Rumour in AFR that Monadelphous are looking to pick up some scraps from HWE:

 

The sad story of resources contractor Henry Walker Eltin took another unfortunate turn this week. After the company entered voluntary receivership in January and its founder and chairman Neville Walker died in February, receivers this week told shareholders not to expect any money back.

 

Clough, another struggling Perth based resources contractor, acquired HWE's West Australian civil construction business for $1 million in May.

 

The receivers now expect to sell HWE's core contract-mining business for up to $300 million before Christmas.

 

There are reportedly only two buyers left in the race, both of which are Australian.

 

One is known to be engineering giant Leighton Holdings, which could absorb HWE with little effort into its Thiess or Leighton Contractors businesses.

 

The identity of the other possible buyer is less clear, but there's a possibility it is Perth-based contractor Monadelphous Group.

 

HWE would be a far bigger bite for Monadelphous, and a "company making" deal if it could pull it off, given the quality of HWE's order book, client list and history.

 

Monadelphous has been such a performer that its market valuation has doubled in 2005 to about $320 million but its shares remain tightly held.

 

It is 10 per cent owned by its chairman and 10 per cent owned by packaging billionaire Dick Pratt's Thorney Investments.

 

An equity raising to fund an HWE bid would provide a welcome opportunity for other investors.

 

Whether it has the clout to go up against Leighton is another question.
