Pangang to Recapitalize Dongfang Titanium for Absolute Holding

On 23 Dec. 2011, Pangang Group Steel Vanadium and Titanium Co., Ltd. (PGVT) announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Titanium Industrial Corporation of Pangang Group (Pangang Titanium) will add capital and expand shares in Panzhihua Dongfang Titanium Co., Ltd. (Dongfang Titanium) , according to CCM’s January issue of TiO2 China Monthly Report.

The expansion of capital and stocks aims to support Dongfang Titanium's new sulfate rutile TiO2 project, which will expand the company's TiO2 production capacity from 40,000t/a to 100,000t/a. The new project needs an investment of USD71.4 million in an estimate. (Please refer to TiO2 China Monthly Report Vol.4 Issue 06.11).

By 31 March 2011, Pangang Titanium held 49% of Dongfang Titanium's total shares with an investment of USD15.6million, and Miyi County An'ning Iron & Titanium Co., Ltd. (the An'ning Company) held the left 51% with an investment of USD16.2 millon.

After discussion with Dongfang Titanium, Pangang Titanium decides to acquire another 97 million shares with capital increase (no more than USD27.0 million), and the An'ning Company wants to acquire another 3 million shares. After the completion of the expansion of capital and stocks, Pangang is expected to hold 65% of Dongfang Titanium's total shares, while the An'ning Company will hold the left 35%. As a result, Dongfang Titanium will be absolutely held by Pangang Titanium.

Pangang Titanium's move is in line with its purpose of strengthening its TiO2 business. By 2011, PGVT owns three subsidiaries for TiO2 production, namely Pangang Titanium, Dongfang Titanium and Chongqing Titanium Industry Co., Ltd. (Chongqing Titanium), with a total TiO2 production capacity of 100,000t/a rutile TiO2 and 20,000t/a anatase TiO2. In H1 2011, the rutile TiO2 output of the three companies are 11,000 tonnes,19,000 tonnes and 18,000 tonnes, respectively.
