Exxaro’s controlling black economic empowerment shareholder Main Street 333 Proprietary Ltd will also sell its interest in the miner, Anglo American said.

Anglo American’s stake of 9.7 percent, or 35 million shares, in Exxaro is valued at 3.39 billion rand ($240.62 million) based on Tuesday’s close, while Main Street’s holding equals 1.66 billion rand.
