FILE - This Feb. 7, 2012 file photo shows the headquarters of Glencore in Baar, Switzerland. Commodities and mining group Glencore PLC says it will buy back up to US $1 billion of its own shares as profit for the first half of the year rose 8 percent. The Swiss-based company, which created an industry giant through the merger between Glencore and Xstrata, says the repurchasing of shares will run through the end of March. In its financial statement released Wednesday Aug. 20, 2014 , the company says its adjusted net profit was US $2.01 billion in the first six months of the year, up from a restated $1.86 billion in the comparable period of 2013.
