Company profile

Exxaro is one of the largest South Africa-based diversified resources groups, with interests in the coal, titanium dioxide, ferrous and energy markets and current business interests in South Africa, Botswana, Republic of the Congo, Inner Mongolia and Australia. The company is the second-largest coal producer in South Africa with current production of almost 40 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa), and is listed on the JSE Limited.

Although our company is just eight years old, our pedigree and wealth of skills stretch back over decades as a company rooted in South Africa and respected among its peers for its innovation, ethics and integrity.

Based on a well-executed strategy, solid returns, access to funds and quality resources, Exxaro is a unique listed investment opportunity into its chosen commodities. Exxaro was one of the top 10 mining companies globally in terms of total shareholder returns in 2012, and remains on track to add significant value to all stakeholders in the longer term.

Group strategy

The strategy is based on a resource-to-market business model with the intent to invest (invest in energy, metal and mineral resource commodities that generate sustainable economic returns of 1,5 times the cost of capital), develop (develop market insights for our products and appropriate technology throughout the value chain for added value and competitive market advantage), and grow (extract energy, metal and mineral commodities from diverse geographies by using our own capabilities and relevant partnerships).

This strategic intent rests on four strategic objectives:

  • To demonstrate responsibility and accountability to our stakeholders
  • To optimise our portfolio of investments and operations
  • To develop the capability of our leadership and people
  • To continuously seek operational excellence and outstanding financial results.

Our brand vision

The Exxaro brand is built on a strong vision – Everything we do and deliver today will allow others to realise their vision tomorrow. At Exxaro, we look beyond the current commodities and operations and see the impact we have on people and the planet. This way of thinking is what drives our essence of "defining possibility". We believe in the power of people and their ability to explore and shift boundaries which lead to success.

When inspired leaders in any specific field come together, one expects nothing less than greatness. Exxaro is no different. Formed by the merger of some of the biggest achievers in its industry, Exxaro’s leaders aim to build on the successes of their predecessors and push the group to unrivalled success. In short, Exxaro has no equal. It is a progressive, new generation South African organisation which aims to create possibilities for all involved.
