The post Cardinal Resources (ASX:CDV) share price drops as takeover deadline looms appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The Cardinal Resources Ltd (ASX: CDV) share price has dropped by almost 2% this morning, as the possibility of the company’s takeover remains uncertain just two days before an offer deadline.
This comes after one of its takeover suitors, Nord Gold, reminded Cardinal shareholders that the deadline for its offer is on 23 December.
The Cardinal share price is currently trading at $1.06, down 2 cents.
Nord Gold reminded shareholders of the impending deadline, saying that “Cardinal shareholders who want to benefit from Nord Gold’s prompt payment terms (two trading days after selling to Nord Gold), must sell their shares on-market before Nord Gold’s offer closes on 23 December.
Cardinal Resources has been pursued as a takeover target by three different companies, all with the same offer price of $1.05.
In June, Cardinal received a takeover bid from Hong Kong-based Shandong Gold at an offer price of 60 cents per share, valuing the company at around $300 million.
The Chinese company, which is the second-largest gold producer in China, then increased its offer price for Cardinal to $1.00 per share in September, later increasing it again to $1.05 in November.
That higher offer was meant to outbid another interested party, Nord Gold, a Russian gold miner which had previously increased its own offer from 60 cents to 90 cents a share. Nord Gold also increased its offer price to $1.05 on 11 December.
Cardinal was also approached by another suitor in November, in the form of a Ghana-based company, Engineers & Planners Company Limited. That offer also stood at $1.05 per share.
