Neal Froneman, Sibanye-Stillwater CEO

The Board of Sibanye-Stillwater is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with the Lonmin Board on the terms of a recommended all-share offer pursuant to which Sibanye-Stillwater, will acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Lonmin.

It is proposed that the Offer will be effected by means of a scheme of arrangement between Lonmin and the Lonmin Shareholders under Part 26 of the UK Companies Act.

“The proposed combination with Lonmin positions the Enlarged Sibanye-Stillwater Group as a leading mine-to-market producer of PGMs in South Africa. The realisation of significant synergies between the operations, which will deliver longer term benefits for all stakeholders of both companies is expected to result in this being a value accretive transaction for Sibanye-Stillwater Shareholders. The flexibility inherent in the larger regional PGM footprint, will create a more robust business, better able to withstand volatile PGM prices and exchange rates. Furthermore, the sizeable combined resource base, with its pipeline of advanced and early stage projects, also offers significant growth and value upside potential under appropriate economic and market circumstances,” says Neal Froneman, Sibanye-Stillwater Chief Executive Officer.
