Archer Daniels Midland has made a takeover approach to grain trader and processor Bunge, according to people familiar with the matter, setting up a possible bidding war with Glencore.
CHICAGO/CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Top U.S. grains merchant Archer Daniels Midland Co (ADM.N) has proposed a takeover of Bunge Ltd (BG.N), The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, a move that could set up a battle for Bunge with Swiss-based rival Glencore Plc (GLEN.L). Thin margins have squeezed core commodity trading operations, including those of ADM, Bunge, Cargill Inc and Louis Dreyfus Co. Together the four are known as the "ABCDs" and dominate the global grains trade.

Glencore last year sought a tie-up with Bunge in what was viewed as a start of a wave of mergers and acquisitions in the industry.

Agricultural giant Archer Daniels Midland Co. has made a bid to take over Bunge Ltd., reported The Wall Street Journal . ADM’s move could lead to a bidding war with mining company Glencore PLC, which last year offered to buy White Plains, New York-based Bunge (BG), a leading trader and processor of crops such as soybeans and corn. Bunge turned down Glencore’s offer, but the two companies made an agreement that temporarily prevents Glencore from making a hostile bid for Bunge.

Cerrejon, one of the world's largest open-pit coal mines, is located in northern La Guajira province. The trade union has demanded a 12 percent wage increase in the first year of a new contract, while the company has offered 5.2 percent as well as a bonus to each employee and health and education benefits. Cerrejon's offer is above the 4.09 percent inflation for last year, but the union has said it falls short of expectations given strong coal prices in recent months.
Production and exports at Cerrejon, Colombia's largest thermal coal mine, fell in 2017 for the third straight year as heavy rainfall affected operations, the mine's owners said on Wednesday.

Coal and iron ore dominated mining takeovers in 2017, Thomson Reuters data shows, with buyers favouring the heavily polluting devil they know over the uncertainties of a battery-powered future. While the biggest deal was in Brazil, China was a top player despite planning to reduce domestic coal and steel-making to tackle smog in its cities. Elsewhere, miners haunted by the overpriced mega-purchases they made before the commodities crash of 2015 hesitated on deals involving the metals needed to run electric cars.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A contentious copper-nickel mine in northeastern Minnesota took another step forward Friday when state regulators released a crucial draft permit for public comment.
