Exxaro gains as Tronox sale prompts R4.5bn dividend

Exxaro raised about $474m after selling 22.4 million Tronox class A shares in October, leaving it with about 24% of the US company’s total voting shares. The coal miner considered issues including growth prospects, future capital commitments and debt repayment when deciding how to use the proceeds of the sale, it said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Following the evaluation of the group’s capital structure, the board of directors has resolved to pay a special dividend” out of income reserves, Exxaro said. The payout equates to R12.55 per Exxaro ordinary share.

“For future Tronox share disposals, the board of directors will continue to evaluate its funding requirements for future capital commitments, to repay debt and to return capital to shareholders,” the company said.
