ANNOUNCEMENT OF INTENTION TO FLOAT ON THE LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE AND THE HONG KONG STOCK EXCHANGE

 

Glencore International plc ("Glencore" or the "Company") today announces its intention to proceed with an initial public offering ("IPO") of ordinary shares (the "Global Offer").

 

Glencore intends to apply for Admission of its ordinary shares to the premium listing segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and primary listing on the main market of the London Stock Exchange, and a secondary listing of its ordinary shares on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Glencore is a leading integrated producer and marketer of commodities with worldwide activities in the marketing of metals and minerals, energy products and agricultural products as well as the production, refinement, processing, storage and transport of these products.

 

Transaction Overview

Transaction highlights include:

·      The Global Offer is expected to comprise the issue of new ordinary shares by the Company and the sale of existing ordinary shares by certain existing shareholders solely to cover their expected individual tax liabilities and loans(i).

·      The Global Offer is expected to represent between 15 and 20 per cent of the Company's post-IPO issued share capital. Glencore is currently targeting an offering size of approximately US$9 billion to US$11 billion, comprising a primary component of approximately US$6.8 to US$8.8 billion, and the secondary sale by existing shareholders of approximately US$2.2 billion as mentioned above.

·      All existing shareholders will be subject to lock-up arrangements with effect from Admission.

·      Following discussions with FTSE, and based on its likely market capitalisation, Glencore is expected to enter the FTSE 100 at the close of business on the first day of trading on the London Stock Exchange under the fast entry rule - the first company in 25 years and only the third company ever to do so(ii).

·      Glencore's proposed new board will comprise Ivan Glasenberg and Steven Kalmin, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, respectively, as Executive Directors, an Independent Non-Executive Chairman to be announced shortly, Anthony Hayward as Senior Independent Director, and Peter Coates, Leonhard Fischer, William Macaulay and Li Ning as Independent Non-Executive Directors.

·      The Company intends to apply the proceeds of the Global Offer towards increasing its ownership in JSC Kazzinc ("Kazzinc"); funding its capital expenditure for the next three years, including expansion projects; and reducing drawings and/or repaying various debt obligations of the Glencore group.

·      Once listed, Glencore intends to pursue a progressive dividend policy with the intention of maintaining or increasing its total ordinary dividend each year. Interim dividends are expected to represent approximately one third of the total dividend for any year. The Directors currently expect to declare an interim dividend of US$350 million in August 2011 concurrent with publication of the interim results for the six months to 30 June 2011. This equates to a full-year dividend of over US$1 billion.

·      The Global Offer is expected to be completed in May 2011.

 

Glencore Highlights

Glencore is a leading integrated producer and marketer of commodities. The Company is active in every step of the supply chain in metals and minerals, energy and agricultural products. Glencore produces, sources, processes, refines, transports, stores, finances and supplies commodities used by the world's industries.

Glencore employs approximately 54,800 people in its industrial assets in over 30 countries. A further 2,700 people are employed in Glencore's marketing operations, in a global network of more than 50 offices in over 40 countries.

Glencore believes that it is:

·      The world's largest physical supplier of third-party sourced commodities in the majority of the metals and minerals it markets.

·      Among the world's largest non-integrated physical suppliers of crude oil and oil products.

·      The world's largest participant in the supply of seaborne steam coal.

·      Among the world's leading physical suppliers of third-party sourced sugar.

·      One of the leading exporters of grain from Europe, the CIS and Australia.

Glencore's success has been built upon a unique combination of competitive strengths, notably:

·      Scale and leading market shares in commodity marketing globally: Glencore has significant market share positions in the addressable markets for its products - i.e. the volumes generally accessible to a third-party marketer.

·      Core competence in commodity marketing, logistics, risk management and financing: Glencore has built a strong reputation over decades as a reliable supplier of quality products on a timely basis. Extensive global market knowledge, insight and full logistics capabilities enable it to generate value-added margins and capitalise on commodity arbitrage opportunities.

·      Investments in high-quality, low-cost extraction and processing operations with strong growth prospects: Glencore owns interests in many high-quality extraction and processing assets including Prodeco (coal), Katanga (copper and cobalt), Kazzinc (zinc, copper, lead, gold and silver) and oil exploration and production assets in West Africa, and has stakes in some of the world's leading publicly quoted commodity producers including Xstrata plc and UC RUSAL.

·     Marketer with integrated production and processing capabilities: Glencore regards its ownership of industrial assets not just as a source of self-produced commodities, but also as a tool to increase flexibility, optionality, security of supply and to gain market insight.

·      Diversified across multiple commodities, suppliers and customers: Glencore markets a range of over 90 distinct commodities from a diverse supply base to a diverse customer base.

·     Track-record of value creation by a world-class management team: With a proven track-record of developing and growing the business, Glencore has been consistently profitable since the management buyout in 1994 and, over the last 10 years, generated an average annual return on equity of 38%. Glencore senior management has more than 200 years aggregate experience working together, yet an average age of just 46.

·      Resilient financial performance of marketing: Glencore believes the financial performance of its marketing activities is less correlated to commodity prices than its industrial activities. This lower correlation makes Glencore's earnings less volatile than those of equivalent pure commodity producers that do not enjoy the full benefits of complete supply chain and third-party marketing.

·     Significant barriers to entry: Glencore's scale, global reach and solid track record present significant barriers to sustainable competitive entry into the global physical commodity marketing industry, which requires, amongst other attributes, substantial access to credit markets and a global network which supports the assembly of logistics and risk management capabilities and strong producer relationships.

 

Ivan Glasenberg, Glencore's Chief Executive Officer, said today:

"Over many decades, we have developed Glencore into an unrivalled global integrated commodity producer and marketer, active in almost every bulk commodity market. An IPO is the next logical step in our development and strategy. It will provide us with the financial flexibility to capitalise upon long-term growth opportunities throughout our business and achieve further sustainable growth. It will also offer international investors an opportunity to invest in our unique commodities business model and participate in our future growth."

Glencore conducts its operations in three business segments:

1.   Metals and Minerals

Glencore's business segments are responsible for managing the marketing, sourcing, hedging, logistics and industrial investment activities relating to the commodities they cover.

Glencore's Strategy

Continue to leverage geographic scope and diversification of operations: Glencore intends to build upon its position as one of the world's largest physical commodity suppliers and its track record of extending product and geographical range by continuing to target market share increases in the geographies in which it currently operates and further expansion in emerging markets.

Capitalise on strategic investments in industrial assets: Glencore's strategic investments in industrial assets are an important component of its physical sourcing strategy for its marketing activities, and Glencore believes these investments provide a competitive advantage over its peers which are less vertically integrated, both upstream and downstream.

Use additional capital and liquidity to grow the business: Glencore believes the Global Offer will provide it with the financial resources needed to move it to the next stage of its development and achieve further sustainable growth.

Focus on cost management and further enhancing logistical capabilities: Glencore intends to continue its focus on cost control and operational efficiencies at the industrial assets it controls, and maintain its focus on the sourcing of competitively priced physical commodities from reliable third-party suppliers.

Maintain conservative financial profile and investment grade ratings: Glencore's conservative financial profile and investment grade credit ratings have enabled it consistently to access the bank and international debt capital markets on competitive terms to obtain required funding and maintain healthy levels of liquidity. Glencore intends to continue to manage its financial position around maintaining investment grade credit ratings.

Disciplined risk management:Glencore intends to continue its focus on this key area by maintaining and expanding its centralised risk management resources and information systems.

Continue to place the highest priority on employees, the environment and local communities: Glencore is committed to the safety of its employees, minimising its impact on the environment and respecting its neighbours.

Acquisition of Additional Stakes in Kazzinc

Glencore has agreed to purchase additional stakes in Kazzinc from its local partners. These purchases will increase its ownership from 50.7% to 93.0% for a total transaction consideration of US$3.2 billion, comprising US$1.0 billion in new Glencore shares, at the IPO price (to be completed and issued on the earliest of Admission and satisfaction of applicable conditions precedent), and US$2.2 billion in cash (to be paid in tranches between October and December 2011). It should be noted that these purchases are subject to various conditions precedent, including the completion by Glencore of an IPO and certain regulatory approvals. In addition, Glencore's stake in Kazzinc may be further increased to 99.4% through the exercise of a put or call option to acquire a further 6.4% interest in Kazzinc, which is conditional on, amongst other things, an initial public offering of Kazzinc's gold assets.

Board Composition

Glencore's new board will be fully compliant with the UK Corporate Governance Code upon Admission. The board will comprise six Independent Non-Executive Directors (including the new Chairman and a Senior Independent Director) and two Executive Directors.

Glencore has made its decision regarding the new Chairman and is in the final stages of making the appointment, which will be communicated shortly.

Glencore's board will furthermore comprise Ivan Glasenberg and Steven Kalmin, the Glencore Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer respectively, as Executive Directors, and Anthony Hayward as Senior Independent Non-Executive Director, and Peter Coates, Leonhard Fischer, William Macaulay and Li Ning as Independent Non-Executive Directors.

 

Health, Safety and Environment

Glencore is committed to conducting its business activities in a manner that will safeguard the health and safety of all employees and protect the environment. Glencore has HSE policies and management programmes in place to manage and ensure compliance as well as to track and improve overall performance with the applicable local and international HSE laws and regulations. Glencore's HSE policies and management systems are embedded into the Glencore Corporate Practice programme. Glencore intends to publish an annual sustainability report that details its performance on these commitments.

 

Summary of the Global Offer

In aggregate the shares issued and sold in the Global Offer are expected to represent between 15 and 20 per cent of the Company's post-IPO issued share capital. Glencore is currently targeting a total offering size of approximately US$9 billion to US$11 billion comprising a primary component of approximately US$6.8 to US$8.8 billion, and the secondary sale by existing shareholders of approximately US$2.2 billion solely to fund expected shareholder tax liabilities triggered upon Admission and to fund repayment of a small tranche of loans extended by Glencore to certain of its existing shareholders.

Glencore believes the Global Offer will assist in positioning the Company for the next stage of its development by increasing financial flexibility, providing further resources to invest in organic and acquisition growth, enhancing the profile of the Company with existing and potential suppliers and customers, and providing the Company with a permanent equity capital base.

The Company intends to apply the proceeds from the Global Offer in the following order of priority:

·      Use of approximately US$2.2 billion of the net proceeds from the Global Offer towards meeting the cash portion of the consideration payable in respect of the proposed acquisition of the additional stakes in Kazzinc.

·      Use of approximately US$5 billion of the net proceeds from the Global Offer towards meeting its budgeted total aggregate capital expenditure for the next three calendar years (ending 31 December 2013). Items falling within this include the funding of significant expansion projects in respect of Kazzinc, Mopani, Prodeco and various oil E&P assets in West Africa.

·      To use a portion of any proceeds that are not immediately required for the aforementioned purposes to reduce drawings under the US$10,260 million revolving credit facilities and repay various other debt obligations of the Glencore group and thereby to reduce its cost of borrowing and improve its financial flexibility. Should growth opportunities arise in the future, Glencore could either draw-down any remaining facilities or put in place new facilities.

 

The Company has entered into a lock-up arrangement in favour of the Joint Global Co-ordinators for a period of 180 days from the date of Admission. In addition, each existing shareholder has entered into a lock-up arrangement in favour of the Joint Global Co-ordinators and the Company for various periods from the date of Admission. These lock-up arrangements apply in the case of the Executive Directors until five years after Admission (with a staggered release after the first year of that period) and in the case of the other existing shareholders for a period of time of between one year and four years from Admission (with a staggered release after the first year of that period, if applicable). The lock-up arrangements are subject to certain customary exceptions. 

 

Full details of the Global Offer will be included in the prospectus to be published by the Company in due course. Subject to market conditions, the Global Offer is expected to close in May 2011.

Citigroup Global Markets U.K. Equity Limited, Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited and Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc are acting as Joint Global Co-ordinators and Joint Bookrunners.

Further Information on Glencore

Glencore conducts its operations through three business segments:

·     The Metals and Minerals business segment focuses on the following commodity departments: zinc/copper/lead, alumina/aluminium and ferroalloys/nickel/cobalt/iron ore. The business segment also markets some gold, silver, tin and other by-products such as sulphuric acid. The activities of Glencore's Metals and Minerals business segment are supported by ownership interests in controlled and non-controlled industrial assets such as mining, smelting, refining and warehousing operations.

·     The Energy Products business segment focuses on the following commodity departments: oil/oil products and coal/coke. The activities of Glencore's Energy Products business segment are supported by ownership interests in controlled and non-controlled coal mining and oil exploration and production operations as well as investments in strategic handling, storage and freight equipment and facilities.

·     The Agricultural Products business segment focuses on the following commodities: grains (including wheat, maize and barley), oils/oilseeds, cotton and sugar. The activities of Glencore's Agricultural Products business segment are supported by investments in controlled and non-controlled storage, handling, processing and port facilities in strategic locations.

Glencore's business segments are responsible for managing the marketing, sourcing, hedging, logistics and industrial investment activities relating to the commodities which they cover.

Glencore's marketing and industrial investment activities are supported by a global network of more than 50 offices located in over 40 countries throughout Europe, North, Central and South America, the CIS, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East. Glencore's main offices are located in Baar (Switzerland), Stamford (Connecticut), London, Rotterdam, Beijing, Moscow and Singapore. This network provides Glencore with significant worldwide sourcing and distribution capabilities.

Glencore has an established record of successful strategic investments in industrial assets which have become an important component of its physical marketing activities. Glencore intends to continue to pursue selective strategic acquisitions and alliances to support and strengthen its core physical marketing activities as and when opportunities arise. Glencore evaluates each industrial asset investment opportunity on a stand-alone basis, however also recognising its potential to support and strengthen Glencore's physical marketing activities or existing industrial coverage. Similarly, Glencore evaluates disposals of investments in industrial assets when they are no longer deemed to support its marketing activities and/or when compelling selling opportunities arise.

Marketing Activities

Functions of the marketing activities

Glencore's marketing activities source a diversified range of physical commodities from third-party suppliers and from industrial assets in which Glencore has full or part ownership interests. These commodities are sold, often with value-added services such as freight, insurance, financing and/or storage, to a broad range of consumers and industrial commodity end-users, with many of whom Glencore enjoys long-term commercial relationships. As a marketer, Glencore is able to differentiate itself from other production entities as, in addition to focusing on minimising costs and maximising operational efficiencies, Glencore focuses on maximising returns from the entire supply chain, taking into account its extensive and global third-party supply base, its logistics, risk management and working capital financing capabilities, extensive market insight, business optionality, extensive customer base, strong market position and penetration in most commodities and economies of scale. In contrast, this is not the business model of Glencore's mainly industrial competitors who are generally not set up to exploit the full range of value added margin and arbitrage opportunities which exist throughout the commodity supply chain.

Types of arbitrage strategies

Many of the physical commodity markets in which Glencore operates are fragmented or periodically volatile. As a result, discrepancies generally arise in respect of the prices at which the commodities can be physically bought or sold in different geographic locations or time periods, taking into account the numerous relevant pricing factors, including freight and product quality. These pricing discrepancies can present Glencore with arbitrage opportunities whereby Glencore is able to generate profit by sourcing, transporting, blending, storing or otherwise processing the relevant commodities. Whilst the strategies used by Glencore's business segments to generate such margin vary from commodity to commodity, the main arbitrage strategies can be generally described as being:

·     Geographic - where Glencore leverages its relationships and production, processing and logistical capabilities in order to source physical commodities from one location and deliver them to another location, where such commodities can command a higher price (net of transport and/or other transaction costs);

·      Product-related - where it is possible to exploit the blending or multi-use characteristics of the particular commodities being marketed, such as the various crude oil products, coal or concentrates, in order to supply products which attract higher prices than their base constituents, or exploit existing and/or expected price differentials; and

·      Time-related - where it is possible to exploit a difference between the price of a commodity to be delivered at a future date and the price of a commodity to be delivered immediately, where the available storage, financing and other related costs until the future date are less than the forward pricing difference.

Glencore uses market information made available by its marketing and industrial teams across its many locations to identify arbitrage opportunities. Glencore's marketing and investment activities and relationships with producers and consumers of raw materials are supported by a global network of more than 50 offices providing sourcing and distribution capabilities located in over 40 countries throughout Europe, North, Central and South America, the CIS, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East. This network provides Glencore with visibility over shifting supply and demand dynamics in respect of significant volumes of physical commodities across the globe. The detailed information from Glencore's widespread operations and close relationships with producers, consumers and logistics providers is available to Glencore's marketing operations and often enables them to identify opportunities, taking into account Glencore's extensive logistics capabilities, to source and supply physical commodities at attractive margins.

 

Industrial Activities

Glencore's ownership of controlled and non-controlled industrial assets is seen as both a source of potential and desirable standalone financial returns and overall business diversification, complemented by their very useful source of physical commodities into Glencore's marketing arm and access to further market insight and technical know-how. Glencore believes that its corresponding reduced reliance on third parties helps to ensure that suppliers and customers alike see Glencore as a very reliable, and therefore desirable, counterparty, given its integrated business model.

Glencore capitalises on investment opportunities created by, among other things, (i) the privatisation of natural resources producers primarily in emerging markets (ii) the rebalancing of asset portfolios by other players in the natural resources industry and (iii) further industry consolidation as smaller producers sell out and/or seek capital to fund growth. Any decision to acquire or dispose of an industrial asset is based on the stand-alone potential of the asset and its potential contribution to Glencore's marketing activities, and requires group level approval. Once acquired, an asset is held within one of the business segments (the only major exception to this is Xstrata, which is held in corporate with the assets relevant to both the Metals and Minerals and Energy Products business segments). The business segments manage the controlled and non-controlled industrial assets via hands-on "asset controllers" to interface between the asset and Glencore in respect of day to day operating, financial and commercial matters. Glencore's approach to the management of its industrial assets differs from some of its key competitors in that Glencore encourages its industrial assets to focus primarily on operating performance, which those businesses can largely control and influence, leaving Glencore to handle marketing and distribution activities as part of its integrated global system.

Any purchase of Ordinary Shares in the proposed Global Offer should be made solely on the basis of the information contained in the final Price Range Prospectus to be issued by Glencore in connection with the Global Offer, except that any purchase by members of the public in Hong Kong should be made solely on the basis of the information contained in a prospectus to be issued by Glencore in connection with the Hong Kong public offer (being part of the Global Offer) that is authorised by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange for registration by the Registrar of Companies under the Companies Ordinance (Cap.32 of the Laws of Hong Kong) and has been so registered. No reliance may or should be placed by any person for any purposes whatsoever on the information contained in this announcement or on its completeness, accuracy or fairness. The information in this announcement is subject to change.

The dates of Admission may be influenced by things such as market conditions. There is no guarantee that the Global Offer and Admission will occur and you should not base your financial decisions on Glencore's intentions in relation to the Global Offer and Admission at this stage. Acquiring investments to which this announcement relates may expose an investor to a significant risk of losing all of the amount invested. Persons considering investment in such investments should consult an authorised person specialising in advising on such investments. Information in this announcement or any of the documents relating to the Global Offer cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance. This announcement does not constitute a recommendation concerning the Global Offer.

The value of Ordinary Shares can decrease as well as increase. Potential investors should consult a professional advisor as to the suitability of the Global Offer for the person concerned.

The Banks, each of which are authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FSA, are acting exclusively for Glencore and no-one else in connection with the Global Offer. They will not regard any other person as their respective clients in relation to the Global Offer and will not be responsible to anyone other than Glencore for providing the protections afforded to their respective clients, nor for providing advice in relation to the Global Offer, the contents of this announcement or any transaction, arrangement or other matter referred to herein.

In connection with the Global Offer, each of the Banks and any of their affiliates, acting as investors for their own accounts, may subscribe for or purchase Ordinary Shares  and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for their own accounts in such Ordinary Shares and other securities of the Company or related investments in connection with the Global Offer or otherwise, provided that, in relation to Ordinary Shares to be registered and traded in Hong Kong, the Banks shall be entitled to undertake or conduct any or all of the foregoing activities where they are not prevented or restricted by applicable law or regulation from doing so. Accordingly, references in the Price Range Prospectus and the prospectus to be issued in connection with the Hong Kong public offer, once published, to the Ordinary Shares being issued, offered, subscribed, acquired, placed or otherwise dealt in should be read as including any issue or offer to, or subscription, acquisition, placing or dealing by any of the Banks and any of their affiliates acting as investors for their own accounts. The Banks do not intend to disclose the extent of any such investment or transactions otherwise than in accordance with any legal or regulatory obligations to do so.

None of the Banks or any of their respective directors, officers, employees, advisers or agents accepts any responsibility or liability whatsoever for/or makes any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the truth, accuracy or completeness of the information in this announcement (or whether any information has been omitted from the announcement) or any other information relating to the Company, its subsidiaries or associated companies, whether written, oral or in a visual or electronic form, and howsoever transmitted or made available or for any loss howsoever arising from any use of announcement  or its contents or otherwise arising in connection therewith.

In connection with the Global Offer, the Stabilisation Manager , or any of its agents, may (but will be under no obligation to), to the extent permitted by applicable law, over-allot Ordinary Shares or effect other transactions with a view to supporting the market price of the Ordinary Shares at a higher level than that which might otherwise prevail in the open market. The Stabilisation Manager is not required to enter into such transactions and such transactions may be effected on any stock market, over-the-counter market, stock exchange or otherwise and may be undertaken at any time during the period commencing on the date of the commencement of conditional dealings of the Ordinary Shares on the London Stock Exchange and ending no later than 30 calendar days thereafter (or, in respect of any stabilisation action undertaken in Hong Kong, ending at such time in accordance with applicable laws and regulatory requirements) . However, there will be no obligation on the Stabilisation Manager or any of its agents to effect stabilising transactions and there is no assurance that stabilising transactions will be undertaken. Such stabilising measures, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time without prior notice. In no event will measures be taken to stabilise the market price of the Ordinary Shares above the offer price. The details of any intended stabilisation to be undertaken in Hong Kong and how it will be regulated under the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap.571 of the Laws of Hong Kong) will be contained in a prospectus to be issued by Glencore in connection with the Hong Kong public offer that has been registered with the Registrar of Companies in Hong Kong. Save as required by law or regulation, neither the Stabilisation Manager nor any of its agents intends to disclose the extent of any over-allotments made and/or stabilisation transactions conducted in relation to the Global Offer.

In connection with the Global Offer, the Stabilisation Manager may, for stabilisation purposes, over-allot Ordinary Shares up to a maximum of 10 per cent of the total number of Ordinary Shares comprised in the Global Offer. For the purposes of allowing it to cover short positions resulting from any such over-allotments and/or from sales of Ordinary Shares effected by it during the stabilisation period, the Stabilisation Manager will enter into over-allotment arrangements pursuant to which the Stabilisation Manager may purchase or procure purchasers for additional Ordinary Shares up to a maximum of 10 per cent of the total number of Ordinary Shares comprised in the Global Offer (the "Over Allotment Shares") at the offer price. The over-allotment arrangements will be exercisable in whole or in part, upon notice by the Stabilisation Manager, at any time on or before the 30th calendar day after the commencement of conditional trading of the Ordinary Shares on the London Stock Exchange (or, in respect of any over-allotment arrangement taking place in Hong Kong, before such time in accordance with the applicable laws and regulatory requirements). Any Over Allotment Shares will be purchased on the same terms and conditions as the Ordinary Shares being issued or sold in the Global Offer and will form a single class for all purposes with the other Ordinary Shares.

Note: certain figures in this announcement have been rounded. Accordingly, in certain instances, the sum or percentage change of the numbers contained in this announcement may not conform exactly with the total figure given.
