Anglo American PLC (AAL.LN) said Monday that it has agreed to purchase Sirius Minerals PLC (SXX.LN) for 5.5 pence in cash per share.

The cash offer that Sirius shareholders will receive compares with the previous day's closing price of 5.4 pence.
The company said that Sirius Minerals' North Yorkshire polyhalite project has the potential to become a world-class, low-cost and long-life asset.
