Agnelli Family Acquires 5.4% of Sibanye-Stillwater

The stock should appreciate on the New York Stock Exchange

March 13, 2018 | About:

Shares of Sibanye-Stillwater (NYSE:SBGL) are expected to jump on the New York Stock Exchange on the heels of an announcement that a prominent European investment company has acquired a 5.4% interest stake in the company.

Exor Investments now holds a 5.4% stake in Sibanye-Stillwater. Exor is a subsidary of EXOR N.V., whose top shareholder is Giovanni Agnelli B.V.

Exor has made an acquisition of a volume of 29,299,829 American Depository Shares. That computes to four Sibanye-Stillwater ordinary shares for each ADS.

Exor N.V. is a leading investment company in Europe with an investment history of over a century. Exor N.V. has a net asset value of more than $17 billion, which is invested in various European and U.S. sectors.

Exor N.V. only focuses on a scant number of international companies. Exor seeks out those companies that possess a competitive position, a history of steady earnings, cash flow generation and a strong balance sheet. Exor is also interested in investing in best in class or close to international entities whose managers think and act as holders. The investments are made only in those companies in which the Agnelli Family can actively participate and develop.

Therefore, Exor Investments’ acquisition of Sibanye-Stillwater should trigger a stock appreciation.

In Tuesday morning trading, Sibanye-Stillwater was at $4.05 a share, down almost 1.8%. The stock has lost 44% for the 52-weeks through March 13 and underperformed the Van Eck Vectors Gold Miners by about 45%.

If somebody asks what being a Value Investor means, Alberto Abaterusso would answer: “the Value Investor is not the possessor of a security that represents the company, but he is the owner of that company. As an owner of the company the Value Investor is actively involved in the dynamics of that company and his first aim is how to have sales progressively growing.”

Alberto Abaterusso would add: “probably the Value Investor is one of the least patient persons in the world concerning sales.”
