Sims Metal Management And Nyrstar Announce The Successful Completion Of The Sale Of Australian Refined Alloys’ Secondary Lead Producing Facility In Sydney

Further to their joint announcement on 15 November 2011, Sims Metal Management Limited (SimsMM) and Nyrstar NV (Nyrstar) today announced that, following receipt of the requisite regulatory approvals from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and the Foreign Investment Review Board, they have now successfully completed the sale of Australian Refined Alloys’ secondary lead producing facility in Sydney (ARA Sydney) to companies associated with Renewed Metal Technologies (RMT) for a total sale price of approximately A$80 million.
