rio tinto plc (RIO1) Key Developments

Rio Tinto May Divest Assets

Rio Tinto plc (LSE:RIO) is letting go its energy chief and rolling its coal and uranium businesses into two other units, a move that could signal its intention to divest its coal assets.

Rio Tinto Cuts 800 Staff

Rio Tinto announced that it is preparing to shed as many as 800 staff and contractors from its WA iron ore division, extending the wave of cost-cutting and job losses in the WA iron ore industry. It is understood the cuts will primarily target technical and administrative roles, with some job losses likely in maintenance and other support positions on mine sites. The company is also likely to cut contracts for non-essential mine site work, which it started this year with the cancellation of jobs at its Pilbara operations. The company has cut jobs in some areas over the past year but its permanent workforce has remained relatively steady through its massive export expansion. It ended 2012 with a workforce of about 12,600 and exported 233 million tonnes of Pilbara iron ore. Last year, it shipped 24% more ore, or 288.3 million tonnes, with a workforce of about 12,500. It plans to ship about 330 million tonnes this year with a reduced workforce and 350 million tonnes a year by 2017.

Rio Tinto Announces New Cost-Cutting Measures Such as Streamlining its Product Groups and Corporate Functions

Rio Tinto announced new cost-cutting measures such as streamlining its product groups and corporate functions. As per the new arrangements, the mining company's asset portfolio will be condensed into four divisions of aluminium, copper and coal, diamonds and minerals, and iron ore. The new copper and coal division is expected to bring the company's coal operations in-line with the existing copper portfolio, while the aluminium and iron ore division will remain untouched. As part of an ongoing optimization programme, various key corporate functions will be modified to save money and improve effectiveness. The new arrangements will come into force with immediate effect, the company said.
