(businesspress24) - Sibanye-Stillwater announces the early tender results of the buy back of a portion of its outstanding High Yield Bond Notes

Johannesburg, 18 September 2018: Sibanye-Stillwater (Tickers JSE: SGL and NYSE: SBGL - is pleased to announce the early tender results of its offer to repurchase up to US$350 million (including accrued interest) of the 6.125% Notes due 27 June 2022 (the 2022 Notes) and 7.125% Notes due 27 June 2025 (the 2025 Notes), issued by Stillwater Mining Company.

Neal Froneman CEO of Sibanye-Stillwater commented: We are delighted to announce the results of the tender offers following the early tender time, pursuant to which both offers were fully subscribed. The repurchase of these instruments, which is scheduled to occur on the early settlement date of 19 September 2018, is consistent with delivery against our strategic goals of reducing our leverage, thereby creating immediate value. The repurchase of the High Yield Notes and the Convertible Bond repurchase announced last week, retires approximately 30% of our long term debt at a nominal value of approximately US$415 million, thereby expecting to reduce annual interest costs by approximately US$25 million

The table below sets forth information with respect to the High Yield Notes that were validly tendered at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 17, 2018 (the Early Tender Time) and not withdrawn.
