Belastende Baisse: Rohstoff-Gigant Freeport plant mögliche Abspaltung des Öl- und Gasgeschäfts

Krasse Entwicklungen und potentielle Pläne beim größten, amerikanischen Rohstoffproduzenten..

  • Two years after its much criticized $9B purchase of two energy exploration companies, Freeport McMoRan (NYSE:FCX) is considering spinning them off or selling a minority stake - although the company apparently would retain a “significant interest” in any spun-off entity.
  • A possible IPO of stock in the oil and gas business could take place late this year and would highlight the stand-alone value of the business, Jim Flores, vice-chairman of FCX and CEO of the company’s energy business, said in today's earnings conference call.
  • "If this is the path that Freeport ultimately chooses, it clearly indicates that management’s quest to find a strategic investor in its energy business has not worked,” says Jefferies analyst Christopher LaFemina.
  • In its Q1 results, FCX reported a $3.1B loss for impairment of oil and gas properties, and said the cash margin in its oil division fell to $23.45/boe from $58.71 a year ago with revenue slumping by more than half to $547M from $1.2B.
  • FCX's debt - now up to $20.3B - ballooned with its 2013 acquisition of two oil and natural gas producers, as it diversified its business beyond copper, gold and molybdenum mining.
