AMS Seeks To List South African Mines

Anglo American Platinum Limited (JSE:AMS) will spin off South African mines it has been seeking to dispose of into a separately listed company, according to the UASA labor union. AMS told the union of its decision June 17, 2015, Franz Stehring, head of mining at the UASA, said by phone. The organization mainly represents higher-skilled workers at the mining company. A listing will take about nine months to complete, he said. AMS is seeking to exit four aging, labor-intensive mines in South Africa amid a 39% plunge in platinum prices since 2011. Amplats has previously said it’s still deciding whether to sell the mines or list them separately. “We’ll be making an announcement this quarter on which exit route we will be taking,” Mpumi Sithole, spokeswoman of AMS, said by phone.

Anglo American Platinum Limited Provides Earnings Guidance for the Six Months Ending 30 June 2015

Anglo American Platinum announced that headline earnings and headline earnings per share for the six months ended 30 June 2015 will be at least 20% (ZAR 31 million or 12 cents per share) higher than the comparative reporting period for the six months ended 30 June 2014. Headline earnings and HEPS for the comparative period were ZAR 157 million and 60 cents respectively. Basic earnings and basic earnings per share will also be at least 20% (ZAR 86 million or 33 cents per share) higher than the comparative period. Basic earnings and EPS for the comparative period were ZAR 429 million and 164 cents respectively. The increase in headline earnings and basic earnings is primarily due to the improvement in operational performance following the protected industrial action in the comparative period.

Anglo American Platinum Mulls IPO For South African Mines

Anglo American Platinum Limited (JSE:AMS) is seeking IPO for South African mines. “Anglo American Platinum is considering floating its labour-intensive South African mines around Rustenburg on the stock market rather than selling them because the offers it has received are too low,” a company and banking source said on June 12, 2015. "It is definitely on the table now because the offers that are coming in just aren't high enough," one senior Amplats source, who did not wish to be named, told Reuters. One Johannesburg-based investment banker also said the company had received a few offers for its Union Mine and three others near Rustenburg but had thrown them into the dustbin because they were too low.
