Anglo American plc close period share purchase programme
Anglo American plc announces that an agreement has been entered into to continue
the purchases of its shares by an independent company.
Anglo American plc (the “Company”) announces that an agreement has been entered
into to continue the purchases of its shares by the independent company to
be funded by a wholly owned overseas subsidiary of the Company (as described
in the announcement dated 23 March 2006) during its close period, which commences
on 1 July 2006 and ends on 4 August 2006, the day on which the Company's interim
results are scheduled to be published. The mandate in the agreement is for
an irrevocable, non-discretionary programme to purchase the Company's shares.
Any purchases will be effected within certain pre-set parameters, within the
limits of the programme and at prices per share which will be no more than
the higher of the price of the last independent trade in such shares and the
highest current independent bid for such shares. Purchases of Anglo American
shares by the independent company under these arrangements will be announced
in keeping with existing regulations governing UK corporate share repurchases.
The Company confirms that it currently has no information which is not generally
available and which, if generally available, would be likely to have a significant
effect on the price of the Company's ordinary shares.
