The company on 18 October last year announced that T S Global Minerals Holdings Pte Ltd had entered into an agreement with IMR Asia Holding Pte Ltd to divest its entire stake in Black Ginger (100 percent).

Black Ginger, in turn, holds a 64 percent stake in Sedibeng Iron Ore Pty Ltd, South Africa, which is the operating company, the filing said.

However, it did not disclose financial consideration and other details. Earlier, in a filing to the London Stock Exchange, Tata Steel had said that it would sell the majority stake to IMR Metallurgical Resources for 366 million South African Rand.

The transaction was to complete in a year's time.

IMR Asia Holding Pte Ltd is a group company of IMR Metallurgical Resources AG (IMR), a global metals and mining group headquartered in Switzerland, and a leading supplier of raw materials to the steel industry.
