Anglo American plc has announced the sale of the group’s remaining 8.0% shareholding in Thungela Resources Ltd.
The sale has been completed through an accelerated book build placing to a number of major financial institutions, realising gross proceeds of R1672 million (approximately US$115 million). The Thungela shares were placed at a price of R154 per share, representing a 12% discount to the closing share price on 24 March 2022 and a 4% discount to the closing share price on 23 March 2022.
At the time of the demerger of Thungela to Anglo American’s shareholders, which completed in June 2021, Anglo American stated its intention to dispose of its remaining interest in Thungela over time and in a responsible manner, subject to market conditions and not within the first six months following the demerger.
Following the end of that six month period in December 2021 and the end of Thungela’s closed period following the announcement of its 2021 results on 22 March 2022, Anglo American launched and completed the sale of its remaining shares and no longer holds any shares in Thungela.
