Request for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the Appointment of the Transaction Advisory Team for the Euronext Listing Upgrade – Tender No.:
ZCCM-IH/004/2021 – via the zppa e-GP

  1. INTRODUCTION

ZCCM Investments Holdings Plc (“ZCCM-IH” or the “Company”) is an investment holding company with diversified interests in mining, energy, property and other sectors of the Zambian economy.

The Zambian Government (“GRZ”) directly holds 17.25% of the shares in ZCCM-IH and 60.28% indirectly through Industrial Development Corporation (“IDC”), an investment company wholly owned by the Zambian Government. With the remaining 22.47% being held by institutions and individuals. The geographical spread of the minority shareholders, who number around 3,000, covers Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Australia, Asia and the USA.

  1. BACKGROUND

ZCCM-IH is currently listed on the following three (3) stock exchanges:

    1. A primary listing on the Lusaka Securities Exchange (“LuSE”), having listed on 24 January 1996;
    2. A secondary listing on the London Stock Exchange (“LSE”), having listed on 29 June 1970; and
    3. A secondary listing on Euronext, Paris, having listed in October 1970.

The Company’s shares are split across the three (3) exchanges as follows:

Description Total Shares %
Euronext 10 619 577 6.60
LuSE 52 961 346 32.94
LSE 218 090 0.14
GRZ – Class A Shares 96 926 669 60.23
Reconciling Balance (1 512)  
Totals 160 800 286 100.00

Majority of the listed ZCCM-IH shares are listed on the LuSE, however, significant share trading activity takes place on the Euronext. Currently, ZCCM-IH share activity on all 3 exchanges has been plagued with illiquidity and a decreasing or stagnant stock price despite a positive turnaround in the Company’s earnings.

In an effort to restructure ZCCM-IH’s stock exchange listings to enhance shareholder value, increase its visibility in the stock markets and thereby trading activity on its secondary exchange listings, the Board of ZCCM-IH approved the upgrading of the listing of the ZCCM-IH shares on the Euronext Stock Exchange from the Access tier to the Growth tier (“the Transaction”).

Therefore, ZCCM-IH requires the services of an Advisory firm to successfully upgrade its listing on Euronext Access to Euronext Growth.

  1. Objective of the assignment

The Transaction Advisory Firm’s key objectives will be to:

    1. To advise on the listing upgrade methodology; and
    2. To actualize the listing upgrade in a manner consistent with all applicable rules and regulations.

ZCCM IH reduces appetite for banking and milling

FinanceZCCM-Investment Holdings Plc

Written by 

During the last six months of the 2020 financial half-year of ZCCM IH, a proposal was tabled that would see the investment group reduce its stake in banking and milling.

According to sources close to the matter, ZCCM IH has been in the process of recrafting their strategic plan. This refinement in strategy comes with the blessings of IDC who are the parents of the investment group.

Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) Group CEO Mr Mateyo Kaluba has said ZCCM-IH will take up a more active role as an investor in the mining sector rather than being a holding company for the Government’s minority shares”, read a statement published on the ZCCM IH website after the IDC CEO toured Kabundi Resources Limited mine, ZCCM-IH’s manganese mining operation in Serenje district.

This was a very strong signal that indicated that IDC along with ZCCM IH would seek out a strategic path that would see IDC increase its investment umbrella by snapping up ZCCM IH’s banking and milling interests.

According to a SENS announcement published on 1st October 2020, through the IDC Reorganization Transaction initiative, the Board of ZCCM-IH considered and approved the proposed IDC/ZCCM-IH Group reorganization exercise whereby:

  1. IDC transfers its 25% equity stake in Kagem Mining Limited, at fair market value, to ZCCM IH;
  2. ZCCM-IH transfers its 71.4% equity stake in Investrust Bank PLC, at fair market value to IDC; and
  • iii) ZCCM-IH transfers its 100% stake in Mushe Milling Limited to IDC at fair market value.

These 3 corporate actions listed above will be undertaken simultaneously as a corporate group reorganization exercise involving IDC and ZCCM-IH and constitute the proposed Group Portfolio Rationalization and Reorganization.

Based on the IDC CEO’s statement, it can be deduced that the stars are being aligned for ZCCM IH to increase its focus on mining whilst reducing its arm of influence over sectors that have potential to be a distraction. What this entails is ZCCM IH seeking out a healthier chunk in shareholding for mining assets that become available over the near and long term.

No doubt CEO Mabvuto Chipata will be aligning his charges and ensure that they apply their skills sets on the refined strategic mandate that is beginning to unfold.

ZCCM-IH to appeal court decision asking it to enter arbitration with Vedanta

ZAMBIAN mines minister, Richard Musukwa, said the country’s government remained steadfast in its desire to find a buyer for control of Konkola Copper Mines (KCM), currently owned by Vedanta Resources.

“It is still the government’s wish to find a new equity investor with technical and financial capacity to recapitalise the mine and operate it effectively,” Musukwa said after the state mining arm ZCCM-IH signalled its intention to appeal a court ruling in favour of Vedanta.

Earlier this month, a Court of Appeal ruled that ZCCM-IH should go into arbitration with Vedanta regarding disputes related to KCM. Vedanta owns 80% of KCM with ZCCM-IH owning the balance. Musukwa, however, said the country wanted KCM to be put into liquidation proceedings.

In 2019, Zambia accused Vedanta of failing to live up to its investment and dividend promises and barred the Indian company from accessing KCM assets. Vedanta argued that any dispute between shareholders should be negotiated in terms of their agreement.

“ZCCM-IH has already indicated that they are appealing because they are not happy with the court judgment,” Musukwa told Zambia’s parliament on Thursday.

Potential buyers of KCM were awaiting a resolution to the dispute, Musukwa said, adding that steps taken by the government should not be “considered as nationalism”.

Vedanta was not immediately available for comment, said Reuters.

UPDATE 1-Zambia to appeal court ruling backing Vedanta in KCM mine dispute

LUSAKA, Nov 26 (Reuters) – Zambia’s state mining arm ZCCM-IH plans to appeal a court ruling in favour of Vedanta , which has sought arbitration in a dispute over its jointly owned copper mine that is facing liquidation, the mining minister said.

India-based Vedanta has been locked in a protracted dispute with the Zambian government since May 2019, when Lusaka appointed a liquidator for the mine.

 

“ZCCM-IH has already indicated that they are appealing because they are not happy with the court judgment,” Mining Minister Richard Musukwa told parliament on Thursday.

Last week, a Zambian court ordered a halt to liquidation proceedings for Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) to allow Vedanta and ZCCM-IH, which owns 20% of the operation, to proceed to arbitration.

Potential buyers of KCM were awaiting a resolution to the dispute, Musukwa said, adding that steps taken by the government should not be “considered as nationalism”.

“It is still the government’s wish to find a new equity investor with technical and financial capacity to recapitalise the mine and operate it effectively,” he said.

Vedanta was not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Chris Mfula; Writing by Zandi Shabalala; Editing by Edmund Blair)

Zambia’s copper output increases amid foreign debt default

Zambia, Africa’s second-largest copper miner, produced 646,111 tonnes of the metal in the first nine months of 2020, up from 590,321 tonnes in the same period last year, official figures show.

The country’s mines and minerals ministry attributed the 9.45% rise to increased mine output. He said the in southern African nation now expects total production for the year to reach 820,000 tonnes, driven by rising copper prices.

This comes as good news to Zambia, which missed a $42.5 million interest payment on part of its international debt last week, becoming Africa’s first bond default during the coronavirus pandemic.

ZAMBIA’S MINING ASSETS HAVE BEEN IN THE SPOTLIGHT AS THE COUNTRY’S FINANCIAL SITUATION DETERIORATED THIS YEAR AND THE PANDEMIC PROMPTED GLENCORE TO SHUT ITS MOPANI COPPER MINES

Pesident Edgar Lungu’s government, which is battling for re-election next year, has blamed covid-19 for problems managing the country’s $12 billion debt.

While it seeks a compromise with bondholders, the government has announced it has no plans to sell its shares in mining companies it has stakes in to raise cash.

Zambia’s mining assets have been in the spotlight as the country’s financial situation deteriorated this year and the pandemic prompted Glencore (LON: GLEN), one of the biggest miners operating in the country, to shut its Mopani Copper Mines (MCM).

The move angered the government, which threatened to revoke Mopani’s mining licenses and temporarily blocked its chief executive officer Nathan Bullock from leaving the country. 

Glencore reacted by putting its 73.1% stake in the operation on the table, hoping to reach a deal with authorities.

No plans to sell mining stakes

Zambia said earlier this week that negotiations with Glencore about increasing the government’s stake in Mopani were nearing a conclusion, although no information about the size of the stake that state-owned ZCCM Investments Holdings is trying to acquire was given.

The government, which was in arbitration over mining assets it seized last year from billionaire Anil Agarwal’s Vedanta Resources, lost an important battle in the case on Friday.

A local court ordered a halt to liquidation proceedings KCM to allow owners Vedanta and ZCCM-IH to proceed to arbitration.

The ruling hands a significant win to Vedanta, which is seeking the removal of the liquidator appointed by ZCCM-IH — which owns 20% of KCM on the government’s behalf — to run the company.

Other copper miners have halted $2 billion of planned investments because of a dispute over royalty taxes.

Zambia has promised to address the issue at a mining conference later this year.

Zambia: government wants to complete buyout of Glencore’s stake in Mopani Copper Mines within a month

(Ecofin Agency) – Zambia is expected to complete a majority stake in Switzerland’s local subsidiary Glencore, which owns various copper mines in the country, within a month. According to the Minister of Mines, financing will not be a problem, despite the current state of public finances.

In Zambia, Glencore could soon cede to the state all or part of its interest (73.1%) in Mopani Copper Mines, a local subsidiary active in the copper mines of the Swiss commodities giant. At least that is what emerges from the words of Barnaby Mulenga (photo), permanent secretary at the Zambian Ministry of Mines, who foresees the end of the negotiations within a month, without specifying the importance of the participation that the national company ZCCM Investments Holdings is trying to acquire.

If the country has been in “payment default” for several weeks, according to the rating agency S&P, raising the necessary funds for the operation does not appear to be a problem. However, we learn, the funding will not come from the public treasury.

“The resource attracts money, so the question of financing is the last worry for the Zambian government,” Mulenga told Bloomberg as Glencore valued the various operations at $ 704 million.

As a reminder, the decision to acquire a majority stake in Mopani Copper Mines came earlier this year, after tensions with Glencore. The company wanted to put its mines on a maintenance and upkeep regime, against the advice of the government, which currently holds only 10% interest through ZCCM-IH, the rest belonging to First Quantum Minerals.
