Anglo American to sell phosphate unit to China Molybdenum
Anglo American on Thursday unveiled plans to sell one of its largest Brazilian businesses for $1.5bn in the largest deal by the UK-listed miner since it announced a restructuring plan.

The sale to China Molybdenum Co of Anglo’s niobium and phosphate mines is the start of the group’s bid to sell at least $3bn of assets this year to reinforce its balance sheet.

Mark Cutifani, chief executive, said the sale was “another positive step forward in the strategic reshaping” of Anglo.

The deal with China Molybdenum depends upon Chinese regulatory approval but Anglo said it had commitments from holders of 63 per cent of the Chinese group’s shares to support the transaction.

The company’s shares lost 75 per cent in 2015, though they have rebounded this year and are now down about 35 per cent over the past 12 months. Shares rose 2.8 per cent in London after the deal was announced.

Analysts at BMO Capital Markets said the $1.5bn price was “probably better than market expectations” and could put Anglo in a stronger negotiating position when selling other assets.

China Molybdenum has previously snapped up assets from mining majors, having bought Rio Tinto’s Northparkes copper mine in Australia in 2013.

Deutsche Bank and Barclays advised China Molybdenum. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley worked with Anglo.

英美资源集团(Anglo American)周四宣布计划将以15亿美元的价格,出售该集团在巴西一项大型产业。这是这家英国上市的矿业公司在宣布重组计划后进行的最大一笔交易。

英美资源集团此次向洛阳钼业(China Molybdenum Co)售出的是铌和磷酸盐矿,该集团计划今年至少出售30亿美元资产,以增强其资产负债表。

英美资源集团首席执行官马克?卡蒂芬尼(Mark Cutifani)表示这笔交易是该集团“向战略重整积极迈出的又一步”。

英美资源集团与洛阳钼业的这笔交易还有待中国监管部门的批准,但该集团表示,洛阳钼业63%股份持有者已承诺支持这笔交易。

英美资源集团股价在2015年跌去了75%,不过今年有所回升,目前一年内跌幅收缩至35%左右。这笔交易宣布后,该集团在伦敦市场的股价上涨了2.8%。

加拿大蒙特利尔银行资本市场(BMO Capital Markets)分析师表示,15万亿美元的交易价“可能高于市场预期”,而且将让英美资源集团在出售其他资产的谈判中更有底气。

洛阳钼业此前已有从采矿巨头抢购资产的经历。2013年该公司收购了力拓(Rio Tinto)在澳大利亚北帕克斯(Northparkes)的铜金矿。

为洛阳钼业提供咨询的为德意志银行(Deutsche Bank)和巴克莱(Barclays),英美资源集团的合作方为高盛(Goldman Sachs)和摩根士丹利(Morgan Stanley)。
