Leucadia’s Top Holdings: Jefferies Group; Top Purchases: GLPW and WINN

November 30, 2010 | About:

The two men at the top of Leucadia National (NYSE:LUK) – Ian Cumming and Joseph Steinberg has accomplished something amazing for their fellow investors. Since the 1978, the firm has returned 28.5% per annum. There have been little activities in the past year or two, during the financial crisis and the aftermath.

That is until this morning, before this piece from AP:

Leucadia National Corp., a holding company for a wide range of businesses, said Tuesday it has agreed to sell its remaining stake in the Cobre Las Cruces copper mining project to Canada's Inmet Mining Corp. for about $480 million.

Under the deal, Leucadia will get $150 million in cash and 5.4 million in Inmet shares which the company values at about $330 million. An affiliate of Inmet will also take on $72 million in Las Cruces debt as part of the deal.

Leucadia expects to report a gain once the deal closes of about $280 million based on Inmet's closing share price on Monday.

The $280 million gain is no trivial amount for Leucadia, a company has a market cap of $6.3 billion.
