South Africa approves Anglo takeover of De Beers

12 april 2012

South Africa's competition authority has given an unconditional go-ahead to Anglo American's buy-out of De Beers from the Oppenheimer family.
"The tribunal just approved the transaction without conditions," an unnamed spokesperson for the Competition Tribunal was quoted as saying by Fin24.
The deal was widely expected to be approved after the European Commission had also allowed the buyout to go ahead early last month.
The deal initially announced in November, would see Anglo American buy 40 percent of the unlisted diamond miner from South Africa's Oppenheimer family for $5.1bn.
The transaction would end the involvement of the Oppenheimer family in De Beers, and take Anglo American's stake to up to 85 percent.
However, the government of Botswana owns the remaining 15 percent of De Beers and has an option to lift this to 25 percent.
Finalisation of the deal was expected in the second half of this year.
