Mining Company Anglo-American May Be Pressured to Create a Separate South African Company

anglo-american-logo   South Africa, through their own Public Investment Corp. (PIC), may want to break up Anglo-American (NGLOY|OTC MARKETS; AAUKF|OTC MARKETS), a large mining conglomerate, in order to create a more nationally-oriented (and controlled?) mining company:

“London and Johannesburg-listed Anglo American has been attempting to sell many of its operations worldwide in recent months, jettisoning coal and iron ore to concentrate on three key products, copper, the De Beers diamond business and platinum.”

“South Africa’s ruling African National Congress party is also looking for ways to boost the economy and gain public support following recent electoral setbacks… A source close to the situation pointed out that the South African government has often aired the view that it would like to see a nationally owned mining company emerge “at some point…”

A Power Investment Opportunity in Africa – From France!

Electric Power  There is an energy management giant that aims to grow in Africa that many don’t know about.  Schneider Electric (SBGSF), a large French company that provides power systems around the world, has been in Africa for a long time and is continuing to expand there, with aims to expand in Southern Africa.  They are already operating in Nigeria and other African countries, and have built a new facility in South Africa, looking to go into Angola, Mozambique and Zambia.

The president of Schneider Electric Africa said in 2012 that the electrical needs of Africa should double by 2030!  This looks like a tremendous long-term opportunity, and Schneider Electric might be a great company to invest in to take advantage of this.  It is listed on the Paris stock exchange as SU.PA and in the U.S. as an ADR (SBGSF)
