2.       Details regarding the Cash Issue

The Issue Shares were issued to a "public shareholder" and not to a "related party" as defined in the JSE Limited Listings Requirements.

The Issue Shares have been issued at a 4.6% discount to the 30-day volume weighted average price of SacOil Shares as traded on the exchange operated by the JSE Limited ("the JSE") for the 30 business days immediately prior to the suspension of trading of the SacOil Shares on the JSE and AIM Market ("AIM") of the London Stock Exchange ("LSE") on 31 May 2013.

The Cash Issue has been implemented in terms of the general authority granted to SacOil's directors to issue shares for cash, which was approved by SacOil shareholders at the Company's general meeting held on 30 May 2013, and in compliance with the limitations related thereto. The Issue Shares rank pari passu with the existing SacOil Shares in issue.

3.       Application of proceeds of the Cash Issue

The proceeds of the Cash Issue will be utilised to fund the Company's working capital requirements.
