JOHANNESBURG - Sibanye Gold is providing a further $72million (R959m) in financial assistance to its indirect wholly owned subsidiary Thor US Holdco in a bid to capitalise Stillwater Mining Company. 

This follows the R2.6billion it paid out in June last year after Sibanye and Thor US Holdco completed the acquisition of Stillwater for $2.2bn. 

In a Stock Exchange News Service announcement yesterday, Sibanye said this was to enable Stillwater to settle certain short-term debts following Sibanye’s takeover of the US’s sole provider of platinum and palladium. 

Sibanye said that following the receipt of the $500m advance payment, the company was initially applying a portion of the proceeds towards the settlement of Stillwater’s utilisations under the $600m revolving credit facility.
