elisa
Spanish translation:Charter Consolidated
Explanation:
Es una empresa creada en 1965.

"Charter Consolidated was created in 1965 by the merger of three British mining, finance and investment companies - The British South Africa Company, The Central Mining & Investment Corporation Limited and The Consolidated Mines Selection Company Limited. Although it inherited some industrial investments, its initial assets were comprised mainly of mining investments. The strategy was to develop Charter Consolidated as a mining finance house actively engaged in mineral exploration and the development of mines throughout the world.

Charter Consolidated's subsequent development was inhibited by the lack of success of its major new mining investments, largely through political problems overseas and technical difficulties. In 1979, it was decided to adopt a new strategy which gave a better balance between mining and industrial investments with increased emphasis on the development of Charter Consolidated's British based industrial operations. This resulted in the disposal of investments in South Africa and other countries outside Europe to companies within the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa group. In return Charter Consolidated acquired investment interests in Europe, including a 28 per cent investment in Johnson Matthey. Over the following years, Charter Consolidated made further acquisitions in the industrial field largely in mining equipment manufacture, open-cast coal mining and quarrying.

By the late 1980s, Charter Consolidated had developed a strategy concentrating on industrial operations managed within the Group and disposal of passive investments and industrial interests which did not fit with its core industrial activities."
