Sibanye Gold finalises R13.5bn rights issue at 60% discount

The company will offer new shares at R11.28 each.

JOHANNESBURG – South Africa’s Sibanye Gold will tap shareholders for funds at a discount of 60% in a $1 billion rights issue, the mining company said on Thursday.

Sibanye will use the rights issue to repay a portion of a $2.65 billion loan facility it used to acquire US platinum producer Stillwater.

The company will offer new shares at R11.28 each, a discount of 60% to its closing price on May 17, it said in a statement.

Shares in Sibanye fell more than 6% after the announcement, but narrowed losses to 2.3% at R27.83 by 1003 GMT, compared with a 0.5% gain in the Johannesburg Securities Exchange’s gold mining index.

Sibanye, a portfolio of South African gold mines spun out of Gold Fields in 2013, has bought several platinum mines in its home market. Stillwater is its first foreign venture.
