Glencore would commit €300 million in equity.

Glencore, Qatari fund to buy 19.5pc stake in Rosneft

BAAR, Switzerland, December 8, 2016

Glencore, a global natural resource company, is in final-stage negotiations to acquire, as part of a consortium with the Qatar Investment Authority a 19.5 per cent stake in Russia’s oil giant Rosneft for €10.5 billion ($11.3 billion).

Under the proposed arrangement, Glencore would commit €300 million in equity with the balance of the consideration for the acquisition of the shares to be provided by QIA and by non-recourse bank financing.

The other material terms of the proposed transaction for Glencore include:

•    New five- year offtake agreement with Rosneft representing a sizeable additional 220,000 bbls/day for the Glencore Marketing  business.

•    Additional opportunities, through a strategic partnership for further cooperation, including infrastructure, logistics and global trading.

•    Other than the economic exposure represented by the Glencore Equity, (amounting to a c. 0.54 per cent indirect equity interest in Rosneft), Glencore would not have any economic exposure to its interests in the shares.

•    Limited liability structure fully ring-fenced and non-recourse to Glencore apart from its €300 million equity contribution and the provision of certain guarantees, the risks of which would be fully indemnified by appropriate financial institutions

Once the transaction is entered into, it will be conditional on the subsequent finalisation of all relevant financing, guarantee and other agreements and would be expected to close in mid-December.

Glencore is one of the world’s largest global diversified natural resource companies and a major producer and marketer of more than 90 commodities.  The Group's operations comprise around 150 mining and metallurgical sites, oil production assets and agricultural facilities. – TradeArabia News Service
