    He didn't push, he pushed for a spinoff. Anglogold needs cash and so they have initiated this rights issue and camouflaged it with the spinoff.

    And keep in mind it's a rights issue: huge diluation in number of shares, but 0% diluation for existing shareholders that take part in the rights issue and buy new shares. All they have to do is come up with the cash.

    Shareholders not able to come up with the cash are creamed though.

    Doing the math, newco value + existing debt + Anglogold ZA as 80% of Sibanye value the whole company is still somewhat too expensive currently.

  • The rights issue needs to have a discount to the share price. 1/3 at least because during the procees the share price must not sink below the rights' price to buy new shares. And there needs to be an incentive to buy new shares.
    1/3 less = $8, thats more than 250 mio new shares, more than 60% of currently outstanding shares.
