News December 12, 2002 - Xstrata PLC said its subsidiary Asturiana de Zinc SA has signed an agreement to buy the Nordenham Zinc Smelter from Metaleurop SA for 100 mln usd, including a payment of 13 mln usd for zinc related inventories.   The acquisition will be funded from Xstrata's existing corporate facilities.  Xstrata CEO Mick Davis said, "The purchase of Nordenham is consistent with Xstrata's stated strategy to leverage its balance sheet strength in opportunistic, incremental acquisitions of quality assets at the bottom of a commodity cycle. Nordenham is a modern, efficient zinc producer, which complements San Juan de Nieva, our existing, highly profitable European smelter in Spain."   The deal is structured to enable Asturiana de Zinc SA to purchase Metaleurop Zinc Holding GmbH, a newly created subsidiary of Metaleurop, enabling Xstrata to secure the benefits of a fully restated fixed asset base and to exclude historical environmental and other liabilities.  The Nordenham plant, near Bremerhaven in northern Germany, has an annual production capacity of 133,000 tonnes zinc metal, and is one of the world's most profitable and cost efficient zinc producers, the company said.  The acquisition will take Xstrata Zinc's total annual zinc capacity from its current 470,000 tonnes to over 600,000 tonnes, accounting for 20.5 pct of European zinc metal production and 6.4 pct of global output.  Nordenham is expected to generate EBITDA in excess of 20 mln usd on a proforma basis in calendar year 2002, and currently has 296 employees.
