Rio Tinto Denies Glencore Takeover Approach

The board of Rio Tinto plc (LSE:RIO) notes the recent press speculation regarding a possible combination of Rio Tinto and Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN). The Rio Tinto board confirms that no discussions are taking place with Glencore. In July 2014, Glencore contacted Rio Tinto regarding a potential merger. The Rio Tinto board after consultation with its financial and legal advisors concluded unanimously that a combination was not in the best interests of Rio Tinto’s shareholders. The board’s rejection was communicated to Glencore in early August 2014 and there has been no further contact between the companies on this matter.
