Australia’s Newcrest to defend GCR lease challenge


SYDNEY–Newcrest Mining Ltd. said Tuesday it will “vigorously” defend a legal challenge from exploration company Gold and Copper Resources Pty. Ltd., or GCR, over rights to develop its Cadia Valley project in New South Wales state.

“GCR has holdings of exploration licences in the Cadia district, and that GCR is seeking to expand those holdings, including by challenging existing Newcrest tenure in the region,” Newcrest said in the statement.

Newcrest said the latest action–one of five launched by GCR against Newcrest–challenges the validity of two of the mining leases held for its Cadia Valley operations and granted in October 2000 and March 2001 respectively.

The company will be “vigorously defending” the claims, and the legal action won’t adversely impact operations at Cadia, Newcrest said in a statement.

GCR wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Arrium rejects revised offer from Posco, Noble


MELBOURNE–Arrium Ltd. has spurned a revised offer from South Korean steel producer Posco and Hong Kong-based commodities trader Noble Group Ltd. that values the Australian iron ore and steel producer at roughly 1.19 billion Australian dollars (US$1.24 billion).

Arrium in a statement to the stock exchange Wednesday said its board and advisers carefully reviewed the new cash offer of 88 Australian cents a share–a 17% improvement over the previous bid that was rejected at the start of the month–but they continue to believe the price significantly undervalues Arrium.

“The revised proposal is opportunistic. It comes as iron ore prices are rising and after we have shipped the first ore from our new mine two weeks ago,” said Peter Smedley, Arrium’s chairman.

The company said the consortium hasn’t arranged the debt financing necessary for an acquisition, and hasn’t disclosed details of arrangements it has proposed negotiating with Arrium’s lenders.

Posco and Noble had previously offered 75 Australian cents a share for Arrium. The pair are backed by National Pension Service of Korea, Korea Investment Corp. and Korea Finance Corp., in a joint venture they have named Steelmakers Australia.

Arrium earlier this year changed its name from OneSteel Ltd. in an effort to highlight a growing focus on iron-ore production. The company has plans to boost iron-ore output to about 11 million metric tons a year from more than 6 million in the last fiscal year, and this month sold the first ore from its new Southern Iron operation in South Australia state.

Verizon to move $7.5B in pensions to Prudential


Verizon Communications Inc. VZ +1.45% has agreed to transfer about $7.5 billion in management pension plan obligations to Prudential Financial Inc. PRU +1.53% , as the telecom heavyweight looks to improve its long-term term financial profile.

Under the agreement, Verizon’s management pension plan will purchase a group annuity contract from Prudential Insurance Co. of America, which will then assume responsibility for making payments to certain Verizon management retirees. The transfer is expected to close in December,

The deal is expected to further Verizon’s goal of de-risking its pension plan. Verizon has nearly $30 billion in outstanding pension obligations.

The agreement covers about 41,000 Verizon management pension plan participants who retired and started receiving pension benefits before Jan. 1., 2010. The amount of each retiree’s annuity payment will be equal to the amount of that individual’s pension benefit.

The largest U.S. phone carrier has seen its revenue growth improve in recent quarters as the addition of Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) iPhone helped Verizon Wireless–its joint venture with Vodafone Group PLC (VOD, VOD.LN) — lure new subscribers from competitors. Verizon has also seen increased gains for its FiOS Internet and television offerings and is expanding its networking and cloud-computing services as it moves to replace its shrinking landline business.

In July, Verizon reported its second-quarter net income rose 13% as the growth in the wireless business drove revenue and the company increased its overall subscriber base.

Verizon shares were off by two cents to $44.70 after hours. The stock is up 11% since the start of the eyar.

Hanesbrands second-quarter profit drops 99%


Hanesbrands Inc.’s HBI -1.02% second-profit slumped 99% as discontinued businesses put a weight on results and the apparel maker again struggled with higher cotton costs.

The company, whose products are staple offerings at retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) and Target Corp. (TGT), earlier this year struck a deal to sell its European imagewear division and said it would exit the private-label category in the U.S. as part of an overhaul of its business. Those businesses are now classified as discontinued operations.

For the second quarter, Hanesbrands reported a profit of $1.23 million, or one cent a share, down sharply from $86.8 million, or 89 cents a year earlier. Earnings from continuing operations totaled 67 cents a share in the latest period.

Net sales inched up 1.1% to $1.18 billion. Analysts expected earnings of 49 cents a share on $1.25 billion in sales, according to a poll conducted by Thomson Reuters.

Gross margin narrowed to 31.1% from 35.1%, reflecting higher cotton costs.

Innerwear sales–the largest sales contributor– rose 2.2%. Sales of outerwear inched up 1.2% and international sales declined 1.8%.

Shares were down 1.1% to $29.70 after hours.
