Chinese conglomerate Fosun buys stake in Russian gold miner Polyus

Chinese conglomerate makes its first investment in the country

A consortium led by Fosun has agreed to acquire up to 15 per cent of Polyus, Russia’s largest gold producer, in the first big Chinese investment in the country’s sprawling mining industry.

Polyus earlier this year won control of a gold deposit thought to be one of the world’s largest. It has long been a target of the $13.3bn Shanghai-based conglomerate with interests from mining to tourism. 

Fosun and two subsidiaries, Hainan Mining and Zhaojin Mining, will pay $890m for an initial 10 per cent stake in the company. The $70.60 share price represents a substantial discount to Wednesday’s closing price of Rbs4445 ($78.30). The deal also includes a one-year option to buy an additional 5 per cent stake for $490m. 

The sale agreement follows more than a year of negotiations that nearly collapsed when Polyus’s board twice sought better terms to reflect the company’s improved business forecasts, two people briefed on the talks told the Financial Times. 

Fosun, led by billionaire Guo Guangchang, owns the Club Med holiday chain and the Cirque du Soleil entertainment business. Its investment in Polyus will be its first purchase in Russia.........................
