Sasol is making progress, “albeit slower than initially anticipated,” in the sale of its 50% share in Iranian polymer producer Arya Sasol Polymer, Sasol Chief Financial Officer Christine Ramon told analysts recently. Sasol has signed a memorandum of understanding with an unnamed buyer, Ramon said. The South African firm has been seeking a buyer for its stake in Arya Sasol since late 2011.
