    Exclusive - Activist investor Sachem Head pushes Whitbread to consider break-up: sources

    Activist investor Sachem Head has asked Whitbread (WTB.L) to consider a break up of its Costa Coffee chain from its hotels and restaurant businesses, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The U.S. hedge fund disclosed a 3.4 percent stake in FTSE 100-listed Whitbread last month, sending the Premier Inn-owner's shares up more than 7 percent on the day amid speculation the activist would push to split up the company. Sachem Head wants Whitbread's management team, led by chief executive Alison Brittain, to examine a break-up as a way to boost the value of its individual businesses, the people said.

    Output and exports from Colombia's Cerrejon coal mine fell in 2017

    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.

    Australia forecasts 20 percent iron ore price drop in 2018 as China demand eases

    Australia on Monday said it expects iron ore prices to average $51.50 a tonne this year, down 20 percent from 2017, because of rising global supply and moderating demand from top importer China as its steel sector shrinks. The government projection is out of step with some private forecasts, with UBS and Citi calling for iron ore prices to average around $64 a tonne in 2018 - flat on 2017's $64.30 - with the market proving suprisingly resilient. Spot iron ore, currently around $75 a tonne , last traded below $52 in June 2017, but Department of Industry, Innovation and Science resource and energy analyst David Thurtell pointed to an expected contraction in China's steel industry.

    Coal dwarfs battery metals in mining deals despite war on pollution

    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.

    Boris Johnson will appeal to Russia and Britain's "450 years of shared history" on Friday during what is the first visit to the country by a British foreign minister in five years. Toys R Us UK reached a last-minute restructuring deal with its largest creditor, the Pension Protection Fund, to avoid falling into administration and risking 3,200 jobs. Mark Garnier, the UK international trade minister, will keep his job after a Cabinet Office investigation found he had not breached ministerial rules.
