Building on operations spun out of Gold Fields Ltd., Sibanye became the No. 1 miner in South Africa’s waning gold industry. Now, with the acquisition of Lonmin Plc, Chief Executive Officer Neal Froneman has completed Sibanye’s transformation to a giant of the nation’s key platinum sector. “This makes Sibanye an integrated platinum producer at a bargain price,” said Bernard Swanepoel, a former chief of Harmony Gold Mining Co. who now sits on the board of Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd.
Earlier on Tuesday, Sibanye-Stillwater said 87% of its shareholders backed the all-share offer, which it revised last month to value the struggling Lonmin at 226 million pounds ($286 million), 60 million pounds less than originally proposed. Lonmin was hit hard by the drop in platinum prices and has had to cut spending and jobs in order to retain a positive balance sheet, a condition of Sibanye's proposed offer. Shares in London-listed Lonmin were up 5.2% at 1131 GMT, while Sibanye's were up 5.8%.
When Lonmin shareholder votes are tallied next Tuesday at a meeting in London, the PIC’s 30% stake would be enough to block the acquisition. While the takeover was originally touted as a lifeline as Lonmin hemorrhaged cash, Africa’s largest money manager is troubled by the drop in Sibanye’s stock since the all-share deal was announced in December 2017, according to a person familiar with the matter. Sibanye last month increased the share ratio it’s offering to Lonmin investors after metal prices rose, but the value of the deal remains lower than when it was first announced.

The gold industry is a capital-intensive space comprised of companies involved in different steps of the production process, including exploration, development and full-fledged mining. The gold industry has long been viewed as a safe haven in times of geopolitical uncertainty, as gold investments have been used for both portfolio diversification and as a hedge against US currency weakness and high inflation. Gold was one of the first storehouses of value, and is an important mined commodity.
