Anglo’s New Chairman May Reconsider Merger Plan, Xstrata Says

09 july 2009

Anglo American Plc, the mining company that rejected a proposed merger by Xstrata Plc, may reconsider the plan after finding a new chairman, Xstrata’s general manager of strategy Thras Moraitis said, Bloomberg reported.
“There is a possibility that a new chairman could change the tone of this conversation,” Moraitis said in an interview in Johannesburg today. “Any new chairman would come into the job with the full knowledge that there is this proposal and will have to consult with his or her shareholders and board.”
Anglo, which will replace retiring Chairman Sir Mark Moody- Stuart, last month dismissed a merger that Xstrata said may unlock $1 billion of synergies. Anglo is considering candidates including Jim Leng, previously offered the position of chairman by Rio Tinto Plc, and National Grid Plc’s Sir John Parker, London’s Sunday Times newspaper reported on June 28.
British American Tobacco Plc Chairman Jan de Plessis took over as chairman of Rio Tinto Group on April 20, changing “the whole tone” of its relationship with suitor BHP Billiton Plc, Moraitis said. “They did a deal within weeks.”
Xstrata also expects Anglo shareholders to encourage the company to reexamine the proposal, he said, adding a merged entity may gain a South African listing to retain local support.
“Our intention is to retain the rights of all South African shareholders,” Moraitis said. “That’s likely to mean a JSE listing.” South African foreign-exchange controls hinder local investors from owning shares in foreign companies.
