Multiplex heir Tim Roberts buys $30m stake in Mineral Resources
Peter WilliamsThe West Australian
QUOTE
Rich lister and Mineral Resources director Tim Roberts has emerged as the buyer of a $30 million stake in the mining company.

A declaration to the Australian Securities Exchange today said Mr Roberts acquired the stake through an off-market transaction on November 28.

It had been reported last week that brokerage UBS was seeking a large chunk of shares on behalf of a buyer.

Mr Roberts through his private company Kingfisher Capital paid an average price of $14.80 a share.

The stock price has fallen 30 per cent this year.

The purchase gives the son of the late Multiplex founder John Roberts a stake of about one per cent in Mineral Resources.

AFR suggestion is UBS was calling around looking for a " few hundred million dollars worth of shares"

Big buyer seeks Mineral Resources stake
QUOTE
It's believed the buyer is an "insider" with market sources pointing towards one of the company's cashed-up directors. Multiplex heir and Perth billionaire Tim Roberts joined the board two years ago, while natural resources banker James McClements took up a seat in 2015.

Global Lithium Spotlight Falls On Wodgina
Australia | 2:11 PM
QUOTE
Wodgina, the hard rock lithium project, has found the global spotlight as Mineral Resources announces a JV proposal from Albemarle.

-JV plans to develop lithium hydroxide production at Wodgina
-Fully unrisked the proposal offers around 90% of Morgan Stanley's valuation
-FY19 earnings guidance below forecasts

https://www.fnarena.com/index.php/2018/11/2...lls-on-wodgina/

Joe Lowry doesn't appear as "glowing" in his assessment of the deal

QUOTE
Joe Lowry@globallithium

Would caveat this by saying Wodgina isn’t near term lithium chemical supply, $ALB brings little to the table in terms of project execution. More like, if the deal proceeds, Christmas comes early for $MIN & $ALB demonstrates they have degenerated to complete disarray.

Unfortunately $ALB is the least competent operator among the “Big 4”. Their struggle with LaNegra II, the fact they don’t operate Greenbushes & had to buy LiOH capacity rather than build it don’t bode well for success in Oz with $MIN who only mines

If this deal happens at this price:
What does it say about:
1) The ability to expand Greenbushes? 2) $ALB ‘s real situation in the Atacama? 3) ALB’s need to not operate key assets? 4) Chris Ellison’s ability to negotiate. Congrats $MIN

Stroke of genius or beginning of the end for $ALB? More likely the latter. $MIN celebrates an “Aussie Thanksgiving” one day before the US version. Luke, Bueller, Anyone??.

‘Get off our register’: Minerals Resources boss Chris Ellison on the attack after another strike against executive pay
Stuart McKinnonThe West Australian
Thursday, 22 November 2018 4:55PM
QUOTE
Mineral Resources boss Chris Ellison has again told institutional investors blindly following proxy advisers to get off the company’s share register after it received yet another strike against its executive remuneration report.

A whopping 63.3 per cent of votes cast by shareholders opposed MinRes’ remuneration, giving the company another first strike.

Today’s poll follows two similar strikes against the company’s remuneration report in the past two years.

Last year, the company’s second strike triggered a board spill motion but shareholders overwhelmingly voted to retain the existing board and management.

Speaking to reporters after the company’s annual meeting in Perth this morning, Mr Ellison insisted the company was not overpaying its people.

“The returns we give our shareholders is good, our people work hard and they deserve the remuneration they get,” he said.

AFR Street Talk article suggests Russell Moran + Chinese could be interested in the 49% stake

QUOTE
Moran is chairman of ASX-listed lithium micro-cap Metals Tech, which at a market capitalisation of barely $7 million, would be an extremely ambitious bidder for a 49 per cent stake that some analysts believe will sell for more than $1 billion.

But Moran is understood to have corralled a group of Chinese spodumene concentrate consumers, who in Spring Racing Carnival parlance, are looking to back a local horse in the Wodgina process.

Moran has been keeping his end of the bargain, registering a new company with ASIC on August 29 named Wodgina Resources Limited.

The degree to which Metals Tech would be involved in Moran's pitch was unclear on Tuesday.

Blue skies for Mineral Resources’ Wodgina lithium project
Stuart McKinnonThe West Australian
Wednesday, 25 July 2018 8:57AM
extract
QUOTE
Mineral Resources has revealed its Wodgina lithium project could more than double its underlying earnings when fully commissioned.

The Chris Ellison-led company announced yesterday its proposed 750,000 tonnes a year lithium spodumene concentrate plant in the Pilbara was expected to deliver $600 million in annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation.

The figure compares with the company’s full-year 2017 EBITDA of $464 million and first-half 2018 EBITDA of $352 million.

MinRes said it expected to begin commissioning the $610 million plant in October and have it fully commissioned by the middle of next year.

Its prediction is based on a price of $US960 a tonne for a 6 per cent lithium product, operating costs of about $548/t and prevailing exchange rates.

MinRes also said yesterday that non-binding indicative offers for a 49 per cent stake in Wodgina were expected by mid to late August with a formal announcement expected by the end of the year.
