10:05 EDTRIOGlencore confirms no longer considering merger with Rio Tinto
Glencore notes the recent press speculation regarding a possible merger between Glencore and Rio Tinto. Glencore announces that in July it made an informal enquiry by telephone call to Rio Tinto, seeking to gauge whether there might be any interest at Rio Tinto in investigating some form of merger between the two companies. Rio Tinto responded that it was not interested in pursuing these discussions. Glencore confirms that it is no longer actively considering any possible merger transaction with, or offer for the shares of, Rio Tinto. As a consequence of this announcement, the Panel Executive has determined that Glencore is for a period of 6 months from the date of this announcement subject to Rule 2.8 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers in relation to Rio Tinto. Glencore however reserves its rights to make an offer in the future with the consent of the Takeover Panel, either with the recommendation of the Board of Rio Tinto, in the event of a third party offer for Rio Tinto, or in the event of a material change in circumstances.

The board of Rio Tinto notes the recent press speculation regarding a possible combination of Rio Tinto and Glencore. The Rio Tinto board confirms that no discussions are taking place with Glencore. In July 2014, Glencore contacted Rio Tinto regarding a potential merger of Rio Tinto and Glencore.

The board's rejection was communicated to Glencore in early August and there has been no further contact between the companies on this matter. Rio Tinto remains focused on the successful execution of its strategy, which the board of Rio Tinto is confident will continue to deliver significant and sustainable value for shareholders.
