Problem reported - hopefully back soon
ferrex listed today|
They appear to be a private comapny at the moment?|
|good luck to all...
|Selftrade have now credited my account.
GL with your future investments
I have a note to look at Ruukki in 2 years time when they are about to commission smelters/power plant. Still think they have got a bargain - I guess it will all depend on FeCr prices over the next 10-20 years.
|Selftrade posted notification this afternoon that funds will be "credited shortly" whatever that means?
This week hopefully
|Does anyone know when we get paid?|

|Looks like Xtrata are another major investing in SA FeCr. Does suggest that demand is expected to increase significantly. I see from the press release below that they are investing $100m in their chromite mines.
And how much are Ruukki paying for Chromex's 1mT/annum RoM assets ........... circa $55m
Johannesburg, 20 October 2010
Xstrata plc ("Xstrata") has approved the development of the second phase of its Lion ferrochrome complex expansion in South Africa. The expansion will involve the construction and commissioning of a 360,000 tonne per annum capacity smelter and will increase the Xstrata-Merafe chrome venture's ("the Venture") total ferrochrome capacity to over 2.3 million tonnes per annum. The project has met all of Xstrata's key value and risk metrics for some three years since it was first considered. However, the absence of security of supply of electricity resulted in the project's approval being held in abeyance until a firm allocation of capacity was received by Eskom for the second phase of the Lion complex. In addition, emerging plans within Xstrata Alloys for an "own generation" capability further reduces Xstrata's concerns on the availability of electricity by the time this plant is commissioned.
The development will entail a total capital investment of R4.9 billion (US$710 million) and includes R700 million (US$100 million) for the concurrent development of the 1.2 million ROM tonne per annum Magareng mine within the Thorncliffe mine complex. Construction is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2011, with commissioning planned for the first half of 2013. The expansion will create over 1,000 permanent jobs and a further 1,800 jobs will be generated during the construction phase. Around 80% of the total expenditure on project goods and services will be sourced locally.|
|Offer document posted today
Deadline for acceptances 1pm - 8 Nov but likely to be earlier in nominee accounts
Very short period - I wonder why!
Time to make a move Mr Nerurkar or anyone else who wants a bargain. I've not given up on you yet!
Bet there will be some chatter at the World Chromium Forum in China on Thursday/Friday this week.
|Interesting and current presentation from Merafe Oct 10 available via this link
Slide36 - Barriers to entry including "Shortage of available quality ore reserves"
Slide 43 - Indian companies moving out of India eg Tata to South Africa
Slide 44 - Global ore demand vs supply shortfall from 2012|
|36.5p is not enough for me
|well, i'm still here. even without a counter offer the 1.25p between current
bid and the ruukki offer is worth the wait..|
|Press reports that ore supplies currently tight. - But you can buy 40mT for a miserly £1/tonne! Come on Mr Nerurkar - don't you read this thread?!|
|From trade press:
Ruukki announced a cash takeover offer for Chromex
(Ryan' s Notes, Sept. 20, p2) by a newly formed subsidiary,
Synergy Africa, a company 51% and 49% owned by Kermas
Ltd. The offer values Chromex at approximately £37-million
and represents a premium of 82.5% to the closing price of 20
pence per Chromex share on July 14.
Commenting on the offer, Alwyn Smit, CEO of Ruukki,
said: "The acquisition of Chromex is a logical transaction as
it achieves all three of our strategic objectives; it completes
the vertical integration of our South African business, it
increases our production capacity and it expands our market
share. By acquiring an accessible, sizeable resource base and
a producing mine at Stellite, we are consolidating our pres-
ence in one of the world's premier chromite mining regions,
adding immediate value to our existing operations and lay-
ing the foundations for future growth. Looking ahead to the
medium term, Chromex provides a critical building block for
our processing growth plans, particularly the construction of
two 70-MW DC furnaces, which will have a planned com-
bined annual capacity of up to 280,000 mt, and we will be
examining the opportunity for building these DC furnaces at
Ruukki's major South African chrome asset, Mogale, lacks
a secure source of feed and wanted to increase its use of UG2
to make up for a lack of lumpy material.|
|I'm guessing that Synergy are taking everything on offer at 35-35.5 as expected. Looks like they have taken 3-4% so far unless it is someone else.
Anyway just wanted to say - you had better get a move on Mr Nerurkar!
|Not much to get excited about|
|agree with your thoughts, great homework, thanks for sharing|
