BHP Billiton (BHP) and Anglo American (AAUKY) are looking to sell their jointly owned portfolio of manganese assets in South Africa and Australia, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. BHP owns 60% and Anglo owns 40% of two mines in South Africa, one in Australia, and processing plants in both countries. Macquarie Analyst Jeff Largey's valuation of Anglo's 40% stake implies a full valuation of $1.33B for the manganese assets, the Wall Street Journal added. Reference Link

The company says, "Having defined our portfolio and significantly improved operational performance, now is the right time to accelerate the right-sizing of the organization that supports the future business; we are targeting a $500M total cost saving, of which $300M will be realised from our ongoing core business, through the reduction of 6,000 overhead and other indirect roles, a 46% decrease, including those that will transfer with the businesses we are divesting. Post asset sales, we expect to have reduced our number of assets from 55 to 40 and reduced total employees by 35%, while maintaining copper equivalent production. As a result, and following the asset disposals and further business improvement, our underlying EBITDA margin of 25% in the first half of 2015 would increase to 35% on a like for like basis, representing a 40% improvement off a substantially lower cost base." Looking to the balance of this year and into next, the company expects that the current period of volatile markets and economic uncertainty, fueled in part by pockets of geopolitical tension, to continue.
