  • Murray & Roberts Transfers its Sector Listing from Heavy Construction to Diversified Industrial

    Johannesburg, 20 March 2017 – Murray & Roberts, at close of trading on the JSE Limited (“JSE”) today, transferred its listing of securities maintained on the JSE List from the Construction & Materials sector, sub-sector – 2357 Heavy Construction to the General Industrials sector, sub-sector 2727 Diversified Industrial.

    This follows the Group’s announcement of the disposal of its South African Infrastructure & Building businesses, which was classified as non-core in 2016. This transaction should be completed within the second half of the current financial year. 

    Henry Laas, Murray & Roberts Group Chief Executive, comments: “Murray & Roberts has transformed into a multinational specialist engineering and construction group, and it has taken a long term view in deciding to focus its expertise on the global natural resources markets. This new strategic direction and resultant divestment from the civil engineering and general building market sectors made it appropriate to transfer our sector listing to General Industrial.”

    This year, the Group is also celebrating 115 years in existence since it was founded in 1902, as well as recognizing its 65th year as a listed company on the JSE.
