Ansteel declares Gindalbie takeover offer final

Gindalbie Metals (ASX: GBG) says takeover suitor Ansteel had confirmed its 2.6c cash per share bid was final, ahead of a shareholder vote next Wednesday. Ansteel said: "The current transaction is the only structure that can be achieved under Ansteel’s regulatory approval conditions. Therefore, the current proposal is final.” Although Gindalbie has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from shareholders since the transaction was announced in March, small pockets of investors have criticised the bid. In addition to the 2.6c cash per share payment, Gindalbie shareholders will receive a pro-rata share in spin-off company Coda Minerals. Coda, which will seek to list on the ASX this year, will focus on the Mt Gunson copper-cobalt project in South Australia.

Gindalbie offshoot Coda sets exploration target for Emmie Bluff copper-cobalt prospect, launches big drilling campaign

Gindalbie Metals (ASX: GBG) has set an exploration target of between 43-71.6 million tonnes at copper-equivalent grades of between 0.53% and 2.3% for the Emmie Bluff prospect, part of its Mt Gunson project in South Australia. Gindalbie, which intends to spin off the Coda Minerals subsidiary that holds the Mt Gunson project to existing shareholders, said two exploration programs for Emmie Bluff were in advanced planning. One of the programs would include 28 diamond drill holes for 12,000m. A 2D seismic survey is also planned. Subject to Gindalbie shareholder approval, Coda will next month become an independent unlisted company, with about $7m cash, no debt and rights to 75% of the exciting Mt Gunson project. The Coda demerger is part of a broader transaction that will see the rest of Gindalbie acquired by Ansteel, for 2.6c cash per Gindalbie share. Gindalbie shareholders will vote on the Ansteel acquisition and the concurrent Coda demerger at scheme meetings on 3 July.

Independent expert says Ansteel takeover of Gindalbie fair and reasonable, Gindalbie directors urge 'yes' vote

Gindalbie Metals has urged shareholders to vote in favour of a cash takeover by Ansteel and the demerger of Gindalbie’s copper-cobalt exploration subsidiary, Coda Minerals. Under the terms of the Ansteel takeover, Gindalbie shareholders will receive 2.6¢ cash per share. In addition, Gindalbie shareholders will receive one Coda share for every 45 Gindalbie shares that they hold.
