Wesfarmers notes media speculation regarding a potential sale of all or part of its coal assets.
Wesfarmers has previously disclosed that it is evaluating all strategic options for the Resources business with a view to maximising shareholder value. Wesfarmers is continuing to consider a broad range of options, from operational to divestment initiatives, including recently seeking expressions of interest from external parties who may want to acquire the coal assets. There is no certainty this process will lead to a transaction and Wesfarmers will update the market further if and when appropriate.
