JSE listed producer Wescoal has emerged as a possible inclusion to the Ata consortium with an equity injection:

https://irhosted.profiledata.co.za/wescoal/....aspx?id=320986

I think the IER will come back with a valuation around the 45-50c range and Ata will need to bump up the consideration to gain board approval (on the back of IER declaring it's not fair nor reasonable).Will having Wescoal on board provide the flexibilty to bump the bid?

Good luck, JSB.

A new player/offer could add some spice, but I think you are probably right

Thanks Blacksheep. I have a feeling its a firmed up Ata Resources proposal, but will be happily proved wrong

In a TH - " to allow the directors to consider a binding conditional offer received by Universal Coal for the entire issued share capital of Universal Coal. "

Received an indicative, non-binding conditional proposal from Ata Resources Pty Ltd at $0.35 per share. 27.5% shareholder AMED has already flagged intentions to vote in favour. 29% holder Ichor Coal yet to decide and will need shareholder approval to vote in favour and tender their shares into the offer. The scheme needs 75% of the register to vote in favour and a 50% headcount majority.

Bid values the company at ~3.2x FY18 EV/EBITDA. The company is in late stages to acquire the NBC project (and Brakfontein development ready subject to signing a CSA with Eskom) to push production volumes out from 4.7Mt to 7Mt by end of CY19, which doesn't seem reflected in the bid price. Management have a pretty good track record of executing, so not entirely convinced $0.35 per share is enough to get it over the line.

Announced to market that they exceeded FY18 guidance by 28%. Despite a 4.24% jump, it's still only trading on 3x EV/EBITDA.
