Glencore not to convert RUSAL shares into En+ Group GDRs

MOSCOW, Apr 10 (PRIME) -- Swiss commodity trader Glencore has dropped an idea to convert its stake in Russian aluminum giant UC RUSAL into global depositary receipts (GDRs) of En+ Group because of the new U.S. sanctions, it said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Glencore has previously signed a non-binding term sheet with En+ regarding swapping its shares in RUSAL for Global Depositary Receipts in En+. Glencore will not proceed with the transaction at this time in light of the designation of RUSAL and EN+ as SDNs (the Specially Designated Nationals And Blocked Persons List),” the statement read.

RUSAL’s shares fell 7.9% by 10:19 a.m. Moscow time on the Moscow Exchange and GDRs of En+ lost about 17% on the London Stock Exchange.

In March, En+ said that it expects Glencore to complete the transaction by the end of April. As a result, the stake of En+ in RUSAL was to rise to 56.88% from 48.13%.

Glencore also said that its CEO Ivan Glasenberg has resigned from his position as a member of the board of directors of RUSAL.

On April 6, the U.S. imposed sanctions against a total of 38 Russian tycoons, officials and companies, including Oleg Deripaska.
