rio tinto plc (RIO) Key Developments

Rio Tinto Rejects Glencore's Merger Bid

Rio Tinto plc (LSE:RIO) has rejected merger bid from Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN). Glencore in July this year had contacted Rio Tinto regarding a potential merger of both the mining giants, which was rejected in August. "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," Rio Tinto said in a statement. "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," Rio Tinto said.

Rio Tinto To Sell Shares In Alucam Group

Rio Tinto plc (LSE:RIO) is planning to sell its shares in an aluminum smelter in Cameroon. Rio Tinto said that it would work with Cameroon's government to find a new investor in Alucam Group. "Rio Tinto Alcan is proud of its long participation in the Alucam Group over several decades. However, the Alucam Group's new business model no longer fits with our strategy," Rio Tinto said late on October 12, 2014. Rio Tinto Alcan and the government both have a 46.67% in Alucam Group.

Rio Tinto May Bid For Freeport-Mcmoran

Rio Tinto plc (LSE:RIO) may decide that its best defense against another takeover approach from Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN) is buying Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX). Rio said it’s better off going it alone, a deal for Freeport could help it ward off any further advances from Glencore. Eric Kinneberg, a spokesman for Freeport, said Freeport doesn’t comment on speculation. A representative for Rio declined to comment, reported Bloomberg.
