    Exclusive - Activist investor Sachem Head pushes Whitbread to consider break-up: sources

    Activist investor Sachem Head has asked Whitbread (WTB.L) to consider a break up of its Costa Coffee chain from its hotels and restaurant businesses, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The U.S. hedge fund disclosed a 3.4 percent stake in FTSE 100-listed Whitbread last month, sending the Premier Inn-owner's shares up more than 7 percent on the day amid speculation the activist would push to split up the company. Sachem Head wants Whitbread's management team, led by chief executive Alison Brittain, to examine a break-up as a way to boost the value of its individual businesses, the people said.

    Energy, mining stocks drag FTSE lower

    Oil and mining companies dragged Britain's FTSE 100 index to a negative close on Tuesday, tracking energy and metals prices lower, after gaining earlier in the session on a fall in sterling. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index ended down 0.28 percent at 7,747.18 points, retreating further from a record set last week and slightly underperforming the broader European market. Interest rate-sensitive banks propped up the FTSE, but the downward pressure from oil and mining shares grew through the rest of the session, pulling the index into the red.

    Output and exports from Colombia's Cerrejon coal mine fell in 2017

    Cerrejon, one of the world's largest open-pit coal mines, is located in northern La Guajira province. The trade union has demanded a 12 percent wage increase in the first year of a new contract, while the company has offered 5.2 percent as well as a bonus to each employee and health and education benefits. Cerrejon's offer is above the 4.09 percent inflation for last year, but the union has said it falls short of expectations given strong coal prices in recent months.

    Australia forecasts 20 percent iron ore price drop in 2018 as China demand eases

    Australia on Monday said it expects iron ore prices to average $51.50 a tonne this year, down 20 percent from 2017, because of rising global supply and moderating demand from top importer China as its steel sector shrinks. The government projection is out of step with some private forecasts, with UBS and Citi calling for iron ore prices to average around $64 a tonne in 2018 - flat on 2017's $64.30 - with the market proving suprisingly resilient. Spot iron ore, currently around $75 a tonne , last traded below $52 in June 2017, but Department of Industry, Innovation and Science resource and energy analyst David Thurtell pointed to an expected contraction in China's steel industry.

    Coal dwarfs battery metals in mining deals despite war on pollution

    Coal and iron ore dominated mining takeovers in 2017, Thomson Reuters data shows, with buyers favouring the heavily polluting devil they know over the uncertainties of a battery-powered future. While the biggest deal was in Brazil, China was a top player despite planning to reduce domestic coal and steel-making to tackle smog in its cities. Elsewhere, miners haunted by the overpriced mega-purchases they made before the commodities crash of 2015 hesitated on deals involving the metals needed to run electric cars.
