In January 2013, Anglo American Platinum Limited (“Anglo American Platinum” or “the Company”) announced its proposals to create a sustainable, competitive and profitable platinum business for the long term benefit of all its stakeholders. Following the announcement of its proposals, Anglo American Platinum and its recognised unions agreed to suspend the section 189 consultations to allow for engagement to take place with the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) and the unions. At the request of the DMR, such engagement became a bilateral engagement between Anglo American Platinum and the DMR. The bilateral engagements with the DMR have now been completed. Anglo American Platinum has formulated revised proposals which remain focused on improving the profitability and sustainability of its business, while taking cognisance of the local and national socio economic challenges.

In a year that was marred by illegal and violent industrial action across the mining industry, and where continued high levels of inflation and a subdued macroeconomic environment, particularly in Europe, led to severe margin contraction, Anglo American Platinum today reported an operating loss of R6, 334 million for the year ended 31 December 2012. This represents a 180% reduction, from a profit of R7, 965 million in 2011. Headline earnings per ordinary share decreased year-on-year to a loss of R5.62 in 2012, from a profit of R13.65 reported in 2011. This was primarily due to lower sales volumes, the impact of higher mining inflation on costs and lower realised metal prices. Headline earnings per ordinary share exclude a loss of R463 million resulting from the revaluation of certain investments as well as the write-down of various other projects and assets, which are considered uneconomical in the current environment, to the value of R6.6 billion (after-tax R4.8 billion).
