Case Study

Sasol transaction review

JLL was appointed by Sasol to assist with a deal review and critique of their new head office development in Sandton.
Customised solution

Our initial task was to review and comment on the process that had been adopted in determining the preferred property solution and to provide an opinion on the commercial merits of the transaction. In addition, we highlighted potential opportunities where financial savings could be delivered, as well as areas which posed potential risks to Sasol within the proposed deal.

Based on our report and findings, we were subsequently engaged to negotiate the lease and development agreements in conjunction with the Sasol legal team.


As a result of the negotiation and amendment to the initially proposed terms of the development and lease agreements, JLL achieved significant financial savings for Sasol and reduced their risk from an operational perspective. The relevant stakeholders were satisfied that the transaction was commercially sound and that the long term tenancy interests of Sasol had been protected.
