  • Goldman Sachs Group Inc Resumes Talks to Sell Controversial Business (GS)

    Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS) announced its intentions to resume talks with parties interested in purchasing its metals warehousing business - many of these companies are based outside of U.S borders. The metals warehouse business, dubbed Metro International Trading Services, has become something of a burden to the company as it is not only subject to new rules and regulations, but has also been a point of controversy for the financial giant. The warehouse stores aluminum and other metals as a part of the London Metal Exchange (LME). The latter fact is important due to the controversy surrounding U.S. financial instutions and the physical commodity world. Goldman was accused of intentionally increasing wait times and prices for metals buyers in order to turn a profit. Amid all the speculation and accusations of wrongdoing, which is nothing new for Goldman, it seems that the company is looking to unload the unit that has become a liability in recent months. It was reported that a number of potential buyers were Chinese firms along with a Brazilian entity, though a front-runner has yet to appear. Goldman shares were up $1.28, or 0.77%, at Monday's close. The stock is up nearly 30% YTD.
