Storage wars: New U.S. potash player K+S faces warehouse squeeze
WINNIPEG, Manitoba, May 1 Germany's K+S AG will crack into the U.S. fertilizer market this spring when it opens the first new western Canadian potash mine in nearly five decades.
VIENNA Oct 6 Brazilian refractories materials maker Magnesita made a London share listing a precondition for its takeover by Austrian peer RHI, but the group had to find a place other than London for the combined company's headquarters, due to the UK vote to leave the European Union, RHI's chief executive said on Thursday.
Instead the RHI Magnesita company will be established in the Netherlands to remain subject to European merger rules, while its shares will be listed in London, Wolfgang Ruttenstorfer said in a conference call.
"Had there been no Brexit, I suppose that the ... holding company would have been established in London," he said. "Because there is Brexit, however, and the European merger directive is perhaps no longer applicable in London at the closing in 18 months, it was the task to find a place other than London."
