Industry Update: Glencore

8th Apr 2016

  • Glencore has confirmed a 40% sale in their agricultural products division to a pension fund (the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board) for US$2.5bn. The deal still has a few regulatory hurdles to clear with finalisation possible in late 2016.

  • The sale was prompted by the parent entity of Glencore wanting to reduce debt by the sale of assets. Presumably, this pension fund becomes a silent equity partner.

  • We do not expect any changes in your day to day dealings with Glencore in Australia.
