Jupiter Mines Ltd (ASX:JMS) back in the black after Investec exodus

Recently re-listed manganese miner Jupiter Mines Ltd (ASX: JMS) shares are up 1.4% to 35c per share at the time of writing after sliding into the red last week after UBS sought to sell an $89 million stake in the company on behalf of Investec on August 2.

Jupiter was not aware of Investec’s plans to sell down its 13.4% holdings in the company prior to the transaction, with further details yet to be released.

According to a report in The Financial Review, UBS bought the stake from Investec last Wednesday night, offering the shares at 34c each – an 11.7% discount to the last close – on Thursday.

Jupiter’s IPO back in April was the biggest among ASX miners in almost 10 years, with the company so far smashing through its targets and raking in some impressive cash assets.

More experienced manganese miner South32 Ltd (ASX: S32) shares have been on the decline of late but were also back in the black at the time of writing – up 1% to $3.46.

Big name commodity players BHP Billiton Limited (ASX: BHP) shares are up 1.9% to $34.03 at the time of writing with peer Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO) also up 1% to $77.32.
