outstanding
matters raised by Nutri-Flo and Profert, from the mid-2000s.

The settlement will see Sasol Nitro restructuring its fertiliser
business. Sasol Nitro does not believe it engaged in excessive
and exclusionary practices. Sasol believes the restructuring 
will address the Commission’s concerns regarding
Sasol’s position within the nitrogen based fertiliser value
chain, while also opening the industry to more competition. Sasol
Nitro will withdraw from certain downstream activities with
increased focus on the core activities of its fertiliser

Sasol Nitro approached the Commission with this structural
solution and has undertaken several changes to its fertiliser
business model:
1.    Divesting its regional blending capacity in Bellville,
       Durban, Kimberley, Potchefstroom and Endicott whilst
       retaining its full production activities in Secunda.
2.   Altering Sasol Nitro’s fertiliser sales approach to a
      Secunda ex-works model. All fertiliser retail agent
      contracts will be phased out and a new fertiliser sales
      operating model formulated.
3.   Pricing all ammonium nitrate based fertilisers on an ex-
      Secunda basis.
4.   Phasing out ammonia imports on behalf of customers in South

Approximately 50 permanent Sasol Nitro employees will be affected
by the restructuring as well as approximately 90 commission-based

Over the implementation period, Sasol Nitro will work with the
affected parties to, as far as possible, limit the impact of the
changes on the staff. Sasol ChemCity, Sasol’s business incubator,
will facilitate interested parties in the development of business
opportunities that may arise from the restructuring.

“Not only will this settlement see us restructure our fertiliser
business within Sasol, we believe it will open the downstream
fertiliser industry to more players, encouraging competition and
potentially create new distribution business opportunities, as
this sector redesigns itself. We also believe that these changes
will create several new opportunities for Sasol Nitro to improve
our offering to the end customer, our farmers”, said Marius
Brand, managing director of Sasol Nitro.

“We remain committed to the agriculture industry and the
competitiveness of inputs to that industry. We have already
started with detailed planning to ensure these changes are
implemented as smoothly as possible”, he said.

The agreement will be a full and final settlement of the alleged
contraventions of excessive pricing and exclusionary practices,
which are the subject of the Nutri-Flo and Profert referrals, but
requires confirmation by the Tribunal. As the Commission is of
the view that the settlement will address their competition
concerns, the Commission has not sought an administrative

The proposed settlement together with the changes to the Sasol
Nitro business will not have a material adverse impact on the
Sasol Group.
