A new suitor for Genex?Â
As reported by The Australian, an undisclosed group is âmaking inquiries around the market about launching a rival bid for the businessâ.
The group is said to be ânot private equityâ and a company that operates in Australia.
The speculated names include Sundance Energy Australia Ltd (ASX: SEA), Alinta Energy, and other companies with energy assets on Australiaâs east coast.
On Monday, Genex rejected an unsolicited acquisition attempt from a group consisting of AtlassianÂ co-founder and co-CEO Scott Farquharâs Skip Capital and Stonepeak Partners. The bid offered 23 cents per share for the company.
Genex powerâs board of directors said the offer undervalued the company but it was open to a counter-offer with a revised amount.
