Glencore, an Anglo-Swiss mining company that extracts raw materials for everything from smartphones to sugar, has gotten a lift in the past year from rising commodity prices, helping revenues rise 18% and lifting the firm two spots on the Global 500. But in the wake of squabbles with the Congo government over higher royalties for its African copper and cobalt mines, sentiment around the company has soured. And recently other dark clouds have emerged: Glencore has been subpoenaed by the U.S. Department of Justice over its compliance with American anti-bribery and anti-money laundering laws abroad for its work in countries like Nigeria and Venezuela.
